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.

85% Asus TUF Gaming FX505 review (FX505GE – i7-8750H, GTX 1050 Ti, 144 Hz screen)
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.

73% Asus TUF Gaming FX505 Review
Source: Think Digit English
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.

Sick of seeing Intel Core i5-8300H and Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 gaming laptops? Then try this $700 AMD-only alternative instead. The Ryzen Zen+ platform shines in its first outing even though it's a bit late to the party.

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 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.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 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.» 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:
