Asus rolls out new 15.6in ultraportables in Singapore

ASUS Singapore has launched its latest ultraportable notebooks, the ZenBook UX501 (pic above) and Republic of Gamers (ROG) G501 series gaming laptop.
 
The new notebooks offer 15.6-inch 4K/UHD (ultra-high definition) display with 8.2 million pixels for incredibly detailed visuals and lifelike colours, Asus Singapore said in a statement.
 
One of the thinnest laptops in its class, the ROG G501 is 20.6mm tall and weighs 2.06kg – ideal for gaming on the go, the company said – and features Hypercool technology for the coolest and quietest gaming in the market.
 
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.
