14- and 15.6-inch 4K screens, GeForce RTX 30 Mobile graphics, and no Intel processors. ROG Zephyrus Duo 15 2nd Gen Revealed
Asus has unveiled the next-gen ROG Zephyrus Duo 15 dual-screen laptop. As they say in the company itself, “we took last year’s Zephyrus Duo 15 and completely reformatted it.” Indeed: the design has changed, the screens have improved and … Intel processors have disappeared.
If last year’s model used an Intel Comet Lake-H CPU, now – AMD Ryzen 5000H on the Zen 3 architecture. You can choose from a regular Ryzen 7 5800H and an overclocked Ryzen 9 5900HX with a liquid cooling system.
Video cards – GeForce RTX 30 Mobile announced only yesterday in the face of RTX 3070 with 8 GB of memory or RTX 3080 with 16 GB of GDDR6. As for the main screen, users can now order a laptop with a 4K IPS panel with a frame rate of 120 Hz. The maximum for its predecessor is the same 4K matrix, but with half the frame rate. An additional touchscreen display with a diagonal of 14.1 inches in the top configuration has a resolution of 3840 x 1100 pixels, in the base its resolution is 1920 x 550 pixels. In both cases, IPS matrices with a frame rate of 60 Hz are used.
16 GB of DDR4-3200 MHz RAM is soldered on the motherboard, but due to the presence of 1 SODIMM slot, the amount of RAM can be increased to 32 GB. For installing SSD, there are two M.2 slots with support for drives of size 2280 and RAID 0. The list of interface connectors includes USB 3.1 Gen2 Type C (Power Delivery and DisplayPort 1.4), two USB 3.1 Gen2 Type A and one USB 3.1 Gen1 Type A, one HDMI 2.1, standard headphone and microphone jack, and RJ-45 network port.
