ROG ScreenPad Plus

The ROG ScreenPad Plus is the gaming laptop’s secondary display which can be used to show useful information or for placing vital hotkeys to enhance your productivity. The ROG ScreenPad Plus tilts up at a 13° angle for comfortable viewing and touchscreen interaction. The secondary screen is carefully choreographed using a custom hinge to prevent damage with the main display.

The ROG ScreenPad Plus uses an IPS panel with superb viewing angles. It has a 3840 x 1100 resolution boasts a high pixel density that delivers rich details, crisp text, and flowing lines at a smooth 60 Hz refresh rate.

Active Aerodynamic System (AAS) Plus

The original ROG Zephyrus revolutionized ultra-slim laptop cooling with an innovative Active Aerodynamic System (AAS) that opens a large intake vent as the lid is lifted. The ROG Zephyrus Duo 15’s AAS Plus uses the tilting touchscreen to open a larger 28.5 mm air intake allows the laptop to take cooler air above instead of the warmer air from beneath the laptop. This generates 30% more airflow compared to previous AAS implementations, improving performance while noise is kept below 46 dB(A) in Turbo mode and 43 dB(A) in Performance mode.

For Zephyrus Duo 15, users can choose between an ultrafast 300 Hz / 3 ms gaming panel or a high-resolution 4K UHD display. Competitive gamers can take advantage of the swift 300Hz refresh rate and 3ms response time for blur-free gaming visuals. On the other hand, the 4K UHD display offers incredible visuals at the highest fidelity detail. Both of these displays are factory calibrated and PANTONE Validated to guarantee colour accuracy, but this particular panel also covers 100% of the Adobe RGB colour space. Both primary display options use NVIDIA G-SYNC technology.
