It's no secret that the latest Zen 2 or Zen 3 series of mobile processors are extremely fast. We opined last year that these AMD CPUs have proven themselves worthy of powering the latest flagship Ultrabooks and yet major manufacturers like Dell and HP continue to use Intel exclusively for their high-end XPS and Spectre laptops, respectively. Fortunately, most other manufacturers have been opening up to mobile Ryzen at a slow but steady pace.
Asus is perhaps the biggest and most headstrong supporter of mobile Ryzen. While MSI seems content on offering AMD CPUs for just a small handful of models instead of its more popular Intel-only GE, GS, or GT models, Asus has been integrating AMD options across almost all of its existing families including the VivoBook, ZenBook, TUF, and ROG series. Asus has significantly more AMD laptop SKUs than any other manufacturer at the moment and some are even exclusively AMD with no Intel alternative. The fact that Asus has entrusted mobile Ryzen to power some of its flashiest laptops of 2021 like the ZenBook 13, ROG Flow, or Strix Scar 17 G733 while other makers have AMD options only for their low-end to mid-range models shows how forward-thinking Asus has become in the Intel vs. AMD landscape.
It's only a matter of time before other major OEMs follow on Asus' footsteps by launching flagship Ultrabooks or gaming laptops with both Intel and AMD options.
