    genexis_x got a reaction from soldier_ph for a status update, Some new info based on latest leaks (which I believe it's 99% correct): 1. Ryzen 5000   
    Some new info based on latest leaks (which I believe it's 99% correct):

    1. Ryzen 5000 mobile U series will have 4 main SKU: R5-5500U, R5-5600U, R7-5700U, R7-5800U:
    5500U and 5700U are with Zen 2 cores (4600U and 4800U refresh) with some minor clock speed bump. R5 will have 7 CUs. 5600U and 5800U are Zen 3. Notice 5600U has cut down L3 cache. iGPU is still Vega, Navi iGPU rumoured for Ryzen 6000.
     
    2. Based on Ryzen 4000 mobile, we can roughly know the specs for H series SKU. If no surprise, R5-5600H will have the same, if not similar spec to 5600U (higher TDP of course). Mayb cut down iGPU but still has same max turbo speed. Same applies to R7-5800H (5800U).
     
    3. Usually H series CPU will cut 200MHz boost clock from desktop ones (eg 4600H vs 3600 and 4800H vs 3700X). Based on the previous theory, I guess there will be R5-5600 at 4.4GHz (+200MHz from 5600H, 5600X is 4.6 for reference) and R7-5700/5800 at 4.6GHz (5800H is 4.4, 5800X is 4.7) in future.

    I think I've asked this before but nvm: Do you think CPU+GPU performance is important in non gaming laptops (Ultrabook, business laptops...)? Just want to hear your opinions.

    My personal opinion:
    3060 'should' have similar performance to 2080. So if we do the math, a 3060 mobile (80w) will perform around the same with 2080MQ (80w). Not sure how good Ampere scales with power though. That is roughly 15-20% performance increase compared to 2060 80w.
     
    Ryzen 5000 laptops are pretty much confirmed to have higher prices compared to Ryzen 4000 (rumoured: R5-5600H +$120, R7-5800H +$180, compared to predecessor). So if you want to buy a R7-4800H+2060 laptop now, there's nothing wrong with it. It's still a decent buy. Would be even better if the 2060 is 115w variant (of course 3060 mobile should have a 115w variant also, but I think the performance difference will be about the same). For a R7-5800H+3060 laptop, you pay more to get 15-20% more CPU&GPU performance. To me I DON'T think it's REALLY worth it.
     
    And yes, both Intel and AMD + 30 series gaming laptops will not be cheap. Intel will probably use CML-H (10th gen) and TGL-U (TDP up to 35w) while AMD will have Ryzen 5000 H.

    The breadboard at bottom right is power button because shorting pins is bothersome
    Could add more button for clear cmos maybe
     
    Spec:
    Core 2 Quad Q8300
    2x4GB DDR3 1333MHz
    GTX 970 Strix
    Patriot burst 120GB (nid more for benchmarking games)
    Seasonic M12ii Evo Bronze 620W (shush, it works, if it sets things on fire then so be it)
     
    Also the motherboard isn't aligned with the wood beneath to trigger people

    I don't understand why people are angry that they cant buy a card on day 1, as if they're entitled to it
    "they're not buying it for intended use" who are you to tell someone how to use a product they bought, they can use a RTX 3080 to play fetch with their pet frog for all I care.
     
    Don't like it? Try harder to buy it next time, with a bot or whatever. It's unethical? Enjoy living a fair life.
     
    I'll just wait till people beta test for me, as usual, before I grab one myself.
    I'm the kind who goes shopping at 3am because there's no queue.

    No, I didn't fill that by hand: it does use simple formulas.

     
    The screenshot version I was working on has my predictions for the potential Navi 2.0 cards and how they mght compare to older AMD cards.
     
    A version without the colour annotations is attached if you want to play with it more. The colouring I did manually.
     
    The Vega 1.0 numbers are me being super cautious. In reality it could be around 10% higher.
     
    Here's the cleaned up spreadsheet.
    AMD CU comparison spreadsheet.xlsx
     
    I may revisit this at some point and further clean it up.
     
    I will say tho the 1.2x multiplier is slightly conservative, you can adjust that to 1.4-1.5  to account for Navi 2.0 having 1.5x performance per watt and much higher clocka.

    It seems like Tongfang never really test their laptops long term before releasing new models to public. The result is, almost every model has their own issues. Bloating battery, high failure rate+replacement cost of keyboard, low quality motherboard, burnt chipset/GPU, screen flickering, cheapo default RAM+SSD (some resellers do offer higher end SSDs), and the list goes on...
     
    Yes they have a poor history of making poor quality stuffs. They had improved now, but their QA+QC still have a long way to go, compared to established brands. They have good engineering in performance testing, but not in long run testing...
