Asus has made the VivoBook Pro 14, Pro 14X, 15, and Pro 16X official in the European market. The new laptops have options on OLED screens and either Intel Tiger Lake or Ryzen 5000 processors. This, of course, also means Thunderbolt 4 in some SKUs, in a series offering up to RTX 3050 Ti cards in terms of graphics.

Asus has announced that the latest round of VivoBooks will, like their ZenBook or StudioBook cousins, have OLED-equipped models. Now, these new laptops have also been unleashed on the European market. Their new panel types are FHD in the 15-inch model, although the Pro 14, 14X and 16X go from 2.5K to 4K, depending on the configuration chosen.

The OEM has made them available with choices of 11th-gen Intel H35 or AMD Zen 3 platforms, topping out at the Core i7-11370H or Ryzen 9 5900HX in the highest-end options. The 14-inch Tiger Lake-powered SKUs may be paired with GeForce GTX 1650 graphics, although its VivoBook 15 counterpart can upgrade (on paper, at least) to the RTX 3050

Then again, top-end SKUs might integrate the 3050 Ti instead. They may be joined by up to 32GB DDR4-3200 RAM and up to 1TB SSDs in the new VivoBooks. Interestingly, Asus has indicated that a customer might even customize an order for one with the OEM's new Dial-enabled trackpad.

This VivoBook OLED range is projected to become available in the final quarter of 2021. Asus estimates they will start at €799 (~US$949) for the Pro 14 range, whereas the 15 will be €949 (~$1,128) at least. Finally, the VivoBook Pro 16X will go for €1,299 (~$1544) in its cheapest form.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
