Here is an overview of how this ASUS TUF FX505GT-AB73 looks.
Now comes the front section, and this ASUS TUF FX505GT-AB73 has an outstanding design on the screen side. It has a thin bezel on the left and right side that expands its screen look, plus the gamers also prefer a laptop with a thin bezel.
On the downside bezel, the branding of ASUS is done. ASUS TUF FX505GT-AB73 has strong and gamer-friendly hinges that help rotate your laptop’s screen without any problem.

Now comes the turn of speed carriers of this ASUS TUF FX505GT-AB73 laptop, and you know how important they are.
Your laptop’s processor is the primary thing where all the speeding tasks are carried. So what do you expect from ASUS? Has ASUS inserted a fast processor inside it?
Well, the answer is yes and here are some reasons. ASUS TUF FX505GT-AB73 comes in an Intel Core i7-9750H processor of the 9th generation. This 9th generation processor has fantastic output, and it executes every task at a fast speed. It gives an excellent performance because it has 6 cores and 12 threads. If your laptop’s threads are high, your working becomes faster and easier. Your laptop runs at a fantastic speed when you have more cores and threads.
The base frequency of the ASUS TUF FX505GT-AB73 laptop’s processor is 2.60 GHz. What do you think? This base frequency is enough. Well, for simple tasks, this base frequency is enough. Your speed will not decrease while multitasking because this base frequency is enough, but this base frequency is not enough to perform a heavy task.
For that, the turbo frequency comes in working. The Max Turbo Frequency of this ASUS TUF FX505GT-AB73 laptop’s processor is 4.50 GHz. So if you assign any heavy task, then this turbo frequency allows you to perform it.
This 4.50 GHz turbo frequency is higher than expected. When this frequency works with 6 cores and 12 threads, it delivers an outstanding speed. You will be surprised after performing heavy tasks because your laptop will not feel heavy. Its working will look like it’s normal usage.
The last thing related to its processor is the Cache Memory. So you get a 12 MB Cache Memory with this ASUS TUF FX505GT-AB73 laptop, and it is enough to execute the repeated task.
Video Memory (Graphics Card)
ASUS TUF FX505GT-AB73 has an outstanding graphics card with high bandwidth and enough CUDA Cores to run every game fast. You can run several heavy games, heavy programs, and some other development programs that require a graphics card.
So the graphics card inside this laptop is GeForce GTX 1650, and it has some excellent features. This GeForce GTX 1650 is super fast and runs every game you want. Before revealing the games you can play on this graphics card, I’ll describe its specs.
So the GeForce GTX 1650 comes in 4 GB memory, and 4 GB memory is enough to run big games. You can run heavy software like Adobe Photoshop and Blender without any problem.
The GeForce GTX 1650 has 128 bits, and these bits increase the speed of data travel. Whenever a heavy graphics scene appears, these 128 bits calculate current scene graphics in less than no time. After calculating the image quality in that scene, they deliver a unique look.
The look of that scene also depends on the monitor you use. This ASUS TUF FX505GT-AB73 laptop’s refresh rate is 144Hz, so don’t worry because you will see excellent image quality in every game. This GeForce GTX 1650’s memory bandwidth is 128 GB/S. It is the best memory for playing games faster.
Another excellent feature that increases the image quality inside any game is the G-Sync feature. This G-Sync feature inside the GTX 1650 increases the image’s display, and here’s how:
Whenever this G-Sync feature is enabled, the image loads faster, and everything is noticed inside that image with the help of this G-Sync. You can see every single dot in that image clearly and in high brightness because of this G-Sync feature. Even if a mosquito passes in front of our player, you can see that scene clearly because of this G-Sync.
So that was its G-Sync feature, and now I am going to mention the last feature that other graphics cards don’t have. The last thing is its NVIDIA Ansel feature, and that is available only in these NVIDIA cards.
I’ve seen many gamers posting screenshots while playing games, but the screenshot is not clear because they use the PRINT SCREEN button to take that picture, but now you’ll not face this issue because of this NVIDIA Ansel feature.
This NVIDIA Ansel feature allows you to take pictures inside the game. Whenever you are playing any game and take a picture of that scene, use this NVIDIA Ansel feature. With this feature, the quality of that screenshot will be in 1080p. You can take high-quality pictures inside the game with the help of this Ansel feature.
So that’s all this GeForce GTX 1650 graphics card will deliver, and I think you got the best graphics card with this ASUS TUF FX505GT-AB73 laptop. You have got complete control over every game you play because of this great graphics card.
So that’s all for the processor of ASUS TUF FX505GT-AB73, and after reading the features, you can expect a high-quality processor with this ASUS TUF FX505GT-AB73 laptop.
RAM (Random Access Memory)
After having a powerful processor and graphics card, now comes the turn of another powerful thing, and it gives a slight boost in your laptop’s speed. I am talking about RAM, and most people think that RAM plays a primary role in speeding your laptop, but it cannot compete with processor and graphics card. But that doesn’t mean you should not focus on RAM.
Your RAM is important because all instructions are stored in it. So what do you think? How much RAM is inserted inside the ASUS TUF FX505GT-AB73 laptop?
Well, you get an 8 GB RAM of DDR4 format. DDR4 is the newest technology, and its speed is faster than DDR2 and DDR3 RAMs. This 8 GB RAM is enough to run heavy games and programs when you have this GeForce GTX 1650 graphics card and a Processor of the Core i7 series.
So 8 GB RAM with a bus speed of 2666MHz is the best one because all your programs will smoothly run because of its higher bus speed.
In the end, the ASUS TUF FX505GT-AB73 has good RAM with a high bus speed and in DDR4 format.
Storage Space (Hard Drive)
ASUS TUF FX505GT-AB73 has a good storage space with a fast SSD Hard. The storage space is enough, and you can store whatever you want.
The ASUS TUF FX505GT-AB73 comes in a PCIe SSD hard drive of 512 GB. This PCIe SSD hard drive is faster than a standard hard drive. This PCIe SSD hard drive is small in size, but still, its speed is faster than other hard drives.
This PCIe SSD hard drive will speed your laptop, and you’ll be able to execute all tasks without any problem. The reason it increases your laptop’s speed is simple. You get a 1550MB/s read speed, and 850MB/s write speed, whereas the standard SSDs have a read speed of 500MB/s and a write speed of 380MB/s.
That is the only reason these PCIe SSD hard drives are faster than others. You get enough to read and write speed with this hard drive. You can perform loads of tasks on your ASUS TUF FX505GT-AB73 laptop without any decrease in speed.
This PCIe SSD hard lets you run every app at a faster speed. When an Intel Core i7 processor, GeForce GTX 1050, and 8 GB RAM are inserted, your laptop runs like thunder. No heavy app or game can slow your computer when you have all these things inserted in your ASUS TUF FX505GT-AB73 laptop.
Battery timing is an essential aspect of every laptop. If you have a laptop with an RTX 3070 GPU, but its battery timing isn’t good, you have a useless laptop then. Battery Timing matters the most because of many reasons.
So the ASUS TUF FX505GT-AB73 has a lithium-ion battery. It gives a backup of 4-5 hours for everyday use. If you want to play games on it and increase the graphics of every game, you will get 3 hours of timing.
3 hours with ultra-high graphics are good, but you get 4-5 hours if you perform regular tasks. In the end, the battery timing is good, and you can use this ASUS TUF FX505GT-AB73 laptop without any tension.
After calculating every speed parameter, now comes the turn of other things. The keyboard of ASUS TUF FX505GT-AB73 is outstanding, and it has an RGB-backlit that improves its look. You can easily benefit from this RGB-backlit whenever you work in a dark environment.
