Asus has updated its TUF Gaming F15 and F17 gaming laptops with Intel Tiger Lake-H processors and Nvidia Ampere graphics cards. It joins the host of other OEMs that hopped on to the Tiger Lake-H hype train. However, the GPU choices are somewhat odd, given the remaining TUF Gaming F15 and F17 specifications. Asus will tell us more about their prices and launch dates in the coming weeks.

Both the Asus TUF Gaming F15 and F17 can be configured with up to an Intel Core i9-11900H processor, which Asus claims can turbo up to 4.9GHz. Both notebooks support up to 32GB of DDR4-3200 memory and 1TB of solid-state storage via NVMe drive, with the option to add more via a second slot. Both the memory and storage are user-upgradable, and one can easily access them relatively quickly.

Asus has also upgraded the cooling on the Asus TUF Gaming F15 and F17. The new 87-blade self-cleaning fan now allows for 10% more airflow compared to previous models. There is even a 0dB mode for silent operation. Moving on to the screens, the Asus TUF Gaming F17 packs a screen that refreshes at 144Hz. The Asus TUF Gaming F15 bumps that up to 240Hz. Both panels cover 100% of the sRGB spectrum.

The high-refresh-rate screens on the Asus TUF Gaming F15 and F17 require a powerful GPU to pump out the frames. That's why it is somewhat puzzling as to why Asus decided to pair it with an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060. Thankfully, it is the 90W variant, so it should handle most modern-day AAA games with relative ease. However, it will have a hard time pushing many titles to 144Hz, let alone 240Hz.

Lastly, the Asus TUF Gaming F15 and F17 draw power from a 90Wh battery. The included Thunderbolt 4.0 port can output 4K 60 FPS video to two monitors or 8K content to a single screen. Other input options include three USB Type-A ports and an HDMI 2.0b port. Wi-Fi 6 support is also included.
