Chassis, Connectivity, Display of Asus TUF 565GE-AL365
With its black brushed metal finish and angular lines, it sports an original gamer look with touches of yellow instead of the traditional red.
HyperCool technology provides cooling, coupling two fans to a heat pipe system. It is adjustable via the Fan Overboost function.
Side connection, it’s ok. There is a convenient HDMI video output to easily connect this PC gamer to a TV or monitor for example, wireless Bluetooth 4.1 and Wi-Fi ac modules, Ethernet and audio ports as well as 3 USB compatible both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0, USB 3.0 providing transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 devices are connected. USB 3.1 Type-C point, however, which will undoubtedly disappoint some.
Many people will appreciate in any case to be able to backlight the keys of the keyboard chiclet to distinguish them when the ambient light is low.
The screen will seduce the players with its frequency of 120Hz which enhances the fluidity in games compared to the standard 60Hz. IPS, the screen reproduces the colors more faithfully than average and provides important viewing angles, both horizontal and vertical. Full HD, the screen is accurate and also lends itself very well to the display of High Definition content including videos in its 16 / 9th format. Anti-reflective, the screen is more legible than a bright slab in bright environment.
Performance, autonomy of Asus TUF 565GE-AL365
The Asus TUF 565GE-AL365 is a versatile, 15-inch, game-oriented, high-performance notebook that offers a choice of operating system.
It stands out for its SSD storage much faster than a hard drive while being less energy, more robust and quiet. In addition here – and it is still too rare and deserves to be emphasized – the SSD competes with hard drives in terms of capacity thanks to its 512 GB.
The presence of the SSD in practice guarantees a much more responsive and fluid operation than a hard disk. The startups and launches of software / games are notably faster. Good point, those who would like to enjoy a larger total capacity can add a second SSD or a hard drive thanks to the 2.5 inch free slot.
Another element distinguishing this laptop: the absence of installed system. But to fully exploit its capabilities, it will gain to endow it with a complete OS, such as a Linux or Windows distribution.
For example, we can take advantage of NVIDIA Optimus technology that evaluates graphical needs in real time according to the tasks requested by the user. When needed, Optimus switches automatically and in real time between the processor-integrated Intel UHD 630 and the dedicated GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 4GB dedicated card.
Optimus favors the Intel UHD 620 as much as possible despite its modest performance because it is energy efficient and promotes autonomy compared to the greedy and powerful GeForce GTX 1050 Ti.
The GeForce GTX 1050 Ti is able to support the favorite games of the user as long as he consents to adaptations under the most demanding titles in graphics resources to obtain good playability. Whether with the Intel UHD 620 or the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti, it is of course possible to view photos and videos.
The heart of this computer gamer shoulder well the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti in games. It includes a Quad Core i5-8300H Coffee Lake processor associated with 8 GB of RAM. This laptop thus delivers strong overall performance to fill a maximum of users.
We thus benefit from daily operation faster than a Quad Core processor low power and 4 GB DDR4, including processing performed much faster under the hard work in CPU and RAM resources exploiting multicore architecture as retouching photo, 3D rendering or video editing.
As for autonomy, plan about 4 hours of battery operation in light use.
