It was a disappointing presentation from AMD during the CES 2021. There was less information on the latest Ryzen 5000H Cezanne processor. We expected more Zen 3 desktop products from AMD, but the OEMs came to the rescue.
Asus has released tons of new Asus ROG Laptops for the consumer market. The latest lineup of the Asus ROG laptop uses the Ryzen 5000H powered mobile devices. The company is pushing a lot of laptop devices for the year 2021.
