[Specs, Info and Prices] List of all laptops with NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 / 3070 Max-Q (Updated: November 2021)

The 2021 Ampere GPUs by NVIDIA are now dominating the market, and there are lots of interesting devices equipped with them. As always, we want to make your choice easier, so we decided to make a detailed article with all the laptops sporting the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070.

Lately, NVIDIA began releasing GPUs with the same name but different TGPs, and sometimes the performance deviations are huge. As you know, right after getting our hands on the notebooks, we share with you the exact variant of the components used and, of course, their performance. In the list below, we’ll organize them as presented by their manufacturers, but we’ll update the article as soon we receive the models in our laboratory.

Acer Nitro 5 (AN517-41)

Acer Nitro 5 is equipped with Ryzen 5000 (Cezanne) processors and up to GeForce RTX 3080 GPU. It has configurations with several different display panels, the fastest of which is a mind-blowing 360 Hz IPS with a Full HD resolution. However, the best option in our opinion is the QHD 165 Hz variant – the refresh rate is more than enough for smooth gaming, the image will be very sharp, thanks to the 1440p resolution, plus Acer claims that it covers 100% of the sRGB color space.

Nitro 5 (AN517-41) also features Acer’s Coolboost technology with four exhaust vents for cooling the internals. In terms of connectivity, Wi-Fi 6 and Killer E2600 LAN will take care of your low-latency gaming sessions, while Bluetooth 5.0 will ensure that you’ll be able to easily connect your headset gear.

ASUS ROG Strix Scar 17 G733

Another ASUS device with mouthwatering specs is the ASUS ROG Strix Scar 17 G733. It features almost the same design as its sibling – the ASUS ROG Strix G17 (G713). This model definitely brings more bumped hardware options like NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 and GeForce RTX 3070. In terms of CPU power, you can go as high as AMD Ryzen 9 5900HX, and for the ones that don’t need so much power – ASUS offers more Zen 3 CPU variants.

As always, the typical ROG design is here with all its fancy RGB extras. In terms of display, you can choose among three high refresh rate panels – starting with a 165Hz model and you can even get it with a 360Hz display. The latter looks like a solid option for the hardcore gamers that play mostly online shooters.

ASUS ROG Strix G17 (G713)

ASUS ROG Strix G17 comes with several processor options from the Ryzen 5000 (Cezanne) family. The ROG Strix series is the less powerful models of the Strix Scar series, and because of that, this model features the less powerful RTX 3000-series GPUs. Gone is the RTX 3080 and in its place, you get to choose between the RTX 3070 and RTX 3060.

Being a ROG device, you get an aggressive design, with RGB and all the bells and whistles. Display-wise you get to choose between two 17.3-inch Full HD IPS panels with either a 144Hz or 300Hz refresh rate, and one 1440p IPS screen with a 165Hz which should all provide an unforgettable gaming experience, especially in FPS titles.

ASUS ROG Strix Scar 15 G533

The next one is the ASUS ROG Strix Scar 15 G533 which is almost like a 15″ version of the ASUS ROG Strix Scar 17 G733. No surprises here, the latest high-end hardware can be fitted in the Scar 15 G533. The GeForce RTX 3080 is the top-end graphics card option (and the most expensive one as well, at least for now), further down the road you can see the GeForce RTX 3070 and GeForce RTX 3060 that should provide a decent gaming experience too.

As for the CPUs – you can pick a device with either of two 45W AMD Zen 3 processors – the AMD Ryzen 9 5900HX and the AMD Ryzen 7 5800H. If you prefer something more battery-friendly, the AMD Ryzen 7 5800HS is a 35W Zen 3 chip that still packs a lot of power. The design of this machine follows the ASUS latest 2021 trend – aggressiveness, RGBs, and super-thin bezels.

