    Create stunning content with RTX Studio laptops

    The latest NVIDIA Quadro RTX and GeForce RTX GPUs utilize the NVIDIA Turing™ architecture and are the first to support real time ray tracing, capable of rendering beautiful scenes with more accurate light effects, shadows, and reflections. The AI prowess of RTX GPUs handles time consuming, repetitive tasks such as accelerating upscaling, photo enhancements, color matching, face tagging, and style transfer. The latest ASUS laptops, including ZenBook Pro Duo, StudioBook W700G3T, and StudioBook W500, take advantage of RTX capabilities, catering to the needs of content creators and meeting the stringent requirements of the NVIDIA RTX Studio program. RTX Studio laptops are precision crafted to deliver dramatic improvements in productivity and performance across everyday creative apps.

ScreenPad Plus enables different creative scenarios — such as video editing with auxiliary split screens, intuitive controls with digital instruments and cross-screen 3D design and editing — that open up new possibilities for creators.

    ZenBook Pro Duo is powered by up to a 9th Generation Intel® Core™ i9 eight-core processor with up to an unprecedented 5GHz Turbo Boost frequency and 32GB of DDR4 RAM.
