Leaked AMD roadmap shows consumption of 4 to 35 watts for mobile Zen APUs




There are roadmaps published online that provide more information about the consumption of the AMD Zen APUs for mobile devices and desktop variants. The Raven Ridge APUs for laptops and all-in-ones have up to four cores with eight threads.

The roadmaps are posted on the forum of Semi Accurate and seem to be of AMD coming. On the diagram shows that the Raven Ridge FP5 APUs for laptops and AIOs come in 2017 and are equipped with up to sixteen “compute cores, AMD supports under this heading both the cpu and gpu cores. The configuration with sixteen cores consists of four AMD Zen cores that can handle eight threads together and twelve graphics cores, each with 64 stream processors. There will appear efficient APUs with a consumption of 4 watts up to 35 watts. The economical variants will be equipped with less compute cores, but it is not yet known to what configurations AMD will make the APUs.

Also displays the roadmap information about the Raven Ridge-APUs AM4 with a socket, which may be used in desktop computers and which succeed the current APUs AMD in the A-series. These come in versions with a TDP of 35 to 95 watts. The most powerful versions will have four Zen cores with eight threads, combined with twelve graphics cores.

AMD Zen Summit Ridge CPUs for socket AM4, who do not have graphics cores, get up to eight cores and sixteen threads and a TDP of 65 to 95 watts. These processors are the successors of the current AMD FX models.

AMD desktop roadmap 2017

All Zen processors for desktops use a new chipset, AMD gives codenamed Promontory. The chipset supports USB 3.1, nvme-SSD and SATA Express. This year appear AM4 motherboards with this chipset, coupled with new Bristol Ridge APUs. These chips still use the old Excavator cores baked at 28nm.

Both roadmaps indicate that the Zen AMD processors and APUs appear on the market in 2017. A release at the end of 2016, which has previously been hinted , seems therefore to be excluded. Presumably presents AMD are Zen products on the CES Consumer Electronics Show in January, Intel is showing its new generation Kaby Lake.
