This right here is the ASUS TUF gaming FX504 otherwise known in other markets as the FX80GE and it is a laptop that I bought because of the spec and sadly it’s not as good as it seems in fact spoiler alert here this is not a laptop you want to actually buy so the specs on paper seem really good an i7 the 8750 H that’s the latest 8th generation 6 cores 12 threads 8 gigabytes of double data rate for DRAM I don’t we ain’t gigabyte nvme SSD it has wireless AC a one terabyte hard drive and the Nvidia 1050 Ti GPU with 4 gigabytes of RAM but sadly it turned out to be a case of on paper it looks great but in reality it’s not so let’s find out why we get to screen options with this particular model here so you can either get a fast 120 hertz TN panel with poor vertical viewing angles or an IPS panel which is the one I have here so the brightness isn’t really that great it tops out at 212 lux ideally I like to see over 250 it is matte coated so it’s great for glare you’re not gonna see a lot of glare and things with those glossy panels that you do see but have a look at the Adobe RGB coverage so you can see right here that it’s only 48 percent and 64% of s RGB so this is not a screen for professionals getting access to the internals isn’t difficult you just have to remove 11 screws and then pry off the red case the SSD is upgradable it’s a high next one right here and then the wireless card as well if you’re not happy with the one they’ve gone with then this can also be replaced and RAM upgrades are very easy you don’t need to pull out and swap around the motherboard same goes for that 2.5 inch drive very easy to replace this with a larger one if you’re not happy 1 terabyte or put in a faster SATA 3 SSD the battery pack is rather small 48 watt hours only it’s not the smallest for this kind of hardware MSI have only 41 on one of their particular models that I’ll probably be reviewing later on so this is only good for about 2 and a half hours of gaming or around 4 to 5 hours as expected for a gaming laptop you’re not gonna get the best battery life and it’s definitely not the case here now this is what I do not recommend this laptop here they’re cooling on it just isn’t sufficient enough and as I snow this this is why they restrict with the bios with the power limits it’ll chop down to near 25 watts once it starts to get a little hot because they know the cooling is not gonna do a sufficient enough job unless you use that fan over booster mode which results in fair noise of up to 55 decibels then you get the 45 watts so they’re going to use the one copper transfer heat pipe here now that is connected to both the CPU and GPU and then this tiny little auxilary one which would just pan past but I’ll go back and show you that now other manufacturers like MSI Dell HP ASA they’re using normally three four even five copper transfer heat pipes with the same exact spec now one of the things I do like about this laptop here is the keyboard so only they in a miracle keyboard is really crammed and the rest is quite spacious I like what they’ve done with the space bar the power button as well is separated away from the keyboard typing on it as good it’s firm and I’d even rate it as being better than the likes of the MSI SteelSeries keyboards the backlight behind these keys it’s individual its birch as you can see here it’s just in red there’s no RGB on this one and you have three different settings the palm rest is made out of this textured plastic and as a result it doesn’t tend to show the fingerprints and smudges as bad as other laptops some of the worse that I have seen er MSI’s GL 62 in the 63 series they smudge up so easy but not really the case here you do get a little bit of it though now this touchpad is one of the better ones for a gaming laptop it is using Windows precision drivers now I have noticed that sometimes right in the middle here that the touch sensitivity and accuracy isn’t quite there but overall it is an above-average touch pad I’ve used here for a gaming laptop there Zeus logo along the top is in black so it doesn’t really stand out that much just below it on the top of the keyboard here you’ll see an intake vent there’s also intakes around and actually through the then the status LEDs here that when you close the lid you can actually still see them because of that cutout on the bottom of it the lid also continues with that brushed plastic look that almost looks like a brushed alloy but it isn’t there is a little bit of flex on the lid but overall not too bad bill quality I am impressed with this one and it definitely stands up to what the name suggests as a tough laptop it seems a little bit tougher than normal so good plastics on this then on the rear we got to exit vents so this is where all the hot air is going to be coming out I prefer this design I don’t like side vented ones that tend to heat up your hands or your mouse hand slim pickings when it comes to our port selection so a 3.5 millimeter headphone jack we got 2 USB 3 ports USB 2 and then HDMI 1.4 a sadly now this to me should be HDMI to I know that the Nvidia 1050 Ti is not really capable at all at driving games in 4k but it’s still nice to be able to run your desktop 4k and 60 Hertz also get Ethernet there which is a