The fps hit is so significant it is not worth it et all.1660Ti would be just fine. And at this price point if you are getting a 4800H with bloody anything, take ot coz its a monster


DLSS 2.0 would disagree with you.

Not a big difference between 1660 Ti and 2060 mobile.. maybe 5% on average in most cases which can easily be offset by poorly designed cooling on a laptop. (or a hot Intel CPU)

Have no idea why they're pairing such a high spec machine...... With a 1660ti. Not voting either way, but for £1000 really would like to see a better machine. Love the CPU, excellent screen, enough RAM, SSD. I guess all machines have a bottleneck, shame its the Grphx in this one. I'd personally advise waiting a little, for a far superior machine at 2060 or higher.

Nice PLEX cpu
Great to see some Ryzen 4000 series APUs make it into a mainstream laptop. Scorchio!

Not too bad considering gaming laptop prices today.

Worryingly doesn't mention IPS anywhere, and asus have form for shoving really **** TN panels in their gaming laptops. I had one, was like something from the mid 90's
There are quite a few reviews out of the version with a 2060 and they all say it’s a 144Hz IPS panel in that. Would be surprising if there was also a 144Hz TN panel??
This is bang in line with other 1660ti laptops at the right price point for them at sub-£1000, but with the terrific new 4800H processor. The number of games where the extra horsepower will come into play before a GPU bottleneck occurs is fairly minimal, but I'm definitely not complaining.
Nice rounded spec. Heat!

40795893-yCxua.jpgFrom here
Asus offers two screen variants for the TUF FA506 lineup, either 60 Hz IPS-like FHD or 144 HZ IPS-like FHD. We have the former on this test unit, the 60 Hz option that will make its way into some of the base-level configurations in the series.

However, if you’re interested in the 144 Hz panel option, you can read all about it in our review of the TUF A15 FA506 configuration.

I read (somewhere) "IPS-Level" is ASUS-speak for a VA panel. Others say TN. Looks as though this one actually has an IPS panel, if the link above is correct.

My thoughts too - the new HP Omen is said to have the Ryzen processor with a 2060 card for £1,100

2060 Vs 1660 ti main difference is the Ray tracing

You cant play games with ray tracing with a basic laptop 2060. The fps hit is so significant it is not worth it et all.

1660Ti would be just fine. And at this price point if you are getting a 4800H with bloody anything, take ot coz its a monster
I’ve read so much about this recently (thinking of getting a gaming laptop) and there really is no difference to speak of between GTX1660Ti and RTX2060.

Yes the latter has ray tracing but then once games come along where that is a major “thing”, well you’ve just got the absolute bottom-end spec card that is capable of it.

Truly do people think that in the next 3 years, say, ray tracing is going to take over AND the 2060 will be able to deliver stunning performance doing it?

I am keen to hear views!

Yep. 1660ti is 2060 minus the ray tracing. I have it on my HP omen running alongside the 9750h and games run great on its 144hz 1080p screen. If you don't mind not having ray tracing then 1660ti is good enough

2060 is geforce first raytracing card. The 3060> cards should handle raytracing much better as they'll have more improvement. I have 1660ti on laptop and 1080 on desktop. I may skip to 4080 as will be going for ps5 when thats out.. that will give me enough raytracing to get by

I can imagine the support will significantly increase with the release of the next consoles.
Playing through Control with RTX on medium was a game changer for me. This was on my 2060 mobile with DLSS at 720p. It never dropped below 60fps and looked just like it was running at 1080p.

If I was to buy a laptop now i`d 100% want an RTX card. Although it might be wiser to wait for the 3000 series cards now.

True and even a mobile 2060 isn't really gonna handle RTX so kind of a pointless "upgrade" when people compare them.
Awesome deal cheers op

I wonder when they 3000 rtx cards will be out for desktop

And when the laptops will come out with it

Probably forever
2060 is dog sh for rtx. There are virtually no games with rtx and it runs on a 2060 like a turd.
Control is one of the worst games that failed to sell well.
Next gen rtx end of this year will wipe it shoes with current gen rtx cards. Even then rtx has very limited use, even the new Unreal engine 5 demo had none of it.
How is this for someone who is an architect working with lot of graphics processing and modelling?

Why does it say the cpu is quad core??
I know its octa 😵
This or a 17" HP gaming laptop?

Is this worth the extra £50 for this laptop?

HP Pavilion 17-CD0033NA 17.3" Gaming Laptop for £949

I can bump the RAM up to 16gb for a similar price to this asus..
HP = More storage and better screen (in terms of size and colour range) but only 60hz
ASUS = 144HZ and 4800h but lacks the 1tb drive
Intel is better for single core but AMD kills it on multi core.

Intel Core i7 (9th Gen) 9750H
8GB RAM, 1TB+512GB SSHD
17.3" Full HD IPS Display (1920 x 1080) Resolution
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 Ti 6GB GDDR6 Dedicated Graphics
Windows 10 Home 64-bit
Edited by: "lanky78" 19th May
This for faster ram and 144hz alone
Not to mension far better processor just wondering why currys are advertising quad core wtf?
Just spoke to ASUS uk and they confirmed its an error on currys part THERES ONLY ONE R7 4800H and its 8 CORE 🤪

Check the actual guys who have compared this model to the "better" helios display and they cannot tell the difference in real world gaming
Needed this at the beginning of my lockdown not the end lol
There are a few comments online saying that their WiFi cards are failing in this model. Anyone know if this model has been recalled since it's been removed from some vendors? It's a cracking price so want to make sure it is simply a bad batch rather than the whole range before diving in.
