The latest Ryzen mobile APUs have also boosted the TUF Gaming and ROG Zephyrus laptop lineups. The new TUF Gaming FX505DV raises the bar with a 144Hz/3ms display and a GeForce RTX™ 2060 GPU tuned for fast-paced gameplay, and the sleek ROG Zephyrus G GA502 brings an ultraslim form factor and long battery life to a wider audience.

Durability and power unite

Earlier in 2019, TUF Gaming FX505DY was the first adopt AMD’s Picasso platform, combining a Ryzen mobile APU with discrete Radeon graphics and a FreeSync display. TUF Gaming FX505 DD/DT/DU laptops followed, pairing the same processor with GeForce® GTX graphics to maximize gaming performance.

The new TUF Gaming FX505DV is the next step forward. Teaming the latest Ryzen mobile APU with an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 GPU and 144Hz/3ms panel, FX505DV pumps out reliable frame rates that take full advantage of its NanoEdge display. The 144Hz refresh rate makes fast-paced gameplay much smoother than on standard 60Hz displays, and the quick response time keeps the picture sharp at speed, giving players a competitive advantage in esports and FPS gaming. Wide-view technology also ensures consistent colours when viewing the screen at any angle.

FX505DV is paired up with the AMD Ryzen 7 3750H mobile APU. The APU’s quad cores and eight threads offer enough power for everyday multitasking and productivity. Its performance is further bolstered by an efficient cooling system that pairs innovative internal design with on-demand switching that optimizes the system for the task at hand. With a keyboard shortcut, HyperFan lets users adjust system settings to optimize their cooling. Turbo mode pushes fan performance to the max, unleashing the power of FX505DV. Balanced mode optimizes operation to deliver strong performance with lower acoustic levels. Silent mode minimizes fan noise for less demanding tasks, like streaming videos.

Under the hood, the self-cleaning cooling system channels debris out of the laptop through anti-dust tunnels integrated into the fan housings. This preventative measure prevents dust buildup on the heatsink and fans, which is essential to maintaining long-term performance and stability, helping FX505DV live up to its TUF Gaming name.

Like its predecessors, FX505DV is defined by its durability. It meets stringent MIL-STD-810G standards in a range of tests, from basic drops and vibration to extreme temperatures and altitude.
