Originally announced in June at the Taipei International Computer Show, ASUS’ ROG Moba 5R is the world’s first gaming laptop to feature Radeon RX 6800M mobile graphics. The laptop has appeared at an overseas retailer with a price equivalent to around $2,100. It comes with a 300 Hz, 1080p, 3 ms IPS display that supports FreeSync Premium. The CPU is factory overlocked but can be overclocked further by the user. Cooling is achieved via dual fans with six heat pipes, four air outlets, and liquid metal rated at 73 W/mk. It supports both AMD SmartShift and Smart Access Memory technologies for increased performance by up to 10 percent.
The RDNA 2 architecture of the AMD Radeon RX 6800M graphics card collection combines ray tracing, computing and traditional effects, which can bring realistic visual effects in games. The graphics card has 40 computing units and a light accelerator, 12 GB of GDDR6 memory, and 96 MB of Infinity Cache. In some games specially optimized for AMD, the RDNA 2 architecture can provide up to two times the performance experience, and advanced energy-saving technology should be applied to the high-performance computing unit, which can increase up to 30 percent at the same energy consumption level.
