In a fast-paced environment, being able to do more efficiently and effectively in the same amount of time is key. And as one of if not the most-awaited holiday in 2020 approaches, wouldn’t it be a good idea to gift someone with a device that can help them become more productive, and yet, is ready to give them immersive entertainment?

The ASUS ROG Zephyrus Duo 15 is a great example of such a device. Properly-specced for gaming, productivity, and entertainment, this all-in-one powerhouse is compact enough to be taken anywhere you need to have your battles.

A Look the Blends-in Anywhere

ROG Zephyrus Duo 15 1080p (25)In the past, most gaming laptops used to look like they’re from 10 years in the future and just wouldn’t stop screaming “I’m powerful!”

The Zephyrus Duo 15’s look is inspired by ASUS’ own lineup of productivity notebooks and is designed to blend in wherever your battles take you, whether that means finishing up a deadline in the office, meeting up with friends in a cafe, or just chilling out or having your own gaming night at home, streaming.

Packed in a magnesium-aluminide chassis, at 20.9mm thin and with a weight of just 2.4kg, it’s a device that you can easily move around when needed.

An Immersive Display for Both Creators and Gamers

For gamers, a 1080p display with a 300Hz refresh rate. Its 4ms response time also minimizes ghosting for precision while NVIDIA G-Sync eliminates screen tearing for silky smooth visuals.

Each IPS-level panel is factory calibrated to guarantee that every color seen meets Pantone Color Validation requirements. This superior color accuracy lets artists, designers, as well as content creators, become confident in doing serious professional work while also enjoying rich visuals.

Next-level multitasking

Zephyrus Duo 15 is equipped with a secondary touch-enabled display called ScreenPad Plus which tilts at a 13-degree angle for comfortable viewing.

Gamers, on the other hand, can also take advantage of the second screen for supported titles to enhance gameplay.

For example, in the upcoming game Dying Light 2, you’ll be able to use the second display for your co-op chats, inventory, and mission logs. It’ll also work for tools designed to work well on multiple screens like Overwolf Apps, allow you to see build recommendations plus real-time stats on popular titles such as League of Legends.

Use ScreenPad Plus for ROG apps like GPUTweak II and Armoury Crate to instantly adjust graphics settings and monitor performance on the fly.

In a more typical scenario, the extra screen can also be used for moving browsers, videos, and chats so you stay updated even while you work and play.

It allows for drag and drop operation, and brings an array of tools to optimize the user experience. You can even create task groups that show up to 5 select apps, so you don’t have to open each app one-by-one all over again.

Specced to Perform

Then there’s 32GB of DDR4 3200MHz SDRAM. For storage, it’s got two 1TB NVMe PCIe 3.0×4 SSDs.

Zephyrus Duo 15 uses a liquid metal thermal compound that reduces CPU temperatures and allows for up to 10% improved performance versus standard thermal paste. Its cooling system also utilizes 5 heat pipes to pull heat away from the CPU and GPU, as well as the circuitry that’s supplying them with power. Each heatsink in the flank is also lined with ultra-thin copper fins that go as slim as 0.1mm for higher density and reduced air resistance.

Anti-dust tunnels catch and channel particles outside the chassis to prevent them from accumulating in the fins to ensure consistent cooling, as well as to improve stability and reliability.
