    The media could not be loaded.

     I loved the design. It’s pretty, although a little dirty, since it’s a magnet for fringerprints, but nothing a little cleaning can’t solve.I got the version of 16GB ram and core i7 12th gen, and it’s a beast. There’s no program this laptop can’t run. I’ve had it for a couple of weeks and I mainly use it for engineering (solidworks, matlab, autocad 3D, etc) and it runs everything smoothly.I’ve only had the chance to try it on fornite, but it can run it with everything in epic quality, so I expect it to run any other game without any problem.It’s, in my opinion, a great laptop for university students (specially if you study engineering like me, or architecture), who want a great experience working on it and also playing video games.I haven’t had any problem with fans or temperatures as others comments mention, but this is just my experience with this device.I had it for $1069 + $65 on taxes, and it was definitely worth it.I’m from Mexico btw, but I asked a friend of mine who was in USA that brought it to me and it’s just perfect.

    I’ll keep it simple, i love the design, the specs are really good especially for this budget (i got it for 999$ on sale) and overall it is a great gaming laptop. Love it.No more upgrade for the next 4-5 years.

    The laptop is really well-built, fast and simple perfect for work, study and gaming, the only thing to have in mind if that you are heavily gaming it can get hot, so I would recommend a cooling base/stand, but this is a great laptop for the price !

    When I started thinking about buying a light and powerful affordable laptop, the only option was the 2021 TUF Dash, but it had a 4-core bottleneck CPU. Later, the 2022 version was released. This model has a good 10-core i7-12650H CPU (6 P-cores + 4 E-cores) and 105W RTX 3060 GPU (80+25 Dynamic boost), so I bought it as soon as I got the chance.It works with heavy applications without any problems, the system is fast and responsive. The gaming performance is excellent, I played Detroit: Become Human with great pleasure on the highest graphics settings.If you want a model with a higher TDP GPU, consider the Asus TUF F15 2022 (not Dash), this model has a 140W RTX 3060 (115+25 Dynamic boost), but it is heavier and larger, so decide what is more important to you. I chose portability.*Asus is offering 90-day warranty extension for this review.

    UPDATE: For anyone who doubted that the mobo in the 2022 version of this laptop supported Gen 4 SSD’s, you can put those doubts to rest. I received, installed and tested the 1tb Gen 4 Micron 3400 series SSD that I ordered. The drive is rated to achieve 6600 read and 5000 write. Chrystal Disk tests mine out at 6545.55 read and 4934.03 write. The only way that I could realize the top speeds of my new Micron Gen 4 SSD is if the Mobo supported Gen 4 SSD’s. So there you have it. Just be aware that a Gen 4 SSD in a Gen 4 mobo will run hotter than a Gen 3 SSD in a Gen 4 mobo. To make matters a bit worse, there isnt a lot of room inside this laptop for air flow. This may be why the manufacturer of the 2022 version used a Gen 3 SSD instead of a Gen 4 SSD. This is by no means an insurmountable problem. Just make sure that you shop for a decent M.2 SSD heat sink at the same time that you’re shopping for that new ultra fast Gen 4 SSD. Ive used a 1mm thick graphene coated copper plate, on top of a 1mm thick silicone pad on top of a 0.07mm thick layer of graphene tape. This may be overkill but I dont want to waste even a single, brief worry on how hot my drive might be getting lol! I see the price of the laptop went up a bit. Its still a bargain!The GTX 980ti GPU in my old, self built desk top gaming system died last January and Ive been “slumming it” with a Radeon 7770 ever since because, after COVID hit, the price of seriously game worthy graphics cards shot up beyond what I was willing to pay. This laptop didnt cost much more than a really good graphics card so I finally decided to retire the ole’ desktop and buy this laptop. So far(after two days, mind you lol), Im very happy that I did.First, let me straighten out one big issue. I AM REVIEWING THE 2022 Model! NOT THE 2021 Model! I asked a couple of questions about my 2022 system in the customer question area and mostly got replies from well-meaning folk who own the 2021 model. Unfortunately for those who bought the 2021 model a year ago or less for the same or greater money, the 2022 model is a significant upgrade and has some features which do not apply to the 2021 model. Many answers supplied by 2021 model owners cannot be applied to 2022 model owners. Its surely a fact that Ill be in the same boat as the 2021 model owners come 2023. Thats just how tech growth works.Anyway, the 2022 model uses ddr5 ram(2021 model uses DDR4) and has no problem mixing 1xr8 ram with 2xr8 ram. If you dont know the difference between the two, here is what little I know: They are essentially the same except that 1xr8 ram is one sided. 2xr8 ram is two sided. From what I understand, smaller sticks of ram will usually be 1xr8 while larger sticks(32gb and up) will usually be 2xr8. Some motherboards will not let you mix single sided ram with double sided ram. The mobo on the 2022 system will and from what Ive read in the reviews, so will the mobo on the 2021 system, so thats great. I added 32gb 2xr8 Samsung ram to my 2022 model for a system recognized total of 40gb. Ill be removing the remaining stock 8gb ram and replacing it with another 32gb stick in the beginning of Oct, when my new budget starts. That will bring my system to 64gb ram which I “think” is the max. IMPORTANT NOTE: The 2022 system comes with two slots for ram and has an 8gb stick in each slot. Both 8gb sticks of ram can be removed and replaced. NO RAM IS SOLDERED TO THE MOBO IN THE 2022 MODEL.Ok, next and also very important; The m.2 PCIe SSD interface on the 2022 motherboard is GEN 4(also awesome!). This was verified by the seller who has been excellent about very quickly responding to questions in the question-and-answer area for this product. The 2021 model mobo uses a GEN 3 PCIe interface. The difference between GEN 3 and GEN 4 in how fast info can be processed can be huge, depending upon the SSD you use. Put a Gen 3 SSD in a Gen 4 capable system and you’ll be limited to the processing speeds of the Gen 3 SSD. Put a Gen 4 SSD in a Gen 3 system and the Gen 3 system will limit your Gen 4 SSD to Gen 3 speeds. But put a Gen 4 SSD in a GEN 4 capable system and you’re gonna get the fastest speeds possible for that drive in that system.Unfortunately, the 512gb SSD included in the 2022 system is a Gen 3 Hynix. So, despite the system having a GEN 4 PCIe interface, the included SSD drive limits info transfer/access to GEN 3 speeds. The speeds of the installed Gen 3 SSD are nothing to sneeze at though. The read/write on mine were; read-3555.98 write-2707.89 and 2557.70 and 2581.43. Considering that a large number of Gen 3 SSD’s proudly claim numbers significantly lower than those, the installed Hynix drive is pretty decent. But also consider that a high end GEN 4 drive like a Samsung 980 pro claim numbers TWICE those!There are two slots on the 2022 systems mobo for an m.2 SSD. One has the previously mentioned Hynix SSD already installed and that contains the laptops OS. Ive installed a gen 3 VisionTek SSD into the second m.2 slot on my laptops mobo. Its just a drive I had kicking around. I got a GEN 4, 1tb Micron 3400 series drive for a very good price and will be transferring my OS to that when it arrives in a few days. The Gen 4 micron SSD claims speeds of over 6000 read and over 5000 write as long as its in a mobo that is GEN 4 capable. Ill remove the preinstalled Hynix SSD and replace it with the much faster Micron SSD as my OS disk. Ill probably stash the Hynix SSD safely away somewhere, OS intact, as a backup in case the Micron drive ever dies for some reason. Finally, Ill probably leave the VisionTek drive in the 2nd M.2 slot and use it strictly for game storage.Im not sure what else that I can add that someone might find useful. Everything Ive written so far is stuff I had wished someone else would’ve listed somewhere in the reviews or question and answer area. I had to do a serious bit of research to figure it out on my own. Ive only had this system for a couple of days now but Ive been using it ever since it arrived(its so nice to have a fully functional system again, that is capable of running everything I like to run with ease!). I cant comment on battery life or heat issues since I keep my laptop plugged in 99% of the time and keep it on a laptop cooling pad whenever in use. There are options to limit the charge of the battery to 60%(or 80% if you so choose) which is supposed to drastically increase the overall life of the battery but again, such options are only applicable if you use the laptop plugged in most of the time-which I do. There are simply a whole lot of features for configuring the system to your needs and likings. To go through them all would be to make this review into more of a book that I already have so Im gonna stop here.This is a great system for the money. If I were you, Id grab it while you can.

