Currently there are two IGP for the Ryzen APU. 2500 comes with VEGA 8 which has 8 Compute Units or 512 stream processors. Performance of this VEGA 8 is around 20% slower than a dedicated MX150. Ryzen 2700U comes with VEGA 10 IGP, having 10 CU or 640 Stream processors. That performs around 10% to 13% slower than MX150.

Here at Best Buy. First impression is this has a really good build, it feels solid with tight tolerances. The case and exterior is made of mostly metals/alloys and feels like a quality product. The keyboard is obviously plastic, and the touchscreen is likely plastic too. I doubt it's gorilla glass but you never know. The hinges are metal and the new HP logo looks awesome. There are chrome accents throughout but it's subtle and not overly flashy.

The screen is definitely IPS, it says so right on the computer itself! It looks great too. The small bezels around the top and sides of the screen look modern but the bottom bezel is a little bigger. From what I can tell, the LCD and the touchscreen are laminated together and don't show much of a gap at all. I guess this is what they refer to as edge to edge.

This laptop is a lot thinner than what I imagined. It's kinda nice to see an AMD based laptop with such a nice fit and finish. The backlit keyboard only has an ON or OFF setting. The fan at the rear blows out a good amount of hot air but it's nothing too loud that I can tell yet.

Currently the computer is recovering from a Windows installation fail. I haven't had the chance to get inside the OS. Myself and a few other random people were looking at it and may have corrupted the updates that we're underway so I started a recovery. I'm just waiting for it to finish.

Oh and because I was the first person to specifically come in for this Ryzen laptop the sales guy and I started talking about it. As we were talking, he hyped it up and a girl literally bought one right there and then. She could've bought anything else, but she went with the Ryzen x360! Lol kinda funny and ironic as she was pretty clueless about computers but because of my influence on these people, she bought it and is probably the first Ryzen laptop owner in the world. Lol ok maybe just Chicago but still, how lucky is she?!

By the way, just found an interesting news about this specific model which will make all of you happy, especially if you are planning to get this one.

AMD has communicated to PCWorld that Envy 360 is going to be star of the Ryzen APU based laptops because it will be having Mobile XFR, causing the Processor to use higher boost frequency than the rest as HP has provided bigger cooling solution on Envy X360. I guess that is the reason that this 2-in-1 is actually a bit heavier than a standard 2-in-1 laptop.

What's the real world performance of the GPU on these? Can't seem to find any actual third party benchmarks online.

Very enticing deal... but will wait until ryzen laptops saturate the market. At best early 1st quarter of 2018.
I think you are talking about the 45W models coming for true gaming laptops, right?

Not a gamer, more video/photo centric, but I would need a decent gaming card for my needs.

For photo and Video editing, yu will get pretty good performance. The IGP has enough oomph to accelerate the Photoshop or Premiere Pro GPU plugins and the Processor is more powerful than Intel's 8th Gen Quad Core i5-8250U, specially in Mult-threaded tasks. It can perform better than a 45W TDP i5-6300HQ and near to i5-7300HQ

Yes and it perform better than i5-8250U in almost all mult-threaded benchmarks as per the preliminary reviews.

Nice, Sury! This is an extremely well rounded unit. Outside of those who despise HP or absolutely must have a pre-installed SSD, this checks nearly all the boxes for a great 15.6" 2-in-1 at $600.

Actually surprised at how much stuff this offers for the price. At least or one two of the following features is typically missing - Expandable RAM up to 32GB, active pen support, backlit keyboard with numberpad, a decently sized 55.8 WHr battery, sub 5lbs on a 15.6" 2-in-1, SD reader and HDMI 2.0 in addition to USB-C 3.1 with USB-C fast charging. This seems too good, there's got to be a trade off...

Any idea what material the frame is made out of?
