OPTICXCESS – ASUS Introduces New TUF Gaming Laptop with AMD Ryzen 4000 Series
At the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2020 yesterday, ASUS has introduced several new laptops with improvements in performance and usability to refresh the ASUS TUF Gaming line.
The two of the laptops that were also introduced by ASUS were ASUS TUF Gaming A15 and TUF Gaming A17 which were recorded as relying on AMD’s new APU from the Ryzen 4000 line.
Based on the press release we received, the processor line with AMD Zen 2 architecture can provide power efficiency that is two times better than its predecessor and the ability is more than just playing games.
The Ryzen 4000 line has eight cores and sixteen threads which are claimed to provide the perfect multithread capability to handle multiple heavy tasks in parallel at the same time.
Especially in compensating for this already strong base, ASUS also added two DDR4 RAM slots that can be expanded up to 32 GB and two M.2 slots to add SSDs to it.
ASUS also revealed that TUF Gaming A15 and TUF Gaming A17 already rely on a separate NVIDIA GeForce GPU built on the latest NVIDIA Turing architecture.
With a maximum configuration of up to NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060, the new laptop in the TUF Gaming line can have hybrid rendering capabilities with real Ray Tracing and accelerate the artificial intelligence system.
The graphics capabilities of these laptops can also be maximized with the AMD Radeon graphics that are fundamentally integrated with the Ryzen 4000 processors.
In particular, the AMD Radeon in the Ryzen 4000 has an adaptive refresh-rate synchronization technology that enables better synchronization between the screen’s refresh rate capability and the system.
More simply, users can play games or run applications on TUF Gaming A15 and TUF Gaming A17 smoothly even though FPS often changes with time.
TUF Gaming A15 and TUF Gaming A17 itself have different screens in this regard. TUF Gaming A15 has a 15 inch IPS screen with a refresh rate of up to 144 Hz while TUF Gaming A17 has a 17 inch IPS screen with a refresh rate of up to 120 Hz.
However, they both offer Ultraslim NanoEdge bezel designs that can make the screen have a thinner bezel so that the device can be more sleek and portable.
TUF Gaming A15 and TUF Gaming A17 are also equipped with a 90Wh battery which is claimed to be able to use up to 8.7 hours to surf the browser or 12.3 hours to play videos.
Both devices are also packed with MIL-STD-810H certificates which show that this device can withstand shocks, fall from low places, to extreme temperatures and humidity.
In addition to introducing TUF Gaming A15 and TUF Gaming A17, ASUS also introduced TUF Gaming F15 and TUF Gaming F17 which unfortunately both devices are still under development and will only be launched at the end of 2020.
Different from TUF Gaming A15 and TUF Gaming A17 that use AMD APUs and still rely on Wi-Fi 5, both will come with processors from the tenth generation Intel Core line and support Wi-Fi 6 (Gig +).
