At the tail end of February, Asus and AMD made available several SKUs for its notebook lineup that are truly oriented towards gaming. Asus had first announced the TUF Gaming FX505DY along with two other powerful contenders in the refreshed X570ZD and the Ryzen powered Vivobook 15 X505ZA.
This particular TUF Gaming unit, the FX505DY, is dubbed “Red Matter” and for good reason.
At the perimeter of the lid is a unique yet familiar red accent that matches very well with the red electroplated insignia at the center of the cover.
The theme flows into the keyboard that illuminates in a striking red hue to allow for operation in the dark.
For only Php 39,995 you’d get 15.6″ of 120Hz screen powered by the Ryzen 5 R5-3550H coupled with the Radeon RX 560X graphics chip supplemented by 4GBs of memory and a full 1TB of storage.
This unit launches in parallel to the Php 37,995 gaming notebook X570ZD using the Ryzen R5-2500U and a GTX 1050
as well as the Vivobook 15 X505ZA that comes in a couple of flavors of Ryzen and starts at only Php 26,995. More details, specs, and purchasing locations after the jump.
