Together, the ProArt StudioBook, ASUS ZenBook Pro and VivoBook Pro creator laptops make up an advanced ecosystem of laptops that delivers performance and features suitable for any level of creator, from professional to hobbyist.
Before we dive deep into the details of each series, here’s a quick breakdown of what to expect:
- ASUS’ best ever laptops for creators features up to 16-inch 4K OLED HDR 16:10 displays
- ProArt StudioBook Pro 16 OLED is world’s first AMD Ryzen™ powered NVIDIA RTX™ Studio laptop

ASUS ProArt StudioBook: Top-notch performance for Professional Creators
Graphics-intensive creative applications demand powerful graphics processors. Validated as NVIDIA® Studio laptops, the ProArt StudioBook laptops—ProArt StudioBook Pro 16 OLED and ProArt StudioBook 16 OLED—fulfil the extreme performance and stability needs of professional creators, who are leaders and innovators in their respective creative industries, whether they work with audiovisual content, engineering, or science.
Powered by the latest AMD Ryzen™ 5000 H-Series Mobile Processors (W5600) or a 3rd Generation Intel Xeon workstation processor (W7600), the ProArt StudioBook Pro 16 OLED is the world’s first AMD Ryzen™ powered NVIDIA RTX™ Studio laptop.
On the other hand, the ProArt StudioBook 16 OLED uses powerful AMD Ryzen™ 5000 H-Series Mobile Processors (H5600) or Intel Core™ i9 (H7600) processors, with GeForce RTX™ 3070 (H5600) or 3060 (H7600) graphics.
For professional-grade visuals, the ProArt StudioBook Pro 16 OLED and the ProArt StudioBook 16 OLED are equipped with up to a 16-inch 4K OLED HDR 16:10 550-nit display that provides a large visual workspace for content-creation apps. These fast 60 Hz displays are perfect for colour-critical 2D and 3D visual applications, with a cinema-grade 100% DCI-P3 colour gamut, PANTONE Validated and Calman Verified certifications, along with factory-calibrated Delta-E < 2 colour accuracy and VESA DisplayHDR 500 True Black accreditation for a 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio.
Both laptops feature dual ultrafast PCIe® SSDs, up to 64 GB of 3200 MHz DDR4 RAM, and high-speed connectivity including the latest Thunderbolt™ 4 (W7600/H7600) or USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C®, HDMI® 2.1, and an SD Express 7.0 card reader.
The ProArt series also features an exciting new feature: the ASUS Dial. Creators are all too familiar with the pain points of working off of a keyboard. Oftentimes, it feels clunky and unintuitive. ASUS understands that too. The ASUS Dial, a physical rotary control that lets users interact with creative apps in the most natural and immersive way possible, gives instant and precise fingertip control over parameters in compatible Adobe creative apps, including Photoshop®, Premiere® Pro, Photoshop Lightroom® Classic, and After Effects®.
All connected ProArt devices will be provided with a unified experience with the ProArt Creator Hub app. A quick glance at the dashboard gives you an overview of all your connected ProArt devices. On the dashboard, you’ll be able to configure your settings, calibrate colours, monitor performance, and optimise your workflow. You’ll even be able to keep track of system parameters like processor load, memory usage, or the fan status of your connected device.
