You've seen the results of our numerous tests of Intel 10th-gen Core laptops as well as for AMD models using Ryzen 4000 CPUs. Comparing them has been somewhat tricky however. Today's test is an exciting one for that same reason. XMG has provided us both Ryzen Mobile 4000 and Intel laptops... using the same design and chassis!
3Dfx's Voodoo and Voodoo2 graphics are widely credited with jump-starting 3D gaming and revolutionizing computer graphics nearly overnight. The 3D landscape in 1996 favored S3 Graphics with around 50% of the market.

Timing for buying a new laptop right now is as good as it possibly gets. Intel's 10th-gen chips have found their way into most machines and even AMD's Ryzen 4000 CPU is making a solid appearance, we only wish it was more widely available. From $700 to $7,000 and covering multiple use cases, here are our favorite laptops on the market.
Cyrix, Motorola, IBM or VIA?
