Ive read reviews of the complete opposite where this cpu outperforms the highest Intel mobile cpu's while using less power and producing less heat.

QWERTY as in the title


There's not just one QWERTY keyboard worldwide.

Great spec for the price - heat added
(Thanks Nostradamus1008 (lol))

Good price for the spec!
Looks good.
Can you upgrade the ram?
Spanish keyboard I presume? Has the same number of keys as UK I believe and obviously can change to UK in settings but could be annoying!

Yes, it's a Spanish QWERTY keyboard which should be in the title.

You can upgrade one of the sticks, but the other is soldered in place. So a max of 24gb. Just got the slightly upgraded version of this, with the 240hz screen for 500 nicker more than this. Heartbroken. But it is superb. I was worried about the thermals affecting performance, but the don't seem to just yet.
2060 max Q is same performance as a 1660ti.

This is still a great deal, what's the info on the panel? Battery performance might be good on this too.


Looks a fantastic deal despite the Spanish keyboard and soldered RAM - heat from me

The videos I’ve watched from reputable sources show that they can get up to 100 degrees C when placed on an extreme test.

No mention is made though of them overheating. They can just get really hot, as do all cpu and GPU chips when placed on a 100% stress test?

Happy to be correct though... nothing I’ve read mentions OVERheating (ie damage, failure, shutdown etc. due to temperature)

I could have sworn that wasn’t there when I posted!

Just to note a Spanish QWERTY has the same number of keys and same layout as a UK QWERTY however about 4-5 keys as marked differently

It does outperform but has a high max temp for a midrange system.

On YouTube I watch reviews by BobOfAllTrades and OwnOrDisown. Bob managed to get to 102 Celcius when gaming moderately. Years ago I had desktops with AMD chips in them, and they overheated also.

From what I’ve read this is happening because some OEM’s are cheating out on the cooling solution, for example using 3 heat pipes in the cooler vs 5 for the Intel version.
Looks like a nice little paper for the money. Might get one for the kids.

Yep looks like this model has 3 compared to 5? in the Zephyrus S. Less heat exchangers too.

Lovely spec for price, display looks great too
How does this compare to the Dell G5 SE?

You seem obsessed with “overheating” but what do you judge that on? The extremely powerful chips got hot... did they break? I assume they broke if you say they overheated?

I don't see how you can say such a thing. Iv'e just made a comment stating that AMD Ryzen chips get hot. Don't think I'm guilty of saying this every 5 minutes! Watch BobOfAllTrades or OwnOrDisown reviews on YouTube, and you will see what I am saying, and no, the desktops I had were not broken. It is a trait of AMD processors to get hotter than Intel!
Very poor form having one of the RAM modules soldered on, means the max dual channel RAM you can get with this machine is 16GB as if you upgrade it to 24GB it won't be dual channel due to the mismatch in RAM module sizes (8GB + 16GB). As it's an AMD system I believe you you also won't be able to have "Asymmetric Dual-Channel"/"Intel Memory Flex"

Another potential laptop that has great specs but a poor screen like the Asus TUF :/

Sorry I think I thought you’d posted an earlier comment. It was someone else - so I apologise.

I think the way you’ve phrased it here is fairer - the processors get hot in use.

They don’t overheat, they just get hot, hotter than some people might like, but no actual fault, which the word “overheat” implies.

Don't be, you've got the slightly better version and won't go nuts trying to find the special characters on the keyboard.

The Dell G5 15 was recording insane CPU temps with Renoir... these are laptops with different thermal design, so both viewpoints can include elements of truth. There is no issue with renoir CPUs in general, and I have seen no issues with the Zephyrus. There was also the issue with desktop Ryzen motherboards monkeying around with power targets, causing 100C temps but that is simplz not relevant here.

*edit: it does seem to run quite hot in heavy workloads, though not compared to the Dell. It remains fine to use on the keyboard and the touchpad though. I might question its long term use for many hours of gaming per day. But if you are a huge gaming enthusiast, you probably have a desktop anyway...

AMAZING spec for the price. HOT.

I was more asking for reference to support "I've read reviews that these Ryzen chips seriously over-heat, touching 100 Degrees C most of the time, even when light to moderate gaming.". I know that this device, in particular, has certain issue. But thanks for helping out richt and bringing more knowledge to the discussion.
I'm sure i saw somewhere that the expected launch of the new HP omen in the uk was around the 16th of june or am i mistaken ?

Well, it is indeed in the title 🙈
Note that the 144Hz display is quite inferior in contrast to the 240Hz panel. I don't mean in terms of refresh rate but colour accuracy and response times

I believe it has only 58% real world test sRGB coverage
