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.
