    10:09AM EST - World's best all-round notebook processor

    I'm sorry, what? Have they lost their mind? They're significantly behind Apple in ST, MT, GPU, ML, Accelerators, battery life.

    And this will be far behind Alder Lake on laptops too.
  • lemurbutton - Tuesday, January 4, 2022 - link

    Let's be real here. AMD is now 3rd place behind Apple and Intel for laptops. They're 2nd place on desktops until Apple releases the iMac Pro and Mac Pro with up to 4x M1 Max glued together.

    Lets be real here you're a troll.
  • geo2160 - Tuesday, January 4, 2022 - link

    Let's be real here. You have no source for your claims.
  • medi03 - Tuesday, January 4, 2022 - link

    Apparently Apple zealots are even worse than NVs.
  • Coldfriction - Tuesday, January 4, 2022 - link

    When your metrics include "general purpose cpu accessable by anyone to run essentially any operating system in essentially any compatible hardware that is not vendor gnostic" Apple's silicon comes in way down the list behind most. My metrics include such thinking. Open standards and standards compliance is required for a piece of computer hardware to be the "best all-around" in my world.

    Enjoy the walls.

    Troll... Apple is behind in reality.
  • CrystalCowboy - Tuesday, January 4, 2022 - link

    Amazing! AT 10:09 Dr. Su morphs into a white male, and at 10:18 morphs back. Perhaps you can identify the mystery guest on the second edit.
  • CrystalCowboy - Wednesday, January 5, 2022 - link

    I believe that was Jason Banta, corporate vice president and general manager of AMD's Client OEM business
  • CrystalCowboy - Tuesday, January 4, 2022 - link

    It appears the 6nm with some enhancements is being officially called Zen 3+.
