  1. AMD Ryzen 7 4700G could match Ryzen 7 3800X performance while using way less power At least if this leaked benchmark is anything to go by (Image credit: AMD) AMD’s Ryzen 7 4700G, the rumored to soon be incoming ‘Renoir’ APU, has had a benchmark leaked which allegedly uses the final production version of the chip – and it keeps pace with the Ryzen 7 3800X while using a lot less power. As we’ve seen in previous rumors, this is an 8-core model (with 16-threads) with a base clock of 3.6GHz (we even got a purported glimpse of the chip a couple of months back). The latest spillage highlighted by Wccftech comes from ITCooker (via Xfastest HK unit), and as mentioned is reportedly a benchmark of the finished version of the Ryzen 7 4700G (which is the first AMD desktop APU to carry the Ryzen 7 branding). In Cinebench R20 multi-core the 4700G managed to achieve a CPU score of 5,102 and in Cinebench R15 the CPU hit 2,168 points. Comparing to the existing Ryzen 7 3800X processor, that model scores about 5,000 and 2,100 in those benchmarks respectively, so the performance levels are roughly equal here. (Image credit: ITCooker / Wccftech) Power-efficient Of course, we do have to bear in mind that this is just a single benchmark – and a leak which we can’t be sure is genuine – but bearing these caveats in mind, this definitely looks to be an impressive performance considering that the 4700G runs with a 65W TDP, compared to the 95W power consumption of the 3800X (almost 50% more). We heard back in May that it shouldn’t be long before Ryzen 4000 Renoir APUs are on shelves, and indeed the latest from the CPU grapevine is that they will launch in the coming month. Only then will we be able to be sure of the performance levels offered by these chips, when we get them in for testing. AMD Ryzen 7 4700G could match Ryzen 7 3800X performance while using way less power
  2. AMD Ryzen 4000 specs might have just leaked - courtesy of AMD Alleged internal documents suggests a 16-core flagship is on its way (Image credit: AMD) AMD has confirmed that its Zen 3 processors will make their debut on October 8, and now it might have unwittingly revealed what we can expect from the next-gen CPUs. An alleged internal document from AMD, which dates back to 10 June was shared by tipster CyberPunkCat, confirms that the Ryzen 4000 CPUs will be known as the AMD Family 19h Model 21h B20. AMD’s current Zen and Zen 2 processors belong to Family 17h, so Family 19h likely refer to its next-generation Zen 3 architecture. The leaked document reveals that the CPU family, codenamed 'Vermeer', may be designed for use in high-performance desktop platforms, featuring up to two CCD's (Core/Cache Complex Dies) and a single I/O Die. On Zen 2, each CCD houses two CCX (Core Complexities), but on Zen 3, there’s only one CCX hat will feature up to 8 cores running either in a single-thread mode (1T) or a two-thread model (2T) for up to 16 threads per CCX, according to the document. This means, in theory at least, the core and thread count will top out at 16 cores and 32 threads, which is the same as the existing AMD Ryzen 9 3950X flagship. The alleged internal document also reveals that Zen 3 supports up to 512GB per DRAM channel or up to 1TB of ECC DRAM, clocked between 1333MHz and 3200MHz. Ryzen 4000 CPUs will also feature two unified memory controllers, each supporting a single DRAM channel. The leak doesn’t tell us much about the performance we can expect from Ryzen 4000 CPUs, but earlier rumors suggest Zen 3 will deliver around 15% to 17% better IPC (instructions per clock) performance compared to Zen 2, which should have Intel worried if true. With AMD planning to unveil its Ryzen 4000 CPUs in just a few weeks time on October 8, we don’t have to wait much longer until we find out if it's true.

