Asus launches Ryzen 4000 Powered TUF Gaming Laptops in India

Asus TUF Gaming Laptops

Good news for Gamers as Asus has brought new powerful monsters powered by the Ryzen 4000 series processors.

The new Ryzen 4000 series offers an incredible performance jump especially in the multi-core performance Vs the Intel 10th Gen processors.

The Ryzen 4000 processors are made from the cutting-edge 14 Nm manufacturing process, whereas Intel is still using the 14 Nm manufacturing process with the 10th gen of processors.

Another big upgrade with the Ryzen processors is low power consumption and heat, allowing for superior sustained performance and higher battery life.

Asus has launched 2 laptops with various hardware combinations - Asus TUF Gaming A15 (15 Inch Laptops) and Asus TUF Gaming A17 - 17-inch gaming laptops.

Both the laptops are powered by AMD Ryzen processors and have Nvidia Graphics cards.

Price and Availability for Asus TUF laptops

The Asus TUF A15 comes in two color options - Bonfire Black and Fortress Grey. The bonfire black version starts from Rs. 60,990 and is available on Amazon, Reliance Digital, and other offline computer stores. The fortress grey variant starts at Rs. 62,990 and is available on Amazon.

There are two models for the A15 - FA506 and the FA566 launched by the company.

Asus has also launched two desktops for gamers and creators - ROG GA15 and ROG GA35, starting from Rs. 65,990.

Let’s check out the detailed specs and features of both Asus A15 and A17.

Asus TUF Gaming A15

Let’s first talk about the performance


Asus TUF Gaming A15 comes with 3 Ryzen processor options. The most powerful is the top of the line Ryzen 9 4900H that comes with 8 cores and up to 4.4 GHz clock speed.

  • AMD® Ryzen 9 4900H Processor, 8 Cores, Clock Speed of 3.0 GHz (8 MB Cache, up to 4.4 GHz)
  • AMD Ryzen 7 4800H Processor, 8 Cores, Clock Speed of 2.9 GHz (8 MB Cache, up to 4.2 GHz)
  • AMD-Ryzen 5 4600H Processor, 6 Cores, Clock Speed of 3.0 GHz (8 MB Cache, up to 4.0 GHz)

Notably, these are the H series processors with higher TDP upto 45 Watts and offer far superior performance in comparison to the Ryzen 4500U or Ryzen 4800U. The downside, however, is lower battery life.

Asus TUF A15 Gaming laptop image

You can have either 8 GB or 16 GB, DDR4 Ram, with 3200 MHz clock speed and can even upgrade it up to 32 GB.

The CPU performance is incredible on these new Ryzen processors. Even if you opt for the Ryzen 4600H, you will not see any slowdown in either gaming or heavy applications.

I will suggest if you buying the laptop for just gaming go with the 4600H and try to get the fastest GPU with it.

For gaming, even 8 GB ram will be okay but can look for 16 GB.

Get the fastest processor, and add can save some bucks on the GPU for content creators.

I don’t need to tell content creators how big a memory hog is Adobe Premiere Pro.

For Graphics Card we have got 4 options, starting with the GTX 1650 at the bottom and going up to RTX 2060 with Ray tracing support.

  • Nvidia RTX 2060, with 6GB GDDR6 VRAM
  • Nvidia GTX 1660Ti, with 6GB GDDR6 VRAM
  • Nvidia GTX 1650Ti, with 4GB GDDR6 VRAM
  • Nvidia GTX 1650, with 4GB GDDR6 VRAM

The GTX 1650 will offer 50-60 FPS in most of the titles on medium to high settings on FHD resolution. We can expect an approx 15% improvement with the 1650 Ti and another 20% over it if you opt for the RTX 2060.

Using an RTX 2060 will get you over 100 FPS in most titles on even high to ultra settings. You can also enable Nvidia Ray Tracing for the games that support it and have more fun enjoying the breathtaking graphics. Gosh! I love high graphics details … and would love to test the Crysis 3 on this.

Next, let’s talk about Display.


As the name suggests the Asus Tuf A15 comes with a standard 15.6-inch screen size. It is an IPS LED-backlit panel and offers Full HD resolution (1920*1080) pixels. The top and side bezels are thin, and it looks impressive. There is a slightly larger bezel at the bottom side. Based on initial user feedback the display wobbles a lot when typing and that can be a concern for some. But it is not a bigger issue when you are gaming.

There are two refresh rate options - 144Hz and 60 Hz. Both the displays come with 45% NTSC color gamut, which is somewhere in the middle as far as color accuracy goes.

Asus has not specified the maximum brightness of the panel in official specs. Undoubtedly, if you plan to invest in a laptop to play FPS games, a high refresh rate monitor is a must.

It is not the top-of-the-line color accurate display that you will get on the higher-end ROG series laptops or a G14 but a decent display that will get the job done even for basic video editing.

Keyboard, Storage, WebCam, Battery, Connectivity, etc.

The keyboard on the machine looks decent and will be ideal for both typing and gaming. It is a backlit keyboard and comes with highlighted WASD keys. Also, there is a num-pad for people who like to use it. Personally, I don’t use it much.

The keyboard has zonal RGB backlighting that can be customized using Asus’s proprietary software.

The laptop comes with a plastic trackpad and has windows precision drivers that make it accurate and is an overall pleasure to work on.

For storage, you get a 1 TB hard-drive and there is 256GB/512GB/1TB NVMe PCIe® Gen3 SSD.

There is a 720p HD webcam at the top of the screen, ideal for video chat and calls.

The laptop has Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity and comes with the WIFI 5 (lacks the WIFI 6).

Ports Include:

  • 2 x Type-A USB 3.2 (Gen 1)
  • 1 x Type-C USB 3.2 (Gen 2) with display supportDP1.4
  • 1 x Type-A USB2.0
  • 1 x RJ45 LAN Jack for LAN insert
  • 1 x HDMI, HDMI support 2.0b

It runs on the Windows 10 Home edition.

The laptop comes with a 48 WHr battery capacity that is not too big and considering the powerful internal battery life is not going to be its strong trait.

The laptop measures 24.7 mm in thickness and weighs 2.3 Kg that is not unreasonable for a gaming laptop.

Overall the design looks impressive that doesn’t scream made for gaming but throws subtle hints suggesting that it packs a lot of power.
