The new ASUS TUF Gaming laptops come with the latest NVIDIA GeForce RTX 40 series GPUs
ASUS has announced new TUF Gaming laptops at CES 2023, outfitted with the latest Intel 13th Gen or AMD Ryzen 9 Zen 4 processors, and NVIDIA’s blazing-fast GeForce RTX 40 series GPUs.
The TUF Gaming F15 and F17 laptops can be equipped with up to an Intel Core i9-13900H chip, a powerful 14-core processor that can boost up to 5.4GHz on a single core. The A15 and A17 are very similar, with the main difference being their AMD’s new Ryzen Zen 4 mobile processors.
ASUS says both the A- and F-series laptops are designed for high frame rates in modern games, even at 1440p. There is also a dedicated MUX switch, which lets the laptop bypass integrated graphics and ensures that it is running off the NVIDIA card, and NVIDIA Advanced Optimus.
There is also an empty M.2 NVMe PCIe Gen4 SSD slot, in case you want to add extra storage.
To keep the laptop cool, the dual Arc Flow Fans feature an 84-blade design, with blades that taper down to just 0.1 mm to reduce turbulence. These fans provide up to 13% more airflow than their predecessors and are quieter than last year’s design, says ASUS.
Finally, there is the TUF Gaming A16 Advantage Edition, an all-AMD powerhouse that packs a Ryzen 9 Zen 4 chip and up to a Radeon RDNA3 GPU.
With slimmer bezels, a 90% screen-to-body ratio, and up to a QHD resolution with 240Hz refresh rate, it is made for gamers who want to get the most out of their system.
It has the same 84-blade Arc Flow fans and up to seven heat pipes, in addition to four exhaust vents to push heat out.
On top of that, the A16 boasts support for USB4, up to 2TB of storage, and DDR5 4,800MHz RAM. All RAM and storage slots are easily accessible for quick upgrades. You also get a large 90Wh battery and support for USB-C Power Delivery.
Details about local availability, configurations, and pricing will be announced later.
