Gaming laptops have been a focus point for an increasing number of laptop makers as these systems are a growth market and enjoy nice margins. The price of gaming laptops is pretty high but they may get cheaper in the near-future as three different OEMs are planning to launch systems with AMD's 12nm Ryzen CPU in combination with NVIDIA Turing-based graphics.

WCCF Tech heard there will be options for as low as $1,099 for models with the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti:
The reason behind the pricing decline is simple, AMD’s 12nm Ryzen mobility series is a cheaper alternative to Intel’s mobility lineup and this allows for more flexibility while allocating budget to the GPU. AMD is providing all manufacturers (with the popular exception of MSI, as they refuse to consider AMD on account of their relationship with Nvidia) with the ability to pair NVIDIA’s GTX 1660 Ti and RTX 2060 GPUs with its Ryzen mobility processors at a reduced cost and an accelerated launch period.

  • The expected MSRP that these OEMs will be offering for an AMD Ryzen 3rd Gen mobility CPU and GTX 1660 Ti combo will start from $1099.
  • The expected MSRP for an AMD Ryzen 3rd Gen mobility CPU and an RTX 2060 will be $1299.
