AMD is releaseing its 2500u/2700u Ryzen APU's (15watt TPD) soon and leaked benchmarks are insane!
Its crazy how power effecient these things are at low clocks.
How fast is the 2700u then?
Well its a ryzen cpu with 4 cores / 8 threads, with max clock speeds of 3.8ghz.
It does better than Intel's i7-8550U in benchmarks (Intels laptop chip from Q3 2017, which costs 400$+).
Too put that into perspective heres a 15watt mobile chip, beating a i5-7600k (base clocks) in a multi tasking benchmark (cinebench):
vs the i7-8550U:
But what surprises me is that this 15watt APU has 1.63 Teraflop of GPU performance.
The "switch" can use upwards of 18watts+ when docked.
Sony could basically do a Playstation 4 "switch" version with one of these!
I had low expectation for "next" gen with Playstation 5 ect, but this news with the Ryzen 2700u laptop apu, made me see things in a new light.
