ASUS TUF Gaming F15 (FX507, 2023) review – higher price but better performance
The ASUS TUF Gaming F15 (FX507, 2023) has a very good build quality. Its port selection is very good with a couple of USB Type-As, a Thunderbolt 4 connector, and a fully-packed USB Type-C port. In addition, you get a real HDMI 2.1 connector, a LAN port, and an Audio jack. What we’re missing is an SD card reader.
On the bright side, the port situation on the inside is good too. You get two DDR4 SODIMM slots for memory expansion and two M.2 PCIe x4 slots for Gen 4 SSDs.
Let’s not forget the great battery life. We got about 13 hours of Web browsing, or nearly 11 hours and 30 minutes of video playback. This is an outstanding result for a gaming machine. However, you have to keep in mind that there is one setting that needs to be enabled.
We’re talking about the adaptive display, which can run at 144Hz, as well as at 60Hz. This is a huge factor in the efficiency we saw during this notebook’s battery test.
ASUS TUF Gaming F15 (FX507, 2023)’s IPS panel has a Full HD resolution, comfortable viewing angles, and a decent contrast ratio. It covers 92% of the sRGB color gamut, while our Gaming and Web design profile helps it achieve great color accuracy.
In addition, the display doesn’t use PWM for brightness adjustment. It refreshes at 144Hz, but the pixel response times are a bit slow, which may lead to ghosting.
Unfortunately, we can’t simply ignore the poor CPU performance. We really hope that ASUS has an update in the future that will fix it. There is a chance that our unit is faulty too, but we won’t place our bets on that.
At the end of the day, this device is pretty good for gaming. Also, photo editing takes almost no time at all. If you don’t need it for something like 3D modeling, you are going to have a good time with this machine.
