ASUS Is Increasing The Number Of Nebula Displays: ASUS is updating the gaming laptops it offers by adding HDR Mini LED panels, improved cooling, and more recent processors and graphics. It is more difficult to determine the value of the most recent models, however, because the manufacturer has not yet revealed the prices for them.
ASUS Is Increasing The Number Of Nebula Displays
This year, the Nebula display can be found in an unprecedented number of models. The branding of this particular corporation signifies displays that have high frame rates (at least 120Hz for 4K and QHD screens and 240Hz or more for 1080p displays), backlights that are brilliant, and colors that are vibrant. The new Nebula HDR variation, on the other hand, can be seen as an ultra-premium version that emphasizes Mini LED panels.
For instance, the Nebula HDR display included in the Strix SCAR 16 is a Mini LED and features a 240Hz of refresh rate in addition to 1,024 dimming zones, which is twice as many as the display found in last year’s model. Even though we do not yet have the prices, it is almost certain that those models will bring in the highest possible price.
Updated 13th-Generation Intel
Depending on the configuration, the new laptops that will be available in the second quarter of the year come equipped with either updated 13th-generation Intel or AMD Ryzen Zen 4 CPUs. The most powerful iterations of the new machines are equipped with graphics processing units (GPUs) from NVIDIA’s new GeForce RTX 40 Series Laptop lineup.
Cooling In Gaming Laptops
ASUS has included “intelligent cooling” in a number of its recently released products, such as the Zephyrus M16 and Strix models, which are available in 16-inch and 18-inch screen sizes respectively. The company was able to accomplish this by utilizing a heatsink that spans the entire width of the device’s back. In addition, ASUS included a third cooling fan in more of its models. (It was first seen in the Flow X16, which was manufactured in 2022.) The additional fan enhances the flow of air to the GPU as well as the other internal gear.
The Strix SCAR range, which ASUS refers to as the “performance flagships,” features screens that are larger than its 15- and 17-inch predecessors, at 16 and 18 inches respectively (including Nebula HDR in the most expensive tiers). In addition, ASUS claims that enhancements made to the cooling systems this year enable the aforementioned models to push greater frame rates. In the meantime, the Strix G16 and G18 are equivalents to the Strix 16 and 18 with the same CPU and GPU options, albeit at a little lower level of performance and possibly at a lower cost.
ASUS is also modernizing its ultra-slim and light Zephyrus product range. A Nebula HDR display may be found on the ROG Zephyrus M16. Top-of-the-line versions come equipped with a MUX Switch and NVIDIA Advanced Optimus, just like a number of other models. They use discrete graphics instead of the machine’s integrated graphics, which allows them to do the task almost instantly.
In addition, it is able to operate at a power level that is 25 watts greater than the 2022 model thanks to the full-width heatsink and the tri-fan technology. The Zephyrus G16, on the other hand, features the same processor and graphics options in addition to a QHD Nebula display that is capable of 240 hertz of refresh rate. The Zephyrus G14, which is its more compact sister, is equipped with a Nebula HDR display that has 504 dimming zones and 600 nits of peak brightness.
ASUS Duo 16
The ASUS Duo 16 is the most up-to-date model in the company’s series of eccentric laptops with two displays. As with the model from 2022, the main screen of the revised version is a 16-inch Mini LED panel, and underneath that is a more compact 4K display that may be used for multitasking. Additionally, it joins other models in offering the latest graphics technology from NVIDIA as well as MUX Switch in its most advanced configurations.
Additionally, the business upgraded its 2-in-1 tablet PCs for gamers, known as the ROG Flow. The Flow X13 features a 13-inch Nebula display that is capable of a refresh rate of 165 hertz and has a rotating hinge that can rotate a full 360 degrees.
Additionally, ASUS modified its chassis, making it 10mm thinner while doubling its battery capacity (from 62 to 75 Wh). However, the keyboard layout remained the same. Additionally, the business increased the size of its touchpad and altered the 2-in-1 hinge to have improved airflow and a more comfortable grip.
The Flow X16, which is the larger cousin of the Flow X13, features an HDR Mini LED touchscreen that has a 240Hz refresh rate and a peak brightness of 1,100 nits. In addition, the Corning Gorilla Glass DXC that is used in all of ASUS’ 2023 Flow products can boost the device’s durability by up to 40 percent while reducing glare. Meanwhile, the Flow Z13, a detachable that is comparable to the Microsoft Surface for gamers, has been upgraded with the most recent components from Intel and NVIDIA, as well as a QHD Nebula display that has a refresh rate of 165 hertz (Hz).
