Chassis, connectors, screen of Asus TUF Gaming A15 TUF506IV-HN251T
Robust with its black chassis with angular lines conforming to the American military resistance standard MIL-STD-810G, it sports a robust gamer look.
Asus has made the RAM and storage easily accessible.
The HyperCool technology (adjustable via the Fan Overboost function) takes care of cooling it via 2 fans, 2 heat pipes and Anti-Dust Cooling technology to limit dust as well as ventilation grilles.
Connectivity side, this computer targeting players is well equipped with its USB 3.1 Type-C (absent from previous generations of Asus TUF), its Bluetooth 5 wireless modules and Wi-Fi ac to communicate and connect remotely, its Convenient HDMI video output for easy connection to a TV or monitor, for example, its Ethernet and audio ports as well as its 3 USBs that are compatible with both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0, the USB 3.0 ensuring transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if you connect USB 3.0 devices to it.
Too bad, however, that Wi-Fi is not up to the standard of Wi-Fi ax newer and efficient.
A backlight system for the chiclet keyboard keys, of the customizable RGB type, is of course integrated, which is practical for discerning them in the dark.
The screen reinforces the fluidity in games thanks to its frequency of 144Hz higher than the standard 60Hz. It also lends itself very well to the display of High Definition content and in particular videos due to its precise Full HD definition and its 16: 9 format. With its IPS technology, the screen has significant horizontal and vertical viewing angles while its colorimetry is medium, lower than that of more high-end IPS panels. Anti-reflective, the screen also offers better visibility in a bright environment (eg outside) than a shiny screen.
Performance, autonomy of the Asus TUF Gaming A15 TUF506IV-HN251T
The Asus TUF Gaming A15 TUF506IV-HN251T may be of interest to those who wish to acquire a versatile 15-inch laptop performing in games and creative oriented.
It is distinguished by its total storage capacity of 1.2 TB thanks to a hybrid system. It combines a fast 256 GB SSD designed to house the main games / software in addition to the system with a comfortable 1000 GB hard drive to store and install bonus multiple files and software.
The SSD guarantees a much better fluidity and reactivity than a simple daily hard drive. Thanks to it, we benefit in particular from much faster starts / stops, processing and launching of games / software, but also from a faster arrival on the online game cards.
Players will be delighted to be able to indulge in recent games because the high-end dedicated graphics card NVIDIA Turing GeForce RTX 2060 with ray tracing is on board.
NVIDIA Optimus technology is in the game although this laptop is equipped with an AMD processor and not Intel. As a result, a switch is made automatically and in real time as needed between the GeForce RTX 2060 and the Radeon Vega 7 solution housed within the processor.
The Vega 7 is favored as much as possible by Optimus in practice, although its performance is significantly higher than that of the Intel UHD 630, that is to say at the level of an entry-level GPU, because it is low energy and therefore promotes autonomy. Table on the subject about 5 hours of battery operation in light use.
The GeForce RTX 2060 is therefore activated by Optimus to perform graphics work deemed too heavy for the Vega 7, for example in games. Of course, both allow you to view photos and videos.
Within this computer targeting players sits a good amount of 16 GB of RAM coupled to an AMD APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) processor Renoir Ryzen 7 4800H Octo Core.
This duo goes well with the GeForce RTX 2060 in games and delivers overall power capable of satisfying demanding users, including creators.
They will be delighted to obtain much faster processing with these components than with 8 GB DDR4 and a Quad Core processor, particularly in areas that consume RAM and CPU resources using the multicore architecture, such as video editing, photo editing or 3D rendering.
Multimedia processing is all the more accelerated when using software that takes advantage of GPU computing power, thanks to the on-board GeForce RTX 2060. This is for example the case with Adobe Premiere / Photoshop or Sony Vegas.
