The new ZenBook Pro 15 starts off with the Core i5-8300H which is a 4C/8T chip, the Core i7-8750H which is a 6C/12T processor, or the flagship Core i9-8950HK that has 12MB off cache and boosts up to 4.5GHz. All of the machines rock an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 with 4GB of GDDR5.

The base models have 8GB of DDR4 RAM, while the higher-end models rock 16GB and as for storage, you'll have 512GB or 1TB SATA or PCIe SSDs. ASUS is using a 15.6-inch display with a native 1920 x 1080 resolution, but there is an optional 4K touchscreen that ASUS offers, something that uses 100% of the Adobe RGB color space.

ASUS hasn't provided any pricing or availability for the new ZenBook Pro 15, but I'm sure we'll hear all about it in a couple of weeks time at Computex 2018.
