Asus ROG Zephyrus Duo 15 Features 2 Screens

The ROG Zephyrus Duo 15 features a Core i9-10980HK processor, with 32GB of DDR4 RAM, 2TB of SSD storage (in RAID), and a GeForce RTX 2080 Super. All this is powered by a 90Wh battery and charges via a USB-C port that supports Thunderbolt 3. It’s available in June for around USD $3,699.99.

There are 2 other models available, the $3,499 version includes a Core i9-10980HK and a GeForce RTX 2080 Super, but has less ram of 16GB and only 1TB of storage (PCIe).

And finally the $2,999 model  includes a Core i7-10875H, 32GB of DDR4 RAM, 2TB of storage (in RAID), and a GeForce RTX 2070 Super onboard graphics.

Taken from Theverge … It’s a big day in the mobile-computing world. Intel has unveiled its new H-series chips, Nvidia has announced its RTX Super GPU lineup for mobile devices, and just about every major laptop manufacturer is introducing new laptops incorporating that hardware. But Asus is releasing something unlike anything else that’s hitting shelves today: the Zephyrus Duo 15.

Asus says that this is the first dual-screen laptop branded specifically for gaming. It’s technically correct, although it discounts past dual-screen laptops — like the company’s own Zenbook Pro Duo and Zenbook Duo — that were fairly competent gaming machines, too.

Here’s how the new laptop works. Like Asus’ past dual-screen laptops, there’s one screen (the main 15.6-inch one) which can be either a 4K 60Hz panel or a 1920 X 1080p 300Hz panel. The former is geared toward content creators (Asus says it covers 100 percent of the Adobe RGB color space); the latter will appeal more to gamers.

Then, there’s a second display built into the upper half of the keyboard deck. This one is a 14.1-inch 60Hz touchscreen with 3840 x 1100 resolution. The screen’s top edge lifts off the deck to prop it up at a 13-degree angle, so both displays should be comfortably in your field of view while you’re using the laptop. (The opening underneath also allows the laptop’s fans to draw air in from above, which will help out with airflow, according to Asus).
