Product Overview

Outlast the Competition

Geared for serious gaming and real-world durability, the TUF Gaming A15 is a fully-loaded Windows 10 Pro gaming laptop that can carry you to victory. Powered by the latest AMD Ryzen™ 7 CPU and GeForce GTX™ 1660Ti GPU, action-packed gameplay is fast, fluid, and fully saturates speedy IPS-level displays up to 144Hz. Efficient self-cleaning cooling combines with TUF's signature military-grade durability to make this battle-tested road warrior a reliable ally for gamers on the go.


Firepower for any Task

Armed with the strength to tackle any situation, the TUF Gaming A15 delivers dependable performance for gaming, streaming, and everything in between. A nimble AMD Ryzen™ 5 CPU helps to power through serious multitasking. Paired with up to a GeForce GTX™ 1660Ti discrete GPU, it can pump out reliably high frame rates in a wide range of popular games. Accelerate load times across a massive collection with a 512GB NVMe PCIe® SSD and space for a second SSD.


Military-Grade Toughness

In order to earn the TUF Gaming name, these laptops must successfully survive a rigorous battery of MIL-STD-810H tests. Test devices are exposed to drops, vibration, humidity, and extreme temperatures to ensure reliability. Dependable even in the harshest conditions, the A15 is more than capable of withstanding the accidental bumps and knocks of everyday life.


Expand your Sights

Featuring a speedy IPS-level panel up to 144Hz, the TUF Gaming A15 is perfect for fast-paced gaming. With adaptive sync, the display’s refresh rate synchronizes with the GPU’s frame rate to reduce lag, minimize stuttering, and eliminate visual tearing for ultra-smooth and immersive gameplay. Connect an external monitor for master-level multitasking via USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C™ with G-SYNC® enabled DisplayPort™ 1.4, and play 4K Ultra HD movies, videos, and games on big-screen TVs with HDMI 2.0b.


Optimized for Gaming

Arm yourself with a desktop-style keyboard optimized for gaming. Uniform RGB backlighting lets you express your own unique style, while highlighted WASD accents give you a visual shortcut to key movement commands. Overstroke technology triggers higher in each keystroke for faster responsiveness and effortless control. In true TUF form, each key is durable enough to withstand over 20 million presses for superb long-term reliability and precision.


Immersive Surround Sound

Two upgraded speakers with four cut-outs pump out 1.8x more sound with 2.7x deeper bass than previous generations for a richer audio experience. DTS:X™ Ultra technology delivers high-fidelity 7.1-channel virtual surround sound for theater-quality audio with stereo headsets. Get the drop on enemies with the enhanced spatial awareness that surround sound provides, or enjoy the nuances of layered musical performances. Up to 8 preset modes for music, movies, and gaming genres optimize your experience further, while a built-in equalizer lets you fine-tune your settings at will.


Lasting Cool

Comprehensive cooling ensures that every TUF Gaming laptop can sustain high performance and maintain effectiveness over a long life span. Multiple heatpipes and 3 heatsinks draw heat away from core components and dissipate it quickly even during intense gaming sessions. A self-cleaning cooling design ensures that each device’s cooling system stays strong for the long run, while operating modes balance performance and noise levels for the specific task at hand.


Upgrading Made Easy

Upgrading your RAM and SSD is simplified with an easy-upgrade design that gives you fast access to memory slots and storage bays. With a standard screwdriver, you can easily remove the screws at the bottom of the chassis to make your desired modifications. A special pop-open screw raises one corner of the bottom panel, making it easier to separate. Quickly upgrade or replace your RAM, or increase your responsive SSD capacity by adding a second PCIe® drive.


Comprehensive Connectivity

Lots of I/O ports let you connect your favorite devices and start working anywhere. Two USB 3.2 Type-A ports allow for speedy data transfers, with an additional USB 2.0 Type-A port that makes three total inputs for preferred peripherals. Bluetooth also lets you also pair mice, headphones, and other compatible devices for a cleaner, wire-free working space. Use the USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C™ with DisplayPort™ 1.4 to hook up a superfast G-SYNC™ display for silky smooth gaming. Hop online with 802.11ac (2x2) Wi-Fi for fast and reliable connectivity wherever Wi-Fi is available.

15.6" ASUS TUF Gaming A15 FA506IU-HN255T, Fortress Grey, 144Hz FHD, Ryzen 5, 8GB DDR4, 512GB SSD, GTX 1660Ti, Win10 Home is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product at the price point Very happy so far with this for the price, after a month or so of use. Good heat dissipation and good overall performance. Two RAM slots if you really want 16GB and a second SSD slot. The high hertz screen makes an appreciable difference to image quality and smoothness.

Questions & Answers

Is it possible for Scan to fit extra ram to this prior to dispatch without affecting warranty?

I would like 16GB of 3200mhz sodimm ram in this machine but it only has 8gb. If Scan won't fit it, can they recommend a 16GB (2X8GB) kit?
Asked by: James1
Please contact our Technical Sales team prior to placing the order for suitable memory. We would be unable to install this for you however.

What is the installed RAM, 1x8GB or 2x4GB?

Want to know if this particular model would benefit from me ordering a second stick to get dual channel performance
Asked by: Acra

HDD Space

Hi Does this have a HDD drive bay where the smaller battery leaves a space? You mention the spare M.2 slot - I see specs with the smaller battery usually have the extra empty bay Thanks
