With processor power as the primary argument, the Asus TUF Gaming A17 TUF706II-H7075T is a 17-inch gamer full of promise. It contains the AMD Ryzen 7 4800H Renoir Octo Core, a small power bomb capable of propelling the TUF towards advanced versatile spheres and intended for creatives as well as players. These will find in the GeForce GTX 1650 Ti and the 120Hz FreeSync screen quality support. These key components are assisted by a 512 GB SSD storage and 16 GB of RAM for the speed of the system and supplemented with amenities such as the multicolored backlit keyboard or easy access to the components but expect to see the temperatures and noise rise at stake, but not only …

Chassis, connectors, screen of the Asus TUF Gaming A17 TUF706II-H7075T
Asus is giving a little facelift to its TUF line, 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 from a new smooth alu gray color . The chassis is made of polycarbonate with localized use of metal, metallic finish on the back of the cover.
In this regard, Asus has developed its TUF line, taking robustness and durability as its common thread. The Asus Gaming A17 706II-H7075T thus meets the military standard MIL-STD-810G for solidity to any test (extreme heat, shock, fall, humidity, altitude, exposure to the sun). The keyboard has been reworked for the same purpose with an estimated life of 20 million keystrokes for each key. It sports a multicolored backlight with the underlined ZQSD keys.
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 slab full HD Full IPS matte at 120Hz refresh, enough to enjoy a vivid rendering in action. Following the trend, he opted for an immersive side-to-edge side design, a feeling amplified by the IPS panel and its wide viewing angles. In addition, Full HD definition (1920 x 1080 px) is the most suitable for players and allows you to get the best from your High Definition content while the anti-reflection treatment prevents ambient light from being reflected on the screen, improving playing comfort (especially in dark scenes).
The connectors also receive an update, and it\’s not luxury. We note 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, 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 remains confined to the 802.11 AC standard and not the most recent 802.11 AX (Wifi 6).
Performance, battery life of the Asus TUF Gaming A17 TUF706II-H7075T
The engine of this Asus A17 706II-H7075T is none other than an AMD Ryzen 7 4800H Octo Core Renoir (2020). It deploys something to satisfy the most demanding of you with capacities close to those of an Intel Core i9-9880H Octo Core and in any case much higher than those of an Intel Hexa Core (i7- 9750H / i7-10750H). In fact, tasks capable of exploiting the 8 cores like certain software for creating content, 3D modeling or video editing, will find the perfect working support here. The processor is assisted by a good amount of RAM (16 GB) , it is ideal for surfing and playing smoothly and welcome to approach the coming years serenely.
Note that the maintenance of the TUF is facilitated by screws compatible with a standard screwdriver and the addition of a “pop-up” screw which helps to lift the plate under the PC. You thus have access to the two RAM slots and the storage (1 M.2 and 1 free 2.5 inch bay) to modify the configuration to your liking.
Note that the processor power is felt directly in the internal temperature which increases significantly on this model. In fact, expect the cooling system to be heard and therefore a fairly high level of noise pollution.
To serve the game, the Turing GeForce GTX 1650 Ti Turing graphics card is of a good standard to meet almost all players, except the most demanding who will seek the highest rate of framerates. Namely that it only supports Ray-Tracing in small proportions but is quite capable of measuring itself against intensive players and ensuring optimal frequencies in 1080p High on all AAA games with a total of FPS which exceeds 60. Support for creatives is also precious with its 6 GB VRAM GDDR6.
Storage is basic in this portable PC since it is entrusted to a 512 GB NVMe PCIe SSD which will significantly reinforce the overall reactivity of the system on a daily basis. Overall quieter, more robust and energy efficient than a mechanical disk, it allows Windows to reach a remarkable level of fluidity with short loading times and execution without latencies. What is more, its capacity is not ridiculous and can accommodate a good part of your toy library even if some will not find it sufficient.
Finally, Asus has equipped this TUF706II-H7075T with a battery of limited capacity (48Whr), which should reduce the autonomy to 5 hours maximum in Internet browsing with active Wifi.
