Acer Nitro Notebook Packing AMD Ryzen 7 5800H CPU, NVIDIA RTX 3080 GPU Listed for €1950

A German retailer has listed what seems to be the long-coming AMD onslaught on the premium 17.3" laptop market - this one particularly geared for gaming. Retailer ep.de listed an Acer Nitro variant which features AMD's yet-unannounced Zen 3-based Ryzen 7 5800H CPU, a 45 W high-performance part featuring 8 physical and 16 logical cores alongside Vega-class integrated graphics. Besides the high-performance AMD APU, this laptop is one of the first to be configured with a top-of-the-line NVIDIA RTX-30 series graphics card - namely, the RTX 3080, which is very likely to be a Max-Q version for heat and power consumption considerations.

The laptop further features 32 GB of 3,200 MHz DDR4 RAM, and up to 1 TB NVMe SSD disks. There are other variants with lower configurations that seem to offer only 512 GB NVMe and an NVIDIA GTX 1650 graphics card. It seems that for now, the maximum panel resolution is set at 1080p ticking at 144 Hz. The top configuration has been listed for a cool, if not calm and collected, €1950 - a high pricing for premium hardware. Of course, variations with lower-specced hardware will be priced lower. The laptop ships with a 180 W power supply, so expect this one to be a wall hugger - and understandably so. We could be looking at an onslaught of AMD-powered premium laptops for 2021, meaning that at least in that department, it will handily beat 2020. Now if only there were significant stock of these laptops...

Hasn't been any known problem since 2018, when the first of these AMD (Radeon Vega) + Nvidia laptops started showing up.

As another poster mentioned, Intel + Nvidia setups have been a thing since ~2010 or so.

Don't believe everything you see.

RTX 3080 laptop for only €2000, and also only 8 GB VRAM. Nope.

That's a typo, at best.

Or maybe not, with those TDPs they can't actually put a full 3080 in a laptop. So if they do, it'd have to be cut down and then 8GB doesn't sound that odd.

My guess is that that 3080 is a desktop 3070 downclock to meet power requirements.

Either way, it would certainly not cost only €2000.

Nah, customers who wants the fastest possible won't settle with just 8 GB.
