AMD may be impressing with its Renoir architecture, but Intel still has a stranglehold over the high-end laptop market. With NVIDIA seemingly reserving its RTX 20 SUPER GPUs for Intel-powered machines, they still may be the best bet if you are in the market for a high-end gaming laptop this year.

As much as AMD has nailed it with the Renoir architecture, Intel may still be the best choice for those who are looking to buy a high-end gaming laptop this year. Yes, we have already seen how well the Ryzen 9 4900HS can perform, for example, but the RTX 2060 in devices like the Zephyrus G14 is no match for the pinnacle of the RTX 20 series.

Accordingly, @_rogame has spotted a Core i9-10980HK and RTX 2080 SUPER laptop scoring 9,683 in 3DMark Time Spy. Sporting the full 150 W RTX 2080 SUPER and a 65 W processor, the unnamed laptop blows away the Zephyrus G14 and practically every laptop in our database.

The combination outscores the Core i7-8750H and RTX 2080 in the MSI GE63 Raider 8SG by over a 1,000 points, for example. The Raider 8SG does have a slight edge in 3DMark Time Spy Graphics, though.

Nonetheless, the benchmark emphasises the dominance that Intel will continue to have over AMD in the gaming laptop market this year. Hopefully, the Renoir architecture will convince OEMs to release high-end gaming laptops packing AMD silicon from next year, though.
