ASUS Zenbook 14X OLED Space Edition
Twenty-five years ago, the ASUS P6300 laptop spent more than 600 days in orbit on the famous Mir space station, the first continuously inhabited long-term research station in space. While the ASUS laptop was on board, Mir faced power outages and fires, but the laptop lasted the entire mission without defect.
The P6300 laptop set a high standard for every subsequent product designed and developed by ASUS. We have designed this very special Zenbook 14X OLED Space Edition to commemorate the past, and to continue exploring beyond the limits and go in search of incredible.
Featuring unique space-themed design details on the lid and palm-rest area and finished in a special Zero-G Titanium color, Zenbook 14X OLED Space Edition celebrates a key milestone in the history of ASUS laptops.
The out-of-this-world design embraces the ASUS spirit of innovation, encouraging users to start their voyage of discovery and explore beyond the limits.
Exclusive to the Space Edition is its futuristic ZenVision smart display, a 3.5-inch OLED companion display mounted externally on the lid. This can show customizable messages, themes and animations, allowing the user to give those around them a window into their lifestyle.
Built to withstand the rigors of space travel, the Space Edition complies with the ultra-demanding US Space Systems Command Standard SMC-S-016A testing protocols, so it is capable of withstanding extreme vibration which is 4 times more than our standard Military Grade durability.
Furthermore, it is able to operate in extreme climates, above and beyond the Military Grade capabilities. The Space Edition can resist and function in bitter cold conditions of – 24°C to blistering hot environments up to 61°C.
This out-of-this-world laptop is built to deliver stellar performance, powered by up to 12th Generation Intel Core i7 H-series processors and Intel® Iris® Xe graphics, 16GB RAM, a PCIe® 4.0 x4 SSD, and WiFi 6E. The expansive 16:10, 2.8K OLED 90Hz PANTONE® Validated touchscreen delivers ultra-realistic DisplayHDR™ True Black 500-certified visuals, with a 100% DCI-P3 gamut and TÜV Rheinland-certified eye care.
ASUS Zenbook Pro 14 Duo OLED
The new Zenbook Pro 14 Duo OLED is a powerful and compact dual-screen creator laptop that’s also the world’s first 14.5-inch 2.8K 120 Hz OLED laptop. It features a bigger and brighter next-gen 12.7-inch ScreenPad Plus secondary touchscreen, combined with the AAS Ultra auto-tilting design that improves both cooling and ergonomics.
The seriously powerful Zenbook Pro 14 Duo OLED is an Intel® Evo™-certified powerhouse that lets creators turn up their creative powers to the max. The performant 12th Gen Intel Core i7 12700H processor and creator-grade NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 Ti Laptop GPU are cooled for extreme performance — up to an 85-watt combined TDP — by ASUS IceCool Plus technology, aided by the innovative AAS Ultra mechanism, which vents the chassis efficiently and also tilts the next-gen
ScreenPad Plus secondary touchscreen by 12°, positioning it at a comfortable angle for touch and viewing to ensure a seamless and immersive experience.
For studio-class visuals, the world-leading 2.8K OLED HDR 16:10 main Dolby Vision touchscreen has a smooth 120 Hz refresh rate, an upgraded peak brightness of 500 nits, PANTONE Validated color accuracy, and a cinema-grade 100% DCI-P3 gamut, as well as TÜV Rheinland-certified eye care.

The flagship model in the new line-up is Zenbook Pro 16X OLED, a no-compromise creator laptop with a wealth of innovative design features all designed to aid on-the-go creativity, including the AAS Ultra mechanism for maximum performance. The outstanding power and performance of Zenbook 16X OLED is packed into a compact 2.4 kg unibody — CNC-machined for solidity from super-tough aerospace-grade 6000-series aluminum alloy — that’s just 16.9 mm slim, so it’s easy to get creative on the move.
The Zenbook Pro 16X OLED is an NVIDIA Studio validated laptop, powered by up to a 12th Gen Intel Core i7 12700H processor and an NVIDIA GeForce RTX™ 3060 Laptop GPU, Zenbook Pro 16X OLED delivers extreme mobile performance. The high-performance components at its heart need to be cooled effectively in order to reach their full potential.

The result is that the CPU and GPU can run at up to a 140 W combined TDP in Performance mode without throttling, and can run quieter than 40 dB in Standard mode.
