I wonder if the chip is MS only. While disappointed it isn't some kind of new 7nm chip, at least we have more options. The problem is that I haven't heard good things about Surface hardware. My former co-workers went thru 3 Surface devices (2 and 3 era).
EDIT: watching MooresLawIsDead on YT and linking the OC3D article on the Ryzen chip.
