It is available with either a 10th generation Core i5 or Core i7 processors. The options include a Core i5-10300H as well as a Core i7-10750H.

The Asus Flying Fortress 8 gaming laptop comes with 8GB DDR4 memory as standard and 512GB NVMe Solid State Drive for storage.

There is an option to get a 16GB RAM variant and both the memory as well as SSD can be upgraded. While it is a 15.6-inch laptop, the bezels are considerably thin but the chin is prominent where Asus logo cannot be missed.
