ASUS TUF Gaming 15.6″ FHD Laptop with Intel i5-10300H

ASUS - TUF Gaming 15.6 Full HD Laptop Intel i5-10300H

Black ASUS TUF (FX506LI-BI5N5) is a gaming laptop with a 15.6-inch Full HD non-touch display, tenth generation Intel i5-10300H processor, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 Ti graphics card, 256GB Solid State Drive, 8GB DDR4 memory and Windows 10 Home operating system. The current average rating is 5 out of 5 stars by 8 customers for this end of 2019 release machine and it seems to offer great value as a mid-range gaming laptop.

Quarter 1 of 2020 release tenth generation quad core Intel i5-10300H processor (8MB cache, 4 cores, 8 threads with hyperthreading) works at the decent speeds of between 2.5GHz and 4.5GHz with the max turbo frequency when you work on very demanding tasks. The average CPU PassMark benchmark score is 8841 for this advanced processor and the typical TDP- Thermal Design Power is 45 watts for an average battery life of around 4 hours from its 3-cell 48WHrs 3S1P lithium ion battery, which will be shorter for heavy gaming.

In terms of overall performance the i5-10300H processor is similar to the i7-8750H with 6 cores and faster than the previous generation i5-9300H with its higher clock speed. You can perform rather demanding workloads and multitasking. But if you are going to use a very high-end graphics card, you’ll be somewhat limited with the Intel i5-10300H. Both the 256GB Solid State Drive and 8GB DDR4 SDRAM memory at 2933MHz are sufficient amounts for ordinary gamers that do not have the demands of very high local storage space or super multitasking power.

You can still save quite a few multimedia files and run different apps and browser tabs simultaneously, use external storage or Cloud when you have internet access. You also have the option to upgrade the internal storage space (preferably get a 2.5″ SATA III drive) and memory capacity (supported up to 32GB) if you need more. Connectivity optionsg include 802.11ac wireless, Bluetooth 5.0, Gigabit Ethernet with RJ-45 connector, a USB 3.0 port, a Type-A USB2.0 port, Type-C USB 3.2 (Gen 2) with display support, Type-A USB 3.2 (Gen 1), an HDMI 2.0b output, Media Card Reader, headphone/microphone combo and an AC adapter plug.

Intel UHD 630 iGPU graphics is pretty much the same as UHD 630 of the i5-9300H and will let you play some of the newer, more demanding titles at the lower settings and resolutions. NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 Ti dedicated mobile graphics card with the 4GB GDDR6 dedicated memory was first benchmarked on 29 March, 2020 and has an average video card benchmark score of 7536 for overall advanced gaming and multimedia performance.
