    Would like to replace my XP-13 9343 with a XPS-15 AMD APU version.

    Any info out there about the 400 series chipsets? What will change? The CPUs are supposedly going to be 12nm which will probably add a few hundred MHz but I'm having trouble finding info about what has changed in the chipsets. Do we need to keep waiting to find out, or is anyone aware of such information out there now?

    I was kind of hoping for at least a 6 core/8 thread APU...

    That is all nice and dandy, but please AMD, can you ask your pals at Global Foundries to start making memory chips? The Samsung/Hynix cartel managed to elevate DDR4 prices so high that now 16GB of RAM costs the same as a Ryzen 7 here where I live.
    There's an ongoing ivestigation...
    The question persists: what took them so long?
    And a new question arises (for me, at least): with inflated GPU prices for over a year, when are the GPU manufacturers getting investigated?...

    Just to clear a few things:
    Both Ryzen and Ryzen 2 are based on Zen.
    Ryzen 3 will be based on Zen 2.
    Bottom line: don't confuse Ryzen 2 with Zen 2.

    Rzyen 2 will probably still have the Spectre BUG. But since it's a bug that relies on the hacker having physical access to the machine anyways... meh...

    I know nVidia has their Arm products like Tegra, but in order for them compete with Intel, wouldn't they have to use Intel processors? It seems like they would.
    Intel is also a player in the GPU market even though their current line-up lacks mid to high performance discrete graphics, but they have plans for that in the future, and I think in the early 2020's we will see Intel discrete GPU's take on Nvidia and AMD directly. They hired AMD's Raja Koduri to start up a new graphics division earlier this year. Nvidia has ~80% of that market right now if I'm not mistaken, so it might be in Intel's best interest to hurt Nvidia more than AMD.

    Is it just me, or it seems that for Vega Mobile Discrete, AMD will also benefit of Intel's EMIB instead of the expensive Inter-poser and TSV ?

    To compete with Nvidia's mid-range discrete mobile graphics obviously, which is in the interest of both AMD and Intel. Can't do that with a traditional APU, so this is their solution.

    "AMD has a working 7nm AMD product that is a GPU built for machine learning."
    Is it right to call it a "product" if it's not for sale yet? I would say they have a working device.
