ASUS Announces New AMD Ryzen-Powered Gaming Machines

By embracing emerging technologies and new platforms, ASUS has been able to create a variety of dynamic machines that deliver on gaming fundamentals in streamlined packages. The latest Ryzen mobile APUs have also boosted the TUF Gaming and ROG Zephyrus laptop lineups. The new TUF Gaming FX505DV raises the bar with a 144Hz/3ms display and a GeForce RTX2060 GPU tuned for fast-paced gameplay, and the sleek ROG Zephyrus G GA502 brings an ultraslim form factor and long battery life to a wider audience.

Durability and power unite

Earlier in 2019, TUF Gaming FX505DY was the first adopt AMD’s Picasso platform, combining a Ryzen mobile APU with discrete Radeon graphics and a FreeSync display. TUF Gaming FX505 DD/DT/DU laptops followed, pairing the same processor with GeForce®GTX graphics to maximize gaming performance.

The new TUF Gaming FX505DV is the next step forward. Teaming the latest Ryzen mobile APU with an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 GPU and 144Hz/3ms panel, FX505DV pumps out reliable frame rates that take full advantage of its NanoEdge display. The 144Hz refresh rate makes fast-paced gameplay much smoother than on standard 60Hz displays, and the quick response time keeps the picture sharp at speed, giving players a competitive advantage in esports and FPS gaming. Wide-view technology also ensures consistent colours when viewing the screen at any angle.

FX505DV is paired up with the AMD Ryzen 7 3750H mobile APU. The APU’s quad cores and eight threads offer enough power for everyday multitasking and productivity. Its performance is further bolstered by an efficient cooling system that pairs innovative internal design with on-demand switching that optimizes the system for the task at hand. With a keyboard shortcut, HyperFan lets users adjust system settings to optimize their cooling. Turbo mode pushes fan performance to the max, unleashing the power of FX505DV. Balanced mode optimizes operation to deliver strong performance with lower acoustic levels. Silent mode minimizes fan noise for less demanding tasks, like streaming videos.

Under the hood, the self-cleaning cooling system channels debris out of the laptop through anti-dust tunnels integrated into the fan housings. This preventative measure prevents dust buildup on the heatsink and fans, which is essential to maintaining long-term performance and stability, helping FX505DV live up to its TUF Gaming name.

Like its predecessors, FX505DV is defined by its durability. It meets stringent MIL-STD-810G standards in a range of tests, from basic drops and vibration to extreme temperatures and altitude.

Game anywhere

The mobile Ryzen platform makes ultraslim gaming more affordable in ROG Zephyrus G GA502. Despite being only 20mm thin and weighing 2.1kg, this machine delivers on gaming performance. Configurable with up to GeForce GTX 1660 Ti graphics and a 120Hz display framed by super-narrow bezels, GA502 capably cuts through a wide range of popular games. In Turbo mode, ROG Boost clocks the discrete GPU up to 1435MHz at 60W, which is ample power for everyday gaming and streaming.

Equipped with the same quad-core, eight-thread AMD Ryzen 7 3750H mobile APU as TUF Gaming FX505DV, modern multitasking is also well within the range of GA502. The processor optimizes performance and power consumption with SenseMI technology, allowing the battery to last up to nearly nine hours in the MobileMark benchmark, or provide almost seven hours of video playback or Wi-Fi web browsing.

Paired with a superfast NVMe SSD, Zephyrus G zips through everyday tasks with quick load times across games and applications, while up to 32GB of RAM guarantees enough memory for major multitasking. The laptop’s brushed black exterior and tasteful white keyboard backlighting distinguish it from other gaming machines, letting it blend in anywhere.

Bringing premium gaming to everyone

The collaboration between ASUS and AMD underscores the ASUS philosophy of taking early advantage of new platforms and emerging technologies, and experimenting with new ideas. As a result, ASUS has produced a wide range of affordable gaming machines suited to different interests and needs.

The military-grade TUF Gaming FX505DV puts mobile Ryzen horsepower into a reliable, do-it-all laptop that’s exceptionally durable. And ROG Zephyrus G GA502 provides an ultraslim, ultra-versatile machine portable enough for gamers who want to stream, work, and play anywhere.


ROG Zephyrus G GA502 and ASUS TUF Gaming FX505DV will be available in Q3 in Canada. Please contact your local ASUS representative for more information
