Featuring an AMD Ryzen™ 9 7940HS Mobile Processor, an NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ 4070 Laptop GPU, and a dedicated MUX Switch with NVIDIA® Advanced Optimus - prepare to crank the graphics settings in all the latest games. All that horsepower drives a gorgeous FHD 144Hz panel with G-SYNC support, ensuring buttery smooth motion on screen. Keep your cool in the heat of extended gaming sessions with dual 84-blade Arc Flow Fans™ and a network of five heat pipes that efficiently wick heat out of the chassis.


The chassis has been redesigned for 2023, now 4.5% smaller than the previous design. The two colour options each have a different logo location, with the Jaeger Gray edition featuring a large laser-sculpted design, and the Mecha Gray edition showing off an embossed logo on the lid. The four-way indicators can be seen even while the clamshell is closed, and the touchpad features a mech-inspired TUF logo in the corner.


Arm yourself with a desktop-style keyboard optimized for gaming. Uniform Mini LED RGB backlighting lets you brilliantly express your own unique style, while highlighted smoked WASD accents give you a visual shortcut to key movement commands. Overstroke technology triggers higher in each keystroke for faster responsiveness and effortless control. In true TUF form, each key is durable enough to withstand over 20 million presses for superb long-term reliability and precision.


Jump right into the action with the TUF Gaming A17. Running Windows 11 out of the box with AMD Ryzen™ 9 7940HS Mobile Processor and 16GB of blisteringly fast 4800MHz DDR5 RAM, your streaming and multitasking are handled with ease. Leverage the full gaming performance of the NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ 4070 Laptop GPU with a dedicated MUX Switch featuring NVIDIA® Advanced Optimus. When your game library gets full, an empty M.2 NVMe SSD slot makes upgrading storage capacity a breeze.


High core count CPUs create more heat when at full load. The TUF Gaming A17 is equipped to handle its high-power CPU with a pair of 84-blade Arc Flow Fans™. Our new variable thickness design has the dual benefit of increasing pressure while reducing turbulence, improving cooling performance without extra noise. When paired with up to 4 exhaust vents and 5 dedicated heatpipes, the 2023 TUF Gaming A17 keeps its cool in even the most demanding games.


Keep up with the pros thanks to a FHD 144Hz display. G-SYNC synchronizes the display's refresh rate with the GPU's output to reduce lag, minimize stuttering, and eliminate visual tearing for ultra-smooth and lifelike gameplay. The FHD panel hits 100% of the DCI-P3 colour space, reproducing colours exactly as the creator intended. Packed into an impressive 80% screen-to-body frame, videos and games are more immersive without sacrificing portability.


No matter your setup, the TUF Gaming A17 will keep you connected. A dedicated HDMI 2.1 port is supplemented by dual USB Type-C with DisplayPort support, as well as the power and versatility of USB 4. Fast and reliable Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) ensures that you'll be able to get online and be productive wherever compatible connections are available, or you can wire up directly with gigabit Ethernet on-board.


A 90Wh battery paired with a power-efficient AMD Ryzen™ 9 7940HS Mobile Processor provides ample endurance for hours of web browsing and video playback, with fast charging technology returning the machine to 50% charge in just 30 minutes.


In order to earn the TUF Gaming name, these laptops must successfully survive a rigorous battery of MIL-STD-810H* tests. Test devices are exposed to drops, vibration, humidity, and extreme temperatures to ensure reliability. Dependable even in the harshest conditions, the A17 is more than capable of withstanding the accidental bumps and knocks of everyday life.

Worth it, it's a lot of kit for the price

by John star star star star star

Great service from Overclockers as ever, faultless delivery. Bought this beastie to replace Zephyrus S15 (RTX 2080, 32Mb Ram, RAID SSDs, 10th gen i7) and appears to leave it for dust in every regard. Tested on Cyberpunk 2077 and Forza 4 with no problems at all on turbo mode. Will need some updates out the box including BIOS, MyAsus app handled all that fine but I would not recommend using that for file transfer if you're upgrading another Asus machine as it takes an age. Ships with McAfee on a 28 day trial so you might want to deal with that. Screen could be a touch brighter but it'll do the job nicely, clear and detailed. Branding is better than you might expect in the pictures so that's not a distraction. Keys are good, number pad is tiny but made good use of the space. Case appear to be all plastic but it's solid. There is a vent to the left of the power button that scares me a little bit in case of spills so you might want to consider that if you're buying for reckless teenagers. Speakers ain't great but I ain't using them, sending audio through an external soundcard. Touchpad is okay, I prefer a mouse though so turned that off. Bear in mind storage as you'll probably need more but there's a second bay for more. I plan to get reason installed soon for audio production and to see how that runs but I anticipate no issues with that. There is fan noise when gaming of course but think a breeze in a forest rather than a hurricane, it seems to run warm rather than hot so far. I did a lot of research and looked at bunches of options, I've had two previous ROG laptops and they caused me no real problems so it was a natural choice to get another one. If I do have any problems over the next few weeks I'll come back and edit bit for now yeah 4.8/5 and that's for vent placement.
