Plenty of AMD news announced today during the digital CES event, with new CPUs and GPUs on the way for this year including the Ryzen 5000 Series Mobile CPUs and RDNA 2 GPUs.

Much like Intel with their newly announced 11th Gen Intel Core H-series mobile processors, a big focus for AMD is on notebooks as well as the desktop. AMD wants to take the performance crown here, with the Ryzen 5000 Series Mobile CPUs - this is Zen 3 going properly mobile. AMD are claiming an "up to" 16% increase in single-threaded performance and "up to" 14% for multi-threaded over the previous generation.

“As the PC becomes an even more essential part of how we work, play and connect, users demand more performance, security and connectivity,” said Saeid Moshkelani, senior vice president and general manager, Client business unit, AMD. “The new AMD Ryzen 5000 Series Desktop and Mobile Processors bring the best innovation AMD has to offer to consumers and professionals as we continue our commitment to delivering best-in-class experiences with instant responsiveness, incredible battery life and fantastic designs. With our PC partners, we are delivering top-quality performance and no-compromise solutions alongside our record-breaking growth in the notebook and desktop space in the previous year.”

Coming along with that, AMD also announced some new desktop chips coming too, however these new reduced TDP models will only be available to system builders it seems:

Also very exciting is the upcoming additions to RDNA 2, AMD's next-generation GPU architecture. AMD confirmed today that RDNA 2 will be coming to gaming notebooks next, with new "mainstream" desktop GPUs based on RDNA 2 to follow along. Both of which are being targeted for a release in the first half of 2021. No real extra info was given out on these RDNA 2 GPUs today though other than the vague window of when to expect them.

AMD also announced more monstrous server chips with 3rd Gen AMD EPYC.

Well now what I want is a SoC with this that is the same form factor as the Raspberry Pi so I can stick it in my Atari Arcade Fight Stick https://www.microcenter.com/product/623128/atari-dual-fight-stick-with-trackball-usb
That 5600U CPU looks right up my alley, a shitton of mobile computing power and probably adequate for some gaming. Finding the sweet spot build will be a challenge though, I'm have zero tolerance for soldered ram, including soldered + 1 slot configs.

If only it was possible to buy already existing RDNA 2 GPUs. Shortages are rampant now.

Still waiting to find Sapphire Pulse RX 6800 XT anywhere.

Quoting: Kithop
Quoting: BoldosApologies, I was not specific enough:
By "available directly in EU" I meant if they are sold directly in EU.
What you confirm is they "ship" into EU, but that technically means "import", so we have to pay VAT and customs fees. And that makes it painfully expensive....

Ah, okay - that makes sense. I don't know much about them, but Tuxedo Computers appears to be based out of Germany, and at first glance sounds like kind of the same idea?

For Tuxedo, we do use their computer at Office, and they have AMD options. Quite solid laptops for now. Roughly the same models, but with some adjustments: they tend to use lower power screen, so slightly less brightness, but better battery life, and much much more keyboard options. They also seem to use lightweight magnesium for more models than System76 last time I checked.
And of course, VAT is included and no custom fees.

Thanks guys. Yes, this is a very tempting alternative for the EU; I will be definitely checking with them, once I need a new laptop. Nevertheless, I was also interested about System76's oss firmware, which - AFAIK - nobody else provides.

https://www.reddit.com/r/linuxhardware/comments/gbhe7w/coreboot_on_tuxedo_infinitybook_s_14_v5/ second message, it *seems* firmware works on equivalent laptops. Well, that's surely a bit risky. If you are more patient: https://www.tuxedocomputers.com/en/Infos/Help-Support/Frequently-asked-questions/Coreboot-on-TUXEDO-Computers-devices.tuxedo it seems Tuxedo themselves are working on it.

I somehow hope they could manage to work together with system76, also for OS side. I think that would be very productive move for both, and anyway, considering custom fee + VAT for system76 as it stands, I don't think they'll get many european customers ... So better cooperate together and try to improve to face bigger players like dell and co with a truly different offer and more world coverage.

So AMD have dropped APUS ? since the 4 thousand series are meant to be oem exclusive but they can be found on ali express and no 5000g chips or an athlon to replace the 3000g series disspointing wanted to see where they were going with it.

You can also check slimbook, they seem to have pretty decent laptops with AMD

That's a pretty cool idea.
