80% Asus TUF FX505G review: A gaming laptop packed with power
Source: The Indian Express English
For Rs 1,29,990, the laptop offers solid overall performance. I loved the way it can achieve good frame rates on graphic-heavy games. My biggest issue with any gaming laptop is the poor battery life, and this applies to the FX505G as well.

Source: Ultrabook Review English
The Asus TUF Gaming FX505 is without a shadow of a doubt one of the best mid-range gaming laptops you'll find in stores in the second part of 2018 and onwards. It's a complete revamp of the TUF FX504 line and improves on important aspects like size, design, keyboard, screen and performance, but is still Asus's entry-level gaming notebook and corners were still cut in order to meet the lower price tag. Read on for the whole story.

Asus TUF FX505GE-BQ115T

Gaming laptops are now all over the place. We even have 13.3-inch gaming laptops as well. Whether they are necessary or not, it is just about being versatile and giving as many options as possible to customers. Having said that, in the early years of gaming laptops, we did not see anything cheap. Hardware was expensive, there were not enough manufacturers and most of the people didn't believe that gaming can happen on notebooks. But nowadays and actually a few years ago this changed. We saw almost all manufacturers coming up with new gaming models almost maybe not everyday but every month. Now we are going through another shift in my opinion. Budget gaming. The very first versions of modern gaming laptops were almost all expensive devices. With the advances in hardware technology, people don't want to spend much on expensive devices that will go obsolete in a very short time. The TUF series is Asus’ new budget line, in short I can say that. TUF stands for “The Ultimate Force”. It is a bold statement and unfortunately I can't say that it holds up to it; mainly because of the GPU. The GTX 1050 Ti was a good card when it was first launched. Right now, I think it belongs to the multimedia section more than gaming and even for budget laptops the GTX 1060 should be the first go to option. Of course each SKU comes with a different configuration. Intel’s 8th generation processors will be fine for a few years. As I said before the GTX 1050 Ti will not. On the other hand, you don't get many modern connection options either. 1x USB 2.0 and 2xUSB 3.0. At least a display port could be provided as well. But, I get it, it is a budget laptop, so the main focus is cutting costs as much as possible. I guess saying that the TUF series competes with Asus Nitro 5 series in terms of workmanship. Both cases are made out of plastic, so don't expect much of a stability there. One thing to criticize is the battery. With just 48 Wh capacity, you can’t play much on battery power. Definitely needs to stay close to an outlet. Would I suggest this device? Not as is. If you opt in for a GTX 1060, then it is suggestible. Otherwise forget about high resolutions in modern games. But if you say you really have a tight budget and want a gaming laptop, then don’t forget to check out the competition as well. You can consider the Acer Nitro 5, the HP 15 and even older gaming rigs with better GPUs. All high end processors are fine, just the GPU makes the biggest difference here.

80% Asus TUF FX505 review: Latest Intel processor and sturdy build make this a dependable gaming laptop
Source: India Today English
As with all gaming gear, the Asus TUF FX505 is quite expensive. But, in its category, this is easily one of the best gaming laptops you can buy right now. The Intel Core i7-8750H is a super fast performer while the Nvidia GTX 1060 GPU is fairly powerful to manage the latest gaming titles without breaking a sweat. I also adore the extensive heat management system and the butter-smooth 144Hz display. For competing at e-sports events, this is a laptop that can hold it for longer sessions while you are busy making a name for yourself. Surely, as a gamer, I would have preferred some crazy eye-catching design as well as a slimmer overall profile inspired from the ROG series.

Asus TUF Gaming Laptop FX505: High-end performer with robust build quality
Source: Business Standard English
Overall, The TUF FX505 with a new design, compact form factor, RGB keyboard, 144Hz screen and better wireless connectivity makes for good value for money at a starting price point of Rs 79,990 (The TUF FX505 is available in different variations ranging from Core i5 to i7 H processors, up to 32 GB of memory, GTX 1050Ti or GTX 1060 graphics and a 17.3-inch variant is also available in the FX705 series). Apart from the minor flaws, the commendable gaming performance and brilliant screen make it a good purchase without putting a huge dent in your pocket.

The Asus TUF Gaming FX505 finally lives up to its "TUF" moniker by gaining a MIL.STD-810G rating, meaning it can easily withstand the abuse of day-to-day life. The performance of the laptop was also satisfactory with all our test games running on their max graphic settings with a minimum frame-rate of 100fps. Creative professionals could also use this for their editing needs as the laptop could easily handle photo and video editing, but showed some signs of distress while colour grading fullHD footage.

