    Users on Reddit are beginning to post benchmarks for the Ryzen 5 2500U.

    [url<]https://i.imgur.com/LOCjX2S.png[/url<] [url<]https://browser.geekbench.com/v4/cpu/4830409[/url<] And for comparison, here's the same HP Envy x360 except with an i7-8550U in it: [url<]http://browser.geekbench.com/v4/cpu/4823747[/url<] So it looks like modern Ryzen 5 Laptop chips and i7-Coffee Lake chips are roughly the same speed as an Ivy Bridge Desktop (i7-3770). These benchmarks still have a lot of variance, so I'd prefer if TechReport or other big sites performed a more "official" benchmark. But its looking like the Ryzen Laptop chips are competitive (still a bit slower than Intel, but its not as bad as it used to be)

    I actually have some spicy guac in the fridge, so I can fulfill at least half of my obligation.

    You have forgotten pickles’ secret weapon: SPICY Pickles.

      Guacamole & Spicy Pickle Day must come earlier in the year. v0v

    While I quite like guacamole, I don’t like it spicy because it tends to over-power the flavor of the avocado (..even though I generally like spicy foods).

    -as for pickles:


      • just brew it!

      Just for you, I think we need some spicy guacamole made from pickled avocados. Or maybe some guacamole made from spicy pickled avocados. (Depending on order of operations.) 😉

        It’s so funny that the first thing you read below that post is, “just brew it!”
