Asus TUF A17 FA706IU Ryzen 7 Laptop Review: Core i9 Performance for $1100 USD

Sky-high performance for a low-budget price. 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.

Unveiled at CES 2020, the 15.6-inch Asus TUF A15 FA506 and 17.3-inch TUF A17 FA706 series replace the older TUF FX505 and TUF FX705 series, respectively. These latest models are completely new in design and hardware when compared to the previous generation. The manufacturer is promising MIL-STD-810H chassis certification, FreeSync display options, more ports, and of course, the all-important AMD Ryzen Renoir processor.

Despite the new look and features, however, the TUF series is still aimed at budget-mainstream gamers in contrast to the flagship Zephyrus series. Users can choose between the Ryzen 5 4600H or Ryzen 7 4800H with GTX 1650 ot GTX 1660 Ti graphics whereas Zephyrus laptops may have Ryzen 9 and GeForce RTX options. Resolution options are fixed at 1080p at up to 120 Hz. Interestingly, the smaller 15.6-inch FA506 version comes with faster RTX 2060 graphics whereas the 17.3-inch FA706 does not at the moment.

The TUF A17 FA706IU SKU today retails for approximately $1100 USD to compete against other budget to mid-range gaming laptops like the HP Pavilion Gaming 17, Lenovo Legion Y540-17, MSI GP75, Acer Nitro series, or the Dell G7 series.

Case — More Metal

Asus has improved the chassis greatly especially in regards to the lid. Whereas the lid on the older FX705 was mostly plastic and prone to flexing, the lid on the FA706 is reinforced with a thick metal plate. Creaking, twisting, and warping are minimal when compared to other budget laptops like the Lenovo Legion Y540, MSI GP75, or HP Pavilion Gaming 17. We would love to see this kind of metal reinforcement on the lids of Zephyrus laptops, too.

The weakest area of the chassis is the center of the keyboard. Applying pressure on this region will visibly warp the surface more than we would like. The tougher and heavier ROG G703 series do not exhibit this issue.

The new chassis is slightly thinner, lighter, and smaller than the last generation FX705. The minor size reduction is enough to make the FA706 one of the smaller and lighter 17.3-inch gaming laptops in its budget category.

Plastic base is largely the same material as on last year's FX705 series

Connectivity — USB Type-C Now Standard

Port options include everything on last year's FX705 but with a couple of changes: the USB 2.0 port has been moved from the left edge to the right edge and there is now a USB Type-C port. Most of the ports are still along the left edge so expect this side of the laptop to be crowded with cables. Unsurprisingly, Thunderbolt 3 is not supported here.

It would have been great to see support for Asus Keystone to further expand the versatility of Asus' proprietary customization tool, but the feature remains exclusive to select ROG laptops only.

Communication

WLAN is limited to Wi-Fi 5 speeds whereas most newer Ultrabooks and higher-end laptops come standard with Wi-Fi 6. We experienced no issues when connected to our Netgear RAX200 test router.

Maintenance

The bottom panel is secured by 11 Philips screws and it is easy to remove so long as you have a straight edge like a credit card. Once inside, users will have access to two SODIMM slots and two M.2 2280 slots. The WLAN module is also accessible but only after removing the M.2 SSD. Some SKUs will have a 2.5-inch SATA III bay and a smaller 48 Wh battery.

Accessories and Warranty

There are no extras in the box other than the AC adapter and small paperwork. The standard one-year limited warranty applies.

Input Devices — New Mouse Keys, Smaller Arrow Keys

Keyboard

The keyboard keys have crisp feedback and moderate travel at the cost of slightly louder clatter when compared to the shallower and softer keyboard keys of the Zephyrus GX502 series or Razer Blade series. 

Our least favorite aspect of the keyboard is the small size of the directional keys. There's absolutely no reason why a large 17.3-inch form factor should have some of the smallest arrow keys we've seen on any laptop. These keys are cramped, spongy, and just a pain to use as a result of their small size. Asus could certainly take some cues from the Lenovo Legion Y540 or Y740 keyboards in this regard.

Touchpad

The touchpad is small (~10.9 x 5.9 cm) and so multi-touch inputs feel cramped. Cursor control, however, is otherwise smooth and reliable with excellent gliding properties and minimal sticking when moving slowly. The dedicated mouse keys are new for the series and they offer moderate travel, adequate feedback and a quiet auditory click when pressed in contrast to the louder mouse keys on the MSI GT or GE series. They get the job done if you don't have a mouse, but you're definitely still going to want a mouse whenever possible.

Expect unsightly fingerprint buildup on the touchpad surface since it is smooth plastic.

Display — 120 Hz With Optimus And Adaptive Sync

The 120 Hz BOE NV173FHM-NX1 panel can be found on no other laptop in our database, but the NV173FHM series is common on other white label 17.3-inch laptops like the Eurocom Nightsky RX17 or Schenker XMG Neo 17. The panel here supports adaptive sync to eliminate screen-tearing a la Nvidia G-Sync but likely at lower royalty fees.

