77% ASUS TUF DASH F15 Review
Source: Toptenreviews English
The Asus TUF Dash Fl5 is one of the more affordable gaming laptops around, and there are positives to find beyond the price. It has the pace to tackle mainstream games and esports titles, its CPU can handle everyday computing and it has a decent screen in a relatively slim, light chassis. In plenty of areas, though, the F15 is average. It has one of the slowest RTX 3070 laptop implementations we’ve seen, the CPU isn’t great in multi-threaded software and the Asus has inconsistent thermal performance and underwhelming speakers. Ultimately, you get what you pay for. The Asus is a capable everyday laptop, but spending more will buy you better performance and quality.

ASUS TUF Dash F15 Review
Source: Yugatech English
The ASUS TUF Dash F15 is one of the most interesting laptops in the series so far. It’s the company’s solution to provide people with mobility, functionality, and durability all at a relatively affordable price. Although it’s not without any problems of its own, it still checks the boxes with its good performance, great battery life, and aesthetically pleasing form factor. If there are things that could be improved, it would certainly be the addition of a built-in webcam, so we could at least have biometric login and maybe a more neutral backlight color for a more professional look. But at this price along with its performance, there’s not much to complain about other than that. Sadly this particular configuration is not available in the Philippines, but at least we get a sneak peek of what the ASUS TUF Dash F15 is fully capable of.

ASUS TUF Dash F15 Review: An Ambitious Thin and Light Gaming Laptop
Source: XDA Developers English
The ASUS TUF Dash F15 isn’t the best gaming notebook, but it gets a pass if you are looking for a laptop that offers a good balance between performance and portability. It’s easy to carry around, looks neat, and with up to 7-8 hours of battery life, it should be a great companion for when you want to work from that new coffee shop you always wanted to visit.

75% ASUS TUF Dash F15 Review w/ Tiger Lake H35
Source: Kitguru English
The four cores run at a decent speed but require much more power than you would expect, and this clearly demonstrates that Intel cannot get the desired clock speed from their 10nm CPUs in an elegant manner so instead they resort to brute force. In the very near future we expect to see Tiger Lake Core i9 CPUs with eight cores, and while there is the outside chance they will deliver the goods we predict that Tiger Lake Core i9 is going to suffer when compared to mobile AMD Ryzens.

Asus has always been very aggressive when it comes to pricing its TUF series laptops. This one is no different. The base variant with RTX 3060 graphics costs Rs 1,39,990, while the top model with RTX 3070 graphics is just Rs 1,000 more than the base.

80% Asus TUF Dash F15 review: Portable game-machine that carves out its own niche
Source: The Indian Express English
The Dash F15 is a great laptop with a good balance between performance and portability, for what I think is a small target group of people, which makes this a hard recommendation for the masses. This is further aggravated by the lack of a webcam, a fundamental necessity for a working professional during the pandemic years. However, if you do fall in that third space and want a machine that aims to be the second-best at both performance and portability, the Dash F15 is a great buy.

A decent gaming performer with some nice specification options - at a price tag that isn't going to make you cry. So what more could you want? Well, there are other options that can squeeze out yet more performance if that's extra important to you - and you've got even more available to spend, of course.

100% Asus TUF Dash F15 review: The best budget gaming laptop of 2021
Source: Expert Reviews English
Stylish, compact, powerful and with all the little refinements that separate a good gaming laptop from the notebook herd, the Asus TUF Dash F15 has it all. A webcam would have been nice and a less dull display than the 144Hz panel that adorns the RTX 3080 laptop would have been better, too, but when those are the only criticisms you can make you know you’ve got a pretty decent product on your hands. Overall, it’s an outstanding gaming laptop at a highly competitive price.

ASUS TUF Dash F15 (FX516) review – the new RTX graphics cards look promising
Source: Laptop Media English
On the downside, the SD card slot is not the only thing missing – you won’t get a Web camera either. This is a bummer in the times we live, and we can’t tell why ASUS hasn’t done their best to put one, or at least include one in a bundle. Also, the laptop gets pretty loud and hot on the outside, so we would advise an external keyboard, and a good set of headphones.

70% The Asus TUF Dash F15 Gaming Laptop Is Efficient But Not Excellent
Source: The Verge English
Not only is it unusable for video meetings (again, no webcam), but it probably won’t meet the bar for more heavy-duty tasks like video production or even a daily load of apps like the ones I use. And for gaming, this slim machine’s RTX 3070 isn’t as powerful as I would want for a long-term investment like this, especially because I’m not convinced it has the chops to brave the next wave of demanding games in a year or two.

Source: Ultrabook Review English
Having used the TUF Dash F15 for the last weeks, it kind of grew on me. It proved to be a snappy and efficient daily multitasker, as well as a better gamer than I expected from a laptop built on a 4Core platform in 2021. Yes, the 4C Tiger Lake H35 processor is a tough sell, but it will make sense later in the year once this series is available with mid-tier Ampere graphics and at more affordable prices. And that's because this can truly game, with minor performance bottlenecks in the recent AAA games, but also because it's a well-balanced package, ticking the right boxes when it comes to the design, screens, inputs, connectivity, and thermals/noise levels. We'll get in-depth on all these aspects in the detailed review down below.

That said, the TUF Dash F15’s gaming performance is only status quo with last-generation gaming notebooks since its GPU is constrained to a low power level; from what we are seeing in the early going, not all RTX 3070 notebooks are created equal. At least it runs relatively cool and quiet. Value-wise, our $1,699 test model looks great in white, but it’s pricey next to the dark gray $1,449 Best Buy model that offers nearly identical features. The entry-level $1,099 Best Buy model looks like an even better value. If you do decide to go TUF, just remember to also budget for an external webcam.

The Asus TUF Dash F15 rolled into the new year with style. While all the other laptops decided to stick with a depressing grunge look with dreary grays and blacks, the TUF Dash F15 said, “Hey, let’s have an all-white party!” The TUF Dash F15 also has a sturdy design that matches its name — its military-tested chassis is, indeed, a “tough cookie” that can take a beating.

Asus used a new cooling system with a large heat spreader and five copper heat pipes, 83-blade fans and a self-cleaning module to keep as much dust out as possible. The laptop also has two-way AI noise cancellation for chat and DTS:X Ultra technology for 7.1-channel virtual surround for stereo headsets or speakers. What you won't find is a webcam -- an odd move given how much more time people are spending on video chats.
