Asus TUF Gaming A16 Advantage Edition in review: AMD notebook under the auspices of the 7

Marathon wonder. The Asus TUF Gaming A16 contains not only a CPU, but also a GPU from the current AMD generation. Find out in our review whether an upgrade is worthwhile or whether performance gains are insufficient.
Asus TUF Gaming A16

Unsurprisingly, the brand new TUF Gaming A16 will be available in several variants. Depending on the model, a Ryzen 7 7735HS or a Ryzen 9 7940HS serves as the CPU, while either a Radeon RX 7600S or a Radeon RX 7700S is used as the graphics card. As in the past, the S denotes moderate power consumption. The 16-inch display also lives on: either as a FHD+ panel (1920x1200) with 165 Hz and 100% sRGB coverage, or as a QHD+ panel (2560x1600) with 240 Hz and 100% DCI-P3 coverage. According to the Asus website, the DDR5 RAM ranges from 8 to 32 GB, the storage capacity from 512 GB to 2 TB.

Our review device is one of the cheaper versions and comes equipped with the Ryzen 7 7735HS, the Radeon RX 7600S, an FHD+ panel, 16 GB of RAM and a 1 TB SSD.

Competitors of the TUF Gaming A16 primarily include other mid-range notebooks with AMD hardware such as the Asus ROG Zephyrus G14 GA402RJ (R7 6800HS & RX 6700S) or the Lenovo Legion S7 16ARHA7 (R9 6900HX & RX 6800S). On the Nvidia side, devices with a GeForce RTX 3060 should be regarded as the main opponents. While the HP Envy 16 h0112nr has an identical maximum TGP of 95 watts, the Asus TUF Gaming F15 FX507ZM, for example, boasts a significantly higher TGP of 140 watts - at the expense of energy consumption, of course.

Case

The case gets a good score. Asus has opted for a combination of plastic (base unit) and metal (cover) and a decent material strength/thickness. The chassis only yields noticeably under heavy pressure. Compared to other devices, the lid is also quite torsion-resistant, although fingerprints quickly collect on the metal cover.

As for the design, Asus manages a successful compromise between subtle and playful. While the dark coloring is rather plain, the manufacturer has been quite creative with some details (power button, function lights, lid shape). The workmanship also leaves no room for criticism. In the case of our review sample, all design elements come together very cleanly.

The A16 is not necessarily one of the lightest and most compact gaming notebooks. At a weight of 2.2 kg, the 16-incher is limited in its suitability for frequent trips, but most competing devices have comparable values here. The height is also a similar story at a maximum of 2.7 cm.

Equipment

Connectivity

According to the Asus homepage, the range of ports varies depending on the model. For example, a USB 4 port is not on board as standard, but only installed in the better or more expensive variants. Our review device has to make do with two USB-A 3.2 Gen1 ports and two USB-C 3.2 Gen2 ports (with the latter supporting DisplayPort). A positive aspect: Power Delivery at up to 100 watts is possible on one of the Type-C ports. The A16 also has an HDMI 2.1 output, an RJ45 port, an audio jack and an opening for Kensington locks. Only a card reader is missing.

The distribution of the connections is designed more for right-handers. Due to the many ports placed on the left, using a mouse on the left side may result in limitations.

Communication

In terms of WLAN performance, the laptop lands in the midfield with send and receive rates of up to 900 MBit/s, which we measured from a distance of one meter to our new Asus Rapture GT-AXE11000 reference router. This is clearly surpassed by the Zephyrus G14 despite a similar MediaTek chip.

Accessories

The only accessories included with our review sample were a few information booklets. The 240-watt power supply unit weighs just over 500 g and measures approx. 16 x 7.5 x 2 cm, so it is neither small nor particularly bulky.

Maintenance

To access the internals of the TUF Gaming A16, a little more than 10 Phillips screws have to be removed from the underside. Then the entire base plate can be levered out of its anchorage with a good deal of effort. Almost all components can be seen, whereby the SSD and RAM modules are hidden behind a plastic film (see photos).

