The attention of AMD APU processor has been very high. At present, the Renoir family's Reebok 4000U and Reebok 4000H series are in full swing on laptops, and the sharp dragon 4000g series for desktop will soon be born, with 8 cores and 16 threads for the first time.
Renoir's successor, Cezanne (Cezanne), is also known as the Reebok 5000U / h / G series. The CPU architecture will be upgraded to the new generation Zen 3, but the manufacturing process is still 7Nm. The GPU graphics core confirms to continue Vega architecture. However, it is expected that similar to Renoir, it will further enhance the display and multimedia, and even continue to increase the frequency or expand the core scale.
If you don't like Vega GPU, don't worry, Cezanne will be the last to use it.
In the field of ultra-low power consumption, "Van Gogh" (Van Gogh) will replace the speedo 3000u series code named Dali (DALI), or the speedo 4000U series. It will integrate rDNA Navi GPU core for the first time, and leap from 14nm and Zen architecture to 7Nm Zen 2 architectureIt has made great progress, but compared with the high-performance APU, it still lags behind in CPU.
As for the reason why Navi GPU is first used in ultra-low power APU, it may be that it has lower power consumption and higher energy efficiency.
Van Gogh is currently in the A0 step-by-step stage and is expected to be released simultaneously with Cezanne U / h series. The old rule is that Vega 20 and Navi 21 in the code in the figure do not mean that they have 20 and 21 calculation units respectively, but they use different numerical numbers on the APU.
The next step isCezanne successor, codenamed "Rembrandt"(great dutch painter rembrandt), is naturally the raillon 6000 U/H/G series, which is expected to be the perfect thing for many people: upgrading the manufacturing process to 5 nm,CPU architecture-at least Zen 3 or perhaps even Zen 3,GPU architecture-is at least.
however,How can the Ruilong 6000g be released only in 2022, when amd has a great probability of abandoning the AM4 interface.
