I cannot find the max ram for the ryzen on AMD's website or anywhere else specified. Are you sure it's 32 GB, I saw laptops with this CPU and 64GB ram?

AMD: more cores, but comes with more heat. Good GPU. Intel: fewer cores, less heat. Better GPU. Why did I buy Intel? The GPU performance and temperatures are more important for laptops. Both CPUs provide way more power than most games would need. So six cores is nice, but pretty much overkill for a small laptop. For a desktop, AMD would be my absolute favorite. The raw power of the new AMD CPUS is simply awesome. However, the tested CPUs are for laptops.

Most of the laptops that have these processors will surely come with discrete graphics. So the iGPU will literally just work as video output. So Intel having better iGPU here doesn't really benefit that much. They should've just gone with a worse iGPU and added 2 more cores.

Wal, Exactly the igpu is what handles the displays, so if you go with the AMD one you'll have freesync, but if you choose Intel, it won't matter if you have a 3090 ti or no discrete card at all, you won't any adaptive sync.

Mecso, Just found out that now intel iGPUs have adaptive sync too.
