ASUS TUF Gaming A15 FA506II-AS53 Review And Specification

One of the most interesting laptop lines on the market is the Asus TUF Gaming A15, and the FA506II-AS53 model we're examining combines AMD and Nvidia components to offer gamers loads of power at a competitive price. It will be interesting to observe how the TUF A15 reconciles rival houses with its AMD Ryzen 5 4600H engine and Intel GTX 1650 Ti graphics.

In order to provide greater value to customers who need a laptop that can play the newest games but are not ready to spend a fortune on hardware, Asus has been utilizing a distinctive but recently modern method.

On the other hand, it has a rather standard appearance for a gaming laptop, without exciting design elements like its Zephyrus brother, which offers plenty of power in a small size. It also lacks the greatest and most expensive components needed to compete with the best gaming PCs in terms of performance.

Instead, the Asus TUF A15's ability to deliver great productivity performance and just enough power for gaming without doing irreparable harm to your wallet excites us.

Asus TUF Gaming A15 design

The A15 FA506II-AS53 is a large, clunky device that is nothing like the ROG Zephyrus line of Asus laptops, but that's part of the appeal. We are accustomed to TUF brand products having designs that prioritize build quality and durability.

It's undeniably a design that emphasizes the status as a gaming device, but it's not absolutely excessive either. You should also give it credit for being the ideal size for portability. Fortress Gray, which is the color of our test vehicle, and Bonfire Black are the two available colors for the chassis. 

Keyboard & Touchpad

There are even more design options to entice gamers when you lift the top. There is no question that this is a gaming laptop thanks to the thoughtful RGB lighting for the keys and the translucent illumination of the WASD keys, which are really crucial.

The military-grade design is undoubtedly attractive and quite practical. The laptop is given additional protection from daily bumps and jolts, and the machine's base has a honeycomb shape that prevents the laptop from sliding about. Cells in the structure house cooling vents.

Display & Ports

With a hefty design, you have room for many connectors, including an Ethernet port, HDMI, two normal USB ports, and a USB-C port on the left side, along with a power plug for the power supply, and another standard USB on the right side.

It's a good option, and you shouldn't need an adapter for any of your peripherals to work with it. An adapter is quite helpful for a gaming laptop because it provides more dependable network speeds.

The 15.6-inch, 1080p, 144Hz screen is a fantastic size and further enhances the TUF Gaming A15's gaming credentials. Even so, there is a version available that only supports a 60Hz refresh rate; all other features are unaffected.

Asus FA506II-AS53 performance

As we stated at the outset of our review, we were particularly intrigued by the Asus TUF A15's selection of components, which comprises the most recent AMD and Nvidia hardware.

The FA506II-AS53's brand-new AMD Ryzen 5 4600H serves as the processor. The Ryzen 9 4900HS presently holds the distinction of AMD's top-tier mobile processor, but the TUF A15 isn't designed to compete with that model. All we can say with certainty is that it aims to be a cheap computer that provides a balance of performance and value, which is why we enjoy the 4600H's selection.

With 8GB and a 512GB SSD, you have a powerful machine that can handle most (if not all) of your computing needs, whether it be media editing or playing the newest games in 1080p. This chip easily delivers on both productivity tasks and gaming, with 6 cores and 12 threads and a maximum boost clock of 4.0GHz.

The GPU for this is an Nvidia GTX 1650 Ti. Once more, this isn't a flagship GPU (you have the RTX 30 Series), but it performs admirably at 1080p, making it a great option for this kind of gaming laptop. It is one of Nvidia's most reasonably priced GPUs while still providing excellent performance, and with 4GB DDR6 memory, it is a wise choice for a laptop whose price needs to be kept low.

Gaming & Graphics

The TUF FA506II-AS53 stands out as a powerful gaming laptop, allowing you to play contemporary games at 1080p and medium settings thanks to its GeForce GTX 1650 Ti GPU (4GB) in tow. The GTX 1650 Ti graphics card is the entry-level model of Nvidia's 2019 gaming GPUs, which also include the Turing-based RTX 20-Series models. Raytracing and Tensor cores are absent from the GTX 1650 Ti, in contrast to its more expensive brothers (RTX 3070 & RTX 3080).

Even so, it performs better than the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti graphics cards from last year. Far Cry New Dawn produces 61 frames per second when played at high settings and 1080p resolution, however the same game produces 63 frames per second when played at medium settings. As you increase the settings to ultra, you inevitably see pixel loss, with a maximum frame rate of 55 fps.

The TUF A15 renders Hitman 3 at 71 frames per second at the same settings, which are a combination of medium and high settings at 1080p. That's a little bit better for a budget gaming laptop because it surpasses the 37-fps average.

A Battery's Life

When it comes to battery life, gaming laptops are seldom outstanding, and the Asus TUF FA506II-AS53 we're examining isn't exceptional either. Under typical use, which includes continuous web browsing and watching videos at 150 nits brightness, the battery lasts slightly over 6 hours and 56 minutes. The Acer Nitro 5 Spin leads the pack with a playtime of 7 hours and 11 minutes, which is longer than the entry-level gaming average of 4: 38 minutes.
