ASUS has finally revealed the new TUF Gaming FX505 and FX705 laptops that bring together the latest AMD Ryzen processor and NVIDIA GeForce GTX GPUs on an up to 120Hz IPS-level NanoEdge display at an affordable price. Find the details below!
With up to a 120Hz refresh rate, the FX505 enables smoother gameplay on its expansive display thanks to NanoEdge bezels. The 15.6″ panel also comes in a 60Hz flavour that is better for graphically-demanding games that run closer to 60 FPS. For users who prefer a larger screen, the FX705 stretches the diagonal to 17.3″ and is available with a 60Hz panel too.
The TUF Gaming laptops are available with up to a Ryzen 7 CPU that features quad cores and eight threads with ample performance. The powerful GeForce GTX 1660 Ti puts triple-digit FPS within reach in popular games. Despite the ability to slice through multithreaded workloads and aggressive multitasking, the processor fits into an energy efficient 35W power envelope that preserves battery life.
With room for up to 32GB of DDR4 memory, there is enough RAM for productive multitasking and light content creation. It comes with SSDs up to 512GB, a 1TB FireCuda SSHD, and 1TB HDDs as well. The storage bays and memory slots are readily accessible with a standard screwdriver, so it’s easy to upgrade as needed.
TUF Gaming laptops are available in 2 chassis variations. Gold Steel skins the lid with Gunmetal Grey aluminium and adds customizable colour through Aura RGB lighting in the keyboard. While Stealth Black keeps a lower profile with a shadowy exterior punctuated by keyboard backlighting. Both exhibit the sharp lines and angular accents that define the TUF Gaming aesthetic, right down to the distinctive Radiating-X design on the lid.
These machines meet military-grade MIL-STD-810G standards, passing demanding tests that ensure survival in extreme environments, and with ambient vibration and accidental knocks. Both versions bounce back from short drops to a desk, and the 15″ models can handle higher falls.
TUF Gaming FX505 and FX705 will be available in Q2 2019. Be sure to stay tuned to the official ASUS Facebook for more updates about their prices and launch date in Malaysia!
