Reviews for the Asus TUF FX505DY
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.
The Asus TUF Gaming FX505DY is an affordable gaming laptop built on AMD tech. However, it struggles with modern, graphically-intensive games.

The Asus TUF Gaming FX505DY joins the Dell G5 15 and Acer Nitro 15.6 as one of the better budget gaming laptops. One of the highlights is something that doesn’t actually shine in the results: the display.
