ASUS today highlighted the fact that its 2022 line of thin and light Zenbook and Vivobook laptops now offers more high-performance EVO models than ever before, thanks to the impressive engineering and premium features of the latest 12th Gen Intel® H-series processors, with Thermal specifications. Design power (TDP) of up to 45 watts. With these innovations, even low-priced laptops like the Vivobook 14X/15X OLED (X1403/1503) now offer much more performance than was possible in previous generations.
The additional performance derived from these powerful CPUs – up to 2.5 times faster than previous generation ASUS notebooks – means users can enjoy enhanced productivity for creativity, gaming and entertainment in compact and lightweight laptops.
Benjamin Yeh, general manager, ASUS East EMEA, says: “The innovations that ASUS engineers have implemented in our latest laptops, together with our Intel partners, have enabled us to launch these amazing products for 2022. Their work in cooling technologies and chassis design is very important. Sometimes the improvements are invisible to customers, but they help us deliver incredible performance while keeping laptops compact and lightweight, which is exactly what customers are looking for.”
User preference for thin and light laptops is growing year after year, and solving the problem of how to improve performance levels without increasing size is a major engineering challenge. 2022 ASUS products offer innovative solutions to achieve these goals, including ultra-efficient and quiet cooling systems such as ASUS IceCool and AAS Ultra and 3D vapor chambers with AI-enhanced software. Additionally, the superior power efficiency of 12th Gen Intel Core processors means users can enjoy all the benefits of superior performance while maintaining battery life.
Performance is everything
The latest 12th Gen Intel Core processors deliver better performance with better power savings than ever before, thanks to their hybrid design with their combination of high performance and energy efficient cores. These cores intelligently engage computing tasks to improve gaming, streaming and multitasking performance, and their energy efficiency makes them ideal for delivering high performance in the thin and light designs that users increasingly prefer.
The powerful laptop also offers long-term benefits to the users. The lifespan of a laptop can be up to seven years, and as operating systems and software evolve and become more demanding, users need a laptop with enough power reserve. With a TDP of up to 45W – up to 3 times more than the previous generation of laptop CPUs – H-series CPUs deliver plenty of power for the future.
To achieve maximum CPU performance in a thin and lightweight laptop, it is essential that the CPU stays cool, and this poses a major challenge for slim designs. The latest ASUS Zenbook and Vivobook laptops feature upgraded cooling technology, including new ASUS IceBlade fan designs, dual heat pipes and improved airflow control, and on the Zenbook Pro 16X OLED and Zenbook Duo 14X OLED models – there’s a 3D vapor chamber and Innovative Active Aerodynamic system (AAS Ultra) mechanism.
3D Vapor Chamber is an ASUS innovation that bends the vapor chamber to achieve better compatibility with motherboard components. AAS Ultra raises the back of the keyboard or secondary touchscreen to increase airflow outside the chassis by up to 30%.
With these cooling innovations, ASUS engineers can use top components such as the Intel Core i9 processor and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 GPU in ultra-thin laptops without worrying about heat dissipation.
