Asus TUF Dash F15 TUF516PM-HN112 Specs and Details

Ultrabook gamer oriented nomadic creator with its autonomy of 9 hours, the Asus TUF Dash F15 TUF516PM-HN112 is able to run recent games thanks to its high-end NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 ray tracing Ampere graphics card that also accelerates multimedia processing. This thin and light laptop designed to play and create relies on an Intel Tiger Lake-H Quad Core i7 processor for solid performance as well as fast SSD storage that boosts its responsiveness while offering the choice of operating system because it does not come with Windows. This versatile black laptop targeting gamers and creatives also benefits from a 15-inch IPS Full HD anti-glare screen whose frequency of 144Hz improves fluidity in gaming, a backlit keyboard or connectivity with USB-C Thunderbolt 4 and Wi-Fi ax, but it is devoid of webcam and numeric keypad.

Robust due to its compliance with the MIL-STD-810G military resistance standard, this Ultrabook has a discreet look for a gaming laptop whose main codes it adopts with its dark design with angular lines.

It offers easy access to storage as well as RAM and is cooled by 2 n-Blade fans (liquid crystal polymer, 83 blades), 5 heat pipes and 4 air outlets.

Note however the absence of a webcam and it will therefore be necessary to turn to an external webcam to benefit from this feature.

In addition, to exploit the full power of this multimedia laptop, it is necessary to install a complete system such as a Linux or Windows distribution.

In particular, we will be able to take advantage of NVIDIA Optimus technology, which determines in real time the graphics needs according to the tasks performed by the user. When necessary, Optimus automatically switches in real time between the Intel Iris Xe graphics solution integrated into the processor and the dedicated board.

The Iris Xe is preferred as much as possible by Optimus despite its modest performance because its low energy consumption promotes autonomy compared to the second more greedy and powerful. With one or the other, you can
look at photos The integrated connectivity will satisfy a maximum of users because it consists of 1 USB 4 Type-C Thunderbolt 4, Bluetooth 5.0 and Wi-Fi ax modules(newer and more powerful than Wi-Fi ac)to communicate and connect remotely wirelessly, a convenient HDMI video output to easily connect it to a TV and / or monitor for example, Ethernet and audio ports or 3 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) guaranteeing transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if you plug in a USB 3.0 device.

Numeric keypad point on the right of the chiclet keyboard while its presence is standard in 15 inches. Asus could have compensated by offering its NumberPad technology (NumPad) to convert the touchpad into a touchpad when needed to facilitate the entry of numbers.
Fortunately, you can still backlight the keys of the chiclet keyboard to better distinguish them in case of limited ambient light.

Gamers will particularly appreciate the screen as it improves fluidity in games thanks to its 144Hz frequency higher than the standard 60Hz. As it adopts a 16/9th format associated with a Full HD definition, the screen lends itself well to the display of videos and especially High Definition content. In addition, as it adopts IPS technology, the screen has significant viewing angles, both horizontal and vertical. Its colorimetry is however average, lower than that of more high-end IPS panels. In any case as it is treated anti-reflective, the screen is also more readable than a shiny slab in bright environments (eg outside).

Performance, battery life of the Asus TUF Dash F15 TUF516PM-HN112

The Asus TUF Dash F15 TUF516PM-HN112 is a versatile 15-inch high-performance and mobile laptop focused on gaming and creation.

As it embeds the GeForce RTX 3060 ray tracing, dedicated nvidia Ampere graphics card high-end, it is able to run recent games.

Creatives will also appreciate the GeForce RTX 3060 because it speeds up processing under GPU computing power software, such as Sony Vegas or Adobe Photoshop/Premiere.

The heart of this creator-oriented gaming laptop supports the GeForce RTX 3060 and delivers solid overall performance that can suit many users. It is based on 8 GB of RAM and an Intel Tiger Lake-H Quad Core i7-11370H processor.

The latter guarantees faster processing than a low-power Quad Core in CPU-intensive areas taking advantage of multi-core, such
as photo editing, video editing or 3D rendering. Good point, a RAM slot is available to add a strip and thus be more comfortable in the matter if necessary.

On the storage side, there is an SSD that significantly enhances fluidity and responsiveness on a daily basis compared to a simple hard disk. This implies, for example, a faster arrival on the cards of online games or much faster game/software launches, processing and starts/stops.

An SSD offers several advantages compared to a hard disk: greater velocity, silence of operation, lower power consumption and greater robustness.

With its 512 GB, the SSD here embedded offers a capacity corresponding to the standard among hard drives. What if that turns out to be too fair? At that time, a second SSD can be added via the free M.2 slot. But also to use an external storage unit. Opting for a USB-C/Thunderbolt/USB 3.0 device is then an interesting solution to get fast transfers.

As for the autonomy, count on about 9 hours of operation on battery in light use (with Optimus, at least 2 times less without) for this versatile computer designed to play and create whose transport is facilitated by the finesse and the weight contained. Due to its finesse and the integrated high-performance components, this laptop is noisy and heats up in case of heavy loads (eg games, treatments).
