Which one is better for Content Creation?
1. ASUS ROG Strix G15 Ryzen 7 Octa Core 6800H - (16 GB/1 TB SSD/Windows 11 Home/4 GB Graphics/NVIDIA GeForce RTX RTX 3050) G513RC-HN083W Gaming Laptop (15.6 Inch, Eclipse Gray, 2.10 Kg) Link
2. ASUS ROG Strix G15 Ryzen 9 Octa Core 5900HX - (16 GB/1 TB SSD/Windows 10 Home/6 GB Graphics/NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060) G513QM-HQ403TS Gaming Laptop (15.6 inch, Eclipse Gray, 2.30 kg, With MS Office)? Link
R9 5900HX is barely 10% faster than R7 5800H, also depends on chassis where it is used. With 1 lakh budget, I'll pick HP Omen with R7 5800H + 3060 for content creation for 110k or so. Some apps like Davinci resolve & Premier pro are dependent on GPU as well, so a 3060 vs 3050 is a bigger gap than R7 5800H vs R9 5900HX vs R7 6800H (don't get me wrong, CPU is still pulling the majority of the weight).

Maybe, just maybe, an i7 12700H + 3050 with a good cooling system might outperform Ryzen for content creation, but no data to back it up. So R7 5800H + 3060 is a very safe choice. Not many R7 6800H reviews out there, but generally expect like 10% uplift over 5800H.

Also, the expensive G15 has a good QHD panel, but cheaper one has a 45% NTSC coverage 1080p panel, bad for content creation. You need at least 72% NTSC panel, which is present on Omen:

It wud be minimal use like only for playing video on chrome(when not using vm) or watching Movie in vlc. 0 Gaming or graphic intensive work is to be done.

Any estimate percentage for loss in performance??

It only has integrated gfx. So hope issues like video stuttering will not arise.
I think it is around 20-30% performance loss strictly in gaming.

I have a asus vivobook laptop(M509DA to be exact). It has Ryzen 5 3500U processor. It comes with 4GB soldered ram and 4gb Stick for a total of 8gb ram. Now I am thinking of increasing ram on it.
So my question is if I remove the 4GB stick and add 8GB or 16GB ram stick, Will I lose dual channel benefit as it will become (4+16)(total 20Gb ram) Combination.

If I lose it, what will be the impact on performance? Will it have severe impact?

I want to use it for VMs and less ram is causing issue. I cant upgrade to a better laptop for next 1.5 years so will have to do with this.

In intel it's called flex mem if my memory serves me right. Your 4+4G will run in dual channel but the rest of the 4/12G ( the remaining part ) will run in single channel. What does AMD call this I don't know but AMD do have this ie support for hybrid dual channel.

Game performance will hit but since you are not into gaming it does not matter so getting more ram may be beneficial for you if you are only into productivity software.

For non-gaming tasks, it is not a concern to have like 12GB RAM or 24GB RAM.

Below one is just an extreme example:

12GB dont (1).png

Here 8GB & 16GB are in dual channel.

Feel Pain.
Considering only gaming performance is getting hit, I do not have any problem with that.

Basically I need memory for VMs. Additionally I use VScode and maybe Android studio in future . As per internet android studio does not require much graphics so I think I will be okay with it.

Thanks @omega44-xt @whitestar_999 @topgear for your help.

Depends on usage, laptop chassis & other specs. Assuming same chassis running the CPU at 45W (usual case), first option is the best as dGPU is a big advantage + Ryzen is more efficient.

I mean, I will prefer a compact size for multimedia laptops.

I think both HP & Lenovo 15" entry-level laptops with R5 5500U have TN panels.
Shouldn't it be the opposite? For multimedia, bigger screen is usually the better option for most.

Yeah nowadays I won't suggest anyone to buy a laptop with TN panel though I thought many models from HP even ~40k price rane come with SVA panel(no IPS but still better than TN).

14" vs 15.6" is not a very big increase for screen estate IMO but for footprint it is. I will prefer a smaller more portable laptop over bigger ones for non-performance tasks. I like the size of my 13.3" office laptop.

I actually find 14" screen noticeably smaller than 15.6" but then I on an avg avoid all small screens(incl mobile) for long duration watching of multimedia content.
