AMD’s First Chromebook?!

So here we are, 2 years after carrizo and 1 year after the introduction of stoneyridge, they finally seems to be an AMD powered chromebook on the horizon. Why has it taken so long for AMD to have proper support for chrome OS? I won't even mention the lack of Android as it just points to ineptitude on AMD's management...

Why AMD Why? /RANT

Why is it so hard to give this company my hard earned money? They have what I want yet they continue to let me down with frankly stupid decisions! According to fudzilla AMD is allegedly going to roll out ravenridge APUs (read zen+polaris most likely) in the second half 2H2017. So in the mean time customers are just supposed to buy...

Nintendo Switch Has Me Conflicted

Bristolridge Just Around The Corner…

I'm somewhat excited for Bristolridge(BR), the A12 SKU looks promising but I am very worried about throttle behavior. The 65W TDP doesn't lend itself to sustained high clock speeds and I can see a repeat of Kaveri's 3GHz -under GPU load- throttle bug. Those concerns aside, it does feel like Kaveri redux. It has a newer GPU IP level and multimedia...

AMD Optimized Laptop /RANT

I can't quite understand why it has to be the way it is, I understand that this rant comes from a place of naivete and ignorance but I have to say it and this is my website dammit. I assume you build to your strengths and compensate for weaknesses, the situation with AMD powered laptops seem counter-intuitive. I am going...
