Some early numbers from NotebookCheck on the quad-core Ryzen 5 2500U:
The graphics is a bit disappointing though. It still trails behind the MX150 by 20-30%. While it is surely better than anything Intel, its still not that usable for gaming. In that case, you still need a dGPU, and what that means is the iGPU performance will be irrelevant. When a dGPU exists, the priorities for the iGPU would then shift from performance to power consumption/battery life
Already quite useable. I think there was a higher end version that hasn’t leaked yet (?)
MX150 (25W) and 8250U(15W) = 40W TDP
2500U = 15W TDP
Have you seen the battery life? Not great at the moment
The 2500U has the lowest power consumption in all scenarios when you look at the bottom of the notebook check article.
I doubt it’s the fault of the APU for the poor performance.
The display seems to be crap too, according to your link.
Can’t help but wonder what an Eve-like device would be like with one of these…
It’s great that we have options if the next device is a more workstation-y laptop, though it might be a harder sell logistically as the team already has a working relationship with Intel for the V.
I would like to see V with a Ryzen APU. It would be a pretty good light gaming solution for on the go. Now it wouldn’t be the best but. It would provide us with something that would be viable for pc gaming on the go and still get really good performance plus the price point of the cpu would allow for the eve v to take a price drop.
