    AMD CPU with an AMD Vid (Card?). Won't that make installing video drivers in Linux a real bear?

    I've read that AMD open source and proprietary drivers are much better these days.
    Don't know from experience, but if its true, then these AMD chips should be a "pain point"

    My AMD (Ryzen 1/Vega 8) APU-based laptop had some teething troubles, but is now trouble free - all open source AMD drivers. I don't see anything that would make me blink in that hardware configuration - only that you probably won't get the THX special sauce with the sound.
