Reviews for the Asus TUF FX505DU-MB74

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.

ASUS TUF Gaming FX505DU Review
Source: Yugatech English
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.

ASUS TUF Gaming FX505DU Hands-On, Quick Review: Metal-Clad Upgrade
Source: Unbox English
As part of its second-quarter 2019 refresh, ASUS recently unveiled its updated TUF Gaming FX505 laptops. But aside from the new Ryzen 7 processors and NVIDIA’s new GTX GPUs, the FX505DU looks virtually identical to the FX505DY we reviewed last month. What exactly has changed? Let’s check out its key differences from the FX505DY:

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. With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
