All gaming laptops coming in 2022 with the latest Intel, AMD and Nvidia technologies
As is generally the case with CES, there is an abundance of gaming laptops slated for release in early and mid-2022 that have at least two of the following characteristics in common: They have Intel processors. 12th Generation H-series, or they support AMD’s Ryzen 6000 processors and Nvidia’s new RTX 3070 Ti or RTX 3080 Ti graphics chips. Additionally, many of them will also support 4800MHz DDR5 RAM. Now is a great time to buy a laptop because these seem to be faster than ever.
There are always some outliers that we won’t catch, and we’ll be making more passes about them during the week, but there are currently well over a dozen laptops coming up that have a combination. of these components. We’ve covered the biggest announcements from CES 2022 individually, but for others we haven’t covered elsewhere, get your hands on some of the biggest names in wearable computing for the next few months.
Predator Triton 500 SE: Acer’s flagship machine for CES 2022 supports up to Intel Core i9-12900HK processor and up to Nvidia’s new RTX 3080 Ti graphics chip. It can hold up to 32 GB of DDR5 RAM clocked at an impressive 5200 MHz. It supports up to 2TB of PCIe 4.0 storage.
Nitro 5: This model can be configured with the latest Ryzen 6000 processors from AMD or 12th Generation Intel Core i7-12700H processors, and up to Nvidia’s RTX 3070 Ti.

ROG Zephyrus Duo 16: This is one of the weirdest and most powerful laptops from Asus. It has two displays (one with a traditional 16-inch 16:10 aspect ratio and the other with a 14.1-inch half-height touchscreen), and it can be configured with the Ryzen processor. AMD 9 6900HX and Nvidia’s RTX 3080 Ti graphics card. chip at the higher end. This model has two user-accessible M.2 PCIe 4.0 slots, each supporting up to 2TB with RAID 0.
Razer 14 blade: Supports up to AMD Ryzen 9 6900HX processor and up to Nvidia RTX 3080 Ti. It achieves 16GB of DDR5 RAM, although its 1TB NVMe SSD is replaceable.
Razer Blade 15 and Blade 17: Supports up to Intel Core i9-12900HK and Nvidia RTX 3080 Ti. Both support up to 64GB of DDR5 RAM, and their two M.2 slots each support up to 2TB of NVMe storage.
Alienware X14, X15 and X17: Supports up to Intel Core i7-12900H (Core i9-12900HK in X17) and up to Nvidia RTX 3080 Ti. The X14 and X15 can be configured with up to 32 GB of DDR5 RAM clocked at 5200 MHz, although they are soldered in. The X17 supports up to 32GB of DDR5 RAM clocked at a slower 4800 MHz clock speed, although they are replaceable. In terms of storage, the X14 has a single M.2 slot that supports up to 2TB, while Alienware offers single or dual storage configurations for the X15 and X17, supporting up to 2TB or 4TB NVMe storage, respectively.
Alienware M17 R5 Ryzen Edition: Supports up to AMD Ryzen 9 6980HX processor and up to AMD Radeon RX 6850M XT graphics card. Alternatively, it can host up to Nvidia’s RTX 3080 Ti. In terms of RAM, this model supports up to 64 GB of replaceable dual-channel DDR5 memory clocked at 4800 MHz. It is available in single or dual storage configurations, each supporting up to 4TB of M.2 NVMe storage.
Aero 16 and 17: These creator-focused machines support up to Intel Core i9-12900HK processor and up to Nvidia’s RTX 3080 Ti graphics card. Gigabyte says it can support 4800MHz DDR5 RAM (up to 16GB per channel) and PCIe 4.0 storage, but it hasn’t shared any further details.
Aorus 15 and 17: Both sizes of the high-end Aorus support up to Intel Core i7-12700H and up to Nvidia’s RTX 3080 Ti graphics card. These models will support DDR5 memory and PCIe 4.0 storage. These will support up to 64 GB of DDR5 RAM clocked up to 4800 MHz and there are two PCIe 4.0 M.2 slots.
Aorus 5: This model supports up to Intel Core i7-12700H processor, and in the graphics department it can be configured with up to Nvidia’s RTX 3070. These will support up to 64GB of DDR4 RAM clocked up to 3200MHz and offer two PCIe 4.0 M.2 slots.
Stealth GS77 and GS66: MSI’s revised Stealth gaming laptops support up to the 12th Generation Intel Core i7-12900H processor and up to Nvidia’s RTX 3080 Ti graphics chips. The 15.6-inch GS66 and 17.3-inch GS77 each have two RAM slots and support up to 64 GB of DDR 5 memory clocked at 4800 MHz.
Raider GE76 and GE66: The 15.6-inch GE66 and 17.3-inch GE76 will support up to Intel Core i9-12900HK processor and up to Nvidia’s RTX 3080 Ti graphics card. Since the Raider is thicker than the Stealth, expect better performance here. Similar to the Stealth, the Raider series supports up to 64GB of DDR5 RAM.
Vector GP76 and GP66: This model is similar to the design of the Raider GE but without RGB lighting to give it a more professional look. Like the Raider, it supports Intel’s Core i9-12900HK, although it tops out at the RTX 3080, and the RAM is DDR4 clocked at 3200MHz. Since this one uses parts that are not new, it is fair to expect a slightly cheaper price.
Reticle 17 and 15: While the above MSI models each offer the option of going up to QHD or better, the Crosshair lineup sticks to 1080p panels. This line also uses one of the 12th generation Intel Core i9 processors with up to Nvidia’s RTX 3070 Ti graphics chip. Oh, and be careful of the extreme Rainbow Six: Extraction brand and assorted colors.
Sword and Katana: Although having different names, the MSI sword and katana are similar machines. The sword is available in white, while the Katana is black with two size options (15.6 inches and 17.3 inches). Both support up to the Intel Core i7-12700H processor and up to Nvidia’s RTX 3070 Ti graphics chip.
We will be adding more manufacturers as CES 2022 progresses.
