Laptop Review: Asus TUF Gaming A17 FA706IH-AU016T

Asus TUF Gaming A17 FA706IH-AU016T

The Asus TUF Gaming A17 FA706IH-AU016T is powered by the 6 core AMD Ryzen 5 4600H processor and a GTX 1650Ti with 4 GB of VRAM. The display here is the 120Hz FHD (1920x1080p) panel. Other specs include 8 GB RAM and 512GB SSD. This is a great laptop if you are a professional creator and engineers with decent gaming this is a great laptop.

  • Great Options For Upgradability (2x SO-DIMM Slots | 2x M.2 Slot | 1x 2.5 Inch SATA Slot)
  • Fast 120Hz Display
  • Great Entry Level CPU
  • Decent Port Selection

CONS:
  • Below-average battery
  • 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 FA706IH-AU016T 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.

  • 2x SO-DIMM Slots
  • 2x M.2 Slots
  • 2.5 Inch SATA bay
  • WLAN module
  • 48 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 FA706IH-AU016T  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.

Performance

The Asus TUF Gaming A17 FA706IH-AU016T is powered by the AMD Ryzen 5 4600H which is slightly more powerful than the i7 9750H. The 4600H should be able to handle most of your active workloads of Photo and Video editing or any other CPU-intensive task the only bottleneck here being the 8GB of RAM which you can easily upgrade. The GTX 1650, on the other hand, is an entry-level GPU with limited potential for GPU intensive tasks such as 3D rendering and Gaming. Now compared to the previous GTX 1650 is about 40 percent more powerful than GTX 1050ti and is about 15 percent slower when compared to GTX 1060. The RAM and storage of the Asus TUF Gaming A17 FA706IH-AU016T are configured at 8GB and 512 SSD. The 8GB DDR4 RAM runs in single-channel at 3200 there are 2x SO-DIMM slots one occupied and one available. The max limit for memory support here is 32 GB. The storage here occupies 1 of the 2 M.2 Slots with 512GB M.2 NVMe SSD and one empty 2.5-inch SATA slot.
