8 cores on a laptop is like 3 engines on a pushbike, It's really unnecessary and I don't see why you would want more than 4-6 on a laptop.
because i will be needing it for the next 5-6 years..... engineering student... CAD and other stuff , so i was hoping to like "future proof" to some extend since software are going to multi-core in the future. :
this is 2nd gen zen so if they can decrease it from ~60watt to 15 watt surely the higher core count ones will have similar wattage decrease.
I was wondering this aswell.
Maybe not for a laptop (or maybe it can be a great workstation laptop, like some intel with xeon) but this should be a must for desktop APU computer.
Hope this dream come true some day.
