An ASUS partner store has apparently leaked the prices of the Ryzen 4000 “Renoir” powered laptops. The store in question is a Swiss retailer, selling a wide range of ASUS products from laptops to servers, gaming as well as routers. The leaked laptops are the next-gen ASUS TUF Gaming lineup powered by the Ryzen 5 4600H and the Ryzen 7 4800H. The former is a hex-core chip running at 2.3GHz base and 4GHz boost while the latter is an octa-core part with a boost of 4.2GHz. Both chips support SMT, essentially doubling the thread-count. They are paired with the 7nm variant of the Vega graphics, the 4600H packing 6CUs (384 shaders) and the 4800H with 7 CUs (448 shaders).
All the Ryzen 4000H APUs are 45W with the exception of the 4800HS which is limited to 35W. The latter will be exclusive to ASUS laptops. Now, for the pricing:
The midrange ASUS FA506 packing the Ryzen 5 4600H and a GTX 1650 is priced at 1,095 CHF (Swiss). That means it’ll sell for around US$700-800. Not bad, that’s the same as the Intel Core i5-9300H laptops.
The base model featuring the Ryzen 7 4800H starts at 1,245 CHF which means you should be able to grab a 4800H notebook for nearly as low as US$999. You get 8 Zen 2 cores, a GTX 1650, a 512GB NVMe drive and 16GB RAM. That’s in the same range as the Core i7-9750H, two extra cores and six additional threads for the same price.
The higher-end ASUS TUF Gaming laptops with the Ryzen 7 4800H will cost in the US$1,200 to $1,500. The APU is unchanged but you get a beefier GPU in the form of the NVIDIA GTX 1660 and the RTX 2060 for $1,250 and $1,500, respectively. The storage has also been upgraded to 1TB NVMe and the RAM is pegged at 16GB.
Overall, these prices look pretty sound. Keep in mind that I’ve made a rough estimation of the US prices, and the final MSRP may diverge slightly when you take into account the taxes and all. Regardless, this should put the pressure on Intel in the mobility space for the first time in…well, forever. (aricampanimalhospital.com)
