Asus continues to throw OLED screens in all the things, including the Vivobook notebook family, which are traditionally lower-cost alternatives to the company’s Zenbook line of premium laptops.

This year’s VivoBook lineup includes several thin and light models with 14 inch displays and OLED screens in the 14 to 14.5 inch range.

Asus hasn’t announced pricing or availability details for the new laptops yet, but the company has revealed detailed specs for the new models, which all weigh less than four pounds, all have 70 Wh batteries, and all sports high-res OLED displays with 120 Hz refresh rates:

All models with Intel processors have at least one Thunderbolt 4 port, while the AMD model has USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C ports instead, and three out of four of the new laptops come with a 90-watt USB-C power supply.

The one model that comes with a 150-watt AC adapter instead is the only new 14 inch model available with discrete graphics, which helps explain the need for the more powerful charger.

Asus is also introduces several new VivoBook Pro laptops with 15 or 16 inch displays, all of which support discrete graphics and some of which are available with up to an Intel Core i9-12900H processor or an AMD Ryzen 9 6900HX chip.

  1. Are the Ryzen 6000 chips not able to support USB 4? Why are they still wiring the USB C port on the AMD machine for USB 3.1 (I don’t care for USB-IF’s dumb naming schemes) when USB 4 should be used instead to match the Intel machines using TB? Is this just another contractual anti-competition thing Intel is forcing them to do?
