ASUS and ACER are ready for high-end gaming laptops equipped with AMD Ryzen 5000H processors and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 GPUs

ASUS And ACER will soon launch the highest-end gaming notebooks using AMD Ryzen 5000H Zen3 processors and NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 30 series GPUs (including flagship mobile RTX 3080).

Asus has expanded the AMD product line as a whole.
In addition to putting Ryzen 5900 in G14/G15/TUF,
it also put it in SCAR/DUO and other high-end machines that only had intel systems in the past
(the graphics card is directly equipped with RTX3080).
Next, it depends on the price. The

We know that AMD and NVIDIA will launch their respective mobile CPU/GPU series at CES 2021. Therefore, OEM partners including ASUS&ACER will also show the next generation design using this new product. ASUS has developed a series of notebook computers in its ROG product line, and ACER will provide the top Nitro series with Zen 3 and Ampere!

The ASUS ROG STRIX 2021 series will use Ryzen 9 5900HX AMD processors. There will also be laptops equipped with other Ryzen 9 5900H and Ryzen 7 5800H processors. According to the specifications, the laptop will be paired with Ryzen 9 5900HX, which is the new Zen 3 core we saw in the desktop Ryzen 5000 series, so we can expect the performance of single-threaded processors to increase.

In terms of specifications, AMD Ryzen 9 5900HX will provide 8 cores and 16 threads. The chip will have 16MB L3 cache and 4MB L2 cache. The basic clock frequency of the chip is 3.30GHz, and the boost clock frequency is 4.70GHz. The detailed log of the test software shows that during the test, all cores reached 4.70GHz. Other features of the chip include enhanced Vega GPU and overclocking support, which will be AMD’s first in the field of notebook computers.

The display will include NVIDIA’s flagship GeForce RTX 3080 mobile graphics card. The card actually uses GA104 GPU. Although the exact configuration is unclear, we know that the chip will have up to 16GB of GDDR6, and the standard configuration will use 8GB of GDDR6. ROG STRIX notebook computers can also be equipped with RTX 3060 and 3070 GPUs. It can also be equipped with up to 32GB of DDR4 memory and 1TB of storage (SSD).

ASUS ROG STRIX notebooks equipped with AMD processors and NVIDIA GPUs will be available in 15-inch and 17-inch versions, with a screen resolution of up to 1440p and a refresh rate of 165Hz. Matching with RTX 3080 GPU will mean that there will be no problems in running games with the above resolutions. ASUS will also use the 10th generation Comet Lake-H CPU in the Intel version and NVIDIA configuration to launch the same notebook computer, and the Tiger Tiger-H update is expected to take place around mid-2021. This will give AMD the upper hand in the field of high-performance notebook computers, because Intel will still rely on its earlier 14nm architecture to compete with AMD’s second-generation 7nm processors and lack the same performance efficiency.

Turning to the ACER Nitro series, ACER Nitro 5 was recently launched by a German retailer at a price of 1950 euros. Configuration includes AMD Ryzen 7 5800H processor, NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 discrete graphics card, 32GB DDR4 memory and 1TB SSD storage. Notebook computers will use 8GB RTX 3080.

Other specifications listed include a 180W power supply, which may indicate that this model is equipped with an NVIDIA Max-Q version instead of a Max-P version. The Max-P version can provide a higher clock and thus provide higher performance. This is because the basic TDP of a single CPU is 45W, while the TDP of the display chip is 100-120W.
