    Asus Zenbook NX500 coming winter with 4K UHD screen and Intel Core i7 processor


    [​IMG]
    Asus has unveiled a whole stack of devices during its Computex 2014 press conference, including new Android tablets and the Transformer Book V, but it is perhaps the Zenbook NX500 that is attracting the most attention. The 15.6-inch laptop has a 4K UHD 3M QDEF touchscreen display.

    Utilising Nvidia GeForce GTX 850M graphics, the screen is the first in the world to use 3M's quantum dots technology. Asus claims that not only does this increase resolution, but it enables an ultra-wide colour gamut of 100 per cent NTSC, 108 per cent Adobe RGB and 146 per cent sRGB.

    The display also has a wide 178-degree viewing angle and sports Asus' TruVivid direct-bonding technology to cut down on reflections.

    Like previous Zenbooks, the NX500 has a spun-metal finish on the lid, made from a single block of aluminium. The keyboard's backlighting is triggered by an ambient sensor, so you won't have to grope around in the dark to find the function key to turn it on.

    Inside, Asus has fitted an Intel Core i7 quad-core processor, while the Nvidia graphics chip also uses 2GB of GDDR5 video memory. Consumers can choose to have a couple of different SSD configurations for storage - up to 512GB. And three USB 3.0 ports are supplied, along with802.11ac Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0 for wireless connectivity.

    The audio system on board incorporates Bang & Olufsen ICEpower technology, and MAXXAudio Master by Waves processing is present.

    The Asus Zenbook NX500 will be available from Q4 in the UK. Price is yet to be revealed.

    :whoo:

    Lets put friends up on tech. :gladbron: Yeah :dj2:

    Unknown friend. There will be multiple skews supposedly. Im probably going to get the best one so im prepared to spend 2 grand i believe. My current laptop sounds like a jetplane getting ready to take off and sadly, they've buried the fan components deep into the internals, and frankly, im to lazy to take it apart and to cheap to send it to the mechanic so im just going to pay the piper and buy a new one. Doesnt help that my son has destroyed 2 of the keys on my laptop with his spit making them very sometimey.

    To answer your question though i'll put this monster between 1600 and 2100 but who knows, friend. :manny:

    thanks friend; $2000 is a tad pricey :whew:

    You know why this is the dumbest possible thing anyone could buy this year
    For starters, why would you need a 4K screen that small for? Wouldn't you want a big screen 4KTV
    Wouldn't that TV end up being cheaper than this tablet?
    Basically the only things you could use it for is Netflix 4K and gaming in 4K
    Tablets are more for surfing, but at least you have Netflix and gaming
    Wait, Netflix doesn't have 4K yet. Well, at least you have gaming!!!
    Angry Birds 4K FTW :patrice:

    The 4k is for desktop use. For gaming you would probably scale down your resolution to 1080p, friend. I work with photos so this is good for friends, friend.

    I dont watch television unless there is a video game on it for the most part so buying a 4k tv isnt a good idea for me. My laptop is my primary entertainment center.

    At 15 in 4k is nothing but a marketing term.

    Getting back to the topic, my next big purchase will likely be the iPhone6 at the end of this summer

    Stop it breh, your friends would talk greasy about you behind your back if you did that
    They would come over, probably didn't even wanna come over but you said you had weed
    Then while they chillin, you pull out your 4K laptop and go "Friends, look at these selfies of me in 4K"
    They'll eventually leave and be like "why this dude think I give a shyt about his 4K screen :heh:"
    Meanwhile, since you already seen the pics. All you got left is Angry Birds Seasons 4K
    They didn't even do the star wars joints in 4K yet friend :damn:
    Since you say your laptop is your primary entertainment center, get that 4KTV on the low
    Then hook up your laptop or desktop or whatever to that 4KTV and :eat:

    Friends don't let friends buy Asus :handshake:
