The all-new TUF Dash F15 is lighter and thinner than standard TUF Gaming laptops, at only 19.9 mm thin and 2kg (4.4 lb), while still meeting MIL-STD-810H military standards. It has been rigorously tested to survive extreme environments, ambient vibration, as well as accidental knocks and bumps.
The TUF Dash F15 is designed with a streamlined new look and feel. It comes in two colourways – Moonlight White and Eclipse Gray, and they are accentuated by bolt blue backlighting on the keyboard. The refreshed TUF logo boasts a modern look that evokes the strength of the series, while the thin lettering across the lid underscores the slim new design direction.
Fastest 11th Gen Intel Core laptop
Powered with up to the latest 11th Gen Intel® Core™ i7-11375H processor, the CPU clocks up to 5 GHz, nearly matching the frequency of the fastest desktop processors, but in a much smaller power envelope – up to 35W of sustained power when the GPU is active and 64W when the CPU is on its own. It also features four lanes of CPU-attached PCI Gen 4 for high bandwidth to connect the latest discrete graphics.
The TUF Dash F15 can pack up to 32 GB of DDR4-3200 memory, and it is paired with a PCI Express SSD of up to 1TB for faster storage. There’s also an additional SSD slot for more room for storing data and multimedia files.
Upgradability wise, the TUF Dash F15 features an easy-upgrade design that puts the SO-DIMM slot and both M.2 slots just behind the bottom panel, held in place with standard Philips screws.
When it comes to graphics, the graphics power is assured with up to a GeForce RTX™ 3070 GPU clocked up to 1390 MHz at 80W with ROG Boost. Built on NVIDIA’s latest Ampere architecture, this all-new GPU blends traditional CUDA processing cores with 2nd generation RT and 3rd generation Tensor cores to accelerate ray tracing and artificial intelligence.
The TUF Dash F15 is also equipped with up to a 240 Hz refresh rate that offers gamers a 3ms response time that reduces motion blur. This top IPS-level panel option covers 100% of the sRGB spectrum, which is the most widely used digital color space.
Other configurations of the TUF Dash F15 feature a 144 Hz display that still offers competitive gaming speed, more than doubling the refresh rate of conventional laptop displays. Its panel maintains colors and contrast across wide viewing angles, so you can sit off to the side while playing games or streaming videos with friends.
Adaptive-Sync support across all display options enables ultra-smooth gameplay by synchronizing the refresh rate with the GPU’s frame rate, reducing lag, minimizing stuttering, and eliminating visual tearing. The display is framed by 6.2 mm super-narrow bezels that minimize distractions from the action. The slim border shrinks the footprint of the chassis, too, making the laptop more compact.
The TUF Dash F15 is capable of up to 16.6 hours of continuous video playback time, and when a full recharge is needed, new fast-charging technology takes the battery from 0% to 50% in under 30 minutes. Battery life can be extended even further with Type-C charging support that can top off a charge from compatible adapters and power packs.
Type-C adapters up to 100W are supported, and the Type-C port works with Thunderbolt 4 and USB4, so it connects to the latest generation of premium devices. Thunderbolt 4 lets users plug in a docking station to drive a desktop setup or hook up an external GPU to boost gaming performance and overall graphics power on demand.
The TUF Dash F15 is also equipped with a wide variety of additional ports keep users flexible for any situation. It has three USB 3.2 Type-A ports, a HDMI 2.0b port, a Type-C port which also doubles as a DisplayPort 1.4 output, making it simple to connect a secondary display. Connectivity wise, the TUF Dash F15 has WiFi 6 (802.11ax), Gigabit Ethernet, as well as Bluetooth 5.1.
Advanced cooling enables the TUF Dash F15 to fit top tier processors in a super slim form factor. A substantial heat spreader and five copper heat pipes distribute thermal energy from the CPU, GPU, VRAM, and VRM into four heatsinks, each lined with thin fins that maximize surface area for heat dissipation and minimize resistance to airflow.
Dual fans channel air through four outlets that expel heat faster and with less noise than typical ultraslim designs. The n-Blade fans are specially sculpted to move more air. They’re made from a special liquid crystal polymer that makes enough space to fit 83 blades per fan and still ensure that each blade is strong enough to hold up at high RPMs. Such a high blade density means each fan can draw and push more air per rotation, cooling components faster. With 0dB Technology, the fans switch off completely when CPU and GPU temperatures drop below 50°C in the Silent operating mode. This makes cooling truly silent under light workloads.
The TUF Dash F15 is topped off with a range of premium features that enhance its everyday user experience for gaming, entertainment, and more.
Voice chat is crystal clear thanks to new Two-Way AI Noise Cancelation technology. This advanced technology removes a broad range of unwanted background noise from both input and output audio, meaning that both the user’s voice and incoming communications are fuzz-free. It supports any input device, and noise cancelation settings can be applied and adjusted for specific apps, so unwanted sounds can be filtered out of voice chat software without adversely affecting game audio or music apps. Best of all, this technology runs on the CPU, allowing the GPU to focus all its resources on maximizing gaming performance.
A new, quiet keyboard design keeps inputs under 30dB. Commands can be input freely and discreetly no matter where users want to play. Its desktop-style design is optimized for gaming, with four dedicated hotkeys allow for quick access to essential features like volume, mic mute, and Armoury Crate. Function keys are separated in the usual groups to make shortcuts more intuitive, while arrow keys are offset for effortless navigation. The stealthy keyboard switches have a 1.7mm travel distance that makes typing more comfortable.
Entertainment experiences are more immersive with DTS:X Ultra technology that brings 7.1-channel virtual surround sound to stereo headsets or speakers. Users can choose between built-in presets for games, movies, and sports or try customizing their tuning with the embedded equalizer.
