I go on holiday and come back to see so much wonderful news, I don’t even know where to start. Actually that’s a lie because the only thing 2 things I’m truly interested in are the Hades Canyon NUC and the desktop Ryzen APUs!

The Hades Canyon NUC is very interesting via its size and potency. I really like the form factor in terms of volume and aesthetics, while the utility takes a rather expensive hit with all the thunderbolt accessories -read eGPU adapters etc.

The upcoming desktop line has me excited for desktop APUs again. The prices are right and the performance should be there. Ryzen 3 levels of CPU performance with RX 540 to 550 levels of performance! It uses the AM4 platform and boards are getting cheaper, I will definitely be building an APU system!
