Aimed at users demanding the ultimate performance, ZenBook UX501 is a compact powerhouse that features the world’s fastest SSD (solid-state disk), the 512GB PCI Express x4 SSD, the company claimed.
The ROG G501 is powered by a 4th-generation Intel Core i7 processor and the new NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M graphics, while the ZenBook UX501 comes with a quad-core Intel Core i7 processor, and gaming-grade NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M graphics.
Both ultraportables feature a 15.6-inch, 4K/UHD display with 8.2-million pixels to give users sharper visuals and vibrant colours for an immersive viewing experience.
This in-plane switching (IPS) display has wide 178-degree viewing angles, giving improved contrast and colour consistency even when viewed from extreme positions in both the horizontal and vertical planes, Asus Singapore said.
In addition, the built-in HD camera provides excellent recording performance even in low-light environments, it claimed.
