ASUS TUF Gaming A15 FA507 – Top 5 Pros and Cons

ASUS’s TUF brand has had a positive impact on the laptop gaming market offering quality devices for a good price. The lack of ROG branding is the saving grace for some people, which want a more minimal gaming experience with no RGB of any kind.

The series has been around for a couple of years now, and the devices that they offer have only gotten better, becoming serious contenders against their ROG relatives.

While you don’t get access to the most powerful available hardware, you can get pretty darn close, if the TUF Gaming A15 FA507 is any indication of that, as it offers the Ryzen 7 6800H and up to an RTX 3070 Ti, which is more than enough for 99% of the gamers.

Today we are presenting you with LaptopMedia’s top 5 picks about the ASUS TUF Gaming A15 FA507.

ASUS TUF Gaming A15 FA507: Full Specs / In-depth Review

4 reasons to BUY the ASUS TUF Gaming A15 FA507

1. Design and build quality

While the laptop is mostly crafted out of plastic, with only the lid being made out of metal, the device is pretty durable, durable enough to withstand and survive the MIL-STD-810H series of durability tests, which include shock, drop, humidity, and extreme temperatures. The design itself has a TUF logo in the center of the lid, while the angles are styled to include rivets in the corner, providing a more industrial and militaristic aesthetic.

The lid opens easily with one hand, revealing a very good keyboard for gaming with a backlight, highlighted WASD keys, long key travel, and clicky feedback. The arrow keys are a bit smaller, though, which might rub some people the wrong way. The touchpad is pretty large, offering a smooth gliding surface, excellent responsiveness, and a satisfying click.

2. Upgradeability

The laptop delivers big on the upgradeability, offering two SODIMM RAM slots that can fit up to 64GB of DDR5 RAM, along with two M.2 PCIe x4 drives for future SSD expansion.

Here is our detailed teardown video, which shows how to access both the RAM and SSD slots.

3. Display quality

The display is pretty good solely for gaming, coming with a Full HD 144Hz IPS panel. The panel has comfortable viewing angles, a max brightness of  296 nits in the middle of the screen and 285 nits as an average for the whole area, with a maximum deviation of 8%. The contrast ratio is high enough – 1130:1. Sadly, the color overage isn’t that good, with the panel covering about half of the sRGB color gamut (53%).

The accuracy isn’t on par as well, with both the stock settings and our Design and Gaming profile failing to deliver a dE value that is equal to or below 2. Here are the results of our tests with the factory settings (left) and with our profile applied (right).

In addition to receiving efficient and health-friendly profiles, by buying LaptopMedia's products you also support the development of our labs, where we test devices in order to produce the most objective reviews possible.

Office Work

Office Work should be used mostly by users who spend most of the time looking at pieces of text, tables or just surfing. This profile aims to deliver better distinctness and clarity by keeping a flat gamma curve (2.20), native color temperature and perceptually accurate colors.

Design and Gaming

This profile is aimed at designers who work with colors professionally, and for games and movies as well. Design and Gaming takes display panels to their limits, making them as accurate as possible in the sRGB IEC61966-2-1 standard for Web and HDTV, at white point D65.


Health-Guard eliminates the harmful Pulse-Width Modulation (PWM) and reduces the negative Blue Light which affects our eyes and body. Since it’s custom tailored for every panel, it manages to keep the colors perceptually accurate. Health-Guard simulates paper so the pressure on the eyes is greatly reduced.

4. Battery life

What the Ryzen CPUs have always excelled at is delivering balanced battery life. The latest Zen 3+ 6000-series one-ups that, with the laptop’s 90Wh battery pack lasting for 14 hours and 10 minutes of Web browsing, or 10 hours and 50 minutes of video playback. Now, we conduct the battery tests with the Windows Better performance setting turned on, screen brightness adjusted to 120 nits, and all other programs turned off except for the one we are testing the notebook with.

1 reason NOT to buy the ASUS TUF Gaming A15 FA507

1. I/O

The I/O lacks any Thunderbolt support, due to the AMD CPU. The device also lacks an SD card reader, but if you don’t care about both, the I/O offers pretty good coverage. There are two USB Type-A 3.2 (Gen. 1) ports, two USB Type-C 3.2 (Gen. 1) ports, a LAN port, an HDMI 2.1 port, and a 3.5 mm audio jack. The Type-C ports also offer DisplayPort output with G-Sync support.
