13th Gen Intel Core Performance
The system is powered by a 13th Gen Intel Core i9-13980HX processor. It can reach a stock speed of 2.2 GHz and can be boosted up to 5.6 GHz. There are eight performance cores and sixteen efficiency cores for a total of 24 cores.
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 40-Series Graphics
The dedicated NVIDIA GeForce RTX 40-Series graphics card is designed to deliver high frame rates and advanced features such as real-time ray tracing, artificial intelligence, and more to enhance your entertainment and content creation experiences.
16" ROG Nebula HDR Display

For a fully customized touch, ASUS also has a 3D printing template that makes it easy to create original looks of your own.
Windows 11 Pro
Microsoft simplified the design and user experience with Windows 11. It has a modern, clean design with a new Start Menu position. Snap Layouts, Groups, and Desktops allow you to multitask with ease. Microsoft has also integrated some of their apps, such as Microsoft Teams. The redesigned Microsoft Store makes it easier to look for supported apps.
