ASUS eBook Pro Duo 15 OLED (UX582) is an ultra-powerful 15-inch laptop with dual 4K / UHD displays and an optional Screen Pad Plus, angled towards the user, just as wide as the main OLED display. The additional large screen opens up almost limitless possibilities for creative work in multitasking mode. eBook Pro Duo 15 OLED delivers superior performance with premium hardware, up to the latest Intel® Core ™ i9 processor and NVIDIA® GeForce RTX ™ 3070 graphics. NVIDIA Studio Certification confirms this model is the best choice for media creation.
In eBook Pro Duo 15 OLED, the optional Screen Pad Plus has a mechanism that automatically lifts it up to a 9.5 ° angle. This tilt makes it even more convenient to work with the additional screen, and in addition, possible glare is eliminated. High speed performance on two screens is simultaneously provided by powerful hardware components, in the maximum version – the latest Intel Core i9 processor and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 graphics card based on the NVIDIA Ampere microarchitecture, which provides excellent smoothness in games and support for real-time ray tracing technology. In addition, the computing power of the GPU can be used to accelerate professional applications, including video processing, 3D objects and animation.
eBook Pro Duo 15 OLED is equipped with a full range of modern connectors, including two USB-C® Thunderbolt 3 ports, and wireless connectivity features the latest generation WIFI 6 (802.11ax), which boosts wireless speeds to unattainable speeds. eBook Pro Duo 15 OLED comes with a 1TB Pie® 3.0 X 4 SSD and 32GB of RAM for the ultimate in hardware.
Thanks to its virtually bezel-free design, the main screen has a 93% screen-to-body ratio. This gorgeous 4K OLED touchscreen display with HDR support and 1,000,000: 1 contrast ratio delivers superb deep darks with VESA Displayed ™ 500 True Black certification, and PANTONE® Validated for flawless color fidelity.
eBook Duo 14 Notebook PC (UX482)
ASUS eBook Duo 14 (UX482) is an Intel Evo ™ certified 14-inch laptop with Screen Pad Plus, which complements the main Nano Edge FHD display and is great for multitasking. The sleek 16.9mm chassis houses high-performance hardware, including an 11th Gen Intel Core processor paired with Intel Iris® e graphics or NVIDIA® GeForce® MX450 discrete graphics.
Like the UX582, eBook Duo 14 has a secondary Screen Pad Plus with a mechanism that automatically lifts it up at a 7 ° angle for comfortable viewing and eliminates glare. Thanks to the extremely narrow bezel, the main screen occupies 93% of the surface area of the lid. Its maximum brightness is 400 cd / m2, and its wide color gamut (100% sRGB) delivers impeccably accurate color reproduction, which is confirmed by PANTONE Validated certification. Another certification, TÜV Rhineland, guarantees eye protection during extended use behind the screen by reducing the intensity of potentially harmful blue light. eBook Duo 14 offers up to 17 hours of battery life and can be recharged via USB-C using a Power Delivery-certified adapter or a conventional USB-C charger.
eBook Duo 14 has a variety of peripherals, including a pair of USB-C Thunderbolt ™ 4 ports with Power Delivery and DisplayPort functionality. The highest wireless speed is provided by the built-in WIFI 6 (802.11ax) module and ASUS WIFI Master proprietary
Innovative technology in eBook Pro Duo 15 OLED and eBook Duo 14
The ASUS eBook Pro Duo 15 OLED (UX582) and ASUS eBook Duo 14 (UX482) laptops come with the advanced Screen pert 2 software for a comfortable user experience with two displays at the same time.
The ASUS Control Panel app for the Screen Pad Plus, also included in both models, allows you to fine-tune controls in your media creation software, such as brush size, color saturation, layer opacity, and more.
The eBook Pro Duo 15 OLED and Benbrook Duo 14 2 both support the active ASUS Pen with 4,096 sensitivity levels. It is an incredibly handy tool for bringing creative ideas to life – it allows you to sketch or write something by hand right on your laptop screen.
The updated Active Aerodynamic System (AAS Plus) helps keep eBook Pro Duo 15 OLED and eBook Duo 14 running at peak performance. The Ergo Lift swivel mount automatically raises the optional Screen Pad Plus at an angle to the surface. As a result, the movement of air currents to cool internal components is improved by 49%. 3
