For flexible user-controlled and automatic sound tuning, ASUS includes professional MaxxAudio sound-processing tools and the exclusive ASUS AudioWizard utility. Customers can easily change sound settings or choose one of several presets based on preference and usage.
4th generation Intel Core processors provide fast and smooth performance in all applications, including when handling heavy multitasking loads. For graphics, N Series notebooks ship with discrete NVIDIA GeForce gaming-grade GPUs that support the latest DirectX 11 gaming in high detail.
