    Yeah... i know... post Ryzen All AMD laptop is nothing new... with MSI Alphas and Bravos available in the market for a certain period of time, it's nothing new.

    However, this year, it's getting exciting as few more other makers jumps into the red pool! HP, Lenovo, as well as others... the market is going to be fun, when the all :pred:p blood competes with half greenish ":Dalien:D" blood!

    I hope it doesn't mean soldered down RAM and WLAN adapters like Intel EVO.

    Well... AMD don't make WiFi adaptors for sure.
    However we can't really stop laptop makers from making "all in one" system as the demand for slimmer products are going up north. Some Ryzen-H high performance CPU based systems already arrived with soldered RAM configurations.
    The ThinkBook 16pro is one of them.

    more interested in their zen3+, stacked cache will probably be amazing.

    Hopefully they dont fail like the DELL G5 SE did but then again that was Dell's fault.

    Im more interested in Fidelity FX Super Resolution

    and since its compatible with Nvidia GPUs it'll give GTX users new life!.

    to be fair, other makes from other manufacturers have their fair share of heating issues with the 4000 series CPUs in their systems which can be point fault to poor internal heat dissipation designs as well... that some users have to employ regedit hacks to their CPU to keep their system operation temperature down.
    so... Dell‘s fault is kind of subjective...

    First detailed benchmark results on the RX 6800M from Hardware Unboxed.



    Straight rasterization performance puts the 6800M right between the RTX 3070 and 3080 at 1080p and 1440p in most titles. However, due to AMD's wider "dynamic boost" range, minimum frame rates tend to be a bit better. It also looks like the tighter vertical component integration means Ryzen/Radeon laptops will come in significantly cheaper than their NVIDIA-equipped counterparts. HUB says the Asus model they tested will range in price from around USD$1,550-$1,750, which makes it a no-brainer if you're after the most bang for your buck. This is, of course, provided NVIDIA-specific features aren't high your priority list.

    The lynchpin for all this will be how FSR stacks up to DLSS in terms of performance, visual quality, and game support.

    Looks like poor RAM timings are holding back the ASUS ROG G15, and replacing them with good RAM would make the laptop less competitively priced. AMD's Advantage program probably should have a criteria for RAM timings if the performance delta between bad RAM and good RAM is noticeable.
    Enduro also plays a role into the performance as well; would be interesting to see how many Advantage laptops will have a MUX switch or dedicates the laptop screen to the dGPU.

    Looks like the lack of a MUX and the slower RAM is really hurting performance of these systems. H/T Jarrod's tech on Twitter.

    A lot of laptops can handle the 4000 series well but the DELL G5 SE failed hard because its poor cooling design

    This thread is a good example of it.

    Just wow.

    AMD is really going hard at Nvidia and the price is great!. Most ASUS laptops dont have a MUX which makes no sense in 2021. Its still crazy that cheap RAM really holds back the true performance of Ryzen.
