The monitor is fully protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5.
Innovative cooling system useslightweight titanium construction. Heat-generating processors are located behind the screen and, when the laptop is opened, they are deflected by a hinge by 4.57 °, providing additional cooling.
The laptop has an SSD (PCIe NVMeGen3) for 1 TB, and DDR4 RAM (2666 MHz) received a volume of 32 GB. Communication is carried out using a 2-band Wi-Fi 5 (802.11ac) module and Bluetooth 5.0. The keyboard has a backlight and is equipped with a fingerprint sensor. Microphones support work with Cortana, and McAfee antivirus is installed on the laptop. The mass of the device is 2.9 kg, with a geometric dimension of 364.5 × 245 × 24.2 mm.
Next to the flagship ProArt StudioBookPro X, becomes the first device with NVIDIA Quadro processors, equipped with a second touch screen ASUS ScreenPad 2.0. The interface of the additional monitor is similar to a smartphone.
17-inch NanoEdge screen (1920 × 1200) equippedminimum 3.8 mm frames, bringing the usable area to 92%. The monitor supports 97% of the color gamut of the DCI-P3 space, is equipped with anti-reflective coating and has a color rendering ΔE <1.5.
ProArt StudioBook Pro X Notebook Hardwareruns on the ninth generation Intel Xeon E-2276M processor or Intel Core i7-9750H with 6 cores. The graphics are processed by the NVIDIA Quadro RTX 5000 graphics processor with 16 GB of video memory. Depending on the configuration, up to 128 GB of operational DDR4 (2666 MHz) memory and up to 6 TB of primary (PCIe NVMe Gen 3 x4 SSD × 2, HDD × 1) are installed in the computer.
Connectivity in a ProArt StudioBook Pro X Notebookprovides a 2-band Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) module and Bluetooth 5.0. The keyboard is full-sized, McAfee antivirus and Harman Kardon speakers are installed. The geometric dimensions of 382 × 265 × 28.2 mm with a mass of 2.5 kg. The body is made in gray.
The updated model range also includes ProArt StudioBook Pro 17/15 and ProArt StudioBook 17/15 laptops.
Computer ProArt StudioBook Pro 17 receivedQuadro RTX 3000 Max-Q graphics processor (6 GB of video memory), Intel Xeon E-2276M main processor (6 cores) or Intel Xeon E-2276M. For the ProArt StudioBook Pro 15 model, a Quadro RTX 5000 Max-Q video card with 16 GB of video memory and the main Intel Xeon E-2276M processor are provided.
ProArt StudioBook Pro 17 is equipped with a 17-inch screen (1920 × 1200), and ProArt StudioBook Pro 17 is equipped with a 15.6-inch screen (4K, 3840 × 2160).
ProArt StudioBook 17 and ProArt StudioBook models15 received similar displays and both are equipped with a GeForce RTX 2060 GPU with 6 GB of video memory. However, depending on the configuration, laptops come with one of three main processors: Intel Xeon E-2276M, Intel Core i7-9750H and Intel Core i7-9750H.
During the presentation, ASUS alsoannounced the compact, but high-performance, workstation ProArt Station D940MX, designed for professional graphics processing, in a case of up to 8 liters. The ninth generation Intel Core i9 processor, up to 64 GB of DDR4-2666 RAM and an NVIDIA Quadro RTX 4000 or GeForce RTX 2080 Ti graphics card are located on a double-sided printed circuit board. In addition, the station has two drives: a 512 GB solid-state PCIe and a 1 TB hard drive. On the front of the device are two Thunderbolt 3 connectors.
To determine the status of tasks onthe station is set LED indication. The increased efficiency of the cooling system was solved by installing an evaporation chamber, heat pipes and 4 fans in the system’s “hot spots”. The presence of a powerful heat dissipation system does not lead to increased noise - the system operates at 19 dB at rest and up to 37 dB at full load. Reliability The ProArt Station D940MX complies with the MIL STD 810G military standard.
The next novelty at the presentation of ASUS isHDR-1600 ProArt Display PA32UCG monitor with variable Adaptive-Sync 48–120 Hz screen refresh. The monitor supports 4K UHD resolution and has a backlight on 1152 mini-LEDs, providing high definition images with high brightness and color accuracy. The maximum screen brightness is 1000 Cd / m2, the peak is 1600 Cd / m2, and the contrast is 1,000,000: 1. Such parameters include the ability to support HDR standards: Dolby Vision, Hybrid Log-Gamma (HLG) and HDR10.
The use of quantum dot technologyallows the ProArt Display PA32UCG to have a wide color gamut compatible with DCI-P3, Adobe RGB, sRGB, Rec. 709 and Rec. 2020. High fidelity is ensured by 10-bit color depth and factory color rendering calibration. Calibration technology ProArt Hardware Calibration saves color profiles in the monitor memory for the same image when connected to various signal sources. The monitor is equipped with two Thunderbolt 3 connectors, one DisplayPort, three HDMI and one USB hub, for external connection of drives.
Another new ASUS product is a laptopASUSPRO B9 (B9450), positioned as the most compact and lightweight computer for doing business.
