Gaming laptops featuring AMD’s 3rd Gen Ryzen processors are coming to fruition … and boy do they look good! In fact, my next laptop will probably powered by a Ryzen 😉
Taken from Engadget … The Zephyrus G14 is the ideal gaming laptop. It’s something that ASUS has been working towards for years with the impressively thin Zephyrus line. The G14 is incredibly fast, thin and light, and, surprisingly enough, it even packs in a decent amount of battery life. It’s a new landmark for ultraportable gaming notebooks, something that every competitor will be judged against.
It’s also a strong debut for AMD, as this is one of the first laptops to feature its powerful Ryzen 4000 series chips, including the eight-core Ryzen 9 4900HS. Finally, there’s some competition for Intel’s ubiquitous notebook chips. Ironically, that AMD hardware is paired together with NVIDIA’s latest GPUs, all the way up to the RTX 2060 Max-Q. (We’re still waiting for the new Radeon mobile GPUs to show up.)
- Lightweight and solid build
- Powerful CPU and GPU
- Great keyboard for gaming
- Faster 120Hz monitor
- Best-in-class battery life
- No webcam
- Keyboard is a bit cramped for typing
The Zephyrus G14 has everything we’d want in an ultraportable gaming laptop: it’s lightweight, powerful and lasts nearly 13 hours on battery. It’s so good, you won’t mind that it doesn’t have a webcam.
