To conclude, the laptops come loaded with pretty interesting specifications. The ZenBook Pro 15 gives a stiff competition to MacBook Pro 15, though it features the similarly-inspired Touch Bar in select MacBook Pro models. The ZenBook S and ZenBook 13 are the ones that will face a stiff competition from the brands like Lenovo, HP, Acer and Dell.

Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.
