ASUS ZenBook Pro Duo 15 OLED (UX582) Quick Review
Now this is the new variant from the zenbook pro duo, which was released back in 2019., while the ux582 may look similar to the original one. At first glance, this laptop definitely has quite a number of upgrades. My name is ally, and today we are going to be reviewing the new asus zenbook pro duo: 15 oled Music. As with most aces notebooks we’ve, recently reviewed, the oled looks similar to most zenbook laptops when reviewed from the back, given that the pro duo also has the signature, concentric circle, design and brushed metal finish, what separates it? A bit from other zen books is its size. The oled is noticeably bigger than most laptops. That asus has recently released once you view it from the front, though, you are going to be greeted by the beautiful screen pad 2.0. It is a large secondary touch display on the bottom, while we already like the previous pro duo screen pad. The new pro duo has a better designed one as it lifts up when the laptop is opened. This means you can clearly see and use the second screen. Music or io, the zenbook pro duo, oled comes with two thunderbolt 4 usbc, one usb 3.2 gen, 1 type, a one full size, hdmi 1.4 and one 3.5 millimeter audio jack. As we noted in our impressions we’re satisfied with the ux 582’s connectivity options, though we would have wanted more usb type, a ports as well as an sd card reader.
After all, for a content creator having an sd card reader is pretty much a Music requirement. Given that the zenbook pro duo has a very large secondary touch display there isn’t much space for a keyboard. Thankfully, though, i really enjoy typing in this keyboard, even with a seemingly lack of space, the addition of asus signature number pad on the trackpad is also a nice touch. One thing that’s not ideal, though, is the placement of the keyboard, especially as most laptops, with keyboards closer to the screen, giving your wrist a place to rest. Moving on to the display, if you like to watch movies and tv shows, this laptop is great for you. It has high resolution and vibrant color output. The refreshed zenbook pro duo comes with a 15.6 inch 4k oled screen for comparison. The original pro duo also has a 15 point, inch 4k display, but it’s not an oled screen. This means the laptop is a big improvement for binge watching aside from binge watching, though, the screen is also pantone validated, which should mean it is a good match for content creators who need a more color accurate display, while watching movies or series on the screen pad 2.0, it is not ideal, but i did find a nice use for it. Specifically, i used a second screen to watch anime, while working and the screen pad 2.0 worked quite well for this, even though it’s not an oled screen, the secondary display still uses an ips level panel.
That makes it quite bright plus it has a 4k resolution as well. So while you’re watching something audio is the automatic thing to think about with most zenbooks the pro duo. Oled comes with internal speakers that are tuned by harman kardon. When i tried the onboard speakers out with some of my favorite tracks, i found the audio quality to be very nice, but its output is a bit too quiet even at max volume because of this external speakers or headphones are recommended. If you’re going to watch, listen or work on this notebook, as mentioned, the zenbook pro duo, oled is powered by a 10th gen intel core i7 processor, along with an rtx 3070 studio edition gpu. This makes it a powerhouse of a laptop, even rivaling gaming laptops. In terms of specs and now the gpu is catered more towards content creators, but it has enough power to do some gaming. Firstly, the zenbook pro duo oled is easily able to handle esports titles. At 4k, for example, dota 2 ran at an average of 69.7 frames per second at the max graphics settings and at 4k. Meanwhile, overwatch ran at 69.8 frames per second at the ultra graphics setting and at 4k resolution. If you like, playing esports titles in your downtime, the zenbook pro duo does not disappoint, even if it’s, not a gaming laptop, given that the rtx 3070 is quite a powerful gpu it’s, no surprise that it can also handle triple a games.
For instance, shadow of the tomb raider averaged 43.4 fps at the high graphic settings and at 4k even control ran at a playable 41.4 fps on high at 4k with rtx off. If you do want to play aaa games on the zenbook pro duo, we suggest turning the resolution down to 1440p for a faster and smoother frame rate. Also, the laptop does get noticeably warm when playing. So if you need a laptop for games more than content creation, a dedicated gaming laptop might be a better option, though, if content creation is your primary need, but i want to do a little bit of gaming on the side.

In our battery test we ran a two and a half hour movie at fifty percent. Brightness and volume, with wi fi on the zenbook pro duo, 15 oled still had 59 of charge remaining, while it’s not as long lasting as other zen books. This is still a good result overall, especially considering how it has to power.
