Glad to see AMD back in the performance game with the same low price strategy.

I still think the future (at least in the mac world) will be fast but extremely efficient ARM cpus with dedicated hardware acceleration chips (like  Apples T2, Afterburner, Neural chips) that will accelerate things like H.265 decoding/encoding, ProRes encoding/decoding, and Neural net algorithms they are starting to use for things like object removal, stabilization, and 3D tracking.

A MBP with the T2 chip just chews through 5K 200Mbit/s HEVC footage from a GH5. Future cameras, I think, will be replacing H.264 with HEVC for a multitude of reasons. You almost need hardware accelerating encoding/decoding to play back that footage and edit it in real time.
