On the software side, zeus is also introducing a new digital experience for users with an emphasis on creative solutions.

SECURITY

Security also benefits with AI. These new AI PCs have advanced intelligent privacy settings with Adaptive Lock and other AI-powered privacy features.

Adaptive Lock monitors the user’s presence via an ASUS AI-Sense IR camera and locks the PC when the user moves away from the device and unlocks on their return.