    Seems like a great laptop so far. I want to note that is only comes with 1 SO-DIMM slot, the other is soldered. I am purchasing a 32 gb stick to try and at least upgrade it to 40 gb. Although overall first impressions are great. I had no idea that ASUS had a 1 year complimentary accidental damage protection.

  7. Amazon Customer

    The laptop is pretty laptop. For the specs you pay for you get a good deal and it is a pretty good slick desgin. I want to put it out there I just got it. But from using it it’s pretty nice. If you got the money do it and like to play games I guess I will edit it once I play a game. The game I will be playing is rust.

    For reference I got 16gb RAM, RTX 3060, i7-12650h.About me:I am a programmer and gamer, who was very hesitant to switch from desktop to laptop given the amount of time I spend on a computer. Recently at work I got switched to a MacBook pro and a thunderbolt docking station and that has been revolutionary for me. Since this laptop can plug right into my dock I finally felt comfortable to take the leap. And I am very pleasantly surprised! Only a few weeks into ownership and I am not only growing fond of this little machine but I even was able to sell my desktop and JUST use this.Laptop itself:Fast. Great at multitasking. Never runs out of juice with 10 cores. I can game, and review code simultaneously.It does run a bit warm when gaming though. Especially the CPU. I personally found turning off turbo via throttle stop to be the best solution and it didn’t hit my game quality at all, running 50-70°c during 6 hour game sessions. Otherwise, I’d still recommend a cooling pad and limit fps. Before turning boost off, and repasting, it was running 75-100°c (thermal throttle). After repaste it runs 70-90°c normally during gaming PCGaming:Pretty much any game on high to ultra settings, 1080 or 1440p and 60fps is a breeze for this thing. I play far cry 5, halo infinite, Forza horizon 5, etcWiFi is blazing fast. I’m pulling 340mbps download in steam which is what I got on my wired PC.Screen is decent. Looks good but could be Brighter. The big con of any laptop under $2-2500. But it’s brighter than my previous msi laptop so I’m happyBattery is good for what it is. ~4-5 hours web browsing or YouTube, 1-1.5 gaming depending on settings but charges lighting fast.Overall very thin, very light, very good looking laptop and the build qaulity feels great. With a dock it truly becomes a portable workstation

    Bought the 2022 model with 16 gigs. Play mostly league and older games to be honest, but I absolutely love the thing. It looks great- sleek but not obnoxiously gamer design. Web cam is pretty bad, but better then nothing- which is what most other gaming laptops in this price range will offer. Word of advice, avoid having the armory crate open while gaming, and make sure to let BIOS update to current before making a final judgement. I had performance issues prior to sorting out those two issues, but now it runs perfectly.

  10. Ugur

    This laptop really exceeded my expectations. I am receiving a warranty extension from ASUS for giving my feedback however I genuinely recommend this product for anyone who is looking to do gaming and be mobile at the same time. It is very light for its purpose, specs and quality.
