    Let's hope it gets 8GB as well, and maybe a larger storage given the price reductions in the past year.

    How many Vega cores are active on that APU however? I know AMD has a 2C4T with Vega 3 SKU already, but maybe this is slightly custom (6CU from 2300U, 2C from 2200U).

    The spec at Indiegogo lists 8GB dual channel RAM. The APU listed there is A10-9630P. I assume that the specs in the news item are earlier specs.

    I think it's unlikely to have anything more than 3 CU. Still, an Athlon 200GE can beat the A12-9800 quite soundly in many games (though it loses in others), so even with 3 CUs it should be an upgrade.

    Now you've got me wanting to put a Vega64 inside a ZX Spectrum case.

    Just to see whether the plastic is thermosetting or thermoplastic.... i.e. will it burn or will it melt?
