    interesting.

    What would be desktop hardware to achieve similar score?

    I would guess for 1080p something in an area of GTX 950... / 750Ti even.

    If Cost is decent, we can have a very nice set of laptops for hopefully cheap price and in a nice form factor. Sounds great to me, small but powerful laptop for your work / travel, that can run some oldie game.

    Is this SOC actually better from cooling perspective than present solution?

    It means, know we have 35W / 45 W TDP CPU + GPU modul which in Geforce 1050 is 75W (desktop) or intel give now 65W or 105W chip..

    What is better from cooling point of view, 2 chips with lesser TDP, or 1 with big?

    I always thought for dividing power and 2 chips solution would be better

    depends, 2 chips give more surface area, and is easier to cool, but an soc will only need one heatsink which will be cheaper to manufacter,

    I would expect this platform to use one larger heatsink to cover both chips since the mcm is quite compact , best of both worlds really.

    Not bad results. You could do some light gaming on these. Heck 1080p on medium might be doable on this. Or heck 720p on high.

    Finally. A convertible with decent GPU. Been waiting for it a few years. Not for gaming but 3D work.

    I'd love to see what kind of framerates that machine can achieve with popular eSports titles, such as LoL, Dota2, CSGO, etc.

    as good as it is to hit 30+ frames on high - i wonder if it could reach triple digits with less demanding titles that are played as eSports

    Assuming the total TDP of both solutions are the same and the total surface area of the chips are the same, it theoretically doesn't make much of a difference.

    In practice though it is better to have the heat more concentrated as, with a good design, it allows you to to have shorter length of heat pipes (slightly more effective and easier/cheaper to manufacture), larger relative space dedicated to a radiator and fan (assuming marketing doesn't force a smaller "sexier" chassis), and the heat sources can be kept away from other components. Granted some of the advantages I listed may be countered by the chips being hotter due to their proximity to each other thus requiring the larger radiator to keep the temps down, reducing the overall net benefit.

    That looks like a fairly decent performer for that smaller, portable type of device. 35 FPS on High in one of the more demanding games out there is pretty good, especially compared to the competition. This should handle most of the games on the market at High or better settings, just not the most demanding ones graphics wise.

    I would love to see 35W TDP variant, for very small Akasa Euler like passively cooled small computers with finally decent GPU performance for old games at least..
