ASUS TUF Gaming FX705DY and FX505DYWith Ryzen CPUs
The ASUS TUF Gaming FX705DY and FX505DY are some of the first of what is hopefully a plethora of AMD powered laptops, featuring the AMDÂ® Ryzenâ„¢ 5 3550H Processor which sports 4 cores and 8 threads along with 8 GPU cores in the embedded Vega 8 graphics.
The obvious difference between the two models is the screen size, the FX505DY gives you an option of a 15 inch IPS 1080P screen with a 60 or 120 Hz option while the FX705DY has only one option in the 17 inch IPS 1080P screen at 60 Hz.
The included GPU is a AMD Radeonâ„¢ RX 560X with 4GB VRAM, storage wise there’s a few options, Hard drive:
1TB 5400 rpm SSH or 1TB 5400 rpm SATA HDD, Solid state drive 128GB/256GB/512GB PCIeÂ® Gen3 SSD.
Weight comes in at 2.6KG for the FX705DY which also has a 4 -Cell 64 Wh polymer battery as opposed to 2.2KG and a 3 -Cell 48 Wh polymer battery for the FX505DY.
It will be interesting to see how these go in the market and what pricing we will see.
