Today during CES 2021, Asus unveiled its TUF Dash F15 gaming laptop, which takes the entry-level TUF line in a hip new direction.
This is a decidedly more modern approach to a budget gaming laptop, and we wanted to get a closer look ourselves. Because CES 2021 is an all-virtual event, we couldn’t see the Dash F15 in person. But we worked with Asus to bring you the next best thing. We spoke to Asus over a video call, with the Dash F15 in hand on their end, so we could get a private look and have our questions answered. You can check out our discussion and see the Dash F15 for yourself in the video below…
Traditionally representing Asus’ more budget-minded offerings, until 2021 the TUF laptop line maintained a fairly traditional design sensibility. The new TUF Dash F15 represents a shift, with this fresh laptop packaged in a slim chassis that comes in black or a more striking white.
The key takeaways, aside from the visual redesign, include a host of new component options from Intel and Nvidia. The Dash F15 includes up to an Intel Core i7-11375H CPU and an Nvidia RTX 3070 GPU, meaning pretty serious gaming power. Intel’s latest “Tiger Lake” Core H processors and Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 30-Series GPUs for laptops were also just announced at CES 2021, so these are the cutting-edge options for gamers.
This laptop measures 0.78 by 14.1 by 9.9 inches (HWD) and roughly 4.4 pounds, which means that power is packed into a fairly compact system. Super-premium gaming laptops are decidedly lighter and a bit thinner, but considering the difference in intended audiences, this is a nice and portable laptop. The 15.6-inch display is full HD, and it comes in 144Hz and 240Hz flavors.
You can configure the system with up to 16GB of memory and a 1TB SSD. Extra benefits include Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth, and Thunderbolt 4 support (all thanks to the newest Intel platform).
Enjoy the video for a closer look, and check back for a full review of the TUF Dash F15 when it becomes available in Q1 of this year. We’ll have one in hand for testing soon.
