Moving up the ladder, the FX505D is also available in a configuration featuring a Ryzen 7-3750H CPU and a choice between a Turing-powered GTX 1650 or GTX 1660 Ti GPU.
For its display, the FX505D comes with a 15.6-inch Full HD display with a 25ms response time. By default, the display’s refresh rate is capped at 60Hz, but the top-of-the-line SKU does come with a 120Hz refresh rate.
