The most popular products at Asus’ Create the Uncreat event are not the Vivobook Pro OLED or Zenbook OLED, but the StudioBook 16 OLED from the manufacturer’s ProAd line.
The ProArt range is primarily aimed at creative professionals: photographers, video, CAD or CAD experts and many more. With its new StudioBook 16 OLED workstations, Asus wants to meet their needs.
Asus offers four configurations with a single chassis and a single screen, apparently Olet. So the chassis is particularly sober, with the Asus logo with matte black finish and glossy finish. There are also air outlets on each side and back of the system, which indicates considerable cooling.
A body wheel
The main novelty of the StudioBook 16 OLEDs is the presence of a physical dial called the Asus Dial. According to Asus this wheel does not come out of the chassis and is not accidentally activated while typing. Like the VivoBook Pro with a virtual wheel (dialpad), the Asus Dial is compatible with four Adobe applications (Ae, Ps, LRc and Pr) and allows you to customize its application to suit your software.
The touchpad is not left, a third button is added and acts as a “click-wheel” like a mouse. The touch surface is supported with MPP1.5 stylus up to 1024 pressure points.
The StudioBook 16 OLED connectors are sophisticated: one HDMI 2.1 port, two USB3.2 Gen2 ports, two USB-C ports, one of which is compatible with the Intel versions of Thunderbolt 4 and an SD Express 7.0 card reader that can reach up to 1 GB / s.
The main element of the StudioBook 16 OLEDs is of course the screen. The OLED panel used by Asus has a resolution of 3840 x 2400 px in 16:10 format. Its brightness is reported with a delta E less than 2 at 550 cd / m² with colorization.
Asus announces 100% DCI-P3 color spectrum support and various certifications including Coleman and Pantone.
StudioBook 16 OLEDs are divided into two models: Pro and Non-Pro. The Pro model Nvidia RTX A2000 or A5000 previously embedded in professional graphics cards known as the Quadro.
They are available with the AMD Raison 9 5900HX processor for the W5600 version or the Intel Xeon W-11955M processor for the W7600 version. Both StudioBook Pro 16 OLED models are ISV certified (independent software vendors).
The StudioBook 16 OLED (non-Pro) GeForce RTX 3060 or 3070 is available with the AMD Raison 9 5900HX (H5600) and Intel Core i9-11900H (H7600) processor, the latter only for the GeForce 30X.
These 4 versions can accommodate up to 64GB DTR4.
These models are scheduled to be available in the 4th quarter at 5,599 for the H5600, 2,299 for the W5600 and 9,929 for the W7600 at special dealers.
