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.

Fast Graphics

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.

Vivid Colors

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.

Comprehensive Cooling

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.

Fully Connected

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

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.

Stay-In-Touch

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.

Play It Loud

Windows 10 Home

Start Menu

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.

Cortana

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.

Microsoft Edge

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.

Windows Store

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 Continuum

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.
