A versatile multimedia laptop designed to play and create, the Asus TUF Gaming F17 TUF766HEB-HX153T with 17-inch IPS Full HD anti-glare display that improves fluidity in games with its 144Hz frequency benefits from fast SSD storage that enhances its responsiveness, a backlit keyboard and connectivity with Wi-Fi ax and USB-C. This creator-oriented gaming laptop is powerful thanks to its Intel Octo Core i7 Tiger Lake-H processor and its 16 GB of RAM that accelerate processing like the NVIDIA Ampere GeForce RTX 3050 Ti ray tracing graphics card capable of supporting a maximum of games.

Chassis, connectors, screen of the Asus TUF Gaming F17 TUF766HEB-HX153T
Robust with its compliance with the MIL-STD-810G military resistance standard, this laptop sports a gamer look with its dark design with angular lines.
Its cooling is provided by 2 n-Blade fans (liquid crystal polymer, 83 pale), 5 heat pipes and 4 air outlets.
This creator-oriented gaming laptop is also equipped with a good connectivity composed of 1 USB-C, Bluetooth 5.2 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.
A backlight system equips of course the chiclet keyboard which is convenient to better discern its keys in the dim light.
Thanks to its IPS technology, the screen has significant viewing angles, both horizontal and vertical. But its colorimetry is average, below that of high-end IPS panels. Thanks to its 144Hz frequency, the screen also improves fluidity in games compared to the standard 60Hz. In addition, it lends itself very well to the display of videos and more broadly of High Definition content because it adopts a 16/9th format associated with a Full HD definition. Treated anti-reflective, the screen also offers better visibility in bright environments than a shiny slab while being more restful for the eyes in prolonged use.
Performance, battery life of the Asus TUF Gaming F17 TUF766HEB-HX153T
The Asus TUF Gaming F17 TUF766HEB-HX153T is aimed at those who are looking for a versatile laptop of large format powerful in creation and game oriented.
The overall power provided by this laptop designed to create and play is able to satisfy demanding users because it relies on a Tiger Lake-H Intel Octo Core i7-11800H processor combined with 16 GB of RAM coupled around an Intel HM570 chipset.
This core guarantees much faster processing than a Quad/Hexa Core processor and 8 GB DDR4. We particularly feel the difference in CPU and RAM resource-intensive areas using multi-core, such as video editing, photo editing or 3D rendering.
Creators will be all the more seduced by this laptop as it embeds the GeForce RTX 3050 Ti. Because this dedicated NVIDIA Ampere graphics card accelerates processing under software that takes advantage of GPU computing power, such as Adobe Photoshop/Premiere and Sony Vegas.
In addition, the GeForce RTX 3050 Ti ray tracing is able to run a maximum of games for concessions under titles demanding graphics resources to get a good gameplay, enough to interest players.
GeForce RTX 3050 Ti ray tracing is automatically turned on/off in real time by NVIDIA Optimus technology, depending on the tasks performed.
Optimus prefers the Iris Xe, a graphics solution housed in the Octo Core i7 Tiger Lake-H. Certainly, the Iris Xe allows you to watch photos and videos as well as run games that are not too greedy in 3D resources. But the Iris Xe is significantly less powerful than the GeForce RTX 3050 Ti. If it is preferred by Optimus, it is because of its significantly lower energy consumption promoting autonomy.
On the autonomy side, bet on about 5 hours of operation on battery in light use for this creator-oriented gaming laptop.
In any case, the GeForce RTX 3050 Ti is activated by Optimus to perform graphics work deemed too heavy for the Iris Xe.
SSD storage significantly enhances its fluidity and responsiveness on a daily basis compared to a simple hard drive.
Because it is much faster while being more energy efficient, more resistant to shocks and silent.
In practice thanks to the SSD, for example, we reach the cards of online games faster than with a simple hard disk and we benefit from much faster game/ software launches, processing and starts/stops.
Here we find more precisely a 512 GB SSD, similar to what hard drives offer as standard. However, if you need more space, you can rely on an external storage unit. Favoring a USB 3.0/USB-C device is then an interesting option to obtain fast transfers.
Finally, this versatile creator and gamer laptop heats up of course and is heard when it is heavily solicited (eg treatments, games), but temperatures and noise are relatively controlled in common use.
