The ASUS TUF Dash 15 is geared towards gaming and general performance with a midrange price, packing an Intel i7 processor and Nvidia RTX 3060 graphics card. It offers a substantial 512GB of storage and 16GB of RAM. With a 76Wh battery and a weight of just over 4 pounds, it balances power and portability. The 15.6-inch IPS display has a 1920 x 1080 resolution and a high refresh rate but it's not a touchscreen. It features a good build quality and manages heat well, with a decent battery life for typical usage. It comes with Windows 11 Home and supports hardware ray tracing and DLSS, which are great for gaming. The laptop has a backlit keyboard with a number pad, and plenty of ports including USB-C and HDMI, but no Thunderbolt 3. It's suitable for intensive gaming, 3D rendering, and engineering tasks, but if you prioritize very high-resolution displays or longer battery life, you might want to explore other options.

Sascha Mölck | July 2022
"The Asus TUF Dash F15 FX517ZR is a laptop with mobile RTX 3070 and acceptable battery life. The Asus TUF Dash F15 was made for high-performance applications like video editing, rendering, and gaming. The laptop can manage the latter in QHD resolution and at high to maximum settings. However, the focus isn't on maximum performance, but instead, it's about a compromise between performance and portability."
