Reviews for the Asus TUF Gaming F17 FX706HM-HX116R

Choosing a gaming laptop in 2022 is being more difficult than ever. One of the main questions that arise, is should you wait for 12th Gen Intel-based, or Ryzen 6000H laptops to appear on the market, or the “old” generation is still good enough. While we will know the answer to that, as soon as we get our hands on a new-gen product ourselves, the Tiger Lake-H45 CPUs are probably the best you can get for gaming. If you are willing to spend more on a gaming device, there are a couple of better options on the market. For instance, both the MSI GP76 Leopard and the Lenovo Legion 5i (17″, 2021) feature 130W versions of the RTX 3060 and can be specced higher. This includes the ASUS ROG Strix G17 G713. However, the amount of features and new tech crammed in this price category, makes us wonder how is ASUS getting profit from selling this device. Of course, it has its downsides, but it’s fantastic to see the sheer value, the TUF Gaming F17 (FX706, 2021) provides to its users.
