BRAND NEW DESIGN

The TUF Gaming chassis has been redesigned for 2022, and is 4.5% smaller than last year’s models. The TUF logo has been reimagined as well, with both embossed and laser-sculpted versions. Despite this size reduction, the brand new 2022 TUF Gaming A17 still houses a large touchpad with anime-inspired accents and four-way indicators.

GET MORE WITH MUX

MUX Switch
On Average 5-10% Better Performance

Modern gaming laptops use powerful, dedicated graphics chips for high performance—but most route those frames through the CPU's integrated graphics before reaching the display. This offers better battery life, but prevents your GPU from giving its absolute best performance. So we're bringing a MUX switch to all 2022 TUF laptops. For competitive games, you can switch to a direct GPU mode that reduces latency and boosts performance by an average of 5-10%.

BLOW AWAY
THE COMPETITION

High core count CPUs create more heat when at full load. The TUF Gaming A17 is equipped to handle its high-power CPU with a pair of 84-blade Arc Flow Fans™. Our new variable thickness design has the dual benefit of increasing pressure while reducing turbulence, improving cooling performance without extra noise. When paired with up to four exhaust vents and five dedicated heatpipes, the 2022 TUF Gaming A17 keeps its cool in even the most demanding games.

Up to 5 Heatpipes

Arc Flow Fans™

Slim chassis leave little room for cooling, so we enhanced every aspect of the Arc Flow fans™. Each one features 84 blades that vary in thickness from base to tip to maximize airflow, and the blades are capped by a special aerodynamic wave pattern that minimizes turbulence and noise. Steady, evenly regulated airflow ensures greater reliability over time. The fans are made of a special liquid-crystal polymer that’s strong enough to spin at high RPMs even at ultrathin sizes, enabling our highest blade density and improving airflow by up to 13%.

NEVER MISS A MOMENT

Keep up with the pros thanks to a FHD 144Hz panel. With Adaptive-Sync, the display’s refresh rate synchronizes with the GPU’s output to reduce lag, minimize stuttering, and eliminate visual tearing for ultra-smooth and lifelike gameplay. Packed into an impressive 80% screen-to-body frame, videos and games will be even more immersive without sacrificing portability

MILITARY GRADE TOUGHNESS

In order to earn the TUF Gaming name, these laptops must successfully survive a rigorous battery of MIL-STD-810H tests. Test devices are exposed to drops, vibration, humidity, and extreme temperatures to ensure reliability. Dependable even in the harshest conditions, the A17 is more than capable of withstanding the accidental bumps and knocks of everyday life.
