Asus TUF Gaming F17 laptop review: Good gaming device with RTX 3060 but average display despite 144 Hz

Asus RTX entry-level device. With the TUF A17, the series was revised last year, and the new case now packs an Intel Core i9 and an RTX 3060 instead of an AMD CPU and a GTX 1660 Ti. Is the entry that Asus offers into the current RTX generation worth it?
Christian Hintze, 👁 Christian Hintze (translated by Stephanie Chamberlain), 🇩🇪 🇳🇱 ...

Asus has sent us its new, affordable TUF gaming laptop with a Tiger Lake processor and an RTX 3060. Last year, we reviewed the the TUF A17, a model from the previous series equipped with a Ryzen 7 and a GTX 1660 Ti. The new model should be much faster, at least in graphics applications and games, although the total TGP of 95 watts is rather in the middle to lower performance range of an RTX 3060. The display now supports 144 Hz instead of the former 120 Hz.

Besides the virtual predecessor, we naturally also want to compare it with the competition found in the same price segment. This primarily includes the Schenker XMG Core 17, but also the MSI Alpha 17 and, for lack of further 17-inch competition, the MSI GF65 Thin and the Acer Nitro 5 AN515-55 15-inch rivals.

Since the exterior remains the same, we won't go into details regarding the case, maintenance, input devices, etc., as long as there are no changes. This information can be found in the review of the review of the Asus TUF A17.

Case - Smaller and with more metal

The MSI Alpha is slightly deeper and thicker, while the Schenker XMG is thicker but smaller overall. Our F17 is just about the heaviest device in comparison.

Connectivity - Thunderbolt 4

It's great that the F17 has now integrated Thunderbolt 4. The remaining ports are the standard ones, and their distribution is heavily concentrated on the left side, which is very convenient for right-handed users. There are no ports at the front or back. A missing feature is the SD card reader.

Communication

In terms of Bluetooth, the F17 offers the latest Bluetooth 5.2, but the Asus device lags behind in terms of Wi-Fi transfer speeds. The speed for receiving data in particular is below average; the A17 didn't score particularly well in this regard either, and the competition is faster.

Security

A slot for a Kensington lock is available, and TPM 2.0 is supported as well.

Accessories

Except for the usual leaflets, the only extra is an A5-sized sheet of paper with TUF gaming stickers on it.

Warranty

The manufacturer provides a standard one-year warranty.

Display - There are better options

Subpixel grid
Subpixel grid
Minimal screen bleeding
Minimal screen bleeding

We don't have the top configuration when it comes to the display, since there's still a variant with an sRGB coverage of 100% and a refresh rate of 300 Hz.

The present model is a 17.3-inch matte Full HD IPS display with a refresh rate of 144 Hz and Adaptive Sync. The panel from AU Optronics delivers anything but top rates, which isn't unusual in this price range. The competition even performs worse here in some cases, and only the Schenker's display is better.

The average brightness of 264 nits is only just okay, but the brightness distribution of only 79% is extremely uneven. The maximum brightness is strongly reduced on battery power, and we only register 144 nits, but this can be deactivated in the driver.

Unfortunately, response times aren't great for a gaming device either, which can have a negative impact in very fast shooters.

Screen bleeding is minimally present along the corners and edges, but it's hardly noticeable even in dark scenes and, therefore, not bothersome.

* ... smaller is better

The black level is acceptable, but contrast is clearly below 1,000:1 and could be improved as a result.

The display is calibrated fairly well at least, and color deviations are rather low. Manual calibration only allows these to be minimally reduced.

The available color space is quite narrow; only 60% of sRGB and 41% of AdobeRGB aren't particularly good rates. However, the competition scores similarly poorly here, and only the slightly more expensive Schenker laptop can do a better job.

Although the matte surface eliminates most reflections, since the already moderate brightness is additionally reduced in a considerable way on battery power, outdoor visibility isn't optimal. We recommend looking for a place with plenty of shade and viewing the display from a direct angle.

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
22.4 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ ms rise
↘ ms fall
The screen shows good response rates in our tests, but may be too slow for competitive gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 34 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is similar to the average of all tested devices (23.9 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
32.4 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ ms rise
↘ ms fall
The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 27 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (37.8 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: 52 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 15366 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 2500000) Hz was measured.

