the 140w rtx4050 is very nice for 1080p/high settings even in latest games (will struggle with ultra), the 105w version that this laptop has might be a little slower with 2350mhz boost instead of 2600, but it should still do very well. the cpu is great, it's a 6/12+4e, a beast for gaming and everything else really.
imo it's a very nice option for a gaming laptop. first thing I'd do, is try to hit +2500mhz on that gpu with a custom voltage curve in afterburner.
acccording to tpu, the base 50w/1750w version of this card is as powerful as a gtx1070, the 105w/2350mhz should be a lot better. and it has dlss2 and dlss3 if the card struggles.
