Trying to pick. I have a 12th gen i5 framework-12 I’ll be handing down to the wife. Will install ubuntu 22.04
My workload is:
- general purpose / traveling use → eg battery life both on and in standby, mostly, since ‘office’ use is mostly irrelevant performance wise.
- run some workloads in docker as well as a single windows VM for two programs not supported
- some CAD and development (but these days cpu compiler time is not that relevant - filesystem is though)
- connect one usb-c 4k monitor today and will be adding another within the life of the laptop. Perhaps by that time it will be higher res. I see ‘thunderbolt’ is intel only, but is there any practical difference in support or performance with AMD’s implementation there?
I can’t find any direct comparison or pros/cons here. I see Framework is only or initially shipping 16’s with Ryzens - does that carry any significance w.r.t. choosing the processor on the 13?
