AMD Zen 2 laptop

AMD Zen 2 laptops are a thing, and they’re blazingly fast.

I just bought the HP Envy x360 which has a 6 core AMD Ryzen 5 4500U. Measuring some real world compiles it’s comfortably two and half times faster than my year old Intel-based Thinkpad T480s (which has 4 cores but 8 threads, and cost at least twice as much).

  1. Sounds cool, however I can’t get into a new laptop with less than 32G of RAM. My X220 has 16 and it’s already seven ish years old.
