ASUS TUF Gaming FX505 / FX705 Key Features

 Performance

The TUF Gaming FX505 is powered by up to the Intel Core i7-8750H CPU, which has 6 cores and 12 threads, greatly improving performance over the previous generation. It also comes with up to an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 GPU, up to 32 GB of DDR4-2666 RAM, a 512 GB PCIe SSD  and a 1 TB FireCuda solid-state hybrid drive (SSHD).

NanoEdge Display

The FX505 features a NanoEdge display, which features significantly slimmer side bezels. This allows for a more immersive gaming experience, and a reduced size. The display has a Full HD resolution of 1920 x 1080, and a refresh rate of 144 Hz. It also boasts full sRGB coverage, wide viewing angles and a matte non-reflective coating.

ASUS TUF Gaming FX505 Red Matter

Tough Gaming Keyboard

The keyboard has 1.8 mm of key travel, and the exclusive ASUS Overstroke technology that raises the actuation point higher in the stroke to improve responsiveness. The key caps are also dished, with isolated arrow, and defined gaps for the function keys.

Backlighting is offered in either customizable RGB (Gold Steel), or a red glow that matches the chassis accents of the Red Fusion and Red Matter variants.

Immersive Audio

Audio also plays an important role in delivering high-quality, immersive gaming experiences. DTS Headphone:X technology is integrated so that over headphones or speakers, preset profiles for games, movies, music, and sports can produce tailored audio experiences for every situation.

ASUS TUF Gaming FX505 Red Fusion

Fast WAN + LAN

The TUF Gaming FX505 comes with a Gigabit Ethernet port for no-compromise gamers, as well as Intel’s latest 2×2 MIMO 802.11ac Wave 2 WiFi, capable of making connections at speeds of up to 1.73Gbps to compatible routers.

TUF and built to last

The TUF Gaming FX505 is built to withstand abuse. It has been put through rigorous quality and durability tests that exceed industry standards, passing even the demanding military-grade MIL-STD-810G test for sudden jolts. The HyperStrike keyboard uses switches rated for 20 million key presses, while the reinforced chassis and hexagonal design on the bottom add structural rigidity to make it even sturdier.

Superior and long-lasting cooling

[adrotate group=”2″]

The TUF Gaming FX505 features the HyperCool system, with independent fans and heatsinks to cool the CPU and GPU separately.

The design also places the fans directly underneath the keyboard to help remove heat, keeping the keyboard cool and comfortable during extended gameplay sessions. The patented trapezoid-cut lid allows more air to be ejected from the rear, improving cooling performance by up to 25% over other designs.

Cooling performance can degrade over time, with dust and particle build-up impeding airflow through thermal fin. So patented ASUS dust tunnels help to guide dust and particles off to a separate chamber to be ejected from the system, keeping the thermal fins clear for stable long-term cooling performance.
