As a preamble to this test
Latest release in the range Asus, we’ve been running tests on TUF566IV-HN349T Noir – RTX…The overall quality of a model depends on the use you make of it.So we ran tests on Asus TUF566IV-HN349T Noir – RTX to find out what it was worth.
This article is therefore composed according to functions; What is the purpose of this model?
TUF566IV-HN349T Noir – RTX enough for internet use?
Because a computer is above all a tool for leisure and educational use (browsing e-commerce or information sites, writing e-mails, etc.), you need to make sure that it will stand the test of time and that it is of high quality.The objective is to ensure the proper execution of the tasks you request.
That’s the direction taken by Asus with this TUF566IV-HN349T Noir – RTX.The computer is positioned at the same level as competing models in this price range. Material that seem to be well-designed.
With a 15 inches size, it is in the average, and you can carry it relatively easily. As for the processor level, this model is equipped with the Ryzen 9 4900H. Its power will give you the assurance of having a laptop that will work very well for 10 years. In addition, with this model, you have at your disposal a tool that will make your internet navigation fluid. A standard equipment with 16 Gb of RAM. Even if it has free slots in which you can add memory strips, it’s more than enough to get you started.
For hard drive sizing, Asus decided to put 500 Gb. This is the standard model. Almost the same as its competitors and what is currently done on the market, you will have room to store. And when you reach the limit, if you get there, you can always buy an external hard drive or a local file server like Synlogy NAS.
Last point about the autonomy. the TUF566IV-HN349T Noir – RTX can work 3 hours in wifi mode only activated by the batteries. The batteries that equip this model are less efficient than those of other models in the same category. In other words, you will have to keep this TUF566IV-HN349T Noir – RTX most of the time connected to the power cable.
TUF566IV-HN349T Noir – RTX the right choice for watching movies ?
Asus has not designed this model for strictly multimedia use. If you are very mindful of the quality for multimedia use, we advise you to turn to models other than the TUF566IV-HN349T Noir – RTX; more high-end products, which on the other hand will be a little more expensive. Finally, a simple computer, yet not really made for audio and video.
Asus has chosen a medium size screen to meet everyone’s needs. This diagonal of 15 inches and a resolution of 1920×1080, is a good compromise. The image quality is bright and colorful, and provides an immersive experience. Clearly, big enough to tire your eyes when watching movies, but also rather light (2.3 kg) when you have to carry it.
Unfortunately, the screen of this model is not provided with a glossy finish. This results in poorer quality in environments with intermediate to low light levels. The display legibility will therefore be a little off.
Therefore, when used in daylight conditions, you will appreciate the lack of this feature, as the light induces reflections, making it difficult to view.
On the sound side, it TUF566IV-HN349T Noir – RTX has good components: board and integrated speakers. By pushing the volume with music, we tested the rendering. Even if the result is good, be aware that even the best laptops will never beat a hi-fi system on this point. If necessary, you can later supplement with external elements if you consider the results too insufficient.
This model has one of the best processors of the moment; the Ryzen 9 4900H. Unlike the brand’s older processors, energy efficiency is optimal and consumption is well controlled. Performance corresponding to billions of calculations per second.
As far as applications are concerned, did Asus not install any. The operating system and that’s it. This is a Windows 10 that allows you to add the free or paid software you want. Clearly, to watch movies, nothing more.
Due to the level of the graphics card, you have one NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060, which with 16 Gb de Ram, will allow you to make multimedia (movie viewing, and some simple photo retouching). Sufficient for the majority of you, this will not be the case for those who want to make 3D images.
Regarding the connectivity part, Asus has made efforts with available 4 ports. Much better than most of the competition. Speakers, a mouse (wired), an external hard drive and an output to a pocket projector when on business trip or when you travel.
Nothing is more unpleasant than a computer that shuts down before the end of the film because of batteries of poor autonomy. That’s only 3 hours of battery life you have at your disposal. You will have to anticipate the duration of the films, otherwise you will not know the end. This situation may annoy many people, considering that the interest of a laptop is to be free of these details.
TUF566IV-HN349T Noir – RTX the right choice for travelling connected ?
It’s a laptop, it folds like a laptop, but because of its size and weight, nothing makes TUF566IV-HN349T Noir – RTX to be easily carried around.

Thanks to its processor TUF566IV-HN349T Noir – RTX, the use in exclusive battery mode is one of the most important of the competition. With the low voltage on the processor, the autonomy is increased and allows to last longer than competing models.
On the other hand, these are estimated data based on average laptop usage.
Battery life is worse than the competitors, with only 3 hours before the laptop has to be plugged back into the mains.
In order to reduce the risk of breakage while on the move, this model is equipped with a 500 Gb SSD hard drive. SSDs are much faster and lighter, and have no moving parts. Thanks to this, Asus was able to almost completely eliminate the noise caused by the rotation of the platters and the movements of the read/write heads existing on conventional disks.For those who do not have enough space on the disk, it will be necessary to go through the option of a subscription on the cloud; the price decreases regularly.
Even if a portable laptop stays at the hotel 80% of the time, it is relevant to have a screen that is not too big so as not to be disturbed, but big enough to enjoy the image. The TUF566IV-HN349T Noir – RTX is right in the middle compared to the competition with 15 inches and an acceptable weight.
At the connector level, this model provides 4 inputs. Convenient for travelling when you will need it, it ranks among those with the most.
