It's sad AMD doesn't have the resources to develop a custom SoC like this one. Imagine R5 1400 instead of the Intel quad-core... the price would have been 150$ cheaper at least and a killer deal for laptops.
One step at a time. They don't have the resources to fight on all fronts at the same time.

While they theoretically could make it on their own, they are using Intel's money for all the design/engineering. If it's a flop commercially they lose nothing. They still gain the experience though. And this is a step towards the endgame. A SOC with CPU/GPU/Memory all stacked on one 3D design (eventually).

This is truly a marvel of engineering. This much CPU+GPU horsepower to footprint ratio was science fiction not too long ago.
Good job Intel and AMD on this coop
It is very impressive but don't forget about the Xbox One X chip, that has significantly high GPU specs: 2560 vs 1536 Stream Processors, 160 vs 96 TMUs but ok no RAM.

The specs on the PS5 should really be something special, we will be in the realms of 7nm + Zen 2 + Navi + HBM3.

nVidia fan by any chance?

TBF, we are talking about a single chip solution that was designed to be fairly cheap plus, your 980ti is only 23% faster than this 'ultra low-end garbage'.

That 23% score is for the Xbox One X Vs 980ti, the Xbox's chip is more more powerful than this new Hades Canyon chip from Intel.
