As is often the case with rapidly advancing video technology, the devices on which we view such images fail to keep up. This tech world phenomenon has expectedly followed suit with 4K video – where our cameras and smartphones can shoot in stunning resolution, but our screens don’t have the chops to display it. ASUS, on the other hand, sticks to its track record of breaking boundaries and remains at the pinnacle of innovation by presenting the new Zen AiO Pro. An entertainment powerhouse armed to the teeth with features that push performance and visual immersion, the all-in-one PC marks a new step in giving users a creative edge by relishing the splendour of 4K resolution.
Designing A Masterpiece
Approaching its design with beauty at the core, ASUS ensured that the Zen AiO Pro’s housing reflects the visual marvel found in its display. Forged from a solid block of anodised aluminium and crafted into an elegant unibody shell, its timeless brushed metal finish and signature spun-metal Zen-inspired concentric circles adorn a layer of edge-to-edge glass covering the display for minimalist sophistication. With 6mm diamond-cut chamfers resulting in a slim profile and its anodised body resulting in an elegant shade of Icicle Gold, the Zen AiO Pro shakes off the notion that a PC need not look the part by offering a masterpiece of technology and design.
Never miss another detail with the Zen AiO Pro’s stunning display that brings clarity and colour to life. Boasting a 23.8-inch 4K/UHD display and a resolution of 3840x2160, ASUS’ latest PC extends beyond the limitations of 1080p video and muted colours – allowing creatives to explore their expression with unbridled reach. With a wide colour gamut of 82 per cent NTSC, 85 per cent Adobe RGB and up to 100 per cent sRGB, everyone from graphic designers, filmmakers and the discerning everyday viewer can enjoy a richer viewing experience through finer details and vivid colours.
The Zen AiO Pro’s powerful new features need a powerful processor to make the magic happen, and with the latest Intel® Core™ i7 quad-core processor as its driving force, there’s plenty of power to go around to ensure that your needs aren’t held back. With up to 32GB of DDR4 memory, 4GB DDR5 video memory and lightning fast PCIe® 3.0 x4 M.2 SSD storage to maintain a smooth and responsive user experience, there’s no room for compromise when it comes to watching videos at their highest resolution, playing games at their highest specs, and multi-tasking for demanding projects.
Its artful construction may suggest otherwise, but the Zen AiO Pro was meant to be touched. Offering users an interactive, hands-on experience, its 10-point capacitive multi-touch screen offers streamlined functionality and entertainment to tie up with your other touch-screen devices. It is equipped with an Intel® RealSense 3-D camera* that add precise, futuristic capabilities to the way you interact with your desktop – including facial recognition passwords and motion-controlled games. The Zen AiO Pro also sports six integrated speakers to deliver powerful 16-watt stereo audio that emulates the concert experience, while its NVIDIA® GeForce®GTX™960M graphics card will have you at the top of your game with stunning graphics and stutter-free gameplay. *Only for 4K/UHD model
Staying true to the brand's mission to inspire, ASUS has partnered with JUICE to put creative control into the hands of the unsung heroes behind the lens. Showcasing our island's brimming talent in the filmmaking industry, four local filmmakers will be unified under a common theme and tasked to put their creativity to the test with the Zen AiO Pro. Using the remarkable PC to unleash their imagination and edit their films, each short film will inspire viewers to tap into their own creative vision, while highlighting the power of the all-in-one entertainment hub. See the first video in the series below and stand a chance to win a number of prizes, including the ZenWatch 2 and ZenPad with a total worth of more than $1000.
The Zen AiO Pro with 4K/UHD Display (Z240ICGT-GJ120X) is available for $3,198 at ASUS Stores and authorised retailers from May 16. For more info, visit asus.com/sg.
