If the Asus ROG Zephyrus M16 don’t quite fit your budget, then consider the new Asus TUF Gaming laptops. Available with Intel’s latest 12th gen chip or AMD’s equally new Ryzen 6000 processor, this gaming laptop series offers good value for money.
Asus TUF Gaming A15
Let’s start with the more affordable laptop in the series, the TUF Gaming A15. Offered in four different configurations, all variants are powered by a Ryzen 7 6800H octa-core processor. The base model with an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3050 costs RM4,999, while the RTX 3050 Ti configuration goes for RM5,199; both feature 8GB of RAM and a 512GB SSD.
A tier up is the RTX 3060 model of the TUF Gaming A15. Packed with 16GB of RAM and a 512GB SSD, it retails at RM6,199. And then there’s the range-topping model with the same GPU, but with a brighter, more vibrant display, and a larger 1TB SSD for RM6,699.
Asus TUF Gaming F15
Next, we have the TUF Gaming F15, which is essentially the Intel version of the A15. Available in three variants, all of them are equipped with a Core i7-12700H processor and 512GB of SSD storage.
