In this article, we will be discussing the specs, features, official price, and availability of Ripple Nova and Nova Pro laptops in Nepal. 

Ripple Nova, Nova Pro Overview:

12th Gen Intel H-series CPUs

The main highlight of the upcoming Ripple Nova Series is the 12th Gen Intel processors. Nova and Nova Pro are powerful gaming laptops packing Intel’s latest H-series processors.

To be more precise, Ripple Nova is powered by Intel Core i5-12500H, which is a 12 core CPU with 4 performance cores and 8 efficiency cores. Likewise, Ripple Nova Pro packs the Intel Core i7-12700H processor, which has two additional performance cores than i5-12500H.


RTX 30-series GPUs

Ripple has paired the 12th Intel CPUs on its Nova series gaming laptops with the latest RTX 30-series GPUs. The Nova comes with RTX 3050 Ti with a total graphics power (TGP) of 90W. If you want more power, there is Ripple Nova Pro with RTX 3060 GPU (140W TGP).

RAM and Storage

Base variants of the two laptops under the Ripple Nova series have 8GB of RAM and 256GB SSD. That being said, Ripple Nova Pro comes with the newer DDR5 RAM clocked at 4800MHz. On the other hand, the vanilla Nova sticks to the DDR4-3200 memory standard. 

You can easily upgrade the RAM up to 32GB and storage up to 1TB SSD. For this, the laptops come with two RAM and two M.2 slots.

Design and Design

The two laptops under the Ripple Nova series have a similar design. They even have the same screen size and weigh the same.

That being said, Ripple Nova Pro also has the better display of the two. It sports a 15.6–inch display with a 165Hz refresh rate and QHD resolution. The 2K panel even has 100% sRGB coverage. Thus, we see it appealing to content creators as well.
