IFA 2019 kicks off on Friday in Berlin, which means it's time for PC announcements. ASUS today announced a few new laptops from its ProArt lineup, which is aimed at "3D designers, game developers and more".
First up is the ProArt StudioBook One, which ASUS says is its most powerful StudioBook yet, packing up to a ninth-generation Intel Core i9 and Nvidia Quadro RTX 6000 graphics. Interestingly, the CPU, GPU, and thermals are all included in the lid, so the base should remain cool when it's on your lap. When the laptop is open, the lid opens by 4.57 degrees.
Then there's the ProArt StudioBook Pro X, which has an ASUS NanoEdge display for a 92% screen-to-body ratio and a 16:10 aspect ratio. It also has ScreenPad 2.0, a secondary touchscreen to "easily manage tasks and streamline your workflows". It comes with up to an Intel Xeon or hexa-core Core i7, and Quadro RTX 5000 graphics.
The ProArt Station D940MX is a compact desktop with a dual-sided logic board that includes a Core i9, up to 64GB DDR4 2666MHz memory, and either Quadro RTX 4000 or GeForce RTX 2080 Ti graphics. It has dual storage options, and it even includes Thunderbolt 3 support in the front.
ASUS also announced some new ROG gaming laptops that are also designed for creators, including the Strix G, Zephyrus M, and Zephyrus S. They all come with up to an Intel Core i7-9750H, up to 32GB DDR4-2666MHz memory, and more.
