The latest ASUS TUF Dash F15 gaming laptop is finally available in the Nepali market. It arrives with the 11th gen Intel Core processor and the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 series mobile GPU. Here, we will be discussing the complete specs and key features of the Asus TUF Dash F15 2021 along with its price and availability in Nepal.
Asus TUF Dash F15 2021 Overview:
Design and Display
Asus has made some changes to the looks of the laptop in this latest iteration. The most noticeable difference has to be the absence of the brushed-metal finish. The lid is still made of metal but everything else is plastic. The chassis meets the military-grade MIL-STD standard. The laptop is 19.9mm thick and is available in two color options – Silver Gray and Moonlight White.
Coming to the display, the TUF Dash F15 features a 15.6-inch FHD IPS panel. Out of three models that are available in the Nepali market, two feature a 144Hz refresh rate while the other has a 240Hz refresh rate. All three come with Adaptive Sync support. Also, these panels are Pantone validated and cover 100% of the sRGB color gamut.
Performance and Memory
On the performance side, you get the latest 11th Gen Intel Tiger Lake-H processors. There is no AMD’s Ryzen 5000-series option here. Users can choose between Core i5-11300H and i7-11370H CPU. The Core i7 variant comes with RTX 3070 while the Core i5 variants have RTX 3060 GPU. Here, both GPUs can consume up to 80W of power (or up to 85W with Dynamic Boost).
Asus has included a self-cleaning cooling setup on the TUF Dash 15. The setup consists of five heatpipes that transfer heat from CPU, GPU, VRM, and VRAM to four heatsinks and finally to the fans. The two fans consist of resilient liquid-crystal polymer blades.
In terms of memory, you can choose between 8GB and 16GB of DDR4 RAM. You get 512GB and 1TB of PCIe SSD. Both the RAM and SSD are user-upgradeable. The 8GB RAM is soldered into the motherboard but users can configure the second SO-DIMM slot for a cumulative capacity of 32GB. Similarly, there is an additional M.2 NVMe slot for additional storage.
Rest of the features
Getting to I/O, TUF Dash F15 is equipped with one Thunderbolt 4 (DisplayPort 1.4 and Power Delivery), three USB 3.2 Type-A, one HDMI 2.0b, an Ethernet, a Kensington lock, one DC-in, and an audio combo jack. Connectivity-wise, it is Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.1 ready.
Its dual speakers support DTS:X Ultra. Asus has also included two-way AI noise cancellation that works with any input device. It runs on the CPU, thereby keeping the GPU free for other tasks.
The whole setup is fueled by a 4-cell 76WHrs Li-ion battery. Asus is claiming up to 16.6 hours of video playback on a full charge. Its fast charging support means that the laptop can go from 0 to 50% in just 30 minutes.
