Product Overview

Designed to Entice, Crafted to Perform
ZenBook Pro 15 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 15 has been crafted to make it faster, more powerful and more amazing than the previous generation — including its latest 8th Generation Intel® Core™ i9 hexa-core processor, gaming-grade NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1050 graphics, and its Harman Kardon-certified audio system. And every detail of its finish makes ZenBook Pro 15 more beautiful than ever — including its precision-engineered solid-aluminium unibody and stunning 4K UHD NanoEdge display. The new ZenBook Pro 15 is not just better: it’s the best.

Enduring Elegance, Timeless Style
The understated luxury and refined profile of ZenBook Pro 15 belies the power inside. Its precision-crafted solid-aluminium unibody with its iconic Zen-inspired spun-metal finish features elegant Rose Gold diamond-cut edges that perfectly complement the gorgeous new Deep Dive Blue colour scheme. At just 18.9mm thin, with a travel-friendly weight of only 1.86kg, ZenBook Pro 15 is a gorgeous powerhouse that you can take anywhere.

Sleek and Elegant Design
ZenBook Pro 15 is created via a complex process that requires over 40 steps to complete. The unibody is precisely carved from a single block of aluminium, and the lid is treated to a multi-stage polishing procedure to create the iconic ultrafine 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 rose gold shine. The result is a breathtakingly exquisite laptop that offers the perfect combination of portability and productivity.

Supreme Performance
ZenBook Pro 15 features up to an 8th Generation Intel® Core™ i9 hexa-core processor with 16GB of DDR4 RAM and gaming-grade NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1050. Its astonishing processing power shames most desktops, and its ultrafast up to 1TB PCIe® x4 SSD storage delivers 3000MB/s read speeds for superb responsiveness*.
*Specification may vary by model.

The World’s Fastest PCIe SSD Technology
ZenBook Pro 15 can be specified with up to a 1TB PCIe® 3.0 x4 SSD with up to 3Gbps read speeds and 1.7Gbps write speeds — easily outperforming the PCIe x2 and SATA 3 SSDs used in other laptops.
* Actual performance may vary according to usage and other factors.

Unstoppable Computing
ZenBook Pro 15 is available with a 8th Generation Intel® Core™ i9-8950HK hexa-core processor. It offers 29% better performance, versus the previous generation, and can also boost its operating frequency to 4.5GHz. This amazing processor ensures that ZenBook Pro 15 has the power to match both your imagination and your creativity.

The Power of Six
The incredible 8th Generation Intel Core i9 processor has six separate cores and a Turbo Boost frequency of up to 4.5GHz, making it one of the most powerful processors we’ve ever put in a laptop. It’s built for pure speed, capable of outgunning some of its rivals by up to 7%.

Gaming-Grade Graphics
ZenBook Pro 15 uses up to the latest gaming-grade NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1050 graphics and up to 4GB of GDDR5 video memory to deliver performance that’s nearly twice as fast as a GeForce GTX 950M GPU. This DirectX® 12-compatible graphics monster delivers all the horsepower you need for even the most graphics-intensive tasks, such as 3D rendering or 4K UHD video playback, and flawless gaming visuals. Whether you’re a designer, a developer or a gamer, you’ll get the best possible graphics performance with ZenBook Pro 15.

Less Heat, More Power
Heat is the enemy of performance. ZenBook Pro 15 stays cool at all times with its highly efficient dual-fan cooling system that incorporates three heat pipes. Even though the new ZenBook Pro 15 is more powerful than ever, this advanced cooling design ensures that it stays cool for maximum performance, anytime and anywhere.

Thinner Edges, More Display
The 15.6-inch NanoEdge multi-touch display on ZenBook Pro 15 is truly remarkable. Along with 4K UHD resolution and 178° wide-view technology, it features an incredibly thin bezel along all four edges of the screen. This superslim NanoEdge bezel provides 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 multitouch 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.

NanoEdge Display
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 at its narrowest point, giving ZenBook Pro 15 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 15 we managed to solve the problem, to ensure that the camera sits in its traditional position despite the thinner bezel.

ASUS Pen Support
ZenBook Pro 15 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.

More Detail, More Natural Colours
With an astonishing resolution of 3840 by 2160 pixels — 4x more than Full HD — the 4K UHD NanoEdge display is something to behold. We’ve engineered 282 pixels into every single inch of the screen to make sure that everything is pin-sharp — from the finest details in photos and videos to the tiniest text. The ultrawide 100% Adobe RGB and 95% NTSC colour gamut of the display produces incredibly natural-looking colours, with wide range colour gamut and colour calibration, explore the real world through the screen, and 178° wide-view technology ensures a perfect picture even at acute viewing angles.

Immersive 4K UHD Display
With 282 pixels per inch, everything is pin-sharp: from the finest details in photos and videos, to the tiniest text fonts. It’s a dream come true for anyone who needs the ultimate visual performance, and with the added benefit of super-accurate touch control, it’s simply amazing.

Colour Calibration
Built-in ASUS Calibration technology provides colour accuracy tuning and uniformity compensation to make things easy when it’s time to recalibrate ZenBook Pro 15’s display’s brightness and colour consistency.

Harman Kardon Sound
To equip ZenBook Pro 15 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 its large, powerful stereo speakers powered by a smart amplifier, ZenBook Pro 15 delivers sound that’s 1.4x 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 15 delivers the most incredible sound you’ve ever heard on a laptop.

Smart Amplifier: More Volume, Less Distortion
ZenBook Pro 15 uses speakers driven by smart-amplifier technology. This delivers 1.4x 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.

Comprehensive Connectivity
A comprehensive set of I/O ports — including two USB-C™ ports, two USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-A ports, and an HDMI port — give ZenBook Pro 15 the ultimate, hassle-free connectivity. And the integrated dual-band 802.11ac gigabit Wi-Fi supports speeds that are up to 12x faster than 802.11n.

Unlimited Possibilities
The two USB-C™ ports on ZenBook Pro 15 incorporate the latest Thunderbolt™ 3 technology for versatile, ultrafast 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 15 a superb choice for graphics professionals.

All-Day Battery
ZenBook Pro 15 uses a high-capacity 71Wh lithium-polymer battery and clever ASUS thermal engineering to provide up to 9.5 hours of battery life for productivity tasks. And it includes fast-charge technology that lets you recharge ZenBook Pro 15 up to 60% capacity in just 49 minutes.

No-Compromise Productivity
A laptop this powerful deserves an exceptional keyboard. The backlit keyboard on ZenBook Pro 15 offers impressive 1.5mm key travel, making typing more comfortable and more accurate. ZenBook Pro 15 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 15 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!

Use Your Voice to Control Your Day
Alexa is a cloud-based voice service that helps you with tasks, entertainment, general information, and more. Using Alexa is as simple as asking a question. Just ask to play music, read the news, control your smart home, tell a joke, and more — Alexa will respond instantly.

Ultratough: Military-Grade Durability
ZenBook Pro 15 meets the ultra-demanding MIL-STD 810G military standard for reliability and durability, undergoing a punishing test regime that includes extended tests for operation in harsh environments including extreme altitudes, temperatures and humidity. It has also passed ASUS internal laptop tests that far exceed the standards set by the industry.
