Chassis, connectors, screen of the Asus TUF Gaming F15 TUF506LH-HN142T
With its black Bonfire Black design with angular lines meeting the American military resistance standard MIL-STD-810, it sports a robust gamer allure.
HyperCool technology (adjustable via the Fan Overboost function) takes care of cooling it via 2 fans, 2 heat pipes but also Anti-Dust Cooling technology which limits dust.
The connectivity integrated into this creator-oriented gamer laptop PC is good, including 1 USB-C, a useful HDMI video output in order to easily connect this computer to a TV or a monitor for example, Wi-Fi ax wireless modules ( more recent and powerful than Wi-Fi ac ) and Bluetooth 5 for remote connections and communications, Ethernet and audio ports but also 3 USB compatible with both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0, the USB 3.0 guaranteeing transfers up to ‘at 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if you plug USB 3.0 devices into it.
To better distinguish the keys in a dimly lit environment, the chiclet keyboard is adorned with a welcome backlighting system.
The screen particularly targets gamers because it adopts a refresh rate of 144Hz which improves fluidity in games compared to the standard 60Hz. The screen is also very suitable for displaying High Definition content such as videos due to its precise Full HD definition and its 16: 9 format. Anti-reflective coating, the screen also provides better visibility in a bright environment (eg outdoors) than a shiny panel. Thanks to its IPS technology, the screen also has comfortable viewing angles, both horizontally and vertically. However, its colorimetry is average, below that of more high-end IPS panels.
Performance, battery life of the Asus TUF Gaming F15 TUF506LH-HN142T
The Asus TUF Gaming F15 TUF506LH-HN142T is a versatile 15-inch laptop PC with a gaming and creative focus.
As for graphics processing, we are dealing with the Intel UHD 630 solution integrated into the processor and the dedicated GeForce GTX 1650 card. The on-board NVIDIA Optimus technology switches automatically and in real time between the two as needed.
Optimus favors as much as possible the Intel UHD 630 despite its modest benefits because it is energy efficient and thus promotes battery life compared to the GeForce GTX 1650 which is certainly more greedy but in return more powerful.
The GeForce GTX 1650 is activated by Optimus to perform graphics processing deemed too heavy for the Intel UHD 630. Thanks to the NVIDIA Turing GeForce GTX 1650, you can run many games on this thin and light PC as long as the we agree to adjustments under the opuses greedy in graphic resources to obtain a good playability.
Obviously, whether with the integrated Intel UHD 630 or the GeForce GTX 1650, you can watch photos and videos.
The Intel UHD 630 is housed within the Intel Quad Core i5-10300H Comet Lake-H processor coupled here with 8 GB of RAM. This gives solid overall performance suitable for a maximum of users.
The Core i5-10300H notably guarantees much faster processing than a low-consumption Quad Core processor, especially under work requiring CPU resources, which is the case for example in photo editing, video editing or 3D rendering.
In addition to supporting a number of games, the GeForce GTX 1650 has the ability to speed up processing under software using GPU computing power, such as Sony Vegas or Adobe Premiere / Photoshop.
SSD storage is more resistant to shocks than a hard drive, more energy efficient, silent and much faster.
As a result, the SSD guarantees much better fluidity and responsiveness than a hard drive for games, processing and more generally on a daily basis. Thus, we benefit from much faster starts / stops, treatments and launches of software / games, or even a faster arrival on the cards of online games.
Here we are dealing with a 512 GB SSD, a capacity conforming to the standard of hard disks. But if you need more space, you can use an external storage device such as a USB-C / USB 3.0 device for fast transfers.
