      I am still waiting for the high-end Navi card!
      It makes sense to expect it only if you are going to buy it. In terms of performance, isn't Radeon VII sufficient?

        Way too much in my opinion. It is configurable down to 12w tdp, but that's still twice the tdp of my current desktop, which is three years old. Come on AMD, you're practically forcing me to buy Intel again.

          Buy Intel already. No one cares about your 3 watt TDP issue.

            I already have Intel. My point is that manufacturers should be competing at who burns less power and consumers should be fighting for that. Thumbs up for Microsoft efforts on ARM, since AMD is apparently unwilling to enter this power segment. I wonder why ... Zen2 cores are perfectly fine at 2-3W per core (see Epyc), it seems there are some market(ing) issues here ...

              Sounds like highly up graded Vega trash. I’ve already tried searching for independent bench mark to see what the truth is. Sadly no reviews yet.

                You have no idea what the actual power will be at any given load. Until these chips are seen in shipping machines we really will not know what the power profile is.

                by the way I’m with you on the idea of usable ARM based laptops! However the characteristics of ARM chip under load must be considered too. Actual performance relative to these AMD chips can impact my desire to consider an ARM based laptop. It really looks likeAMD is in a leadership position at the moment.

                  This CES keynote has me very interested in a new laptop this year. However I’m not going all in (trying to resist anyways) until we have reviews indicating that everything is ready. That means no BIOS issues and graphics drivers that work.

                    Still await for AMD Sensor Fusion HUB driver for mobile Raven Ridge and up. Vainly trying to find a patchwork location for testing.

                      Disappointing pricing for the 5600 XT, guess I'll wait until the summer when Nvidia releases Ampere and prices shift down.
