Market being flooded with a ryzen mini PCs, steam deck like handhelds which is proving that TDP isn’t really a big deal in a matter of ryzen vs intel mobile CPUs.
But when it comes to a tablet form factor - Intel, ARM with an apple silicon standing standalone.
Even premium devices like Microsoft surfaces look just like a freaking joke because of a very poor iGPU in compare even to a low tear ryzens.
And oh please don’t tell me about x360 transformer laptops, they do have ryzen on a board, but this things are too huge and weight 1.5kg+. And also often have quite poor or none pen support.
I just want a proper ryzen tablet with pen support so I can install linux on it…
But it seems the only option is to tear down a singleboard miniPC and to make some Frankenstein like abomination.
Also, did anyone saw a ryzen 6000 laptops? Ryzen 7000 already being released, but 6000 ones seems to be as mythical as a yeti.
Isn’t there usually a long lag between the desktop skus and the mobile ones? 7000 desktop chips were just announced but there is no mobile 7000 series lineup is there?
True, but mobile 6000 ryzens were released about a half of the year ago and yet still, there’s just a few top model laptops with a price for 1100-1500+ usd.
Mobile ryzens of previous generations also came with a delay, but as I remember not so huge. Seems just like they don’t care very much about this market.
same as they don’t care about revers-engineering competitor for CUDA cores and compaitable with it API so their GPU could be finally usable for something besides of the gaming
Intel has way more money to throw around to get these done and to help with designing SFF products with intel SKUs.
In some cases Intel has pre made designs for such products. AMD may have good CPUs but they’re still the underdog financially and with regards to resources for external design/partners.
“Just reverse engineer it” is usually something someone who doesn’t understand the legal, financial, and time obligations required for such a thing.
Also, seeing as CUDA isn’t very open I would prefer AMD stick to thing like OpenCL vs Nvidia dictating the GPU landscape. That doesn’t even account for potential legal issues regarding CUDA.
I know history of big tech industry and patent trolling too well to know that no one cares when he really wants to steal something. AMD itself began as a whole steal from the Intel.
Not to say that the most of the technologies companies prefer not to patent, according to patent bureaus of a different countries about 70% of the companies prefer trade secrets instead of a licensing and patents. So if you steal a such peace of an information it’s anyway not protected by the law.
Not to say that AMD gets quite often protection from the governments to keep them on a boat.
Which allows you to do a lot of shady staff.
