Reviews for the Asus TUF Dash F15 FX516PR

82.4% Asus TUF Dash F15 Laptop: Ampere with one foot on the brake | Notebookcheck
Asus put the slowest currently available GeForce RTX 3070 Laptop GPU into its brand-new TUF Dash F15. Find out in our test what this means for performance, power consumption, and emissions (noise, temperature, etc).
Review: Asus TUF Dash F15

The Asus TUF Dash F15 is a curious laptop that bodes well for common workloads but struggles in its primary ambition of delivering high-quality 1080p gaming at super-fast framerates.

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.

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.

70% Asus TUF Dash F15 (RTX 3070) review
Source: Laptop Mag English
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 TUF Dash F15 gaming laptop walks the line between work and play at CES 2021
Source: CNet English
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.
