Competitivity of RMB confirmed since even 5000 series are more efficient than Intel s ADL, so all comparisons graphs published by Intel are shameless lies...

Crap. I have a Renoir, and I just got an M1 Max because that is the only way to walk in and directly get 32 GB RAM.

Yet now I am frequently looking at what Rembrandt laptop I would buy. I am fearful of coming across an H-series with no dGPU and a nice screen. I may spend money I need for other things.

Can I join a Chipaholics Anonymous somewhere? I need help!

Mini-PC with 6900HS tested up to 75W:
very interesting product but unless these will be significantly less expensive, i'm not sure why anyone would want to buy a mini PC over a similarly priced laptop where you also get a keyboard, monitor and true mobility?

They will probably cost less than a similarly-equipped lappie.

HTPC?
Even yesterday bought fancy notebook permanently hooked into all the cables sitting below your TV puts out vibes of DYI DIY MacGyver "carpet tape fixes all" solution.
As was already mentioned, it is cheaper and actually smaller than notebook with possibly superior IO, cooling solution (e.g. it can be thicker vs. notebook without raising the eyebrows) and fit for purpose of actually sitting in the shelf instead to be moved around.

When it comes to weight itself... HP ProDesk 405 G6 (Zen2) or G8 (Zen3) + 15.6" portable monitor is around 2-2.2Kg (depending on monitor) with a lightweight power brick.

AMD Rembrandt SOC Die size is 210mm^2, it has been officially released by AMD, much bigger than Cezanne but due to RDNA2.
I don't know if I'd call a 16.7% increase "much bigger". Besides the GPU, the uncore is likely larger too. On the other hand, Cezanne has a lot of dark silicon thanks to literally being Renoir with a haphazard Zen 3 CCX transplant.

Cezanne is stuck in the middle now. Between Renoir and Rembrandt, there's not much reason for it to exist anymore.
