ASUS ZenBook Pro 15 (UX580) Price, Features + Videos Revealed!

ASUS just launched the new ZenBook Pro 15 with its groundbreaking Screen Pad – an adaptive touchpad that doubles as a touchscreen display! Here are the ASUS ZenBook Pro 15 price list and full details, including videos on its key features and the Screen Pad technology!


ASUS ZenBook Pro 15 (UX580)

The new ASUS ZenBook Pro 15 continues the legacy of the ZenBook Pro family, offering top-of-the-line performance in a slim, premium form factor.

It is powered by the latest 8th Generation Intel Core processors with up to 16 GB of DDR4 memory, and NVIDIA GeForce graphics powering a 15-inch PANTONE-validated display with up to 4K UHD resolution. All packed into a chassis the size of a traditional 14-inch laptop!

The new ZenBook Pro 15 also boasts fast PCIe 3.0 x4 SSDs, and a wide range of connectivity options including Gigabit-AC WiFI, and two USB-C with Thunderbolt 3 ports. It also supports face recognition and has built-in support for the Amazon Alexa voice service.

The ASUS ZenBook Pro 15 (UX580) is the first ZenBook Pro model to feature the new ASUS Screen Pad technology.


Touch The Future With ASUS Screen Pad

Screen Pad is a Windows Precision Touchpad (PTP) combined with an interactive 5.5-inch FHD touchscreen that intelligently adapts to what the user is doing. It offers helpful functions depending on the context, making it easier and quicker to multitask. A simple press of the F6 function key toggles Screen Pad between touchscreen mode and touchpad mode.

Screen Pad can be used in several different ways. Special dedicated Screen Pad Apps run within Screen Pad itself, with a variety of useful tools including Calculator, Music Player, NumKey and Launcher. Launcher allows users to open or switch between desktop apps via user-customizable shortcuts. NumKey turns Screen Pad into a handy numeric keypad for data entry. Screen Extender mode allows Screen Pad to be used as an extension to the main display, further aiding multitasking and productivity.

Selected desktop apps — at present limited to Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint, but with other popular apps in the pipeline — offer even closer integration with Screen Pad, with adaptive menus and editing controls on Screen Pad that change automatically according to the app and what task is being performed.

Another innovative form of adaptive Screen Pad integration is via browser extensions, such as the Screen Pad YouTube Player for Chrome: this puts video playback controls for YouTube videos at the user’s fingertips.

Live updates ensure Screen Pad is always running the latest version, and new apps can be downloaded from the Microsoft Store. A Screen Pad SDK is available for developers wishing to create new apps and explore the endless possibilities of Screen Pad.

The ASUS TUF Gaming FX504 Gaming Laptop Revealed!

April 03, 2018 — ASUS today announced TUF Gaming FX504, the first laptop in the new TUF Gaming Series. Find out what are the key features of the ASUS TUF Gaming FX504 gaming laptop!


ASUS TUF Gaming FX504

To ensure system longevity and stable performance, the FX504 features the patented Anti-Dust Cooling (ADC), and it’s powered by the latest-generation Intel Core processor and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 10-Series graphics. The FX504 also features a gaming keyboard with a 20-million-key-press lifespan, a 15.6-inch 60Hz display, and 7.1-channel surround sound.

Performance and portability

FX504 is powered by up to 8th Generation Intel Core i7-8750HQ processor, and features up to NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti graphics with full Microsoft DirectX 12 support. With a slim 2.5cm chassis and an overall weight of just 2.3kg, FX504 offers a combination of performance and portability that’s great for on-the-go multitasking, entertainment, and gaming.

HyperCool technology

The thermal design of FX504 significantly prolongs its lifespan and provides stable cooling during intense gaming marathons. HyperCool technology pairs the patented ADC system with Fan Overboost. The ADC system expels harmful dust particles and dirt through two dedicated tunnels to prevent build-up in the thermal fins. The Fan Overboost function provides users with three different modes for the perfect balance between fan performance and noise level.

Additional cooling features include a pair of copper heat pipes and a dual-fan system to cool the processor and graphics card independently, while the trapezoid-cut lid optimizes airflow to increase thermal efficiency by up to 27% compared to a standard laptop chassis. An intelligently-placed fan is located right below the WASD key group to ensure the keyboard stays cool even during long gaming sessions. 

Immersive 7.1-channel surround sound

[adrotate group=”2″]

DTS Headphone:X ensures home theater-quality 7.1-channel surround sound on headphones, laptop speakers, and external speakers. The Game profile enables the audio engine to process sounds more accurately than ever, so gamers are completely aware of what’s going on around them, giving them a competitive edge in fast-paced titles. In addition, the built-in equalizer allows for detailed audio adjustments for those looking to tailor settings to their own tastes.

Durable keyboard with 20-million-key-press lifespan

Designed and built to exacting TUF Gaming standards, FX504 has a desktop-style gaming keyboard that’s perfectly optimized for extended gaming and typing sessions. It’s one of the most durable keyboards to be found in a laptop, with a lifespan of 20 million key presses — double the current industry standard.

The scissor-switched keys have 0.25mm keycap curves and offer 1.8mm of travel for smooth and tactile keystrokes, and are backlit for gaming or working in the dark. Exclusive Overstroke technology enables earlier actuation and a longer over-stroke distance for fast, accurate, and effortless keystrokes. Highlighted WASD keys, a broad space bar, and isolated arrow keys enable fast and accurate control.

Superfast Wave 2 Wi-Fi

For high-performance wireless connectivity, FX504 incorporates the latest Intel 802.11ac Wave 2 Wi-Fi for data transfer rates of up to 1.7Gbps — 12X-faster than baseline 802.11b/g/n. Additionally, the 2×2 MIMO configuration provides up to 30% wider coverage than a 1×1 configuration. Users can stream high-res videos or play online with fewer dropped connections, even if FX504 is far away from the router.

FireCuda storage

Performance with durability is demanded for all TUF products, so FX504 features a 1TB FireCuda solid-state hybrid disk (SSHD) that loads games more than twice as fast as the more commonly used 1TB 5400rpm traditional HDD.

FireCuda’s flash memory acts like a cache by saving frequently accessed data without accessing the hard drive, resulting in lower power consumption, increased system performance and durability. It also provides a quieter, more stable system.
