Allied Gaming has just launched its new flagship gaming laptop and man... it's a beast -- a beast that won't require you hulking out of your wallet and destroying your credit cards.
The new Allied Tomcat-A 16-inch gaming laptop has some pretty monstrous specs: AMD's new Ryzen 9 5900HX processor, 16GB of DDR4-2666 SO-DIMM RAM, NVIDIA's super-fast GeForce RTX 3080 graphics card, 500GB of NVMe PCIe 3.0 SSD, and it all gets displayed on a 16-inch IPS-based 1440 165Hz display.
You can customize it the Allied Tomcat-A, upgrading the 16GB of DDR4-2666 to 16GB of DDR4-3200 -- or choose the beefier 32GB of DDR4-3200 RAM. There's also the option of upgrading the 500GB NVMe M.2 SSD to a 1TB or 2TB model, as well as the option of upgrading a second NVMe M.2 SSD (500GB, 1TB, or 2TB).
Allied CEO Aron Saether-Jackson explains: "Since our inception in 2019, we've aimed to disrupt the prebuilt desktop PC industry. In desktops, we felt there was a lack of meaningful innovation from leading brands in terms of functionality and design, which ledto us developing our range of mesh-fronted, high-airflow desktop gaming PC models".
"Observing the market, consumers are being forced to pay exorbitant prices for the latest and greatest technology, wrought almost wholly by a lack of competition. Yes, there are supply challenges, but that's not an excuse to charge excessively for tech that launched at much lower prices. Reading the room and listening to gamers' feedback, they're clearly aggrieved by over-inflated pricing that just keeps rising. In short, they're jack of price jacks, and we're here to change that".
Ricky Saether-Jackson, Allied COO added: "We've worked closely with one of the world's leading gaming laptop manufacturers to create our Tomcat range. We're delivering the ultimate payload in every laptop: the best technology, premium design and build quality, unparalleled value for money, and supersonic dispatch times".
