    AMD released their Ryzen APU that have have integrated Vega GPU
    Nice little CPU, it sold out within a few hours of release.
    I have a feeling these CPUs will be taken by miners too since it has a Vega GPU integrated.

    That's why AMD is now lending those people older model CPUs for free to boot the system and update their BIOS. Cool move.

    AMD is giving Far Cry 5 free with prebuilt systems containing their latest GPUs
    Far Cry 5 | AMD

    Thanks to miners, AMD will not offer free games for standalone GPU purchases, assuming a gamer can get a hold of one

    Acer will release the first full AMD gaming notebook with a Ryzen CPU and Vega GPU. Hopefully more manufactures do the same thing since the market is full of Intel/Nvidia models

    Predator Helios 500 (PH517-61): A Mobile Gaming Beast with the Latest AMD Ryzen Processors and Radeon RX Graphics

    Built for graphic-intensive AAA titles and live streaming, the Predator Helios 500 (PH517-61) is a gaming beast. It features up to a 2nd Gen AMD Ryzen™ 7 2700 processor1 with 8 cores and 16 threads, and AMD Radeon™ RX Vega56 graphics with 8 GB of second-generation high-bandwidth memory (HBM2). Top-notch visuals are delivered on bright, vibrant FHD (144 Hz) or 4K UHD IPS 17.3-inch displays supporting Radeon™ FreeSync technology for blur- and tear-free gameplay.

    The Predator Helios 500 stays cool with two of Acer’s proprietary AeroBlade™ 3D metal fans, and five heat pipes that distribute cool air to the machine’s key components while simultaneously releasing hot air. Fan speed can be controlled and customized through the award-winning PredatorSense app, which can also allow users to define macros for the five hotkeys. One set of hotkeys are pre-defined to quickly launch Mixer, Microsoft’s next-generation live-streaming service, where gamers can broadcast their gameplay or watch live streams of the hottest gameplay. Two speakers, a subwoofer, Acer TrueHarmony™ and Waves MaxxAudio® technology deliver superior sound quality made immersive with Waves Nx® head-tracking technology for a hyper-realistic 3D audio experience.

    People have been able to make AMD's Vega power efficient by undervolting the GPU.
    A Look at RX Vega 64 Efficiency

    this should make gamers optimistic once AMD revises the chip.

    AMD really needs to push motherboard makers to make more interesting boards for their processors. These manufactures are releasing the same thing or variations of it :/
