From the past few months, AMD was dominating the computer market from its top-notch CPUs for desktop. However, their new 4000series chipsets have to work for laptops.
Yes, there are already AMD laptops and even I’m using one which has (Ryzen 5 2500 + Vega 8 IGPU). but that was not enough for gaming or editing.
So AMD introduced their new line up AMD 4000 series chips for laptops. The Ryzen 9 4800HS has 8 Zen-core and 16 threads with a very lower TPD 45W.
To this date, the Acer Predator Helios 700 was known for the most Powerful laptop available in the market because of the turbo boost and extra cooling system.
Asus has launched its new gaming laptop on ROG lineup ASUS ROG Zephyrus G14. which is also the debut for Ryzen 9 4900HS.
Before we diving into anything lets take a look at the specs.

The ROG Zephyrus G14 is those kinds of laptops you can use for anything. It doesn’t matter if you are a Gamer, Creator, develops or just wants a PC for doing anything. This laptop has very fewer compromises expect the webcam.
Also if you have checked the specs above you might notice something which is also not available for any laptops. Yes, I’m talking about the Wifi -6 card.
Honestly, I’m the guy from the RED team (AMD) but if you are from the BLUE Team (Intel) still you have to appreciate this chipset. I would say this will be the biggest turning point for the AMD not immediately but will be in the next few years.
