Speak for yourself. These APU's would make great high end routers for pfSense/VyOS/Untagled/etc. I was waiting for launch, but I guess it'll take place when we see the A520 chipset boards released?"DIY lovers" don't care about APUs. We're just waiting for Zen3 Vermeer CPU.
Yes, but the fact is, people who want these are in the minority. The ultra-tiny minority.Not all DIYers are gamers. Some of us just want a speedy computer capable of displaying 4k for web and mobile development. I've been holding off buying a 3700X since the 4700G would save me $170 off a "budget" GPU. I can't find any GPUs under $100 with a full height fan (no loud fans!) capable of 4k resolution. Plus integrated graphics makes DIY so much better - how many times have you wasted hours troubleshooting and swapping out components just to find out the GPU wasn't seated correctly or the PCI slot was bad, etc? The only reason I was still favoring Intel over AMD up until a year or 2 ago for my new build to replace my outdated build was that the 8700K (then 9700K, 10700K) had integrated graphics and while a bundled CPU cooler is worth $50, I'd wager integrated graphics is worth a lot more than that looking any GPU worth buying.
