Ryzen 3000 might be paired with NVIDIA Turing chip

In upcoming ASUS laptops

According to the latest rumor from Apisak, the upcoming ASUS FX505DU, GU502DU and GU502DV gaming laptops might feature NVIDIA Turing chip. While this isn't such a big surprise, these notebooks might feature an AMD Picasso APUs. This seems like an odd combination but there are several 3DMark reports around.

With the release of its latest Ryzen H-series gaming chips, AMD has finally a fast mobile chip. According to the 3DMark leaks, ASUS' FX505DU and GU502DU will come with AMD Ryzen 5 3550H and Ryzen 7 3750H, respectively. The two Ryzen processors are expected to be based on AMD's Zen+ processor microarchitecture and produced by GlobalFoundries on the 12nm process node.

Based on the leak, both Ryzen 5 3550H and Ryzen 7 3750H come with four cores, eight threads, 6MB of L3 cache and a 35W TDP. The Ryzen 5 chip clocks in at 2.1GHz with a 3.7GHz boost, while the Ryzen 7 chip features a 2.3GHz base clock and 4GHz boost clock. While the first chip sports Vega 10 graphics, the other one employs a Vega 8 chip.

The Ryzen 3000-series APUs are reportedly to be paired with NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 1660Ti. Although the AMD chips come with an integrated graphics, ASUS still prefer pair these CPU with a discrete graphics card. The Vega integrated chip can be used for light gaming, while the discrete graphics card for heavy workload.

This combination is pretty curious and we can't wait to see some real benchmarks.
