The ZenBook Pro features up to a 7th Generation Intel® Core™ i7 quad-core processor with 16GB of DDR4 RAM and gaming-grade NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1050 graphics. Its astonishing processing power shames most desktops, and its ultra-fast up to 1TB PCIe® x4 SSD storage delivers 3000MB/s read speeds for superb responsiveness.
Less heat, more power
Heat is the enemy of performance. The ZenBook Pro stays cool at all times with its highly efficient dual-fan cooling system that incorporates three heat pipes. Even though the new ZenBook Pro is more powerful than ever, this advanced cooling design keeps its external temperature 2.35°C cooler than the previous generation — ensuring maximum performance, anytime and anywhere.
ZenBook Pro is available with a 7th Generation Intel® Core™ i7-7700HQ quad-core processor, which is twice as powerful as a dual-core CPU. It offers 8% better performance, versus the previous generation, and also provides the ability to boost operating frequency to 3.8GHz. This amazing processor ensures that ZenBook Pro has the power to match your imagination and creativity.
ZenBook Pro uses up to the latest NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1050 gaming-grade graphics with up to 4GB of GDDR5 video memory to deliver performance that’s nearly twice as fast as a GeForce GTX 960M GPU. This DirectX® 12-compatible graphics monster delivers all the horsepower you need for even the most graphics-intensive tasks, such as 3D rendering, 4K UHD video playback or ultra-detailed 4K UHD gaming. Whether you’re a designer, a developer or a gamer, you’ll get the best possible graphics performance with ZenBook Pro.
Thinner edges, more display
The 15.6-inch NanoEdge multi-touch display of the ZenBook Pro is truly remarkable. Along with 4K UHD resolution and 178° wide-view technology, it features an incredibly thin bezel along all four edges of the screen. This super-slim bezel is just 7.3mm wide at its narrowest point, providing a screen-to-body ratio of 83% — so you see more display and less frame. The projected capacitive touch technology of the NanoEdge display has 10-point multi-touch support, so you can use multi-finger gestures for totally intuitive navigation and control. It also supports the ASUS Pen for ultra-precise sketching, writing or annotating.
4K UHD Resolution
More detail, more natural colors
With an astonishing resolution of 3840 by 2160 pixels — 4x more than Full HD — the 4K UHD NanoEdge display is something to behold. We’ve engineered 282 pixels into every single inch of the screen to make sure that everything is pin-sharp — from the finest details in photos and videos to the tiniest text. The ultra-wide 100% sRGB and 72% NTSC color gamut of the display produces incredibly natural-looking colors, and 178° wide-view technology ensures a perfect picture even at acute viewing angles.
Quad-speaker Harman Kardon sound
To equip ZenBook Pro with unsurpassed audio performance, the ASUS Golden Ear team joined forces with audiophile specialists Harman Kardon to produce the next generation of ASUS SonicMaster audio technology. And the results are astonishing. With an array of four separate high-quality speakers powered by two smart amplifiers, ZenBook Pro offers true surround-sound that’s 2.5x louder than the previous generation, with a 1.6x-wider frequency response. This unique combination of hardware and ASUS SonicMaster software is how ZenBook Pro delivers the most incredible sound you’ve ever heard on a laptop.
A comprehensive set of I/O ports — including two USB-C™ ports, two USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-A ports, and an HDMI port — offer ultimate, hassle-free connectivity with the ZenBook Pro. And the integrated dual-band 802.11ac Wi-Fi supports speeds that are up to 6x faster than 802.11n*.
* Dual-band 2x2 802.11ac compared to 1x1 802.11n.
For unlimited possibilities
The two USB-C™ ports on the ZenBook Pro incorporate the latest Thunderbolt™ 3 technology for versatile, ultra-fast connections. Along with 40Gbps data transfer speeds — 2x faster than Thunderbolt™ 2 and 8x faster than USB 3.1 Gen 1 — Thunderbolt™ 3 supports power delivery and dual 4K UHD external displays, making ZenBook Pro a superb choice for graphics professionals.
