Playing and working in detail on a large format laptop PC under 1000 euros is the proposal of Asus A17 TUF706IU-H7325T. With power as the first argument, the PC is aimed at all users looking for answers thanks to the AMD Ryzen 5 4600H Renoir 6-core processor, a powerful CPU capable of the best in productivity and creation but also to support the game. of them, the last gamers will find in the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti and in the 120Hz FreeSync screen a quality support to play. These key components are supported by 1.2TB hybrid storage (256GB SSD) and 8GB RAM for system speed and complemented by amenities like the multicolored backlit keyboard or component access. ease.

Chassis, connectors, screen of the Asus TUF Gaming A17 TUF706IU-H7325T
Asus is giving its TUF line a little facelift, which broadly retains the aesthetic achievements of the TUF705 / TUF765 from last year. This design between sobriety and intimidation updates a structured shell with steep angles and a few touches of color (lighting). Inside, the difference between the two models is not striking with the same geometric design dividing a brushed effect and a smooth effect on the sides of the keyboard, but the cover inherits on this reference a new smooth aluminum gray color. . The frame is made from polycarbonate with the localized use of metallic finish metal on the back of the cover.
In this regard, Asus has developed its TUF line by taking robustness and durability as a common thread. The Asus Gaming A17 706IU-H7325T thus meets the military standard MIL-STD-810G for foolproof strength (extreme heat, shock, drop, humidity, altitude, exposure to the sun). The keyboard has been reworked with this in mind, with an estimated lifespan of 20 million keystrokes for each key. It sports a multi-colored backlight with the ZQSD keys underlined.
Let’s talk about measurements now. A slight compaction is visible at the reduced depth of 11 mm compared to its predecessor, thanks to advanced work on the screen borders. The weight loses 100 grams with 2.6 kg on the scale.
The screen is applied to a 17.3-inch bright Full HD IPS matte panel with 120Hz refreshment, enough to enjoy a lively rendering in action. Following the trend, he opts for an immersive edge-to-edge side design, a feeling amplified by the IPS panel and its wide viewing angles. In addition, the Full HD definition (1920 x 1080 px) is the most suitable for gamers and allows you to get the best out of your High Definition content while the anti-reflective treatment prevents ambient light from being reflected on the screen, improving playing comfort (especially in dark scenes).
The connection is also getting an update, and that’s not a luxury. We highlight in particular the (expected) arrival of a USB Type-C Gen1 port in the TUF series, added to the two USB 3.2 ports and the USB 2.0 port, which is still present. An HDMI 2.0 output, a Gigabit Ethernet port, a headphone jack complete the selection mainly gathered on the left side of the PC. The SD card reader is still not on the program with the Wifi module remaining confined to the 802.11 AC standard and not the most recent 802.11 AX (Wifi 6).
Performance, battery life of the Asus A17 TUF706IU-H7325T
To serve the game, the Turing GeForce GTX 1660 Ti Turing graphics card is of a good standard to cater for almost all gamers, even a fairly demanding few who are going to seek the high framerate rate. While it only supports ray-tracing to a small extent, its performance traps the high-end GeForce RTX 2060 in most scenarios. In fact, it is notably able to compete with intensive players and ensure optimal frequencies in 1080p High on all AAA games with a total FPS that exceeds 70. Support for creatives is also precious with its 6 Go VRAM GDDR6.
The TUF706IU-H7325T also houses an AMD Ryzen 5 4600H Hexa Core Renoir (2020) processor . Its performances are talking about them since the processor delivers enough to satisfy the most demanding among you with capacities similar to those of an Intel Core i7-10750H. In fact, tasks capable of using the 6 cores, such as certain content creation, 3D modeling or video editing software, will find good working support here. Opposite, we have 8 GB of RAM in support, the minimum now to enjoy a little comfort in multitasking.
Storage is another defining element within this configuration since it offers all the space you may need, while ensuring system responsiveness. On the one hand, the dedicated 256 GB SSD (NVMe PCIe) is responsible for accommodating the operating system and all programs and games and contributing to a more responsive execution, shortened loading times and an overall more lively environment. On the other hand, the 1TB hard drive (5400 rpm) will provide a large capacity and allow a large amount of data to be archived in addition.
Finally, Asus has equipped this TUF706IU-H7325T with a limited capacity battery (48Whr), which should reduce the battery life to a maximum of 5 hours when browsing the Internet with active Wifi.
