ASUS Malaysia Announces Zenbook S 16 & Vivobook S 15

ASUS Malaysia today announced the pre-order promotion for the Zenbook S 16 (UM5606), the first ultrathin 16-inch new-era ASUS AI PC, which combines performance with sophistication.

The premium Zenbook S 16 has a new functional aesthetic, and has been completely redesigned from the inside out. The chassis incorporates our exquisite new Ceraluminum™, a high-tech ceramic hybrid material in a range of nature-inspired colours. This industry-first innovation boasts unparalleled strength, defying scratches and wear with ease.

Zenbook S 16 is powered by the latest AMD Ryzen™ AI 9 HX 370 processor with Radeon™ 890M graphics which is capable of up to 50 dedicated NPU TOPS. Thanks to the use of advanced CNC milling, we’ve managed to incorporate a 3D vapour chamber in the ultra-quiet ambient cooling system — unique in such a thin device — to ensure a maximum performance of up to 28 W CPU TDP with minimal noise. The functional design reduces friction between the user and the device, with features such as a dedicated Copilot key and a 40%-larger2 16:10 seamless touchpad that supports smart gestures.

Immersive entertainment is delivered by the 3K 120 Hz ASUS Lumina OLED display, which when combined with the powerful six-speaker audio system — an unprecedented feature in such a thin laptop ensures a truly cinematic experience.

The device is robustly protected by the Microsoft Pluton security processor, and the convenient new Windows passkeys feature allows users to store authentication data securely with no chance of leakage. Upgraded biometric security and privacy features powered by the AiSense IR camera system include facial recognition for automatic login and logout, Adaptive Lock and Adaptive Dimming.

Newly designed with a functional aesthetic, Zenbook S 16 incorporates our new Ceraluminum™ material, providing the characteristics of hardness while completing the ultra-slim design and withstand the test of time. We spent four years fine-tuning the colors, texture and hardness of this innovative material, and the results speak for themselves.

Leveraging cutting-edge CNC technology, Zenbook S 16 manages to achieve a remarkable thickness of just 1.1 cm while housing a comprehensive array of leading-edge components, including an advanced vapor-chamber cooling system. Zenbook S 16 is the only laptop combining such sleekness and functionality. Moreover, Zenbook S 16 is the thinnest and most compact3 16-inch laptop, reinforcing our dedication to delivering top-notch performance without sacrificing portability. As well as helping achieve the ultrathin design, CNC machining is also used to create the exclusive geometric grille design above the keyboard, and also to cut the extra-large touchpad area. The laptop is finished in a choice of two new nature-inspired shades — Zumaia Gray or Scandinavian White.

Zenbook S 16 does more for its users, offering next-generation AI capabilities in an ultrathin form factor. It’s equipped with the latest AMD Ryzen AI 300-Series Processors, along with 32 GB of fast RAM and 1 TB PCIe® 4.0 SSD. The processor boasts a TDP of up to 28 watts and features a built-in Ryzen AI engine that delivers up to 50 TOPS of power-efficient performance for modern AI applications, helping the high-capacity 78 Wh battery to deliver all-day autonomy.

Zenbook S 16 focuses on providing an effortless, intuitive and friction-free user experience. There’s a dedicated Windows Copilot key on the ASUS ErgoSense keyboard, which allows users to call up Windows AI assistance in just a second with one press. The 40%-larger ultra-smooth touchpad matches the screen’s 16:10 ‘golden ratio’ aspect ratio for intuitive control, and the extra area increases comfort and makes the use of smart gestures easier, so users can seamlessly perform tasks such as adjusting the audio volume, screen brightness quickly for frictionless video viewing.

For easy on-the-go device connections, the ultra-compact Zenbook S 16 boasts a full set of I/O ports, including two USB4 Type-C®, a USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-A, HDMI® 2.1, an SD card reader, and an audio combo jack. WiFi 7 with ASUS WiFi Master Premium certification ensures the fastest, most reliable connections everywhere. Immersive, lifelike visuals are provided by the big, bright and clear 3K 120 Hz ASUS Lumina OLED display, which is Pantone Validated® and DisplayHDR True Black 500 certified for outstanding color and HDR performance. The cinema-grade 100% DCI-P3 gamut ensures vivid colors.

For a true cinematic experience Zenbook S 16 includes a powerful six-speaker Harman Kardon-certified audio system, a remarkable engineering feat in such a thin device. There are two high-frequency tweeters and four low-frequency woofers that deliver full-range multi-dimensional Dolby Atmos® sound. The result is an audiovisual experience that is truly immersive and incredibly lifelike, with heightened emotion added to movies, games and music.

Particular care has been taken to reduce noise in Zenbook S 16. The advanced 3D vapor-chamber cooling system with dual Iceblade fans allows an under-25 dB ambient cooling mode, as well as automatically adjusting to enable the full 28 W TDP performance when demanded. An attractively designed geometric grille above the keyboard maximizes airflow while minimizing the risk of dust or dirt ingress.

Effortless user privacy and security are a top priority, so Zenbook S 16 supports Windows passkeys and Microsoft Pluton, which integrates cutting-edge hardware, firmware, and software to defend against evolving threats. Windows passkeys use Windows Hello’s facial recognition to ensure secure access to the user’s authentication data, so they don’t have to remember passwords or other private details.

Windows Hello facial recognition is enabled by the ASUS AiSense IR camera. This camera also supports the convenience of Adaptive Lock, which monitors user presence and locks the laptop when the user moves away. Finally, Adaptive Dimming enhances privacy by dimming the screen when the user looks away from the screen.
