But for laptops … more> thunderbolt4 is more readily available on AMD
Source? TB4 is fully owned by Intel and (so far) relies heavily on the Intel virtualization instructions. AMD does have similar types of instructions, but it is unclear if Intel wants to include them in their proprietary standard. Only the older and much less secure TB3 was contributed to USB4 as a license free (optional) feature.
Neither USB4 nor TB3 are readily available on any of the AMD laptops. Furthermore, AMD kindly “forgot” to support anything above USB3.2 in their 2021 CPUs/built-in chipsets, let alone the more evolved TB4. I say “forgot” because there are official statements made by AMD personnel stating that TB3/faster IO is not a priority in their mobile roadmap. The sad truth is that they are yet to break away from the budget market mindset, despite having a much more capable chip.
Furthermore, since you claim that “there is no reason to get Intel Xe”, hardware decoding is crucial for good battery life — especially now that many have to do videoconferencing from home. AMD massively drops the ball with their hybrid decoders that tax the CPU or simply fallback to full software decoding, unlike Intel Xe that features most of the commonly used codecs for nearly full hardware decode in the GPU.
Intel now have bad performance per watt. PC may not be much of an impact.
But for laptops and ultra portables. Performance per watt is important.
Intel hold the thunderbolt 4 for now, that give them a step ahead of AMD in the ultra-portable market. But this year, thunderbolt4 is more readily available on AMD.. there is no more excuse to use Intel.. even with the XE or Evo graphics.
Intel have to outsource their chip production asap. Their foundry cannot create smaller chip at good yields. They will go down soon.
Another group of competitors are also coming in, the ARM processors, qualcomm and so on. So i predict PC rigs will mostly be AMD down the road, and qualcomm will dominate the ultraportable market. They have to complete with Apple‘s A series chip and M chip.. which have extreme performance per watt.
Anonymous, 7 hours agoAMD‘s thing has always been benchmark, just to be pushed back in real world performance. … moreWell, AMD is actually good and Intel bad, in performance that is. Both companies are equally bad but AMD has the better product. You are either a fanboy or own Intel stock…
I want Intel to come back for the sake of competition and better pricing for us consumers. That’s not going to happen with 150W chips that require personal nuclear power plants.
No 3nm, Samsung is way behind for 3nm. We are looking at 5nm, or more likely, products at 8nm. This will put their GPUs exactly on the same node as Nvidia
I think this will be fine if aimed towards Desktop/PC/Laptop market rather than constrict itself with Mobile Phones with limited headroom from throttling due to overheating and danger from exploding batteries being near the SoC.
chester, 5 hours agoAMD Samsung this & that…but nothing to show for it just hype & more hype for what??… moreWhat does exynos even have to do with this? Also stop being so biased, even exynos can be repaired
Jaeger, 13 hours agoNah. Cortex X1 is to blame for less than stellar battery life. And its implementation on SD888… moreActually under 20nm to 8nm Samsung’s fab is better.
7nm and 5nm is where Samsung lost.
For Summary Samung’s EUV process SUCKS.
And Samsung’s FinFET process ROCKS.

AMD Samsung this & that…but nothing to show for it just hype & more hype for what????
S21 came with sh*t Exynos…never buying that sh*t
Its 2021 I deserve Qualcomm SD888…the best

… moreWhat are you on about?
People already know the behavior of Zen 1, 2, 3 chips compared to Intel’s 6th-10th gen processors. Heck, you can verify it yourself. Do NOT “cherry pick” your data. If you want a good source, I recommend HardwareUnboxed as they’re non-biased and very thorough.
AMD was superior/competitive against Intel with Zen1/+ on a value perspective. With Zen2 they took the multithreaded performance crown. And with Zen3 they’ve taken the single-thread performance crown. The only things Intel has going for them is value (on certain chip+mobo combinations), certain functions (servers, algorithms, etc), and better support for OS (better stability on Windows, more driver support on Linux, and possiblity for Hackintosh).
There’s fanboys on both sides of the camp. Sometimes they’re right, sometimes they’re not.
Do your research and vote with your wallet.
Please release the Exynos with AMD graphics i.e. beast chip.

Improved alot in other areas where they matching intel now still with more cores holding lead
Intel seem very cheap just pushing core speed up
the next i9 only going go have 8 cores . compare that with what you can buy with amd
Anonymous, 12 hours agoDo you know how much more power draw Intel has, even with 10nm? It’s horrible and a waste… moreAMD‘s thing has always been benchmark, just to be pushed back in real world performance.
In a collection of much more representative benchmarks (a collection), Intel has still the lead (i7, i9 10th Gen). AMD‘s 5800X and 5900X are the one slightly better at multithreaded performance, only those, but what makes Intel “not competitive here” when you literally can’t buy them for normal prices? Until then Intel’s new series comes out. The 3000-series just started to even keep up with Coffee Lake.
AMD is good, but they are not yet better in any way like Intel was. They’re just on par.
The 3950X/5950X, btw, has inconsistencies. For some reason it performs worse than the 3700X or an i5 sometimes. This might not be their fault though. For production it is excellent, but for certain games not so much.
The Intel bad, AMD good hivemind really got you, huh?
Funny thing: I got AMD CPU’s. Can’t really say they are better to be honest. It’s just fanboyism. People literally said the 2600 was better than Intel CPU’s, for some reason only today people know it, surprise, wasn’t. Lmao.
