I don't think you gain a noticeable performance advantage, I did some tests once switching between iGPU and dGPU as the monitor driver and if there was a difference it was hidden by margin of error.

The review embargo lifted an hour ago for the 3080, mostly it's gaming but hopefully some decent compute tests pop up soon. tl;dr 1440P is improved but not massively, 4K is nicely improved. Power...

Nvidia is about as far from neutral as they come, I hope on that basis alone the deal falls through. However I have zero faith in the UK government to have the sense to put a spanner in the works if...

RDNA2 is well-anticipated but I don't expect the earth. They need to roll >18 on a D20 to crit and that's just to get back in the game.
