Ive got the FA506IV model here, Which means theres an 8 core AMD Ryzen 7 4800H processor, Nvidia, RTX, 2060 graphics, 16gb of memory in dual channel and a 144Hz 1080p screen Ill test. The response time too., The TUF A15 – is also available with different specs Ive also got the Ryzen 5 4600H, with 1650 Ti model here too, so make sure youre subscribed for that one too. Otherwise, you can find updated prices linked in the description.. The ASUS Armoury Crate software lets you select between different performance, modes. Ive done all testing with turbo mode enabled for best performance, and this raises the fan, speed and applies the following. Overclock to the GPU., Well only be covering gaming performance in this video. So look out for the upcoming full review and thermal testing videos. Lets start out by going through all games at all setting levels then afterwards well see how the ASUS TUF A15 gaming laptop, compares with some other laptops. Red Dead. Redemption 2 was tested using the games built in benchmark tool, and this test is tough on pretty much any laptop, regardless of specs with max settings, though, for an RTX 2060 machine generally, we see higher FPS with an Intel processor, particularly at lower settings. Battlefield 5 was Tested in campaign mode, I didnt bother testing RTX, like I usually do as it honestly. Doesnt seem worthwhile in this title, but let me know if you still want to see it. The performance at ultra settings was fair for an RTX 2060 laptop, but well see how this title compares with other machines.

Soon. Control was tested with and without RTX enabled as its much more useful in this title. Ive got the results with RTX off in purple RTX on in the green bars, which is much worse then RTX on with DLSS enabled, as shown by the red bars. At Max settings the DLSS result is pretty similar to RTX off, while also gaining some of the benefits of ray tracing.. Shadow of the Tomb Raider was tested with the built in benchmark and the results were again fair for a 2060 based laptop but well check out. How other laptops compare with the A15 in this game? Shortly. Apex Legends was tested with either all settings at maximum or all settings on the lowest possible values, as it doesnt have predefined setting presets.. Even with all settings maxed out above 100 FPS was possible and it was playing without issue. Call of Duty. Modern Warfare was tested in campaign mode and Ive also tested it with the settings either maxed out or at minimum. Max settings were still playing. Well, though, minimum was hitting 1 lows that were similar to the average at max. If you prefer frame rate. Borderlands 3 was tested using the games built in benchmark, and it was still possible to surpass 60 FPS with the high setting preset. In this test, though, we could hit above 100 FPS at very low settings.. Ghost Recon Breakpoint was also tested with the benchmark tool, and although this is another resource, heavy game were still able to reach above 60 FPS at ultra settings.

Fortnite was tested with the replay feature and as a less demanding title, it was still running very well with The highest epic setting preset. High settings allowed us to hit average FPS above the 144Hz refresh rate of the screen, while even the 1 low was above. This at medium. Overwatch is another less demanding game and was tested in the practice range. Once more at the highest. Epic, setting preset the frame rates were excellent. The averages were higher than the screens refresh rate in all cases. CSGO was tested using the Ulletical FPS benchmark and as a game that prefers CPU clock speed. The results were noticeably lower when compared to an Intel, i7 laptop with the same GPU.. For brief comparison, the Acer Triton 500 with 90 watt 2060 and 8th gen i7 got very similar 1 lows, but was 20 30 FPS higher in the averages. Dota 2 was tested playing in the middle lane and a similar pattern was observed here, too. Generally with an I7, based laptop, were hitting higher average FPS than this, though, in practice, these are still great results for the game and its playing without any issue. Rainbow. Six Siege was tested with the built in benchmark using Vulkan and high settings were needed to hit average FPS above the screens. Refresh rate. Metro Exodus was tested using the built in benchmark. Most parts of the game perform a fair bit better than this, so dont. Take these results as a good indication of what to expect throughout the entire game its more of a worst case.

. The Division 2 was also tested with the built in benchmark the highest ultra. Setting preset was still capable of reaching the magic 60 FPS number, though we could more than double it at low settings.. This is only my second time. Testing Monster Hunter World, however, even at max settings the 1 low is right on 60 FPS, not too far behind the average. So quite a smooth and consistent experience, while 100 FPS could be hit at low. If you need more. Assassins, Creed Odyssey was tested with the built in benchmark, and the performance was fair in this one again for brief comparison that Triton 500 with same GPU but 8th gen i7 was performing within 1 2 FPS of this, both in average FPS and 1 low. The MSI GE65 with 9th gen i7, was ahead, though. However, it also has a more aggressive, GPU overclock., Far Cry. New Dawn was also tested with the games benchmark and tends to be more CPU heavy well check out how the older Far Cry 5 compares with some other machines very soon.. The Witcher 3 was playing well enough at max settings, though the 1 low was on the lower side, at least compared to high settings, which offers a nice performance boost without too much loss to visual fidelity. In my opinion., F1 2019 was tested using the games benchmark tool, and it generally sees a similar pattern of much lower results at max settings when compared to dropping back just one.

Level. Lets also take a look at how this configuration of the ASUS TUF A15 gaming laptop, compares with other laptops use. These results as a rough guide only as they were tested at different times with different drivers. In Battlefield 5 Ive got the A15 highlighted in red.. The average FPS is very close to the Triton 500, with 8th gen i7, which is just below it. However, the A15s 1 low is down a little comparatively., Its also behind the MSI GE65, with the same 90 watt RTX 2060, though that does apply a higher GPU overclock by default.. These are the results from Far Cry 5 with ultra settings in the built in benchmark.. This is more of a CPU sensitive test. However, this time the A15 is a little lower on the graph when compared to the same selection of laptops. Thats in terms of average FPS, at least to be fair. The 1 low is still in line with many of the i7 based machines.. These are the results from Shadow of the Tomb raider, with the built in benchmark at highest settings. In this more GPU demanding test. The A15 is back in the same position as we saw in Battlefield 5., Its ahead of some 2060 laptops like the Triton 500. Again, though, the GE65 is a few frames ahead once more. Overall, the gaming performance isnt amazing, but its definitely respectable., Despite the Ryzen 7. 4800H, coming out ahead in CPU heavy workloads like Blender.

It seems that Intel mobile processors have an edge in gaming.. I will investigate this in depth in future comparisons, once Ive got machines to do it fairly.. This was clearer when looking at the results at lower setting levels that are less GPU bound. That said, it of course depends on the specific game and the 4800H is still definitely delivering a good experience in all of these titles., While testing these 20 games out. I honestly cannot say I had any issues with the panel, but I dont think Im personally that sensitive to the slower response times, which is why I recently invested in the tools needed to measure response time. So far. The A15 is the slowest laptop panel Ive ever tested by a fair amount, granted Ive only tested about 5 laptops with this so far.. You can check the link in the description if you need an explanation of what all of these numbers mean, but the key takeaway is on average, the grey to grey response. Time is 20ms. Ill cover thermals in depth in the next video, so make sure youre subscribed for that one, as well as the upcoming full review. But for now let me know what you thought of the A15s gaming performance down in the comments. Ill also be testing.
