Because their chip have 8 cores, they have no reason to disable 4 cores on best bins.

Which is industry standard, and the configurable TDP is clearly listed on their web site as 10W to 25W, Intel does the same, BTW.

And the measured clock speed is actually 100MHz higher, rather than 300MHz lower which was the case for the Intel in the Anantech review:

They can do in 10W, if the laptop manufacturer configure it's configurable TDP to it, but the clock speeds will be lower.

Intel allow this kind of configuration too.

"neck to neck"

Sure, both are listed as 45W TDP.

Laptops don't even have coolers on top of the CPU, rather there is heat pipe to a better positioned cooler, the power density of the chip makes no difference.

And what the hell base clocks matter for CPUs capable of turbo?

> and turbo

What's the evidence that turbo clock would be higher if there was less cores? The 4.2GHz of the U series is achieved when 7 of the cores are inactive, how exactly inactive cores affects the clock of the active cores?

According to Anandtech review of Ryzen 3700X, the power of inactive cores are in the order of 0.1W, how exactly this compromises the active core?

More bullshit with no evidence, now against an unrelated company just because you think you are defending Intel by bombing "civilians".

More bullshit, and double bullshit this time, where are those +5GHz laptops? What's the actual performance of them? What's the evidence relating the subjective concept of responsiveness to GHz?

> Still the Intel decision to stay on 14nm is all about volume

Intel decision to stay on 14nm is because their 10nm is crappy, confirmed by their own executives and their 7nm isn't ready yet.

> Intel can supply a pile of SKUs to OEMs,

Have you been in a cave for the last two years and didn't hear anything about Intel's supply issues?
