Despite everyone is gazing their eyes on ASUS ROG’s products at CES 2023, the brand is not forgetting the budget section of the TUF Gaming as they will be refreshing all the popular models as well.
The target for the newly updated design includes the F15, F17, A15, and A17 while a new member joins in as well in the form of the A16 Advantage Edition. The F and A series, at least in terms of exterior looks, are almost the same as 2022’s release so the refresh is geared more toward the internal computing parts. Not having too many aesthetic changes means that the modern and low-key-industrial color palette makes them great for both office and home use.
On the other hand, the full AMD package last debuted in ROG’s Strix G15/G17 lineup is finally coming to the durability-focused family that will unlock the highest performance with AMD-based CPU and GPU thanks to enabling Smart Access Memory and SmartShift power optimization.