  3. AMD boasts that Ryzen 4000 CPUs will be ‘tremendously powerful’ Zen 3 is going to blow you away by all accounts… (Image credit: Future) AMD’s Ryzen 4000 desktop processors will be ‘tremendously powerful’ thanks to the major advancements in the Zen 3 architecture they’re built on, a company executive recently boasted. The comment was made by Forrest Norrod, AMD’s senior vice president, during the Deutsche Bank 2020 conference call, as reported by Seeking Alpha. Norrod said: “So you know that first Zen 1 Core was great and hugely cored, but Zen2 was as well. And Zen 3, that’s at the heart of our next-generation products is also a tremendously powerful architecture and you know right on the trajectory that we needed to be on.” Certainly there’s no mistaking the confidence behind the strong choice of wording for exactly how powerful Zen 3 will be, and therefore the kind of power we can expect from next-gen Ryzen 4000 chips. AMD recently let us know that there will be an initial reveal of Zen 3 desktop processors on October 8, so we should know a lot more about Ryzen 4000 CPUs very soon. That’ll be followed by another event on October 28 where AMD will unveil Big Navi graphics cards. Big leap in performance Of course, with the launch just a few weeks away now, it makes sense that AMD would be starting to crank up the hype machine for Ryzen 4000. We are expecting something like a 15% uplift in terms of IPC (instructions per clock), or maybe even more, with the rumor mill also mentioning up to 20% gains as a possibility. A big leap in performance is expected, then, and a fresh leak of the purported AMD Ryzen 9 4950X is also cause for concern for Intel, with this 16-core processor hitting 4.8GHz boost – with potentially faster speeds to come, as that’s (allegedly) an early engineering sample. The existing 3950X offers a 4.7GHz boost – and remember, any clock speed improvements will be coming on top of those major architectural gains, for a double whammy for Intel. AMD boasts that Ryzen 4000 CPUs will be ‘tremendously powerful’
  4. AMD Ryzen 4000 smashes world record RAM speeds DDR4 gets up to a whopping 6,666MHz (Image credit: Future) The Asus ROG team have smashed a new world record by pushing a stick of Crucial Ballistix Max DDR4 RAM to a whopping 6,666.6MHz – it usually runs at 2,666MHz – achieving the highest-clocked memory speed of all time. The world record was set by Bianbao XE, who used an AMD Ryzen 7 4700GE 'Renoir' APU and an Asus ROG B550-I Gaming motherboard to achieve this incredible result. As Tom’s Hardware points out, the motherboard is a Mini-ITX one, which is favored by overclockers as its smaller size makes it more efficient. Overclocking RAM Getting DDR4 RAM to these kinds of speeds is certainly impressive, and while most people think about GPUs and CPUs when it comes to overclocking, the speed of your RAM also plays a big part in the overall performance of your PC. Still, as with every type of overclocking, it carries risks and should only be performed by people with experience of overclocking. AMD Ryzen 4000 smashes world record RAM speeds
  5. AMD Ryzen 9 4950X leak has appeared – and it could take Intel's gaming crown 16-core, 32-thread CPU could challenge Intel with a 4.8GHz boost clock (Image credit: AMD) A new leak has detailed AMD’s Zen 3-based Ryzen 9 4950X CPU - and it should have Intel worried. This leak comes via Igors Lab, which reveals that the so-called Ryzen 9 4950X will be a 16-core, 32-thread part with an impressive boost frequency of 4.8GHz. The information comes from an OPN code which reads "100-000000059-52_48/35_Y." The ’35’ at the end signifies the 3.5 GHz base clock, with ’48’ telling us the boost clock is 4.8 GHz. That’s 100MHz higher than the AMD Ryzen 9 3950X, which tops out at 4.7GHz. What’s more, this code likely refers to an engineering sample of the Zen 3 'Vermeer’ CPU, so it's likely that these clock speeds will be even higher at launch – potentially even entering Intel's 5GHz territory. Some reports speculate that the processor could undergo a name change ahead of its official unveiling, too, and claim AMD could skip the Ryzen 4000 series nomenclature on desktop to avoid confusion with its current-zen Zen 2-based Ryzen 4000 mobile chips. While this leak doesn’t tell us much else about AMD’s incoming Zen 3 desktop CPUs, we’re expecting a major improvement in the performance department. A previous leak claims Ryzen 4000 CPUs will deliver 15% to 17% better IPC (instructions per clock) compared to AMD's Ryzen 3000 desktop processors, which is bad news for Intel. AMD is expected to launch its first Zen 3-based processors in September, likely just days after Intel reveals its long-awaited 10nm Tiger Lake CPUs. Via TechPowerUp AMD Ryzen 9 4950X leak has appeared – and it could take Intel's gaming crown
  6. AMD Ryzen 4000 desktop CPUs could be about to enter mass production Next-gen Ryzen processors could soon be rolling off the production lines (Image credit: Future) AMD’s Ryzen 4000 desktop processors are about to enter mass production, according to the rumor mill, so they should be on track for a 2020 launch as has previously been insisted. This information comes from Igor’s Lab, whose sources reckon that Ryzen 4000 CPUs have reached ‘B0 stepping’ – a technical term for a different revision of a processor – with that silicon likely to be the final version, and hence AMD’s ready to begin mass production of the finished products. Naturally, we have to chuck in a big heap of salt with this one, given that it’s just chatter from the grapevine. And even if what the sources believe is actually true right now, there’s always the possibility that some kind of last-minute gremlin could prompt a further revision. In other words, don’t get carried away, although it’s difficult not to get at least a little excited at the prospect that Ryzen 4000 desktop processors could be about to start rolling off assembly lines. No pressure? It’s still not certain exactly when these CPUs might launch, but we’ve heard the possibility of AMD unveiling the chips as early as September. In reality, as to when they might actually go on sale, it could be October, or indeed any of the closing months of 2020. With mass production about to start – possibly – the chips could certainly come sooner rather than later, although even if the lines are cranked up, AMD may not necessarily feel a whole lot of pressure to rush Ryzen 4000 out the door (or at least not the entire range, as some other rumor mongers seem to believe that only the high-end CPUs might arrive initially). After all, existing Ryzen 3000 processors are plenty competitive compared to Intel’s latest Comet Lake products, and indeed we have refreshed Ryzen 3000 ‘XT’ models due to debut very shortly. With Intel’s Rocket Lake next-gen CPUs still some way off, and potentially launching in Q1 or Q2 of 2021 – and still built on 14nm (albeit with a new architecture) – AMD seems to be very much in the driving seat, and sales of desktop products clearly reflect this.

