The Asus Zenbook 14X is the new thin and light notebook from Asus to hit the market and follows the 13-inch version, by also bringing a high-quality OLED screen.
Asus is betting on renewing its notebook line with OLED technology and the Asus Zenbook 14X promises to continue that trend, bringing with it a good build and performance to match.
Asus Zenbook 14X: OLED display and 11th generation Intel processors
The Asus Zenbook 14X is the highest quality version in Asus’ “thin and light” alignment. Its highlight goes clearly to the 14-inch OLED screens (16:10 format), which come in two versions: a 4K HDR (Ultra HD) version or a 2.8K (Quad HD) version with a 90Hz refresh rate. Both options are superior to the Zenbook 13’s Full HD OLED screen, both in its resolution and in overall quality.
The OLED screens of the Asus Zenbook 14X will be able to cover the DCI-P3 color gamut by 100%, will have a response of 0.2 ms and, according to Asus, the blue light emission harmful to vision will be reduced by 70% compared to LCD panels.
In terms of performance, the Asus Zenbook 14X will have good arguments on the 11th generation Intel processors (Core i5 and i7), which can be accompanied by an Nvidia MX450 graphics and configured with up to 16GB of DDR4 3200MHz RAM and 1TB of SSD storage. The input selection is relatively generous, as the new notebook comes with Thunderbolt 4.0 input, USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-A, HDMI 2.0 and a microSD card reader.
Naturally, the Asus Zenbook 14X will be priced higher than the 13-inch version, given the qualitative leap between versions. Thus, the base price announced for the North American market is $1,399.99 (1,179.36€ in direct conversion at the date of publication of the article).
Asus also announced the arrival of the Zenbook 14 Flip OLED, the version with touchscreen and convertible to tablet mode. It will have the same features as the Zenbook 14X, except that its screen can be used with a finger or stylus.
