Powered by up to the latest 12th Gen Intel Core i9 14-core processor, these creator laptops allow users to create, manipulate and switch between multiple projects seamlessly, ensuring every task is handled efficiently. The hybrid architecture CPU design is optimized for superior content-creation performance, making Vivobook Pro 14X OLED, Pro 15X OLED and Pro 16X OLED the perfect creative partners.

Excellent graphics performance is critical for content creation, and the up to NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 Ti GPU, based on the latest NVIDIA Ampere architecture, enhances any creative workflow. For beginners or pros, its advanced graphics capabilities — such as ray-tracing, VR or AI-powered video editing — will let creators edit, render or stream their creations faster and clearer. And with the exclusive free NVIDIA Studio drivers, users will get the best out of all their creative apps.


 

 

Creativity thrives in a calm environment, so the new laptops feature advanced ASUS IceCool Pro (N7601, K6501) or IceCool Plus (N7401) cooling systems that minimize noise while maximizing overall system performance. The dual-fan design has up to six heatpipes, with up to four external exhaust vents[7] at the sides and rear of the laptop for rapidly and quietly dissipating heat to the exterior, and there are three fan modes to choose from that let users choose the ideal acoustic balance for the task at hand. With these ultra-efficient cooling systems, Vivobook Pro 16X OLED and 15X OLED can perform at a sustained peak TDP of up to 140 W.

 

Visual precision

For creators, the display needs to enhance the finest nuances of a creation, and the OLED HDR Dolby Vision displays on Vivobook Pro 14X OLED, 15X OLED and 16X OLED certainly deliver a premium viewing experience. The three-sided (Vivobook Pro 14X/15X OLED) or four-sided (Vivobook Pro 16X OLED) NanoEdge design has ultraslim bezels that maximize the screen-to-body ratio for more immersive visuals. The OLED displays feature up to a 120 Hz refresh rate with a 0.2 ms response time for smooth, natural-looking visuals.

The displays on Vivobook Pro 14X OLED and 15X OLED are VESA DisplayHDR True Black 600 certified for deep blacks and an ultra-high up to 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio, ensuring maximum visible detail in dark scenes. All the OLED displays are PANTONE Validated for professional-grade color accuracy, have a cinema-grade 100% DCI-P3 color gamut, an average Delta-E of less than two[8], and are TÜV Rheinland certified for eye-friendly low blue-light emissions and flicker-free operation. Additionally, the new ASUS Splendid technology allows users to select the color gamut to suit different creative tasks: they can choose from the ultravivid native sRGB color setting for creating web content or browsing, DCI-P3 for cinematic content, or Display P3 for movie-grade colors adjusted to fit everyday viewing in the real world. These displays will show the user's creations in their very best light.

 

Designed for creators

The exclusive ASUS DialPad[9] is a virtual rotary control on the mega-sized touchpad that puts creators in full control of parameter adjustments in compatible Adobe® creative software or custom functions in any other apps, so they can stay fully focused on the task at hand. It can be customized via the ProArt Creator Hub, which also gives users full access to other creator-related settings and features including performance modes and screen calibration.

The long-lasting high-capacity[10] battery is ready to power creative workflows throughout the day, whether the user is in a favorite coffee shop or seeking inspiration outdoors. A complete set of I/O ports1 covers all connectivity needs, from using existing peripherals to adding external displays and projectors. The HDMI 2.1 port can connect to up to a 4K 120 Hz or an 8K 60 Hz monitor; the USB 3.2 Gen 2 and Gen 1 Type-A ports offer broad compatibility; and the Thunderbolt 4 USB-C port supports fast charging, 4K external displays and up to 40 Gbps data transfers. An SD Express 7.0 microSD card reader allows fast and easy data exchange, and the 2.5 Gbe RJ-45 LAN port provides added flexibility for high-speed wired network connections.

The full-size ASUS ErgoSense keyboard has an incredibly satisfying feel, with the optimum bounce and travel calculated with fine-tuned precision. The keys have a long 1.4 mm travel, and the keycaps have a 0.2 mm dish for comfort. With a physical webcam shield and built-in fingerprint sensor on the power button, the new models also provide direct and time-saving privacy and security.

Vivobook Pro 14X and Pro 16X feature a premium all-metal design. For the ultimate toughness, Vivobook Pro 14X, Pro 15X and Pro 16X have been tested to meet the ultra-demanding MIL-STD-810H US military standard for reliability and durability. They have also passed ASUS laptop stress tests that far exceed the standards set by the industry.

 

Smart technology

With the increase in remote working and video conferencing, we’ve strengthened the ASUS AI Noise-Canceling Technology in Vivobook Pro 14X OLED, Pro 15X OLED and Pro 16X OLED with a built-in three-microphone array to further enhance 360° sound reception. The technology employs machine learning to isolate unwanted noise from human speech. Via the MyASUS app, users can switch between the Microphone Single-Presenter mode, which can filter out ambient noise, and Multi-Presenter mode which picks up all individual voices from different positions for optimum group conference-call quality. In addition, the AI Noise-Canceling Speaker feature filters out all ambient noise apart from human speech — so users can hear what everyone else is saying.

An FHD webcam, ASUS 3DNR technology, and the new webcam effects in MyASUS take the video-calling experience to the next level. 3DNR significantly upgrades the webcam image clarity, with a unique algorithm that sharpens images and performs real-time de-noising to make sure everything looks crisp and clear during video calls.

For unrivaled audio quality, Vivobook Pro 14X OLED, Pro 15X OLED and Pro 16X OLED have a stereo sound system certified by the audio experts at Harman Kardon. It delivers powerful, immersive sound that’s crystal-clear, providing superbly immersive entertainment and communications. The immersive multi-dimensional sound of Dolby Atmos indulges users in their favorite entertainment with sound that moves all around them for breathtaking realism in music, movies and TV. Our smart amplifier system uses a high-power amplifier that can increase speaker volume by up to 350% compared to a standard amplifier, with minimal distortion.

The surface of any laptop harbors thousands of potentially harmful bacteria. To keep Vivobook Pro 15 X OLED hygienic, it's protected by ASUS Antibacterial Guard — a surface treatment that keeps the bugs at bay. Antibacterial Guard has been scientifically proven[11] to inhibit the growth of bacteria[12] by more than 99% over a 24-hour period, ensuring the surfaces[13] of the laptop stay clean and sanitary for longer, and reducing the spread of potentially harmful bacteria via contact.
