ASUS has announced its new super slim TUF Dash F15 gaming laptop.
The TUF Dash F15 is a 15-inch MIL-STD-810H standard device that’s 19.9 mm thin and 2kg heavy. There are 240Hz and 144Hz refresh rate panel options, with the display framed with 6.2 mm super-narrow bezels regardless. There is also Adaptive-Sync support.
The inside has up to an 11th Gen Intel Core i7-11375H and GeForce RTX 3070 GPU. The processor offers an up to 5GHz clock speed and four CPU-attached PCIe 4.0 lanes. The laptop also has up to 32GB of DDR4-3200 memory and up to 1TB of storage, with an additional SSD slot.
Behind the bottom panel are a SO-DIMM slot and two M.2 slots held with standard Philips screws. “A special pop-open screw pushes the bottom corner away from the chassis so it’s easy to get under the hood fast,” says the press release. “The surrounding hooks holding the edges together are smaller and stronger than conventional counterparts, making it easy to lift off the panel without scuffing the body or special tools.”
ASUS says that the TUF Dash F15 can provide up to 16.6 hours of continuous video playback time, with fast-charging allowing the device to hit 50% battery charge from 0% in less than 30 minutes. For charging, it supports up to 100W Type-C adapters with its Type-C port in addition to its regular AC adapter. Other ports include three USB 3.2 Type-A ports, a HDMI 2.0b, and a Type-C port, and Gigabit Ethernet is included. It also sports Wi-Fi 6.
For cooling, there is a “substantial” heat spreader, five copper heat pipes, and four heatsinks with thin fins. There are dual special liquid crystal polymer-made n-Blade fans with 83 blades per fan that are “specially sculpted to move more air”, along with a self-cleaning cooling module and updated anti-dust tunnels. There’s also 0db Technology and Scenario Profiles for tinkering with cooling and performance.
Other features include Two-Way AI Noise Cancellation technology, a keyboard design that keeps inputs under 30dB, four dedicated hotkeys for features like volume, mic mute, and Armoury Crate and DTS:X Ultra technology, and a 1.7mm travel distance for the keyboard switches. There are Moonlight White and Eclipse Gray colour options, and the design includes a new TUF logo with a modern look and thin lid lettering.