gigabit port and then the ldcm for charging and on the right a Kensington lock slot so it is missing an SD card reader it should have mini display out I believe as well and even a Thunderbolt 3 port would be nice so they really cheaped out a little bit here as zeus with this considering what the competition is offering so the power brick is relatively large and this is as expected for a gaming laptop it’s a hundred and twenty watts and it will charge that 48 watt hour battery in just over 1 hour and 30 minutes either side of the laptop you will find these side firing speakers the loudness is okay maxes out about 80 decibels but what it is lacking in is bass because it doesn’t have a little sub underneath which i feel they could have added but i’ll give you a sample of those speakers now all right so let’s take a look now at the performance this is Cinebench r15 which is a good little test here of the core i7 8750 h so right now I have it on what is the balanced fan profile now these fan profiles are actually linked as well to this thermal limits we have so the TDP the TDP is 45 watts on this particular CPU but what keeps happening with this one as you’ll see right here when you have a look at this graph here in Intel XT you then we actually end up limiting itself right back here it did it – you can see when we get power limit throttling it will limit itself down to 2.2 gigahertz or 2.5 stuck at 25 watts as the the power limit which is right here okay 45 is the stock but it’s linked to the fan probably file so this is a problem you keep running into whatever you do it starts to either power limits rot all and if you put it in the overboost mode which I will do now so function f5 into the fan of every SMO the fans get even louder this is the only way you can get maximum performance then this is what happens you can see it’s been triggering right here a lot of thermal throttling so it will peak at about 98 degrees but it doesn’t go over that at least that’s one good thing but the fan is up to 55 decibels it’s just getting far too loud there so we repeat tests here like Cinebench then you’re able to get slightly higher scores but eventually it will go back to the 25 watts power limit because as you snow there’s a problem with this laptop even after the bias updates the cooling is not good enough so they have to cap the power limits throttling down that CPU which is really disappointing so what you are paying for you are not getting now if you under volt something we shouldn’t really have to do so if you under volt then you’re able to get very good Cinebench scores out of this particular CPU you can see right here and I mean that’s an amazing score that is really good considering that this is a laptop so that is not bad at all now I do have some other complaints with the hardware so they’ve card even further corners here so not just the cooling with a cop heat-transfer pipes the SSD alright it’s an nvme SSD you get reasonable read speeds okay that’s good but look at the write speeds they’re quite low other manufacturers MSI HP Dell they are going with faster drives so really they could have gone better with this another real disappointment is the wireless card so the wireless card is a real tech 88 21 C II and this thing here not really that fast about 180 megabits per second only is the maximum speeds you will get out of it so that’s not good at all I’ll show you right here so this is just a typical Wireless test I’m able to get double this on my mean up bug Pro so it’s really not good I even show you an example of steam downloading so only fourteen point seven minutes per second I can get up to 39 35 on other laptops so not a good card there at all here’s the Geekbench full score this is with an under volts you get a really impressive multi-core score here for this type of hardware I mean this is crazy it’s a really good score but the single core score considering a maximum turbo of our 4.1 not actually that good there so it doesn’t really want to hold that full point one two about again this is a Zeus crippling the CPU a little bit because of the insufficient cooling so that is really not good at all to see now general performance I will not actually go over this because this CPU handles everything fine everything you can throw it at multitasking like crazy 4k streaming websites Chrome all that perfect there’s no need for me to really touch that fire strike if you haven’t seen my first video the unboxing video get to score of around our 7000 which isn’t bad and yet another issue cropped up so every time I’ve done a reboot I’ve tried messing with drivers so the camera does seem to work but to give you a sample of the webcam here do a recording I keep getting this so it keeps having this error and then it just crashes right out on me so that isn’t good to see I’m not sure what’s behind there but this is a Windows problem not really a problem of the laptop my feel now a 4k sadly because this isn’t HDMI to spec testing it out of call that’s gonna just camp out at 30 Hertz so you won’t be gaming at 4k not with the 1050 Ti but it would be nice to run desktop of course at 60 Hertz at least at 4k okay so just how does it gain this after all is a gaming laptop and I’m happy to report here