    It also features Windows Ink support, presumably Microsoft Pen Protocol with the included stylus. See here:

    Freshly leaked yesterday, keep in mind the integrated GPU in AMD's 15W CPU is within striking distance of NVIDIA's 25W GeForce MX150:

    Judging by the pricing on HP's website for their other premium AMD-based Envy x360 convertibles, this should come in in the neighborhood of $600 to $700. Budget artists are going to love this thing. Consider myself floored.

    Note: Some sites are assuming this is a 35W processor. Actually, most likely, it is not given its included 45W power adapter. If it were a 35W processor, it would have a 65W power supply included with it. This has always been the case with Intel and AMD laptops for their given processor TDP.

    tl;dr The new mobile-oriented 15-watt Ryzen 7 2700U meets the likes of Intel’s 45-watt Skull Canyon NUC in CPU performance and beats its flagship Intel Iris Pro Graphics 580 in GPU performance. All in all, Intel just got majorly pwned by AMD. But this is only the beginning: more desktop and mobile AMD Ryzen APUs are expected to be released by the first quarter of next year.

    Two biggest takeaways:

    Graphics performance -
    AMD's integrated Radeon Vega Graphics in the Ryzen 7 2700U (with a 15W TDP) outperforms Intel's flagship Iris Pro Graphics 580 (with a 45W TDP) as featured in their venerable Skull Canyon NUC:

    And for those interested to see how the Ryzen 7 2700U APU performs against the green team, here are some benches vs an MX150:

    [​IMG]

    Only about 11.5% behind in graphics performance and 22.5% behind in physics calculation...not bad at all, considering the combined package power of the 8550U (15W) + MX150 (25W) compared to the 2700U's listed 15W! :eek:

    Well... That rocks!

    Waiting for the machines with 8550U to be released and now waiting for some versions that include ryzen mobile APUs instead and then waiting for Ryzen 2 to be released next year... All that waiting... Argh!

    Just to keep expectations realistic, it is also possible these benchmarks were run while at the optional 25W TDP Up configuration. No problem, though: most of the 8550U devices we have seen are actually typically also in the 25W TDP up configuration as well. This is generally the case for the Surface line (e.g. my Surface Pro 4 i7 defaults to a 25W TDP configuration as verified in Intel Extreme Tuning Utility) and other more premium laptops and 2-in-1's (XPS, Spectre, etc.). Making the necessary adjustments, that means a combined package power of 8550U (25W) + MX150 (25W) compared to the 2700U's 25W TDP Up configuration. That said, that is still half of the power draw of its competitors (25W versus 50W), nothing to be sneezed at. It represents a far less expensive investment with quicker time to market for PC manufacturers from a simpler engineering timeline where only one part is required instead of two.
