    Ok, so Intel is suggesting a large scale switch to M1 Macbooks ?

      I did go over Intels finding and take it with a large grain of salt. Hardware Unboxed as a reviewer is way more unbiased.
      The review has nothing to do with the issue being discussed. I do understand you're a fan of HW unboxed but it's 100% offtopic here.

        This would appear to simply be a different approach to battery life. Intel follows the "race-to-idle" approach, where the CPU turbos to one of the least efficient operating points to finish a task as fast as possible and return to the lowest power point.

        AMD seems to want the CPU to operate some percentage slower for possibly significantly better energy efficiency (extending battery life, reducing noise, etc.) unless the task is running long enough to suggest a need for that higher performance.

        If AMD's approach doesn't significantly impact the *feel* of responsiveness, I'd put my money on them. Intel's gets them pretty benchmark results for short workloads, but that seems like a silly thing to hyper-optimize for. But it'd be nice to see more data about the energy efficiency: Bring on the benchmarks!

For all of you, I have a parting, sincere, heartfelt suggestion: fuck you, AND your agendas.
            Not sure if some of these words will get "blacklisted" or if we will have a pure whitelist internet in the future

              AMD released the Dali based Athlon 3050e Silver, a 6w stripped down Raven Ridge Zen 1 with a Vega 3 that beats a 4C J4115 Celeron running at 12W.

              Sounds pretty good to me.

                OK, I'll be honest here. Apparently Michael thought danmcgrew was insulting him for using the word "gimps", but that is wrong. He misunderstood.
                danmcgrew was insulting the SJWs who like to replace words for no reason, but Michael took it seriously and broke the article...

                Request to change the name back to Gimps.
