Chassis, connectors, screen of the Asus TUF Gaming A15 TUF506QR-HN054T
It has a gamer look, taking up the codes of the genre with its black color and angular lines, but also elegant and original with its brushed metal finish and its Bonfire Black frame.
This gaming laptop PC is intended to be robust with its compliance with the military resistance standard MIL-STD-810H. In addition, access to storage and RAM is facilitated.
It is cooled by 2 fans, 3 heat pipes and ventilation grilles.
The connectivity built into this gaming laptop PC is good, made up of 1 USB-C, Bluetooth 5.0 and Wi-Fi ax modules ( newer and more efficient than Wi-Fi ac ) to communicate and connect wirelessly. , a practical HDMI video output to easily connect this computer to a TV and / or a monitor for example, Ethernet and audio ports but also 3 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) guaranteeing transfers made up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if a USB 3.0 device is plugged into it.
An RGB backlighting system is fitted to the chiclet keyboard, which is practical for discerning its keys in the dark.
The screen aims to seduce gamers with its frequency of 144Hz which improves fluidity in games compared to the 60Hz standard. If its viewing angles, both horizontal and vertical, are important thanks to its IPS technology, its colorimetry is however average, below that of more high-end IPS panels. As it is anti-reflective, the screen offers better visibility than a shiny panel in bright surroundings. It also lends itself very well to the display of High Definition content such as videos thanks to its precise Full HD definition and its 16: 9 format.
Performance, battery life of the Asus TUF Gaming A15 TUF506QR-HN054T
The Asus TUF Gaming A15 TUF506QR-HN054T can appeal to those who want to acquire a versatile 15-inch laptop PC powerful in gaming and creative oriented.
It embeds one of the most powerful mobile graphics cards of the moment, the high-end GeForce RTX 3070 NVIDIA Ampere with ray tracing.
As a result, with this gaming laptop, you can play recent and greedy titles at a good level of detail.
The GeForce RTX 3070 also has the advantage of speeding up processing under software using GPU computing power, such as Adobe Photoshop / Premiere or Sony Vegas, which will be of interest to creatives.
On-board NVIDIA Optimus technology activates the GeForce RTX 3070 when the performance of the AMD Radeon Vega 8 solution housed within the processor is insufficient to perform the desired tasks.
More efficient than the UHD 630 of Intel processors, the Vega 8 is preferred as far as possible because it is energy efficient which promotes battery life.
The GeForce RTX 3070 is therefore activated to perform graphics work deemed too heavy for the Vega 8, for example to play. With either of these graphics solutions, you can obviously watch photos and videos.
The Vega 8 is more precisely housed within the AMD APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) Ryzen 7 4800H Octo Core Renoir processor, coupled here with a good amount of 16 GB RAM.
This duo delivers an overall power capable of seducing users demanding, whether they are players or creators.
The latter will particularly appreciate obtaining much faster processing than with a Quad / Hexa Core processor and 8 GB DDR4, particularly in areas that are greedy in CPU and RAM resources using the multicore architecture, such as video editing, photo editing or 3d rendering.
The on-board SSD storage clearly enhances responsiveness in games, under processing and more generally on a daily basis compared to a simple hard drive.
An SSD is indeed much faster than a hard drive but also more robust, less energy-consuming and silent.
Thanks to the SSD, for example, we get faster on the cards of online games than with a simple hard drive and we benefit, for example, from games / software launches, processing and starting / stopping much faster.
However, with its 512 GB, the SSD offers a capacity similar to the standard of hard drives, which may be too tight for some. But if you need more, you can add a second SSD via the free M.2 slot. You can also rely on an external storage unit. Favoring a USB-C / USB 3.0 device then represents an interesting option for obtaining fast transfers.
Finally on the battery life side, bet on about 7 hours of battery operation in light use for this designer-oriented gamer laptop which should be expected to be heard and heats up when strongly pushed (ex: games, treatments)
