ASUS has unveiled the new ProArt StudioBook 16 OLED and ProArt StudioBook Pro 16 OLED, two machines that have 16:10 displays and 45 W processors. Both are available with 4K OLED displays and AMD Ryzen 5000H or Intel Core/Xeon processors, along with several innovations unique to the ProArt StudioBook 16 series.
Both laptops can be configured with up to an AMD Ryzen 9 5900HX, or an Intel Core i9-11900H for the ProArt StudioBook 16 OLED. On the other hand, ASUS offers an optional Intel Xeon W-11955M for the ProArt StudioBook Pro 16 OLED, which is unavailable on the non-Pro model. Moreover, the non-Pro model can be configured with an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 or GeForce RTX 3070, while the Pro model gets an RTX A2000 or an RTX A5000.
ASUS has also equipped the ProArt StudioBook 16 series with a large trackpad, a number pad, dedicated mouse buttons and full-sized arrow keys. Additionally, all configurations have an ESS Sabre DAC and a Windows Hello-compatible webcam with a privacy shutter.
Furthermore, the new machines have an ASUS Dial, a small wheel resembling an analog stick that brings added functionality to Adobe After Effects, Lightroom Classic, Photoshop and Premiere Pro. Currently, only these four applications suggest the ASUS Dial.