ZenBook Pro uses a high-capacity 73Wh lithium-polymer battery and clever ASUS thermal engineering to provide up to 14 hours of battery life for productivity tasks, or up to 10 hours of Full HD video playback*. And it includes fast-charge technology that lets you recharge ZenBook Pro up to 60% capacity in just 49 minutes.
* Tested using MobileMark 2014 Productivity mode and MobileMark 2014 Video Playback mode. Test configuration: Intel® Core™ i5-8G/Full HD panel/GeForce® GTX 1050 4GB graphics.
Keyboard and Touchpad
A laptop this powerful deserves an exceptional keyboard. The full-size silver-backlit keyboard of the ZenBook Pro offers impressive 1.5mm key travel, making typing more comfortable and more accurate. ZenBook Pro also includes a precision touchpad that’s cleverly engineered for maximum comfort and accuracy, with a glass covering for smooth control. The touchpad features palm-rejection technology and supports multi-touch gestures and handwriting.
One-touch access with Windows Hello
Accessing your ZenBook Pro couldn’t be easier or more secure, thanks to Windows Hello technology and the fingerprint sensor built into the touchpad. Now there’s no need to type in your password every time to log in — a single touch is all it takes!
Add a new dimension to your viewing experience. Now you can play games and watch your favorite 3D movies with Blu-ray Stereo 3D playback using passive or active shutter 3D glasses. InTru™ 3D technology by Intel in association with Dreamworks delivers it all in 1080p full high-definition resolution on your TV over HDMI 1.4.
Create, Edit, and Share Video in a Flash
Intel® Quick Sync Video uses the dedicated media processing capabilities of Intel® Graphics Technology to make video encoding tasks—such as creating DVDs or Blu-ray discs, creating and editing 3D videos, converting 2D video files into 3D, and converting video for portable media players and social networking sites—faster and easier.
Higher Performance When You Need It Most
Intel® Turbo Boost Technology 2.01 accelerates processor and graphics performance by increasing the operating frequency when operating below specification limits. The maximum frequency varies depending on workload, hardware, software, and overall system configuration.
Windows 10 offers more safety for your device, with features like Windows Hello and always-enabled free updates. Gamers experience best-in-class gameplay with Broadcast and Game Mode. And with built-in apps for 3D creation, photos, music, movies, maps and more - Windows 10 Home brings you more creativity and productivity than ever before.
See the World More Vividly
Intel® Clear Video HD Technology delivers cleaner, sharper images, more natural, accurate, and vivid colors. View images as they were meant to be seen on devices featuring Intel® Core™ processors with Intel® Graphics Technology.
Simplify Virtualization and Reduce Overheads
Intel® Virtualization Technology (Intel® VT) helps make virtualization practical by eliminating performance overheads, reducing complexity, and improving security with hardware assistance. Virtualization allows multiple workloads to share a common set of resources so that a variety of workloads can co-locate while maintaining full isolation from each other.
Bluetooth is a proprietary open wireless technology standard for exchanging data over short distances (using short-wavelength radio transmissions in the ISM band from 2400–2480 MHz) from fixed and mobile devices, creating personal area networks (PANs) with high levels of security.
Added Security with Faster Data Encryption
The Intel® Advanced Encryption Standard New Instructions (Intel® AES-NI) enable fast and secure data encryption and decryption for better performance and less risk from timing and cache-based attacks than table-based software implementations. Intel AES-NI supports usages such as standard key lengths, standard modes of operation, and even some nonstandard or future variants.
Protect Your Identity and Business
Intel® Identity Protection Technology (Intel® IPT) protects enterprises from being penetrated by stolen credentials and online user account access with an added layer of hardware-based security and authentication as well as a multifactor authentication framework to manage different authentication methods.
