After the recent rumours, Xiaomi has now announced the launch of the 2nd-gen gaming laptop, the Redmi G (2021). The new laptop comes with a starting price tag that undercuts most of the competition, keeping with Redmi’s penchant for affordability.
The Redmi G (2021) is available in two flavors: a model with a GeForce RTX 3050 graphics card and an Intel Core i5-11260H CPU, and another with an RTX 3060 and AMD Ryzen 7 5800H. Both SKUs are equipped with 16 GB of RAM and 512 GB of storage. Most other specs are the same across the two models as well:
16.1-inch, 144 Hz display
Xiaomi’s XiaoAI assistant
DTS X Ultra 3D Sound
There are a few differences, however. The top-spec model with an AMD Ryzen 7 gets better cooling with five copper heat pipes, four air outlets, and dual 12 V fans. It also features a 230 W power adapter versus the Intel model’s 180 W adapter.
The laptop with an RTX 3050 and Core i5-11260H carries an MSRP of US$880 and goes on sale tomorrow. The AMD Ryzen 7 5800H model goes on sale on September 28 with a US$1085 price tag.
