The middle of the week is upon us, with a few items to get you over the hump. We have a simulated take on what to expect from the AMD Ryzen 5 1600X and 1500X CPUs, which will be interesting to look back and see how close things were when the actual parts arrive early in April. For some mobile performance, there's a preview of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 Mobile Platform to see what we can expect from it when powering our phones and tablets. Wrapping things up is a review on the Lenovo Yoga Book that sees if this unique take on the 2-in-1 laptop is one to get.
