Last year Asus revealed the Zenbook Pro Duo — the first laptop with a second display above the keyboard. It was a major hit, and one of our favourite laptops of the year. Today, Asus announced another dual-display machine, and this time it’s part of the phenomenal Zephyrus gaming range.
The Zephyrus Duo 15 features a main 14in 16:9 display with tiny bezels, while the touch-display above the keyboard sizes in at 14in with a 32:9 ratio. The bottom display can be lifted so you don’t have to strain your gamer’s neck injury again. It’s a thing.
Not just for gamers
The main display can be customised up to 300mHz/3ms or a 4K Adobe RGB if you’re prone to design stuff. Both of ‘em are Pantone validated, which makes this Zephyrus a design powerhouse, even though it’s actually a gaming machine.
Powering this beauty is an Intel 10th Gen i9-10980 and Nvidia’s brand new GeForce RTX 2080 Super with ROG Boost — Asus’ own overclocking software. This allows the machine to output 100W, up from 80W — all thanks to Asus’ swanky liquid metal cooling system. Yes, we’re talking Magneto-slushie type cooling.
The second display should prove particularly useful for gamers and creators alike. Mainly because it can run apps independently from the top display, including mobile apps. You can, for example, run PUBG on the main display while running PUBG Mobile below. Just a thought, if you have the reflexes of a viper.
