Asus For gamers who dare to be different, Asus has added AMD-based versions of its more traditional Intel/Nvidia-based FX505 and FX705 budget gaming laptops here at CES.  In theory, the AMD models should be even more budget-friendly than their linemates, but that’s not always the case. They’re slated to ship by the end of March, but Asus hasn’t provided any pricing.

Both laptops support FreeSync (AMD’s variable-refresh technology for preventing tearing artifacts), but the 17-inch FX705DY’s screen has more limited 60Hz-max latitude than the 15-inch’s 48-120Hz refresh range.   Unlike the FX504 we reviewed in July, the displays in these models have IPS screens — not as fast as the TN panel we complained about, but they should look much better. The TUF line distinguishes itself from other budget gaming laptops with boasts of, well, toughness. They’re built to MIL-STD-810G spec to withstand minor drops and the fan system is designed to dispatch dust and particles out the vents.
