TOP-Notch Performance

Powered by Windows 11, the Asus Vivobook S 15 combines a sleek, modern aesthetic with unmatched performance. The Snapdragon X Elite Processor, a dedicated AI chip, delivers peak performance in multi core tasks, providing a more productive laptop experience. 

ST Liew, Vice President of Qualcomm CDMA Technologies Asia-Pacific Pte. Ltd. and President of Qualcomm Taiwan & SEA, Australia, New Zealand, echoed the sentiment: “The PC is reborn with Snapdragon X Elite, and we are excited to collaborate with ASUS to put incredible innovation like the ASUS Vivobook S 15 in the hands of users, making a formidable range of AI devices that meet the needs of consumers now and in the future.”

The Qualcomm Hexagon NPU delivers ultimate productivity with 45 TOPS AI processing speeds. This ensures peak AI performance that is able to run directly on-the-device, rather than through the Cloud. This calibre of performance allows more responsive and smooth multitasking, guaranteeing a seamless experience with all AI tools and tasks without compromising battery life.  

Dan Johnson, Windows & Microsoft 365 Category Lead for Microsoft ANZ, highlights the benefits of Edge AI: “We believe the richest AI experiences will only be possible when the cloud and device work together in concert. Now with the introduction of the Copilot+ PCs, I’m excited that together with our partners, such as ASUS, we can set the frame for the next decade of Windows innovation.”

In line with Microsoft’s qualifications for a Copilot+ PCthe Vivobook S 15 also has a CoPilot key on the keyboard to ensure this AI tool is easy and quick to access, helping to make Content Creation, Productivity and Learning easier than ever.

Asus Ai Software

To ensure Australians feel empowered by AI in all aspects of their daily lives, ASUS is launching a range of exclusive software, reflecting the company’s belief in how AI can revolutionise Australians’ daily lives:

  • Asus StoryCube: An AI-powered digital asset-management tool, which can automatically organise photos and videos.

  • Asus AI Noise Cancellation:  This leverages a deep-learning database to reduce background noise in meetings and calls, for clear audio.

  • Asus Adaptive Dimming: A technology that recognises when a user looks away and dims the screen, which helps to maintain power consumption. 

  • Asus Adaptive Lock: With this feature, the laptop will be automatically locked when the user moves away and unlocked when they return, helping to ensure greater security.

Audio-visual

Asus Lumina OLED displays boast superior visual capabilities to ensure Australians can experience the benefits of AI better. With Lumina OLED, users can enjoy:

  • More Accuracy: Due to being Pantone Validated and factory-calibrated to Delta E < 1consumers can experience a wider array of vivid, true-to-life colours. With an ultra-wide 89% screen-to-body ratio, cinema-grade 100% DCI-P3 colour gamut, and VESA DisplayHDR True Black 600 certification. This can benefit individuals using AI to create visual and video content to drive more precision and accuracy on their content. 

  • More Adaptive: Asus Lumina OLED provides customisable visuals, power-saving solutions and sharpened playback. Asus Tru2Life technology is a video enhancement feature that analyses each pixel of the video being displayed, adjusting brightness, contrast and sharpness to ensure the best, most vibrant viewing experience for consumers.

  • More Reliable: With people spending hours working, playing and creating in front of laptops, Asus has ensured its OLED line-up has OLED Care and TÜV Rheinland 70% less blue-light certification, which means the devices can help to reduce strain on eyes caused by prolonged exposure to blue light

In addition to the device’s visual capabilities, its audio system is Harman Kardon-certified with immersive, multi-dimensional Dolby Atmos sound, elevating the overall audiovisual experience when working or playing.
