    Hopefully this means we can get a Vega variant in laptops soon, too.
    I believe this is the first use of HBM2 in a laptop we've seen.

    If not already out, these should be in shipping laptops soon.

    I'll wait and see. Once iGPUs start nipping at the heels of a 1050 (and similar generational equivalents) is when the game will really change, I think.

    Well, that depends on when the manuf. process allows for GPU's to reach that performance level.
    Right now, the Vega igp in Raven Ridge is touted to be at GT 1030 level of performance... which is pretty good for light gaming... 7nm (and Navi) might be when we finally see much higher performance from AMD in the igP and desktop space as it will likely connect multiple GPU's via infinity fabric.

    Funny, I noticed that too. This feels like a very "Apple" based play.
    The anandtech article posted above they mentioned Apple specifically too.
    I wonder if we'll see these chips just in NUCs, Surface devices and Apple products along with some premium Asus / Dell thinbooks........... Just like Iris Pro. Go figure.

    Don't get me wrong, strides are clearly being made. But I don't think Raven Ridge is going to make much difference to the dGPU landscape. As I said, iGPUs need to catch up to the point where they cut into 1050 notebook sales. I would guess that the number of people who will now go with with an iGPU laptop over a dGPU laptop due to Raven Ridge is small.
