Initially the new range will comprise the 23.8-inch Zen AiO Z240IC and 21.5-inch Zen AiO Z220IC which boast an aluminum unibody shell. Oh, and are available in gold, if that's your sort of thing.
Spec wise we're looking at options up to an Intel Core i7 CPU, which ASUS also says is the "latest generation of quad-core" chips. Add to that up to 32GB of RAM, PCIe SSD storage and an NVIDIA GTX 960M graphics card, and the Zen AiO can sit on your desk packing a serious punch.
The good news doesn't end there, either. The Zen AiO uses not only the latest and greatest USB 3.1 Gen 2, but also USB Type C. The larger, Z240IC model, also boasts Intel RealSense technology in its on-board camera, with the ability to recognize and record in 3 dimensions.
At the time of writing there's no mention of price or availability, but it's an incredible sounding PC. Check out the full press release below.
Computex, Taipei, Taiwan (1st June, 2015) — ASUS Chairman Jonney Shih went on stage at Computex today during the Zensation press event to unveil a stunning range of new products designed to bring harmony and simplicity to people's personal and professional lives. Inspired by the power and beauty of nature, the Zensation theme showcases the ASUS design philosophy of incorporating diverse elements to produce balanced creations that provide incredible experiences and accessible beauty to users.
Zen AiO Series
Zen AiO Series is a premium range of all-in-one PCs — initially comprising the 23.8-inch Zen AiO Z240IC and 21.5-inch Zen AiO Z220IC — that fuse art with industry-leading technology, providing a perfect balance of beauty and performance for the ultimate home-computing experience. A masterpiece of craftsmanship and design, Zen AiO features a slim and elegant unibody shell — forged from a solid block of anodized-aluminum — that tapers to just 6mm thin at the edges, with a precision-crafted matching integral stand. The smooth, sophisticated appearance is enhanced by edge-to-edge glass that covers the display, a rear cover finished in our signature Zen-inspired concentric circle design, and a stylish yet subtle Icicle Gold color.
Zen AiO provides out-of-the-ordinary performance for discerning home users. Using the latest generation of quad-core Intel® CoreTM up to i7 processors, combined with up to 32GB of the lightning-fast DDR4 memory and up to PCIe® Gen 3 x 4 SSD storage, Zen AiO has power to spare for instant responsiveness and ultra-smooth and immersive entertainment. Dedicated NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX™ 960M gaming-grade graphics with up to a class-leading 4GB of video memory ensure users can enjoy stutter-free full HD movies and videos and play the latest games at full resolution. As the world's first all-in-one PC to use the next-generation USB 3.1 Gen 2, Zen AiO delivers blindingly-fast data transfers of up to 10Gbit/s —twice as fast as USB 3.0, and over twenty times faster than USB 2.0. It also uses the latest USB 3.1 Type-C connector for improved ease of use — the connector is reversible, so it can't be inserted the wrong way round.
Zen AiO Z240IC has an amazingly-accurate 3D camera that uses Intel RealSense™ technology to add futuristic interactive capabilities. Accurate motion-sensing of people or objects in front of the camera is now possible, enabling previously-unimagined ways of interacting with a PC. For example, with precise 3D facial recognition, a user's face can become their login password, or families can just have fun interacting with the latest motion-controlled games.
Zen AiO is designed for the ultimate home entertainment, using a total of 6 speakers to deliver rich and clear full-range sound. Each 8-watt stereo channel uses three powerful speakers located at either side of Zen AiO, giving fully-realistic stereo separation and a total of 16 watts of pure, undistorted sound for an amazingly-lifelike entertainment experience. Zen AiO gives users an awesome audio experience, whether they're watching the latest blockbuster movie, enjoying games or relaxing with music.
