AMD's Ryzen 5 2500U sports 4 cores and 8 threads with Radeon Vega 8 Integrated Graphics. The 4 cores and 8 threads is standard amongst new laptops with processors such as the i5-8250U from the blue team. What stands out is the powerful Vega 8 Graphics.It is about 50-100% better than the the i5-8250U's UHD 620 graphics, meaning it can be used for some light gaming on the go. However, despite the powerful specs on paper, adoption of AMD Ryzen mobile processors has been really slow, with very few models out there. Hopefully, AMD's 7nm mobile APU coming in 2019 will see more widespread adoption. [Aug '18 geistrucker]
