The TUF logo has been reimagined as well, with both embossed and laser-sculpted versions. although the quality of plastic is solid with comparatively less screen and keyboard flex as compared to last year. There are vents on both the sides and the back of the laptop for cooling. This time Asus has changed notification indicator, and it's look like fan.

The keys offer a nice travel distance, while the spacing between the keys is adequate enough despite the addition of a numpad.
Full size trackpad given by Asus TUF F15 with custom logo on upper right of trackpad. The trackpad was quite smooth and responsive, it also supports gesture navigation.
Speaker and Camera of ASUS TUF F15 2022
The sound quality of Asus TUF F15 is decent when using the laptop speakers. I’d recommend using a headset for gaming as the fans can get loud and mess up the audio experience.
Asus TUF gaming laptop also comes with a 720p HD webcam for video calls, and also equipped two-way AI Noise Cancelation that works for both upstream and downstream connections.
Battery of ASUS TUF F15 2022
The Asus TUF F15 2022 has 90Wh, and comes with a 240W power adapter. We tested as a basic usage type, so I put it battery saver mode, screen brightness was 50%, and the keyboard light off. Finally we got 3.5 hours of running backup on YouTube video. The TUF also comes with MUX switch. Overall, the new TUF F15 2022 offers solid battery life for a gaming laptop.
Games Performance of ASUS TUF F15 2022
We tested four games on the TUF gaming laptop on high settings for the best performance result.
First game we tested is "CS-GO" on high settings. We getting up to 250-300 FPS, So counter strike performance had to be good, and CPU/GPU temperature are above 70.
Second game we tested is "Call of Duty Warzone" put on high setting, and DLSS put on balanced. As a expected we getting up to 90-100 FPS average like other RTX 3060 laptop gives.
Third is Apex Legends saw the machine reach the 130FPS mark on average.
Final is GTA 5 on very high setting. We getting between 105-125 FPS.
I’d recommend switching to Full HD resolution for higher frame rates. However, single-player games should be played in 1440P resolution to take advantage of the QHD display and also you can enjoy eSports, and Live streaming with panel of 300Hz . Additionally, the new MUX switch can be used directly in the software which increases performance by around five percent in games.
Apart from build quality with its aluminum lid and military-grade certification, and performance there is really nothing to complain about here, the Asus TUF F15 gaming laptop is an excellent machine. Talk about the performance Intel Core i7 12 generation give excellent output work compared with all Intel or Ryzen processor. The MUX switch was another great addition to help boost gaming performance.
If we look the laptop price of Asus TUF F15 2022 with a price tag of Rs 1,40,990, is very expensive, I was expecting around Rs 1,25,000 because when last year TUF was launched with price tag of Rs 100,000 with RTX 3060. Asus TUF F15 2022 has Pre-loaded Windows 11 Home with lifetime validity, Pre-loaded Office Home and Student with lifetime validity, and McAfee Anti-Virus (1 Years Validity).
