I won't dispute the binning angle. Look at the desktop competition. What is Intel pushing in that space that will beat a 2000Mhz iGPU /8cu vega implementation? 32eu Xe isn't going to do it. For competitive reasons, they likely binned to get as many good clocking CPU cores to face off against Intel's 65 watt processors. In a 35watt setup, it probably seriously outperforms the competing T class processors as well.Even with intel coming up with a faster IGP on DDR4, the 4350G being awfull even compared to the 3200G, the dGPU market being a HUGE mess and rumors pointing out at the posibility of 12 RDNA2 on RMB(how quickly they forgot about giving priority to CPU cores eh?) there are people that still want to argue with me on this, amazing.
Looks like no one would like an APU with RX560 level gpu today.
And yeah, decreasing frecuency is weird, the 5700U can do 4.3Ghz and 1.9Ghz on 25W max cTDP, but the 5700G cant do 4.6Ghz and 2.1Ghz at 65W... come on who belives that? we all know that the turbo system is able to deal with that.
Its binning, simple as that.
For the DIY crowd, we'll probably adjust the power and thermals limits and let it run wild.
