    That's for those lucky enough to get hold of Renoir, rare as rocking horse dung at the moment.

    NB I do own an Renoir Ideapad 5 14 and grabbed it while you could still customise it.

            Considering I was talking about an Ideapad 5 it's fairly safe to assume that I was referring to the laptop CPUs. In fact my memory failed me, Renoir laptop CPUs were actually launched in January https://en.wikichip.org/wiki/amd/cores/renoir
