ASUS ROG Zephyrus Duo 15 SE gaming laptop now available in the UAE

The special edition of ROG dual-screen gaming laptop to retail for Dhs17,999

ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) today announced the Zephyrus Duo 15 SE, a special edition of its dual-screen gaming laptop, is now available in the UAE.

The Zephyrus Duo 15 SE combines an upgraded 15.6-inch main display with the ROG ScreenPad Plus, which provides touchscreen controls on a 14.1-inch secondary display.

The ROG Zephyrus Duo 15 SE ScreenPad Plus secondary display rises at a 13° angle for easy viewing and touchscreen interaction. Gamers can play on the main screen while keeping chats and broadcast controls accessible below on the 14.1” screen. Content creators can work on the primary display without clutter, keeping their toolbars, timelines, and reference materials on the second screen. The touchscreen works with the ASUS Pen active stylus, allowing users to handwrite and sketch.

The Zephyrus Duo 15 SE is powered by up to a GeForce RTX 3080 laptop GPU. Thanks to advanced cooling and ROG Boost, the chip can run up to 1645 MHz at 115W with ROG Boost, with another 15W available from Dynamic Boost.

This GPU is based on a new NVIDIA Ampere architecture with updated CUDA cores for programmable shading, enhanced RT cores for real-time ray tracing, and upgraded Tensor cores for accelerating AI. This combination enhances gaming performance and graphics in addition to speeding up other workloads like image processing, 3D modelling, and deep learning. It’s also backed by up to 16GB of GDDR6 VRAM reserved exclusively for the GPU.

An AMD Ryzen 9 5900HX Mobile Processor with 8 cores and 16 threads is built on 7nm fabrication technology, which delivers not only a smooth gaming experience, but is also ideal for 3D rendering, content creation, and multitasking with up to 32GB of combined onboard and SO-DIMM memory.

All models incorporate quad speakers with Dolby Atmos to enhance audio output, noise-cancelling, a MicroSD slot that simplifies accessing media, and fast-charging support. They also come with an all-metal body with a new Dot Insight aesthetic.

The ROG Zephyrus Duo 15 SE ScreenPad Plus secondary display rises at a 13° angle for easy viewing and touchscreen interaction.

The main display of the Zephyrus Duo 15 SE is an Ultra HD 4K panel that refreshes at 120 Hz and has an esports-grade 3ms grey-to-grey response time. Adaptive-Sync technology is implemented to match the refresh rate of the panel with the frame rate of the GPU. Closely coordinating these components enhances gaming immersion by eliminating visual tearing, minimising perceptible stuttering, and reducing input lag. The IPS-level displays are also calibrated at the factory to comply with stringent Pantone validation requirements.

The ROG Zephyrus comes with an Active Aerodynamic System (AAS) which improves airflow by exposing a 7–10mm intake across the bottom of the laptop when the user lifts the lid, allowing more power to be fed to the processors without an increase in noise levels. To add further cooling headroom, the CPU is covered with Thermal Grizzly’s liquid metal compound, which reduces processor temperatures by as much as 10°C compared to the standard thermal paste. The cooling module’s five heat pipes draw thermal energy away from the CPU, GPU, VRAM, and VRM. They distribute it across four heatsinks filled with ultra-thin fins that maximise the area for thermal dissipation while decreasing resistance to airflow.

Cooling requirements change based on the task, so ROG offers multiple modes tuned for different situations. Silent mode reduces speed slightly to keep acoustics low, which is ideal for everyday tasks. Performance mode provides the horsepower required to push high frame rates in games without excessive noise. Turbo mode overclocks the CPU by 200 MHz to enable even higher performance with a louder fan profile. Users can switch between operating modes manually with a quick keyboard shortcut or automatically with Scenario Profiles.

The Zephyrus Duo 15 SE comes with various connectivity options. The USB 3.2 Gen 2 port supports DisplayPort 1.4 for desktop monitors, and an HDMI 2.0b output can drive a 4K monitor or TV at 60 Hz. Three Type-A USB ports accommodate additional peripherals, including a mouse, gamepad, and VR gear. ROG has also added an ultra-fast microSD 4.0 reader capable of speeds up to 312MB/s.

ROG users can choose between Wi-Fi 6 high-speed wireless connectivity with peak interface bandwidth of up to 2.4Gbps or choose the Gigabit Ethernet connection.

The ASUS ROG Zephyrus Duo 15 SE will be available from April 22 2021 in UAE from Virgin Megastore, Jumbo, Sharaf DG, and Computronic for Dhs17,999. The 300hz FHD display edition will be available on 6th May for the same price.
