AMD has announced the world's first "Raven Ridge" APU with this notebook being powered by Ryzen 5 CPU cores paired with Vega graphics.

The HP ENVY x360 15-bq101na is this first notebook featuring the Zen CPU cores paired with Vega 8~10 graphics. The HP ENVY x360 15-bq101na is listed as having a Ryzen 5 2500U quad-core processor with 2.0GHz base frequency and 3.6GHz boost frequency. On the graphics side are integrated "AMD Radeon Vega M" graphics. This notebook also has 256GB of NVMe storage, 8GB DDR4-2400 memory, and ships with Windows 10. The power adapter is 45 Watts and at least under Windows is expected to offer up to a ten hour battery life.

More details via this data sheet. Pricing and availability details not yet available. Once more Raven Ridge hardware becomes available, I hope to get access to some for Linux testing. The Raven Ridge testing has been up and coming already within the AMDGPU code the past few cycles: Raven Ridge does require AMDGPU DC support so you'll be looking for a Linux 4.15+ based kernel.
