Last year, AMD introduced new Zen-based processors for the mini PC market, the Ryzen V1000 and R1000, which were launched in partnership with smaller PC manufacturers such as ASRock or Zotac. However, it was there, and it's rare to see small PCs with Ryzen 2000 or 3000 processors, and let's not even discuss the new Ryzen 4000. Why don't small PC manufacturers use AMD processors?
Intel was also charged with unfair competition
Some of the most prominent NUC dealers are getting incentives to not build versions of AMD (or delay)

According to Ian Cutress, senior editor at Anandtech, it's obvious because some of the world's largest PC manufacturers are they receive grants
Granted, this is a serious allegation, but if you look at the responses in the tweet it seems to be it is not a surprise, directly, to users. In any case, there is no legal process in this case, unless it is known, and yet we can give credence to the words of Putress because if Anandtech has something that is directly credible, however in this case does not state the source or source of the allegation.
AMD and Intel have been fighting for 11 years
As we originally expected, Intel and AMD have been 11 years now when Intel was accused of improper competition and direct independence practices due to the same facts – in this case proven and proven.
In that case, it turns out that Intel offered huge discounts to many OEM PC manufacturers. to use their products only
And what about AMD mini PCs?
It is quite true that there are not many mini-processor PCs in the market, even though their APUs have proven to be a better alternative than Intel's products in this regard. In any case, it is true that a year ago the Picasso APU (Ryzen 3000 series) arrived on laptops to see the first PCs with computers, a major delay that can best be explained by the innovations that Intel is paying or paying.
Currently, some of the leading PC mini manufacturers in the market such as ASRock are starting to offer smaller PCs that are equipped with AMD Picasso APUs, so this may just be a thing of the past and they are now exempted from the compromise. which they could launch with Intel.
There is one thing I can say, and it seems that this "shortage" of products based on AMD processors does not only affect the market for mini computers. Without the good performance shown by the red carpet products especially when compared to Intel & # 39; s, you don't see many laptops currently using this excellent service and benefits. In other words, this phenomenon may be widespread in the book market, because as with small PCs, it is not until now that AMD models are first recognized.
To verify this fact, consider AMD Renoir APUs, with high efficiency but not many manufacturers, instead using Intel Comet Lake processors H which require more space, produce more heat and deliver more poor performance.
