Are the Ryzen Pros APUs? Because if not, I really don't see how these OEM systems will be cheaper than an Intel with an iGPU equivalent.
Not these ones, no; they're the standard Ryzen parts but with added Pro-ness (security and reliability features) plus the promise that they won't disappear from the market next year when AMD launches Ryzen 2: Electric Boogaloo.
They won't really compete with this:
But rather with this:
There will be a Pro version of the Ryzen APUs as well, but of course date unknown.
all i care is, right now intel onboard 620 is good enough for me to play games on low quality but on decent battery on my ultrabook.
can AMD pull off something like that but either cheaper, faster, or both?
Do you guys think AMDs CPU department is feeling held back by the GPU department.
While Ryzen is nicely slotted with power draw, pricing and performance, Vega was a complete miss for most use cases.
I'm sure AMD is aware that APUs are where the money's at, but probably just couldn't wait any longer to release Ryzen, let alone build Ryzen APUs.
