Whoa, 2.5GbE? That makes these things incredibly attractive. Wonder what pricing will be like.

Whoa this is interesting! Great for businesses, or even people who want basic "Desktop" to work from home. Hopefully the power brick isn't huge and of good quality, 90W seems like a lot

The feature-set is really nice, hopefully that doesn't translate into too high of a price.

I'd really like to get one of these for a HTPC, seems like it'd be great as a N64 /GameCube emulator and to transcode full blu-ray rips from my server, only bummer is that my Netgear XS728T 10GBase-T switch isn't multigig capable (either 10 gig or 1gig), and although 1gig probably more than enough, I'd like to use the 2.5GBase-T port or even throw a USB 3.2Gen2 to 5GBase-T adapter on there.... Hmmm, might have to breakdown and buy a small 8 to 12 port multigig switch or just do what I was originally planning and make a diy HTPC.... Just really wanted to own one of these APUs and love the SFF

Also with the 4600U had the same amount of CUs as the 4800U, I definitely dont need 8cores and 16 threads but would like to have the same graphical horsepower on the 6core model.

Do you own a [rare] 2.5GBase-T or multi-gig switch?

This thing's probably super expensive right now, especially with zen2 4xxx APU demand's being sky high atm.

Sounds like it might be enough for Wii U and PS3 emulation as well (My 2500u already is about 75% of the way there typically. Just need to scale down resolution a little). Maybe even Switch emulation once there is enough compatibility with the drivers.

Actually, the 4800U has way more graphical horsepower than the 4600U (55% more), it has 8 vs 6 CU clocked at 1750 vs 1500 MHz.

So it should be sold this year?
Btw. ASUS PN50 is sold already, it also has 4800U, but does not feature Wi-Fi6, DisplayPort and it downclock 3200MHz RAM. Wondering if this PC too.
