Two hot Windows 10 gaming laptops are now taking orders, with these being the Asus TUF Gaming A17 and Asus TUF Gaming A15. The 15.6-inch laptop has launched already, while the 17.3-inch laptop will launch on April 10, starting from $999.
Both of these new Windows 10 gaming laptops were unveiled at CES 2020, and caught the attention with the 4.2 GHz AMD Ryzen 7 4800H processor and acceptable price tag.
I’ve seen these new Windows laptops pushed to achieve Geekbench 4 benchmark scores of 31,000 in multi-core, so they have a lot of potential, and will be of interest to anyone wanting a fast Windows 10 laptop, especially with its enhanced multi-screen support.
In addition to the Ryzen 7 CPU, they’re both equipped with a Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Ti 6GB GPU with ROG Boost, in addition to 16GB DDR4 RAM at 3200 MHz, and 512GB / 1TB PCIe NVMe SSD storage.
Both screens feature Full HD displays with 1920 x 1080 resolution, with 144 Hz for the 15-inch TUF506IU-ES74, and 120 Hz for the TUF706IU-AS76 model.
But there are many other highlights too of course since a Windows 10 computer in this category has to be fast in many ways, with an RJ45 port, HDMI 2.0b port, 2x USB A 3.2 gen. 1, 1x USB C 3.2 gen. 2 DP 1.4, 1x USB 2.0 gen. 1, and Gigabit Wave 2.
You shouldn’t have to vacuum clean these laptops either, as they’e got self cleaning dual fans. Other specs worth mentioning includes MIL-STD-810H drop rating, a large battery, and DTS X virtual surround sound.
