Chassis, connectors, screen of Asus TUF Gaming A15 TUF566IU-AL140T
With its frame with angular lines with a silver aluminum shell and black interior conforming to the American military resistance standard MIL-STD-810G, it has a clearly gamer but also original look.
HyperCool technology (adjustable via the Fan Overboost function) takes care of its cooling, using 2 fans with 2 heat pipes as well as Anti-Dust Cooling technology to limit dust.
This creative gamer-oriented laptop PC has a good connection including wireless Bluetooth 5 and Wi-Fi ac modules to communicate and connect remotely, a useful HDMI video output to easily connect it to a TV or monitor via example, Ethernet and audio ports, 1 USB 3.1 Type-C (absent from the previous generation of Asus TUF) but also 3 USB compatible with both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0, the USB 3.0 guaranteeing transfers made up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 devices are connected to it.
We can obviously backlight the chiclet keyboard, here with an RGB system, which is very practical to distinguish its keys in a dimly lit environment.
The screen will be of interest to gamers with its 144Hz refresh rate which enhances the fluidity in games compared to the 60Hz standard. It is equipped with significant viewing angles, both horizontally and vertically, thanks to its IPS technology, which nevertheless provides average colorimetry, below that of more high-end IPS panels. The screen is also very suitable for displaying High Definition content such as videos thanks to its precise Full HD definition and its 16: 9 format. Anti-reflective coating, the screen also offers better visibility than a shiny panel in a bright environment (eg outdoors).
Performance, battery life of the Asus TUF Gaming A15 TUF566IU-AL140T
The Asus TUF Gaming A15 TUF566IU-AL140T targets those looking for a versatile 15-inch laptop that performs well, is creative and gaming oriented.
It will appeal to those who wish to obtain a high storage capacity because it offers no less than 1.2 TB in this area, which is more than the average. Hybrid, the storage consists of a 256 GB SSD designed to accommodate the main software / games in addition to the system, the rest taking place on the very comfortable 1000 GB hard drive.
In practice, the SSD guarantees much better fluidity and responsiveness to use than a hard drive. Thus, for example, we benefit from much faster processing such as starts / stops and launches of games / software, or a faster arrival on the cards of online games.
The core of this laptop will be of particular interest to creatives because it is based on an AMD APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) Renoir Octo Core Ryzen 7 4800H processor coupled with a good amount of 16 GB RAM. The result is much more processing. faster than a Quad / Hexa Core processor and 8 GB DDR4. The difference is particularly important in areas requiring CPU and RAM resources that take advantage of multicore, such as video editing, photo editing or 3D rendering.
As a bonus, processing is also accelerated by the dedicated NVIDIA Turing GeForce GTX 1660 Ti onboard graphics card. This is at least the case with software that takes advantage of GPU computing power, such as Adobe Premiere / Photoshop and Sony Vegas.
The GeForce GTX 1660 Ti will also be of interest to gamers since thanks to it, you can play as many games as possible as long as you agree to settings under the opuses that consume the most graphics resources to obtain good gameplay.
In addition, built-in NVIDIA Optimus technology assesses graphics requirements in real time based on tasks performed. It favors as much as possible operation on the Radeon Vega 7 solution integrated into the Octo Core AMD Renoir processor despite its more modest performance than the GTX 1660 Ti (however higher than that of Intel UHDs) because its reduced energy consumption favors autonomy.
Optimus activates the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti to perform graphics processing deemed too heavy for the Vega 7, for example for gaming. With one or the other, you can obviously watch photos and videos
Finally on the autonomy side, expect around 6 hours of battery operation in light use for this computer which of course is heard in the event of strong demands (eg: treatments, games) and heats up under the same conditions, but at levels within the range. good average of a gaming PC.
