It seems like, Asus is reportedly working on a new gaming laptop under the arm of its ROG product family, the world’s first to integrate memory AMD 3D Virtual Cache thanks to the introduction of a new processor among those in red that has not yet been announced: the Ryzen 9 7945HX3D. Let’s see what it has in store for us.
First, we must inform you that this information is currently classified as rumor, and therefore the information is not entirely reliable. However, the media around the world consider it good and publish it without even classifying it as such, but we prefer to be cautious just in case.
AMD 3D V-Cache memory is coming to laptops
The laptop in question is a ASUS ROG STRIX SCAR 17and more precisely the model “G733PYV-LL046W”, which has already been listed in various online retail stores, where we can even see its selling price (approximately 4.520$It’s definitely not cheap. Although ASUS and AMD have not officially presented this laptop, in the published specifications we find some rather interesting data, such as the fact that it incorporates 128 MB of L3 cache, something characteristic of AMD X3D processors.
The first announcements indicate that this Scar 17 model will be a gaming laptop with a 17-inch screen, equipped with 32 GB of RAM and a dedicated NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 graphics card, combined with the already mentioned AMD Ryzen 9 7945HX3D processor, a fact that would make this laptop one of the most powerful on the market (and it can, for what it costs).
But let’s talk a bit more about the processor, because it hasn’t been announced or listed. According to the published specifications, the processor has 128 MB of L3 cache thanks to AMD 3D V-Cache memory, as we have already mentioned; Other than that, it’s a Zen 4 architecture Ryzen 9 CPU with a total of 16 cores, and more interestingly, it’s a laptop-mounted desktop PC CPU.
We’ve seen in the past that AMD’s X3D processors bring substantial improvements in games, thanks in part to that extra cache, but we’ll have to see how it performs on this laptop as it obviously can’t have the same TDP as its desktop counterpart due to the cooling system (remember this is an ROG STRIX SCAR series laptop so it’s not an outlier like the ones we’ve seen in the past from other manufacturers… we mean huge laptops and they have rather little laptop).
From there, we can only wait to see what happens and if AMD or ASUS make an official announcement about it. In any case, for users, it is excellent news that laptops of this nature are starting to be manufactured because, although they are very expensive, they would be ideal for people who want to play to the maximum anywhere, and for whom it is better to have a laptop than a desktop PC which costs much more to move around.
