Asus TUF Gaming A17 FA707XI laptop review: 140 W GeForce RTX 4070 for $1400

TUF to beat for the price. It's a "plain" look when compared to the flashier ROG series, but the focus on speed and simplicity is what's most important for gamers on tighter budgets. However, potential buyers should be aware of all the cut corners.

The Asus TUF Gaming A17 FA707 is the AMD version of the Intel-based TUF Gaming F17 FX707. The TUF series consists of midrange gaming laptops to contrast the pricier and higher-end ROG series.

Our configuration is the latest SKU with the Zen 4 Ryzen 9 7940HS CPU, 140 W GeForce RTX 4070 GPU, and 1080p 144 Hz IPS display for approximately $1400 USD retail. Other SKUs of this model ship with the slower Ryzen 7 7735HS, GeForce RTX 4050 or 4060, or higher resolution 1440p display with even faster 240 Hz or 360 Hz refresh rates.

Alternatives to the TUF Gaming A17 include other midrange gaming laptops like the MSI Pulse 17HP Pavilion Gaming 17, Lenovo Legion 5 series, or the Acer Nitro 17 series.

Case

The chassis is largely identical to the TUF Gaming F17 FX707 including the positioning of the ports and the metal and plastic materials for the outer lid and base, respectively. Nonetheless, there are small superficial differences on the outer lid to help visually distinguish the TUF Gaming A17 from the TUF Gaming F17. The corner circles on the F17, for example, are now diagonal lines. There are also additional marks along the bottom edge of the lid whereas these are completely absent on the F17. If flipped upside-down, the rubber triangle on the bottom of the chassis is now orange instead of red. 

Our impressions on the build quality of the Intel-based F17 apply here for the AMD-based A17.

Despite its unexciting visual design, the TUF Gaming A17 is still thinner and lighter than many other midrange 17.3-inch gaming laptops like the HP Pavilion Gaming 17, Acer Nitro 17, or MSI Pulse 17 by 200 to 500 grams each depending on the model. The differences are wide enough to be noticeable when traveling and so the relatively small size of the Asus can be a distinct advantage.

Connectivity

Our model retains all the ports as found on the F17 FX707 but with one minor exception: the Thunderbolt 4 port has been swapped with USB-C 4. Most Thunderbolt devices are nonetheless compatible with USB4 and so this small difference should not impact the vast majority of users.

Note that while there are two USB-C ports on the system, only the one closest to the front edge is compatible with USB-C AC adapters. For example, our 135 W USB-C Lenovo adapter could recharge the Asus via one USB-C port but not the other. The system must also be on dGPU mode to support external USB-C monitors.

Interestingly, our external monitor would only work with one of the two USB-C ports even though Asus claims that both ports should be compatible.

Communication

A Realtek RTL8852BE comes standard for Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.3 connectivity. There are no configurations with Wi-Fi 6E or the Intel AX series likely to save on costs. We nonetheless experienced no connectivity issues when paired to our Wi-Fi 6 network even though throughout is slower than expected.

Webcam

The model integrates a 1 MP or 720p webcam whereas most other gaming laptops have already moved on to 2 MP or 1080p. While better than nothing, it's clear that the TUF Gaming A17 wasn't designed for Zoom calls.

Maintenance

The bottom panel pops off relatively easily after removing its 12 Phillips screws. There are no major internal differences between the Intel and AMD versions and so users are still getting two M.2 SSD slots and two SODIMM slots. RAM is limited to 4800 MHz.

Accessories And Warranty

There are no extras in the box other than the AC adapter and paperwork. The usual one-year limited warranty applies if purchased in the US.

Input Devices

Keyboard

The tri-zone RGB keyboard provides 1.7 mm of key travel to be slightly deeper than the keys on most Ultrabooks. The typing experience is pleasant for a gaming laptop so long as you can forgive the cramped arrow keys and numpad.

Key visibility is not great as the dark gray font contrasts poorly with the black key caps. It's a bizarre decision by Asus to highlight only the WASD letters in white while all other symbols are much darker. This forces the user to enable the keyboard backlight for easier readability even when under bright conditions or if battery life is a concern.

