TAIPEI, Taiwan, June 3, 2024ASUS today announced two new models of its popular TUF Gaming laptop line, built with new ultraportable chassis designs, up to an AMD Ryzen™ 9 AI HX 370 processor, and dedicated Laptop GPUs from NVIDIA®. Combined with improved cooling and superior upgradeability, the TUF Gaming lineup raises the bar for value-oriented gaming laptop.

AI-enhanced gaming and productivity

The future of computing has artificial intelligence at its core, and local AI performance will become crucial to avoid long wait times and high costs in the cloud. Both the TUF Gaming A14 and A16 will come with up to an AMD Ryzen 9 AI HX 370 processor, with 12 cores, 24 threads, and a built-in NPU capable of 50 TOPS of AI performance. A perfect companion to AMD Ryzen AI, users can apply eye-gaze correction, and use Windows Copilot tools like email summarization locally with less power consumption.

Both machines also come with dedicated NVIDIA GeForce RTX Laptop GPUs providing excellent AI performance. Backed by the NVIDIA RTX AI platform, they offer unique capabilities and accelerations in over 500 AI-powered games and applications — photo and video editing, image generation, programming and more. RTX GPUs are equipped with dedicated AI hardware called Tensor Cores that use TensorRT software to further accelerate performance. The combination unlocks the fastest AI and experiences only available on the platform. Gaming features like DLSS Super Resolution, Frame Generation, and Ray Reconstruction will also run with excellent performance, making for a perfect companion to the 2.5K 165Hz NVIDIA G-SYNC®-compatible display on both machines.

A brand-new 14-inch form factor

For the first time, ASUS now offers a 14-inch form factor in the TUF Gaming lineup. Built to be ultraportable and ultra-powerful, the new TUF Gaming A14 weighs only 1.46 kg, and measures 1.69 cm thick. Despite these dimensions, the A14 supports up to an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4060 Laptop GPU with a 100 W maximum TGP — far higher than many of its competitors — for an exceptional gaming experience.

In addition, the TUF Gaming A14 comes with dual-channel LPDDR5 memory as well as two M.2 2280 SSD slots, so users can add storage in the second slot or upgrade for extreme amounts of storage in a 14-inch laptop. USB power delivery rounds out this portable powerhouse, for easy on-the-go charging with wide compatibility between devices thanks to USB-C®.

Redesigned 16-inch chassis with optimized airflow

The TUF Gaming A16 continues to embody the powerful and durable philosophy of the TUF Gaming line, yet despite its capabilities it's a mere 1.79 cm thin, allowing it to travel anywhere. Its AMD Ryzen 9 AI HX 370 processor, with its 50 TOPS NPU, helps drive AI-powered features like Copilot more efficiently, preserving the long battery life.

For tasks requiring even more power, like gaming and content creation, the A16 comes with up to an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 Laptop GPU. On top of excellent gaming performance, this GPU brings AI performance all the way up to 321 TOPS, which is incredible for Stable Diffusion and other advanced AI tasks.

Despite the thinner chassis, the TUF Gaming A16 boasts improved cooling as well, thanks to a new full-width heatsink and exhaust vents that span the entire rear of the laptop. Two second-generation Arc Flow fans keep crucial internal components cool, while also decreasing the surface temperature of the laptop by 7° C.

With this formidable combination of hardware, the TUF Gaming A16 is capable of a combined 402 TOPS of AI performance[i], making it one of the most powerful AI laptops available right now.