ASUS ROG Strix G15 (G513)

A step down, and we can find the ASUS ROG Strix G15 (G513). This ASUS device offers video card variants like the GeForce RTX 3070 and 3060 – no RTX 3080 for this series but the end-price of this machine probably will be more pleasant.

The machine comes with a 272mm profile that seems fine for a gaming device that houses powerful hardware. The display options are no different than the other abovementioned Strix devices – you can choose between some fast 144 Hz and 300Hz options, and there is a 1440p panel for people that need more workspace.

Some other standard specs – USB 3.2 Gen 2 (Type-C) port, Wi-Fi 802.11ax, and Bluetooth 5.1.

ASUS ROG Zephyrus G15 GA503

If you prefer something with a more clean look, the ASUS ROG Zephyrus G15 GA503 is characterizing by a neat design and slimmer profile compared to its bigger gaming sibling. Speaking of profile height, 20 mm sound good, especially for a device that can be configured with the latest and greatest AMD Zen 3 processors and NVIDIA Ampere RTX graphics cards. For better portability, the weight is just 1.90 kg – not bad for a gaming laptop.

It seems that the 1440p panels are stepping more and more into the mobile segment and this machine can be configured with a fast high refresh rate 2560×1440 and 1080p panels.

ASUS TUF Gaming Dash F15 (FX516)

We reached the TUF series and more specifically – the ASUS TUF Gaming Dash F15 (FX516). The thing that you’re going to notice is probably the highlighted WASD area which adds a more game-ish look. The weight fits into the 2.00 kg mark and the profile is 20 mm which is more than fine for a machine from this class.

In terms of hardware, like most of the gaming 2020 laptops, you have NVIDIA Ampere GPUs but at the same time this one comes Intel Tiger Lake-H CPUs. Most likely gamers will be happy with the QHD and Full HD displays that feature a high refresh rate too.

The notebook boasts self-cleaning cooling and 5 heat pipes that cool the CPU, GPU, and VRM areas.

ASUS TUF Gaming A15 (FA506, RTX 30)

Here comes another TUF device from ASUS. The ASUS TUF Gaming A15 (FA506, RTX 30) isn’t that different compared to its FX516 cousin. This buddy belongs to the not-so-expensive ASUS laptops series. This means that you can’t find super-powerful beasts like the GeForce RTX 3080 in the configurator. But at the same time, this affordable laptop can be equipped with GPUs like the GeForce RTX 3070 or RTX 3060 that provide enough bang for their buck.

CPU-wise, processors like the AMD Ryzen 7 5800H seem good-enough for a decent gaming experience even for games like Cyberpunk 2077. As for the displays, we have panel options with 140 Hz or 240 Hz refresh rate which sounds decent enough for most gamers.

Visually, the ASUS TUF Gaming A15 is close to the TUF Gaming Dash F15. The profile is 22.8 ~ 24.5 mm which is fine for a notebook that can house a full-blown GeForce RTX 3070. The weight is 2.30 kg and that is okay for a mid-ranger in this price class.

Alienware m17 R4

The next-gen Alienware “spaceships” are presented by the Alienware m17 R4 which is a big 17-incher that can be turned into a desktop replacement. It offers powerful CPUs like the Intel Core i9-10980HK and you can choose a configuration with the most powerful NVIDIA Ampere video cards.

In terms of design, the device looks like a regular alien – ergo, visually there is nothing new but we still like it. We can spot some 4K display panels and fast 360Hz 1080 panels. The profile hits 22 mm which even sounds a bit slim for a laptop that can be bundled with a GeForce RTX 3080. The weight is 2.50 kg and the whole device looks like a decently portable big gaming machine.

Alienware m15 R4

If you don’t need a behemoth like the Alienware m17 R4, its smaller sibling, the Alienware m15 R4 is a normally-sized 15″ gaming device. The extraordinary alien design guaranteed the wow effect (probably) and this smaller alien has a bit more thin profile compared to the bigger one – 20.5 mm. And the whole thing weighs exactly 2.5 kg.

