    Re: AMD Ryzen PRO processors get backing of Dell, HP, and Lenovo

    MyTake: AMD should have incorporated the old time NorthBridge GPU on the motherboard like the old days of Athlon and Core2Duo so that it would not need a PCiE GPU as we wait for Ryzen APU

    One of the reasons that people like Ryzen is that it is both cheaper as a CPU and on the motherboard side. Also, with the number of BIOS fixes needed at launch and other tweaks from AMD, I can't imagine they would really have time to keep on top of a GPU, especially one differently implemented by multiple motherboard vendors.

    Long story short, it was much easier for AMD to just ask us to pick up a £20-30 PCI-E card, and probably easier for us to work with too. People upgrading may have already had a GPU anyway.

    "Today's business PC users require more processing power than ever before to run increasingly demanding applications, to ensure they can multi-task without disruption, and to help protect against security threats,"

    I have to query that, it seems to me that for most business users filling out their office with refurbished Dell Core i3 desktops is more than sufficient.

    Nevertheless relatively inexpensive desktop systems with ECC memory support will curry favour with those users who do need something a bit faster, especially those who want a bit of pep from their system but don't merit a full-blown HEDT/workstation.

    Mobo manufacturers could do that themselves if they thought there'd be any call for it. As it is Dell already delight in pairing APUs with dGPUs that are less powerful than the IGP in the APU, so...

    Since AM4 Ryzen APUs are coming I can't see anyone bothering to attach a GPU to an AM4 board, but with TR having so many spare PCIe lanes I do wonder if someone might stick a basic GPU on an X399 board...

    The PC I'm currently working on is a dual core Pentium E5400.... honestly it's actually not bad until you get to badly coded software (and boy do we have some badly coded software) or websites that are peppered with so many ads that frankly it's just an affront to nature. You can do basic web browsing and office work on a remarkably crap PC these days.

    Well the phrase is a corruption of medieval French, so definitely no curry flavour there.
