A 100% sRGB colour gamut and wide-view angles ensure vivid and consistent colours, even when you're viewing it from extreme positions.

ASUS TUF Gaming: Tougher Than Standard
Infused with the spirit of The Ultimate Force (TUF), FX505 passes a series of rigorous MIL-STD-810G tests, successfully surviving varying conditions including solar radiation exposure, high altitude, and temperature extremes. It's certified to endure day-to-day use, from accidental knocks to sudden drops on a desk. Durable and stable, FX505 has been pushed to the limit to ensure only the very best for gamers.

• Shock & Vibration.
• Temperature.
• Humidity.
• Altitude.
• Solar-Radiation.

Extremely Robust
Physical shock tests ensure every TUF Gaming laptop resists damage from unexpected drops, knocks, and bumps during shipment and daily use. The reinforced chassis can withstand a force that's double the normal ASUS standard quality test. In addition, extensive vibration testing ensures all interior parts remain attached and maintain integrity.

Withstands Environmental Extremes
ASUS engineers amped up environmental testing, subjecting each TUF Gaming laptop to extreme temperatures and humidity cycles, as well as high altitude testing to replicate inflight use or transport via air freight. Solar radiation testing ensures the laptop won't degrade even after prolonged to direct sunlight.

Design: Solidly Built
FX505 has a stand-out design that exudes toughness and power. Its black plastic cover features the distinctive Radiating-X design with a complementary brushed finish. The hexagonal design on the underside of the laptop provides additional structural rigidity, completing the laptop's modern and aggressive lines.

• Straight Line between Enter/ Shift/ Ctrl.
• Space between Function Keys.
• Isolated Arrow Keys.
• Extended Space Bar.

Overstroke Technology
Overstroke technology provides each key with 1.8mm travel distance for improved responsiveness. The keys are calibrated to require just 62 gram-force (gf) for activation, and feature an extended overstroke distance for more comfortable typing.

Thermal: HyperCool Technology Improves Durability
ASUS-exclusive HyperCool technology comprises of the Anti-Dust Cooling (ADC) system and Fan Overboost technology to ensure exceptional cooling during gaming marathons. Furthermore, cooling is also improved by the patented trapezoid-cut lid and intelligent parallel fan placement.

• Anti-Dust Cooling To Prolong Component Lifespan.
• Powerful Dual Fan Design.
• Fan Overboost Technology.
• Patented Trapezoid-cut Lid.

Anti-Dust Tunnels
The ADC system has an exclusive internal design that forces dust particles and dirt to exit the chassis through two anti-dust tunnels located at the edges of the fans. This prevents the thermal fins from becoming caked in grime, preserving performance in the long run to improve both system longevity and reliability.

Fan Overboost
The system can automatically adjust fan speeds according to CPU and GPU temperatures, but you also have the option to switch between Fan Overboost, Balanced, and Silent modes to suit the situation at hand. Fan Overboost is the most aggressive setting, providing the fastest fan speeds to fully exploit the power of FX505. Silent mode curbs fan noise, so it's perfect when you're surfing the net, getting work done, or watching a movie.

Optimized Airflow
Every part of FX505 serves to improve system stability and efficiency. The dual fans are symmetrically placed to maximize airflow through the system. They pump warm air out the back, where the patented trapezoid-cut lid avoids interference with the exhaust vents, increasing thermal efficiency by up to 25% over traditional designs.

Audio: Immersive DTS Surround Sound
DTS Headphone: X™ technology delivers immersive, high-fidelity 7.1-channel virtual surround sound for theater-quality audio, even when you're using a headset. It features optimized settings for games, sports, and movies, and has a built-in equalizer for additional fine-tuning.

WI-FI: Faster Speeds, Wider Coverage
FX505 features one of the fastest Wi-Fi standards available — the latest Intel 802.11ac Wave 2 boasts data transfer rates of up to an incredible 1.7Gbps — 12X faster than baseline 802.11b/g/n! Additionally, the 2x2 MIMO configuration provides up to 30% wider coverage than a 1x1 setup. Stream your favourite movies in high-resolution or play online with fewer connection drops, even if FX505 is farther away from your router.

Storage: Load Games Faster
A 256GB M.2 PCIe NVMe SSD provides the ultimate in high speed storage, with plenty of capacity to act as a lightning fast boot drive and making it the best place to install all your game for ultra-fast game loading times. Combined with a 1TB HDD you also have tons of space to store all your other files including documents, music, & photos.

Memory: High-Performance Memory
Get ready for some serious multitasking — FX505 pairs its hexa-core processor with support for up to 32GB of dual-channel DDR4 2666MHz memory for improved performance and energy efficiency.
