The ZenBook Pro features up to a 7th Generation Intel® Core™ i7 quad-core processor with 16GB of DDR4 RAM and gaming-grade NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1050 graphics. Its astonishing processing power shames most desktops, and its ultra-fast up to 1TB PCIe® x4 SSD storage delivers 3000MB/s read speeds for superb responsiveness.
Less heat, more power
Heat is the enemy of performance. The ZenBook Pro stays cool at all times with its highly efficient dual-fan cooling system that incorporates three heat pipes. Even though the new ZenBook Pro is more powerful than ever, this advanced cooling design keeps its external temperature 2.35°C cooler than the previous generation — ensuring maximum performance, anytime and anywhere.
ZenBook Pro is available with a 7th Generation Intel® Core™ i7-7700HQ quad-core processor, which is twice as powerful as a dual-core CPU. It offers 8% better performance, versus the previous generation, and also provides the ability to boost operating frequency to 3.8GHz. This amazing processor ensures that ZenBook Pro has the power to match your imagination and creativity.
ZenBook Pro uses up to the latest NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1050 gaming-grade graphics with up to 4GB of GDDR5 video memory to deliver performance that’s nearly twice as fast as a GeForce GTX 960M GPU. This DirectX® 12-compatible graphics monster delivers all the horsepower you need for even the most graphics-intensive tasks, such as 3D rendering, 4K UHD video playback or ultra-detailed 4K UHD gaming. Whether you’re a designer, a developer or a gamer, you’ll get the best possible graphics performance with ZenBook Pro.
Thinner edges, more display
The 15.6-inch NanoEdge multi-touch display of the ZenBook Pro is truly remarkable. Along with 4K UHD resolution and 178° wide-view technology, it features an incredibly thin bezel along all four edges of the screen. This super-slim bezel is just 7.3mm wide at its narrowest point, providing a screen-to-body ratio of 83% — so you see more display and less frame. The projected capacitive touch technology of the NanoEdge display has 10-point multi-touch support, so you can use multi-finger gestures for totally intuitive navigation and control. It also supports the ASUS Pen for ultra-precise sketching, writing or annotating.
4K UHD Resolution
More detail, more natural colors
With an astonishing resolution of 3840 by 2160 pixels — 4x more than Full HD — the 4K UHD NanoEdge display is something to behold. We’ve engineered 282 pixels into every single inch of the screen to make sure that everything is pin-sharp — from the finest details in photos and videos to the tiniest text. The ultra-wide 100% sRGB and 72% NTSC color gamut of the display produces incredibly natural-looking colors, and 178° wide-view technology ensures a perfect picture even at acute viewing angles.
Quad-speaker Harman Kardon sound
To equip ZenBook Pro with unsurpassed audio performance, the ASUS Golden Ear team joined forces with audiophile specialists Harman Kardon to produce the next generation of ASUS SonicMaster audio technology. And the results are astonishing. With an array of four separate high-quality speakers powered by two smart amplifiers, ZenBook Pro offers true surround-sound that’s 2.5x louder than the previous generation, with a 1.6x-wider frequency response. This unique combination of hardware and ASUS SonicMaster software is how ZenBook Pro delivers the most incredible sound you’ve ever heard on a laptop.
A comprehensive set of I/O ports — including two USB-C™ ports, two USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-A ports, and an HDMI port — offer ultimate, hassle-free connectivity with the ZenBook Pro. And the integrated dual-band 802.11ac Wi-Fi supports speeds that are up to 6x faster than 802.11n*.

For unlimited possibilities
The two USB-C™ ports on the ZenBook Pro incorporate the latest Thunderbolt™ 3 technology for versatile, ultra-fast connections. Along with 40Gbps data transfer speeds — 2x faster than Thunderbolt™ 2 and 8x faster than USB 3.1 Gen 1 — Thunderbolt™ 3 supports power delivery and dual 4K UHD external displays, making ZenBook Pro a superb choice for graphics professionals.
ZenBook Pro uses a high-capacity 73Wh lithium-polymer battery and clever ASUS thermal engineering to provide up to 14 hours of battery life for productivity tasks, or up to 10 hours of Full HD video playback*. And it includes fast-charge technology that lets you recharge ZenBook Pro up to 60% capacity in just 49 minutes.
