Hello, I have a TUF Model FA506IV

System build:

AMD Ryzen 7 4800H with Base Clock 2.9 Ghz, 8 Core(s), 16 threads

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060



I just bought this gaming laptop in November 2020. I notice that this laptop has low frame rates (For the Hardware) when I play light games such as Overwatch or Fortnite. I am getting around 70 to 90 fps on optimized Windows settings & in-game optimization. I really hoped that I would get at least 150 fps for RTX 2060 & AMD Ryzen 7, I paid for. I have also called the Asus Support Number & they told me to just turn on Turbo mode in the Asus Armory Crate. It barely did anything. I also installed all of the updated drivers on my computer. I really don't know what to do now. I only bought this Gaming Laptop after looking at multiple positive reviews online. Is there any way I could improve the performance of my laptop?


  • Got the same problem with my new Fa706 ii laptop. With this spec we should have get better gaming experience. I have tried every things , update every thing but the problem still exists. Hope Asus will have a solution for us

  • I have the SAME PROBLEM, but on my VivoBook Pro 17 (N705FD).

    Your GPU Fan stops working without a reason, that's why you get awful performance...

    Asus replaced my fan, I've tried every little thing software wise - the problem still persists. I've disabled every Asus piece of garbage - the problem still persists...

    It is like that since the beginning. My warranty is running out in two weeks and the problem is not solved. What to do?

    I will write this on every post on this forum until someone fixes this!!!

  • you're not te only one, many people have the same problem whit other asus models, we are still waiting for a solution

  • I know man...

    Wasted my whole day yesterday to read hundreds of posts about the same problem on this forum :D

    I only Wish I knew this before my purchase, there is no notebook that gave me this much headache.

    We hope for the best!

  • There is a small note (In very small print) on the front sticker of my laptop that says, "Actual product features and specifications may vary. Check with retailer for details." I don't know why this note is here but it's really fishy. My new RTX 2060 & AMD Ryzen 7 gaming laptop is performing like an old GTX 1070 with an Intel Core i3. Asus really needs to fix this problem for its customers.

  • Lol, I have 1650 model, and I get 80-90 FPS in game. I have not played much though on this system.

    Stats and Settings are here -

    Overwatch Game on Hard Disk Drive (HDD). Bios and Drivers are latest. On Turbo Mode.

    For CSGO I get average of 140 FPS with FPS reaching 200+. Played in high settings.

    CSGO on SSD.

    Havent played Fortnite.

    Although I see what's causing the issue for you, fix is simple just add a 8 GB RAM of same spec as of stock ( for me it was CL 22, 3200 MHz Non ECC) probably might be same for you, can be checked using CPU-Z.

    In my region it cost around 43 USD.

    I had an avg FPS of 85 before adding the RAM in CSGO,
