To develop the new ProArt StudioBook 16, Asus spent much effort into developing the specific requirements of professional content producers. Yes, laptops designed for creators must be equipped with discrete graphics and high-performance CPUs capable of handling video editing, picture retouching, and other tasks.
What are your thoughts? Isn’t it true that laptops should optimize and simplify your workflow?
As a result, Asus included a unique new feature in the ProArt StudioBook 16 called the Asus Dial. This is functional and visually appealing. It’s a tactile rotary control built into the deck that allows users to adjust the more delicate features of some Adobe applications in real-time.
Another notable feature of the StudioBook is the world’s first 16-inch 4K OLED HDR display. With a 16:10 aspect ratio, it has become the world’s first of its kind. The eye-catching products, on the other hand, do not end there.
Depending on your preferences, the Asus Pro Art Studiobook 16 may be customized with either an Intel Core i7 processor or an AMD Ryzen 5000 H-series processor.
The former is outfitted with NVIDIA RTX 3060 graphics, while the latter is outfitted with an NVIDIA RTX 3070 graphics processor. Both devices have a starting price of USD 1,999. The AMD and Intel-powered versions are equipped with twin, ultra-fast PCIe SSDs and up to 64 GB of RAM, depending on the configuration.
Asus claimed that the display has been factory calibrated to meet Pantone-validated, color-accuracy standards, which are not yet available. In addition, the panel has been Calman-verified.
In a statement, the Taiwan-based firm claimed that their display covered 100 percent of the DCI-P3 color gamut and was thus considered a “cinema-grade” screen.
An ultra-vibrant, color-accurate show is an excellent feature for picture and video editors, and we can’t wait to put the panel through its paces to see if ASUS promises are correct.
The Pro Art StudioBook 16 provides a wide array of I/O choices. They include two USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-A ports, an SD Express 7.0 card reader. Also, an Ethernet RJ45 connector, a headphone line, a security lock slot, and HDMI 2.1, which can handle 8K at 120Hz or 10K at 60Hz output.
The AMD model features two USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C ports, compared to the single USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C port of the competitor’s offering. There are two Type-C ports in the Intel setup, but one of them is Thunderbolt 4.
As was previously stated, the ASUS Dial is a novel, rotating mechanism that allows you to manipulate particular settings inside Adobe creative applications with quick and accurate precision.
One way to make more minor changes is by using Asus Dial, which enables you to adjust saturation levels to the slightest degree possible on Photoshop. The Dial is handy. Other dial features you may include are: –
- Colour correction and tone
- Time correction
- Brush modification for smoothing
The Pro Art Studiobook 16’s touchpad is unlike your typical touchpad. You may use either your hands or a pen to work with it. The deck feels like a digital sketching board. It should also be noted that the touchpad has three buttons (as opposed to two).
The center button, designed for 3D artists, is an excellent addition. It allows users to easily access unique features like panning, rotating, and orbiting, allowing them to see their works from various viewpoints.
The Asus Pro Art StudioBook Pro 16 is worth looking into if you’re an architect or engineer who utilizes CAD modeling applications or a data scientist who uses AI and Big Data programs.
