Not worth the money if you want excellent performance, better to pay a bit more for an intel chip, if you want a 'decent deal' with 'okay' performance its good.


After doing some research a number of review sites were comparing 6C/12T Intel CPUs with the 4C/8T Ryzen 7 and these cost more. Another review site tested the Ryzen 7 3750H in a single channel RAM configuration(8GB) and Intel systems in dual channel(notebookcheck),and CPUs suffer if the RAM is not in dual channel.

Also,I saw one youtube review where the Core i3 8300H was apparently 15% faster in non-gaming benchmarks,but consumed 20% more power meaning much more heat,noise,etc which meant shorter battery life. The Core i3 8300H is a 45W TDP CPU and the Ryzen 7 3750H is a 35W TDP CPU. The different in speed was Intel configuring the Core i3 8300H to consume more power.

Also "paying a bit more" - not really. Just did a quick search on Amazon now:
amazon.co.uk/ASU…-10

If we stick to the same brand,Asus with a Core i5 9300H and a GTX1660TI(slower and no raytracing) is £1,178.78 and if you want a RTX2060 its £1,579.00(but a six core CPU too). Asus is generally more expensive than other brands.

Laptopsdirect cheapest Intel laptop with a RTX2060 is £1200 and uses a Core i3 8300H and only has 8GB of RAM and a 256GB SSD:
laptopsdirect.co.uk/st/…r=1

Their cheapest GTX1660TI laptop with an Intel CPU is £1100:
laptopsdirect.co.uk/nav…r=1


So,just to get the Intel equivalent costs over £300 with less RAM and SSD capacity. Even if Intel is better you are paying more,and having to get a slower graphics card and probably less RAM and SSD space.

For under £900 this is an excellent deal IMHO,especially as you get 16GB of RAM and a 512GB SSD.

Was waiting on the Huawei Mate 30 Pro but this will do.
Brilliant price, heat added!
Is the 2060 only slightly better than 1060? I currently have that so not a massive upgrade? Will look out for a good deal of 2070 or 2080 as 1060-2060 isnt hige right just the next gen up but similar performance.? Or am I wrong...
I'd still seek out reviews. It seems fairly common that some laptops reduce CPU speed because of overheating, rather than letting the CPU do what it was intended to do, and the laptop having adequate cooling to let it do so. Crazy.

Yeh pretty sure. The 1660ti is still behind the 2060. One dev bringing in Ray tracing for one game isn't really a big deal, especially since Ray tracing support is rubbish in general without the extra hassle.

GPU requirements in games go up way faster than CPU requirments, in 18 months these will be evenly matched.
Great price.
I would like to see it with USB-C, with the same price :-) And fingerprint would be great too :-)
Dont need a gaming laptop but my lenovo piece of rubbish is packing up and I'd like something reliable. My teenagers asus lasted 5 years of hard use so I'm thinking about this. What else is worth a look as the reviews suggest it has software issues?

I said it was a good deal. But the CPU is still bad. The cpu bottlenecks the gpu. I've watched reviews seen the benchmarks. It's a problem.

Theres nothing particularly weak with the CPU at this price point. Even at 1080P most modern titles will be largely GPU bound at high detail.l, especially with a mobile GPU.

You unfortunately have ignored the entire context of my post, which shows I actually did read the reviews,so yes I did do enough research(one of the ones which tested gaming performance used single channel memory which destroys CPU performance with Ryzen) and the Core i3 8300H comparisons showed that due to its higher TDP it also had extra performance, but consumed 20% more power in CPU benchmarks. You go on about bottlenecking but your alternative is £400 more,which is 45% higher price.

To get an Intel laptop closer in price you generally need to go for a slower GTX1660TI with no raytracing(which Cyberpunk 2077 will use),less RAM and a smaller HDD,so you probably cut the premium more TBF.

amazon.co.uk/HP-…-10

Looks good,but comes with a GTX1660TI and 8GB of RAM and currently not in stock for weeks,so hit and miss on whether you get one.

Also lacks a 120HZ screen.

Edit to post.

Already posted:
hotukdeals.com/dea…224

GTX1660TI MaxQ so lower performance than standard laptop GTX1660TI and lower than an RTX2060.

If you want a faster CPU you need to get a slower GPU,and if you want a faster GPU you need to get a slower CPU if you are spending under £1000.

I suppose in that case you need to look at what kind of games you play. RTS games might need more CPU,but a game which pushes graphics might need more GPU.

The Ryzen CPUs are just as loud as Intel, but not as good.

Also AMD software is garbage. They don't even support undervolting on mobile chips, unlike Intel XTU, and the control panel is garbage too, especially for GPUs.

But even if this had an RTX 2080 I still wouldn't waste money on one of these shitty ASUS laptops again
