AMD Laptops and PCs @ PAX Australia 2018
If you've been following the channel for a while, you may have noticed an absence of AMD based laptop coverage. Trust me I've been trying to get my hands on any for review, but getting AMD review unit seems pretty tricky here in Australia – maybe I'm just unlucky, but I haven't been able to get any so far. So I was quite interested to take a look at some over at AMD's pax booth. First up we had the lenovo y50 a laptop featuring the AMD Verizon 320 200. You CPU with Radeon, 3 graphics and granted it wasn't running any particular graphically demanding games. Overall, it looked like quite a nice and portable laptop lenovo. Unfortunately, one of the big brands I still haven't been able to get any review units from so I'm, not sure if we'll ever see a detailed review on this one in the future. Next up was the Acer nitro 5, and this one was a bit more powerful running an AMD Rison. 5 2500. You CPU with Radeon rx, 5, 6 DX graphics. Many of you have asked me to review the Nitro 5 and I've been trying to get my hands on one for months now, you'll be happy to know. Why should finally have one coming in the next few weeks if everything goes to plan, although I'm not sure if I'll be getting an AMD based unit or not, following on from that was the azuz x5 70s ed d laptop, which was again more powerful still featuring An AMD Rison, 720 700, you CPU with Radeon Vega, 10 graphics.
I hadn't actually heard of this model before so. I'Ll need to find out. If a seuss have one available, I could borrow in terms of design. It looked similar to a Seuss's top series of laptops. Like the FX 504 or FX 505, and despite having the best specs of the laptops present, it only had rocket League open for demo, which, as expected, played well. The last left up. One display was the HP Envy 360, which had an AMD Rison 2500. You CPU with Radeon Vega, 8 graphics, as per the name. The screen can be flipped around 360 degrees and used in tablet mode like lenovo. The HP is, unfortunately another company. I have no contacts with so we'll probably be unlikely that I'll be able to cover this laptop in the future. Unless perhaps AMD is able to loan me one of theirs other than laptops. There was quite a bit going on. The AMD booth was quite large and there were heaps of gaming PC's with AMD rice and CPUs and Rayong graphics set up for playing on other than the custom stuff. There was also a dell inspiron gaming, pc i've, previously reviewed the Intel and NVIDIA version of this model, but it's also available in an AMD and Radeon configuration as well alien wares area 51. Pc was also here and it's, been upgraded to make use of the latest thread. Ripper 2950 X CPU, so that thing should make quite a powerful workstation.
Hopefully in the future. I can actually get some AMD laptops in for review as a lot of you've been asking to see detailed reviews. Unfortunately, so far it's been a bit difficult to borrow any, but for what I've seen they performed well enough on the show floor, that's it for my pax Australia, 2018 coverage.