Warranty

In Germany, the warranty extends beyond 24 months. This may differ in other countries, so buyers should double-check with the seller before purchasing.

Input Devices

Keyboard

Asus could improve the keyboard a little. Although the keyboard generally cuts a decent figure, a few weaknesses and inconsistencies appear upon closer inspection. Starting with the typing feel, which feels a little spongy in terms of pressure point and stroke. We would have preferred crisper or harder feedback here.

The layout is also debatable. In addition to the F keys, the directional arrows are also very small. The fact that some functions (e.g. Enter/Del) are combined is, in the author's opinion, inconvenient. In addition, the lettering is relatively weak, so that the white backlight, which can be adjusted in several steps, should also remain active during the day. The full numpad and the four special keys, including volume control, should be regarded as plus points.

Touchpad

The touchpad is impressive almost all across the board. In addition to its dimensions (approx. 13 x 7.5 cm), its gliding properties are also pleasing. Extremely fast inputs are possible thanks to the smooth surface. Further praise goes to the touchpad for its precision and clean gesture support. However, the click buttons at the bottom are not quite perfect. These could be a little more stable and less rickety

Display

The TUF Gaming A16 offers a matte 16-inch display in 16:10 format. Our review model was powered by a 165 Hz panel with a resolution of 1,920 x 1,200.

If you disregard the poor brightness (only 293 cd/m² on average), the IPS screen shows almost no weaknesses. A black value of 0.23 cd/m² should satisfy most buyers, as should a contrast ratio of more than 1,300:1. In addition, response times (10 ms black-to-white, 17 ms grey-to-grey) are decent, and the good color reproduction does not require calibration.

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
10.1 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 5.4 ms rise
↘ 4.7 ms fall
The screen shows good response rates in our tests, but may be too slow for competitive gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.1 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 23 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (21.5 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey

In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.2 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 26 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (33.7 ms).

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM not detected

In comparison: 53 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 17915 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

Performance

The TUF Gaming A16 is in the mid-range segment in terms of equipment. Passionate gamers who want to play at maximum details for years should look elsewhere for more powerful hardware.

Testing Conditions

Various performance profiles and GPU modes can be selected in the pre-installed Armory Crate, which sometimes appears overloaded and confusing due to the many functions. Unless otherwise stated, all our tests were carried out in Performance mode with the GPU mode set to Standard. Although Turbo mode would tease out a few more percentage points (note the Cinebench loop and the 3DMark scores), this comes at the cost of disproportionately higher noise levels.

Processor

The Ryzen 7 7735HS is an eight-core processor equipped with 16 MB of L3 cache, is manufactured via the 6 nm process and can process up to 16 threads in parallel via SMT. The base clock is 3.2 GHz, with up to 4.75 GHz possible under load. The TDP ranges from 35 to 54 watts, depending on the notebook. Thanks to graphics switching, the TUF A16 can automatically switch between the dGPU and the Radeon 680M integrated in the processor, which is definitely sufficient for less demanding games.

In the long-term test with Cinebench R15, the Ryzen 7 7735HS delivers pleasingly stable performance values without drops, which also applies to most of the competitors. The speed is consistently on par with the Lenovo Legion S7 (R9 6900HX) and HP Envy 16 (Core i7-12700H).

System Performance

In the system tests, the Gaming A16 comes in last place in the comparison field (just behind the Zephyrus G14), but 7,332 points in PCMark 10 is still a good result. Somewhat annoying is the fact that the system, in its delivery state, sometimes freezes or hangs for seconds when opening programs. This is due to the Smart Access Graphic option in the Armoury Crate software, which is responsible for the GPU switch.

Storage Devices

Asus provides our review configuration with a M.2-based 1 TB SSD. The NVMe drive offers a solid performance for PCIe standards with almost 4,000 MB/s in sequential read and around 3,000 MB/s in sequential write (AS SSD benchmark). A bonus: One M.2 slot is still free in the case.