Display quality is above average for a gaming laptop but still below that of more expensive alternatives. As shown by the table below, characteristics like brightness and response times are good but not quite up there with the best while other aspects like color space are very narrow for shallower colors. Nonetheless, it's a much better panel for gaming purposes when compared to the slower panel on the last generation Asus TUF FX705DT where ghosting was more prevalent.

Color space covers just 59 percent of sRGB compared to >90 percent on most Ultrabooks and pricier gaming laptops including Asus' own ROG Zephyrus models. It's a cut corner in order to keep prices low for the budget-oriented TUF series. Digital artists will want to invest in the ZenBook Pro, Zephyrus series, or ProArt StudioBook series instead where more color-accurate options are available.

Further measurements with an X-Rite colorimeter show a well-calibrated display out-of-the-box. Calibrating the display even further ourselves would result in only minimal changes in DeltaE values. Keep in mind that colors become increasingly inaccurate at higher saturation levels since the color space of the panel is so narrow. Blue is represented least accurately out of all the tested colors.

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
19.2 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 9.6 ms rise
↘ 9.6 ms fall
The screen shows good response rates in our tests, but may be too slow for competitive gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 24 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (24.4 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey

In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 16 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (38.7 ms).

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM not detected

In comparison: 51 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 9584 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 142900) Hz was measured.

Outdoor visibility is average at best not unlike most other 17.3-inch gaming laptops. Remember to disable AMD Vari-Bright or else the maximum brightness of the display will drop to just 155 nits when running on battery power. You're going to want the display to be as bright as it can be if working outside.

Performance — Like a Core i9 But Much Cheaper

Whereas the 12 nm Zen+ Ryzen 5 3550H and Ryzen 7 3750H on older TUF laptops were only comparable to the Intel Core i5 series, the new 7 nm Renoir Ryzen 5 4600H and Ryzen 7 4800H are much more powerful to the point where they can outperform the Intel Core i7 and even Core i9 in some cases. These are extremely fast CPU options relative to the budget GTX 1650 or GTX 1660 Ti graphics that power the 17.3-inch TUF series.

RAM is configurable up to 32 GB of DDR4-3200. Both Nvidia Optimus and adaptive sync are supported simultaneously. The integrated Radeon GPU is actually quite fast, but it's power is largely useless since you will be gaming on the discrete GPU anyway.

 

Processor

AMD's octa-core Ryzen 7 4800H competes directly with Intel's 10th gen Comet lake-H Core i7-10875H as found on some high-end multimedia/gaming laptops like the Gigabyte Aero 17 or Razer Blade 15. Though it's still too soon for an overall verdict, results from early retail units show the AMD chip outperforming the Intel part by 7 to 20 percent in multi-threaded workloads while running slower in single-threaded workloads by about 5 to 10 percent. Results are even faster or on par with the Core i9-10980HK or Core i9-9880H in some cases. We would need a lot more samples to get a bigger picture in the months to come, but there's no denying AMD's strong start out of the gate.

When compared to the Core i7-9750H, Core i7-10750H, or Ryzen 7 3750H, the Ryzen 7 4800H outperforms them all even in single-threaded loads and with excellent performance sustainability over long periods as well. See our dedicated page on the Ryzen 7 4800H for more technical information and benchmarks.

System Performance

PCMark benchmarks are slightly above other gaming laptops powered by the Core i7-9750H but still consistently below some costlier Comet Lake-H laptops like the Gigabyte Aero 17 with the Core i7-10875H. While we experienced no software or hardware issues with the unit, we highly recommend becoming familiar with the pre-installed Armoury Crate app as system performance is tied closely to this software.

Storage Devices — Dual M.2 PCIe x4

Two M.2 PCIe storage slots are available on our test unit. Depending on the SKU, however, some will also have a 2.5-inch SATA III bay to make storage expansion more affordable. The 1 TB Intel 660p NVMe SSD exhibits no performance throttling after running DiskSpd Read in a loop 50 times. Our table of HDDs and SSDs provide additional benchmark comparisons.

GPU Performance

The GTX 1660 Ti in our Asus holds no surprises as it performs where we expect it to be relative to other laptops with the same GPU. Users can expect roughly the same performance as the mobile GTX 1070 when running DX12 titles. Results are essentially on par with the RTX 2060 Max-Q in the smaller Zephyrus G14 sans any RT or DLSS features.

Running in Turbo mode instead of Performance mode will net ever-so-slightly higher scores in Fire Strike (20886 to 21102 points in Physics and 14772 to 15334 points in Graphics).

Gaming Performance

Intel likes to tout its advantages in single-threaded workloads that can come in handy for running games. In our tests, however, performance isn't consistently any better or worse than the average GTX 1660 Ti in our database even when on lower settings where average frame rates are higher. This suggests that games are more GPU bound in this scenario especially when considering the budget-mid-range GTX 1660 Ti. Had the system come equipped with an RTX 2070 or RTX 2080 instead, then results may vary more.

See our dedicated page on the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti for more technical information and benchmark comparisons. The GPU pairs very well with our 120 Hz adaptive sync display since it tends to run most newer games in the 40 to 60 FPS range.