ASUS TUF FX505 review – fresh but still not fully polished
Source: Laptop Media English
ASUS TUF Gaming FX505 is a good all-around gaming device. To be honest, it doesn’t offer anything special against the competition which in this class is pretty severe. This device’s main advantage is its price. However, this has hit the build quality of the product since they are some squeaks when compressing the body with your hands. In this aspect, the MSI GP63 Leopard 8RD feels better, even though it doesn’t have the best build quality either.

Asus TUF FX505DY

The Asus TUF FX505DY is a high performance and durable gaming laptop. It is featuring a cutting-edge IPS-level NanoEdge display with AMD FreeSync technology and a refresh rate up to 120 Hz, and is armed with the latest AMD Ryzen processor and discrete Radeon graphics. The TUF FX505 AMD Edition has two stand-out designs that exude toughness and power. Its Gunmetal Grey aluminum or black plastic cover features the distinctive Radiating-X design with a matching sandblasted or brushed finish. The hexagonal design on the underside of the chassis provides additional structural rigidity, completing the laptop's modern and aggressive lines. The new NanoEdge design has a slimmer-than-ever 6.5 mm bezel for extremely engaging visuals in a much more compact package. The FX505 AMD Edition features an ultrafast IPS-level panel for supersmooth gameplay with minimal motion blur. Wide-view technology ensures consistent colors when users are viewing the screen from extreme angles. Furthermore, with AMD FreeSync, the display’s refresh rate synchronizes with the GPU’s frame rate to reduce lag, minimize stuttering, and eliminate visual tearing. As for hardware performance, it is powered by the latest AMD Ryzen 5 3550H processor, which has four cores and eight threads capable of speeds of up to 3.7 GHz. And it’s not just for gaming, the FX505 AMD Edition allows for faster, more efficient multitasking, including daily productivity tasks, surfing the net, and watching movies and videos. Paired with the Radeon RX 560X graphics, users can rest assured that the FX505 AMD Edition is up to the task, inside and outside the gaming arena. Infused with the spirit of The Ultimate Force (TUF), FX505 AMD Edition has passed a series of rigorous military-grade MIL-STD-810G durability tests, successfully surviving varying conditions including solar radiation exposure, high altitude, and temperature extremes. It's certified to endure day-to-day use, from accidental knocks to sudden drops off a desk. The FX505 AMD Edition has a keyboard that's optimized for gaming, featuring RGB backlighting across all zones that can be controlled via the TUF Aura Core panel. Exclusive HyperStrike technology ensures more accurate typing and improved ergonomics thanks to a desktop-inspired layout with a highlighted WASD key group, broader space bar, isolated arrow keys, and recognizable gaps between the function keys. For cooling, the ASUS-exclusive HyperCool technology consists of the Anti-Dust Cooling (ADC) system and HyperFan to ensure exceptional cooling during gaming marathons. Cooling is also improved by the patented trapezoid-cut lid and intelligent parallel fan placement. As a conclusion, the Asus TUF FX505DY is a gaming laptop that delivers high-performance gaming at an affordable price. It is not that common to see a gaming laptop with AMD only hardware. This puts this laptop at a special position in the market. Hands-on article by Jagadisa Rajarathnam

Performance numbers are decent from a notebook that costs less than R20 000 and the build quality is fantastic.

ASUS TUF Gaming FX505D Review: Proof That You Can Game On A Budget
Source: Lowyat.net English
From my time with it, the ASUS TUF Gaming FX505D is clearly no slouch in the gaming department. It’s also unique in its own way, being one of the only gaming notebooks on the market to be powered by AMD’s 3rd generation Ryzen mobile CPUs. As well as having game-centric accoutrements such as a 120Hz refresh rate Full HD display, all-zone RGB lighting, and the option to have an NVIDIA GeForce RTX series GPU fitted into the system.

ASUS TUF FX505DU Review: TUF Gets Tougher
Source: Unbox English
ASUS’ TUF FX505DU is miles ahead of its plastic-clad brethren. The notebook feels tougher, more premium and feels better put together than its cheaper sibling. And thanks to a better processor and GPU, it’s more capable of taking advantage of its 120Hz panel, though you’ll have to lower graphical settings a little bit to go past 60 frames reliably. The tradeoff here is that the TUF FX505DU is significantly more expensive, coming in at Php 71,995 for the configuration that we reviewed.

