    Nvidia doesn’t make CPUs, which is what this headline is referring to. The headline is still a bit surprising because Intel’s Linux support is first-class, but yeah, there’s more than a million Steam Decks out there in the wild now, I imagine that accounts for a large chunk of this stat

      For me, choosing AMD in my newest laptop over Intel boiled down to iGPU. In previous years I had an Intel with their iGPU, which was underwhelming. For the next one, I chose Intel with a discrete Nvidia card, which was a mistake due to a power drain, proprietary drivers, and all-around hustle. For the first time in decades, I chose AMD CPU, finally lifting away the resentment of anything ATI-related from decades ago. I must say that I am immensely happy with the choice, speed, reliability, power consumption, thermal control, and the iGPU (Rembrandt).