the gaming performance is very decent from the 1050 tee I highly recommend going for the 1050 tee I don’t go for the 1050 I feel especially with the 2 gigabytes of RAM because it’s not as fast this one’s a good about 30% faster than that model does GPU so all the titles out there that I did test if you haven’t seen my gaming review that was recorded in 60 frames per second so it’s a lot more smoother you can see just how these games do run that they’re all good the titles at 1080p you don’t need to lower the resolution the only thing you might have to lower on some of the more demanding games like which the three you can see now for example is perhaps set that sitting on medium or low and lower down some of those more demanding visual settings to get a more smoother framerate and experience but overall gaming on this laptop is good yes the temperatures get a little bit high and yes you do hear that fan it’s gonna be continually on and relatively loud around about 50 decibels up to 55 so I wanted to point out and focus more on the fan noise so at the moment I’m not really doing something super strenuous take a look at the CPU load you can see where I’m a mouse cursor is at the moment it’s about 1920 4% temperatures look at reaching 88 degrees two more throttling I’m in the balanced mode as well with the fans and the fan noise is ridiculous for what I’m doing it’s just too loud I’ll give you a sample of it right now but if you don’t like fan noise then you definitely don’t want to buy this laptop but here’s that fan noise so internal temp GPU maxes out about 76 degrees the CPU I have shown you getting up to 89 degrees but where it does get warm is just her around the keyboard here does get quite a hot to the touch I’ve seen it get up to 48 degrees this is after one hour of game you can see it’s just touching now almost 49 degrees Celsius there so getting quite hot there and this is on the cooler booster well the overboost mode the palm rest is always good so the primers do you can see here around 26 degrees so that’s that’s good you’re not going to get sweetie hot palms using this it’s just around the keyboard which concerns me a little with those temperatures which continually start to slowly creep up the longer you game on this so there we go as you gather from the start of this video that this is not a laptop to get and I’m really disappointed in a Zeus with this one they’ve just cut so many corners did they not even test this laptop I don’t understand this they know there’s a problem with it because look at what they’re doing when it comes to the power limits they’re throttling it back they’re forcing the user to use the overboost fan mode which puts it in the maximum rpms to try and keep it as cool as possible but even then it will thermal throttle and you have to do some crazy under vaulting on this to get the kind of performance that you’re paying for that you expect to get the wireless AC is also disappointing it’s quite slow they’ve got a reasonably slow drive for the nvme s SSD there so the academy’s on the SSD the wireless card a battery capacity 48 watt hours is not huge now gaming laptops don’t normally have good battery life so I can’t really complain too much about that compared to the competition but you only get about five hours maximum it is still disappointing now gaming performance let’s go over the cons sorry the pros the pros here gaming performance okay it is actually decent you get a lot of fan noise but when you put a nervous mode the performance is good once you apply the bias updates that fix the GPU stuttering so well after a bad start when I first got this but luckily doing those updates has improved things there but thermal ways the fan noise it’s really annoying it does get hot around the keyboard but I do like that keyboard the keyboard is very nice to type on and I will go fires to say they’re better than the SteelSeries keyboards on the MSI laptops that i have reviewed in this channel that it’s just very nice to type on good travel you even get them numerical keypad or others don’t they mess and skip there but normal gaming laptops we do have it so a little crush then good touchpad as well is good overall the build quality is good not an amazing screen but it is acceptable for a gaming laptop now most people won’t be doing professional editing color work and things like that on a screen like this especially not what the 48 Adobe rating there that’s not great a 48% coverage very poor but overall it’s just the thermals of a big major factor here so we’ve got some nice Hardware in here we’ve got the 8th generation i7 very good CPU but just in sufficient cooling basically just there one connected thermal transfer pipe with half an additional smaller pipe on it to aid the cooling of the CPU and that is just really not good enough and that is why I can now cannot just recommend this at all this laptop has frustrated me I have massive amounts of buyer’s remorse I will be selling this and I will be buying something with better calling so please do check out the competition check out msi HP Dell all of those guys they have I feel better 1050 Ti gaming laptops thank you so much for watching this review and I hope you avoided and this one here and I helped out

