Ultraportables - i7 10th Gens are rolling out

In October 2019, the Core i7-10710U is the top chip in the ultraportable space.

Laptops with these chips are just now dropping on Amazon CAN and USA in anticipation of a Black Friday sale.

This will mean great deals on the Ryzen 3700U and i7 8th and 9th gen laptops.

Thought I'd share.

This monster i7-10710U destroys the Ryzen 3700U. Performance delta is 80%.
And price delta will be the same, or more :)
But ultimately what matters most is, would the CPU be able to run full speed for more than a minute in an ultra portable before the heat throttling kicks in?

The real innovation is the lack of power and heat associated with this performance.

It's a massive leap from last gen.

As for the price, Trudeau has ensured lube is widely available in Canada so you should be fine.
