Update | Launch price and pre-orders for the Asus ROG Zephyrus G14 with Ryzen 9 4900HS and RTX 2060 Max-Q finally unveiled
(March 30, 2020 update: Added table listing the SKUs, specifications, prices, and availability of the Zephyrus G14 GA401 series.)
AMD is about to get real serious in the high-end gaming laptop market. After making the smallest of splashes with last year's Core i5-like Ryzen 7 3750H, the chipmaker will soon launch the 35 W Ryzen 9 4900HS that is expected to outperform a 45 W Intel Core i9-9880H or even the unlocked Core i9-9980HK. The Asus Zephyrus G14 will be the first gaming laptop to ship with the anticipated Ryzen 9 4900HS, but official prices have been a big mystery.
Now that we're moving closer to launch, retailers like Best Buy have made landing pages for the Zephyrus G14. The first configuration will come with the aforementioned Ryzen 9 CPU, a GeForce RTX 2060 Max-Q GPU, and a 1080p display packed in a narrow-bezel 14-inch form factor for $1450 USD. When considering that most mid-range 15.6-inch gaming laptops with RTX 2060 graphics are typically retailing for about $1100, the $1450 launch price for a high-end 14-inch size is not outrageous especially for the CPU performance you'll get.
Expect full reviews on the Asus Zephyrus G14 to come in the weeks ahead when units become more readily available.
