    Fingers crossed they don't get hobbled by hard drives like all the previous AMD laptops. Looks good from the 3 samples above!

    Looks to have potential but it's battery life I'm more interested in when it comes to a laptop/tablet these days if I'm honest. Hopefully they'll live up to their claims.

    Likewise lets hope these systems ship with 2 sticks of memory for dual channel operation. I've owned a two AMD Laptops in the past. Both came with 1x4GB of DDR3 and it crippled the performance in games.

    Really can't wait until these hit the shelves. Hope you can get one for something approaching £700.

    I was about to push the button on an Intel+nVidia laptop combo.. will wait a bit to see if decent business laptops come out with these new chips.

    Re: AMD announces Ryzen 7 mobile APUs with Vega Graphics

    Lenovo appears to use Single channel RAM... strange choice, esp. with a UHD display.

    Looking at the AT and NBC articles,only two of the three initial models have dual channel RAM:

    https://www.notebookcheck.net/AMD-Ry....260136.0.html

    However,those two models also apparently ship with single channel RAM in the Intel versions.

    Re: AMD announces Ryzen 7 mobile APUs with Vega Graphics

    Would like to see these benchmarked against the MX150 from Nvidia. I was seriously considering getting an ultraportable with one of those in it for a good compromise between work and play. But they are like £900 at the cheapest unless you import the Xioami Mi Air from Gearbeast at £615. Personally I'm not prepared to risk that much money.

    They actually look like good buys considering the CPU and GPU performance that these new puppies have.

    Re: AMD announces Ryzen 7 mobile APUs with Vega Graphics

    You can check it on notebookcheck.net, they have benchmarks with MX150 and others. Performance is 10-20% less but in the same ballpark as the mx150, for a few dollars less.

    Single channel isn't a big problem, more important for me to get four real cores, 16gb RAM and a little bit of hardware GPU acceleration.

    Re: AMD announces Ryzen 7 mobile APUs with Vega Graphics

    So are these zen+ cores, going by the 2XXX branding?

    Arstechnica got a different slide pack that included a comparison with the 950M:
    https://arstechnica.com/gadgets/2017...out-the-water/

    Based on pure compute (clock speed * core count), the 950M and MX150 are essentially the same - so the 2700U alone matches an intel CPU paired with a decent nvidia GPU

    Oddly enough, arstechnica's slide pack claimed 12W maximum TDP-down consumption whereas hexus & anandtech say 9W

    If anything I'd say using single channel is what you want in a notebook and other low power devices, unless you're doing tasks that are pushing large amounts of data around you're probably better off as it lowers latency and power draw.
