Reviews for the Asus TUF Gaming A17 FA706II-AU077T

Although the TUF A17 is pretty much an ordinary 17-inch gaming laptop, it has two very convincing selling points. The first one is the price. There is no other 17-incher at this price (currently) that has an 8-core processor and a GTX 1660 Ti. Period. The price/performance ratio here is on point. And speaking of performance… All hail the new CPU king. This processor is marginally faster even than the Core i9-9900K, placed inside of the Alienware Area-51m. Yep, a mobile processor comfortably beats a desktop one, having the same core count.

Much like it's A15 15-inch sibling, the larger Asus TUF Gaming A17 is a solid performance laptop in the budget-tier segments. Our review model excels in productivity and CPU-demanding loads, thanks to the competent AMD Ryzen 4000 hardware, and is also a fair gamer even on this Nvidia GTX 1650Ti configuration, which add up to its other traits, such as the nice and ergonomic build, the RGB keyboard and the complete IO. The small battery and rather dim and washed out screen might be enough to steer your towards a more premium product though, or even towards the more competitively priced A15 version.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 Ti Mobile: Mid range dedicated graphics card for laptops that uses a Turing TU117 chip without raytracing and Tensor cores. Should be slightly faster than a GTX 1650, but is also available in different variants with a TGP ranging from 55 - 80 Watt (and two packages).
With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution.
