So, present day, graphically intensive games are not feasible, unless you seriously lower both the settings and your expectations. The Asus TUF Gaming FX505DY’s display is fit for up to 120Hz refresh rates, however that won’t be grieved by the restricted performance of the PC.
So, is it a total discount? Perhaps not, because of a few things. First of all, we should recollect that at this price point, the Asus TUF Gaming FX505DY remains much less expensive than numerous other gaming laptops.
Secondly, it’s not focused on bad-to-the-bone gamers that need to play the latest games at high edge rates. For those individuals, they should purchase a more expensive machine.
In any case, what about individuals playing serious, game-basing websites such as League of Legends, Overwatch and World of Warcraft? These games don’t require as much requesting equipment, and in case you’re playing seriously, high edge rates are a higher priority than graphical effects and high resolutions. So, in case you’re an esports player, and wouldn’t fret bringing down the settings, that high refresh rate will unquestionably prove to be handy, alongside the robust design and low price point.
In our true tests, with the settings set low, the Asus TUF Gaming FX505DY performed fine with more seasoned games, or ones that aren’t graphically intensive. What’s more, on the off chance that you whack down the settings sufficiently low, you can get a fair score. For instance, with Shadow of the Tomb Raider, which is a pretty late game that is graphically intensive, in the event that you set the presets to ‘Lowest’, you can game at a completely playable 47 fps (or there about). It makes the game resemble a PS3/Xbox 360-time game in some ways, yet it is playable.
The way that the Asus TUF Gaming FX505DY improved in the graphically-intensive Shadow of the Tomb Raider contrasted with the CPU-intensive Total War: Warhammer II suggests that the AMD Ryzen 5 3550H processor may be keeping this PC down – more so than its graphics card.
One thing we should call attention to is that this thing gets noisy when you mess around. In its limited time materials for the TUF Gaming FX505DY, Asus has made a major ordeal over its ‘HyperCool’ innovation, which includes Anti-Dust Cooling and an incredible double fan design. While this may function admirably to keep the PC cool – it absolutely didn’t show any signs of overheating – it does mean you need to endure the fans buzzing during ongoing interaction.
