ASUS TUF Dash F15
We have the first photos of the upcoming TUF Dash laptop from ASUS. This model codenamed TUF Dash F15 (FX516P) is a mid-tier gaming laptop equipped with Intel Core i7 and Core i5 CPUs based on the latest Tiger Lake architecture from Intel.
ASUS Dash F15 is a new series of TUF laptops, which appear to be exclusive to upcoming Intel Tiger Lake-H35 CPUs. As mentioned before, these CPUs are basically Tiger Lake-U SKUs with higher wattage. What this means is that the CPUs are locked to a maximum of four cores and eight threads but they offer higher clocks.
We can confirm that TUF Dash F15 will be available with three CPUs: Core i5-11300H, i7-11370H (3.3 /4.8 GHz) and i7-11375H (3.3 / 5.0 GHz). In terms of graphics, this laptop will be offered with either GeForce RTX 3060 6GB of RTX 3070 8GB, depending on the variant. Both Intel and NVIDIA are expected to introduce these CPUs and GPUs next week.

ASUS TUF Dash F15 will offer a 15.6-inch display in three variants: FHD 144Hz, FHD 240Hz, and QHD 165Hz. The 144Hz panel offers 62% sRGB color coverage, so this is likely the same panel that ASUS offers in the TUF A15 series. What is definitely interesting to see in a mid-tier laptop is a QHD high refresh rate panel. We are looking forward to seeing how RTX 30 series handle this resolution.
The laptop weighs exactly 2 kilograms and comes with a 76 Whr battery. We can also confirm that Dash F15 has either 8GB or 16GB memory already soldered to the motherboard (it depends on the variants). It supports up to 32GB DDR4-3200 memory. ASUS is yet to confirm the pricing and release date of this model.
