As was already said, this computer is “TUF.” Asus says this is because the tablet has been tested to “military grade MIL-STD-810” standards, which are very strict. Theoretically, this means that the US military might want to use this laptop in some situations.
The Asus FX705 has a lot of features, but one of the best is that it is certified for military-grade physical durability. The 17-inch IPS LCD screen on the laptop has a refresh rate of 144 Hz, which is a big deal for gaming.
It has the same keyboard layout as the smaller FX505 model, but the arrow keys and the NumPad portion are crowded. Transparent polycarbonate is used to manufacture the WASD keys, allowing the illumination to shine through. This variation of the keyboard offers 4-zone RGB illumination that is configurable via the included TUF AURA software.
Models of the TUF FX705 are available with either a 60 Hz or 144 Hz 17.3-inch IPS matte display. It is a rapid display with exceptional response times, making it an ideal choice for gamers, especially when paired with the GTX 1060 graphics card, which can maintain frame rates in the majority of games.
The FX505GM model with a six-core Intel Core i7-8750H processor, 16 GB of RAM (2x DIMMs), dual storage, and a 6 GB Nvidia GTX 1060 graphics chip was featured in an examination of a midrange configuration of the TUF Gaming FX705 series.
Then, we assess the CPU’s performance by regularly running Cinebench R15 Multi-Core and recording the CPU’s frequencies, temperatures, and scores. The i7 accelerates to its maximum Turbo Boost frequencies out of the box, but quickly reaches 95 degrees Celsius and stabilizes between 2.8 and 3.1 GHz with a die-temperature of 70 to 75 degrees Celsius.
