There’s a new booth that debuted in COMPUTEX and it’s part of the ASUS family. TUF (The Ultimate Force) Gaming was originally the branding of gaming motherboards that are more affordable than their ROG counterparts. As more and more people are starting their interests in gaming whether by building their first PC or buying their first gaming laptop, the TUF Gaming series would address this need to provide reliable and affordable gaming laptops, accessories and peripherals to end-users. The TUF Gaming COMPUTEX booth occupies a small portion of the ASUS booth which is opposite ROG’s.
The FX504 is the first gaming laptop under the TUF Gaming line. It has a 15.6 inch screen with 120Hz refresh rate, equipped with the latest gen Intel Core i7-8750HQ processor and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti graphics, all packed into a chassis measuring an impressively slim 2.5cm and weighing just 2.3kg. Its Anti-Dust Cooling system provides the necessary cooling for graphically-intense gaming sessions, and prolongs the lifespan of the machine by expelling harmful dust particles and dirt. I’m currently reviewing the FX504 (with GTX 1050) and will be posting my review in a week or two after COMPUTEX. Watch out for that!
