TUF Gaming is a very popular family of gaming laptops among gamers. In the camp of these mobile computers, many times produced worthy devices that deserve the closest attention. Among the distinctive features are high-quality hardware, an efficient cooling system, and a detailed display with low response time.

In the family of Asus gaming laptops, the TUF Gaming line takes a position under all kinds of ROG (Zephyrus, Strix, etc.), but it is the most interesting for an ordinary player: the processors here are powerful, video cards are junior GeForce GTX/RTX of the corresponding generation, i.e. they provide an incomparably higher level of performance than integrated graphics, but at the same time retain any reasonable cost. Perhaps, the design of TUF Gaming models is not as refined and exquisite as that of image laptops, but this is, after all, a matter of taste.

ASUS TUF Gaming F15

The TUF Gaming is a great compromise option for gamers who can't go on a trip or other trip for a long time without their favorite computer entertainment. Why limit yourself to your favorite hobby when you don't have to? It's a legitimate question and ASUS answering it has presented a decent device. Its autonomy at average load mode is enough for about 8 hours, and in the case of games - 3-4 hours. In the case of video playback so and above. There is some difference in the battery capacity of the younger and older versions. However, in both cases, it is better than its predecessors. Separately it is worth highlighting the 15.6-inch FullHD monitor based on the IPS matrix.

The heart of the system is the processor. Depending on the specification, you can choose a model with the Intel Core i5 13500H or the more powerful Intel Core i7 12700H. No need to worry about graphics processing. ASUS TUF Gaming F15 notebooks can be equipped with discrete graphics cards NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4050 for notebooks with 6GB of GDDR6 video memory or NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4060 for notebooks with 8GB of video memory of the same format.

The ASUS ROG Zephyrus line of notebooks has always had its characteristic features: powerful components in a rather discreet, stylish, and compact body. ASUS ROG Zephyrus M16 (2023) GU604 fully meets these criteria. The laptop is equipped with a powerful Intel Core i9 processor, a speedy 2TB drive, plenty of RAM and a top-of-the-line GeForce RTX 4080-4090 notebook graphics card. So its performance is at a very high level.

The laptop, depending on the package, has a 16-inch ROG Nebula and ROG Nebula HDR display with mini LED backlighting, which is housed in a sleek chassis that is sized to match the dimensions of 15-inch devices. The display has a QHD+ (2K) resolution, supports Adaptive-Sync, and has excellent speed characteristics: refresh rate of 240Hz and response time of 3ms. This guarantees excellent image quality and smooth gaming. Also note that in addition to running games, the notebook is also suitable for working in professional graphic applications and for working with multimedia content, thanks to the wide color gamut of the display, PANTONE® Validated display coverage and Dolby Vision® technology.

Two models ROG Zephyrus M16 (GU604VY-NM044X and GU604VY-NM040X) have an unusual design solution: in the display cover they have a built-in matrix display ROG AniMe Matrix™, consisting of a set of miniature LEDs (18710 dots, 1711 LEDs). This display is designed to display text messages and system notifications, visually accompany the audio being played, and show any custom animation.

With its help, the owner of the notebook can vividly declare its individuality.

We should also note the possibility of opening the screen of Zephyrus M16 to full 180 degrees, which will allow you to find additional scenarios of using the notebook in non-standard conditions.
Zephyrus M16, which has a low weight for gaming notebooks (2.1 - 2.3 kg), has an advanced cooling system with three fans and a full-width radiator. It helps to cool key components even more efficiently. By the way, seven heat pipes, laid in the laptop case, cool not only the processor and graphics card but also the elements of their power supply systems. This ensures the reliable and stable operation of the entire device in the long term.

6 reasons to buy ASUS ROG Zephyrus M16 (2023) GU604:

high performance;
great 16-inch Mini LED screen with 240Hz refresh rate;
stylish appearance and compact body (considering the 16-inch screen and components);
good range of connectors;
comfortable keyboard and touchpad;
loud audio system.

For gamers who demand the absolute best motion and image clarity, the Zephyrus M16 offers an incredible Nebula HDR Display with a 240Hz refresh rate, 100% DCI-P3 coverage, and a staggering 1100 nits of peak brightness for stunning HDR gameplay. The 16-inch, 16:10 Mini LED panel provides incredibly deep blacks for content that jumps right off the screen, whether you’re watching a movie or playing a fast-moving arena shooter. On models without the Mini LED panel, the max brightness peaks at 500 nits, but both panels share QHD resolution and a 240Hz refresh rate, and all models share an incredible 92% screen-to-body ratio.

