    i wish Clevo used kickstarter to see design a laptop with Ryzen and 1060/1070 in a P750XX chassis

    I googled "kickstarter crickets" hoping to find an amusing collection of zero interest kickstarter projects, and instead found these:
    Sustainable Protein Bars & Powders made with Crickets
    https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/coastprotein/sustainable-protein-bars-and-powders-made-with-cri

    Lithic Nutrition - Cricket-based Paleo Bars and Powders
    https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/567763119/lithic-nutrition-cricket-protein-bars-and-protein

    Critter Bitters: Cocktail bitters made with toasted crickets
    https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1555345374/critter-bitters-cocktail-bitters-made-with-toasted

    So happy I googled...

    Yes, unlike I assume a Ryzen CPU + Nvidia GPU kickstarter would have been, as in "so quiet you can hear the crickets" - *crickets chirp*:
    *"Used to point out or emphasize silence. (Well, not precisely silence, since chirping crickets make sound. But you get it.)

    The idea is that you can only hear crickets when there are no other sounds, such as conversation or laughter. Often used to denote the awkward pause after a bad joke.

    Joe: What's the sound of two drums and a cymbal falling over a cliff?

    Ted: *tiredly* I don't know, Joe. What is the sound of two drums and a cymbal falling over a cliff?

    Joe: ba-DUM-ksh!

    *crickets chirp*

    Joe: ...Oh, come on. That was funny."

    It's not Clevo that is holding back the existance of this type of product.

    Though you also have to understand that AMD is not in a great place financially so they have to be laser focused at the moment on their markets. Hopefully they do well and can expand out from there.

    AMD is hitting another peak valuation point...

    AMD: A $10 Billion Valuation
    https://seekingalpha.com/article/4035299-amd-10-billion-valuation

    "2016 is over and AMD's (NASDAQ:AMD) market capitalization has risen from $2.178 billion to $10.21 billion today - a 377% increase over the past year.

    AMD has traded at this level on only two other occasions before: Q2-Q3 of 2000 and Q4 2005 - Q1 2007. The rise in market capitalization in both occasions came with the release of a competitive CPU processor/architecture."

    That may be tenuous though, depending on how Vega does and what the fallout of these vs the newer intels turns out to be. The current valuation is based more on speculation that they will regain significant market presence in the near future.

    At any rate, there is not enough customer request to build those yet, if AMD hits well, I do think that they will sell MAD well.

    Agreed. I'd say regardless of features or even performance, the crowd that just wants to stick it to NVidia/Intel is big enough that they'll snap them up.