    I FUCKING hate my asus f550j i5-4200h and gtx950m.

  • Horia Raveica Post author

    This laptop has absolutely no cooling issues, no matter what you throw at it, the GPU temperatures will stay between 68-70 degrees Celsius, this is 20 degrees below the GPU's thermal threshold, and this is with the fans on Auto. The GPU does not throttle down even after 2 hours of continuous benchmark, the boost is maintained at 1911Mhz.

    Yes, the fans will be pretty loud – just turn up the game volume and the fan noise will not bother you, after all, this is an entry level gaming laptop, and at this price point it's pretty good.

    Guys i'll buy GTX 1050, 8 gigs ram of it. My main purpose to buy this machine is producing music but can i play league of legends and cs go smoothly on highest settings?

    I have the 1060 version of this, and it randomly deadlocks while playing games like Destiny 2. There are no correlation between the deadlocks and not a single solution has worked.

    Just bought the ASUS FX 504 and I left it charge for an hour and when I turned it on it kept shutting down. after 3 tries it was fine but I think that's to do with it being the first time turning on.

    its nice and wide for both my hands to rest on.
    THIS GUYS A LIER I HAVENT HEARD ANY FAN NOISE !!!!!

    PROCESSOR: I BOUGHT THIS COMPUTER TO STREAM MY PS4 GAMES WITH MY ELGATO SO I HAVENT PUSHED IT .

    TEMPERATURE: 60-70 IVE BEARLY NOTICED ANY HEAT

    BATTERY LIFE: I HAD ABOUT 8 HOURS FIRST TIME I USED IT

  • Russian 8D Post author

    asus tuf with ryzen only have overheating problems you should buy nvidia gtx 1050 ti + intel i5 and watch ssd because its important too i got with 480 gb ssd i mostly run games on 120 fps some on max graphics some on medium but there is no less fps than 60 havent seen yet

  • Russian 8D Post author

    all people who doesnt understand why you get lag first of all when you arent charging your laptop you are using intel so the games will be like 10 fps or 30 idk i havent tested but when you are charging your nvidia is running and you get 120 fps in most of the games at high graphics some on medium but i havent seen yet less than 60 fps on games

    Only here because I was shocked by the title. Completely disagree with your assessment that people shouldn't get these. I've had one of these devices for 2 months now, it's fantastic for playing games, crushes it at productivity, it's an absolute steal of a buy. What on earth did you think was better for the money when you did this review? The nitro with much worse thermals? honestly…

    Idk what to do i have the MSI GF63 8RC and idk if i whant to switch it for this one. Both have i78750H, GTX 1050, 256ssd and 16GB memory. The asus has 2 fans that are anti dust, a full keyboard. The msi only 1 fan but goes to 2 sides. The keyboard is more in the center. And has lan kabel and aux on the right… Idk what laptop is more worth to have. My gpu with msi is 93 in and stays that, cpu 65. What you guys think?

    What a review.. A gamer will always use headphones. Don't worry about the fan noise. I never got annoyed 😂. The temperature at the right hand side of the key board is high, but left side is cool. A gamer knows which hand side of the keyboard is mostly used. Display is too bright sometimes, but there are so many third party softwares to adjust it. Many games run more than 60 fps. On holidays it can be played for long hours. What else do we need. It's a loving laptop.

    everybody don't buy the FX504 buy the G703GX it is powerful and has better cooling and is faster and has a good processor or buy the zephyrus s gx701 because it is also powerful so i reccomend the g703gx or the zephyrus s gx701 because they have zero issues the battery life on the g703gx is not great but that does not matter to me the zephyrus s gx701 has better battery life only if you enable nvidia optimus if you do that you get 5 to almost 6 hours of battery life so those are the laptops you should get

    BS Video Title – Its $666 now. So sorry. Its easily worth that price by a lot. I totally understand that this laptop may have been way more expensive at the time this video came out. But in September 2019 this thing sells for $666 and its stupid good for that price. If you want a real gaming laptop you had better accept the fact that you have to drop at minimum $1500.
    Anyone that works with gaming laptops knows the fans are going to be stupid loud. If they are not loud then your laptop will be under clocking itself. Razer is notorious for that sort of thing.

    This wins the 2018 prize for STUPIDEST BLOODY YOUTUBE VIDEO TITLE 2018.

    I bought a refurbed one a while ago. I'd looked at countless reviews of this, and other makes and types before buying, and taken advice from loads of users. Then I saw this… And at first I was gutted. I thought I'd been conned. So… I got in touch with the retailer. They said there'd be absolutely no problem if I wanted a full refund. Relieved, I started checking out some other makes, to see what I could get for similar money. Well for a start, I couldn't get anything approaching the spec I have with the Asus. So, I upped the price bracket, and checked out various reviews of competitors…. and found pretty much the same thing: always some niggle or 'fault' or other: none were perfect. So then I went down to a competing retailer and explained my position, thinking he'd sawy me one way or the other. He was dead straight. This is what he said: "Look – I could tell you the Asus is a load of crap. I could flog you an HP, or an MSI for instance, that would supposedly offer more features or run cooler/longer/faster, whatever. Chances are, within a week, you'd be back, wanting a refund and wishing you'd kept the Asus. We get it all the time – mainly with gaming laptops and frankly, I wish these bloody 'expert' reviewers would get a proper job and keep their mouths shut…" I noticed they had quite a few "refurbed" laptops, too. I asked him why, although I was pretty sure of the answer I was going to get. "That's why we get so many coming back: we're duty bound to accept them, otherwise our reputation would be shot to hell. But the box has been opened, so strictly speaking, they're second hand, so we re-format the drive, install the OS, make sure it's in as new condition, then sell them at a discount, as refurbed…" Now obviously, they still have to make a profit – and since they've effectively had to take a £200 or so loss, they still have to make a profit on the "refurbed" one.

