Every hardware eg. routers, Nvidia chip, WiFi 3, Intel/AMD cpu etc also has security vulnerabilitiesNot a laptop board but desktop:
ASRock X570 Phantom Gaming-ITX/TB3
anyway Thunderbold is a big security desaster and specially dangerous on laptops
TB flaw doesn't affect latest intel cpu like the Icelake. I believe anything that comes after it will not be affected. Also,Sure. USB too
But some has hardware design flaws which can't be fixed. And Thunderbold and USB fall into that category
4000 chips have better performance per watt then 10th gen Intel.AMD laptops have usually been cheaper than comparable Intels, but with poorer performance with the mobile chips. I've also read that Linux works better with Intel chips w/ integrated graphics, though I have not had the chance to run any Linux distro on AMD for comparison.
Not anymore with Ryzen 4000 series chips ( exception being gaming). some of them can give you more than 10 hours of battery backup. If you want Linux to run without hassles choose something with AMD graphic card and not NVIDIA. Only pop os installer has builtin support for Nvidia drivers for installation media (i do not mean the driver support after installation, which every linux versions has support.) The problem with a linux distro without having closed source proprietary Nvidia drivers is that you will need to enforce the open source driver while booting from the live usb media, which is a pain at times and Without user intervention you will not get GUI while booting. come on Nvidia, its high time you should properly support linux and open source community.AMD laptops have usually been cheaper than comparable Intels, but with poorer performance with the mobile chips.

Why did Asus use a mx 350 doesn't it cost them near 30$ to put that GPU ?For instance, Asus AMD powered devices Ryzen 5 4500 processor performance better that Apple Mac Book.
If you are looking to purchase a new Laptop, I recommend this device.
Amd has Apu chips which has integrated graphics.Intel chips still have better single core performance, so Intel will be faster at certain tasks.
Many AMD chips do not come with integrated graphics, so you need to go for a GPU and all the headache involved with its setup and updates and potential compatibility issues. But intel always offers you good ol' integrated graphics and that's good enough for the non-gamers in most cases. For instance, Linus Torvald says that Intel integrated graphics is good enough for him. That means it's sure good enough for me.
Not per clock cycle though .Intel chips still have better single core performance, so Intel will be faster at certain tasks.
For traditional productivity tasks, Intel with integrated graphics can be a good choice. If I was a gamer I would go down the Ryzen road.Not per clock cycle though .
Anyway gaming is dependent among so many factors .
Anyway games use more then one cores nowadays and older ones can use more cores via something like DXVK.
Intel has really interesting prototypes though mostly AI related that will crush Nvidia and amd badly in that segment(more cash then consumer stuff).
But wait 3-5 years and Intel might crush and CPU in every budget segment as well.
The current integrated graphics of both amd and Intel are too weak for some productivity tasks .For traditional productivity tasks, Intel with integrated graphics can be a good choice. If I was a gamer I would go down the Ryzen road.
If you are not a professional fps Gamer then the minimal frame rate advantage offered by Intel processor over ryzen is immaterial. Anything over 144 fps on a 144hzs monitor is imperceptible by mere mortals like us. ( For me even a 60hzs display is dam good enough, I can't even last 10 minutes in doom..I find happiness in playing witcher series and elder scrolls) So for those casual gamers and semi professional ones the more rounded Ryzen offerings with something like 2070ti would be sufficient. Apart from that the bundled cpu cooler on Intel sucks bigtime. You need to add a 30 to 40 dollars to buy a decent after market cooler if you intend to keep your cpu under thermals.The current integrated graphics of both amd and Intel are too weak for some productivity tasks .
But for CPU you should go for a cheap Xeon combo from AliExpress or an ammd ryzen depending on budget/ usage (Xeon have lower power efficiency then ryzen especially older gens ).
