Taiwanese brand Asus introduced a new TUF Gaming series with the FX504 Gaming laptop earlier this year meant as an affordable and durable alternative to high-end gaming devices. The company has now refreshed its FX504 TUF laptop with the latest NVIDIA GTX 1060 graphics and a larger storage, the cheapest of which will start at Rs 84,990 in India.
The FX504 TUF Gaming laptop features a 15.6-inch Full HD display with a fast refresh rate of 120Hz and 3ms gray-to-gray (GTG) response time along with 130 percent sRGB colour gamut and wide viewing angle. The major takeaway here is the 120Hz refresh rate, which will surely allow gamers to have smoother gaming visuals.
The latest model of the FX504 comes powered by an 8th generation Intel Core i7-8750H processor with NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 graphics that supports Microsoft DirectX 12. Weighing in at under 2.3KG, the gaming laptop houses up to 8GB of DDR4 RAM, 1TB of FireCuda SSHD and 128GB of PCIe SSD for storage. The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 graphics is also available in a Core i5 model; however, it’ll lack the 120Hz response rated display on the front. Another new Core i5 version is the one powered by the NVIDIA GTX1050 graphics.
With HyperCool technology, the FX504 significantly prolongs its lifespan and provides stable cooling during intense gaming marathons. HyperCool technology pairs the patented Anti-Dust Cooling(ADC) system with Fan Overboost. The ADC system expels harmful dust particles and dirt through two dedicated tunnels to prevent build-up in the thermal fins. The Fan Overboost function provides users with three different modes for the perfect balance between fan performance and noise level.
The FX504 comes with a desktop-style gaming keyboard that is optimised for extended gaming and typing sessions. The company claims it has a lifespan of 20 million key presses. It has a 1.8mm of travel for smooth and tactile keystrokes along with backlit keys with highlighted WASD keys.
Asus has also revised the prices of older versions of the FX504 TUF Gaming laptop which now start at Rs 68,990 and go all the way up to Rs 85,990.
The three new ASUS TUF Gaming FX504 laptops are currently available for a starting price of Rs 63,990 for the Core i5/GTX1050 version, Rs 84,990 for the Core i5/GTX1060 variant and Rs 95,990 for the Core i7/GTX1060 model.
