Asus TUF Gaming FX504 Full Review
Asus TUF Gaming FX504 comes with 8th Gen Intel Core i7 processor and Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 illustrations can play diversions on low or medium settings, and the sound is better than average. Yet, the workstation’s strong state half and half drive (SSHD) stockpiling is moderate, and its 1080p display doesn’t flaunt recreations and other media well since it’s diminish and insipid. You get what you pay for, so there are penances you’ll need to make with this reasonable machine.
The TUF Gaming FX504 ain’t precisely beautiful. It’s a dark hunk of plastic with artificial aluminum becoming flushed and red paint in a rakish, lined example that proposes Asus truly needs you to think about “the digital” when you take a gander at it. Asus’ own particular logo is in intelligent red in the focal point of the cover. The cover has a little pattern, so you can see the status lights notwithstanding when the workstation is shut, which is a perfect component it takes from the premium Zephyrus line.
Lifting the top uncovers that within is essentially the same. The 15.6-inch display is encompassed by a stout bezel, and the deck is a similar plastic with terrible red lines. The keyboard is illuminated, likewise in red.
At 2.3 kg and 15.1 x 10.3 x 1 inches, the FX504 is thicker than contenders yet amidst the pack on weight. The Acer Nitro 5 Spin is a lighter 2.2 kg and 15 x 10.2 x 0.7 inches, and the HP Pavilion Power 15t is a heavier 2.5 kg and 14.9 x 9.9 x 1 inches.
The left half of the PC houses the power jack, Ethernet jack, HDMI yield, USB 2.0 port, a couple of USB 3.0 ports and an earphone jack, while the correct side has just a Kensington bolt opening.
Asus unquestionably cut corners with the 15.6-inch, 1080p display on the FX504. It’s diminish, tasteless and inert. I viewed a 1080p trailer for Ant-Man and the Wasp and was exhausted by the dull hues, similar to the yellow accents scarcely flying off of the Wasp’s blue suit or the corrupt looking red of Ant-Man’s outfit.
On the brilliant side, the screen was sharp, and I could make out each shard of a smashed glass window. When I played Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, there was lost detail in dim zones, and Talion’s red outfit was quieted.

The FX504 covers only 66 percent of the sRGB shading extent, which is well beneath the 98-percent section level gaming normal, and in addition the showings from the Acer Nitro 5 Spin (105 percent) and the HP Pavilion Power 15t (68 percent).
Keyboard and Touchpad
The keys on the TUF Gaming FX504 offer 1.4 millimeters of movement and require a solid 76 grams of power to activate. While that is simply off of our typical inclination of 1.5 millimeters, I never felt as though I was bottoming out. My greater issue was that the keys felt somewhat bouncy, which took some becoming accustomed to. On the 10fastfingers.com composing test, I achieved 114 words for each moment, which is standard for me, yet I had a 3-percent mistake rate, which is somewhat higher than typical for me.
The keyboard has a number cushion and is illuminated, yet just in red. At this value, you can’t blame the FX504 for not having a full RGB keyboard.
The 4.1 x 2.8-inch touchpad has a Windows Precision touchpad that reacted to motions like four-finger taps to conjure the Action Center and four-finger swipes to achieve the Timeline. In any case, when I explored Windows, the plastic felt dangerous and modest.
The speakers on the TUF Gaming FX504 are decent and noisy, effortlessly topping off a moderate size meeting room (and drawing in consideration from a few people outside it). The hints of Bruno Mars’ “Explosive” brought the volume, and the speakers were extraordinary at featuring the vocals and piano.

In any case, the melody’s mark drums and bass were lost a bit in the blend, even with Bass Boost on in the included DTS sound application. A few people may welcome the Volume Leveling choice, which made the blend more steady, yet I believe it’s best to simply leave the Bass Boost on and never contact the application again.
Gaming and Graphics

That won’t tear through escalated recreations, yet it’s sufficient to get you by on most titles at low or medium settings.

On low settings, it kept running at 54 to 65 fps, however with a considerable measure of the geology flying in as I moved toward it.

Considering that the FX504 packs an Intel Core i7 CPU, 8GB of RAM and a 1TB SSHD, I trusted it would be somewhat quicker. With 20 tabs open in Google Chrome, including PUBG game play it performed well. I additionally saw that the PC had an especially long boot time.
