ZenBook Pro is designed to entice you with pure, unadulterated power. Power to create your dreams. Power to fuel your imagination. Power to do whatever you want to do, anywhere and everywhere. Every part of ZenBook Pro has been crafted to make it faster, more powerful and more amazing than the previous generation — from its latest 7th Generation Intel® Core™ i7 processor to its gaming-grade NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1050 Ti graphics and quad-speaker Harman Kardon surround-sound audio. And every detail of its finish makes it even more beautiful than ever before — including its precision-engineered solid-aluminum unibody and stunning Full HD NanoEdge display. The new ZenBook Pro is not just better: it’s the best.
Enduring elegance, timeless style
The elegant finish and refined profile of ZenBook Pro belies the power inside. Its precision-crafted solid-aluminum unibody features brilliant diamond-cut edges and the iconic Zen-inspired spun-metal finish on the lid, with two sophisticated color schemes — Royal Blue and Matte Black — that let you match your professional style. At just 18.9mm thin, with a travel-friendly weight of only 1.8kg, the ZenBook Pro is a gorgeous powerhouse that you can take anywhere.
Sleek and elegant design
ZenBook Pro is created via a complex process that requires over 40 steps to complete. The unibody is precisely carved from a single block of aluminum, and the lid is treated to a multi-stage polishing procedure to create the iconic ultra-fine spun-metal finish that gives it a lustrous, silky sheen. An advanced, computer-controlled machining process is then used to create the elegant diamond-cut edges, which are finely polished to a brilliant silver shine. The result is a breathtakingly exquisite laptop that offers the perfect combination of portability and productivity.
Matte Black is an amazing shade, expressing an outward calm with subtle hints at the awesome power hidden within.
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 Ti 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.
The world’s fastest PCIe SSD technology
ZenBook Pro can be specified with up to a 1TB PCIe 3.0 x4 SSD with up to 3Gbps reading and 1.7Gbps writing speeds — easily outperforming the PCIe x2 and SATA 3 SSDs used in other laptops.
* Actual performance may vary according to usage and other factors.
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.
In PCMark 08 tests, ZenBook Pro performed 1.37x faster than a competitor laptop powered by an Intel® Core™ i7-6700HQ processor. ZenBook Pro also outperformed its predecessor — powered by the Intel Core i7-6820HQ processor — by 1.05x.
ZenBook Pro uses up to the latest NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1050 Ti 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.
Unsurpassed graphics performance
Whether you’re a designer, developer, or a gamer, you’ll get the best possible graphics performance with ZenBook Pro. In 3DMark 11 tests, ZenBook Pro performed 1.33x better than a similar competitor laptop, and 1.8x better than the previous NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960-equipped model.
Thinner edges, more display
The 15.6-inch NanoEdge multi-touch display of the ZenBook Pro is truly remarkable. Along with Full HD 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.
Fitting a 15.6-inch display into a frame size that’s typical of a 14-inch laptop isn’t easy — but the NanoEdge bezel makes it possible. This super-slim bezel measures just 7.3mm at its narrowest point, giving ZenBook Pro an incredible 83% screen-to-body ratio. To create this amazing display, ASUS engineers had to overcome many technical challenges. For example, the best place for the camera is at the top of the display: but some rival thin-bezel designs make this impossible, meaning the camera has to be moved to an awkward location below the screen. For ZenBook Pro we managed to solve the problem, to ensure that the camera sits in in its traditional position despite the thinner bezel.
Support ASUS Pen
ZenBook Pro supports the ASUS Pen, so you can let your creativity flow. ASUS Pen can detect even the most minute pressure variations — in 1,024 steps from 10g all the way up to 300g. It also exceeds the industry accuracy standard, so you can hold it at angles of up to 45° without affecting the quality and placement of the lines you draw. With ASUS Pen — or other active stylus — you can jot down your thoughts, annotate diagrams or sketch out your creative ideas in an intuitive way with a natural, responsive feel.
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.
Smart amplifier: more volume, less distortion
The speakers of ZenBook Pro are driven by smart-amplifier technology that delivers 2.5x louder volume with superb fidelity by intelligently monitoring voice coil movement to prevent distortion and damage. Special algorithms auto-detect the physical limits of the speaker components, allowing them to be driven at peak volumes without risk of damage. The result is distortion-free audio at volume levels that are simply not achievable using traditional amplifier technology.
Each stereo channel uses a pair of high-quality speakers: one larger woofer that is designed to handle the low-frequency sounds, and one smaller tweeter that delivers crystal-clear high frequencies. The end result is a four-speaker stereo system with truly remarkable sound covering a wider range of frequencies than ever before.
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!
