Reviews for the Asus TUF Gaming A17 FA706QR

[ULTRA DEEP REVIEW] ASUS TUF A17 (FA706) – beast hardware inside a budget-conscious gaming machine

ASUS TUF A17 (FA706) 2021 review – RTX 3000 graphics and Ryzen 5000 CPUs inside a budget-conscious gaming machine

Additionally, this unit comes with a beefy 90Wh battery pack, which lasts for 10 hours and 41 minutes of Web browsing, and a bit more than 10 hours of video playback. This is very welcoming for a gaming machine, as the last time we saw such numbers was back in October when we reviewed the Dell G7 7700. Interestingly, considering its price tag, the TUF A17 (FA706) 2021 is one of the best gaming options on the market. Yes, there are a couple of things we would have loved to see – like something other than plastic for the build, and probably a cooling that performs a little bit better in gaming, but we are generally happy with the entire device. Once again, if the price is your main concern, chances are low that you can get something better for less money. However, let’s not forget that this is just the beginning, and a lot of RTX 3000 laptops are going to hit the market in the following weeks and months.

Also, some people say that Intel is preparing something interesting around the corner. Nevertheless, we don’t know how big that corner is, so for now Ryzen 5000H is the better option.
