ASUS has just announced their latest TUF Gaming laptops powered by the GeForce RTX 30 series graphics. As you might have noticed, ASUS have applied their new, minimalist TUF Gaming logo to their laptops this year, and this allows for a sleeker looking design overall. The best part? Well, they are also offered at pretty affordable prices.

For the first batch, ASUS Malaysia will be bringing in the ASUS TUF Gaming A15 and Dash F15. The ASUS TUF Gaming A15 will be available with the latest AMD Ryzen 5000 series processors, while the TUF Gaming Dash F15 pack the 11th Gen Intel Core H series processors, ensuring that there’s something for everyone.

The design on the TUF Gaming A15 is carried over from the current-gen AMD Ryzen 4000 TUF Gaming A15, but with a new logo. The battery is also significantly bigger at 90WHr, but you do lose out on the ability to use 2.5″ drive with the new 2021 TUF Gaming A15. Of course, performance is also going to take a huge leap in the right direction with the new Zen 3-based AMD Ryzen 7 5800H and GeForce RTX 3070 and RTX 3060 graphics.
