The new N Series from ASUS encompasses a full range of notebook PCs that are the first ever to address compromised multimedia capabilities on portable computers. The new models arrive in 14, 15.6 and 17.3 inch screen sizes, and ship with Intel® Core™ i3, i5 and i7 processors. They feature new NVIDIA GeForce 400M graphics engines with Optimus technology, resulting in powerful computing and multimedia performance and improved battery life.
Dedicated to Delivering the Best Audio
N Series notebooks now offer ASUS exclusive technology SonicMaster, a new audio hardware and software standard. Co-developed with Bang & Olufsen ICEpower®, SonicMaster completely reinvents the way audio is treated on notebooks. It produces results on a par with standalone audio systems, establishing a new yardstick by which to measure sound performance.
SonicMaster offers deeper and richer bass, a wider frequency range for greater fidelity, an overall power upgrade of sound generating hardware, and distinct vocals.
N Series notebooks feature the finest video performance available on portable PCs. They utilize the new discrete NVIDIA GeForce 400M series of graphics processors, based on Fermi technology with native DirectX11 support. This offers users upgraded high definition graphics for gaming and multimedia entertainment.
They also use NVIDIA Optimus graphics switching technology, which alternates between integrated and discrete graphics processing, based on application demands. This leads to better-tuned performance and extended battery life.
Exclusive ASUS Video Magic technology enhances image quality, upscaling content to full HD while making sure image properties and parameters are optimized.
Host of New Technologies
Complementing the use of NVIDIA Optimus, the ASUS-developed Super Hybrid Engine intelligently switches between power consumption modes to ensure better, more streamlined performance and a lower energy profile.
N Series notebooks also offer USB 3.0, the latest data transfer standard. This new format works up to ten times faster than USB 2.0, so that even a 25GB high definition file only takes 70 seconds to process under optimal conditions.
