    Am i the onlyone that watching this and thinking why they do not have a vega 20 with em? If intel can do it with hades canyon then amd can too i am really scratching my head here .

    Because lenovo would still pair AMD's APUs with single channel 2133MHz memory.
    But on other side, those current 2500U/2700U are good for ultrabooks. Their default would be 15W, but some manufacturers put them into 12W mode as they are cheaping out on cooling.

    Those bigger GPUs would cost more to integrate into APU. And would eat more power. I would love even 25W 2700U.
    But then there is number of products made versus recognition. Intel has every CPU in dozens of notebooks. For AMD it is not worth to make another APU if they are selling just few of them. 1st they need to build recognition, otherwise no return of investment happens.

    Yes i get that but what i do not get is why they do not make something likr hades canyon they pretty much let intel have this category by themselfs .... now that i think about it i gues 50% of it is still amd i guess? And yes obviusly they will go way over the 15 watt

    On top of the deal with intel, AMD gets free marketing campaign for their GPUs. That will help with recognition.
