Does anyone have recent APU experience?
I only tried an APU once, on an HTPC I built in ~2014. it was a Kaveri based A10-7850k.
It wasn't bad, but I found that even with very good cooling, the GPU and CPU would step on eachother.
I can't remember the details now, but it was like if the GPU was in use, the CPU would not be allowed to boost clocks, regardless of temps, or something like that.
I never figured out if it was a power limit thing, or just an unsophisticated limit, I tested with some extreme coolers on full blast which kept temps low, and it still exhibited the same behavior.
I wonder if the new ones behave like this.
Come to think of it, my better half has a Ryzen5 2400G. It is a t least a little newer, I could do some testing with that. But it is built into a Streacom FC5 fanless case. Those are a royal pain in the buttocks to assemble the cooling heatpipes on, so I am probably not going to pick it apart for fun...
