AMD Ryzen 4000 Powered ASUS TUF Gaming Laptop now Available @ Microcenter for $1,199

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.

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.

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.
