In a few words
Even if there are not really bad choices in laptops anymore, it is important to know that some models are more intended for multimedia, and others more for games.Your computer will not be limited to technical specifications, so we have built a test plan according to the use you will make of it.From basic use (the Web, and e-mail) to online gaming with powerful machines.
The detail of our analysis in this article.
TUF766II-AU098T Noir/Gris – GTX to surf the Internet?
We can consider that for certain uses, such as surfing the web, it is not necessary to buy a high-powered model. An inexpensive computer such as TUF766II-AU098T Noir/Gris – GTX may seem to be the solution. Even if the material is not of a very high quality, with plastic materials (at the level of the hull), the components and the internal circuits of the machine are still designed by Asus; a manufacturer who has been offering laptops for several years already. In other words, don’t expect to keep it for more than 3 years.
With a 17 inches size, you’re going to have some trouble carrying it around. The computer is equipped with a relatively old processor, the Ryzen 5 4600H. A technical choice to reduce the final price of the laptop. For a few euros more, it is possible to switch to more powerful processors. In the end, you shouldn’t ask too much of this computer, otherwise you’ll get annoyed by its slowness when you launch several applications in parallel. The 8 Gb of RAM available on this TUF766II-AU098T Noir/Gris – GTX is correct, equivalent to other products in the same price range. If needed you can add more, thanks to the extra slots inside.
The 500 Gb make this laptop a mid-range laptop in terms of available space. Almost the same as its competitors and what is currently done on the market, you will have room to store. Asus comes with this TUF766II-AU098T Noir/Gris – GTX a laptop that you’ll keep for a few years before it becomes obsolete.
Finally, an important point for a laptop: autonomy; here you will have 5 hours of freedom before you have to plug it back into the socket. It is in the average range of what is done with today’s battery technology. It’s annoying, because the interest of a laptop is still to be able to use it everywhere, without it being plugged in.
The TUF766II-AU098T Noir/Gris – GTX- the right model for streaming and videos ?
Asus presents this laptop as a standard product dedicated to a low-resource usage. Due to its characteristics and internal components, this TUF766II-AU098T Noir/Gris – GTX is to be classified as entry-level: not exceptional, but on the other hand, not expensive. In other words, a computer dedicated to “classic” uses for most users, but not specifically audio and video oriented.
For this model, Asus thought big. Large by size, with 17 inches and a high resolution of 1920×1080. Because of its wide screen, it is perfectly designed for watching movies. Very good quality rendering, both in brightness and image detail.
The only disadvantage of this size, however, is the weight: here you have a laptop of 2.6 kg.
The glossy screen option is not possible on this model; it would have made the display easier to read. The effect is of lower quality in environments with intermediate or even low light levels – often corresponding to the conditions in which a film is viewed. The display legibility will therefore be a little off.
Therefore, when used in daylight conditions, you will appreciate the lack of this feature, as the light induces reflections, making it difficult to view.
On the sound side, it TUF766II-AU098T Noir/Gris – GTX has good components: board and integrated speakers. We tested it with movies and music at maximum volume. Even if the result is good, be aware that even the best laptops will never beat a hi-fi system on this point. If necessary, you can later supplement with external elements if you consider the results too insufficient.
Even if the use of this laptop does not require the latest generation of processor, be aware that it Ryzen 5 4600H is now outdated. The consequence will be that it will be less quiet and therefore will consume more electricity. It’s still acceptable in audio/video mode, you only need to launch one application at a time.
Due to the level of the graphics card, you have one NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 Ti, which with 8 Gb de Ram, will allow you to make multimedia (movie viewing, and some simple photo retouching). This will obviously be a bit light if you want to do 3D imaging, but will suit your needs.
Concerning the connections, this model has available 4 ports. Much better than most of the competition. Speakers, a mouse (wired), an external hard drive and an output to a pocket projector when on business trip or when you travel.
About the batteries, be aware that you will have some time before you have to reconnect the power. Asus promises 5 hours of battery life; that’s about average.
The TUF766II-AU098T Noir/Gris – GTX to use while travelling.
Easier to transport than a desktop computer, it is not intended for travelling. This seems to be the issue that the Asus didn’t really take into account in the design of this TUF766II-AU098T Noir/Gris – GTX. Difficult to store in a suitcase, not very suitable for transport, tests have shown that this laptop will be more in its element for very exceptional trips.
Reserve its use at home, between your living room and your bedroom.
This is one of the heaviest models compared to the competition: 2.6 Kg. It’s complicated when you have to transport it. Its size will make you regret the format of ultrabooks. The reason for that ? The size of the screen. With its 17 inches, the screen will however render a large image.
Unless perhaps you are used to working in dimly lit areas, you will not be bothered by the absence of a backlit keyboard. Not necessarily useful, except for those in dimly lit places.
Good image definition although the slab is not shiny. We appreciate the viewing on this screen.
This model offers a pleasant user comfort. The image is beautiful, and with its anti-reflective matt tile, no more problems even outdoors.
Here this laptop is not very powerful because of its processor Ryzen 5 4600H; it’s inferior to the competition, and it’s not very good in terms of energy consumption.
The result is a poorer autonomy. Furthermore, these figures reflect an estimate of Asus; the reality is closer to 70% of this value.
As for the autonomy , the batteries will allow you to use it for about 5 hours.
