ASUS today announced the all-new TUF Gaming A16 Advantage™ Edition, an all-AMD gaming laptop with a redesigned chassis and an incredibly immersive 16-inch display. The TUF Gaming A15, A17, F15 and F17 laptops also make a triumphant return, sporting the latest silicon from AMD, Intel®, and NVIDIA® to power players into the next generation of gaming performance.
TUF A16 Advantage™ Edition announced
Built for serious gaming with subtle styling, the TUF Gaming A16 Advantage™ Edition is a sleek gaming laptop built to demolish the competition. Powered completely by AMD, the TUF Gaming A16 features up to an AMD Ryzen™ 9 Zen 4 processor and AMD Radeon™ RDNA™ 3 mobile graphics. “AMD and ASUS have partnered to deliver our latest ‘Zen 4’ and RDNA 3 technologies into the most innovative form factors,” said Jason Banta, CVP and GM OEM PC. “The TUF Gaming A16 Advantage™ Edition delivers blistering gaming performance and outstanding power efficiency in a sleek portable chassis.”
As an AMD Advantage™ Edition machine, ASUS and AMD have worked together to leverage both hardware and software to their full potential, ensuring the TUF Gaming A16 is fully compatible with AMD’s latest gaming-centric features. Exclusive features like AMD SmartShift and AMD Smart Access Memory™ technologies [i] enhance system performance and efficiency, while AMD SmartAccess Graphics technology[ii] makes the most of every frame by automating switching between integrated and discrete graphics or provides full manual control with a dedicated MUX switch.
All that horsepower drives an immersive 16-inch panel with narrow bezels and a huge 90% screen-to-body ratio. Even in frenetic titles, the QHD 240 Hz refresh rates let the TUF Gaming A16 keep up with the pros. With AMD FreeSync™ Premium technology[iii], the display’s refresh rate synchronizes with the GPU’s output to reduce lag, minimize stuttering, and eliminate visual tearing for ultra-smooth and lifelike gameplay. A16:10 aspect ratio display gives incredible immersion and image detail in slower paced titles.
The TUF Gaming A16 boasts even more upgrades under the hood. 4800 MHz DDR5 RAM keep games and programs feeling snappy and responsive, while up to 2 TB of PCIe® Gen4 storage leaves plenty of room for even the largest game libraries. USB4® support allows for compatibility with the latest peripherals and high-speed external storage, while a 90 Wh battery and USB-C® power delivery keep the TUF Gaming A16 running all day long.
The TUF Gaming family has always been inspired by the durability and reliability of military-grade equipment, and the A16 leans further into that history with the brand-new Sandstorm colorway. Inspired by the wastelands of battlefields, this custom anodized aluminum finish is the perfect paintjob for a military-grade laptop. For those looking to keep a lower profile, Off-Black also makes a return to help gamers to blend in with the crowd. The machine is also certified to meet MIL-STD-810H spec, guaranteeing its reliability across a range of demanding tests, proving that the TUF Gaming A16 is the perfect blend of style and durability.
Generation Intel Core™ i9-13900H processor, with a mix of Performance and Efficient-cores carefully balancing gaming and multitasking power. The 2023 ASUS TUF Gaming A15 and TUF Gaming A17 come equipped with up to an AMD Ryzen 9 Zen 4 processor, leveraging incredible gaming performance with serious battery endurance. All four models sport up to the latest NVIDIA GeForce RTX™ 40 Series Laptop GPUs with G-SYNC® support, and feature a max TGP of 140 W with Dynamic Boost. This pairing of high-powered CPUs and high-performance mobile GPUs delivers incredible gaming performance in all the latest titles.
New for 2023, all four models now feature a MUX Switch with NVIDIA Advanced Optimus, ensuring next-level performance. A MUX Switch allows a laptop to bypass the integrated graphics when gaming, increasing performance and reducing latency, and the addition of NVIDIA Advanced Optimus allows this process to happen automatically, giving gamers increased performance in games without needing to press a single button.
High-performance hardware demands superior cooling. As part of its cooling system, dual Arc Flow Fans™ feature an 84-blade design, with blades that taper down to just 0.1 mm to reduce turbulence. These fans provide up to 13% more airflow than their predecessor, despite being quieter than last year’s design, and access to higher GPU power targets for even more performance. With its cooling design, the TUF Gaming family is sure to give gamers every advantage in 2023.
