We do not know if these CU are faster until someone does a 1:1 comparison. As far as we know is the same gen. AMD was talking about being faster in those 15W TDP, due to higher boost and DDR4-3200 instead of 2400.Isn't that last part the key. All of this complaining about loss of CU's . But we haven't even seen anything. It could be faster, or slightly faster. But it doesn't matter here because the number of the thing no one but one person is actually watching noticed went down. CU count should be per architecture comparison. We know these CU's are faster so why count them before you know the actual performance numbers.
