ASUS Vivobook Pro 16X OLED – The right tool for creators
As a digital content creator, having the right tools to bring your creative vision to life is essential. The ASUS Vivobook Pro 16X OLED is a powerful and versatile laptop that offers a variety of features that can help take your content creation to the next level.
Digital content creation refers to the process of creating and publishing digital content, such as text, images, videos, audio, and interactive media, for distribution and consumption on digital platforms. This can include a wide range of content, from social media posts and blog articles, to e-books, podcasts, and online courses. Digital content creation often requires the use of specialized software and tools, as well as knowledge of best practices for creating engaging and effective digital content. Some examples of this kind of software are: Adobe Creative Suite, Canva, Blender, GarageBand, Audacity and many more.
The ASUS Vivobook Pro 16X OLED laptop boasts an impressive 16-inch OLED screen, with a resolution of 4K and 16:10 NanoEdge Technology. This makes for an incredibly immersive display experience for content creators and cinema enthusiasts, with colors that pop out of the screen with stunning accuracy and vividness. The laptop also supports HDR, Pantone Validation, and Dolby Vision, making it an excellent tool for editing. The ProArt software allows users to further adjust color calibration to their liking.
The high resolution also ensures that pixels won’t be visible when viewing videos and other clips, adding to the overall experience. The 16:10 aspect ratio also maximizes the workspace and reduces bezels. The 90.3% screen-to-body ratio provides ample space for work and play, while the laptop remains thin and portable at 19.9mm, suitable for use in any scenario.
Under the hood, the laptop is powered by a 14-core Intel Core i9-12900H processor and NVIDIA RTX 3060 GPU, with 16GB of RAM, making it an efficient multitasking machine. It is also ideal for creative professionals who require high-end hardware for post-production and real-time 3D modeling, as well as gaming.
The laptop features ASUS’ IceCool Pro Thermal System, which maintains peak performance and prevents throttling. It includes six heat pipes, four vents, dual fans, and more. The fan speed can also be adjusted through the Creator Hub. The device comes equipped with an HD webcam and software for enhanced video conferencing, reducing noise and grain, and adjusting lighting in real-time.
The ASUS AI Noise-Canceling feature ensures that background noise doesn’t interfere during calls and built-in Harman Kardon speakers with supported Dolby Atmos provides a pleasurable audio experience. The device is also equipped with multiple ports, making it a versatile device for use as a full-fledged workstation at home. It features a USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-A port, one USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-A port, one USB Type-C port, one Thunderbolt 4 USB-C port, an audio combo jack, a microSD Express 7.0 slot, an RJ-45 Ethernet port, and an HDMI 2.1 port which supports 4K 120Hz or 8K 60Hz monitors.
ASUS Dialpad is a godsend
In addition to its standard touchpad functions, the ASUS Vivobook Pro 16X OLED laptop features ASUS DialPad technology, which allows for more advanced and efficient use, particularly with apps such as Adobe Photoshop, through specific controls for brush tools. I managed to create a custom setting for DaVinci Resolve Studio specifically for scrolling through the timeline and assigning in and out points. This is just one of the technology’s many features and more capabilities are expected to be added in the future.
