Latest AMD Ryzen APU is Rumored to Still Use Radeon Vega Until 2022
AMD APU as we know is AMD’s best-known processor for Radeon integration graphics. Where for the latest variant namely the Ryzen 4000 series with the codename “Renoir” which is currently only available for mobile variants, the Ryzen 4000 codename “Renoir” has a composition consisting of CPUs up to 8 Cores based on the “Zen 2” architecture with graphics up to 8 Compute Core based on the “VEGA” architecture, although the GPU integration used has fewer Compute Core units, AMD has succeeded in increasing inter-unit performance so that it produces better performance than the graphics that existed in the previous Ryzen APU.
Reportedly recently rumors circulated from one of the leachers Komachi Ensaka, showing a slide containing several AMD Ryzen codename processors where in the APU section there are three names namely Renoir, Cezanne and Rembrandt. Renoir as explained earlier is the current codename of AMD Ryzen 4000 APU which uses a combination of Zen 2-based CPUs with VEGA-based GPUs and is made with 7nm TSMC fabrication.
Based on these rumors, the AMD Ryzen APU processor will be released in 2021, namely Cezanne will continue to be produced using 7nm fabrication, using the latest Zen 3 architecture based CPUs and GPUs based on VEGA architecture. has been officially released via the GPU “Navi” but seeing a significant improvement made by AMD on the Ryzen 4000 APU is not impossible VEGA is still reliable for graphics integration.
The story differs from the Rembrandt codename APU which was present in 2022 where AMD reportedly just made major changes in this APU, the changes include using Zen 3 CPU architecture, GPU architecture RDNA gen 2, RAM DDR5 and using 6nm fabrication which is a refreshed version of 7nm fabrication ( Similar to the fabrication of 12nm which is a refresh of 16nm / 14nm). In the same year AMD reportedly also set up a Van Gogh low-power codename APU targeting the 9-12W TDP to compete with the Intel Y series which generally exists on 2 in 1 devices or Ultrabooks.
Please remember this is still a rumor, it could be right or wrong.
