ASUS with their Republic of Gamers line are looking to be the first people to squeeze one of these great 8 core CPUs into a laptop. The ROG Strix GL702CZ will be equipped with a AMD Ryzen 7 1700 CPU and also the AMD RX 580 GPU. These base specifications should be more than powerful enough for modern AAA gaming on the Full HD, Freesync 17.3″ Screen.
Pre-Orders Open for the First Ryzen Gaming Laptop
AMDs Ryzen 7 CPUs have been available for desktop PCs for quite a while, they have also managed to cause quite a stir with some very impressive performance results. Ryzen has been a huge success for AMD and while these processors are already well-established in the desktop space, we are still waiting on laptop versions. Fortunately, it doesn’t look like we’ll be kept waiting much longer, as the first Ryzen-powered gaming laptop has gone up for pre-order at UK retail. It’s an ASUS ROG laptop, featuring a Ryzen 1700 and an AMD GPU.
