XMG has offered an insight into the availability of AMD Ryzen 5000 and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 series gaming laptops. Sadly, it is bad news for gamers, as companies are uncertain of the volumes of Cezanne APUs that AMD will be able to supply in the first half of 2021.

Retailers may be accepting pre-orders of AMD Ryzen 5000 and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 series gaming laptops, but that is not necessarily a sign of ample stock levels. According to XMG, AMD's Cezanne APUs will remain scarce for the first half of 2021. Writing on Reddit, XMG states that AMD does not provide companies with much information about how many chips they can expect to receive. Accordingly, XMG is uncertain how many Ryzen 5000 APUs it will receive by the end of April.

The company has also shared its current supply forecast for its RTX 30 series gaming laptops. XMG claims that it has no major problems with sourcing Intel Comet Lake-H or RTX 30 series chips, although many gaming laptops with this combination will be unavailable until March. Retailers like Best Buy and Scan in the UK reflect XMG's comments, as they simply have more RTX 30 series gaming laptops with Comet Lake-H processors available to pre-order than ones with AMD APUs. In fact, Best Buy currently has no pre-orderable RTX 30 and AMD Ryzen 5000 gaming laptops.

XMG has emphasised it only plans to sell Cezanne laptops with dedicated GPUs for the time being, too. Hence, the company will not release any Cezanne laptops that rely on integrated GPUs until stock levels pick up, if at all. In the meantime, XMG will continue to offer AMD Renoir laptops with the GeForce RTX 3060. We have included a table of XMG's current supply forecast below, but the company states that it will continuously update this on its Reddit post.
