More and more laptops with 11th Gen Core H-series are starting to appear on retailers’ websites. Just 2 days ago we reported on the ASUS ROG Zephyrus M16 laptop which is a premium design featuring up to Core i9-11900H CPU and GeForce RTX 3070. The ROG model will be a 16-inch design with a display featuring a 16:10 aspect ratio. It will therefore offer a lot more screen estate compared to 17-inch laptops such as this TUF Gaming F17.
The TUF F17 FX706 carries the same product code as the currently existing model featuring Intel 10th Gen Core CPUs. What this means is that it’s likely there are no physical changes to the product, but rather to its internals. The official description does not mention anything about the screen, which is not a good thing. The TUF F17 laptops feature very low-quality panels with sRGB 62.50% coverage. Needless to say, these laptops are not meant for content creators or users planning to watch HDR content.
The FX706HM-HX062T that is currently listed by Amazon Italy features Core i7-11800H CPU and GeForce RTX 3060 graphics. It is already available for preorder at 1,799 EUR with an estimated shipping date between May 10th to June 8th. Intel has not yet officially launched its Tiger Lake-H45 series, so it is unclear if those shipping estimates are accurate.
