Features of ASUS TUF FA506 Series Gaming Laptop
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 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.
