Asus ROG Zephyrus G14; Ryzen 9 4900HS In The Spotlight

Source: Ars Technica Asus ROG Zephyrus G14; Ryzen 9 4900HS In The Spotlight

7nm Mobility From AMD And ASUS

The Asus ROG Zephyrus G14 is a ~$1500 gaming laptop and as such offers a decent alternative between a less expensive laptop which depends on integrated graphics and one costing twice the price but offering high end GPU performance.  At 4lbs it is a bit heavier than other laptops of it’s size, which Ars Technica determined is because of the impressive cooling found within the laptop.  The fan can get fairly loud under heavy loads, but thankfully all you hear is the sound of moving air and not bearings nor any less pleasant noises.

That is only a small part of the story however, the real meat is the brand new Ryzen 9 4900HS, with eight cores running at up to 4.3GHz.  The CPU benchmarks produced by this new chip are more than impressive, as it competes with desktop class processors from Intel.  On a single threaded Passmark test, the 4900HS surpasses the Core i9-9900K and it remains competitive in the rest of the benchmarks.  The i7-9750H from Intel was added to provide a mobile processor comparison, however when you see the results calling it competition is perhaps a bit of an overstatement.

We did eventually get one of Asus' Zephyrus G14 gaming laptops with a top-of-the-line Ryzen 9 4900HS, though—and after several days of testing, we're ready to talk about it.

    Jeremy, you’ve got the wrong weight listed. Here’s what the source article says: “At a little less than 4 pounds, it’s not exactly a battlestation of old—my old System76 Gazelle Pro came in at 5.5 pounds!”

      Cheers, will fix that.
