ASUS Zenbook Pro 14 OLED (UX6404) #Intel – Feature Review | 2023

A 14.5″ 120Hz OLED display, RTX™ 4070 at 80W, and 13th Gen Core™ i9 and all of this at only 1.6 kilos! Our brand new Zenbook Pro 14 OLED packs an insane amount of performance in a slim and light all metal chassis. And it starts at around 1500 USD! 13” and 14” are the goldilocks form factor for laptops basically, which is why we have several 14” Zenbooks in 2023. With 14”, you get a full size keyboard and a big enough display in a really compact and light weight chassis. anything smaller and you tend to have a

cramped keyboard and display and anything larger tends to be quite a bit bulkier and heavier and less portable Thanks to Intel’s and NVIDIA’s latest chips, 14″ laptops can now compete with what was only possible in 15″ and 16″ models in 2022! So you can get the same performance at several hundred grams less of a laptop. But before I go into more detail about this brand new Zenbook Pro 14, give me literally a minute and I’ll show you all the other awesome 14″ Zenbooks that we have. Depending on what you’re looking for, one of these may

be even more interesting for you. We’ve got the Zenbook 14, which is our lightest and most affordable 14″ Zenbook and even this one comes with an

OLED display. Then there’s the Zenbook 14 Flip that weighs just a tad more, but it can be flipped around into a Windows tablet. Then there’s the Zenbook 14X that weighs only 1.5 kilos, but comes with a super powerful H-Series Core™ i9. And at the top, our Zenbook Pro 14 Duo, our 14” creator-on-the-go powerhouse with a second display! And this is where our Zenbook Pro 14 comes in! It squeezes in

right here between the Pro Duo, and the 14X. So far we had the Pro Duo, which is crazy powerful and has that huge Screenpad Plus touchscreen and we had the Zenbook 14X with a super powerful CPU but no dedicated graphics and we have nothing in between. For anyone who wants a 14” portable creator workstation, but maybe doesn’t need a second screen and wants a keyboard and a standard position with a nice and big palm rest. The Zenbook Pro 14 gets you pretty much the same CPU and GPU performance at a lower weight and at a

lower price point. And all 3 of these, the Pro Duo, Pro and 14X share the exact same premium display. our brand new 14.5” 120Hz 2.8K OLED display! Colors are incredibly vibrant and pop. It’s a 16:10 which means you get a taller display with more screen space and slim bezels all around. For a premium 90% screen to body ratio at 2.8 K resolution, you won’t be able to spot any pixel unless you press your face against the display. The 120Hz refresh rate makes everything look buttery, smooth, especially scrolling. This also makes the screen easier on the

eyes and in combination with the low blue light and flicker free certification. This display is like giving your eyes a spa treatment compared to the harsh, flickering lights some other displays emit. It supports touch and it works with our ASUS pen 2.0 stylus. This lightweight 1.6 kilo full metal chassis comes dyed in tech black combined with our new and more modern A monogram logo and yes the A stands for ASUS. We flew a huge number of 810H US military tests at the Zenbook Pro 14 and all it did was chuckle and ask for more. On

the inside. you’ll find up to an Intel® Core™ i9 13th gen with 14 CPU cores that we are boosting to an incredible 70W for video editing or other tasks that only load the CPU resulting in impressive performance you would never expect from such a compact and lightweight laptop. And graphics wise, you can get up to an in video NVIDIA® Geforce RTX™ 4070 laptop GPU that we able to boost up to 80 watts, something you could only find in much larger 15 and 16″ laptops so far. And it has a MUX Switch! For gaming you get

DLSS3 which can more than double your performance. And for video editing and other creative apps NVIDIA Studio drivers gives you a healthy performance boost. How are we able to get this much performance out of this compact laptop? It’s thanks to our ASUS IceCool Pro thermal solution with 5 heat pipes 4 vents and 2 high performance fans. There is a high speed M.2 SSD slot that comes configured with up to 2TB straight out of the box. But it is end user replaceable and upgradeable and even the memory can be upgraded. There are 16GB DDR5 4800MHz onboard

and thanks to the SODIMM slot you can expand that to 32 GB or even 48 GB. The battery is noteworthy too, at 76Wh It’s crazy big for a 14”. There are 15 and 16″ laptops with smaller batteries and those have to power a much larger and power hungry displays. So battery life is definitely not going to be weak spot for the Zenbook Pro 14. Since last year already, all our Zenbooks come with our ErgoSense keyboard. That means they feature the same key spacing as standard full sized desktop keyboards and a standard keyboard layout. This makes

it easy to get used to the keyboards within an hour. Max for me at least. Instead of having to memorize completely different layout and gaps between the keys. Our ErgoSense touchpad comes with a PVD hydrophobic coating, which helps to prevent smudges and fingerprints and at the same time makes it super smooth. It’s like your fingers are elegantly ice skating and are effortlessly pulling off pirouettes. The Zenbook Pro 14 features our latest version of the ASUS DialPad. It’s built into the main touchpad so it doesn’t add extra thickness or weight, but we managed to have the

circle recessed into the touchpad so your finger stays in the groove and you can use the dial without looking where your fingers are. They’ll always stay on the dial circle. You’ll get all the I/O ports you’ll need A USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-A, a USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C, a Thunderbolt Type-C port, and both of these Type-C ports come with a display port video output, and both can charge the laptop. Theres a full size SD card reader, that is UHS-II, a full-sized HDMI port, and it is a real HDMI 2.1 port so it can do

4K 120Hz and 8K 60Hz. And would you look at that, A 3.5mm audio jack! That’s right. Well, we love wireless audio as much as anyone. We don’t force you to use it. So whenever you want or need wired Audio. We got you covered. Audio wise we have a triple mic array, a smart amp powered and Harman Kardon tweaked speakers system, and Dolby Atmos® for an immersive and precise audio experience with both the built in speakers or a headset. The Zenbook Pro 14 also comes with our upgraded Zenbook webcam module, our AiSense Main FHD camera, an

IR camera camera for instant log in and 3D noise reduction and image sharpening and several camera effects to track you or blur your background. And we have AI noise canceling for background noise too. All right. And here we have everything at a glance. As you can see, the Zenbook Pro 14 OLED comes packed with an incredible amount of performance and features. It’s really fascinating to see how much performance you can now get out of our 14” laptop, which just a few months ago would have been impressive in a notably larger and heavier 15” laptop. And

that’s it for this video. I hope you enjoyed this overview for our Zenbook Pro 14 and you now know what makes this brand-new addition to our Zenbook family so compelling. You get all the CPU and GPU performance top of the line 120Hz OLED display and pro features of the Zenbook Pro 14 Duo in the lighter and more affordable package.
