Computex in Taiwan is one of the essential appointments for technology lovers. A little like car shows, it is an opportunity to admire prototypes or new products from established companies or promising startups.
Asus is one of the first releases in Computex and it is quite interesting: his ZenBook Pro Duo comes with two screens in 4K, a feature that makes me think if this is not going to be a trend for the years to come or just a “bridge” solution waiting for flexible and rollable screens not to take hold.
In addition to the usual physical keyboard, ZenBook Pro Duo does indeed have a main screen (15.6 inch 4K UHD with 16: 9 ratio) and a second screen, of all respect (a 14-inch 4K UHD called ScreenPad, with a resolution of 32: 9).
The company designed the notebook's internal software to allow the second screen to be used as an additional monitor or as an extension of the main one.
What's under the hood?
In terms of technical specifications the netbook is equipped with rather advanced components, starting with the latest generation of Intel processors, the 9th, with an i9-9980HK and 32GB of RAM. The video card is also equipped to spark with an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 (and 6GB of GDDR6 VRAM).
The picture is completed by a nice 1TB solid state drive, Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.0, an infrared webcam and 4 high sensitivity microphones to consult a virtual assistant even from afar.
To expand the offer Asus also presented a more "regular" version (well, well): a ZenBook Duo with two screens of 14 and 12.6 inches, with an i7 processor and 16GB of RAM.
There are no price indications yet, but from the characteristics read I know that you will have to give more than one hammer to the ceramic pig that you have somewhere. Don't say no, I see you. Other than if I see you.
