ASUS announced ZenBook Pro Duo (UX581), a laptop featuring the new ASUS ScreenPad Plus, a revolutionary 14-inch full-width secondary touchscreen that expands and enhances the interactive capabilities offered by the original ASUS ScreenPad.
ScreenPad Plus offers endless creative possibilities for content creators, allowing productivity-enhancing workflows and easy multitasking. It integrates seamlessly with the primary display, and the built-in ScreenXpert software includes a wide selection of useful apps, tools and utilities that allow users to easily enjoy the efficiency benefits of ScreenPad Plus.
Extreme performance for effortless creativity is provided by up to 9th Generation Intel processors, combined with up to 32GB RAM and an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 GPU, with ultrafast storage provided by up to a 1TB PCIe 3.0 x4 SSD.
ZenBook Pro Duo features a stunning 4K UHD (3840 x 2160) OLED touchscreen for breathtaking visuals, a 4K (3840 x 1100) ScreenPad Plus and an ASUS NumberPad dual-function touchpad. The display is a frameless four-sided ASUS NanoEdge design, with ultraslim bezels for immersive visuals and an ultracompact form factor.
A 14-inch ultraportable variant, ZenBook Duo (UX481), is also available, featuring a frameless four-sided NanoEdge FHD display and an FHD ScreenPad Plus. It’s powered by up to an Intel Core i7 processor and a GeForce MX250 GPU.
ZenBook Pro Duo features the latest version of the ASUS NumberPad, an LED-illuminated numeric keypad integrated into the touchpad. There’s also Amazon Alexa voice support, with a dedicated light bar at the front of the laptop that illuminates to indicate it’s listening.
Adaptive functions, pioneered in the original ScreenPad, also offer enhanced workflow. ASUS is working with developers including Corel to optimize adaptive ScreenPad tools for the ultimate productivity. However, any Windows app can be used with ScreenPad Plus, with no need for a specific ScreenPad Plus-enabled version.
An up to 1TB PCIe 3.0 x4 SSD ensures ultrafast data access at all times, and the full set of I/O ports includes a Thunderbolt 3-enabled USB Type-C (USB-C) port. The latest Intel Wi-Fi 6 with Gig+ (802.11ax) takes wireless speeds to the next level, for super smooth connections to the world.
To ensure silky-smooth operation and maximum performance are available at all times, there’s a dedicated Turbo Fan button to boost cooling at any time, and the Ergo Lift hinge improves airflow under the laptop for better thermal performance.
The 4K UHD NanoEdge OLED touchscreen on ZenBook Pro Duo is truly amazing, with a four-sided frameless design featuring an 89% screen-to-body ratio that gives users more screen, and fewer distractions. This brilliant display technology delivers ultra-vivid colors and deep blacks.
To display the most vivid, most realistic colors possible, ZenBook Pro Duo supports an exceptionally wide color gamut with 100% DCI-P3 coverage and HDR. The DCI-P3 color space — widely used in the motion picture industry — is increasingly the preferred choice of creative professionals for its increased range of possible colors, and makes images on ZenBook Pro Duo look simply stunning.
