            Here I'm still waiting for a decent APU for my desktop. AMD doesn't even sell highend 4000 series APUs to the public, now we see zen+navi+ddr5 damn son...

            These devices are looking good and with the global gpu shortage I think it will sell quickly.

              Assuming the ram is single channel, for a device this small.

                The APU is a quad-core Zen2 plus 8 core RDNA 2 GPU. A little less power than I was hopping for, but for a portable were battery life is everything, is not bad at all.

                And they at least will try to hold back scalpers a bit. To reserve and buy one (this year at last), you must have a valid Steam account and had made a purchase up to last month. So scalpers creating new accounts are screwed.

                  Arch and KDE Plasma

                  Looks like Valve doesn't read Phoronix Qt FUD

                    What has the size of the device to do with that?