Interestingly, this one comes with an OLED display option (with 4K resolution) for the ones that have bigger wallets. If you want to save some money, the 300Hz panel looks more than enough for everything – gaming, work, movies, etc.

The hardware part – the Intel 10th Gen Comet Lake series processors are on board alongside the GeForce Ampere RTX video cards.

Gigabyte A5

For unpretentious users that care about pure performance, the Gigabyte A5 looks like a possible choice. This laptop offers a lot of bang for the bug without costing a whole fortune – fast AMD Zen 3 CPUs and NVIDIA Ampere video cards.

If the modest AMD Ryzen 5 5600H isn’t enough for you, the Gigabyte A5 can be picked with the AMD Ryzen 7 5800H and AMD Ryzen 9 5900H as well. As for the GPUs, you can choose between a GeForce RTX 3070 and RTX 3060.

Some other specs that are worthy – a USB 3.2 Gen 2 (Type-C) port with display port capabilities, three storage slots (one SATA for regular HDDs and SSDs, and two M.2 slots), Wi-Fi 6, and Bluetooth 5.0

Lenovo Legion 7 (16″)

It looks like in 2020 we’ll see more 16-inchers than ever and the Lenovo Legion 7 is one of these devices and it comes with modern and powerful hardware. It comes with AMD 5000 CPU variants (like the AMD Ryzen 9 5900HX) as well as some new NVIDIA RTX Ampere graphics solutions (including some Max-Q variants).

Aesthetically, this Lenovo machine is a clean-looking laptop with thin bezels and visually exposed hinges. We can see some RGBs here and there (nothing bad in it), a keyboard with a backlight, and a big touchpad which is a nice touch when you don’t have a mouse around you.

Display-wise, things look promising – IPS panel with QHD resolution. As for the dimensions, this is a normally-sized machine that weighs 2.50 kg and it has a 20.1 ~ 23.5 mm profile.

More info and Full specs: Lenovo Legion 7 (16″) series

Lenovo Legion 5 Pro (16″)

Just like its relative, the Lenovo Legion 5 Pro (16″) is a gaming laptop that interestingly-sized 16″ QHD 1440p display and decent hardware under the hood.

Speaking of which, you can get this one with fast Ryzen 5000 (Cezanne) processors and with the latest NVIDIA RTX GPUs like the GeForce RTX 3060. Most of the ports of this device are placed on the backside which is good for better cable management (and your desk probably will look neat as well).

The Legion 5 Pro (16″) looks good in both white and black colors the dimensions are okay for a powerful laptop – 2.45 kg and 21.7 ~ 26.8 mm profile.

MSI GE66 Raider

If you like the MSI GE76 Raider but it’s too big for your needs, there is a 15.6″ alternative – the MSI GE66 Raider. This laptop can be bundled with one of the latest and greatest CPU and GPU options from Intel and NVIDIA. Being a smaller sibling of the GE76 Raider, the GE66 Raider comes with a 15.6″ display, and just like the bigger model, there is a 300Hz 1080p panel that will cost you extra money. If you need something more modest, the base unit has a 144 Hz refresh rate and probably it’ll do the job for most people.

The other specs are no different than the ones that we saw on the 17.3″ sibling – a SteelSeries with RGB backlight, Wi-Fi 6, and Bluetooth 5.1. We are happy to see that the big 99.9 Whr battery is still here – probably it’ll last even more with this laptop because of the smaller screen.

MSI GP76 Leopard (10UHx / 10UGx / 10UEx)

The MSI GP76 Leopard is a device that offers some similar specs compared to the more expensive GE76 Raider series, but expectedly there are some cuts here and there. It’s not a surprise that the design is not that different than the bigger model. Even the dimensions are the same – 25.9 mm profile thickness and 2.90 kg weight.

