Gaming TUF Dash 15 with good performance-price ratio and top working Zenbook Duo with two screens.
Yesterday we mainly imagined game novelties with maximum performance, which also means a bold price tag. Today we have something more popular. It is interesting how the situation with processors turned and where the former high reign of Intel now reigns today, the red and blue team we have for laptops focused on the ratio of performance and price.
Asus TUF Gaming Dash 15 (FX516)
At first glance, the new generation of the TUF Dash notebook game line will impress with its discreet design and simple shapes. No extravagant profiles or other flights, nice, clean and minimalist design. In addition, designed with MIL-STD-810H military resistance standards in mind. Don’t expect to stab a deer in the woods with a laptop in an emergency, and after slicing it on a machine, you will have a few wheels in Fortnite. But for nothing, those standards are not invented.
Inside, a new-generation Intel processor is ticking TigerLake H, which the blues had been postponing for some time now, and now perhaps it has finally succeeded. It seems to offer solid performance and good endurance, which is nice with a laptop. In combination with graphics cards Nvidia Geforce RTX up to model 3070 should mainly offer a top performance-price ratio. Especially in combination with 15.6 ”display with FHD resolution, where you can choose between two panel variants. I assume that the IPS panel with the refresh rate will be cheaper 144 Hz a Adaptive Sync or faster with a refresh rate 240 Hz and 100% sRGB color coverage space.
The memory is again partially fixed, depending on the variant 8 nebo 16 GB DDR4 3200 MHfor that one free slot for enlargement. With all the advantages and disadvantages of such a combination. Asus will then supply up to one M.2 slot 1 TB of disk capacity.
The built-in battery should have a decent capacity 76 Wh and the power in it is maintained by a classic adapter with a power of 180 or 200 W. On the positive side, as with all other innovations, it supports alternative operation on a USB-C PD adapter. This will be an optional extra for an extra charge.
Compared to the previous generation, the novelty is a bit smaller, the thickness has been reduced from 24.7 mm to 19 mm and the weight has also been reduced from 2.3 to 2.1 Kg. Now there’s also better sound with Dolby Atmos and a microphone with AI suppression of ambient sounds.
You can connect peripherals to the laptop via one USB-C with DP support, including Thunderbolt 4 interface and PD. There are also three classic USB-A gen1, HDMI 2.0, 4pin audio jack and LAN.
Asus ZenBook Duo (UX482)
The second novelty today is not surprisingly intended for players. On the contrary, this laptop is especially for everyone who really works on the go. And they lack an office where they have their two or three monitors and they swap windows between them like in a ping pong tournament. At first glance, the ZenBook Duo is very similar to the Zephyrus Duo game cannon, but it is designed for serious work. Home screen with 14 ”diagonal and FHD resolution is equipped with an IPS panel with luminosity 400 rivets and boasts color fidelity certification Pantone Validated. A smaller 12.6 ”display called ScreenPad+ is basically half of the main one, again with FHD (half) resolution and IPS panel. Thanks to a special joint, it folds up slightly when the laptop is opened, similar to the Zephyr. This will improve viewing angles and also reduce the visual gap between the panels. ScreenPad + can either serve as another Windows screen, or you can use one of the variable control panels that Asus has prepared for a variety of applications. Alternatively, you can design some yourself. Both displays are touch and support the stylus, so the panels can be completely eliminated. For example, in the next generation, the screen will have haptic feedback as with mobile phones.
You will be able to choose processors from the new generation of Intel with the Zenbook Duo Tiger Lake H i5 a i7. Memory will be up 16 GB a SSD up to 1 TB capacity. If the integrated graphics in the processor are not enough, the s variant will be available Nvidia Geforce MX450. Because Intel was one of the first to integrate WiFi 6 into the chipset, so its support is clear, as is Bluetooth 5.0. There will be two USB-C ports with Thunderbolt 4 support. There will also be one classic USB-A, HDMI 2.0 and audio jack.
Built – in battery with capacity 72 Wh should offer solid battery life even if the laptop has two displays.