Considering that this is an IPS panel, viewing-angle stability could be better. When looking at the display from oblique angles, brightness losses can definitely be noticed quite quickly.

Performance - Meets expectations well

Since gaming is already included in the F17's name, the laptop has to prove itself precisely in this field. An Intel Core i9-11900H together with an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 Laptop GPU, and 16 GB of RAM illustrate these ambitions, even though 17-inch laptops often feature even higher-performance hardware. But the F17 is also a gaming device for price-conscious customers, which is why the TUF Gaming will also be available with an RTX 3050 or 3050 Ti in the near future. Likewise, this CPU represents the top configuration, with Core i7 and Core i5 models also available as alternatives.

The MyAsus software theoretically handles all relevant performance and fan profiles. Theoretically, because Asus seems to be using a new software at the moment, and we're pointed to the Asus Armoury Crate program within MyAsus. All relevant settings can actually be found here, but the software is quite cluttered. We set the fan profile to "Windows" for the benchmarks, which hopefully means that Windows gets to decide, resulting in its performance profiles having priority. We set the Windows slider to "Best Performance".

Processor

TDP in the Cinebench multithread test
TDP in the Cinebench multithread test

The Intel Core i9-11900H is an octa-core CPU with cores that run at a base clock speed of 2.5 GHz. All cores can simultaneously run at 4.4 GHz in Turbo mode, and one core alone can reach up to 4.9 GHz. The TDP is theoretically 45 watts, but it can be configured.

Performance is relatively constant in the Cinebench multithread loop. At the beginning of a run, the TDP briefly soars to 92 watts (later only 85 watts), and it drops to about 68 watts after half of a run. The CPU sometimes only manages 80 to 85 watts at the beginning of subsequent runs due to a high core temperature, and the 92 watts only applies to the first couple of runs.

Overall, the i9-11900H is on par with last year's Ryzen 7 4800H found in the Schenker XMG or the TUF A17 when it comes to the Cinebench multithread test. However, performance seems to drop a bit more over time; it's also slightly more erratic and marginally less constant.

On battery power, the F17 only scores 1,358 points instead of the previous 1,700 to 2,000 points, meaning that its CPU performance gets throttled pretty heavily.

DPC latencies

The F17 doesn't get bogged down when opening several browser tabs, but it does when playing our 4K/60 fps YouTube video. There were no dropped frames to complain about at least, but LatencyMon still detected latencies, which means that there might be problems when reproducing real-time audio. The Kernel Mode Driver Framework Runtime is particularly problematic.

Storage

Mass storage consists of a 1 TB NVMe SSD, but the F17 is also available with a smaller 512 GB SSD. This storage drive is ranked 28th in our HDD/SSD Benchmarks article. It achieves good rates in comparison and manages to leave the assembled (budget) competition behind, which is surely a reason for the comparatively good system performance.

Graphics card

Asus has used an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060, but the F17 will soon be available with an RTX 3050 and its Ti variant as well. The TGP of an RTX 3060 ranges from about 60 to 130 watts, which means that its performance is very variable depending on the model. In the TUF Gaming F17, the TGP including Dynamic Boost is 95 watts; therefore, it's placed roughly in the middle of the performance range.

Consequently, the card performs around the expected average level. In most cases, the XMG Pro is an insignificant 3% ahead of our F17, despite its higher TGP of 130 watts. The A17 with its 1660 Ti is beaten by about 25% to 80%.

Running 3DMark 11 again on battery power power only yields 19,609 graphics points instead of the previous 25,793 points when plugged in. In other words, graphics performance is reduced by about 24% when the laptop is on the go.

Gaming performance

The graphics card should be able to run all the latest games smoothly at Full HD resolution and maximum details. In The Witcher 3, the Schenker device only has a lead of about 5% with its higher TGP. The game also runs smoothly in Ultra settings at Full HD resolution and 74 fps. Across all the games that we tested, the RTX 3060 in the F17 performs about 3% to 5% below an average RTX 3060. While the Schenker is about 7% faster, it also has a much higher TGP.
