Three new Asus ultrabook models come equipped with Nvidia's GTX 1050 GPU. Prices range from US$799 for the Intel's i5-7300HQ CPU version up to US$999 for the i7-7700HQ version.

Asus has refreshed their VivoBook Pro 15 ultrabook family with three new models – the M589VD, the N580 and the X580. The new models are only 0.8”-thick and weigh 5.1 lbs thanks to Asus’ advanced aluminum unibody chassis. CPU options include the mid-range Core i5-7300HQ, or the high-end i7-7700HQ. All the new models are powered by the latest Nvidia GTX 1050 GPU with 4GB GDDR5 VRAM.

The ultrabooks are equipped with either 8 or 16 GB of DDR4, and storage is provided by an M.2 256 GB SSD. All the latest VivoBook Pro 15 models integrate the 15.6-inch 1080p display that reproduces 100% of the sRGB color standard and 72% of the NTSC, while offering wide 178 degrees viewing angles. Specific to these models is the Harman/Kardon dual 8cc speakers system with Smart Amplifier technology. Other features include a white backlit keyboard, a fingerprint sensor, an intelligent dual fans cooling system, and the Aus proprietary fast-charge technology that can charge the battery to 60% in only 49 minutes. On the connectivity side, the ultrabooks include one USB 3.1 Type-C and HDMI 1.4 connectors.

Prices range from US$799 for the i5-7300HQ model up to US$999 for the i7-7700HQ version and are available now at retailers across the world.

I stepped into the wonderous IT&C world when I was around 7. I was instantly fascinated by computerized graphics, be them from games or 3D applications like 3D Max. I like to keep myself up to date with all the new technologies that get released at an ever increasing rate these days. I'm also an avid SciFi reader, an astrophysics aficionado and, as of late, a crypto geek.