The ASUS TUF Gaming FX505DU is an excellent gaming laptop with decent performance and great display. It also has connectivity sporting two USB Type-A 3.0 ports; however, I expected more like putting at least one USB 3.1 or a USB Type-C port. It is also worth noting that the audio quality is terrible as it lacks bass and the sound gets distorted when putting it at maximum volume. You should also watch out for its thermals given that it has three exhaust vents installed. Despite that, I like how it has a premium look and feel, as well as a little screen and keyboard flex, indicating that this device is very durable and well-built.

80.4% No Intel Required: Asus TUF FX505DT Laptop Review with Ryzen 7 and GeForce GTX 1650 | Notebookcheck
As it turns out, mid-range Nvidia GPUs pair very well with AMD's latest Ryzen H-series of CPUs. Asus is doubling down on even more Intel-less gaming laptops that gamers on tight budgets ought to consider.
ASUS TUF FX505 review – how does the Ryzen 7 3750H perform in a budget laptop?
Source: Laptop Media English
ASUS TUF Gaming FX505 is a good all-around gaming device. To be honest, it doesn’t offer anything special against the competition which in this class is pretty severe. This device’s main advantage is its price. However, this has hit the build quality of the product since they are some squeaks when compressing the body with your hands. In this aspect, the MSI GP63 Leopard 8RD feels better, even though it doesn’t have the best build quality either.

76% Asus TUF Gaming FX505DT Review: An Affordable Gaming Laptop With Decent Hardware
Source: Tech2 English
The Asus TUF Gaming FX505DT ensures that an essential set of components and features are delivered so that your gaming experience is pleasant. This includes the high-speed PCIe Gen3 SSD storage, discrete graphics card and a full HD display with a refresh rate of 120 Hz. It manages to run most of the gaming titles you throw at it comfortably, although at medium to high graphics settings. Having tested and used a few budget gaming laptops myself, I'd always find something or the other amiss in the design. This could be a poorly calibrated display or painfully slow storage. The FX505DT makes none of those mistakes and makes for a very satisfying gaming laptop, especially if you have a budget of Rs 80,000.

Comment

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 1050 Ti (Laptop): Mainstream graphics card based on Nvidia's Pascal architecture and successor to the GeForce GTX 965M. Is manufactured in a 14nm process at Samsung and the technical specifications are very similar to the desktop version.NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 (Laptop): The mobile GTX 1060 is based on the GP106 chip and offer 1280 shaders. Compared to the identically named desktop version it features a slightly lower clock rate. Games in Full HD and maximum details should run fluently on the card.NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 (Laptop): Mainstream graphics card based on Nvidia's Pascal architecture and successor to the GeForce GTX 960M. Is manufactured in a 14nm process at Samsung and the technical specifications are very similar to the desktop version.AMD Radeon RX 560X (Laptop): Renamed Radeon RX 560 with slightly altered clock speeds. Offers 1024 shader cores and a usual clock speed of 1175 - 1275 MHz.NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 Ti (Laptop): 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 GTX 1650 (Laptop): 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. NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Max-Q: Efficient mid-range graphics card for thin and light laptops based on the same GP107 chip as the normal GTX 1050 for laptops but at slower clock speeds. Offers a approx. 10 - 15% lower performance than the laptop GTX 1050 but at a much lower power consumption. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  

8750H: On Coffee Lake architecture based processor for big and heavy laptops. Integrates six processor cores clocked at 2.2 - 4.1 GHz (4 GHz with 4 cores, 3.9 GHz with 6 cores) that support HyperThreading. Manufactured in an improved 14nm process (14nm++). Intel Core i5:

8300H: On Coffee Lake architecture based processor for big and heavy laptops. Integrates four processor cores clocked at 2.3 - 4 GHz (3.9 GHz with 4 cores) that support HyperThreading. Manufactured in an improved 14nm process (14nm++). AMD Ryzen 5:

3550H: Mobile Quad-Core APU using Zen cores clocked at 2.2 to 3.8 GHz and a Vega graphics card with 10 CUs clocked at up to 1300 MHz.AMD Ryzen 7:

3750H: Mobile Quad-Core APU using Zen+ cores clocked at 2.3 to 4 GHz and a Vega graphics card with 10 CUs clocked at up to 1400 MHz. The 3750H is the 35 Watt version of the 3700U with the same specs but a higher TDP for better performance under long periods of load.
