  • - Hey guys, this is Austin,

  • and welcome to windy Las Vegas,

  • of course, the natural home of all our laptop content.

  • Today I wanna take a look at this, the ASUS TUF FX505.

  • So the TUF line for ASUS

  • is a little bit more of a budget gaming line,

  • and at least when you look at this on paper,

  • it is incredibly impressive.

  • For $700, what you're getting here is an all-AMD laptop.

  • That means we have the latest Ryzen processors,

  • Radeon graphics, and the other basics

  • are definitely checked, eight gigs of RAM,

  • standard SSD, decent 1080p display.

  • Now when it comes to the hardware,

  • it is very clear that ASUS spent their budget

  • on the internals and not on the chassis,

  • and that's not really a bad thing.

  • It is all made out of plastic,

  • and it feels reasonably sturdy,

  • but it's basically exactly what you expect

  • at this kind of price point.

  • The keyboard is okay.

  • It's a little bit mushier than I'd like,

  • although it does have backlighting,

  • and the touchpad is okay.

  • It is very, very plasticky

  • and sometimes the mechanism gets a little bit crunchy,

  • but again, 700 bucks, it's really not a big deal.

  • The port selection is definitely minimal.

  • So we have three USB-A ports, two of which are 3.0,

  • but one of which weirdly is 2.0,

  • as well as HDMI, as well as Ethernet.

  • Now that's fine, but it would definitely be nice

  • to see something like USB-C onboard,

  • although I will give them props,

  • and on top of Ethernet you do have

  • a very decent Wi-Fi solution on this guy.

  • The screen is decent.

  • So it's a little bit dimmer than I'd like,

  • but importantly it does have FreeSync

  • thanks to this being a full AMD laptop.

  • Now the only downside here is that

  • it only runs between 40 to 60 hertz.

  • Now when I originally saw this laptop,

  • AMD showed it to me with a 120 hertz option,

  • (car engine accelerating) that sounds cool.

  • However, this model only has a 60 hertz display.

  • However, FreeSync is definitely a good thing

  • especially at this kind of budget.

  • This is the first laptop we've had in

  • that has the brand-new second-generation Ryzen Mobile.

  • Now this is not a major advantage over the last generation.

  • It does shrink it down to a 12-nanometer process,

  • some slight changes.

  • Realistically, they're only promising about

  • a 7% performance increase.

  • Now this does (laughing),

  • it's so windy, man!

  • Sounds like there's a hurricane behind us.

  • Now this does take advantage of one of the new

  • H-Series Ryzen processors

  • which does bump the TDP from 15 to 35 watts.

  • Now in theory that should help performance,

  • especially in gaming.

  • However, when you run it through Geekbench,

  • you won't see any kind of major difference

  • between previous Ryzen processors.

  • Big reason for that is that this is only outfitted

  • with a single DIMM of slow eight gigabyte DDR4 RAM.

  • Really, Ryzen does come alive

  • when you give it very fast dual channel memory,

  • which is definitely part of the performance bottleneck here.

  • If that's not enough for you, though,

  • there are a mere 11 screws on the bottom

  • to get access to a little bit of expansion.

  • Okay, so pop this off and the first thing we'll see

  • is we do have a spare 2 1/2-inch drive bay,

  • so you can add a hard drive or an SSD.

  • And we also have, if I flip this up,

  • yeah, an extra DIMM slot.

  • So by default it's only eight gigs,

  • but you can upgrade to 16 pretty easy.

  • We have our NVMe SSD,

  • as well as what seems to be decent cooling.

  • Just a couple of heat pipes here.

  • Nothing too crazy but the main thing is

  • you do have that expandability

  • with the 2 1/2-inch drive bay.

  • It's not that difficult to, say,

  • add a little bit of extra RAM,

  • which you probably should because, I mean,

  • eight is fine, but 16 is much more comfortable.

  • What really makes this a gaming laptop is the GPU.

  • This uses a Radeon RX 560X

  • very similar to the Acer that we recently took a look at.

  • It's totally respectable.

  • You're able to play most games on Medium settings at 1080p

  • such as Overwatch as well as Apex Legends.

  • Now, no, you won't be able to crank out

  • Ultra settings in a lot of games,

  • but again, considering the price,

  • this is very much par for the course.

  • It's somewhere in the neighborhood of

  • what you would expect out of a GTX 1050.

  • Now speaking of that Acer video,

  • one of our biggest issues with it

  • was the fact that were some major problems

  • with updating drivers.

  • Thankfully that has been resolved.

  • However, the driver issues have returned

  • in a different form.

  • My dedicated GPU on this just disappears sometimes.

  • Now I don't know if this is some weird power setting

  • that I can't find, but sometimes,

  • especially when this computer sits idle

  • for 30, 45 minutes or so,

  • the dedicated GPU just disappears.

  • It's not in Task Manager, it's not in Radeon Settings.

  • The only way I've found to actually fix that

  • is to restart the computer.

  • Now it's not the end of the world

  • because it does of course default

  • to the integrated Vega graphics,

  • which to be fair are actually quite a bit better

  • than what you will find on most other gaming laptops,

  • but still, when you talk about dedicated graphics

  • just disappearing sometimes,

  • it gives me some pause to say that,

  • oh yeah, you should definitely go out

  • and spend your $700 on a laptop like this.

  • The hardware is there, but the driver support

  • just gives me a little of pause before I recommend it.

  • The FX505 is a perfectly competent gaming laptop.

  • Now when you consider the price,

  • the little issues I found with the hardware

  • really aren't that big of a deal,

  • and the performance definitely is there.

  • Really, my main issue is the continued flakiness

  • of those AMD drivers.

  • It's not a deal breaker,

  • but they can and should be a lot better.
