ASUS introduces GTX 1060-equipped TUF gaming laptops in India


ASUS has unveiled its updated TUF range of gaming laptops in India. The updated lineup now includes new variants with NVIDIA’s GTX 1060 GPUs and brings down the price of the existing models by a considerable margin.

The TUF series now offers up to an 8th generation Intel Core i7 processor paired along with an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 GPU with 6GB VRAM, 8GB of DDR4 RAM and a 128GB PCIe SSD + 1TB FireCuda SSHD storage. The lower-end models at least offer an 8th Gen Intel Core i5 processor along with an NVIDIA GTX 1050 GPU with 4GB of VRAM and a 1TB of FireCuda SSHD storage.

All the variants retain the signature TUF series properties. They feature 15-inch full HD IPS LCD displays, with the high-end models featuring a 120Hz panel. They sport backlit keyboards with 1.8mm of key travel. ASUS’ HyperCool technology pairs their Anti-Dust Cooling (ADC) system with Fan Overboost, which 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 top-of-the-line TUF FX504GM-EN017T with an 8th Gen Core i7 and GTX 1060 GPU comes for Rs 95,990 whereas the entry-level TUF FX504GD-E4021T with an 8th Gen Core i5 and GTX 1050 GPU has been priced at Rs 63,990.
