It has been a busy CES 2022 for laptop and notebook manufacturers, with many new Intel and AMD mobile processors being announced and NVIDIA's latest GeForce RTX 30 series mobile graphics cards. ASUS has updated a number of its ranges for 2022, including its TUF Gaming series. One of these is the TUF Dash 15, with a 15.6-inch screen available with either a 2560 x 1440p 165 Hz or 1920 x 1080p 300 Hz panel, the latest Intel Alder Lake mobile processor, NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 30 series graphics, and Thunderbolt 4 connectivity.

Refreshed for 2022, the ASUS TUF Dash F15 has been upgraded with new features. Users have the choice between two different designs, off black or in moonlight white. ASUS claims that the touchpad is 27% bigger than the 2021 version while boasting a new and improved cooling system. The TUF Dash F15 uses ASUS's new 84-blade Arc Flow fans that ASUS claims improve airflow by up to 13%.

The ASUS TUF Dash F15 features a 15.6-inch display and can be had with either a 165 Hz 2560 x 1440p or fast 300 Hz 1920 x 1080p screen, with both including support for Adaptive Sync and featuring a 3 ms response time. Powering the display is an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 laptop graphics card while computing power is handled by an Intel Core i7-12650H Alder Lake mobile processor.

There's also support for up to 16 GB of DDR5-4800 memory, up to and including two PCIe 4.0 x4 M.2 NVMe storage drives, and it comes with a 76 Wh battery with support for Type-C charging. ASUS also includes a Thunderbolt 4 Type-C port, but ASUS hasn't unveiled a complete list of specifications or configurations at the time of writing.

ASUS hasn't informed us when the TUF Dash F15 (2022) will be available or how much it will retail for.

    Just gonna put this out there... preeeeeety sure 'TUF' is in no way 'tough'. From what I've heard from retail store techs, their 'TUF' brand is prone to early failure compared to their other lines of motherboards. Reply

    Asus I think have relegated "TUF" to more budget orientated price points for gamers.

    It's no longer synonymous with quality/durability at any cost using "Military Grade Components".. I had the Asus Sabertooth x79 Tuf board which has lasted for over a decade and not skipped a beat and is still going strong...

    Now I wouldn't touch it as I feel it's original premise has been butchered.

    Yes, I also understand that "TUF" is short for "Tough luck, out of warranty" these days. A bit sad, because I am looking for a robust, well-made laptop that will last 4-5 years. My ASUS laptop developed some very annoying trackpad and keyboard issues, which turned me off their products. Reply

    Anecdotal evidence aside, their Tuf line is really just their mainstream line. Not built with the highest end components, but that doesn't mean they're inherently more likely to fail earlier. It just means you shouldn't expect to do extreme overclocking on a Tuf motherboard, or expect the Tuf lineup of monitors to have the same contrast and motion handling of the Strix line. I imagine very few people are actually buying Tuf branded products at this point and thinking it means they're more rugged. Reply
