AMD has just announced their Ryzen™ 4000-series mobile processors with up to eight cores and 16 threads; however, they lack PCIe 4.0 which has been included in AMD Ryzen™ desktop processors for two years since generation two, we are now in generation three.

I would like to be able to use PCIe 4.0 storage and accelerators in a bespoke Fedora/RHEL laptop; however, I will have to find a way to use an AMD Ryzen™ 9/Threadripper™ desktop processor or an AMD Epyc™ 7002 server processor.

Intel is further behind with no processors available with PCIe 4.0 whilst IBM has had PCIe 4.0 for four years.

Apple made the wrong decision to migrate from POWER to Intel x64.
