    XMG here, ask me anything! And to my fellow readers from Europe: XMG CORE series will be in stock with *both* i7-11800H and Ryzen 7 5800H starting this month. The AMD version was actually launched early this year but never saw any supply apart from a few samples. Things are getting better: we see more AMD Ryzen supply coming to our doorstep night now. A lot of 5800H is going to end up in XMG CORE while most of the 5900HX supply will go into XMG NEO. If you want to know more about this topic, use your favorite search engine and search for "Supply Update on AMD, Intel & NVIDIA and related silicon for 2H/2021" on the XMG_gg subreddit. Until then, I'm here to answer any questions about life, the universe and everything XMG. Just reply directly to this comment! :-) // Tom

    Hi! I was considering buying your laptop three years ago but chose another manufacturer. The reason was simple: you didn’t offer any white AND powerful machines. All of them were black or dark grey. I like white machines with white keyboards. My current laptop is a bit too slow for my current tasks, and I’m looking for another one. Do you have any new white or silver designs? Something like MSI Sword?

    My laptop motherboard recently crapped out. It was old, dell precision. I want a new machine that is durable, best battery life possible, daily driver(I dont have a desktop), and not just good but really good for gaming, preferably without all the unicorn puke type stuff. Just simple design, 15" screen, doesn't have to be 4k. I'm hoping to get rtx3000 series gpu, and Ryzen CPU. I don't play eSports titles, mostly want to play beautiful single player rpgs like horizon, rdr2, that sort of thing. No streaming, editing, anything like that. Would also like to eventually get a vr setup. What would be your personal choice for the best laptop at under $2500 us? I'm a little overwhelmed right now in my research. Thanks!

    ​@adammujaj We have a few models with ANSI keyboard options. With laptops where the keyboard is not modular it's a big logistical challenge to have both ANSI and ISO. For example on XMG CORE, let's assume we already have 4 versions (Intel Core 10th Gen, 11th Gen, Ryzen 4000, Ryzen 5000) multiplied by 2 display for each (FHD and WQHD), multiplied by 2 display sizes (15" and 17"). That's already 16 SKUs that we have to forecast, plan, manage to keep in stock and manage spare parts for. Now, if you want ANSI keyboard as well, you have to multiply by 2 again, arriving at 32 SKUs. But the ANSI SKUs would only represent about 5% of our total sales volume, creating a huge stock-keeping overhead for very little additional revenue. Especially in a year like 2021 with supply bottlenecks and very long lead-times (the time between placing the order at the ODM and product arriving in our warehouse), such overhead is impossible to manage. ANSI keyboards are easy for us in laptops where the keyboard can be easily assembled/removed from the top. But this modular design has downsides too: more z-height for the keyboard means thicker laptops or less room for internals and cooling. It also makes the laptop look not as nice and seamless as often desired. Even for laptops with non-modular keyboards, we also do ANSI keyboards sometimes in laptops that only have one or two single SKUs if those laptops have a high volume potential due to relatively low price. This applies to VIA 15 Pro (TUXEDO Pulse 15) and - starting in September - a special ANSI SKU of VISION 14 (TUXEDO InfinityBook Pro 14 Gen6). So, yeah, we're trying our best to support some ANSI SKUs, but we won't be able to do it for all laptops. By the way, I myself switch between ANSI and ISO all the time. My desktop keyboard has ANSI but most of my laptops are ISO. It does not really slow me down, and as you can probably imagine, I'm typing a lot. You can get US/ISO layout and you won't be missing out on anything. ISO has the same amount of keys like ANSI plus one extra. If you live in Germany, there might be some value in just getting used to it. ISO is here to stay. // Tom

    I'm not buying AMD's 7nm marketing strategy, yea maybe some of the circuits in its die is in 7nm, maybe a quarter of it is in 7nm but I doubt that half of the die or greater are in 7nm, to be honest if AMD achieved a complete 7nm, Intel would never be able to come close as this, running in 14nm, if AMD is staying true to their words their chip would definitely be running at almost twice the speed compared to Intel considering the number of cores and threads it has, and also the price should nearly be cut in half compared to intel, but as you can see Intel offers a much better price on some of its chips, If ever AMD will continue faking it I guess Intel 12th gen would be able to take the throne of monopoly again.

    ricecripseez14 hari yang lalu

    For anybody knowledgeable about this topic, I'm so curious to hear any answers to this question: Around 6:12 in the video, Linus mentions that AMD has made compromises that appear to have been wise ones. I assume he is talking about the power saving of the AMD Ryzen processors here. However, he also says that this is true "at least that's true for a machine running an RTX 3060 rather than a 3070 or 3080." Is it implied here that this is likely to be different with higher power GPUs, or is this just a "that's all we know" statement? I'm considering getting a Lenovo Legion 7 Gen 6 (AMD) vs a Legion 7i Gen 6 (Intel). The GPU would be a 3070 either way, and after reading a whole lot about this and watching this video I honestly cannot decide which is better. I've seen some indications that AMD may have some issues utilizing memory as effectively, which could compromise performance slightly in certain games. Not sure. If anybody has any advice on one vs the other in combo with an RTX 3070 GPU, I'd really appreciate it.

  60. S F

    S F14 hari yang lalu

    Yes. If you are a pure gamer, then Intel's version is better. If you do daily work too then no questions asked, AMD is better. There are literally hundreds of videos on youtube comparing 11800H to 5800H in games with 3070 too. The legion is a very good choice because they provide the highest powered GPUs. Thus your CPU is going to matter less.

    So... under fewer bus connections, AMD still runs a reasonably close gap... Meanwhile, with double the performance of bus connections, Intel was unable to truly widen the gap... In the end, what are you using your gaming laptop for? Gonna be honest, save your money, go with the AMD variant. As for Thunderbolt versus USB-C, I'm sick of proprietary connectors. Firewire, all the way back to things like Beta Max tapes. Intel should release Thunderbolt to the group that handles USB, and just make the USB-CT or USB-T the next standard.

I have buy CREATIVE G6 7.1 HD Gaming, i use it, and sometime my sound crash (lag etc) with my Ryzen 9 3900X it's just because of that. ["Pour résumer, si l'on en croit les déclarations de Creative, ces problèmes de son seraient uniquement liés à l'architecture des processeurs AMD Ryzen et à l'Infinity Fabric dont les problèmes de latence ont d'ailleurs souvent été évoqués par certains sites spécialisés même si cela s'est grandement arrangé sur les dernières générations de CPU Ryzen. Les pilotes des cartes Sound Blaster et le système d'exploitation Windows 10 ne seraient donc pas en cause. Que l'on prenne cette déclaration pour argent comptant ou non, il semble donc qu'aucun correctif ne verra le jour de la part de Creative pour qui le dossier semble clos ni même chez AMD via un nouveau BIOS (AGESA). La seule solution serait de désactiver (ou à minima de réduire) tout overclocking qu'il soit manuel ou bien effectué automatiquement par certains réglages de la carte mère sans que l'on en ait d'ailleurs toujours bien conscience. N'oublions pas de rappeler que le fait de forcer les ports PCI Express à la version 3.0 de la norme au lieu de la version 4.0 permet aussi de résoudre ces problèmes avec les cartes sons Sound Blaster. Il faut croire qu'en PCIe 3.0, les contraintes sont moindres et n'entraînent pas d'erreurs dans l'interface Infinity Fabric."] That why 5:01 you see that :x maybe
