AMD already announced and launched the AMD Ryzen 4000 series mobile CPUs a month ago. It also has been showcasing the RX 5600M and the RX 5700M mobile graphics since January. The company was all set to make its move towards the gaming notebook market. But as we are all aware, this turned out to be more of a paper launch due to the COVID-19 outbreak result in industry-wide slowdown or shutdown in most countries.
AMD confirms widespread availability
But the Chief Architect of Gaming Solutions at AMD said via Twitter that we’ll see sub $1,000- $1,500 gaming notebook segment with the new generation CPUs. Thanks to its increased memory capacity, these will be paired with 3200MHz DDR4 SO-DIMM memory. As you’d expect, AMD Ryzen 4000 series mobile CPUs based gaming notebooks looks to be a better choice than Intel mobile CPU offerings. It is just held behind due to the understandable delay.
This and next month you're going to see many more Ryzen powered laptops become available including a few Radeon powered ones as well. COVID 19 caused some unexpected delays
