ASUS Zenbook S 16 debuts at COMPUTEX ’24: 16” OLED, AMD Ryzen AI 9 365

ASUS unveiled a wave of laptops at COMPUTEX, but the Zenbook S16 steals the show.

This 16-inch machine boasts the company’s proprietary “Ceraluminum” chassis — a lightweight, durable blend of ceramic and aluminum. Surprisingly thin (1.1cm) and light (1.5kg), it’s ideal for travel.

The laptop packs the latest AMD Ryzen AI 9 processor with on-device AI processing. It uses up to 32GB RAM, 2TB SSD storage, and the cutting-edge Wi-Fi 7.

For thermals, it deploys a silent (25dB) dual-fan cooling system with a vapor chamber, enabling a 29W TDP without throttling. The display is a 16-inch 3K OLED marvel with HDR, Dolby Vision, and Pantone validation. Low blue light emission (TUV and SGS certified) protects your eyes. It also gets Harman Kardon’s 6-speaker Dolby Atmos setup.

Inside is a 78Wh battery paired with a 65W USB-C adapter. Despite its thin profile, ASUS includes a full range of ports: USB-A 3.2 Gen 2, two USB-C 4.0 ports, HDMI 2.1, an SD card reader, and a headphone jack.

JM's highest stat is probably his curious ardor to anything tech—electronics and gaming in particular. He certainly heeds utmost regard to specsheet, visuals, and rule of thirds. If creativity and wit sometimes leave JM's system, watching films, anime and a good stroll for memes are his approved therapeutic claims.
