REDUCED FALL DAMAGE
Drop tests ensure every TUF Gaming laptop can resist damage from unexpected falls, knocks, and bumps during shipment and daily use. To meet MIL-STD-810H standards, devices are tested to survive short falls. Slip the F17 into your backpack, sling it over your shoulder, and carry it with you everywhere with less stress and worry.

*Please refer to the shock bench handling test, method 516.8, procedure VI for the exact test conditions.
TRAVEL EASY
Any time you carry your device into planes, trains, or cars, it experiences varying levels of vibration that can dislodge or damage internal components. Extensive vibration testing ensures that every part of your TUF Gaming laptop can withstand the rigors of travel without shifting around or losing functionality.

*Please refer to the vibration test, method 514.8 for the exact test conditions.
COOL UNDER FIRE
Whether you’re trekking out across the desert or sunning at the beach, scorching heat testing ensures that you can always keep your TUF Gaming laptop close at hand. Capable of operating in temperatures up to 49°C for several days at a time, these devices can definitely handle the heat.

*Please refer to the high temperature operational test, method 501.7, procedure II for the exact test conditions.
SERIOUS CHILL
Even in biting cold temperatures as low as -32°C, TUF Gaming laptops keep running. This incredible resilience means they can be taken through some of the harshest, freezing environments on the planet and maintain their effectiveness throughout the journey.

Stream and video chat anywhere
Our integrated webcam makes it more convenient to stream and create content on the go. Traditional cameras use either 2DNR technology that analyzes individual frames to correct noise, or 3DNR technology that analyzes frames in sequence to improve overall fidelity. Our webcams use a blend of 2DNR and 3DNR technology, reducing noise for images across sequences to get the best of both worlds.
CLOSE
Heat Dissipation
Efficient heat redistribution enables faster dissipation, minimizing thermal throttling. The TUF Gaming F17’s tailored system of four heatpipes and three heatsinks absorbs warmth from the CPU and GPU transfers it away. An extended heat spreader on the CPU further helps keep the processor at optimum temperatures for reliable performance, even under serious stress.
Self-Cleaning Cooling 2.0
Two anti-dust tunnels located at the edges of the fans catch incoming dust and dirt particles and channel them back out of the chassis. An updated design shortens the tunnels to create more space for airflow, increasing fan performance up to 15% over the previous generation. These measures improve overall system stability by preventing build-up that can compromise the performance of internal cooling components. Self-cleaning cooling 2.0 ensures long-term system reliability that truly lives up to the TUF name.
83-Blade LCP Fans
Maximize your airflow with two 83-Blade fans. Carefully shaped intake shrouds use curved edges and raised guides to help the fans draw in more air. Once the air’s inside, it’s blasted toward the heatsinks by 83 0.25mm blades that are 55% thinner than conventional designs, yet strong enough to spin at high RPMs. These powerful fans amplify airflow up to 10% to keep your system cool.

With 0dB Technology, the fans switch off completely when CPU and GPU temperatures are below 60°C in the Silent operating mode. This makes cooling truly silent under light workloads. If CPU or GPU temperatures increase, the fans automatically switch on again.
Scenario Profiles
Scenario Profiles automatically change operating modes to optimize performance and acoustics for different games and applications. Turbo mode uses the highest fan speed and clocks to sustain maximum speed, Performance mode adjusts the clocks and cooling to lower noise levels for gaming, and Silent mode runs even quieter for lighter work and entertainment. You can customize Scenario Profiles to seamlessly switch modes based on your preferences, or use a keyboard shortcut to change modes manually.
