Asus announces ZenBook Pro 15 with Core i9 CPU

15.6-inch 4K screen with Nvidia GTX 1050 GPU

Asus has rather silently announced a new version of its ZenBook Pro 15 notebook, the 15.6-inch screen UX550GD, which comes with a choice of Intel's Core i9-8950HK CPU and Nvidia GTX 1050 GPU.

The Asus ZenBook Pro 15 UX550GD is not a single SKU so there will be plenty of different combinations of hardware, including a wide choice of CPUs with the Core i5-8300H (hexa-core 2.3GHz), Core i7-8750H (hexa-core 2.2GHz) or the fabled Core i9-8950HK (hexa-core 2.9GHz) CPU and an Nvidia GTX 1050 GPU with 4GB of GDDR5 memory as a standard choice.

There will also be a choice between either a 15.6-inch FHD 1920x1080 screen with an optional touchscreen or a 15.6-inch 4K/UHD 3840x2160 touchscreen, both coming with a 7.3mm bezel for 83 percent screen-to-body ratio.

The rest of the specification includes 8GB or 16GB of DDR4-2400 memory, 512GB or 1TB of PCIe SSD storage or 256GB or 512GB of SATA3 SSD storage, two USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-C and two USB 3.1 Type-A ports, HDMI output, full size backlit keyboard, glass-covered touchpad with optional integrated fingerprint sensor supporting Windows Hello, Harman-Kardon certified Asus SonicMaster stereo audio with array microphone, VGA webcam, dual-band 802.11ac WiFi with Bluetooth 5.0, while Ethernet connectivity is enabled with optional USB to LAN port dongle.

Asus makes some good products. I always used Samsung Tablets and compared those to the Asus the Asus won hands down.
