ASUS TUF F15 FX507Z
The ASUS TUF F15 FX507Z may look identical to the FX506 at first glance, but there are actually numerous small changes. The corners, for example, are sharper than before while the faux-brushed glossy palm rests are now a flatter matte texture. Most of the bumps and alternating textures on the FX506 have been removed for a cleaner and more minimalistic look. Chassis materials appear to be otherwise the same as last year’s model for a similar level of rigidity. Asus has managed to cut down both the size and weight of the FX507 when compared to its FX506 predecessor. The newer model is slightly shorter (354.9 mm vs. 359.8 mm), slightly narrower (251.9 mm x 256 mm), and a fair bit lighter (2.1 kg vs. 2.3 kg) to be just as light as the thinner Zephyrus S15 design.
The ASUS TUF F15 FX507Z is equipped with the Intel Core i7-12700H is showing itself as not only a powerful processor, but also a comparatively efficient one. Surprisingly, the Alder Lake processor matches the Apple M1 Pro’s performance per watt at 40 W in benchmark suites like Cine-bench R23. The Core i7-12700H sees off representatives from the Ryzen 5000 series too, such as the Ryzen 7 5800H and the Ryzen 9 5900HX. The Core i7-12700H has the same 6 energy-efficient cores than the Core i9-12900HK, along with its 8 performance cores. As such, the 14-core processor has 20 threads, with Intel Hyper-Threading only active on the Core i7-12700H’s performance cores. Additionally, the Core i7-12700H has a 45 W TDP, which increases to 115 W under PL2.
The higher GeForce RTX 3060 TGP target when compared to last year’s model (140 W vs. 95 W) has naturally led to higher graphics performance. Users can expect a 10 to 20 percent performance boost over the FX506 equipped with the same RTX 3060 GPU. In fact, the FX507 is one of the fastest GeForce RTX 3060 laptops you can buy at the moment with results that are approximately 15 percent higher than the average laptop equipped with the same GPU.
The ASUS TUF F15 FX507Z can be equipped with a 15.6-inch FHD or WQHD IPS display. Our model came with the FHD model, which features a 144Hz refresh rate and a 3ms response time. The screen also features 250 nits of brightness, which is plenty bright for a gaming laptop. You also get 100 percent DCI-P3 coverage for some content creation. Additionally, the screen also boasted accurate color reproduction and offered excellent viewing angles. The display also supports Adaptive-Sync, which synchronizes the refresh rate with the GPU’s output to reduce lag, minimize stuttering, and eliminate visual tearing. I think the display on the new TUF gaming laptop is perfect if you opt for the RTX 3060 card. Not only does the laptop sport a solid panel for gaming, but it can also be used by creators, making it perfect for a gaming laptop.
Asus has revised the keyboard layout when compared to the FX506. Some of the auxiliary keys are now in their own row near the top left while the arrow keys are now slightly longer in length. The font on each key is also darker and grayer which unfortunately makes it more difficult to read. Both key feedback and the single-zone RGB backlight remain identical year-over-year. We find the keys to the lighter and softer side when compared to the keys on the Euro-com RX315 while being very close to the keyboards on most Zephyrus S models.
The ASUS TUF F15 FX507Z has dropped the dedicated mouse buttons on the FX506 for a larger click-pad surface area (13 x 7.8 cm vs. 10.6 x 8.0 cm). Gliding is smooth at all speeds with very little sticking, but feedback is weak and somewhat spongy when inputting clicks. Drag-and-drag actions are therefore not as comfortable as on the older FX506.
Asus has upgraded the cooling solution for the FX507 despite its lighter overall weight when compared to the FX506. Five fan modes are available via Armoury Crate: Windows, Silent, Performance, Turbo, and Manual. Windows or Silent is recommended when browsing or word processing to avoid pulsing fans.
Audio & Webcam
The Asus TUF Gaming F15 (2022) laptop comes with dual speakers that feature Dolby Atmos support and Hi-Res Audio certification. Sound quality is decent when using the laptop speakers, while the overall volume is high enough that dialogue in videos is audible even when sitting in a room with a noisy fan. I’d recommend using a headset for gaming as the fans can get loud and mess up the audio experience. The new TUF gaming laptop also comes with a 720p HD webcam for video calls. The notebook is also equipped with two-way AI Noise Cancelation that works for both upstream and downstream connections, letting you remove noise from your mic input and incoming feeds.
Aside from all the chassis updates, The ASUS TUF F15 FX507Z is most notable for its much higher TGP target of 140 W compared to only 95 W on the FX506. PC makers everywhere are using the same GeForce GPUs this year since Nvidia has yet to launch the successor to the mobile RTX 3000 series. Thus, in order to offer better graphics performance from the same GPU, the FX507 must consume more power than the FX506. The result is a GeForce RTX 3060 laptop is faster than most other laptops currently available equipped with the same GPU.