    So – because of reviews like this – we're ALL paying more than we should, for laptops – particularly gaming laptops. And no one, with the amount of money they're spending on any particular laptop in this price range, is going to be 100% happy.

    The only thing I can agree with about this review is regarding fps, when using the fan on turbo – IF it's running on the battery alone. It drops to about half. Other than that – it runs cooler, when playing a simulator (very demanding, graphically,) that I use often, than my solid Fujitsu Siemens laptop does when I'm word processing. Bottom line is – Take reviews like this with a pinch of salt, OK?

    Should I buy it for 3D simulations and renders? (Lumion, V-Ray, Corona…) please any advice from people who already tried

  • Joshplays808 Post author

    Should I get this gaming laptop?? I’m thinking of getting it for Christmas, but I don’t wanna choose the wrong laptop so yeah, I need suggestions for laptops, under $1000

  • EJ Diaz Post author

    I agree. I bought this laptop and found out that it keeps on lagging. It's not a good buy unfortunately.

    I've got the one with a i7-8750H, 16GB RAM, 1060 GTX 6GB, 120Hz screen 1920×1080, 256GB SSD + 1TB HDD (I will put an SSD later), Gigabit Wi-Fi, It runs FH4 on ultra and works very well with virtual machines, the only thing I don't like is the HDD which makes some noise but it is fine, I've bought it for 990€ it was at discount from 1.998€. Yes it heats but it's what you get, its a laptop not a normal desktop gaming pc with 10 fans and liquid refrigeration. Idon't belive this video at all, it only complais on the noise of the fans so that doesn't mean that you shouldn't buy this laptop at all, I have friends with MSI laptops which are louder than mine even tho we have the same specks. I recomend this laptop.

    Could you stop thermal throttling by using max fan settings a cooling pad and some thermal paste?

  • Hugh G. Rection Post author

    I feel like you really stretched the cons on this most of them are little things that you can fix. The only bad thing for me is the thermal throttling which can be countered

  • Reynald Guibone Post author

    I bought this laptop just today. Then watch your video with a title “don’t buy this laptop “. I felt disappointed with my buy. But luckily I jumped to the comment section and many commented that your review is not valid. Thanks to the commenters.

  • Adaren21 Post author

    I have this laptop and it preforms way better then what you showed here. So i think it's pretty damn good.

  • Dan MacPherson Post author

    It’s also important to know that there is a common noisy fan issue. Honestly, not worth the money

  • Santoslolzy Post author

    This laptop fucking sucks

  • Jack M Post author

    Can i play pubg on this

  • Sage Argento Post author

    I bought this laptop and was able to play 4k games and many others on the highest graphics and the fans worked perfectly and the laptop never heated once! Your review is your opinion, its a great gaming and study laptop! What do you want for a laptop at its price.

  • Inferno XI Post author

    If I shouldn't buy this laptop, what other gaming laptops do you recommend me buying?

  • Cracked_Playzz Post author

    Why is he saying do not buy this gaming laptop even though there’s no problems

  • Biswaroop Bhattacharjee Post author

    I have been using this laptop for more than 6 months. 14+ hrs everyday. Still it runs just as great as it did when i just bought it. The review is bullshit

  • NB Post author

    I have an fx503 with an i7 7700hq and a gtx 1060 it handles all the games well. 🙂

  • Enzo Dave Post author

    Nah no Issues at all

  • The Failanx Post author

    I've had this laptop for a bit now, and tbh, it WAS an improvement to what I used to have (really cheap netbooks), but I've run into the same problem with the wireless card. Which in fact, was what sparked my search that ended up at this video.

    Will you look at that, while I was watching this video, my fans screamed in protest.
