This is unfortunate, they are seriously missing an opportunity to at least just released 4c, 6c, and 8c retail processors for those looking for high end office, htpc, and sff builds but don't need much more than rx550 performance in the graphics department

Must admit... I think there needs to be a bit of a change with the naming schemes of all these things as it's way too confusing!

We've had the nVidia 2000 series and the 3000 series coming up soon. The Zen 2 with their 3000 series, a refresh of the 3000 series just before the 4000 series comes out, but the 4000 series aren't as good as the 3000 enthusiast CPUs... until the 4000 series comes out.

I have to work out what we're talking about on every new post. I'll bet there's a few ebayers taking full advantage and selling old hardware at new prices!

This is rot I suspect: "the chips support a PCIe 3.0 x8 connection to the .... and a x8 connection to the integrated graphics. "

the gpu>cpu link is via Fabric, & afaik, can ~saturate memory bandwidth.

this is hugely significant.

One is an 8GB/s link, the other is ~50GB/s w/ newly ~mainstream 3600 cl16 ram, & 70GB/s+ seems on the cards down the road.

Whenever apuS come up in discussions, the reflexive response of gaming oriented naysayers is "the integrated gpu will always be crap cos it uses slow system memory as gpu cache", yet when ~mainstream system memory shifts from ~30GB/s on raven ridge apu, to ~50GB/s w/ Renoir, it goes unremarked on?

If i am right, then shame on ur misinformationTomsHardware!