Because of its probable use for travel, this laptop was thought to be thin and light with a SSD hard drive of 1 500 Gb. The induced advantage here is the absence of latencies, especially in the recovery phase after a standby or due to prolonged inactivity.With SSD technology, however, you benefit from a considerable improvement in the time it takes your notebook to start up and get out of standby mode.For those who do not have enough space on the disk, it will be necessary to go through the option of a subscription on the cloud; the price decreases regularly.
When it comes to taking your laptop with you, it will seem safer to do so only occasionally. You will limit transport as much as possible because of its bulk. The reason for this is its size; with 17 inches, it is one of the largest laptops of the moment.
At the connector level, this model provides 4 inputs. That makes it one of the best equipped models on the market.
Bluetooth technology is great when you’re on the go, and you’ll enjoy the convenience of connecting easily to a phone or speakers.
Finally with the TUF766II-AU098T Noir/Gris – GTX, Asus deliver us a laptop at a tight price but not intended for travelliing, or as an exception.
TUF766II-AU098T Noir/Gris – GTX the right choice for audio or video editing ?
If you’re serious about editing and creating music, then you pay a lot of attention to processor speed and memory. It appears that this TUF766II-AU098T Noir/Gris – GTXmeets this need perfectly. With these components, Asus puts at your disposal a laptop whose computing speed has been improved since the last generation. This laptop will facilitate multitasking, and you will be able to simultaneously run applications such as Photoshop, Magix Video or Vegas pro with an operating Windows 10 system.
It’s going to be a little harder on this model than on some of the other competitors. It is possible to edit, but it is not the task that the processor Ryzen 5 4600H does best. You’ll soon discover that the processor lacks power and memory.
The designers of Asus have chosen a single disk, an SSD, for this laptop. However, for audiovisual use, we would have preferred a dual-disk system: a large-capacity hard disk for backup, and an SSD for speed of execution. The TUF766II-AU098T Noir/Gris – GTX allows a price reduction with this choice, with an available space of 500 Gb. It is nevertheless one of the good laptops in terms of storage, compared to its competitors.
In terms of autonomy,the Asuskept it simple. Indicated for an autonomy of 5 hours by the manufacturer, it is preferable to keep your charger close by if you need to make changes while on the move or if you use a lot of resources for your audio or video editing. A duration which is on the other hand equivalent to the other machines at the moment.
On the connection side, the TUF766II-AU098T Noir/Gris – GTXi s equipped with USB 3 technology. An interesting format for transfers when you want to move your large audio-video files. In addition, this technology offers a better rate of high-speed file transfer between your laptop and external drives.
With the TUF766II-AU098T Noir/Gris – GTX, you’re moving towards a very good product. Audio and video editing will be easier than ever. And at a price that is well ranked.
TUF766II-AU098T Noir/Gris – GTX the right choice to play online?
There are very few laptops today that do not allow you to play video games. And this TUF766II-AU098T Noir/Gris – GTX is one of the average laptops you can play with. But if you’re used to playing the latest games of the moment, you’ll soon reach the limits.
Simply put, the higher the screen resolution, the more accurate the details in a game. This model is proposed in resolution 1920×1080, that is to say one of the best on the market.
These generations of processor and graphics card are nowadays a little outdated, which makes this model below the others. After our analysis, it appears that use in game mode generates processor overheating and degradations in terms of images and colors. Finally, if you want to play often, we recommend a model with more power.
The huge advantage of choosing a gamer laptop is that they are able to do everything very quickly. This laptop obtains one of the best GPU rankings, allowing it to perform complex calculations.
A space of 500 Gb to save your data; this is in the average of what other brands offer. A feature that interested those, and there are still many, who want to install and play locally.
For online gaming, it TUF766II-AU098T Noir/Gris – GTX has high quality Wi-Fi. More speed for those living in full Wi-Fi areas.
One of the heaviest laptops of the moment, partly due to its 17 inches size.
Please note that with an autonomy of 5 hours, you will have enough time to play video games requiring few resources.
It TUF766II-AU098T Noir/Gris – GTX is finally an interesting compromise for those who want performance without spending too much on the purchase. Good for games, but also for many other uses.
TUF766II-AU098T Noir/Gris – GTX the right choice for office automation ?
Whatever the type of operating system, it is possible today to have an office use on all laptops. For those of you who are users of specific operating systems, your choice will probably not head towards this model. This TUF766II-AU098T Noir/Gris – GTX is in any case perfectly suited for office use.
Customary of this OS, Asus has chosen as usual. It’s the latest version of Windows 10 that’s running it.
It TUF766II-AU098T Noir/Gris – GTX is not designed to be transported, but it will do the job in the case of an exclusively fixed use, and little displacement. This model weighs 2.6 Kg, making it one of the heavyweight.
Due to the size of the keyboard, all the office oriented elements are present. Hence the good idea to offer a default number pad as a complement.
Asus chose the matt tile option for this TUF766II-AU098T Noir/Gris – GTX that does not reflect light. In use, a matte screen gets dirty less quickly than a glossy one.
If you work on your computer in the evening, you might regret that the backlight option is not provided on this laptop.
Storage in this model is in the middle of what is available elsewhere. About 500 Gb, more than enough for office use.
Clearly, this is an excellent one in this price range. Well thought out in terms of ergonomics.
Finally, the TUF766II-AU098T Noir/Gris – GTX….
The conclusion of the test TUF766II-AU098T Noir/Gris – GTX is that almost all its specifications are below the others. It’s not expensive, but it’s almost too much considering its low power.
