Design & Display
The laptop is 19.9mm thick and weighs 2Kg. The lid is made of metal, while the interior is entirely made of plastic. It doesn’t feel cheap, though, and should last for years. On the lid, there is a large TUF logo, as well as a TUF logo in the top-right corner. However, it would have been preferable if the lid had no branding and only the logo. There are two color choices to choose from:
In terms of presentation, it’s actually very cool. There are two models: a 15.6-inch FHD IPS panel with 144Hz refresh rate and a 15.6-inch FHD IPS panel with 240Hz refresh rate. It has a 100 percent sRGB color range as well as a 75 percent Adobe color space. The aspect ratio is 16:9 in this case. Adaptive sync is also available on the monitor.
We have mixed feelings about the results. It is Intel’s new 11th generation Tiger Lake CPU, the Core i5 11300H/Si7 11370H, which has a base clock speed of 3.1GHz (turbo boost 4.4GHz, i5) and a 3.3GHz boost clock speed (turbo boost 4.8GHz, i7). On paper, they appear to be strong, but the CPUs are only quad-core. In other words, they are simply overclocked versions of Intel’s 11th generation G series processors. The GPU in this case is an Nvidia RTX 3060/3070 with 6GB/8GB of GDDR6 VRAM. The RTX 3070 consumes 80 watts of power when Dynamic Boost is turned on, and 85 watts when it isn’t. You won’t notice a difference in gaming, but you will notice a difference in other tasks such as video rendering and multi-core tasks. Also AMD’s Ryzen 5 4th gen CPUs have six cores for comparison, but a gaming laptop with a quad-core CPU is now a little obsolete.
There is 16GB 3200MHz memory on board in terms of RAM and capacity. There are two X SO-DIMM slots for RAM expansion, allowing you to expand it up to 32GB. A 512GB NVME PCIe Gen3 SSD is included. It comes with a PCIe slot for expansion.
Other Features and the Keyboard
Unlike other Asus business laptops, this one doesn’t have a full-sized keyboard or a magic numpad. It is, however, a backlit chiclet keyboard with a wide 1.7mm travel width. The transparent WASD keys, on the other hand, are pretty cool. The device’s battery capacity is 76 watt-hours, which is adequate but not exceptional given that other high-end laptops have batteries with capacities of 90 watt-hours or more. With low to moderate usage, the company says it can last up to 16.6 hours. A 200W power adapter is included for charging.
It has 1x 3.5mm Combo Audio Jack, 1x HDMI 2.0b, 3x USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-A, 1x RJ45 LAN port, and 1x ThunderboltTM 4 ports in terms of I/O ports. As a result, there are numerous I/O ports available. Two 2W speakers with AI noise cancellation are included. For networking, we’ll get Wifi-6 and Bluetooth 5.1.
