Update: It appears that the sales embargo is about to lift very soon. Both Amazon and BB are now taking pre-orders for ASUS’ Ryzen 4000 powered laptops.
Get'em while they're hot
Just yesterday we reported that AMD’s Ryzen 4000 laptops were now available in the Chinese market via jd.com. In just a day, it seems that someone has taken heed and now ASUS’ TUF Gaming laptops featuring the Ryzen 7 4800H are now available at Microcenter too.
The TUF506IU-MS76 is a 15.6″ gaming laptop powered by an octa-core Zen 2 APU and an NVIDIA GTX 1660 Ti (plus a Vega 7 iGPU). It features 16GB of DDR4-3200MHz RAM (the listing incorrectly mentions 8GB) and a 1TB NVMe SSD. The Ryzen 7 4800H powered ASUS laptop is selling for $1,199 and can be shipped across the US.
That’s a pretty sweet price. Comparable hex-core Intel i7-9750H laptops cost nearly $1,500 while offering notably worse performance. Reviews for the Renoir laptops are set to land in mid-April, but considering the worsening COVID-19 situation, there’s a good chance that many outlets will miss the first wave.
