All you need for laptop gaming is an 8-core CPU with a 350Ti or better and you'll get solid 1080p performance.
I bought an ASUS TUFF A15 laptop with a 15" monitor for $1099. Prices dipped and now that 17" variant is $999. It's good for 1080p gaming, but I use it for mobile Youtube podcasting.
I've had the Advantage Edition laptop since June. I upgraded to 32GB of faster RAM and did a fresh Windows install when I got it.The Strix G15 Advantage Edition was plagued with major problems for nearly 6 straight months... and there are still some other glitches clinging on for dear-life. Asus needs to fix the inherent sleep issues with external peripherals, like gaming mice & keyboards.
None of the AE goodness is worth a &^%$ if a company like Asus can't get their software/firmware team to execute professionally! These fools can't even keep the Ai (support) app, Armoury Crate and their product support pages straight either...
4 GB shouldn't be sold anymore on gaming laptop, that's the current bare minimum for VRAM usage on any AAA games.
a similarly priced GTX 1660 Ti from last year performs much better than RTX 3050 Ti... that card is a mistake and a quick cash grab that are enabled by people who blindly bought things just because they're new.
AC Valhalla to name a few. the problem isn't the RTX 3050 Ti itself, but the fact it only ships with 4GB of VRAM makes it terribly constrained. if Nvidia at least bothered to ship with 6GB of VRAM, it'd be in a better position.Name a Triple AAA game that requires more than a 3050Ti to run at 1080p.
I'm desperate to hear of one.
And yes, I understand the 3060 and 3070 are ideal because they are faster and offer more VRAM, but once again, I'm not really using this for games as I mentioned. I'm using it mostly for mobile podcasting.
At the pricepoint ($999 or less) it's just fine for the average user.

Sometimes I have to unplug/replug the receiver to get it to recognize my wireless Elecom trackball. That's the one and only problem I've run into.
I haven't found a game it won't run on the 1080p screen with my preferred settings (most options maxed), and I've played several games well on a 4K TV.
Initially it was limited to the driver from Asus, but the next AMD update added support to the regular Adrenalin driver.
Been very happy with it.

you went off rail. I'm not talking about AC games, I'm talking about how 4GB of VRAM are simply not enough for a chip aimed for gaming released in 2021 or later.I stopped playing AC games after the original. I was bored by it. The textbook EA ported gameplay is better in Far Cry games.
