Ripple is a startup gaming laptops industry in Nepal that has now introduced the Nepali market with the first 12th Gen Intel laptops. There are two laptops in the given series – Ripple Nova and Nova Pro. Here, we will dig into the specs, features, availability, and the official price of Ripple Nova in Nepal.
Ripple Nova Overview
Display and Design
The new Ripple Nova sports a 15.6-inch LED display with a 144Hz refresh rate. It has a full HD resolution of 1920×1080-pixels and around the screen, there are aesthetic narrow bezels. Ripple mentions that the up to par pixel density elevates the clarity of the display with a relatively low pixel response time. Also, the bezels create an immersive nature of the display and smoothen the playback.
The weight of the laptop measures 1.91 kg and the dimension is 360.2×243.5×19.9mm. Further, there is a full-sized RGB keyboard for your better experience. The frame is made from aluminum which looks very premium while you use it.
12th Gen Intel H-series CPUs
As mentioned earlier, Ripple Nova is one of the two laptops launched recently in Nepal that comes with 12th Gen Intel processors. There are powerful H-series processors by Intel which makes the laptop very smooth.
Ripple Nova integrates an Intel Core i5-12500H processor. This is a 12 core CPU with four performance cores accompanied by eight efficiency cores. This means it can handle a buck load of work and is already ahead of its competitors.
RTX 30-series GPUs
The 12th Gen Intel CPUs in the new Ripple laptop couples with the latest RTX 30-series graphics processor. Here, the Nova ships with an RTX 3050 Ti processor that has a total graphics power (TGP) of 90W.
RAM and Storage
As per memory, you can have up to 32GB of RAM with the DDR4-3200 memory standard. However, the Pro version has DDR5 RAM clocked at 4800MHz. Likewise, you can buy up to 1TB Solid State Drive. There are two RAM sockets and two M.2 2280 slots for the placement of all memory configurations. Also, replacing the memory components in the device is very easy.
Furthermore, the port collection of the laptop includes two USB 3.1 (Gen.1) Type-A, one USB 2.0, one USB 3.1 (Gen.2) Type C, one HDMI 2.1, one card reader, and finally a mic accompanied by one RJ45. This goes without saying that the laptop has a very nice collection of input/output ports. However, it still lacks the thunderbolt port which would have been a cherry on top.
