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 AMD Ryzen-powered Asus TUF Gaming FX505DY sits below the Intel-powered FX505 in terms of price but offers the same sort of sturdy build, attractive design, and upgradeability. Where it falls short is in outright gaming capability, speaker performance, and storage speed.

AMD has spent time and effort in improving its Ryzen processors, and it has paid off: gone are the days when Intel remains to be the king when it comes to processors. The likes of the Ryzen 5 offer an affordable and non-mainstream alternative to what Intel has in store.

As much as I wanted to give my full insight into the ASUS TUF Gaming FX505DY, but due to certain constraints like its Hard Drive issues, I cannot do so. Nevertheless, the gaming laptop’s design is premium while I also like its slim side bezels. It also has a high refresh rate panel that I love since I am into first-person shooter games and it is uncommon to get one at this price range.

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.
