While the ASUS TUF F16 and A16 gaming laptops feature the upgraded chassis (available in Jaeger Gray and Mecha Gray), the A15 is getting an under-the-hood boost with an upgraded CPU and DDR5 memory. The re-designed chassis on the 16-inch models (F16 & A16) gives the lineup a fresh new clean look, inspired by mecha featured in anime, comics, and games.
For those after an Intel CPU, the TUF Gaming F16 is available with an Intel Core™ i7 processor 13650HX with 14 cores and 20 threads, as well as ultrafast DDR5-4800MHz RAM to keep the machine feeling responsive at all times. Paired with up to an NVIDIA GeForce RTX™ 4060 GPU with NVIDIA Advanced Optimus, this machine is built for long-lasting value for mainstream gamers.
The TUF Gaming A16, on the other hand, is available with up to an AMD Ryzen™ 9 7845HX paired with DDR5-5200MHz RAM. It also features up to an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 GPU with NVIDIA Advanced Optimus for high framerate, low-latency gaming. The TUF Gaming A15 also features AMD processors and can be configured with up to an AMD Ryzen 8000 series processors alongside DDR5-5600MHz RAM
and an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 40-Series Laptop GPU with NVIDIA Advanced Optimus.
The larger models feature USB-C PD charging, a long-lasting 90Wh battery, and a desktop-like keyboard with a 1.7mm travel distance. The TUF Gaming F16 features Thunderbolt™ 4, while the TUF A16 sports USB 3.0 Type-C® and the TUF Gaming A15 provides Type-C USB4® for ultra-fast transfer speeds.
While the F16 and A16 sport 16:10 16-inch displays, the A15 comes equipped with a 15-inch 16:9 display. All three have a 2.5K resolution with a refresh rate of 165Hz and G-SYNC support.
The ASUS TUF F16, TUF A16, and TUF A15 do not have an official release date in Canada at the
moment but we’ll be sure to update you once that information is available.
