    Yes, 88W/142W are the default PPT values. Analogous to Intel's TDP/PL1 (although Intel's value is for base clock).

    Gamers nexus did a video on how the TDP figure is a nonsense value.

    Personally I can see the appeal of an AMD CPU with a higher performance per watt with a steady 4.2 Ghz and at least 8 multithreaded cores but gamers like to shoot for 5 GHz even if that is only for fewer cores at a time.

    As of now it seems Intel still has the best CPU's for that job and with the new processors they seem determined to keep that edge so I would expect them to again dominate the biggest gaming laptops until AMD catches up in top speed.

    There's various AMD content in the CES 2020 thread:
    http://forum.notebookreview.com/thr...ts-video-articles.831509/page-6#post-10984693

    There's one I posted recently that has good info on the new AMD 7nm Ryzen 4000 mobile CPU's with laptop integration examples:

    PCWorld
    Gordon chats with AMD's Senior Director of Product Management David McAfee about the launch of Ryzen 4000 mobile CPUs, why more cores matter in a laptop, and power efficiency.

    Anyone knows if we will see laptops with pci-e gen 4 internal ssds? The speed improvements are really nice but I never saw a laptop with one of those.

    So far it looks like AMD is going with PCIE 3.0 for the new laptops, as is the Clevo 3900 based on the B450 (PCIE 3.0), so far I haven't heard of any PCIE 4.0 AMD laptops - using the x570 chipset, which needs more cooling and draws more power than the previous PCIE 3.0 chipsets.

    The good news is even on a PCIE 3.0 chipset, the Gen 4 SSD's are fastest - completely saturating the bandwidth of the PCIE 3.0 chipset - so it's still worth getting one to use on PCIE 3.0 now and bringing it with you when you upgrade to PCIE 4.0 down the road:

    PCI-e 4 is power hungry and for most applications it's not worth it.

    The Clevo NH57ADS looks good... :)

    The World's MOST POWERFUL 15" Gaming laptop - 12 CORES!
    Jan 11, 2020

    Correction: From AMD the 3900 can indeed be tuned for voltage and frequency, it's unlocked and overclockable.
    The Clevo NH57ADS is a 15" Gaming laptop with a desktop AMD 65w CPU, up to a Ryzen 9 3900. Base clock 3.1 Ghz, Max boost 4.3 Ghz. Its based on the B450 chipset and socket AM4 so provided you can get an updated BIOS it provides a good degree of futureproofing. The GPU uses a 115W GPU so the RTX 2070 Max P is a good fit. It can have 64 GB RAM, and has 2 x m.2 slots and 1 x 2.5" bay for storage plus Wifi 6. It also has a removable 62 Wh battery and only weighs 5.95 lbs (2.7 kgs) Width: 36.1 cm / 14.21" Depth: 25.8cm / 10.15" This will be available on www.eluktronics.com


    CES 2020: Clevo & XMG Prepare Notebooks w/ 12-Core AMD Ryzen 9 3000 CPUs

    The sticker on the laptop says it's the first, but the article corrects that:

    "For the sake of truth, it is necessary to note that Clevo’s NH57ADS is not the first DTR notebook to feature a desktop AMD Ryzen processor. ASUS introduced its ROG Strix GL702ZC with an eight-core AMD Ryzen 7 1700 back in late 2017, but that was a 17.3-inch machine."

    First ryzen 3 series destkop replacement would be more accurate.
