The ASUS Turkey branch has recently provided images of the newest Zenbook laptops with the introduction of the Zenbook 14, which will be the first in the company's laptops to start featuring the latest Zen 3-powered AMD Ryzen 7 7730U CPU.
First images of the ASUS Zenbook 14 appear on the company's official Turkey website, features next-gen AMD Ryzen 7 7730U CPU
The new ASUS Zenbook 14 will offer a Zen 3-based processor with onboard AMD Radeon graphics and 1TB PCIe Gen 3.0 x4 SSD. While there are no complete specifications to gather information on, we know that the new Zenbook will utilize the AMD Ryzen 7 7730U processor. From data collected from AMD through slides, we know that the numbering system tells us the series and architecture used. Up to 16 GB of RAM and wireless WiFi 6E 802.11ax connectivity.
The ASUS Turkey site also provides information on Ryzen 5000 series processors used in another configuration of the Zenbook 14, so the company may also offer a lower-level, cost-friendly option for consumers. With the current information on the website, the Ryzen 7000 series option can be speculated to be the Cezanne chips that are being reused for the newest AMD processors.
The laptop is 1.39 kg in weight, 16.9mm in thickness, and uses 75W power consumption. It offers a long battery life but is expected to be used as an everyday laptop for less powerful situations, such as word processing, browsing the web, streaming movies and shows, and other tasks that would not tax the system. The screen size is 14.5-inches, offering 2.5K resolution with up to 400 nits of brightness and 100% sRGB gamut. The highest resolution for the new Zenbook 14 from ASUS is a 2560 x 1600 16:10 display.
