UNBOUNDED DESIGN, UNRIVALED TOUGHNESS
ASUS TUF Gaming FX505 will change the way you look at gaming laptops. It exceeds expectations, boasting impressive hardware and a compact, aggressively-designed chassis that's exceptionally tough. FX505 has a gaming desktop-inspired keyboard with RGB-backlit keys, a highlighted WASD key group, and Overstroke technology for fast and precise control. With a cutting-edge IPS-level NanoEdge display, and a MIL-STD-810G test certified durability, FX505 delivers an immersive gaming experience without breaking the bank!

IPS-LEVEL NANOEDGE DISPLAY
EXTREME IMMERSION ON AN ULTRAFAST DISPLAY
The new NanoEdge design has an even thinner 6.5mm bezel for extreme immersion in a much more compact package. FX505 features an IPS-level panel with up to an ultrafast 144Hz refresh rate for supersmooth gameplay with minimal motion blur. A 100% sRGB color gamut and wide-view angles ensure vivid and consistent colors, even when you're viewing it from extreme positions.

*Bezel width is the width between the screen and the laptop's frame.

ASUS TUF GAMINGTOUGHER 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.

*These tests are held in strict environmental conditions and under the supervision of quality test engineers. Product testing without proper controls or guidance may damage the product, and in some instances, create situations where there is significant risk of injury, disability, or death.

DESIGN
SOLIDLY BUILT
FX505 has three stand-out designs that exude toughness and power. Its aluminum Gunmetal Grey or black plastic cover features the distinctive Radiating-X design with a complementary sand-blasted or brushed finish. The hexagonal design on the underside of the laptop provides additional structural rigidity, completing the laptop's modern and aggressive lines.

*Red Fusion design has a premium plastic cover with a unique X design that glows red when in a dark environment.

HYPERSTRIKE KEYBOARD
DESKTOP-INSPIRED RGB-BACKLIT KEYBOARD
FX505 has a keyboard that's optimized for gaming, featuring RGB-backlighting* across all zones that can be controlled via the TUF Aura Core panel so you can express your own unique style. 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 recognizable gaps between the function keys. In addition, Overstroke technology registers keystrokes faster for precise and effortless control.

*RGB-backlit keyboard may not be available on some models.

GAME-READY PERFORMANCE
UNSTOPPABLE GAMING FIREPOWER
Despite its compact size, FX505 packs the punch of a full-fledged gaming desktop. It's powered by up to an 8th Generation Intel® Core™ i7-8750H hexa-core processor for speeds of up to 3.9GHz. With six cores and up to 23% more powerful than the previous generation, this latest processor allows for faster, more efficient multitasking, including simultaneous gaming, recording, and live-streaming. FX505 can also be specified with up to NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1060 graphics for vivid visuals and super smooth gameplay.

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.

*Specifications and features vary by models.

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 favorite movies in high-resolution or play online with fewer connection drops, even if FX505 is farther away from your router.

*Unless otherwise stated, claimed Wi-Fi speeds are based on theoretical performance. Actual performance may vary in real-world situations.

STORAGE
LOAD GAMES FASTER
The 1TB 5400rpm FireCuda SSHD loads games more than 2X faster than 5400rpm HDDs found in rival laptops. FireCuda's flash memory acts like a cache, saving frequently used data without accessing the hard drive to lower power consumption and improve performance.

*Unless otherwise stated, data read and write speeds are based on theoretical performance. Actual performance may vary in real-world situations.

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

I/O PORTS
I/O PORTS WITHIN EASY REACH
FX505 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.
