ASUS TUF A17 (FA706) review – a Ryzen 7 4800H at this price?
Source: Laptop Media English
Although the TUF A17 is pretty much an ordinary 17-inch gaming laptop, it has two very convincing selling points. The first one is the price. There is no other 17-incher at this price (currently) that has an 8-core processor and a GTX 1660 Ti. Period. The price/performance ratio here is on point. And speaking of performance… All hail the new CPU king. This processor is marginally faster even than the Core i9-9900K, placed inside of the Alienware Area-51m. Yep, a mobile processor comfortably beats a desktop one, having the same core count.

Source: Ultrabook Review English
Much like it's A15 15-inch sibling, the larger Asus TUF Gaming A17 is a solid performance laptop in the budget-tier segments. Our review model excels in productivity and CPU-demanding loads, thanks to the competent AMD Ryzen 4000 hardware, and is also a fair gamer even on this Nvidia GTX 1650Ti configuration, which add up to its other traits, such as the nice and ergonomic build, the RGB keyboard and the complete IO. The small battery and rather dim and washed out screen might be enough to steer your towards a more premium product though, or even towards the more competitively priced A15 version.

Asus has completely revamped its TUF series from top to bottom and the changes are significant. If you were considering the older FX705/FX505 series, skip it and consider the newer FA706/FA506 series instead.

Source: Laptop Media English
Once again, if the price is your main concern, chances are low that you can get something better for less money. However, let’s not forget that this is just the beginning, and a lot of RTX 3000 laptops are going to hit the market in the following weeks and months. Also, some people say that Intel is preparing something interesting around the corner. Nevertheless, we don’t know how big that corner is, so for now Ryzen 5000H is the better option.

Asus: ASUSTeK Computer Incorporated, a Taiwanese multinational company, produces motherboards, graphics cards, optical drives, PDAs, computer monitors, notebook computers, servers, networking products, mobile phones, computer cases, computer components, and computer cooling systems. The company's 2007 revenues reached US$6.9 billion. ASUS also produces components for other manufacturers. The Eee PC initiated the netbook boom in 2008.

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 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 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.

These graphics cards are able to play the latest and most demanding games in high resolutions and full detail settings with enabled Anti-Aliasing.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 Laptop GPU: High-End laptop graphics card based on the Ampere GA104 chip. Available in different versions with a TDP from 80 to 125 Watt.
