It is only a matter of time before AMD refreshes its APU (accelerated processing unit) lineup. Codenamed "Renoir," the next-generation APUs will combine CPU cores based on AMD's Zen 2 architecture with GPU cores that are likely to still be based on Vega, rather than making a move to Navi. That's a bit disappointing, though if a recent leak is any indication, we could be looking at a significant boost in GPU clockspeed for the next round of APUs. Note that AMD does not actually use the term "APU" anymore—it prefers the longer-winded descriptor of "Ryzen Processors with Radeon Vega Graphics" when describing chips like the Ryzen 3 3200G and its other current-generation APUs. Call them whatever... Read more...
The latest version of AIDA64 is primed for AMD's next round of processors, including its unreleased Ryzen 4000 series desktop CPUs and Renoir APUs. In addition, it brings official support for the November 2019 Update for Windows 10 and a few other things, though it's the prepping for AMD's upcoming silicon that is interesting. AMD is riding high on its third-generation Ryzen processors based on its Zen 2 CPU architecture, and built on a 7-nanometer manufacturing process. The company propelled itself back into relevance with Zen, and its between Zen, Zen+, and Zen 3 parts, AMD is dominating sales on Amazon, where 8 out of the 10 top selling CPUs are Ryzen parts. Even better for AMD, its Zen 2... Read more...
It is only a matter of time before AMD launches a new round of accelerating processing units (APUs). Codenamed "Renoir," the company's next-generation APUs will replace its current-generation 12-nanometer Picasso lineup, and make the jump to a 7-nanometer Zen 2 foundation, possibly paired with Navi. While we sit back and wait for an official announcement, some supposed 3DMark 11 entries based on three Renoir APUs have popped up. Before we get to that, let's first talk a little about Renoir. Things can get confusing in a hurry when jumping around AMD's lineup, as generational nomenclatures get tossed around rather loosely. As it pertains to that, Zen 2 (7nm) CPU architecture is the third-generation... Read more...
