Compared to traditional LCD screens, OLED offers deeper blacks levels, vastly better contrast, and more responsiveness. OLED screens are widely touted as being much more sexy than LCDs and have been appearing on notebooks for years as a premium feature.
Now Asus is bringing it to new mid-range notebooks like the VivoBook Pro 14X and 16X. It's also touting the first 16-inch 4K OLED HDR screens on notebooks including the ProArt Studiobook Pro, ProArt Studiobook and the Vivobook Pro.
The StudioBook Pro 16 OLED (starting at $2,500) will be powered by H-series Ryzen 5000 processors, 3rd-gen Intel Xeon chips and Nvidia's professional-grade RTX A2000 and A5000 GPUs. There's also the Studiobook 16 OLED ($2,000), which has the same Ryzen chips, Intel Core i7 CPUs and either RTX 3070 or 3060 graphics.
Both notebooks will have 4K OLED HDR screens that reach up to 550 nits to scratch and cover 100 percent of DCI-P3 colour. They'll also have the Asus Dial, a new rotary accessory located at the top of their trackpads, offering similar functionality to Microsoft's Surface Dial.
