Asus TUF Gaming laptop with tasty combo of AMD Ryzen 7 5800H APU and Nvidia RTX 3060 Mobile GPU appears on German retailer site
Gamers looking for a current mobile Ryzen/GeForce combination can look forward to some SKUs coming from Asus. An Asus TUF Gaming A17 laptop has been listed on Expert.de (spotted by @momomo_us) that features an AMD Ryzen 7 5800H APU and an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 Mobile GPU. None of these parts have been officially announced yet, but they certainly make for an exciting combination.
The AMD Ryzen 7 5800H APU, which is part of the upcoming high-performance mobile Ryzen 5000 range from AMD, has 8 cores and 16 threads with clocks from 3.0 GHz to 4.3 GHz, which as pointed out by VideoCardz, is a very similar range to the Renoir Ryzen 7 4800H (2.9 GHz – 4.2 GHz). The likely Zen 3-based processor has a 16 MB cache according to the retailer listing.
As for the equally intriguing Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 Mobile GPU, which comes as a surprise to no-one but will be a welcome addition in a Ryzen 5000-powered laptop, this graphics processor is actually listed as “GN20-E3”. This is the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 Max-P then, which apparently comes with 6 GB VRAM according to the retailer’s specsheet and a 192-bit memory bus.
A potent combination of Ampere and Cezanne means this Asus TUF Gaming FA706QM-HX011T laptop could end up being on the top of many a mobile gamer’s wishlist over the coming months. Along with a 144 Hz-capable screen, Adaptive-Sync technology, Wi-Fi 6 support, and Optimus graphics-switching technology, the Asus TUF Gaming A17 with Ryzen 7 5800H and GeForce RTX 3060 is a potential head-turner.
