Well, you can’t say you can’t get a high-end GPU in a Ryzen gaming laptop anymore. That former truth was shattered on Tuesday when Asus announced a new Zephyrus Duo 15 SE featuring an AMD Ryzen 5900HX and a GeForce RTX 3080 inside.

The Zephyrus Duo 15 SE weighs about 5.3 lbs, features a magnesium-alumide (yes, alumide) body, a 90 watt hour battery, and (as its name implies) two screens.

The primary panel is a 15.6-inch screen that can be had with either a high-frame rate 300Hz 1080p screen or a a 120Hz 4K UHD IPS panel. The secondary 14.1-inch panel comes in a 3840x1100 resolution or 1920x550. Both are IPS and touch-enabled. The Zephyrus Duo 15 SE’s secondary panel tilts up like the previous iteration, which aids in cooling by creating a direct air flow through the chassis and components. For this version, Asus said it has improved cooling performance even more with a new “radically� redesigned fan blade that varies in thickness from the base to the tip. The blades actually actually are shaped to reduce turbulence and fan noise and results in a 13 percent improved air flow.
