The Asus TUF Gaming laptop is now retailing in almost all major countries across the globe and its Ryzen 9 4900H powered variant is limited but will be widely available with days. Undoubtedly, Asus’s strong cooling has helped for better performance of these AMD Ryzen 4000H mobile gaming processors.
They were expected to go head-to-head against 10th Intel Gen Comet Lake-H CPUs but in fact, these Ryzen processors have beaten Intel as well. Obviously, the Zen 2 architecture helped a lot to achieve better performance without affecting the TDP.
Thanks to @TUM_APISAK for pointing out the leak, where we see the Ryzen 9 4900H paired with the RTX 2060 along with 16 GB of RAM, obviously this is the Asus TUF Gaming A15 that is retailing for £1,399.99 or $1,721. We see the 8 core and 16 threaded APU managing a Physics Score of 22,383 points.
Its major rivals are the old Intel Core i9-9980HK and the new Intel Core i9-10980HK which retail in laptops that cost over $2500 on average, can be much higher as well.
In fact, MSI GS66 Stealth 10SFS with the Intel Comet Lake Core i9-10980HK processor costs around $3,172 but fails to beat the Ryzen 9 4900H as it scores around 20,918 points, according to Notebookcheck. While compared to the older Intel Coffee Lake Core i9-9980HK processor found in laptops costing around $2000 on average, scores a meagre 20,357 points.
So, it is pretty clear that the new Ryzen 9 4900H kills the Intel competition and registers itself the fastest 8 core CPU on a laptop. Still, considering the fact how cheap these Ryzen laptops will be, you no longer have to pay more to get a powerful laptop in 2020.
