Next year’s Ryzen 7000 APUs will have RDNA 3 GPUs

This fall, AMD is releasing a new generation of graphics cards (Radeon RX 7000) and Ryzen 7000 “Raphael” desktop processors with Zen 4 cores. However, this architecture should also be adopted quite quickly by Ryzen 7000 “Phoenix” APU processors for laptops. Little was known about these, but information on them has also started to leak: the Linux driver code has revealed the architecture of the integrated GPU.

AMD 4800S: Zen 2 console APU comes to PCs, now with PCIe 4.0

Obscure hardware has been thriving lately, with AMD choosing to recycle APUs used in consoles into improvised PC CPUs. Following the Jaguar chip from the Xbox One, this year theAMD 4700S Desktop Kit, a CPU with 8 Zen 2 cores produced from defective PlayStation 5 APUs, has appeared. And AMD now seems to be preparing a similar CPU with a new 4800S designation. A mainboard fitted with such should be suited for gaming.

AMD Strix Point: 3nm Ryzen 8000 with Zen 5 cores to be big.LITTLE

We’ve known for a long time that Intel’s next processors will be hybrid in both laptops and even desktops, combining little and big cores in the manner of big.LITTLE ARM processors in mobile phones. Some doubt remains about the viability of this approach with Windows platform or PC in general. But now there are reports that it’s not going to be just Intel. AMD could also go for similar hybrid architecture. Read more “AMD Strix Point: 3nm Ryzen 8000 with Zen 5 cores to be big.LITTLE” »

Ryzen Threadripper with Zen 3 – release date? August, reportedly

Zen 3 has been out for quite some time, but AMD has not yet announced a new high-end Threadripper version. Fortunately, we don’t have to worry anymore: Threadripper with Zen 3 is said to be delayed, but is expected to be released in the summer in 4–5 months. In addition, we also have good news for those interested in Ryzen with integrated graphics. Unlike the 4000 series, desktop APUs with Zen 3 cores are supposed to be commercially available.

Ryzen 5000 with iGPU? Models and specs revealed

AMD Ryzen 5000 desktop processors currently lack models with integrated GPU. But this summer, AMD will release an APU codenamed Cezanne, which is monolithic 7nm processor with Zen 3 cores and integrated graphics, based on the same silicon as the mobile Ryzen 5000. We now know the specifications for three models designed for socket AM4: Ryzen 3 5300G, Ryzen 5 5600G and the fastest octa-core Ryzen 7 5700G. Read more “Ryzen 5000 with iGPU?

Ryzen iGPU and the return of thermal compounds

AMD has released the first Ryzen desktop processors with iGPU this week. APU Ryzen 5 2400G and Ryzen 3 2200G could be attractive for compact computers because it’s easier to cool a single heat source than to cool both CPU and GPU, and the integrated graphics cards of these processors should have performance equal to GeForce GT 1030. However, it also means that the old enemy has returned, thermal compounds. Read more “Ryzen iGPU and the return of thermal compounds” »
