The ROG Strix SCAR II and HERO II GL504 gaming laptops spearheaded ASUS’ entry into the slim bezel gaming laptop game. But their pricing definitely placed them out of most people’s reach. Which is what these ASUS TUF Gaming FX505 and FX705 laptops are here to change.

The ASUS TUF Gaming laptops will be available in two variants, the 15.6″ TUF Gaming FX505 and the 17.3″ TUF Gaming FX705 laptops. The former’s pricing starts from RM3699, while the latter comes in starting from RM4999. A wide range of specifications are available to suit the unique requirements of every gamer.
