Ryzen 9 4900H spotted in Asus TUF GAMING Laptop

Just days after news broke about Intel’s Core i9-10980HK, an Asus laptop has been pictured sporting the Ryzen 9 4900H, AMD’s top-of-the-line Renoir mobile SKU. The ASUS TUF GAMING FA506IV was spotted by Videocardz.

This isn’t the first time a Renoir R9 APU has been spotted. Two additional Ryzen 9 parts were earlier seen, powering a Lenovo and an Asus Zephyrus laptop, respectively. This is the second Asus laptop known to feature a Ryzen 9 SKU. The 45W Ryzen 9 4900H will feature eight cores and sixteen threads, potentially offering better multi-threaded performance than Intel’s flagship desktop i7-9700K, albeit at a frugal 45W TDP.

The Ryzen 9 4900H in this Asus laptop has a 4.2 GHz max boost clock. This is a bit confusing as the HS variant with a lower TDP of 35W specified a boost of 4.4GHz. It’s not clear whether this is an error or an OEM decision.

Compared to the 4800H, there might be a difference in terms of integrated graphics performance. The lower-end Ryzen 7 4800H is paired with a Vega 7 iGPU. The Ryzen 9 4900H might likely make use of the somewhat more powerful Vega 8. Information is still thin on the ground. We will keep you posted.
