AMD’s Ryzen 4000 CPUs powered high-end gaming notebooks have been listed by several leading retailers and are up for pre-order till their launch on the 16th of March.
The Zen 2 based fleet of high-efficiency gaming notebooks will deliver unbelievable amounts of horsepower on par with some of the top-notch mainstream desktop CPUs available in the market at present.
The AMD Ryzen 4000 Mobility CPU lineup, codenamed Renoir, is a force to be reckoned with. The efficiency numbers that have been seen so far put them on par with Intel’s 9th-Gen Core desktop processors and even AMD’s own 3rd-Gen Ryzen CPUs which is spectacular for these 35-45W chips. The Zen 2 based Gaming notebooks would feature prices comparatively lower than Intel’s parts with the same hardware.
Ryzen 9 4900HS is also mentioned with the ROG Zephyrus G14. Canada-based retailer Memory Express has listed the ROG Zephyrus G14 with Ryzen 9 4900HS and the RTX 2060 Max-Q for Canadian $2499.99.
Evaluating some Intel-based solutions with an RTX 2060 Max-Q, the prices on those start at some $2000 US which is definitely a lot higher asking price than the AMD models which appear to be priced about $1500 US while giving the same and even better efficiency with a more modern structure that delivers higher battery times and much quieter and cooler operation in gaming workloads.
