I had most of the review written for this months ago, but when I re-read it, I was so incredibly bored that I just didn’t bother finishing it. So I won’t do a formal review(or my lacklustre attempts), I’ll just post a video and write an overview. Firstly, it comes bare bones, so the
Here are a few upcoming carrizo notebooks I found with my google-fu.

I won’t pretend to know how well[or not well] the company is doing but I can’t help but feeling like it is their own fault. There is decline in the PC market which I don’t quite understand, where have all these sales gone? I feel like it wouldn’t be tablets because even the tablet market
The Bunbungame Photon 2 (aka the only AMD tablet) was unboxed on an asian forum. I have tried to see If I could order one from Taiwan but the shop it is being sold on doesn’t serve foreign countries yet. Here are some of the photos and a link below to the forum, surprisingly nice packaging.
So, HP is AMD’s closest buddy right now and one of the only ODMs that build laptops with AMD apus. Having tested mullins and kaveri based products from HP that have been very competent, this just takes the cake! HP is selling windows 10 laptops with AMD apus, but the catch is that they are selling them equipped
The photon 2 [specs here] is available, that is if you live or at least shop in Taiwan. The pricing is NT$13,900, which is equivalent to ~$449 USD. Now to figure out how to get one! On their store store.bungbungame.com/ | pchome.com.tw 24h.pchome.com.tw/

The Bungbungame Photon 2 in action. I was in contact with their PR for a while and they let me know that there were fine tuning the tablet to best suit their customers, that was back in April. Now it seem like they have finished tweaking their hardware. According to pc.watch.impress.co.jp (translated Japanese), “For sale
Kaveri Refresh In late 2013, Kaveri was on the horizon and initial statements from members of AMD suggested that top end Kaveri was “going to be AMD’s first TeraFLOP APU”. But the release fell short. And with Carrizo canceled for socketed platforms, FM2+ owners were left wondering if an upgrade would ever be made available.
