Product Overview ASUS TUF GAMING FX705: Amplified Immersion, Amazing Durability
Experience smoother, more immersive gameplay with the new ASUS TUF Gaming FX705 AMD Edition. Featuring a cutting-edge IPS-level NanoEdge display with AMD® FreeSync™ technology, and armed with the latest AMD Ryzen™ processor and discrete Radeon™ graphics, it delivers high-performance gaming at an affordable price. It’s also tested and certified to military-grade MIL-STD-810G standards, so you’re guaranteed toughness and durability that’s second to none.

IPS-Level Nanoedge Display: Extreme Immersion on an Ultrafast Display
The new NanoEdge design has a slimmer-than-ever 7.18mm bezel for extremely engaging visuals in a much more compact package. FX705 AMD Edition features an ultrafast IPS-level panel for supersmooth gameplay with minimal motion blur. Wide-view technology ensures consistent colours when you’re viewing the screen from extreme angles.

AMD FreeSync™ Technology: Supersmooth In-Game Visuals
With AMD FreeSync, the display’s refresh rate synchronises with the GPU’s frame rate to reduce lag, minimise stuttering, and eliminate visual tearing. Get ready to experience smoother gameplay in more immersive gaming worlds!

Game-Ready Performance: Engage the Enemy with AMD Firepower
Imagine a compact gaming laptop that punches well above its weight — that’s what FX705 AMD Edition brings to the party. It’s powered by the latest AMD Ryzen processor, which has quad cores and eight threads capable of speeds of up to 3.7GHz. And it’s not just for gaming, FX705 AMD Edition allows for faster, more efficient multitasking, including daily productivity tasks, surfing the net, and watching movies and videos. Paired with Radeon RX 560X graphics, you can rest assured that FX705 AMD Edition is up to the task, inside and outside the gaming arena.

ASUS TUF GAMING: Tougher Than Standard
Infused with the spirit of The Ultimate Force (TUF), FX705 AMD Edition has passed a series of rigorous military-grade MIL-STD-810G durability 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, FX705 AMD Edition has been pushed to the limit to ensure only the very best for gamers.

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 shock force that's double the normal ASUS standard quality test.

Withstands Environmental Extremes
ASUS engineers ramped up the 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: Solid Build Quality
FX705 AMD Edition features a stand-out design that exude toughness and power. Its black plastic cover features the distinctive Radiating-X design with a matching brushed finish. The hexagonal design on the underside of the chassis provides additional structural rigidity, completing the laptop's modern and aggressive lines.

HyperStrike Keyboard: Desktop-Inspired LED-Backlit Keyboard
FX705 AMD Edition has a keyboard that's optimised for gaming, featuring Red LED backlighting so you can see the keys you need when gaming come day or night. Exclusive HyperStrike technology ensures more accurate typing and improved ergonomics thanks to a desktop-inspired layout with a highlighted WASD key group, broader space bar, isolated arrow keys, and recognisable gaps between the function keys. In addition, Overstroke technology registers keystrokes faster for precise and effortless control.

20-Million-Keystroke Durability
FX705 AMD Edition has an extremely durable keyboard with keys that can endure up to 20-million key presses — twice the industry standard. It promises an extended lifespan without compromising accuracy and comfort.

Desktop-Inspired Layout
With a layout modelled on gaming desktop keyboards, the keyboard on FX705 AMD Edition gives you precise control. The entire module is designed for the way your fingers are used to typing and playing, with recognisable gaps between the function keys, and isolated arrow keys for easy identification.

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 consists of the Anti-Dust Cooling (ADC) system and HyperFan to ensure exceptional cooling during gaming marathons. Cooling is also improved by the patented trapezoid-cut lid and intelligent parallel fan placement.

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.

The system automatically adjusts fan speeds according to CPU and GPU temperatures. Switch between Turbo, Balanced, and Silent modes to suit the situation at hand. Turbo mode is the most aggressive setting, providing the highest fan speeds and frequencies to fully exploit the power of FX705 AMD Edition. Balanced mode optimises performance and cooling to lower noise levels under 45dB for gaming, while Silent mode further curbs fan noise and is perfect for surfing the net, getting work done, or watching a movie. A default Windows profile with stock settings or a Manual mode let you quickly adjust fan speeds individually by a convenient keyboard shortcut.

Optimised Airflow
Every part of FX705 AMD Edition serves to improve system stability and efficiency. The dual fans are symmetrically placed to maximise 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 optimised settings for games, sports, and movies, and has a built-in equaliser for additional fine-tuning.

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 — FX705 AMD Edition pairs its quad-core processor with support for up to 32GB of dual-channel DDR4 2400MHz memory for improved performance and energy efficiency.

Exclusive Software: Unified System Tuning and Personalisation
TUF Gaming Armoury Crate puts all essential system controls at your fingertips in a single utility. You can easily change settings for both and define up to four game profiles that automatically make adjustments when you launch your favourite titles. These options are just the beginning for what will become an even more versatile tool.

I/O Ports Within Easy Reach
FX705 AMD Edition features a host of I/O ports including a single USB 2.0 and two USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-A ports for your gaming peripherals, as well as HDMI 2.0 to connect to an external display. All ports are situated on the left side of the laptop so there's nothing to interfere with right-handed mousing.
