Asus re­leases all-AMD lap­tops

Custom PC - - COMINGSOON -

Asus has just an­nounced its very first gam­ing lap­top to fea­ture an AMD CPU. The top-end ROG Strix GL702ZC uses a full-fat 8-core Ryzen 7 1700 chip, which the com­pany says is based on the same sil­i­con as the desk­top CPU, and vari­ants based on the 6-core Ryzen 5 1600 and quad-core Ryzen 3 1200 will also be avail­able. Not sur­pris­ingly, the chips will not be over­clock­able, how­ever. In ad­di­tion, the lap­tops also fea­ture AMD GPUs, with the Radeon RX 580 promis­ing de­cent gam­ing per­for­mance, as well as en­abling tear-free gam­ing on the lap­top’s FreeSync screen. The ROG Strix GL702ZC is due to be avail­able later in the sum­mer this year.
