    I figured now that "CES" has the info out there on the 5000 series mobile CPUs from AMD we could use a place to chat about it.

    Looks like a good line up:

    But then AMD does this? Why would they not use all the same architecture when the WHOLE point of skipping 4k series naming on the desktop was to limit confusion on what architecture the processors were on:

    If you don't realize that thanks to their usage of the Zen 2 architecture in the 5300u, 5500u, and 5700u the single core performance gain doesn't look impressive over the line up:

    At least for the 5600u and 5800u the single core gain is ~17%.

    Over all I'm excited for the addition of some serious competition in the mobile market. I'm kind of miffed at AMD's decision to keep some Zen 2 CPUs around to take advantage of the unknowning customer...

    I wonder what the real world difference is going to be like between the 5980hx and 5900hx

    Probably nothing, lol. I think AMD was jealous of all of the CPU names Intel had so they just started creating more SKUs.

    Probably, one would hope for better binning on the premium SKU but that would be wishful thinking until we see them in the wild.

    No, maybe with Thunderbolt 4 in the future, but I don't think AMD is chomping at the bit to pay intel money for their spec.

    No USB 4/Thunderbolt 4 mentioned (that would be a headline).

    Because USB 4/Thunderbolt is now 'free', why would they when they're the cough, cough, 'better option'. :rolleyes::D

    Right, and when laptops come with it they will have thunderbolt 4 as well.
