      Is this any more open than Intel?
      Or they still have their binary, proprietary AGESA and AMD Platform Security Processor (PSP) ?

      Intel seems like a better choice, you get an integrated GPU and high quality open source GPU drivers, and Intel are better at early getting out support before launch day. I think AMD have better performance, but Intel might still be a better choice for consumers on Linux.

      AMD needs get serious about being open for real.
