Hey guys!
I'm looking into buying a gaming laptop (don't dare scolding me for it, mobility is really important for me, as I travel a lot) and targeted the ASUS ROG STRIX GL502VS (Intel i7-6700HQ + GTX 1070 8GB, 16GB DDR4, $1900 (Hu-EU) ).
I'm looking forward to buy it in March, yet I'd first think about waiting for AMD's releases.
My exact question is: is it worth the wait? Would AMD show off something (probably a ZEN/RYZEN APU) which would beat the build of my targeted beast? Would It get as supported as Intel's CPUs and Nvidia's GPUs?

Thanks for the responses!

Frankly, I would not hold my breath and given the info available, i don't think AMD is going to match, let alone, surpass nVidia in the laptop space. So, i'd go with a 1070 based laptop instead of waiting for anything "potentially" better
