ROG ScreenPad Plus
Adding another display presents a unique challenge in an ultra-slim form factor. Every millimeter of space and gram of weight must be considered, and the secondary screen needs to be large enough to be useful and convenient for touch or stylus use. ASUS pioneered this type of display with the original ZenBook Pro Duo, and ROG took it to the next level.
The ROG Zephyrus Duo 15 SE puts the same ScreenPad Plus secondary display on a tilting platform that enhances comfort and utility while also opening a large intake that improves airflow for the cooling system. When the laptop is opened, the ROG ScreenPad Plus rises up at a 13° angle for easy viewing and touchscreen interaction. This motion is fluid and carefully choreographed by a custom hinge that staggers the rise of the displays.
At 14.1”, this is the largest second display available in a production gaming laptop. The IPS panel stretches wide viewing angles across the full width of the body and provides large amounts of extra space. Gamers can enjoy a smoother experience by playing on the main screen while keeping chats and broadcast controls accessible below. Content creators can work on the primary display without clutter, keeping their toolbars, timelines, and reference materials on the second screen. Other types of multitasking also benefit from an extension of the desktop. The touchscreen even works with the ASUS Pen active stylus, allowing users to handwrite and sketch.
ROG is working with game developers and artists to bring new experiences to the ROG ScreenPad Plus. Techland’s eagerly anticipated Dying Light 2 moves co-op chats to the secondary screen for easy viewing and adds touchscreen controls for quick switching between inventory items and quests. Sharing a second-screen platform with ASUS ZenBook Pro Duo laptops offers compatibility with a powerful ProArt Control Panel coming to those devices. ROG’s Art of the Duo competition also showed how artists can use the extra display to meld game-inspired music and visuals.
The ROG ScreenPad Plus also works with many tools and apps that intuitively enhance day-to-day work and play. Task Group takes snapshots of users’ preferred app layouts across both screens and loads optimized setups for different scenarios. ROG’s Armoury Crate system utility scales down for the second screen and displays a helpful resource monitor that tracks vital stats like CPU and GPU frequencies. XSplit Gamecaster is optimized for the second screen, making it easy to manage a broadcast and game simultaneously. Overwolf offers a multi-display advantage with enhancements like real-time stats, build recommendations, and more for popular games. And digital audio workstation FL Studio moves its mixer within reach on the ScreenPad Plus, which also gives music producers more room on the main display for the app’s other tools.
