AMD hasn't officially announced a Ryzen 9 4900HS, but it's most likely a member of the Ryzen 4000-series (codename Renoir) family of APUs. Renoir chips are based on the Zen 2 microarchitecture and manufactured with TSMC's 7nm FinFET process. The processors natively support DDR4-3200 desktop RAM and LPDDR4-4266 laptop memory standards.

The default TDP (thermal design power) for H-series models is 45W. However, the APUs also feature a configurable TDP range that spans from 35W to 54W. The HS-series, which are exclusive to Asus for the first six months, are specced for 35W.
|Model||Cores / Threads||Base / Boost Clock (GHz)||L3 Cache (MB)||Graphics||CUs||iGPU Clock||TDP (W)|
|AMD Ryzen 9 4900HS*||8 / 16||3.0 / 4.4||8||?||?||?||35|
|AMD Ryzen 7 4800H||8 / 16||2.9 / 4.2||8||AMD Radeon Vega 7 Graphics||7||1,600 MHz||45|

Sadly, the listing doesn't give us any insight on the Ryzen 9 4900H's integrated graphics. The Ryzen 9 series is expected to employ the same Radeon Vega 7 graphics solution seen on the Ryzen 7 series, pointing to seven compute units (CUs). There is also a rumor floating around that the Ryzen 9 series could carry up to eight CUs.
Laptop manufacturers will probably employ the Ryzen 9 series SKUs in their high-end devices, so the integrated graphics shouldn't hold much value. In Asus' case, the company paired the Ryzen 9 4900HS with a Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 Max-Q graphics card, 16GB of memory and a 1TB SSD for storage.
Atlex lists the Asus latest ROG Zephyrus G14 for 9,150 Romanian Leu, which roughly translates to $2,066. The Romanian retailer doesn't say when the gaming laptop will be available.

I knew a 4900HS was coming as AMD has an 8 core 16 threads 4800HS CPU at 15W.Reply
They can easily increase clocks and power consumption for a faster mobile CPU.
They will also release a 4900H with faster base clock and 4.4Ghz boost.
Great! I love seeing the core count increase come to mobile devices. AMD can make serious impact against Intel by upping those core counts.Reply
Now give me a 4800H in a 2-in-1 device. 8-cores would be a great upgrade from my current 4-core machine! And, OEMs, don't screw this up by pairing the AMD CPU with crap components like what happened with the HP Envy x360 15z.
