I was really surprised when I saw this rumor. It would be so tone deaf, they are supposed to be the consumer's friend but then sandbagging as soon as they have any advantage goes against this. Though I would have to forgive them, it is 2020 after all.
I too would not assume Intel will stay still, but they probably aren't going to have anything amazing before 2021 either so AMD is probably safe for now.
I could be wishful thinking but it's really hard to predict thing with the bad global economy. AMD will be safe till 2021/2022. Have you looked at the Ryzen 4600u/4800u Laptops, They are no where to be seen and i can't find an good model for 4700u. They all either have crappy screen, cooling issues, soldered ram (so 8GB Ram) or bad keyboard. The 4800h/hs are also hit and miss products. The best one is like the zephyrs g14 but that's more than i want to pay for an mainly work pc. It's really not an great launch. I am more inclined to wait for ultrabook with Intel Tigerlake at this point. All i need is ultrabook with CPU and next gen IGP stronger than my current Alienware 15r2 (6700hq/970m 3GB) that can run multiple monitors (including 4k). It won't be gaming as I have the 3950X with 3080Ti/Big Navi for that.
The Ever Ongoing Build. 3950X. X570 Hero VIII, 32GB GSkill Trident Z 4000mhz, Seasonic Prime Titanium 1000Watt, 1TB 960 Pro, 1TB WD SN750.
