The folks over at UltraBook Review recently shared a complete list of all laptops currently known to feature AMD’s Ryzen 7 4800H and Ryzen 7 4800HS processors. We’ll get to that list shortly but first, a little bit about these two processors.
As part of AMD’s Ryzen 4000 APU lineup, the Ryzen 7 4800H and 4800HS are premium-spec eight-core sixteen thread chips, with Vega 7 iGPUs. They deliver stellar performance: the 45W TDP on the 4800H and the 35W TDP on the voltage-binned 4800HS, mean that both are able to deliver sustained performance that’s not far off the mark from the desktop Ryzen 7 3700X. The Vega 7 iGPU delivers 1.43 TFLOPs of compute performance on-die, meaning better gaming experiences than what’s possible on the Xbox One. All in all, the Ryzen 7 4800H and Ryzen 7 4800HS are set to deliver great value in budget to midrange gaming laptops. Let’s take a look at the UltraBook review laptop lineup. What’s the best Ryzen 7 4800H/4800HS notebook set to arrive on the market?
Best premium Ultraportable: Asus Zephyrus G14 GA401IV
That’s a mouthful of a name. But get past that and the $2499 price point and you have on your hands on the finest ultraportable gaming machines on the market. The Zephyrus G14 GA401IV features up to a 4900HS and a 65W dedicated RTX 2060. More moderate configurations with the 4800H and a more reasonable GPU like the 1660 Ti will set you back less money. And you’ll still benefit from the 120 Hz IPS display.
Best 17-in 4800H laptop: Asus TUF Gaming A706
The A706 is the exact opposite of the ultraportable we looked at earlier. This monster offers a massive 17.3 in screen with a 120 Hz 1080p panel. The starting price is $999 but you can configure it with anything up to a 90W RTX 2060 and Ryzen 9 4900H. If you’re looking to maximize your bang for buck, it’d be good idea to swap the 4900H out for a 4800H and keep that RTX 2060 in for a minimal impact to frame rates.
Best value 4800H laptop: Dell G5 Special Edition
Most of the laptops sporting the 4800H series have been Asus models. this Dell laptop is an exception. With a $799 starting price, you get great value for money. The 144 Hz 15.6 in screen can be paired with upto an RX 5600M and 4800H, for a high frame rate all-AMD experience.
