ASUS is about ready to unveil its next-gen 2021 ROG and 2021 TUF Gaming laptops, teasing a new special event for January 12. They've also teased on the official Twitter account for TUF Gaming, too:
The new 2021 TUF Gaming design has been overhauled for this year, with a new rectangular design that the video teased has been upgraded in a big way as the previous-gen designs didn't have great cooling. We don't know how much ASUS has tweaked the design, but now we know we'll be detailed in full on January 12.
We should expect ASUS to be using either AMD's new Ryzen 5000H "Cezanne-H" or Intel's new Tiger Lake-H 11th Gen CPUs inside of the new 2021 laptops.
ASUS is preparing its next-gen ROG Zephyrus GA15 GA503QS gaming laptop which packs the Zen 3-based AMD Ryzen 7 5800HS processor (which should be an 8-core, 16-thread model).
Inside, the Ryzen 7 5800HS processor will be joined by an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 graphics card with something very interesting: 16GB of VRAM. If it does indeed pack 16GB of GDDR6, the ROG Zephyrus GA15 GA503QS will be one of the first laptops to pack a GPU with 16GB of VRAM.
We should expect the full-fat GA102 GPU with 6144 CUDA cores, which means it has more CUDA cores than the desktop GeForce RTX 3070 graphics card. The GeForce RTX 3080 inside of the ROG Zephyrus GA15 GA503QS is on a 256-bit memory bus with its memory expected to be at least 14Gbps, meaning we should have 448GB/sec of memory bandwidth.
ASUS is preparing for a big year in ROG STRIX gaming laptops it seems, with AMD's new Ryzen 9 5900HX processor to be offered -- as well as NVIDIA's new stack of Ampere GPUs.
The new ASUS ROG STRIX gaming laptops will be configured with high-end GeForce RTX 3080, GeForce RTX 3070, or a GeForce RTX 3060 Ti -- and for the first time it'll be joined with a high-end AMD CPU. Intel won't be launching it's new Tiger Lake-H 8-core CPUs for another few months at least, so AMD's high-end Ryzen 9 5900HX will just have to do (and it's not like that's a bad thing at all).
ASUS will be offering up a 2560 x 1440 (2K) display with a super-smooth 165Hz refresh rate -- a perfect compromise between a resolution too lacking (1080p) and a resolution that requires too much grunt for a laptop (4K).
Razer has unveiled its 2020 refresh of the Razer Blade Stealth 13 laptop, packing a 13.3-inch super-fast 120Hz-capable 1080p display and Intel's new Tiger Lake CPU.
The new Razer Blade Stealth 13 is powered by Intel's latest 11th Gen Core Tiger Lake processors, with the Intel Core i7-1165G7 processor based on the new 10nm Super Fin architecture. We have 4-core/8-thread at up to 4.7GHz -- a large 800MHz increase over the previous-gen Razer Blade Stealth 13.
Razer is offering two different display options with a 1080p 120Hz display, while if you want a higher-end OLED you're getting dropped down to 60Hz. If you want a 4K panel you're stuck with the older Ice Lake CPU, while the stock Razer Blade Stealth 13 rocks the 1080p 60Hz OLED panel.
Alienware has just unveiled its very latest gaming laptop with the new Area-51m packing some serious heat underneath its keyboard.
Inside, you can configure it with an Intel Core i9-10900K processor and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER graphics -- but a super-fast 360Hz refresh rate. It's impressive considering the Alienware Area-51m packs a large 17-inch display with a native 1080p resolution.
Alienware's new Area-51m gaming laptop can be configured with up to 32GB of DDR4-3200 RAM, up to 2 x 2TB NVMe M.2 PCIe SSDs, Wi-Fi 6 and GbE connectivity. You can option out the 1080p display for a higher-end 4K 60Hz panel if you want, too.
Acer just announced the Spin 7 convertible laptop, and the specifications are quite impressive. It features a 14-inch IPS touchscreen on a 360-degree hinge, Qualcomm's brand new Snapdragon 8cx Gen 2 5G for excellent performance and battery life on the go, and best of all; it includes antimicrobial coatings to keep the germs away.
