There was a report yesterday about a note from Susquehanna Financial Group analyst Chris Rolland, which found that AMD is increasing its marketshare in the desktop and laptop market. Despite his claims that Ryzen Mobile is showing signs of life, the reality seems to be that there's no wave of Ryzen Mobile based laptops about to hit the market.

German tech site ComputerBase counted the number of new AMD-based laptops presented at the IFA show in Berlin and concludes it was basically zero.

The site asked AMD for more details, but the company refused to comment on the low number of new launches with AMD mobile CPUs. Acer refused to comment too and ASUS pointed towards its existing AMD-based laptops.

Lenovo said new laptop introductions usually coincide with new CPUs, suggesting AMD didn't have anything new to offer, while Dell said new AMD-based notebook models will follow within a couple of months.
