While I get the push for zero-power dGPU on the desktop to provide battery life, I do wonder if 2 RDNA2 CUs for laptops isn't forcing gaming output down the PCI-E bus or installing a display mux when actually what you want is a mobile dGPU rework to make them even more power-efficient when driven at low speeds. Rather than dropping a different arch [vs nVidia or RDNA3 likely dGPUs] onto the CPU side of the equation that always has to be powered up & has barely any perf. videocardz.com/newz/amd-ryzen-
