Features of ASUS TUF FA506 Series Gaming Laptop

Please Note : The features mentioned below may vary for the model across the region. Please refer Product specifications above for the Processor, Storage, Graphics, etc in the specific model.

The TUF Gaming series from Asus is mainly aimed for those that want a combination of processing power and gaming performance, while not necessarily flexing on having the latest and greatest in design and cooling technology found on most modern gaming laptops. However, at AED 5,499, the new TUF Gaming A15 FA506I laptop demands to know if a sleek design is necessary if you could save a couple of thousand for an equally great performance?

Yes, the A15 isn’t the sleekest laptop on the market, but its fantastic overall performance thanks to AMD’s new top-end Ryzen processor and NVIDIA RTX 2060, beefy battery life, surprisingly great speakers and excellent heat management, makes it one most versatile gaming laptops you can buy right now.

 

Design and Features:

 

The A15 is a relatively simple looking laptop, with the redesigned lid featuring the winged TUF logo in a slightly darker gray than the single tone ‘Fortress Gray’ color covering it. In fact, the only bit of elaborate design on the body is the dark orange vents below the lid, and the honeycomb design on the back which provides additional grip and better airflow.

The chassis largely consists of hard plastic than the fancy brushed aluminum, unibody design you would find on more premium gaming laptops. But it doesn’t feel cheap or flimsy to the touch, and being a TUF product, it is built to last a while. Asus claims that the chassis has been tested through the MIL-STD-810H US military standard for ruggedness and can take a few falls and bruises if necessary. I have not personally put that to the test – at least not intentionally – but the laptop’s solid and robust build doesn’t make me doubt the fact.

 

Unlike the SCAR or the Zephyrus lineup, the A15 is a chunky device (at least by modern standards) and weighs in around 2.3kgs, so it isn’t an all-day portable device that you could carry around without giving your shoulders a workout. It is slim enough to fit in a backpack, however, just don’t expect the same compactness as an Ultrabook.

 

In terms ports, it’s a standard affair – you have 2x USB 3.0 ports, 1x USB 2.0 port, 1x USB Type-C port (which also doubles a G-Sync enabled DisplayPort), 1x HDMI port, 1x LAN port, and a single 3.5mm headphone jack that combines both sound and mic inputs. I do find the lack of a memory card reader a bit of a drawback considering the laptop is aimed towards productivity, but it’s nothing an external reader can’t solve provided you aren’t using all of the USB ports.

Display

The A15 features a 15” 1080p 144Hz display with Adaptive Sync capabilities. It is not the most vibrant screen I have seen on a laptop, but it does the job fairly well with reasonably punchy overall brightness and a balanced color palette.

 

The Adaptive Sync is a mediocre affair, however, mostly because I couldn’t find the option in the NVIDIA Control Panel to turn it on. There are very few games that support adaptive sync themselves, so I resorted to using the old school V-Sync to overcome screen tearing in most games. That’s rather unfortunate for a machine that’s far more capable than just 60fps, but this is where some of the budget cuts are evident.

The display is housed around slightly chunky bezels, which Asus says have been slimmed down than the previous models. They aren’t too intrusive and gives way to whatever media you are consuming. The screen is sufficiently speedy, with little to no blurring or ghosting present. The contrast and black levels are well balanced too, while the color showed no hints of banding which is excellent if you want to perform basic image editing on the system.

Keyboard

Asus has managed to cram in a full-sized keyboard on the A15, and I always prefer having that over any other keyboard variant that comes on a laptop. Of course, the A15 has the space to accommodate it considering it doesn’t have to be all ‘slim and sleek’ unlike other models. It also makes sense having it on a laptop that is aimed at productivity as typing and crunching numbers on a spacious keyboard is far easier.

The A15’s keyboard is also extremely comfortable to use. The chicklet-style keys have a nice press to them and gives off a satisfying click while typing. I have used it to type several articles and really enjoyed how quick and reliable the keys have been throughout. It is easily one of the best keyboards I have used on laptop for a long bit.

 

The keys are paired with customizable RGB lighting, with adjustable brightness for nighttime play. The lighting is uniform across the board, so every key is easily readable in the dark. I also like the transparent accent on the WASD key as it adds a touch of oomph to the overall design of the keyboard and keeps it from looking too generic.

Speakers

Asus says that the two speakers on the A15 puts out “1.8x more sound with 2.7x deeper bass” than the previous generation of the laptop, and while I cannot attest to that, the speakers do sound nice. They are entirely serviceable for watching movie trailers, or YouTube videos (and maybe even casual music listening) as they produce sufficient volume and clarity on the vocals and mids. The bass, however, is weak and doesn’t bring the required punch to support the audio as it should. So, I wouldn’t recommend them for any serious media consumption, such as for gaming or watching a movie.

The speakers also support DTS:X Ultra audio technology for “7.1 channel virtual surround sound” and as expected, it has little to no effect on the audio performance. These two tiny laptop speakers just don’t have the range to increase their spatial capability, and so no surround sound technology will work on them.

Battery Life

The A15 uses a 48W battery and delivers excellent battery life in its category. On battery, the laptop managed to pump out at least two hours of gaming, which is surprising, and truly excellent. For lightweight work, such as websurfing, typing articles, watching few YouTube videos, and performing some light video rendering, the laptop came just short of five hours. This was with 50% brightness on the display, using 100% speaker volume, and the RGB on the keyboard. I suppose you can stretch the battery life a bit more with further concessions, but it probably won’t be by much.

Heat and Fan Noise

One of the biggest problems that plagues most modern gaming laptops is not the heat itself, but where the heat is generally collected. Usually, it is either around the WASD key area or near the palm rest, neither of which are ideal. This results in sweaty hands and discomfort after a few hours of use. The A15 avoids this issue completely by collecting the heat towards the upper parts of the laptop, where you won’t be placing your hands anyway. In my nearly two weeks of use, I never noticed any warm areas on the laptop while gaming or typing, which clearly showcases the effective cooling system at play here.

 

The laptop uses multiple heat pipes and three heatsinks, according to Asus, which draws the heat away from the components, while the self-cleaning fans keeps the airflow moving around them. It doesn’t use Asus’ new thermal cooling technology that is now available on their high-end gaming laptops, but they seem to be doing their job rather well and that’s okay in my books.

Fan noise, however, is still an issue while gaming. There are four modes available on the laptop when it comes to temperature management – Windows, Silent, Performance, and Turbo. If you are using the laptop causally for web surfing and such, the Silent mode is preferable as it keeps the laptop nice and cool without any noticeable fan noise. However, when it comes to gaming, the Turbo mode is the way to go (as evident in the benchmark scores below) and that’s when the fans go into an overdrive. Even in Performance mode, which tries to keep the fan noise under 40dB, it still sounds like a small drone about to take off.

Performance

While A15’s AMD Ryzen 7 4800H isn’t quite top of the range when it comes AMD processors - the honor goes to 4900HS – the difference between them isn’t much when it comes to peak clock speed. Not that it has any major effect on gaming performance all that much as games are still heavily dependent on GPU power. Still, the 8 cores on the 4800H are incredibly powerful and offer robust performance for a variety of CPU intensive tasks be it image editing, zipping large files or video rendering. It helps that the laptop also packs in a speedy nVMe SSD that can keep up with the processor and offer reliable throughout put.
