Asus TUF Gaming A15 hands-on review: AMD meets Nvidia
Source: Laptop Mag English
The TUF Gaming A15 is an interesting laptop that gamers on a budget should keep an eye out for. It has a 15.6-inch display with a fast refresh rate and AMD FreeSync technology so action should look smooth.

Overall, even if the updated TUF FA506/FX506 address some of my complaints about the previous generations, like battery life, audio and screen quality, they still remain primarily value gaming notebooks and aim to primarily provide excellent performance for the money.

Source: Tech Advisor English
The Asus TUF Gaming A15 looks bold, and it’s got solid Nvidia and AMD hardware alongside decent ergonomics, but potential component issues hinder it – and it suffers thanks to a poor screen and mediocre connectivity. It’s not bad, but there is plenty of strong competition.

TUF Gaming is supposed to be Asus' entry-level series, positioned below the ROG models. If you grab the most basic variant of the TUF Gaming A15, at the starting price of Rs. 60,990, you'll have a decent enough experience. We do think that most people will come to this series looking for the most affordable gaming laptop they can buy.

80% Asus TUF Gaming A15 review: Solid performance in a durable package
Source: India Today English
After spending almost two weeks with the Asus TUF Gaming A15, I am left impressed. For enthusiast gamers like me, the TUF A15 offers more than enough firepower to get the best out of my games and even do a fair amount of photo editing. There’s no compromise on performance here. The new Ryzen 7 4800H processor offers visible performance boosts over the older models and with the Nvidia GTX 1660Ti, you are assured of great graphics rendering, without the ray-tracing goodness.

84% Asus TUF Gaming A15 Review
Source: Think Digit English
There's been a lot of excitement around AMD's 4000-series processors and the Asus TUF Gaming A15 is the first gaming laptop to land in India with it. Our review finds the processor to be a beast of a performer, improving performance across a host of metrics but as much as 100 per cent. Our gameplay testing found the laptop to deliver very good frame rates and our Lightroom render times were reduced by half in comparison to everything we've tested in the mid-range gaming segment. The keyboard and trackpad on this machine are nice and the port selection is fairly generous, as is their left-side-heavy placement. Asus has used a generous amount of copper all throughout the insides to keep the temperatures well under control. Lastly, the Gaming A15 is also user upgradeable as far as storage and RAM are concerned, future-proofing the laptop to some extent, especially if you're getting yourself a lower-end model.

The ASUS TUF Gaming A15 comes at a great price point of S$1498 with a premium Ryzen 7 4800H processor and a dedicated NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 graphics card. We found this notebook to perform very well in usual compute tasks, but it failed to meet the mark in games. If ASUS was to introduce a GTX 1660Ti variant for the Singapore market instead, we would have a clear and firm recommendation for our readers. However, this time, we would only recommend the ASUS TUF Gaming A15 if you need the raw compute performance of the Ryzen 7 4800H and wouldn’t mind gaming at a lower graphics quality.

The Asus TUF Gaming A15 is a great gaming laptop for those on a budget. It has an excellent Full HD performance, decent display and ample storage for a very generous price. It is a rather ugly laptop though, while its loud fans can be annoying, but such flaws can be overlooked if you're unwilling to pay a few hundred quid more for classier alternatives.

ASUS TUF Gaming A15 Review: Ryzen Power With GeForce RTX Pop
Source: Hot Hardware English
Overall, ASUS delivered a superb system for the price. At $1200 or less for a machine this kind of horsepower, there are always cost-cutting measures that have to be considered, and ASUS mostly made the right decisions. All of the gaming essentials are still here: a wicked-fast CPU, plenty of graphical horsepower, a fast VRR display, and enough cooling to keep it from throttling. The RGB-backlit keyboard is a fun eye catcher, but overall the system wouldn't look out of place doing serious work either—especially with the light show turned off. Anybody who needs great gaming performance without breaking the bank should absolutely look into the ASUS TUF Gaming A15.

ASUS TUF Gaming A15 FA506IV Gaming Laptop Review
Source: Appuals English
ASUS TUF Gaming A15 surprised everyone with the launch of octa-core AMD processors. Even though there is not a lot of difference between this model and the previous model apart from CPU improvement, this alone makes the upgrade worthy and you should buy this laptop if you want a mid-range laptop that allows you to do 1080P gaming at high settings with a high-refresh-rate panel. The graphics card is refreshed, with slightly efficiency improvement, there is minimal improvement in performance. There are some other noticeable differences as well, such as a much larger battery, larger speakers, much better chassis and slightly better display.

If you’re shopping for a gaming notebook and don’t have thousands to spend for, this Asus TUF Gaming FA506 could well be the best bang for your buck in the months to come.

Yes, it still lacks certain bells and whistles, but it's well priced, performs spectacularly well for its class, and doesn’t majorly compromise on any important aspect.

ASUS TUF Gaming A15 review
Source: Techtesters English
Uiteraard is het even afwachten of de straatprijzen die beloftes waar gaan maken, ik wil in deze crisistijd niet helemaal op de zaken vooruit lopen natuurlijk en als de A15 opeens veel duurder wordt dan alternatieven met vergelijkbare specs verandert het spel. Maar de A15 belooft er zeker één te worden waar je echt scherp op wilt letten de komende weken. Dat je dan zelf dan maar WiFi 6 in moet schroeven (kosten: 2 tientjes voor een AX200 chip) moet je dan maar even door de vingers zien, concessies bij andere laptops in zijn prijsklasse waren tot dusver altijd groter.
Positive: Decent hardware; nice gaming performance; attractive price.

ASUS TUF A15 (FA506) (Ryzen 7 4800H + GTX 1650 Ti) review – reimagine the budget gaming laptop
Source: Laptop Media English
Well, there is no device on the market right now that has no downsides. Here, you won’t get a Thunderbolt certification (although the USB Type-C port supports 3.1 (Gen. 2) speeds and a DisplayPort 1.4 output), and there is no SD card reader on board. Yes, the laptop would get more expensive if it gets the former, and you can always snatch a deal on a USB to SD card reader dongle for no more than 5 bucks. However, it is good to have it onboard.

In the notebook sector, Asus had a global market share of about 11% from 2014-2016, making it the fourth largest laptop manufacturer. In the smartphone sector, Asus is not among the Top 5 and has only a small market share (as of 2016).


With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 Ti Mobile: Mid range dedicated graphics card for laptops based on the desktop GTX 1660 Ti and therefore the Turing architecture without raytracing and Tensor cores. The performance of the Max-P variant should be similar to an older GTX 1070.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 Mobile: Mid range to high end laptop graphics card based on the Turing architecture with raytracing features and 1,920 shaders. Compared to the similar named desktop card it offers reduced clock rates.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 Ti Mobile: Mid range dedicated graphics card for laptops that uses a Turing TU117 chip without raytracing and Tensor cores. Should be slightly faster than a GTX 1650, but is also available in different variants with a TGP ranging from 55 - 80 Watt (and two packages).

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 Mobile: Mid range dedicated graphics card for laptops based on the desktop GTX 1650 and therefore the Turing architecture (TU117 chip in 12nm FFN) without raytracing and Tensor cores. Available with 896 and 1024 shaders.
