Chinese electronics retailer jd.com is already selling Renoir Ryzen 7 4800H-equipped laptops in China. The Asus laptops are retailing for less than US$1000 for RTX 2060/4800H configurations, a remarkable value.

Ryzen 7 4800H laptops were spotted being sold on jd.com, one of China's largest electronics outlets. Asus laptops equipped with the Ryzen 7 4800H are being shipped out right now with one-day delivery, and over 1000 units have been sold so far. Converting the RMB price of these Asus parts, we're seeing notebooks with the RTX 2060 and Ryzen 7 4800H selling priced at less than $1000 dollars. If these prices hold up in Western markets, it would mean remarkable value for money: laptops with the 4800H are priced on jd.com to compete with Intel's Coffee Lake i5 parts like the i5-9300H

Up against the i5 competition, the 4800H offers four extra cores, eight extra threads, and higher clocks. Performance-wise, the Ryzen 7 4800H goes head to head with 9th-gen i7 models like the i7-9750H

With the Chinese government easing up on COVID-19 restrictions, it appears as if the Chinese market is the first to get its hands on the new Renoir laptops. With the pandemic showing little signs of slowing down in the West, however, it's hard to tell when the Renoir lineup will arrive in other markets.

I've had a passion for PC gaming since 1996, when I watched my dad score frags in Quake as a 1 year-old. I've gone on to become a Penguin-published author and tech journalist. When I'm not traveling the world, gathering stories for my next book, you can find me tinkering with my PC.
