This ASUS TUF Dash 15″ gaming laptop was one of the best sellers on Amazon Prime Day. It’s normally priced at $1299.99, which is already a pretty fantastic deal for a recently released gaming laptop that has the latest CPU, GPU, and RAM. On Amazon Prime Day, the price dropped to $1099.99 and it sold like hotcakes. Today, though, the price has dropped even further to $1069.99, although we’re not sure how long this price will last.
Better Than Amazon Prime Day Deal: ASUS TUF Dash 15″ Intel Core i7 Alder Lake RTX 3060 Gaming Laptop
ASUS TUF Dash 15″ Intel Core i7-12650H RTX 3060 Gaming Laptop with 16GB RAM, 512GB SSD
The ASUS TUF Dash 15″ gaming laptop is a 2022 model. It’s equipped with the newest 12th generation Intel Core i7-12650H Alder Lake CPU, with 6 High Performance Cores and 4 Efficiency Cores. The upgrade in the CPU makes it significantly more powerful than the previous generation 2021 model with the 11th gen Intel Core i7 CPU. The other benefit of going with an Intel Alder Lake CPU is that this laptop also uses 16GB of new DDR5-4800MHz RAM. This combo is paired to a GeForce RTX 3060 mobile GPU with a max TGP rating of 105W. That should be plenty of power to drive any game on the 1080p display. Those are some pretty impressive specs for a gaming laptop that manages to maintain a slim profile and keep its weight down to only 4.3 pounds.
Some other features of the ASUS TUF Dash include a 15″ 1080p 144Hz IPS display, dedicated MUX chip that lets the GPU communicate directly with the display (bypassing the CPU and thus increasing performance and reducing latency), self-cleaning fans, a very rugged chassis that passes the military-grade MIL-STD-810 durability test, a Thunderbolt 4 port, and backlit keyboard. For those of you who aren’t satisfied with the base specs, this laptop allows you to swap out the RAM and storage without much hassle.
