Asus hold its first Intel performance day after two years break.

Asus held its first Intel performance day after a two-year hiatus. The company took a break in 2020 following the Covid-19 outbreak in the world.

“This is an event that is organized in collaboration with Intel who is our partner for Africa to develop the business in this part of the world,” ASUS Africa Head of PC Business Simplice Zaongo said.

Asus has improved the performance of its Zenbook and Vivobook thin-and-light laptops, following the latest 12th Generation Intel H-Series CPUs, with their thermal design power specifications of up to 45 watts.

The company says the latest laptops offer up to 2.5X performance improvements over previous generation models.

“Laptop users can expect enhanced productivity, creativity, gaming, and entertainment, in laptops that are no larger than their predecessors.”

"The innovations that ASUS engineers have implemented in our latest laptops, working together with our partners from Intel, have enabled us to deliver these incredible products for 2022. 

"Their work on cooling technologies and chassis craftsmanship is a very important but challenging task," said Jeff Lo, ASUS East EMEA General Manager.

Adding; "Sometimes the improvements are invisible to customers, but they help us deliver amazing performance while keeping our laptops compact and light, which is exactly what customers are expecting from their next laptop," 

The newly released 2022 ASUS consumer laptop portfolio uses innovative solutions including ultra-efficient and quiet cooling systems such as ASUS IceCool, AAS Ultra, and 3D vapor chambers; AI-enhanced software; and precision craftsmanship.

“The preference of users for thin and light laptops is increasing year by year, and solving the problem of how to improve performance levels without increasing size is a big engineering challenge.”

The superb power efficiency of the 12th Gen Intel Core processors means that users can enjoy all these performance benefits while still enjoying an extended battery life that's comparable to existing models.

Its processors deliver more performance with better power savings than ever before, due to their hybrid design with its mix of high-performance cores and power-efficient cores.

“These cores share computing tasks intelligently to improve gaming, streaming, and multitasking performance, and their power efficiency makes them ideal for delivering high performance in the thin-and-light form factor that users increasingly prefer.”

To achieve maximum CPU performance in a thin-and-light laptop, it's vital that the CPU is kept cool, and this is where slim designs can fail to deliver.

The latest ASUS Zenbook and Vivobook laptops feature upgraded cooling technology, including new ASUS IceBlade fan designs, dual heat pipes, improved multi-vent airflow control, and — in the Zenbook Pro 16X OLED and Zenbook Duo 14X OLED models — a 3D vapor chamber and the innovative Active Aerodynamic System Ultra (AAS Ultra) mechanism. 

The 3D vapor chamber is an ASUS innovation that curves the vapor chamber to achieve a better fit with the motherboard components than a standard flat vapor chamber.

AAS Ultra raises the rear of either the keyboard or the secondary touchscreen to increase airflow out of the chassis by up to 30%.

“Modern laptops tend to be very powerful. This is the case for all segments as we can do more with our laptops compared to about a decade ago.”
