Everybody loves budget gaming laptops and AMD provides some of the best value-for-money devices that you can find on the market. The gaming laptops in this category offer high performance without breaking your bank. They’re primarily for budget gamers looking to buy a gaming device that can play most modern games at 1080p resolution and at a smooth frame rate. Such laptops are mostly powered by an AMD Ryzen Hexa core processor, a discreet GPU with at least 4GB GDDR6 VRAM, and cost less than Rs 70,000.
Lenovo Legion 5
The budget-friendly Lenovo Legion 5 left a mark on the budget gaming community with its strong performance and unmatched build quality. The latter is an area often overlooked in gaming laptops, but Lenovo goes one step further and delivers a solidly built device. In terms of performance, the Lenovo Legion 5 features an AMD Ryzen 5 Hexa core processor paired with an Nvidia GTX 1650 GPU with 4GB GDDR6 VRAM, which should be enough for playing modern games at 1080p resolution in low-medium graphical preset. The laptop also comes with 8GB DDR4 memory, a 256SSD, and 1TB HDD. The SSD and HDD combination enables the user to store frequently accessed files in on the former and rarely accessed large files on the latter. The laptop also has a 15.6-inch FHD display with a 120Hz refresh rate which is a perfect match for an Nvidia GTX 1650 GPU.
Acer Nitro 5
In the budget laptop segment, you can find a lot of gems. The AMD Ryzen powered Acer Nitro 5 is one such gaming laptop. Featuring an AMD Ryzen 5 5600H Hexa Core processor with a 4.2Ghz boost clock, this laptop is an ace when it comes to budget gaming. The laptop also comes with an Nvidia GTX 1650 GPU with 4GB GDDR6 VRAM and a 15.6-inch 1080p FHD display with support for up to 144Hz refresh rate. Meaning you can enjoy your favourite games at an ultra-smooth frame rate, albeit at a low graphical preset. In terms of storage, the laptop gets a 256GB SSD and 1TB HDD combination, which should help you easily store and manage tons of files.
HP Pavilion 15 Gaming
The HP Pavilion 15 gaming laptop costs a bit more than Rs 70,000 but the value it offers is almost unmatched. For starters, it features an AMD Ryzen 5 5600H Hexa Core processor paired with the latest Nvidia RTX 3050 GPU with 4GB GDDR6 VRAM. The advantage of choosing an RTX 3050 over the GTX 1650 gives you access to DLSS and Ray Tracing. Although the Ray Tracing is not feasible on such an entry-level GPU, the DLSS tech gives it a significant performance boost. In terms of RAM and storage, the laptop comes with 8GB DDR4 memory and 512GB SSD storage. The laptop also comes with a 15.6-inch FHD display with a maximum 144hz screen refresh rate support.
HP Victus Gaming 16
We’ve talked about all-AMD gaming laptops before but those are often priced way above most gamers can afford. Thankfully, the HP Victus 16, is one of the all-AMD gaming laptops you can buy on a budget. It does not support the Smart Access Memory feature but it shouldn’t be an issue as the CPU and GPU onboard this gaming device offer great performance. The HP Victus 16 comes with an AMD Ryzen 5 5600H Hexa Core processor combined with a Radeon RX 5500M GPU, which can easily run games at a smooth frame rate in 1080p resolution. One drawback of this device is the lack of a high refresh rate display but the 16-inch screen size is bigger than its competitors in this price range. The laptop comes with 8GB DDR4 memory and 512GB SSD, which should be enough for most of your gaming needs.
Ideapad Gaming 3
Another popular gaming series from Lenovo is the IdeaPad Gaming. It also features some of the best budget gaming laptops offering great performance. The IdeaPad Gaming 3 we’re talking about today is an all-powerful budget gaming laptop thanks to an AMD Ryzen 5 5600H Hexa Core processor, which handles games and other applications quite easily. The IdeaPad Gaming 3 also comes with an Nvidia GTX 1650 discreet GPU with 4GB GDDR6 VRAM, which should be enough to play games at 1080p resolution in a low graphical preset.
