ASUS has announced pricing and availability information for 2023’s new and updated TUF Gaming laptop lineup.

New to the F-series and A-series, aside from the CPU and GPU, are that MUX switch (NVIDIA Advanced Optimus) are now available on all models, no exceptions. The new 84-blade fan design are hand-me-down from ROG designs, which sees up to 13% more airflow over previous iterations. Depending on the CPU flavor you choose, there will be performance advantages on different parts of the system.

The Intel-powered F-series gets up to Core i7-13700H which features 6P+8E core configuration that should get ahead over equivalent A-series hardware on CPU workloads; however, A-series gets the more powerful GPUs in the form of RTX 4070 (140W) – whereas the F-series topped out at RTX 4060 at the same TGP rating.

The Intel models also comes with DDR4-3200 RAM whereas AMD models gets exclusively DDR5-4800 RAM, so it’ll be interesting to see the performance of these models when pitted side-by-side. Prices start from RM5,299 and RM4,999 for Intel and AMD models respectively – and there are at least six configurations to choose from, with two display sizes, two CPU brands, and three GPU options. ASUS says more configuration pairing should come down the line.

Finally, the crown jewel of TUF Gaming laptops are the new TUF A16 Advantage Edition which features all-AMD hardware: you get either a Ryzen 9 7940HS or a Ryzen 7 7735HS paired with the Radeon RX 7600S 8GB rated for 95W of power. Both configurations will feature a 16-inch, 16:10 FHD+ 165Hz display; and are set to arrive starting from April onwards. No pricing has been published for these models at the time of this writing.

Pokdepinion: Even TUF laptops have pretty powerful specs these days – budget laptops do come a long way, aren’t they?
