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.

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.

It has 1TB Solid State Drive. RAM is upgrade-able, not soldered, because it says: Memory Slots (Total): 2

Seems they're pricing them similarly to the 9750H based systems.... Pretty much what I expected.

They'll come down in price for sure, with a global recession/depression looming everyone will have to adjust their margins!

I would take ryzen 4800H over 9750H any day, same gaming performance, much better app-performance, less consumption and heat and freesync by default.

I bought my GTX 1070 laptop 3ish years ago now, and 1660 ti barely beats it. It was $1199. Why people get excited about 3 year old performance is beyond me.

$1290 i bought it at launch for the i7-7820hq cpu in it, i think it was jan 2017. it was the most top end cpu at the time though so pretty good price. gpui performance has been relaly stagnant, but I think Ampere will change the game.
