I got the Crucial 5600 as well. Went overkill on the RAM because 6 times the memory for only about 2.5x the cost of Framework’s $80 16GB cost seemed like a no-brainer to never have to upgrade the RAM again. Since it’s an APU I figure I’m relying on for both CPU and GPU so maxing out the RAM is more justified from that standpoint as well.
I got 64 also as I often run several VMs.
I’ve been gaming on a 6800U laptop with 16 GB of RAM shared between the CPU and GPU - it’s fine. You’re not going to be maxing out the settings of the latest AAA games on the integrated graphics, and I can’t imagine a game needing more than 8 GB of VRAM without bottlenecking on something else first.
I have been using my GPD Win 4 6800U with 32GB and it has been fantastic. 16 would have been more then enough for me to, I just wanted the option to run a VM or 2. I stuck with 32GB for this round too as it has worked just fine for me.
Looks like some of Batch 6 have laptops in hand, we’re getting closer and closer!
Just got the “preparing batch 8” email! (November 21st)
Edit: credit card charged email came on November 29th.
Edit 2: it shipped from Taiwan the next day. Estimated delivery in the US on December 4th.
We’re finally here folks!
me too. That was a lot quicker than I expected!
I’m trying to temper my excitement, since according to the e-mail it could still be another 3 weeks.
But it’s a losing battle, I’m hyped to get my hands on this and it should be huge for my productivity!
Also just got my email!!! so excited.
I also got an email, and ordered on 07. Oct 2023. It said it takes between 1-3 weeks from now on.
I ordered a Framework Laptop 13 DIY Edition AMD Ryzen™ 7 7840U. I am also excited .
Got my e-mail also!!!
As a Batch 7 member, I am happy for you guys! Just be patient for the next 2-3 weeks - Batch 7 folks have still not started getting charged yet.
Got mine also!!! I’m in no rush…my 11th Gen is still holding strong (I’m typing on it).
Your wait might almost be over. I suspect the first of batch 7 will get charged tomorrow or Thursday. It seems like it is usually 7-8 days from the email to the first charges (but then 2-3 weeks before everyone in the batch gets charged+shipped).
According to this graph posted to Reddit we are most likely looking at somewhere between December 5th and 12th for when our batch’s shipping starts.
I personally expect a slight delay due to both Thanksgiving and it being the start of December.
That works for me…I use mine currently for school and my classes don’t end until the 15th so I was planning on waiting to do the upgrade afterward as to not run into any issues.
