AMD’s first Ryzen-powered laptop is going to come from Asus. The device, being launched under the Republic of Gamers (ROG) banner, is going to be announced at Computex 2017. Asus posted a teaser, shows the circular, orange Ryzen logo, with an ROG branded laptop at the center.
AMD had announced some days ago that Ryzen-powered laptops would be making their way to market soon, and it seems it’s going to be sooner than later. It’s unclear which processor Asus is going to use on its new laptop, although the ROG line is usually reserved for high-end gaming machines.
According to recent announcements, AMD’s Ryzen Raven Ridge APUs is going to be used alongside the company’s upcoming Vega GPUs, on laptops in the third quarter. The launch of Asus’s new ROG notebook would also signal the return of AMD to high-end laptop segments. The Ryzen line itself brought the company back in contention with Intel, where it has been lagging for a while.
AMD’s recent announcements suggest that the company has quite a few announcements scheduled for 2017, which range from notebooks to servers.
