I'm eyeing this ultra portable laptop and curious if anyone had any experience with AMD Ryzen APU's and Houdini?

Maybe this helps:

It's nice that AMD puts quad cores into it's mobile solutions, in comparison to Intel which are mostly duo cores.
I have no idea how the Vega hardware will perform with Houdini….

Thank you!

I was looking at those previously and then checked the unit out in the store and personally I liked it a lot for an ultra mobile unit.

Was curious if people have had any experience with Ryzen CPU's/Vega GPU's/APU's with Houdini on Windows and/or Linux.
