About a month after the presentation at CES 2021, ASUS announces the debut on the US market of the 2021 ASUS TUF Dash F15 (FX516) gaming notebook, a laptop that combines the robustness and quality of ASUS TUF products with the latest generation hardware and a particularly refined and compact design.
Let’s start with the design which, despite the TUF Dash 15 complies with the MIL-STD military standard, is particularly compact, offering a thickness of 19.9 mm for a weight of 2Kg. The notebook Asus, also characterized by two reduced frames, is available in Moonlight White and Eclipse Gray colors, while there is no shortage of optimizations for the dissipation system that integrates five heatpipes and dual cooling fan.
The 2021 ASUS TUF Dash F15 is a 15.6-inch notebook that can count on a 240 Hz FHD IPS panel and a 3ms response time. Speaking of hardware then, the Taiwanese company opts for an Intel Core 11th gen platform (up to Core i7), alongside GeForce RTX 30 graphics cards (up to GeForce RTX 3070).
Not only performance but also versatility thanks to Thunderbolt 4 and USB-C support, without forgetting the refined audio system – certainly appreciated by gamers and non-gamers – which supports Two-Way AI Noise-Cancelation technology for bidirectional noise cancellation supported by the AI.