Touchpad

At 13 x 7.7 cm, the clickpad remains the same as on the TUF Gaming F17. However, we can notice no issues on our clickpad here whereas the one on our Intel version had a "dead spot" near the bottom right corner. Feedback is decent if not slightly on the soft side when pressed.

Display

Our 1080p AU Optronics B173HAN04.9 IPS panel is an entry-level display found on many other gaming laptops including the MSI Pulse 17 or Katana 17. It is typically the cheapest and lowest-end option distinguished by its poor ~60% sRGB color reproduction and slow black-white response times. Thankfully, Asus offers a total of three displays to choose from for its FA707 series:

  • 1920 x 1080, IPS, ~60% sRGB, 144 Hz
  • 2560 x 1440, IPS, 100% DCI-P3, 240 Hz
  • 2560 x 1440, IPS, 100% sRGB, 360 Hz

While there are no OLED or mini-LED options, we highly recommend any of the two 1440p panels as they each offer significantly better colors than the base 1080p panel while maintaining both adaptive sync and Advanced Optimus.

The display does not come calibrated with its average grayscale and color deltaE values of 3.2 and 4.51, respectively. Calibrating the display ourselves with an X-Rite colorimeter would improve these respective averages down to just 0.3 and 1.82. However, colors still become increasingly inaccurate at higher saturation levels due to the limited color space mentioned above. Blue, for example, suffers from a very high deltaE of 20.94 even after 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
26.9 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 13.8 ms rise
↘ 13.1 ms fall
The screen shows relatively slow response rates in our tests and may be too slow for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.1 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 63 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (21.5 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
39 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 18 ms rise
↘ 21 ms fall
The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.2 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 53 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse 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 17900 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

Outdoor visibility is relatively poor despite the matte panel to reduce glare. Maximum brightness is only around 250 to 300 nits compared to almost twice that on laptops like the MacBook Pro 16 or the competing Lenovo Legion Slim 7 16.

Testing Conditions

We set Asus Armoury Crate to Turbo mode and Ultimate GPU mode prior to running the benchmarks below. Changing the Armoury Crate power profiles automatically changes the Windows power profiles as well. Note that Performance mode is not the fastest power profile available; that title instead goes to Turbo mode.

Meanwhile, the four GPU modes are tied to MUX and Advanced Optimus as follows:

  • Ultimate mode: Discrete GPU is active for all tasks. A soft reboot is required. This is also required to enable G-Sync on the internal monitor.
  • Standard mode: Otherwise known as Microsoft MSHybrid. Automatic switching between dGPU for demanding applications and iGPU for other tasks.
  • Eco mode: Discrete GPU is disabled and all applications will run on the iGPU.
  • Optimized mode: Automatic switching between dGPU for demanding applications and iGPU for other tasks when on AC power. If on battery power, the dGPU is automatically disabled.

Processor

The Ryzen 9 7940HS competes directly with the common Core i7-13700H. Raw performance is within just a few percentage points of its Intel counterpart in both single- and multi-threaded loads. We can observe no major throttling issues as well unlike on the TUF Gaming F17 FX707Z with the older 12th gen Core i7-12700H.

Downgrading to the Ryzen 7 7735HS from our Ryzen 9 7940HS will impact processor performance by about 15 to 20 percent. The Ryzen 7 option is still plenty fast for gaming especially at our midrange level where the GPU is almost always the bottleneck, but gamers looking to squeeze every last frame from the high refresh rate panel should consider the Ryzen 9.

System Performance

PCMark scores are some of the highest of any 13th gen Core i7-powered gaming laptop due to the fast Zen 4 Ryzen 7 CPU and GeForce RTX 4070 GPU. We didn't experience any crashes during testing, but the display would sometimes have wake-from-sleep issues possibly due to the automatic GPU switching.

Storage Devices

Our test unit ships with the WD SN560 which is a midrange PCIe4 x4 NVMe SSD in contrast to the higher-end WDC SN850X series. Transfer rates top out at around 5000 MB/s instead of 7000+ MB/s on the aforementioned SN850X. For a midrange gaming laptop, however, the WD SN560 is more than sufficient. We can record no performance throttling issues on our drive as shown by our DiskSpd stress test results below.
