The Asus TUF Gaming A15 is an entry-level budget gaming laptop. The Asus TUF Gaming A15 has been released in two color options: Fortress Gray and Bonfire Black, all flaunting a honeycomb pattern around the middle. This model is the first laptop we are reviewing with an AMD Ryzen Mobile processor 4000 series, which certainly helps to set it apart in the industry. With AMD’s latest 7nm smartphone processors coupled with Nvidia’s GTX 16 series GPUs, the company has revamped its accessible TUF lineup.
Asus Tuf A15 review: Release date and price
This TUF A15 has the new AMD’s CPU 4000 series, which was released January this year (2020).
ASUS TUF Gaming A15 price in India starts at Rs. 60999
A full HD LED Backlit anti-gloss IPS Display, with a screen resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, is supported on Asus TUF Gaming A15 (39.62 cm). With adaptive sync, the display’s refresh rate synchronizes with the GPU’s frame rate to reduce lag, minimize stuttering, and eliminate visual tearing for ultra-smooth and immersive gameplay. Connect an external monitor for master-level multitasking via USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C™ with G-SYNC® enabled DisplayPort™ 1.4, and play 4K Ultra HD movies, videos, and games on big-screen TVs with HDMI 2.0b. It has a 45% NTSC color gamut which brings the Tuf A15 competition to a little downside. It comes with a 60 Hz and 144 Hz refresh rate at such a less price, which is a plus point.
Asus Tuf A15 Processor
As stated in this review, it is its choice of components which include some of the latest hardware from both AMD and Nvidia that has made us especially excited about the Asus TUF A15. The new AMD Ryzen 4000 series is available in the CPU department of the Asus TUF A15. The Asus TUF A15 does not aspire to be a flagship notebook, it’s not exactly AMD mobile Processor flagship (that’ll be Ryzen 9 4900HS). This machine strives to be a combination of value and output, which is why we like Asus’ 4800H option. The AMD Ryzen 5 4600H, pairing 8 GB of DDR4 RAM with Nvidia GTX 1650Ti graphics, came from the Asus TUF A15. It has a 256GB NVMe SSD and a 1TB volume hard disk. The Ryzen 9 4900H CPU, GeForce RTX 2060 GPU, 144Hz Full HD screen, and 1TB SSD plus hard drive are available for uploading. There are various configurations available, and at the time of our analysis, such a smart configuration seems to be inaccessible online. Naturally, the price will be far higher.
The cooling system does well to ensure that the machine doesn’t heat up even during long hours of gaming.

Asus TUF A15 Memory (RAM) Review
The 8 GB RAM is supported for ASUS TUF Gaming FX505. But you can extend your memory to roughly 32 GB. This is possible thanks to a second empty memory slot on the motherboard. ASUS TUF Gaming FX505 has outstanding results without delay on a RAM performance evaluation. It hasn’t stuttered with nearly 18 Chrome tabs and an ongoing movie download. Except with 2 of those browser tabs on high-quality Content on YouTube, it has all run smoothly
Asus TUF A15 KEYBOARD AND TOUCHPAD REVIEW
The TUF A15 from Asus has a full-size keyboard that is well-spaced. The keyboard is RGB enabled, which in this price segment, frankly, is quite an uncommon sight. To add to the gaming vibe, Asus has also used transparent keys for the WASD letter keys. Windows Precision drivers are used on the trackpad, rendering Windows 10 movements smooth. It comes with dedicated left and right buttons to nullify the incidental clicks when having a hard paw. Each key is durable enough to withstand over 20 million presses for superb long-term reliability and precision.This keyboard is preferred by cheap dissertation writers.
Asus TUF A15 PORTS Review
Asus notes that with an extra SSD, this version (but not both) has one empty M.2 slot and that the RAM is all socketed. Users would be able to update capacity and RAM, and even though you don’t have a hatch on the bottom for fast entry, there’s a 48Wh battery, and Asus interestingly doesn’t make any promises as to how long it should work. Our machine came with a 180W charger that was pretty slim but still heavy. It does not allow charging through the USB Type-C interface. Nearly all ports on the left are Gigabit Ethernet, HDMI 2.0b, two USB 3.2 Gen1 ports (5Gbps), one USB 3.2 Gen2 Type-C port (10Gbps and DisplayPort 1.4 output), and a 4.5mm audio socket combo. A single USB 2.0 port and a Kensington lock slot are the only stuff on the right. The SD card slot doesn’t exist, which is disappointing.
The Asus TUF A15 has its hits and misses, despite everything. However, for the amount of money you have to pay out for it, the gaming laptop can offer satisfactory output.
This one not only manages to stay calm but also offers consistent results most of the time when playing video games, unlike other laptops in this section. Thanks to the use of such a tactile keyboard, even daily work feels fantastic. The power button has an embedded LED light to display the device’s status. As for the compromises one has to make, in terms of color accuracy, the monitor is not the highest and the battery life is also less than impressive. The Asus TUF A15 has its hits and misses, despite everything. However, for the amount of money you have to pay out for it, the gaming laptop can offer satisfactory output.
As a gaming laptop, it weighs more than 2kgs. This ensures, once this COVID scenario is in control, your back will hurt as you intend to move the laptop around. The Asus TUF A15 is one of the better gaming laptops you can find in this chapter if that is anything that won’t concern you much.
