Chassis, Connectivity, Screen of the Asus TUF 765GE-EV242T
Asus signs a new “hexagonal” design on its TUF line, between sobriety and intimidation. The shell is structured, steep angles and colorful accents (golden here) are present without being too with an elegance worked around a brushed effect on the lid and around the keyboard. The frame is made almost entirely of plastic with a metallic finish on the back of the lid and the dimensions are optimized with a reasonable weight around 2.6 kg . Compaction of the hull is especially encouraged by the arrival of the NanoEdge screen with thin edges (7.18 mm).
Asus has developed its TUF line based on robustness and durability. Asus TUF 765GE-EV242T meets the MIL-STD-810G military standard for all-round durability (extreme heat, shock, drop, humidity, altitude, sun exposure). The keyboard has been reworked in this same optics with a lifetime estimated at 20 million keystrokes for each key. Highlighted by yellow details on the height of each key, it offers a multicolored backlight with ZQSD underlined keys.
It surprises a bit initially but the entire right side of the PC is devoid of connectivity. It is gathered on the left edge and consists of three USB ports including two USB 3.1, an HDMI 2.0 output, a Gigabit Ethernet port, a headphone jack and a power outlet. That’s all. Asus has set aside the USB Type-C and the SD card reader which is very reductive but should still be enough for basic use. The wireless modules are entrusted to Wifi AC and Bluetooth 5.0 latest generation.
Then let’s talk about the screen that catches the eye at first glance on this Asus TUF 765GE-EV242T. And for good reason, highlighted by a thin frame, it sports high-end specifications: IPS panel with a refresh rate of 144 Hz . Intensive players will certainly appreciate the extra 24 frames per second compared to the more widely crossed 120 Hz. Especially since the angles of vision are excellent thanks to the IPS panel which, let us emphasize it, is not generally noticed for its liveliness. Full HD definition (1920 x 1080px) is the most suitable for gamers and allows you to make the most of your High Definition content while the matte treatment prevents the ambient brightness from reflecting on the screen, improving the playing comfort (especially in dark scenes).
Performance, autonomy of the Asus TUF 765GE-EV242T
The Asus 765GE-EV242T shows the muscles with the support of a Hexa Core i7-8750H Coffee Lake which allows to glimpse big resources in multicore tasks, in the service of versatility. Indeed, its 6 cores (12 logical multi-threading) are valuable when you work on greedy applications type 3D modeling, parallelization, video editing … In front, the 8 GB of RAM gives it a good flexibility in multitasking , nothing more.
If your use is focused on the game, know that the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti in its version with 4 GB GDDR5 dedicated is quite convincing. It is particularly able to compete with intensive players and ensure honorable frequencies in Full HD on all securities in the market. Assimilated to a GTX 970M, it meets some limits in “Ultra” level in the most demanding opuses. In addition, it is not part of the cards that support virtual reality unlike the GTX 1060 and beyond.
Storage is there to promote system responsiveness without compromising on capacity. In fact, the 256 GB dedicated NVMe PCIe SSD will be able to accommodate the operating system and all programs and games and thus contribute to the most responsive execution, shortened download times and an overall brighter environment. The hard drive of 1000 GB in addition is there to allow you to archive all of your toy library.
Finally, transportation is not the vocation of this 17-inch laptop. But if you want to take it in your travels, know that the autonomy oscillates between 4 and 5 hours in Web browsing with active Wifi.
