If you're after a good mobile processor (as of late 2019) then definitely check this thing out. Its a midrange 3rd gen Ryzen processor with 4 hyperthreaded cores running up to 3.7GHz, and bundled with integrated Vega graphics - both good things. There is a 3750H top-tier chip but it only has slightly higher clocks so unless its part of an overall package there is no real reason to go for it over the 3550H. My 3550 is inside an Asus 'TUF' laptop with a GTX1650 and 16GB DDR4 and these seem to pair nicely with the processor, holding down modern AAA titles at 1080p and high detail levels with ease. A stronger graphics card wouldn't be an issue, something like the 1660Ti for example, and that would make a really nice pairing for a reasonably compact and well priced laptop. Sure, its not a six or eight core beast but as a 4c8t part it will hold its own just fine for its intended usage. Overall I can't fault this processor. [Nov '19 boingk]
