Asus’ new ZenBook Pro is the thinnest and fastest ZenBook Pro ever

In Uncategorized by The VergeLeave a Comment

Page Views:

Asus has a new model in its ZenBook Pro line, the UX550, that the company claims is the “fastest, thinnest, and lightest ZenBook Pro” that it’s ever made.

A seventh-generation Intel Core i7 processor is up there, but Intel has already released eighth-generation processors. Similarly, the Nvidia GTX 1050 Ti GPU is good, but outclassed by Nvidia’s more powerful cards. And the 15.6-inch display is a somewhat disappointing 1080p panel instead of something higher resolution. Rounding out the hardware are a 5... Read More

Whether Equifax can recover from this in the long-term is still to be seen.

Or was Clinton killed by the same media ecosystem t... Read More
