    I like the idea of 5600M and 5700M in mobile.
    5700M is likely the one to shoot for as AMD could probably easily undervolt the desktop 5700 without actually reducing clocks - but even if they do drop performance by 5-10% from desktop (similar to V56 in Helios 500), then its fine too.

    What I would like to see is quality components with smart/proper execution of cooling that results in a cool and quiet unit which can run both CPU and GPU at maximum indefinitely (think Helios 500 but possibly scaled down a bit to drop the thickness - doesn't need to be as quiet or cool, but similarly so is probably more than doable).

    And of course, better OEM software/BIOS support for their laptops with easy access to internals.

    Doing the math, and figuring 100% scale, if the 3970x was running 3.8 GHz then the 3990x was at 2.9 GHz.

    This in spades.

    All I'm thinking of is the Hackintosh build that smashes the top end Mac Pro with the 3175x at a fraction of the cost.

    64 Cores is an awesome count without a doubt. Not too many people will bring it to its knees.Just a alot of money to get there but now you finally can. I am sure one O/C and LN2 have their way, watch out.

    Bitwit Kyle gets all excited about the thought of getting to build a ThreadRipper 3 3990x machine.

    My 3990X dream PC might actually happen ($10,000 budget)

    AMD just announced their Threadripper 3990X with 64 cores and 128 threads. With the launch less than a month away, I'm wasting no time planning my custom water cooled workstation with the beastly chip at its core...Assuming I can get one.

    Hopefully they send out some samples to overclockers, like intel did with the 3175x

    An xmg with AM4 socket, meaning either clevo or another similar ODM is making AMD laptops!

    And one of them they couldn't talk about was super thick, like P570WM thick it seemed.

    Need a Zen 2 desktop grade CPU such as 3700x (or at least 4800H - 45W) with 5700M GPU

    Don't worry about the voltage / power limits - unless they come locked like Intel (yipe!), as AMD so far has unlocked power and voltage settings.

    So a laptop version will be interesting to see how the makers treat the new mobile 4000 series AMD CPU's / APU's and mobile 5xxxm GPU's. It might take them a couple of revisions to figure out what is possible, and I hope they don't lock them down out of the gate due to no time to verify if unlocked is safe.
