One of the more reasonably priced 17-inch gaming laptops on the market, the ASUS TUF FX705DU-AU024T comes equipped with the latest Ryzen R7-3750H processor and an Nvidia GTX 1660TI 6GB graphics card for optimal gaming performance.
With enough real estate and bright enough of a screen to let you enjoy every crisp detail of your favourite games, as well as a less-obnoxious design that does away with the ugly red lighting bolts of previous laptops, you will be enjoying esports and modern games at reasonable settings without garnering too many skeptical and judgemental looks while playing on the ASUS TUF FX705DU-AU024T.
Processor: AMD Ryzen R7-3750H
Memory: 8GB of DDR4 RAM
Graphics Card: Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660Ti 6GB
Storage: 512GB PCI-e SSD
Display: 17.3-inch Nano-Edge IPS Level Screen
– Crisp and clear 17.3-inch Nano-Edge IPS level display for maximum clarity and eye candy.
– The Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660Ti 6GB gives the ASUS TUF FX705DU-AU024T above-average performance when playing modern titles, capable of capping at 40-60 FPS on medium-high settings.
– 512GB PCI-e SSD means more storage, as well as lower loading times and faster performance compared to SATA SSD storage devices.
– Comfortable, well-spaced and beautifully-designed RGB-backlit keyboard with solid feedback when pressed that make them feel sturdy enough that they will last you for a long time without being too hard that you feel like you are typing on a brick.
– Large, fast, and responsive touchpad that makes not having a mouse with you inconsequential.
– The AMD Ryzen R7-3750H only has 4 cores and 8 threads, giving it a lower thread and core count, as well as weaker processing power compared to its main competition, the Intel Core i5-9750H.
– Out of the box, the 8GB DDR4 RAM may struggle to run modern AAA video game titles, many of which require at least 12GB of DDR4 RAM for optimal performance.
– Speaker and webcam performance are extremely disappointing.
– 60Hz display means that this is not the gaming laptop you would want to buy if you are into esports titles.
If you want a large, midrange gaming laptop that’s competitively priced with a crisp and clear display, it’s hard to get any better than the ASUS TUF FX705DU-AU024T.
Perhaps the biggest deal breaker is the 60Hz screen.
But, if you don’t mind not squeezing every frame out of esports titles, and can live with the poor webcam and speaker performance, the ASUS TUF FX705DU-AU024T is an excellent all-around performer that won’t break the bank.
