3D technology failed on TVs and smartphones. But, ASUS is trying to make it a thing again on consumer products by launching the new ProArt StudioBook 16 3D OLED laptop.
The ASUS ProArt StudioBook 16 3D OLED is the first to have a 16-inch 3D OLED screen that has a 3.2K pixel resolution. It also has fast 120Hz refresh rate. Made for creators, it has 100% DCI-P3 coverage and Delta-E < 2. It can project 3D visuals without the need for 3D glasses. If the 3D doesn’t work to your satisfaction, there’s an easy switch that brings it back to standard 2D.
This 3D screen is not just for entertainment but, as per ASUS, is also for creatives. The company’s Spatial Vision technology allows you to use the screen for 3D design, visualization, and of course, gaming and watching videos.
The technology also uses eye-tracing via the two cameras to know where your eyes at and adjust the 3D image.
To handle the 3D graphics and all the heavy workload you’d throw at it, the new StudioBook 16 can be equipped with an Intel Core i9-13980HX CPU, the latest NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 graphics, up to 8TB of PCIe 4.0 SSD, and up to 64GB of DDR5 RAM.
The machine is cooled by the ASUS IceCool Pro technology that has fans with 102 blades and low noise of < 40dBA.

It also features an advanced touchpad that has haptics and stylus support. And to really unleash your creativity, it comes with ASUS Dial that lets you precisely make adjustments on Adobe apps, skim videos or music, adjust volume, and more.
ASUS even created a ProArt Creator Hub that lets you personalize settings, check device status, and optimize your workflow.
For audio, the device has stereo speakers certified by Harman Kardon. Also onboard is Dolby Atmos, ESS SABRE DAC, and Hi-Res audio to power your expensive headphones. Plus, a 4-mic array for better audio when making calls.
ASUS was also generous in terms of ports. There are two USB-C Thunderbolt 4, two USB 3.2 Gen 2, a headphone jack, HDMI 2.1 FRL, RJ45 LAN, and something that a lot of photographers and videographers would love: D Express 7.0.
The machine is also built well as it has MIL-STD-810H certification, making it essentially military-grade. It also has an anti-fingerprint design and a 180-degree hinge so you can lay it flat and collaborate better.
Now, you’re probably how much this monstrosity will cost. Well, sadly, you have to wait a little longer as the price for the ASUS ProArt StudioBook 16 3D OLED, as well as its availability, is yet to be announced.
