Last February 8, 2023, we were privileged to have an invitation from ASUS for an exclusive event to see some of their new laptops that were also showcased at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2023. They brought here to the Philippines the laptops that will for sure be launched in our country on the coming months. The laptops that were showcased uses the latest Intel “Raptor Lake” which is their 13th Gen Core processor and the Nvidia GeForce RTX 4000 series of GPU.
Aside from the latest processors and graphic cards in their laptops, they are also consistently upgrading the technology into their laptops. For example, some of their laptops now feature OLED displays with a 120Hz refresh rate which is an improvement from their last year’s 90Hz. They have also made breakthroughs in hygiene technology, such as the “ASUS Antimicrobial Guard Plus” that has the ability to inhibit 99% of viruses and bacteria. Along with this, it is ISO 21702 certified.
Their laptops have gone through the strictest US military-grade durability testing. This includes 26 MIL-STD 810H test procedures for consumer and gaming laptops (Studiobook, Zenbook, Vivobook, Zephyrus, STRIX, TUF), and 28 MIL-STD 810H test procedures for commercial laptops (Expertbook, Expertcenter).
