A 100% sRGB color gamut and wide-view angles ensure vivid and consistent colors, even when you're viewing it from extreme positions.

Tougher than Standard

Infused with the spirit of The Ultimate Force (TUF), FX705 passes a series of rigorous MIL-STD-810G tests, successfully surviving varying conditions including solar radiation exposure, high altitude, and temperature extremes. It's certified to endure day-to-day use, from accidental knocks to sudden drops on a desk. Durable and stable, FX705 has been pushed to the limit to ensure only the very best for gamers.

* These tests are held in strict environmental conditions and under the supervision of quality test engineers. Product testing without proper controls or guidance may damage the product, and in some instances, create situations where there is significant risk of injury, disability, or death.

Extreme Robust

Physical shock tests ensure every TUF Gaming laptop resists damage from unexpected drops, knocks, and bumps during shipment and daily use. The reinforced chassis can withstand a force that's double the normal ASUS standard quality test.

Withstands Environmental Extremes

ASUS engineers amped up environmental testing, subjecting each TUF Gaming laptop to extreme temperatures and humidity cycles, as well as high altitude testing to replicate inflight use or transport via air freight. Solar radiation testing ensures the laptop won't degrade even after prolonged to direct sunlight.


Solidly Built

FX705 has two stand-out designs that both exude toughness and power. Its aluminum Gunmetal Grey or black plastic cover features the distinctive Radiating-X design with a complementary sand-blasted or brushed finish. The hexagonal design on the underside of the laptop provides additional structural rigidity, completing the laptop's modern and aggressive lines.

Desktop-inspired Backlit Keyboard

FX705 has a keyboard that's optimized for gaming, featuring red color backlighting across all zones that can be controlled via the TUF Aura Core panel so you can express your own unique style.

Hypercool Technology Improves Durability

ASUS-exclusive HyperCool technology comprises of the Anti-Dust Cooling (ADC) system and Fan Overboost technology to ensure exceptional cooling during intense gaming. Furthermore, cooling is also improved by the patented trapezoid-cut lid and intelligent parallel fan placement.

* Specifications and features vary by models.

Anti-dust Tunnels

The ADC system has an exclusive internal design that forces dust particles and dirt to exit the chassis through two anti-dust tunnels located at the edges of the fans. This prevents the thermal fins from becoming caked in grime, preserving performance in the long run to improve both system longevity and reliability.

Fan Overboost

The system can automatically adjust fan speeds according to CPU and GPU temperatures, but you also have the option to switch between Fan Overboost, Balanced, and Silent modes to suit the situation at hand. Fan Overboost is the most aggressive setting, providing the fastest fan speeds to fully exploit the power of FX705. Silent mode curbs fan noise, so it's perfect when you're surfing the net, getting work done, or watching a movie.

Optimized Airflow

Every part of FX705 serves to improve system stability and efficiency. The dual fans are symmetrically placed to maximize airflow through the system. They pump warm air out the back, where the patented trapezoid-cut lid avoids interference with the exhaust vents, increasing thermal efficiency by up to 25% over traditional designs.


Immersive DTS Surround Sound

DTS Headphone: X™ technology delivers immersive, high-fidelity 7.1-channel virtual surround sound for theater-quality audio, even when you're using a headset. It features optimized settings for games, sports, and movies, and has a built-in equalizer for additional fine-tuning.


Faster Speeds, Wider Coverage

FX705 features one of the fastest Wi-Fi standards available - the latest Intel 802.11ac Wave 2 boasts data transfer rates of up to an incredible 1.7Gbps - 12X faster than baseline 802.11b/g/n! Additionally, the 2x2 MIMO configuration provides up to 30% wider coverage than a 1x1 setup. Stream your favorite movies in high-resolution or play online with fewer connection drops, even if FX705 is farther away from your router.


Load Games Faster

The 1TB 5400rpm FireCuda SSHD loads games more than 2X faster than 5400rpm HDDs found in rival laptops. FireCuda's flash memory acts like a cache, saving frequently used data without accessing the hard drive to lower power consumption and improve performance.

* Unless otherwise stated, data read and write speeds are based on theoretical performance. Actual performance may vary in real-world situations.


High-performance Memory

Get ready for some serious multitasking - FX705 pairs its hexa-core processor with up to 32GB of dual-channel DDR4 2666MHz memory for improved performance and energy efficiency.

I/O Ports

I/O Ports within Easy Reach

FX705 features a host of I/O ports including a single USB 2.0 and two USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-A ports for your gaming peripherals, as well as HDMI 2.0 to connect to an external display. All ports are situated on the left side of the laptop so there's nothing to interfere with right-handed mousing.
