Laptop Review: ASUS TUF Gaming A17 FA706IU-H7015T

Laptop Review: ASUS TUF Gaming A17 FA706IU-H7015T

ASUS TUF Gaming A17 FA706IU-H7015T

The Asus TUF Gaming A17 FA706IU-H7015T is powered by the 8 core AMD Ryzen 7 4800H processor and a GTX 1660Ti with 6GB of VRAM. The display here is the 120Hz FHD (1920x1080p) panel. Other specs include 16GB RAM and 1TB SSD. This is an excellent laptop if you are a professional creator and engineer or a gamer the issue being its poor display.

PROS:
  • Great Options For Upgradability (2x SO-DIMM Slots | 2x M.2 Slot)
  • Fast 120Hz Display
  • Powerful 8 Core CPU
  • Decent Port Selection
  • Large 90 Watt Hour Batter

CONS:
  • Poor Colour Coverage
  • No SD Card Reader
  • Small Arrow Keys
  • No Finger-Print Scanner
  • Heavy

Design and Ports

The chassis of the Asus TUF Gaming A17 FA706IU-H7015T is entirely made out of plastic and has a smooth grey finish and it looks quite good. It has a tuff design except for the lid which wobbles a little this may be due to the thin 7mm thin bezels around the display. The bottom panel can be removed once you remove the 11 Philips head screws. Here you can find the following. The Asus TUF Gaming A17 FA706IU-H7015T trades its 2.5 inch SATA bay for a larger battery and I have to say it’s a good trade-off.

  • 2x SO-DIMM Slots
  • 2x M.2 Slots
  • WLAN module
  • 90 Watt Hour battery

Ports: 

  • USB 2.0 Type-A
  • Gigabit RJ-45
  • HDMI 2.0b
  • 2x USB 3.0 Type-A
  • USB Type-C 3.2 Gen. 2
  • SD Card Reader
  • 3.5 mm Combo Audio Jack

Keyboard and Trackpad

The Asus TUF Gaming A17 FA706IU-H7015T  has a chicklet style backlit keyboard. The WASD keys are transparent and get a little extra RGB backlight. Considering its size Asus could have gone for bigger arrow keys. The trackpad here is also a rather small one (10.9 x 5.9 cm) but it has a smooth matte surface though it lacks a little precision.

Overall Performance: ASUS TUF Gaming A17 FA706IU-H7015T

The following configuration is great for almost any workload be it photo editing, video editing, animation, Rendering, or gaming. The CPU here is extremely powerful Ryzen 7 4800H is significantly faster than the i7 10750H and is comparable to i9 9980HK in terms of performance. The GPU on the other hand is an upper midrange GTX 1660Ti with  GB of dedicated graphics memory though it is true that you may not be as powerful as its 20 series RTX counterparts however I don’t think so there is any game that would be unplayable.  The 16GB of RAM and 1 TB SSD of storage should be enough for 97 percent of the users and you can also add storage very easily on this laptop.

Display: 17.3 Inch 120Hz FHD (BOE NV173FHM-NX1)
