    It is exist actually, it called APU!! the Raven Ridge use Zen architecture.

      Couldn't be more simple. Since he is using a TV, a simple P2>RCA or P2>P2 cable to connect the mobo audio to the TV will do the trick.

        Blah, my conclusion was that Mrs Ross got F square @ 1:40



        To get something out of the box, people just need to think out of the box a bit i guess

          Does AMD have anything modern planned in the sub-40€ range like half a RX 550? Such an option seems to be sorely missing for the people who'd like 6 or 8 core Ryzen performance but have no need for a full gaming GPU. All I see there are 5450s (and relabels) that are over five year old 40nm things.

            Yeah, a modern successor to the R5 230 - cheap, TDP bellow 20W - would be nice.

              Looking back they just don't sell cards like that retail. Honestly, $170 for a 570 at MSRP is great value for money. It might be really expensive for just display driving, but it will age well - Michael talks about how older cards can't handle his 4k panel, whereas a 570 can drive 3 4k panels easily.

                I think we are many that waits for AMD APU.
                I hope it's not to far away for laptops.

                  I was thinking the same thing. AMD GPUs only tend to get real power hungry when you're pushing them to their limits, but the wattage gap (compared to a competing nvidia) narrows dramatically once you put realistic loads on them. For example, yhe R9 290 is known to reach 300W during furmark, but struggles to reach 250W during a game, and is even lower when v-sync is on.

                    Nvidia does not work fine apart from missing/incomplete Wayland support.
                    Their X performance is garbage, period. I am using Nvidia myself and could recently compare it to Skylake modesetting driver: No weird performance drops with the Intel when new windows open. The desktop performance of Nvidia with X is actually partially worse than of Windows XP.

                      Yeah... I would've said just use one of the 200 series cards you've got floating around, a 4k composited desktop isn't exactly a high-bar in terms of performance requirements and all the low end cards aren't exactly going to be drawing that much.
