Packed with Power
This laptop is equipped with a 2.3 GHz Intel Core i7-11800H processor with 16GB of 3200 MHz DDR4 memory and a 512GB M.2 NVMe PCIe solid-state drive.
The screen's 144 Hz refresh rate helps to minimize motion blur with the dedicated NVIDA GeForce RTX 3060 graphics help to deliver high frame rates. Additional features include real-time ray tracing for realistic lighting and reflections, AI-drive performance optimizations, and more.
The 15.6" In-Plane Switching (IPS) display supports a 1920 x 1080 Full HD resolution and delivers realistic looking images that cover 62.5% of the sRGB and 47.32% of the Adobe RGB spectrums.
Four heatpipes and three heatsinks draw heat away from critical components to quickly dissipate it to maintain optimal performance. The self-cleaning cooling design helps to ensure that your system stays debris-free.
In addition to the Thunderbolt 4 port, the TUF Gaming F15 laptop includes three USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-A ports that can transfer up to 5 Gb/s with compatible peripherals. Connect compatible monitors to the available HDMI 2.0b and Thunderbolt 4 ports.
Thunderbolt 4 is a hardware interface that utilizes the reversible USB Type-C connector and features a maximum throughput of 40 Gb/s when used with compatible devices. The connector also transmits data via USB 3.2 at up to 10 Gb/s, and dual-bandwidth DisplayPort 1.2 allows you to connect two 4K displays simultaneously. Additionally, you can daisy chain up to six devices from a single port.
High-Speed Network Connection
Minimize latency with online games and enjoy smooth video streaming experiences by connecting to wired networks through the Gigabit Ethernet port or by using the built-in 802.11ax Wi-Fi with compatible wireless devices.
Use the integrated 720p webcam, stereo speakers, and mic to video chat with friends and family or include yourself on live stream broadcasts. Connect a headset to the 3.5mm audio jack for added privacy.

Windows 10 Home
After its hiatus in Windows 8, the Start Menu has returned. Utilizing a combination of the traditional menu system and Windows 8's Live Tiles, the improved Start Menu gives you more information at a glance, showing notification information alongside your applications and other pinned items.
Microsoft's digital personal assistant, Cortana can answer your questions with information gleaned from both your device and the internet at large. You can type or even talk with her, if your system has a microphone. Using her Laptop, Cortana keeps track of your needs and wants, and she learns over time to improve her information gathering skills.
After nearly 20 years, Microsoft has finally replaced its Internet Explorer web browser. With Microsoft Edge, users can write directly on web pages and share notes with friends and colleagues. It also improves the online reading experience by adding a distraction-free mode and read-it-later functionality. Edge also has built-in Cortana integration; you can have her help you find a restaurant, make a reservation, and pull up directions without leaving your browser.
For Windows 10, Microsoft has unified the Windows Store. Now, apps for PCs, tablets, and phones will all be accessible from one place. And with support for Universal Apps, one version of an app can work across all your compatible devices automatically.
Windows 10 was designed for a variety of screen sizes and input styles, and with its Continuum feature, it automatically adapts to fit your needs. A Windows 10 tablet on its own requires a touch-centric approach, but attaching a mouse and keyboard will shift everything to a more traditional interface. You can even attach an external monitor to your Windows 10 phone for a near-desktop experience. But it's not just the operating system; Windows Universal Apps take advantage of Continuum as well.
Xbox on Windows 10
Gaming is a big focus of Windows 10. Xbox integration allows for PC players to match up against Xbox One players on supported games, and if you have an Xbox One, you can even stream compatible titles to your PC. Native support for recording with the new Game DVR feature makes it easy to capture and share your gameplay. The new DirectX12 takes better advantage of multi-core processors, giving games a performance boost, even on older hardware. Windows 10 also features native support for virtual reality headsets, such as the Oculus Rift.

Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-06-15Arrived in great condition and the box was unharmed. I'm very happy with my purchase! There were the normal 'setting up pains' of getting any new computer, but now that's out of the way and I love using it. It runs smooth, and I have no problems so far! Occasionally the fans get a little loud when gaming. It has great color and graphics. The size it perfect for me, it's compact enough for portability and big enough for a great visual experience. There's even room for two people to play together on the same keyboard, for those who can't play together another way. It's somewhat squished with two people but it works. One of my favorite things about it is the keys. They are so smooth to type on, play with, and have such cool backlights. The lights are easy to turn off if desired, and you can change the brightness and mode all by pressing function and using the arrow keys. You'll need to download TUF Aura Core from the app store to change the color. It's free and easy to use as well. I just didn't know that I needed to download it at first! It would have been nice if that was a little clearer. To sum it up I love the laptop, it works great and looks amazing as well. B&H have been awesome and I'd definitely recommend anyone to buy from them.
Surprising multifunctional laptop computer.

Date: 2022-05-01i like this laptop very much, it has a 2 to 3 hour battery life, (non-gaming) and the Nvidia 2060 with Ray Tracing can handle most of the demanding games. It has no moving parts and can withstand a drop or two. But I don't feel like dropping it. LOL. great laptop.

Date: 2022-04-21I recommend this laptop for 3d artist and gamers. It was super fast you know .
Jury is out on this one
Rated 3 out of 5
Date: 2022-11-05Even though it's a gaming computer, I've only used it for home office purposes. It still seems to get hot fast with non-gaming use. Also, it has an odd 15 second or so delay when waking from Sleep Mode that I've never had on other computers. Hoping for the best, but not sure how long this one will last
