At CES 2023, ASUS unveiled its new ProArt Studiobook 16 3D OLED (H7604), Zenbook Pro 16X OLED (UX7602BZ), Zenbook Pro 14 OLED (UX6404), Zenbook 14X OLED (UX3404), and Vivobook Pro 16X OLED Laptops (K6604).
The date on which the laptop will be available for purchase as well as the price of the upcoming laptops has not been disclosed by Asus as of writing this article. Nevertheless, Tom’s Guide reported that it might go on sale at some point during the second quarter of 2023.
Zenbook Pro 16X OLED
In the announcement that it made, Asus stated that the 2023 Zenbook Pro 16X OLED is a laptop is designed exclusively for creators who are constantly on the move. This is due to the fact that it is both smaller and faster than its predecessors.
Intel and ASUS have collaborated to redesign the most recent iteration of the Zenbook Pro 16X OLED, which now goes by the model number UX7602BZ. It comes with a one-of-a-kind Intel processor and the most recent ASUS Supernova System-on-Module (SoM) Design.
The previously mentioned module packaging technique decreases the core area of the motherboard by 38%, which improves the overall cooling efficiency of the system. Additionally, it frees up additional space for the GPU power components, which enables the system to be outfitted with an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080 Laptop GPU. As a consequence of this, the portable device is able to deliver a GPU performance that is more consistent and of a higher quality, which contributes to the achievement of greater Thermal Design Power (TDP) values.
In relation to thermal design power (TDP), the cooling system of the 2023 Asus Zenbook Pro 16X OLED is another another selling element for the product. It makes use of a liquid metal thermal compound, which lowers the temperature of the CPU by up to 44.6 degrees Fahrenheit when it is operating in high-performance mode. This results in a total combined TDP of up to 155 watts.
When it comes to the memory of the laptop, it is equipped with 1 terabyte (TB) of M.2 NVMeTM PCIe® 4.0 Performance SSD and 32 gigabytes (GB) of LPDDR5X DRAM that is capable of operating at a frequency of 7500MHz.
The laptop also sports a 16-inch OLED display that is capable of HDR. This display has a refresh rate of 120 Hz, 550 nits of brightness, and a ratio of 16:10. It is interesting to note that it emits approximately 50 per cent less potentially damaging blue light, which reduces the likelihood that users would experience eye strain as a result of using it for extended periods of time.
The battery in the laptop has 96 WHrs of capacity. It has dimensions of 35.50 by 25.10 by 1.69 with ~1.78 cm thickness and weighs 2.40 kg. Out of the box, the laptop will seamlessly boot into Windows 11 Professional operating system.
Finally, it comes equipped with a Backlit Chiclet Keyboard Per-Key RGBW with N-key Rollover, a Precision and Support Touchpad, an FHD camera with a privacy shutter, and N-key Rollover for the keys.
Zenbook 14X OLED
The Zenbook Pro 14 OLED, whose model number is UX6404, has a chassis that is as small as it is impressive in that it packs top-of-the-line performance and visuals.
The device sports a 14.5-inch OLED display that has a resolution of 2.8K (2,880 by 1,800) and a refresh rate of 120 Hz. In addition, the 16:10 display offers a factory color calibration of Delta E 2, certification from DisplayHDR for True Black 600, support for touch inputs, and coverage of 100% of the color gamut defined by DCI-P3.
ASUS’s Zenbook 14X OLED laptop now comes equipped with Intel Raptor Lake central processing units (CPUs), with the Core i9-13900H being the most powerful option available for the 14-inch device. In addition, Asus improved the graphics processor in the Zenbook 14X OLED, moving it from an RTX 2050 to an RTX 305. A 70 Wh battery, up to 1 TB of PCIe 4.0 storage, and 32 GB of LPDDR5-4800 RAM are all included in the brand-new Zenbook 14X OLED from Asus. Included in this package are a pair of Thunderbolt 4 ports, a port for USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-A, and an HDMI 2.1 (TMDS) connection.
