[Amazon.ca] $1499 ASUS TUF Gaming Laptop 144Hz, AMD Ryzen 7 4800H, GeForce RTX 2060, 16GB DDR4, 1TB PCIE SSD

Seems like a solid deal on a popular laptop right now, it's got an RTX 2060, 144hz panel 16gb of RAM so most people don't need to upgrade it and lastly a 1tb SSD. The laptop checks a lot of boxes for people.


Edit: Also available at Memory Express for the same price. https://www.memoryexpress.com/Products/MX81039

Is this 2060 max q?

Did they fix the thermal issue with the laptop?

Picture looks like it has cold air intake from bottom, which i thought was blocked

Regular 2060, not Max Q. The Max Q is in the slimmer models like G14.

It's more than possible.

I bought this model from the London Drugs sale for $1400. After testing a few other laptops with similar specs I'm happy with the A15, mostly due to the price I got it at. For me the screen quality is decent, but I'm not a competitive gamer and I use it mostly for Oculus Quest VR gaming.

Bought this for my son a few weeks ago. It's a pretty sweet laptop for that price. He's been using it for school and gaming obviously, mostly Valorant, GTA 5 and RL. The screen is fine after some adjustments. It's a bit dim but he's played around with the settings and made it look pretty good. Fans are pretty loud when he's gaming but not bad when doing routine tasks and there's some registry edits that can be made to reduce the fans by not maxing out the CPU during routine tasks so I still have to do that. The laptop itself doesn't get too hot to the touch even when gaming. Battery life is good. Hard to beat these specs at this price. The more expensive ROG line uses the Max-Q versions of these GPUs, so I'd argue that in this case, the cheaper option is better.

How is the fan speed? Is it loud? Also, does the laptop have throttling issues?

I picked it up during the LD sale as well. Very happy with it after I disabled CPU Turbo Boosting. Gaming performance is top notch!

My only complaint is the screens colour accuracy.

Do you have a link to the instructions you followed to disable the Turbo Boosting?

I also picked this up from London Drugs sale for my girlfriend. For the most part she is happy with the overall performance of it. Shes not a gamer at all and needed something powerful to use adobe illustrator, premier pro and photoshop. Only complaint I have is with color accuracy of the screen and fans will be a tad loud with trying to export a video out of premier pro. However, when just doing regular tasks like browsing the web the fans are relatively quiet. Outside of that it has solid specs for it's price, 1TB SSD boots super quick and great battery life.

if possible, can you have your son share the screen settings or the link to the screen settings please?

Thanks!

Only ROG Zephyrus line use Max Q because of the thinness of the laptop. Others use regular versions. Good review. Thanks

$1499 seems quite rich these days for a laptop with only a 2060 non-Super. The 4800H is nice, of course, but this is a gaming laptop so is almost a crime to sell it with a now somewhat obsolete regular 2060 at this kind of price. Near 1k and this would be a much better deal. Seems manufactures are slapping Ryzen 7's in laptops and calling it a day at inflated prices. Very much appreciate the post though, OP.
