    that is a yuuuuge hurt for intel.

    my laptop and OS will never be patched so i can compare the performance in terms of IPC per different software when i do get a ryzen rig.

    AMD's biggest leak, if that CB15 score to be true, this is an excellent architectural improvement over zen1 because CB15 only gets like 2-4% max difference from memory OC, rest are all IPC gain which means 10-12% IPC for CB15 seems real. that ST IPC i'd guess be around 190-195, which is still damn amazing already.

    in another news, we have the biggest Intel leak, a performance reduction of up to 40%!! due to security patch.

    How long has AMD been making APU's now? 10 years? And still, the graphics processing power is on the weak side.
    People buy intel because they want a strong cpu, and they are satisfied with weak intel integrated graphics.
    Seems to me, AMD should offer a product with a low to mid CPU but powerful graphics processing power.

    Recently, I got excited when I read about "chiplets".
    Why can't/won't amd put a 4 core / 8 thread AMD cpu next to a mid-level discrete amd gpu, and both under one cpu cooler?
    I know it's a lot of heat, but there are plenty of aftermarket cpu coolers, and high performance TIM.

    When I go on youtube, I see lots of PC builds for "cheap gaming PC" under $500.
    And I think .... if only AMD made a APU which had enough graphics power to run any modern game at 1080p/60fps.
    People could simply build a mini PC with a APU (and no graphics card) and this would satisfy all their cpu/gpu needs up to 1080p/60fps,
    and at a lower cost (compared to a PC with discrete graphics card).

    Imagine the AsRock Desk mini with a 30W TDP cpu chip and 60W TDP graphics chip, combined into one 90W APU.
