XMG announces gaming laptop with AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D

AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D is undoubtedly the “King of PC Gaming”. because of the large cache. It can match the performance of the latest Zen 4 CPUs and, in some cases, even outperform gaming. Additionally, the Ryzen 7 5800X3D is also being made available in a laptop form factor for the first time since launch.

The Ryzen 7 5800X3D is offered by XMG as a programmable CPU in its Apex 15 Max laptop, effectively serving as a desktop replacement. With this kind of machine, mobility and especially battery life is wasted, although it is not really an anvil: it measures 361 x 258 x 32.5 mm and weighs 2.6 kg.
It’s huge by today’s standards, but the size is decent considering it’s a desktop computer packed into a laptop chassis.

Anyway, the standout here is the Ryzen 7 5800X3D. What makes the Ryzen 7 5800X3D so extraordinary is the inclusion of 64MB of stacked 3D V cache on top of 32MB of standard 2D L3 cache. As a result, the chip has 96 MB L3 cache. Other features include an 8-core/16-wire design with a base speed of 3.4GHz and a maximum boost clock of 4.5GHz.

The GPU options are quite limited, with only the GeForce RTX 3060 (6GB GDDR6) and GeForce RTX 3070 (8GB GDDR6) available in mobile form.

The Apex 15 Max comes standard with 16GB (2x8GB) DDR4-3200 memory, which can be downgraded to a single 8GB module or upgraded to 32GB or 64GB DDR4 memory. The XMG has two M.2 slots for SSDs with capacities between 500 GB and 4 TB, plus a 3.5-inch hard drive bay.

In addition to the high refresh rate of 240 Hz and the 15.6-inch 1080p display, this laptop features a number of I/O ports on the back and sides, as well as wireless Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.2 connection. The Apex 15 Max is currently available for £1,379 in the UK.
