TUF FX504 Specifications
The FX504 has a 15.6-inch LCD display with full HD display that supports a refresh rate of 120Hz. Users can spec it up to an 8th generation Core i7 processor and an NVIDIA GTX 1050Ti GPU with 4GB of DDR5 video memory. The FX504 is equipped with 8GB of DDR4 RAM as standard and a 1TB Firecuda Hybrid SSD + 128GB NVME PCI-E Gen3x4 SSD for storage. As for connectivity options, the FX504 featured all of the essential ports required by gamers — USB-A ports, Ethernet, HDMI and many others. In our brief time with it, the TUF FX504 felt reasonably fast. We tried our hands at certain e-sports favourite titles such as DOTA 2 and PUBG. The laptop was comfortably hosting those games with high graphics settings, delivering healthy frame rates of above 60fps most of the times. We felt that the display has narrow viewing angles. We couldn’t put the laptop through its paces with some more resource-intensive titles. However, we will try that in our full review of the FX504.
