I don't have the answer either, but my gut feel is that the Ryzen 3 is definitely faster even though it is missing 2 physical core to compete. Even though the Pentium Silver chips have 4 cores, they are typically limited to run at 10W, shared between the CPU and GPU. Assuming equal power rating, the Ryzen core will still be quite a bit faster, running alongside with a fairly powerful Vega 3 GPU. You can get a good indication by checking say an Intel i3 vs a Pentium Silver comparison.
Oh r u saying that a Ryzen 3 is as fast as an Intel i3?

Ryzen 3 2200U is more or less faster than i3.
CPU is one aspect but the VEGA graphics is definitely better than Intel UHD.

Hey, just updated to the latest version of Chrome (73.0.3683.75). That seems to solve the facebook and youtube video problems. No longer need to disable hardware acceleration or the ANGLE D3D9 workarounds.

I also suspected could be chrome issue not graphic driver.
For those who after update still encounter issue, suggest
reinstall Chrome from fresh.

Which is why I don't bother enabling hardware acceleration. I am one that don't update driver if its working fine for me. However Chrome updates automatically, which tends to break or cause issues from time to time.

True, same for me my Chrome the auto update is disabled.
I only update once a while or when there is a big version.

Guys ,
I'm thinking of getting a E585 / A485.

Want to customize it. So a few questions.

In A484 1st and 2nd hard disk are SSD. What's the difference between 2 SSD vs 1x Bigger capactity SSD?

Is A485 the better model and better wifi chips?

A485 is the better model not only the WIFI, the chassis,
ports and etc. are are much better.
A485 also have docking port if you intend to get a docking station.

SSD wise recommended just get a m.2 SSD minimum 128GB for OS
will do.
No really recommended to get a big SSD for data storage, a HDD
will be much better over SSd.

Yes but none in local stores.
Lenovo there are a few models and Asus FX505DY at the moment.
No Thinkpad based on the newer chip.