If it weren't for the global pandemic situation, the most notable feature about Acer's Spin 7 convertible laptop would undoubtedly be the Qualcomm chipset that it's built around. The Spin 7 is the very first laptop to employ the Snapdragon 8cx Gen 2 5G compute platform. The 8cx G2 supports the latest wireless communication standards, such as 5G and Wi-Fi 6. It's also incredibly power efficient, boasting "multi-day" battery life.
Acer also equipped the Spin 7 with a 14-inch FullHD IPS touchscreen panel, which supports 100% of the sRGB gamut. The display is mounted with a 360-degree hinge that enables you to use the device in four modes: notebook, tablet, tent, and presentation mode. Acer even tossed in a dockable Wacom AES 1.0 pen that offers 4096 levels of pressure sensitivity.
GIGABYTE has just unveiled its latest ultra-thin professional gaming laptop, the new AORUS 15P. Check it out:
The new AORUS 15P rocks Intel's latest 10th-gen Intel Core i7-10750H processor, which offers up 6 cores and 12 threads of CPU performance up to 5GHz. We have the AORUS 15P starting with 8GB of DDR4-2666 RAM, but you can configure it with up to 64GB of RAM.
We have a couple of options when it comes to discrete graphics, with the AORUS 15P WB rocking a higher-end NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 MaxQ with 8GB of GDDR6 memory, while the AORUS 15P KB has an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 with 6GB of GDDR6.
ASUS dropped a pair of ZenBook ultraportable laptops, and one of them features a brand-new display aspect ratio. The Zenbook S includes a taller-than-standard 3:2 display for improved document viewing. ASUS also released the ZenBook Flip 13 convertible laptop.
ASUS's new ZenBook models are powerful little machines. Both systems feature 10th generation Intel Core processors; the ZenBook Flip 13 is available with an i5-1035G1 or an i7-1065G7. The ZenBook S comes equipped with an i7 onboard.
The ZenBook S is positioned as a somewhat higher-end laptop compared to the Flip 13. Not only does it come standard with a more potent processor, but it also includes 16GB LPDDR4x memory and a 1TB PCIe NVME 3.0 x4 M.2 SSD. The ZenBook Flip 13 consists of a smaller capacity 512GB NVMe drive, and you can get it with 8GB or 16GB of memory. Curiously, the memory in the Flip 13 runs a 3733MHz, whereas the ZenBook S includes slower 3200MHz memory.
Eurocom has just unveiled what seems to be the most crazy-specced laptop I've seen so far, packing Intel's latest-and-greatest Core i9-10900K processor and NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER (Non Max-Q) graphics card. Introducing the Eurocom Sky Z7 Mobile Supercomputer.
You can option all the way up to the flagship Core i9-10900K + RTX 2080 SUPER, with up to 128GB of fast DDR4 memory, and an insane 13TB of SSD storage. This can come from 3 x M.2 NVMe drives (4TB each) and then 1TB of M.2 SATA (13TB total).
Better yet, if you need the super-fast CPU and 128GB of RAM, and needed that huge 13TB of super-fast NVMe storage -- they're easily accessible ports for users to quickly upgrade (or even plug-and-play) super-fast NVMe SSDs into Eurocom Sky Z7 Mobile Supercomputer.
Lenovo has just flexed its muscle in the gaming laptop and gaming PC market, with the introduction of a bunch of new Legion-branded gaming systems.
We have 5 new gaming PCs from Lenovo which all pack AMD's latest Ryzen processors, with the Legion 5 gaming laptops packing AMD's new Ryzen 7 4800H-series mobile processor. Inside, NVIDIA takes care of the GPU side of things with its GeForce RTX 2060 graphics card.
Lenovo offers a 15-inch and 17-inch version of its Legion 5 laptop, with 60Hz and 144Hz refresh displays. We have up to 16GB of DDR4-3200 RAM, up to 1TB of PCIe SSD with prices starting at $760 for the 15-inch model and $1090 for the 17-inch Legion 5.
