Stealthy and Striking
Two sleek looks give gamers greater freedom to show off their personal style. Choose between a stealthy and sleek Fortress Gray chassis or an eye-catching Bonfire Black design accented with a crimson stripe. The subtle honeycomb patterning around the base adds grip and echoes hexagon reinforcements around the chassis, while hairline brushstrokes across the palm rest keep it sleek and clean.
A textured honeycomb grip coats the bottom of the chassis with strategic cuts that double as cooling vents.
Military-grade durability makes every TUF gaming laptop a road warrior ready for all of life's extremes.
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 A15 is more than capable of withstanding the accidental bumps and knocks of everyday life.
Reduced Fall Damage
Drop tests ensure every TUF Gaming laptop can resist damage from unexpected falls, knocks, and bumps during shipment and daily use. To meet MIL-STD-810H standards, devices are tested to survive short falls. Slip the A15 into your backpack, sling it over your shoulder, and carry it with you everywhere with less stress and worry.
* Please refer to the shock bench handling test, method 516.8, procedure VI for the exact test conditions.
Expand Your Sights
Featuring a speedy IPS-level panel up to 144Hz, the TUF Gaming A15 is perfect for fast-paced gaming. With adaptive sync, the display's refresh rate synchronizes with the GPU's frame rate to reduce lag, minimize stuttering, and eliminate visual tearing for ultra-smooth and immersive gameplay. Connect an external monitor for master-level multitasking via USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C™ with G-SYNC® enabled DisplayPort 1.4, and play 4K Ultra HD movies, videos, and games on big-screen TVs with HDMI 2.0b.

Arm yourself with a desktop-style keyboard optimized for gaming. Uniform RGB backlighting lets you express your own unique style, while highlighted 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.
Immersive Surround Sound
Two upgraded speakers with four cut-outs pump out 1.8x more sound with 2.7x deeper bass than previous generations for a richer audio experience. DTS:X™ Ultra technology delivers high-fidelity 7.1-channel virtual surround sound for theater-quality audio with stereo headsets. Get the drop on enemies with the enhanced spatial awareness that surround sound provides, or enjoy the nuances of layered musical performances. Up to 8 preset modes for music, movies, and gaming genres optimize your experience further, while a built-in equalizer lets you fine-tune your settings at will.
Comprehensive cooling ensures that every TUF Gaming laptop can sustain high performance and maintain effectiveness over a long life span. Multiple heatpipes and 3 heatsinks draw heat away from core components and dissipate it quickly even during intense gaming sessions. A self-cleaning cooling design ensures that each device's cooling system stays strong for the long run, while operating modes balance performance and noise levels for the specific task at hand.
Upgrading Made Easy
Upgrading your RAM and SSD is simplified with an easy-upgrade design that gives you fast access to memory slots and storage bays. With a standard screwdriver, you can easily remove the screws at the bottom of the chassis to make your desired modifications. A special pop-open screw raises one corner of the bottom panel, making it easier to separate. Quickly upgrade or replace your RAM, or increase your responsive SSD capacity by adding a second PCIe drive.
* Additional SSD slot only available on GTX1660Ti and above models. * Additional HDD slot not available on 90Wh battery models.
Lots of I/O ports let you connect your favorite devices and start working anywhere. Two USB 3.2 Type-A ports allow for speedy data transfers, with an additional USB 2.0 Type-A port that makes three total inputs for preferred peripherals. Bluetooth also lets you also pair mice, headphones, and other compatible devices for a cleaner, wire-free working space.
