Higher power limits allow the CPU and GPU to boost higher for longer, squeezing the absolute most performance out of your machine and ensuring you have highest framerates possible.

MUX Switch
AMD SmartAccess Graphics

AMD SmartAccess Graphics technology makes the most of every frame by automating switching between integrated and discrete graphics or gives you full manual control with a dedicated MUX switch.

AMD SmartShift Max

AMD SmartShift Max is a dynamic boosting algorithm trained by machine learning that allows the CPU and GPU to automatically allocate power on the fly.

AMD Smart Access Memory™

AMD Smart Access Memory™ gives the CPU access to the entirety of the GPU’s VRAM rather than small chunks, reducing latency and improving performance.

AMD SmartShift RSR

The AMD SmartShift RSR allows the dedicated GPU to render a frame at a lower resolution, then upscale the frame with the integrated graphics for improved frame rates.

Never lose track of the action thanks to an immersive 16-inch panel with narrow bezels and a huge 90% screen-to-body ratio. Even in frenetic titles, the QHD 240Hz and FHD 165Hz refresh rates will let you keep up with the pros. With AMD FreeSync™ Premium, 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. The QHD panel hits 100% of the DCI-P3 color space and the FHD display covers 100% of sRGB, reproducing colors exactly as the creator intended.

High core count CPUs and modern GPUs create more heat when at full load. The TUF Gaming A16 is equipped to handle its high-power hardware with up to six dedicated heatpipes. The 2023 TUF Gaming A16 keeps its cool in even the most demanding games.

Ambient Cooling


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%.

Four dedicated exhaust vents and a high density heatsink allow the TUF A16 to keep total fan noise under 48dB when the system is in Turbo mode. The A16 stays cool and quiet during even the most intense gaming sessions

They will never see you coming

The TUF Gaming A16 has a new color for 2023, designed to keep you off your enemy’s radar. Inspired by the wastelands of battlefield, Sandstorm is the perfect paintjob for a military-grade laptop. The anodizing process that creates this light tan color provides a finish that’s not only decorative, but durable and corrosion resistant, just like every TUF Gaming machine should be.

These laptops must successfully survive a rigorous battery of MIL-STD-810H* tests. Dependable even in the harshest conditions, the TUF Gaming A16 is more than capable of withstanding the accidental bumps and knocks of everyday life.
