    ZenBook Pro’s display features an ultra-wide color gamut of 72% NTSC, 100% sRGB and 74% Adobe RGB. In plain language, this means it can display more colors, more accurate colors and more vivid colors than any standard display.

    The ‘Pro' in ZenBook Pro isn't just an empty promise. Every single component — without exception — is chosen to deliver outstanding performance. A high-performance Intel® Core™ i7 processor, teamed with 16GB of RAM and gaming-grade NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX™ 960M graphics provide desktop-level performance, and the ultra-fast up to 512GB PCIe® x4 SSD storage with its transfer speeds of 1400MB/s ensures maximum responsiveness.

    ZenBook Pro UX501VX introduces the latest Thunderbolt® 3 connectivity from Intel®, which uses a USB Type-C port to give you unprecedented flexibility and hyper-fast data transfer speeds — up to 40Gbit/s via Thunderbolt® 3 , and up to 10Gbit/s via USB 3.1!

    SonicMaster Premium : Truly Incredible Sound

    ZenBook Pro features SonicMaster Premium, incorporating ICEpower®, Bang & Olufsen technology, developed by the ASUS Golden Ear audio engineering team for the ultimate audio experience. SonicMaster Premium produces sound that’s best-in-class and unlike anything you’ve ever heard from a laptop, with deep rich bass and crystal-clear vocals, even at high volume levels.

    Easy Audio Tuning

    Different sound sources need different audio settings, a task that is made incredibly easy with the exclusive AudioWizard software. With five presets for different types of audio - music, movies, speech, gaming and recording - AudioWizard ensures that you always get the best possible sound, whatever you’re listening to or recording. And if you want even more fine-tuning, the powerful and intuitive ICEsound® software gives you full manual control of advanced audio settings.

    Designed to Sound Amazing

    To achieve its premium sound quality, ZenBook Pro uses custom-built, high-quality speakers with oval voice coils and oversize shielded magnets for improved bass response. Combined with large resonant chambers and the aluminum chassis design, these produce a powerful full-frequency sound.

    Enjoy Noise-Free Voice Chat

    The integrated dual-element array microphone on ZenBook Pro gives you high-quality audio for video chats, gaming and video-conferencing. Noise suppression filters out ambient noise, while acoustic echo-cancelling reduces feedback and echoes. Beamforming focuses the recording area to a 60-degree cone so only your voice is picked up, not the background chatter.

    The Power of Touch

    The smarter touchpad

    Featuring the same 16:9 aspect ratio as the 4K/UHD display, the large glass-coated multi-touch touchpad on ZenBook Pro is designed to be as intuitive and accurate as possible. Smart Gestures simulate many of Windows 10 touchscreen function on the touchpad and also work in a wide range of applications.

    The Power of Touch

    Backlit for a better typing experience

    A keyboard is still the best way to get things done for most professionals, so naturally we gave ZenBook Pro the best available. The keys are expertly tuned to require just the right amount of force to press and have just the right amount of travel -1.6mm to be precise - so it’s both quiet and comfortable for extended periods of typing. The separate number keys are a boon for data entry, and the backlight lets you always be able to see the keys, wherever you’re working - even in complete darkness.

    The Power of Touch

    A touch of precision

    Touch is at the very heart of ZenBook Pro. Its ultra-responsive 10-point multi-touch display uses high-fidelity touch sensors that are 30% smaller and two times more sensitive than the industry standard requires. This gives you instant, accurate touch performance for writing, drawing, navigating and more.
