    Raven Ridge? Probably Quad-cores. Sigh, I was hoping for a hex-core at long last. WHYYYYY T_T

    Let's elaborate on this topic a bit: So according to the slide, ryzen mobile scores 50% more than 7th gen APU. Let's assume they're talking about FX-9830P that scores 4340 at 3DMark FS Physics score, so 50% more is like ~6200. Ryzen mobile GPU scores 40% more than bristol ridge's Radeon R7 Carrizo (= gt 920mx), which is too low, not worth even talking about.

    Now where does 6200 score in FS physics put mobile Ryzen at? Well, not too good, since 7700HQ scores ~10K in the same test. In fact, i5-7300hq scores ~6500, so that is a more appropriate competing rival. Where did they see "high-end" I have no clue, this is just another APU and for that it IS a great improvement, but please do not embarrass yourselves (journalists) calling it "high-end", especially considering that joke of a graphics card.

    Unless AMD plans to release Raven Ridge that works @2Ghz, their APUs should score way more than that.

    Several things to note:
    'thin and light' - not a good indication of performance, considering that most notebooks which conform to those parameters are rather weak.

    Its just a first glimpse. We don't know if these are just initial engineering sample tests with a certain type of APU (say lowest end)... and if they are, there's a chance the end product will be clocked much higher, and ergo, score better (especially if there are several versions of it).

    AMD must know that it has to make a mobile solution capable of tackling Intel's top end as well... right now, I think its still early to tell definitively.
