The Best AMD-powered laptops in India

The Best AMD-powered laptops in India

Team Digit | 21 Oct 2019

AMD’s mobile processors offer the flexibility of seamless gaming performance as well as being frugal with their power consumption. There’s a laptop for every need, so we’ve taken the task of hunting them down for you. Here are the best AMD-powered laptops currently selling in India.

Gaming

Most games use around 4-6 CPU cores and guzzle up as much of the graphics card as you can throw at it. And with RAM, you’d need about 16 GB for practically all AAA-titles. Lastly, a high refresh rate monitor always helps. With these things in mind, here is the best AMD powered gaming laptop, we could find in the Indian market today. 

ASUS TUF Gaming FX505DV 

Part of ASUS’s TUF line up, the ASUS TUF Gaming FX505DV comes with the AMD Ryzen 7 3750H which is a quad-core processor with multithreading and it comes with an RTX 2060 for the graphics card. So you can not only play the latest video games on it but also enjoy hardware accelerated ray tracing in some of the newer games. It even has a 120 Hz high refresh rate display and 16 GB of DDR RAM. 

Since this is a premium gaming laptop, you also have a 512 GB NVMe SSD which is much faster than normal hard drives. And this gaming machine is available at Rs.1,04,990. Here’s the specifications in detail.

Thin-and-light

With thin and light notebooks, the emphasis is obviously on having a low profile while being lightweight. For such uses, the AMD Ryzen U-series processors are best suited given the performance that they provide while consuming less power, without compromising on the battery life.

ASUS VivoBook 15 X512DA

The VivoBook 15 series from ASUS are compact with a really slim 5.7mm bezel giving it an 88% screen-to-body ratio. It’s powered by the AMD Ryzen 3500U which is a quad core processor with multithreading and consumes barely 15 W of power making it last really long. 

The VivoBook sports a 15.6-inch 60Hz anti-glare panel and is only 19.9 centimeters in height with the lid closed. That’s very thin. And it weighs 1.7 KG which is also very light for a 15.6-inch laptop. If you want something with less weight then you’d have to get a 13.3 or 14-inch laptop. Coming to the graphics, it makes use of the AMD Radeon Vega 8 Mobile graphics which is more than enough for a lot of casual games and even esports games.

Convertible

Convertibles or 2-in-1 laptops are in a league of their own. Whether you want a laptop or a tablet, the convertible format does the job for both the requirements. They are definitely thin and light since that’s essential when using the device in the tablet format, and the lid swings all the way around. Moreover, getting a stylus makes your life much easier.
