Now we're hearing about AMD's new quad-core APU with Vega GPU technology, the Ryzen 5 2500U. AMD is expected to launch its new Raven Ridge APUs in the coming months, but it looks like the first Ryzen 2000 series processor has already been tested and rocks 4C/8T of CPU goodness, and looks like a mobile SKU.

The purported Ryzen 5 2500U is a 4C/8T processor with Vega GPU tech, but it's not something that's going to be a mobile gaming powerhouse. What's interesting here is that we're already seeing Vega GPU tech in AMD's upcoming APUs... now show me a higher-end one that handles 1080p 60FPS in a single package.
