The ASUS TUF Gaming F17 FX706 leaks with an Intel Core i7-11800H Tiger Lake H45 processor and an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 GPU for €1,799
Currently, ASUS lists the TUF Gaming F17 on its website with Comet Lake-H CPUs and a GeForce GTX 1650 Ti GPU. However, Amazon Italy has revealed, albeit briefly, that ASUS has a Tiger Lake-H45 and RTX 30 refresh planned. It looks like ASUS has re-used the chassis from the current model, which includes a 17.3-inch display and yellow-accented keyboard.
The Core i7-10870H has made way for the Core i7-11800H though, which Intel is yet to announce. While the listing does not reveal any details about said processor, its description confirms that ASUS has paired it with an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 GPU with 6 GB of VRAM. Additionally, the F17 FX706 will be available with at least 16 GB of DDR4 RAM and 1 TB of PCIe storage. The model number to look out for is FX706HM-HX062T, although this may be a European variant rather than a global one.
These components will power a 17.3-inch display that outputs at up to 144 Hz. sRGB colour space coverage may come in at under 65% though, which would make the new F17 unsuitable for content creators unless you have a more colour accurate external monitor. According to Amazon Italy, ASUS intends to price the F17 FX706HM-HX062T at €1,799, including VAT. We imagine that the company will release cheaper variants too, such as Core i5 models or Core i7 ones with less RAM and storage.
