Asus TUF Gaming F15 FX566HM-HN097TS

It is a known fact that the ASUS TUF Gaming lineup of laptops have always included good mid-range components for gaming on the go, and this year's TUF Gaming F15 improves on the formula with even more powerful graphics components. This laptop comes with the latest 11th gen Intel core CPUs, armed with an Nvidia Geforce RTX 3060 that should be more than enough to power its 1080p screen with a high refresh rate. This laptop also gets an update to its design and chassis, all of which helps in distinguishing itself from gaming laptops of the past.
In terms of its design, the F15 shakes up its design with a new style that leaves behind the gamer-centric aesthetics that plagued the entire gaming laptop landscape in the past few years. This laptop is well-balanced, with a rather comfortable keyboard to type on. The trackpad is also quite serviceable, although there is some lack of capacitive touch. On the other hand, the textured honeycomb design on the base adds grip and feels nice to use, while the hexagon reinforcements around the chassis offer a sturdy feel. The huge palm rest area is a treat for gamers as well as people who spend a lot of time working on the keyboard. Apart from that, the desktop-style keyboard comes with hairline brush strokes, and that, which does save the laptop from smudges.
As far as the display is concerned, the laptop carries a 1080p display which is well-suited to the internals powering it, with the panel's 144Hz refresh rate compensating for the lack of colour depth. However, the display tends to be a bit too “smooth” looking, with colours looking flat, especially while watching movies. Apart from that, it is worth noting that ASUS's claims of the laptop's audio solution including buzzwords like 'DTS:X Ultra' and 'Advanced Two-Way AI Noise Cancelation' reads well on paper, but their implementation could use some more fine tuning. While it is not to say that the laptop speakers are not good, it is just acceptably good.
In addition, the laptop’s cooling system will definitely need weeks of testing to verify its claims, although the fans tend to be quiet even when gaming at maximum power. Apart from that, there are also distinct performance profiles that can automatically switch based on the power load on the laptop and testing on the 'Turbo' mode keeps fan noise at a minimum to the point where the user might not find the need to plug in headphones.
As for the performance, the TUF Gaming F15 laptop comes with an 8 core/16 thread Intel Core i9-11900H with 16GB of RAM and an Nvidia Geforce RTX 3060. Overall, it is a great gaming laptop to be explored, depending on the need and preference of the user.

80% Asus TUF Gaming F15 (2021) review: A delightful gaming laptop
Source: The Indian Express English
The TUF Gaming F15 is a versatile notebook. Given the hardware it comes in, it isn’t much of a surprise to see the Gaming F15 is pretty good at handling most tasks I threw at during my testing. After installing Windows 11 (it’s still in beta right now), the performance seemed to have improved a bit. Of course, the TUF Gaming F15 is all about playing AAA PC games you wanted to play. Sure, it is still a mid-tier gaming notebook but has the heart at the right place.

80% Asus TUF Gaming F15 laptop review: The name says it all
Source: India Today English
At a starting price of Rs 104,990, the Asus TUF Gaming F15 is for hardcore gamers or people who want a gaming machine first and then a Windows machine that can also double as a secondary work machine. However, I should mention that the one we reviewed is the top model and is priced at Rs 175,990, which in my opinion, is on the higher side. Why should you consider the TUF Gaming F15 laptop? Well, it's powerful to run almost any heavy-graphic PC game and offers a good keyboard layout that suits gaming needs. A powerful processor coupled with an excellent GPU makes sure you have fun with all the popular gaming titles. However, it is heavy and is not the laptop you want to move often. In addition, the speaker setup and webcam are average. If you are looking for alternatives, you can look at the Asus ROG Flow X13 laptop, which starts at Rs 1,19,900 (without the XG Mobile) or the Dell XPS 13 laptop, which is available at a starting price of Rs 1,41,900.