The MSI GP76 Leopard lacks a 4K display option but it offers some decent 1080p panels with a high refresh rate that are suitable for gaming purposes. Speaking of gaming, the SteelSeries per-key RGB backlight is on board while the battery capacity is reduced to 65 Whr to keep the end price down.

The Cooler Boost 5.0 cooling solution is represented by two fans and up to 6 heat pipes.

MSI GP66 Leopard (10UHx / 10UGx / 10UEx)

The MSI GP66 Leopard is almost the same device as the MSI GP76 Leopard but with a 15.6 display. The Intel 10th Gen Comet Lake CPUs are available for configuring alongside NVIDIA Ampere RTX graphics cards (full-blown and Max-Q variants).

As we said, this laptop comes with 15.6″ panel options that feature high refresh rate variants. The dimensions of this machine are typical for a laptop of this caliber – 23.4 mm profile and 2.38 kg. The other specs are no different than the bigger sibling – SteelSeries keyboard, 65 Whr battery, Cooler Boost 5.0 cooling, Wi-Fi 6, and Bluetooth 5.1.

MSI GS66 Stealth

For the ones who don’t need all the bangs and whistles of the expensive laptops, the MSI GS66 Stealth is one of the possible options out there.

For the not-so-big price, it can be configured with decent hardware like the Intel Core i9-10980HK and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 which means an overclockable 10th Gen Comet Lake processor and NVIDIA Ampere GPU with ray-tracing capabilities.

At the same time, this is a thin and light device (for a gaming laptop) – with its 18mm thickness and 2.10 kg weight, this device is definitely a portable and powerful machine.

Razer Blade 15 (2021)

The 2021 version of Razer Blade 15 is a decently-sized device. This notebook can be configured with a GeForce RTX 3060 or RTX 3070 but its profile is as thin as 19.9 mm. The weight is on the low side too – 2.09 kg so if you travel a lot but you want to have a gaming laptop fitted in your backpack, the Razer Blade 15 is one of the possible options.

As for the CPUs, there are no surprises here. We have 10th gen Intel Comet Lake-H processors like the Intel Core i7-10750H which is fine for GPUs like GeForce RTX 3070 and RTX 3060.

Display-wise, you can pick this notebook with a 1080p or 1440p panel – both come with high refresh rates.

Some additional extras – a backlit keyboard, Wi-Fi 6, and Bluetooth 5.1, a USB Type-C port, and an HDMI 2.1 port.

Razer Blade 15 Advanced (2021)

The Razer Blade 15 Advanced truly deserves its name because at least on paper, it’s a very impressive device. The most noticeable pro is the profile – just 17 mm. And this thing can house a full-blown video card like the GeForce RTX 3070 and RTX 3080. The weight looks good too because for a powerful device 2.14 kg isn’t too much.

For CPUs, you can choose between 6-core and 8-core Intel 10th gen processors like the Intel Core i7-10875H. This laptop impresses with its display options too – a 360 Hz 1080p panel, there is a QHD variant, and a 4K OLED display for people with bigger wallets.

Razer has equipped this notebook with a Vapor Chamber cooling solution and we are curious to see how this thing will perform with an RTX 3070 or RTX 3080 under the hood. The keyboard is a per-key RGB Razer Chroma unit.

Razer Blade Pro 17 (2021)

A thin 17.3″ laptop – this is what best describes the Razer Blade Pro 17 (2021). This Razer laptop has a profile of just 19.9 mm which is definitely on the thin side. The weight is 2.75 kg – nothing special but it’s fine for such a big notebook.

This device can be equipped with fast 8-core CPUs like the Intel Core i7-10875H. In addition, for GPUs, you can pick either of these three – the GeForce RTX 3060, RTX 3070, and RTX 3080. When it comes to displays, gamers can be happy because there is a 1080p panel with a 360 Hz refresh rate and for those who prefer more working space there are 1440p and 4K options.

We can spot some default options like an SD card reader, a 2500 Mbit/s Ethernet port, a backlit keyboard, and for connectivity – Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.2.
