    ...in a Bestbuy and then I came home and can't find anything about it, it's not even on the Bestbuy website.


    ...anybody got a cool story about this laptop to tell a bro?

    To the best of my knowledge, the ROG Strix GL702ZC is the only Ryzen laptop ASUS is selling.

    Alienware also offer RX470/570 in their machines IIRC

    HP also introduced RX 580 GPUs in the new Omen line

    Ryzen APUs are also coming very soon.

    LOL! That's why I couldn't find such an Asus, ...my memory sucks. ...and I can't find review/benchmarks.

    Asus are also offering AMD laptops, though. Their GL702ZC comes with an 8-core Ryzen 7 1700 and RX 580 4/8GB

    I know. This was all out of curiosity and not even window shopping, much less actual shopping. I chose a 980m 8GB with the thought that it is good enough to run PS4/XB1 ports 30fps+ until there is a PS5/XB2. Since we're nearing the 3rd anniversary of the 980m and almost everything is still running well on V.High/Ultra @ 1080p ...I haven't experienced any real challenge to my assumption about the 980m.

    i'd be interested if it didn't only come with 4gb of VRAM.
