    Yup, although the RX 580 is cherry picked low voltage silicon and clocks ~ 200MHz (~ 16%) lower than a stock desktop RX 580. Both CPU and GPU have an advertised TDP of 65W,so it's a lot more power hungry than most laptops...

    Just one query though - the article claims there's no choice of CPU, but Amazon are selling the same laptop with the Ryzen 5 1600 as well....?

    In the US there's just one CPU, the Ryzen 7. But the global site mentions both Ryzen 5 and Ryzen 7, as does Amazon UK. Sorry for the confusion.

    You can buy the Asus ROG Strix GL702ZC, as outlined above with 256 GB SSD + 1 TB HDD for £1,449.99 from Amazon UK today.
    Very reasonable.

    I'm pretty sure amazon had this for sale (not preorder) a couple of weeks ago:

    The asus laptop with a full-fat ryzen chip (1700 or 1600) is available for sale. Looks to be quite well priced, the price-competitive laptops amazon brings up are all using the HQ mobile processors and 1060 6GB at best
