Wow, APUs have come a long long way since the early days with A8 3870 APUs. They were kinda belittled always, but are taken serious more and more, and these supercomputer APUs are just monsters.

build in a custom way they can be very powerful. the problem is people are expecting APU to do miracle things on regular PC where it cannot be build in a way to make it more powerful like in console and this upcoming APU.

That is true, however soon we will have RDNA3 APUs with DDR5, this will be much much more potent than current APUs and actually fast enough for 1080p gaming.

except people are dreaming of PC APU having the performance for something like RX5700/RX6600.
Next I say it will have the performance of 6600 and then you reply “except people are dreaming of having performance of 6800 XT in APUs” there’s no winning with people who want to argue and be edge lords. Bye

Yeah but you know the OEMs will STILL be pairing it with single channel memory... :ROFLMAO::disrelieved:
Yea, well don’t buy prebuilt pcs…
The only time I can remember an APU being really custom was that Intel CPU with AMD GPU with HBM combo for the NUC. It never took off and was abandoned after the first generation. IIRC the GPU performance was that of a 1660.
It wasn’t that fast, maybe in its dreams. Yea driver situation with that APU was a disaster, if you can call intel+Radeon a APU.
