Sure, it’s a powerful graphics card, but for just $50 you can have this perfect gaming laptop.

This is probably the best-value RTX 3070-powered gaming laptop we’ve found this year. Not only do you get that high-performance GPU, but it packs in AMD’s octa-core Ryzen 9 5900HS processor and a 1440p QHD screen running at 165Hz. It’s a marked step up in image quality from 1080p and will make the 15-inch screen feel super-crisp.

However, it’s important to remember that GPU pricing is bad everywhere. Our recommendations on how to buy a graphics card have recently focused on putting your money toward full system purchases of a gaming PC or gaming laptop and pursuing the GPU Restock Dragon.

Finding a card at MSRP alone is a very difficult task, especially on any of the more affordable versions of the latest AMD and Nvidia graphics cards, which sadly makes this sub-MSRP ASRock RX 6900 XT a bargain.

Just a tad too expensive.
