Amazon Prime Day is coming up soon and that means discounts and savings all around. AMD’s Renoir Ryzen 4000 “Renoir” powered laptops offer remarkable value as-is, often outperforming their Intel counterparts while simultaneously costing less. During Prime Day, a number of AMD Ryzen 4000-powered laptops are expected to ship for substantially less. We’re taking a look here at some of these laptops across the products stack.
HP Omen 15
The HP Omen 15 is a premium Ryzen 4000-powered device. It ships with an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 (GTX 1660 Ti starting) graphics card, alongside the eight-core AMD Ryzen 7 4800H processor (R5 4600H starting). The Omen 15 has dual-channel 3200 MHz RAM, meaning plenty of bandwidth. The HP Omen 15 is currently selling for Rs. 85,999 on Amazon, though we expect this to drop tomorrow on Prime Day.
Lenovo IdeaPad Slim 5
The IdeaPad Slim 5 is built for enterprise users wanting performance in a thin and light form factor. The IdeaPad Slim 5 features the AMD Ryzen 7 4700U along with integrated Vega graphics. The Ryzen 7 4700U is an eight-core part, clocked just a bit lower than the Ryzen 7 4800U, meaning you get the lion’s share of the CPU performance. The Slim 5 currently sells for Rs. 69,800 on Amazon. Expect to save more tomorrow.
ASUS VivoBook S14
The ASUS VivoBook S14 offers Ryzen 4000 performance at a somewhat lower price point. Coming in at Rs. 59,984 on Amazon (with prices expected to drop further), the VivoBook S14 sports a Ryzen 5 4600U with six cores, along with Vega 6 graphics and a substantial 512GB NVMe SSD.
HP Envy x360
The HP Envy x360 is an ultrabook class laptop featuring a Ryzen 5 4500U and 8GB of DDR4 memory. It has a modest 256GB SSD and weighs around 1.3 kilos. The Envy x360 comes with a 13″ 1080p display powered by Radeon Vega 6 graphics. Like most laptops in its class, it costs a pretty penny, but offers unparalleled portability in a 13″ form factor.
PS: Due to 7nm shortages, most models will be limited to a hex-core Ryzen 5 4600H/4500U. These supply issues will likely persist for the time being.
