ASUS TUF GAMING
TOUGHER THAN STANDARD
Infused with the spirit of The Ultimate Force (TUF), FX505 passes a series of rigorous MIL-STD-810G tests, successfully surviving varying conditions including solar radiation exposure, high altitude, and temperature extremes. It's certified to endure day-to-day use, from accidental knocks to sudden drops on a desk. Durable and stable, FX505 has been pushed to the limit to ensure only the very best for gamers.
Physical shock tests ensure every TUF Gaming laptop resists damage from unexpected drops, knocks, and bumps during shipment and daily use. The reinforced chassis can withstand a force that’s double the normal ASUS standard quality test. In addition, extensive vibration testing ensures all interior parts remain attached and maintain integrity.
WITHSTANDS ENVIRONMENTAL EXTREMES
ASUS engineers amped up environmental testing, subjecting each TUF Gaming laptop to extreme temperatures and humidity cycles, as well as high altitude testing to replicate inflight use or transport via air freight. Solar radiation testing ensures the laptop won’t degrade even after prolonged to direct sunlight.
The new FX505 comes with an aluminum Future Tank cover that features the distinctive Radiating-X design with a complementary sand-blasted finish. The hexagonal design on the underside of the laptop provides additional structural rigidity, completing the laptop’s modern and aggressive lines.
DESKTOP-INSPIRED RGB-BACKLIT KEYBOARD
FX505 has a keyboard that's optimized for gaming, featuring RGB-backlighting across all zones that can be controlled via the TUF Aura Core panel so you can express your own unique style. Exclusive HyperStrike technology ensures more accurate typing and improved ergonomics thanks to a desktop-inspired layout with a highlighted WASD key group, broader space bar, isolated arrow keys, and recognizable gaps between the function keys. In addition, Overstroke technology registers keystrokes faster for precise and effortless control.
FX505 has an extremely durable keyboard with keys that can endure up to 20 million key presses — twice the industry standard. It promises an extended lifespan without compromising accuracy and comfort.
With a layout modeled on gaming desktop keyboards, the keyboard on FX505 gives you precise control. The entire module is designed for the way your fingers are used to typing and playing, with recognizable gaps between the function keys, and isolated arrow keys for easy identification.
Overstroke technology provides each key with 1.8mm travel distance for improved responsiveness. The keys are calibrated to require just 62 gram-force (gf) for activation, and feature an extended overstroke distance for more comfortable typing.
HYPERCOOL TECHNOLOGY IMPROVES DURABILITY
ASUS-exclusive Intelligent Cooling technology comprises of the Anti-Dust Cooling (ADC) system and HyperFan to ensure exceptional cooling during gaming marathons. Furthermore, cooling is also improved by the patented trapezoid-cut lid and intelligent parallel fan placement.
The ADC system has an exclusive internal design that forces dust particles and dirt to exit the chassis through two anti-dust tunnels located at the edges of the fans. This prevents the thermal fins from becoming caked in grime, preserving performance in the long run to improve both system longevity and reliability.
The system automatically adjusts fan speeds according to CPU and GPU temperatures. Switch between Turbo, Balanced, and Silent modes to suit the situation at hand. Turbo mode is the most aggressive setting, providing the highest fan speeds and frequencies to fully exploit the power of FX505. Balanced mode optimizes performance and cooling to lower noise levels under 45dB for gaming, while Silent mode further curbs fan noise and is perfect for surfing the net, getting work done, or watching a movie.
Every part of FX505 serves to improve system stability and efficiency. The dual fans are symmetrically placed to maximize airflow through the system. They pump warm air out the back, where the patented trapezoid-cut lid avoids interference with the exhaust vents, increasing thermal efficiency by up to 25% over traditional designs.
IMMERSIVE DTS SURROUND SOUND
DTS Headphone: X™ technology delivers immersive, high-fidelity 7.1-channel virtual surround sound for theater-quality audio with stereo headsets. Get the drop on enemies with the enhanced spatial awareness that surround sound provides, or enjoy the nuances of layered music as if you were listening in the recording studio. Presets for games, sports, and movies optimize the experience even further, while the built-in equalizer offers additional fine-tuning.
Get ready for some serious multitasking — FX505 pairs its processor with up to 32GB of dual-channel DDR4 2666MHz memory for improved performance and energy efficiency.
I/O PORTS WITHIN EASY REACH
FX505 features a host of I/O ports including a single USB 2.0 and two USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-A ports for your gaming peripherals, as well as HDMI 2.0 to connect to an external display. All ports are situated on the left side of the laptop so there’s nothing to interfere with right-handed mousing.
