So it made sense for AMD to stick with a tried and true design for the GPU and only update the CPU.

Still, next gen is expected to be RDNA 2.
Yeah, and TBH, AMD was better off focusing on the desktop side of RDNA 2 before moving it down to mobile. AMD still needs to spend its resources wisely, and while better iGPUs would be great, they are not a priority ATM. Better iGPUs won't gain them much market share ATM.
