At the heart of the Vivobook S 15 beats the powerful Snapdragon X Elite chip from Qualcomm, featuring the custom Oryon CPU and built-in Hexagon AI accelerator. With a staggering 45 TOPS of AI processing power, it can effortlessly handle intensive on-device workloads like video editing and AI content creation.

The real stars of the show are the new Windows AI tools that the Vivobook S 15 integrates. These include Studio Effects for intelligent background blurring and noise removal on video calls, accurate live captions, and the AI Cocreator app that can transform sketches into polished digital artwork using generative AI.

But ASUS has gone a step further by developing its own exclusive AI applications too. The StoryCube app leverages AI to automatically sort, edit and manage photos/videos for easy curation. There’s also an AI-powered webcam that enables intelligent auto screen dimming when you look away and secure lock/unlock based on facial recognition.

Under the hood, the Vivobook S 15 is a powerhouse with up to 32GB LPDDR5X RAM and blazing-fast 1TB PCIe 4.0 SSD storage. The stunning 15.6-inch 3K 120Hz OLED display is a treat for the eyes, offering a 100% DCI-P3 color gamut, HDR600 support and a speedy 0.2ms response time. Harman Kardon-tuned audio with Dolby Atmos provides an immersive sound experience as well.
