The ASUS ROG Zephyrus Duo 15 is now available in SA and if you have R89,999 to spend then it could be one of the best and most advanced gaming laptops on the market. No really. The device packs some pretty sweet features including a 14.1-inch ROG ScreenPad secondary display which is designed to be tilted for viewing comfort. In addition, it supports touch and stylus input.
When it comes to the power inside this beastly machine, gamers can expect nothing but the best. The integrated GeForce RTX 2080 Super GPU combined with the 10th Gen Core i9 CPU will handle any game you throw at it. It is backed by a 4K Pantone display that features ASUS ProArt True Color Technology.
As for cooling, the new 28.5mm opening between the main display and the fancy titled screen allows for new air intake to keep things cool. In addition, the Intelligent cooling system with a liquid metal thermal compound allows for the CPU to stay cool during the most intense gaming and rendering session.
The ROG ScreenPad is the killer feature in the ASUS ROG Zephyrus Duo 15. As you open the device, the display slowly tilts up at the same time. It allows the extra display to tilt at 13-degrees for a comfortable viewing angle. It also means the display is easily available for touchscreen interaction. The screen includes a range of overlayed apps that lets users control their fan speed, keep chats and stream controls at the ready and even load up workflow apps to help improve general productivity.
ASUS claims the ROGScreenpad works for gaming, streaming, content creating and multitasking.
