Intel Compares 65W AMD Renoir Max-Q Laptop w/ 10th Gen i7 Based 90W Variant in Marketing Blunder

In a rather spectacular marketing blunder, Intel has compared an AMD Renoir laptop with a 65W Max-Q GPU against a 10th Gen Core i7-10750H powered notebook packing the 90W variant of the RTX 2060. The GPU TDPs aren’t the only suspicious detail though. The CPUs of the two laptops in question, are also 10W apart. On top of this, the AMD Ryzen 9 4900HS device is also a 14″ laptop with a thinner form factor.

The two laptops featured in the above comparison are the MSI GL65 Leopard and the ASUS Zephyrus G14:

SpecsMSI GL65 (Intel)ASUS Zephyrus (AMD)
Screen Size15.6″14″
CPU TDP45W (Core i7-10750H)35W (Ryzen 9 4900HS)
GPU TDP90W (RTX 2060 mobile)65W (RTX 2060 Max-Q)
GPU Specs1560MHz Boost1185MHz Boost
Thickness27.5mm22.2mm

The worst part is that despite all the misleading marketing, the Intel Core i7-10750H powered laptop is only marginally ahead of the Renoir device. We’re looking at a lead of 20% despite the former packing a GPU with a 50% higher TDP. This isn’t the first time Intel has tried to pull something like this. However, marketing blunders of this level are fairly rare.
