ASUS Philippines has recently launched its newest gaming laptop under the TUF Gaming series, powered by AMD’s Ryzen processor, and designed to deliver stellar performance and reliability, at a very competitive price.
The trapezoid-cut design on its lid combined with a powerful dual fan design and an anti-dust cooling system all contribute to a longer lifespan for the device.
