    So the same 24 CU chip that Intel put on their multi chip module but with a few CUs fused off? If looks the same size in the photos, and the Intel chip is bound to just use PCIe to interface even within the same chip package.

    No that chip was Polaris with Vegas memory controller, this is full fat Vega.

    How do those compare against nVidia mobile chips. In practice, nVidia chips dominate by market share, amd since there is more to a laptop than just the GPU, and through that alone it is likely that the laptop that is a best match to my requirements will have an nVidia GPU, but I am curious as whether AMD has made any progress on the mobile front.

    Somewhere between 1050 and 1050ti I think.

    It wouldn't really be comparable with anything in the Geforce lineup as these are 'Pro' class GPUs, they'd be more comparable to Quadro or Tesla mobile (are there Tesla mobile chips?).

    so it is 1/3 of normal Vega 64 performance? not impressive. Think even 560x is faster
    The more you live, less you die. More you play, more you die. Isn't it great.

    Shouldn't be. The 560x has the same number of shaders as the 16cu version of this, but not the 20cu version. So that just leaves generational improvements of the Vega cores, improved memory bandwidth and the compact form factor.