For the first time, the M16 will feature an AniMe Matrix™ display. With 18,710 precision machined holes on the lid of the machine, animations are crisper and cleaner than ever before. For models without the AniMe Matrix™ LED array, the perforations are covered with Monochrome Film, allowing the lid to color shift with the light. For 2023, we’re also introducing a new matte black color with an overfiring finish. Helping to complete the stealth look, this finish is also incredibly fingerprint-resistant. With four polished side panels and a holographic nameplate, the M16 exudes a sense of style and luxury not seen in standard gaming laptops.

AniMe Matrix™ and Virtual Pet OMNI have both gotten an upgrade. More LEDs mean more animation possibilities, and OMNI returns with a whole host of mini games, like the Slot Machine, Shoot’em Up and Whack-A-Mole. The games will also light up the AniMe Matrix™ as you progress, and getting high scores will unlock more animations for OMNI as he joins you on the desktop.

ROG Zephyrus Duo 16

Asus has decided to release the next generation of ROG Zephyrus Duo 16 with two screens, for the updated model the manufacturer has the most modern and powerful stuffing.

In addition to top Nvidia mobile graphics cards - GeForce RTX 4080 and GeForce RTX 4090 - Asus also used AMD HX-series processor - Ryzen 9 7945HX with 16 cores on Zen 4 architecture. This is one of the first laptops based on this chip.

ROG Nebula HDR's 16-inch 16:10 main 16:10 QHD display makes it ideal for the most dynamic games, with a refresh rate of 240Hz and a response time of just 3ms.

The additional 14.1-inch ROG ScreenPad Plus™ display supports 4K resolution. You can run applications on this screen while gaming, so you can forget about minimizing the game window to perform other tasks. Thanks to the capabilities of the Windows 11 operating system, you can easily switch between applications and conveniently place windows depending on your current priorities. The secondary display and the main display form a single workspace, as it is automatically raised at a slight angle to the keyboard when the notebook is opened and moved toward the main display.

By the way, the space between the additional screen and the notebook serves to improve airflow circulation inside the case by 30% compared to conventional notebooks, as the ROG AAS Plus 2.0 aerodynamic system is engaged. The ROG Zephyrus Duo 16's efficient cooling system ensures consistent performance even when playing games or performing demanding tasks for long periods. In addition, thanks to the use of a highly efficient liquid metal-based thermal interface, the maximum thermal power of the processor is also increased.

It is impossible to classify Zephyrus Duo completely because it can equally serve as a gaming notebook and a professional tool for digital content developers; the model can also be classified as a mobile workstation.

Strix SCAR 16

While the RTX 4090 and Core i9 13980HX provide a fantastic core configuration for a gaming laptop today, a few things are holding back this powerful machine, not least the competition in this price category.

Before we get to the numbers, the Scar 16 has a good start to its aesthetics. There is an industrial touch to the design, but not enough to make it look too 'edgy'. It resembles the resurgent trend of retro consoles with a thin translucent plastic strip around the edges of the case and at the front.

It may not have the modest charm of the Clear Glacier Gameboy Advance, but at least the thin RGB strip along the front and back doesn't undermine the aesthetic. The light softly shines through the thickness of the laptop and gives a soft glow to the table around it. The default ROG rainbow logo on the back feels a bit too large to me, but that can easily be fixed with the Aura software.

The Scar 16 is thick and heavy enough to make me question the laptop nomenclature, though it's nowhere near as dense as desktop counterparts of yesteryear (see the 8-pound Gigabyte Aorus 17X YD ). Still, the Scar is thick enough

The board has a nice tactile bounce and the ability to toggle multiple keys for gaming, as you'd expect. In games, it does its job just fine.

ROG Strix SCAR 18 (2023) G834

The Asus ROG Strix Scar 18 is the largest laptop in the brand's current lineup, joining the 18-inch hype train alongside the Razer Blade 18 and the Alienware M18. With all that space to accommodate the latest and greatest components, it's no wonder these machines are often regarded as some of the best gaming laptops around.

They're designed as desktop replacements, with bulky chassis' that won't hold up to a backpack and a good range of ports to keep everything connected. Adding a screen, hinge, and the cooling required to run those high-end components in a technically portable device inflates the price over a standard gaming PC significantly, though. Yes, these are hugely impressive gaming laptops.
