To borrow a phrase from my southern roots, it’s slim pickings if you go in search of a gaming laptop with a newfangled Ryzen 4000 series processor inside. The list further dwindles when scoping out one with a Radeon mobile GPU. What gives? AMD’s Frank Azor chalked up the “unexpected delays” to Covid-19, but says an influx of laptops based on the company’s latest hardware is right around the corner.

Not to be confused with AMD’s unreleased Ryzen 4000 desktop CPUs (Zen 3) due out later this year, AMD launched its Ryzen 4000 mobile series (Zen 2) over a month ago. We’re particularly interested in the high performance H-series CPUs, like the Ryzen 7 4800H found in the Asus TUF Gaming A15 we recently reviewed. As noted in the write-up, it is “one of the most powerful slices of multi-core silicon you will find in a non-workstation laptop.”
