Versatile laptop at a controlled price, the new Asus FX570DD-DM020T with 15-inch Full HD anti-reflective screen is powerful in current use with its AMD Quad Core Ryzen 5 Picasso processor and its good amount of RAM. It is also able to run not too greedy games with its NVIDIA GeForce GTX graphics card which accelerates multimedia processing and benefits from fast SSD storage which reinforces reactivity as well as a USB 3.1 Type-C connection, all in a black and turquoise frame.

Chassis, connectors, screen of the Asus FX570DD-DM020T
With its black brushed metal finish chassis with touches of turquoise blue, it sports an original and elegant design.
Rechargeable to 60% in 49 minutes, it has IceCool technology which keeps the temperatures of the wrist rest below 36 °.
This relatively thin and light computer has good connectivity including a USB 3.1 Type-C, Wi-Fi ac and Bluetooth 4.1 wireless modules for remote connections and communications, a practical HDMI video output for easy connection to a TV or a monitor for example, audio and Ethernet ports without forgetting 3 USB all compatible with both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0, USB 3.0 guaranteeing transfers taking place up to 10 times faster than in USB 2.0 if you plug in a USB 3.0 device.
Thanks to its anti-reflective treatment, the screen offers better visibility than a bright panel in a bright environment (ex: outdoor). As it adopts a 16: 9 format and a precise Full HD definition, it is also very suitable for displaying videos and more generally High Definition content.
Performance, autonomy of the Asus FX570DD-DM020T
The Asus FX570DD-DM020T is a versatile 15 inch laptop designed for versatile use.
It delivers good general performance capable of satisfying a number of users thanks to its AMD APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) Quad Core Ryzen 5 3500U low consumption Picasso processor and its good amount of 8 GB RAM, appreciable in multitasking.
However it must be borne in mind that to regularly carry out work requiring processor resources, it is better to turn to a PC with a non-low power processor.
In any case, this laptop benefits from an SSD storage guaranteeing a much better fluidity and reactivity in everyday life than a hard drive. In practice, thanks to the SSD, start / stop, launch software / games and processing much faster, but also a faster arrival on the cards of online games.
An SSD is indeed much faster than a hard drive but also more energy efficient, more shock resistant and quieter. In addition here, we find a 512 GB SSD on board, a capacity rivaling hard drives.
And if it turns out to be too fair, there is always the possibility of relying on an external storage unit such as a USB 3.0 device to benefit from fast transfers.
Whether with the Radeon Vega 8 graphics solution integrated into the processor or the dedicated GeForce GTX 1050 card, it is of course possible to view photos and videos on this relatively thin and light computer equipped with NVIDIA Optimus technology.
Optimus automatically switches in practice in real time between the Vega 8 and the GeForce GTX 1050, as needed. The Vega 8 is in practice significantly more efficient than the UHD 620 of Intel processors, in fact at the level of an entry-level graphics card. It is favored as much as possible by Optimus because it consumes little energy which promotes autonomy compared to the GeForce GTX 1050.
Thanks to the more powerful and greedy GeForce GTX 1050 than the Vega 8, this computer is capable of taking care of a lot of games as long as one consents to adaptations under the titles greedy in graphic resources to obtain a good playability.
Some software can use the GTX 1050 to speed up multimedia processing, at least for those who do not require more than 2 GB dedicated.
In all cases with its weight contained at less than 2 Kg and its controlled thickness, this versatile computer sees its transport facilitated. Side autonomy, put on about 4 hours of battery operation in light use.
