Yeah, I thought Ryzen will allow that too (even under Naples which is for servers instead of Raven Ridge which is for laptops).

Looks like I better rethink all these, or just wait and recharge more money
It will be surprising if AMD can ready the Raven Ridge APUs on time for ang moh tua ki back to school season. I got a feeling cannonlake for laptops may have a better chance to be on time though.

Its like a so close yet so far time for looking at decent laptop upgrades. The laptop user side of me is looking at the possibility of a decent Zen HBM APU. Or at the very least, Zen APU that can trail last gen low end discretes and have decent video decoders.

yep. That's why I said, desktops appeal to those who game. For true budget users who just use the pc occasionally or for general purpose work they will go for laptop. And for gamers, with many games being so large in size nowadays, it's likely they will add more storage over time
Ah now I getting you; I was thinking more of the niche users (e.g. people who need performance on the go, DIY NAS users)

Yeah, talk about that feeling. I want to pull trigger liao but still cannot cos both sides not ready yet. Now Kaby Lake quite disappointing too, so have to wait for Cannonlake where they may finally bake in TB3 support into the chip instead of using a separate Alpine Ridge chipset like USB3 in the early days.

To complicate things further, there's laptop GPUs to consider too! Like what will truly happen to the MXM format due to the 10 series fiasco that hit MSI very badly, how would Vegas compete with Volta e.t.c. (I not that worried for desktop in this case cos GPU easy to swap. Laptops are a whole lot different ball game altogether)

Intel looks to have an impressive value for money processor based on its new Kaby Lake architecture available, with the new Pentium G4560 costing just $64 - and it competes against processors worth 3x as much.



The site has a 'total rating' of application and games at 1080p, where you can see that the Pentium G4560 and Core i5-2500K are neck and neck. When gaming at both 720p and 1080p, the new Kaby Lake-based Pentium G4560 beats the Pentium G4400, FX-6300 and A10-7890K - while just 5% slower than the more expensive Core i3-6100, and Core i5-2500K processors. In normal Windows use and synthetic benchmarks, the new Kaby Lake CPU is only 3% slower than the Core i3-6100, and just 1% slower than the $270 processor - the Core i5-2500K, which is a huge testament to the improvements within the Kaby Lake architecture.

once u overclock i5-2500k u can see it going much higher up...

sorry to revive this thread but interested in the G4560 at it's value. Currently using i5-3570k, if let's say, want to build a new system, is it okay to consider this? But I heard forums saying that this cpu's limitation can only support up to gtx 1050 or 1060 and will bottleneck higher gpu? Can anyone advice? Thanks!

or should consider kabylake's i5 series?
