As per a report from WCCFTech, gaming laptops are about to get a whole lot cheaper with several OEMs prepping lineups powered by AMD’s Ryzen mobile chips and NVIDIA’s Turing GPUs. These AMD-NVIDIA combo notebooks are expected to bring the price of portable gaming rigs all the way down to $1,099.
AMD is apparently chill with manufacturers pairing NVIDIA’s GTX 1660 Ti and RTX 2060 GPUs with the new Ryzen mobility processors (announced at this year’s CES) and is offering them at a reduced cost and early launch period. As per the outlet, the following lineups will adhere to these prices:
- Acer Nitro
- ASUS TUF FX
- HP Pavilion/Omen
These vendors are expected to launch gaming laptops packing AMD’s Ryzen 3rd Gen mobile CPUs and the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti for $1099. If you opt for an RTX 2060 instead, the price climbs up to $1299. These laptops are going to be some of the most efficient ones on the block thanks to AMD’s 12nm Zen+ CPUs and NVIDIA’s 14nm Turing GPUs which get the top spot as far as the TDP is concerned.
The performance of these parts is also quite decent with the GTX 1660 Ti suitable for most eSports titles at 1080p (giving 100+FPS) and the RTX 2060 doing an admirable job at raytracing at FHD while offering beefy 60FPS-1440p base rendering performance.
After the first wave of products, the other manufacturer’s like Lenovo and Xiaomi should also join in with even cheaper offerings as low as $999. Of course, these are going to be the stripped down variants with just the essentials and for faster SSD storage, extra security and all the other do-dads you’re going to have to shell out a couple of extra hundred dollars.
