Model: Most of us have heard of the many cleverly named series of products hailing from the Asus brand and yet this particular gaming laptop model has a name that comes off as rather competent and fresh to the ears. The ever expanding brand presented us the Asus TUF FX505GM-BQ189T gaming laptop model, which is jam-packed with power and competency to the point that it is bound to amaze long-time avid gamers from past generation as well as the present. With an applaudable modern design and unrivaled rigidity, the Asus TUF FX505GM-BQ189T leaves its mark within the gaming industry as a much reputed console of choice for modern gaming titles.

First and foremost, the impactful performance of the Asus TUF FX505GM-BQ189T is attributed to the incorporation of two powerhouse core components – the Intel Core i5-8300H processor unit and the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 graphics processor unit. The Intel Core i5-8300H processor unit has recorded a base performance speed of 2.3 GHz. Suffice to say, any processor unit that can achieve a base frequency exceeding 2 GHz is to be regarded as fast. Not only that, the activation of Turbo Mode through Intel’s very own Turbo Boost Technology can uncap the base speed up of the Intel Core i5-8300H unit to a maximum 4 GHz. This enables the Asus TUF FX505GM-BQ189T laptop model to perform almost flawlessly thanks to the power capacity that can be generated by the Intel Core i5-8300H processor unit. To top that off, the combination of this core component alongside the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 graphics processor unit makes no room for lethargy nor sluggishness in regards to performance. This is due to the fact that the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 GPU is one of the latest hardware components that makes practical use of the NVIDIA Pascal architecture that can ensure delivery of brilliant gaming performance which does not exclude the seamless experience on Virtual Reality (VR) gaming.

Apart from amazing core components lying dormant within the Asus TUF FX505GM-BQ189T laptop model, the device itself also boasts an eye-catching physical aesthetic design that is bound to wow even the most hardcore of gamers. The structure of the Asus TUF FX505GM-BQ189T is designed based on a rugged but polished military concept whereby it comes off as extremely rigid for a mere gaming laptop. This is true due to the fact that the materials that are used for the construction of the Asus TUF FX505GM-BQ189T model is assembled from aluminum Gunmetal Grey or Black sand-blasted finish that features a Radiating-X design.

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. 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.
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++). » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