  7. AMD Ryzen 4000 desktop APUs will be here in Q3 2020 We're not getting any new Ryzen 9 models—but 3, 5, and 7 get integrated GPUs. Enlarge / Ryzen 4000 desktop CPUs are here—but they don't look like the follow-up breakthrough many readers have been hoping for. AMD 21 with 17 posters participating, including story author This morning, AMD announced the next big thing for its Ryzen desktop CPU line—the Ryzen 4000 series, slated to arrive in Q3 2020. Those of you who've been waiting breathlessly for Zen 3 architecture will need to keep waiting—Ryzen 4000 desktop CPUs are still built on 7nm, Zen 2 architecture. There also don't appear to be any performance recordbreakers in Ryzen 4000's desktop lineup: the highest-end SKU announced is the 65W 8 core / 16 thread Ryzen 7 Pro 4750G. Instead, AMD is taking solid aim at rival Intel's chokehold on the office PC market. Every single one of the 18 new processor SKUs announced features integrated Radeon graphics—and nine of the 18 are "GE" suffix CPUs, meaning only 35W TDP. Both of these features are highly desirable in either home-office or business environments—Radeon integrated graphics are good enough for anything short of high-end content creation or gaming, and lower TDP means lower power bills and lower cooling bills as well in hotter climates. Desktop Ryzen 4000 Architecture and performance The new Ryzen 4000 G-series APUs will continue to use the AM4 socket and are based on 7nm Zen2 architecture just like the earlier Ryzen 3000 CPUs. They're essentially Ryzen Mobile 4000 APUs writ large, upscaled into desktop-class frequency, power, and thermal budgets. In at least one way, the new series is a step backward from Ryzen 3000: the 4000 G-series only offers PCI express 3.0, not 4.0. Each chip offers eight PCIe 3.0 lanes for expansion cards—we don't know yet whether there will be additional PCIe lanes for NVMe devices. This isn't likely to be a problem for Ryzen 4000 G-series customers—these CPUs are all designed to be used with integrated graphics, and none of them outperforms the higher-end Ryzen 3000 desktop CPUs in the first place. When it comes to estimating what 4000 G-series' performance will look like, AMD offered us much less concrete data than we've become accustomed to. The company wasn't shy about telling us that G series is faster than competing Intel vPro CPUs, and by how much—but AMD is remarkably cagey about comparisons to earlier Ryzen CPUs. Slides claim "over 2.5x more performance than last gen"—but those numbers are gotten by comparing Ryzen 7 4700G to Ryzen 5 3450G, not to Ryzen 7 3700X. If we want to get a realistic comparison to Ryzen 3000 desktop CPUs, we're left to do a little donkey-work and hope the numbers line up. AMD's slide claims "+152%" Cinebench R20 multi-threaded results when comparing Ryzen 7 4700G to Ryzen 5 3450G—this isn't very useful by itself, but it gives us something to go on. CGIdirector shows Ryzen 5 3450G attaining an R20 multi-threaded score of 1,995. If we add 152 percent to that, we come up with a score of 5,027. This guesstimated raw score comes out to a measly 3.5 percent improvement over Ryzen 7 3700X—and a dead heat with Ryzen 7 3800X. Running the numbers this way might be a bit sloppy—but it seems to thoroughly answer the question, "Why is AMD comparing Ryzen 7 4000 to Ryzen 5 3000?" Ryzen 4000 APU models Enlarge / AMD Memory Guard—full RAM encryption—is the main selling point for the Pro variant of Ryzen 4000 G-series processors. AMD Eighteen different SKUs were announced today—but there are really only five new base models. Four of them have both G and GE (power efficient) models, and all of them have both Pro and non-Pro models—the difference being that Pro models explicitly support AMD Memory Guard and AMD Secure Processor technologies, and non-Pro models do not.

The Pro versions of these Ryzen 4000 desktop APUs are available to OEMs and SIs today, and systems featuring both Pro and non-Pro Ryzen 4000 APUs are expected to be available from larger OEMs in the fall.

  8. AMD Ryzen 4000 Renoir APUs in leaked online listing suggest imminent launch Dutch retailer suggests Ryzen Pro chips could launch within days (Image credit: AMD) AMD’s long-awaited Ryzen 4000 desktop APUs could arrive in shelves in just days, at least according to one retailer. Dutch retailer Centralpoint has prematurely listed the incoming Ryzen 7 Pro 4750G, Ryzen 5 Pro 4650G and Ryzen 3 Pro 4350G. According to the listings, the higher-end octa-core and hex-core CPUs will ship within "3 to 5 days", with the entry-level quad-core APU expected to arrive in stock on July 10. Though there’s not much that hasn't been leaked about the desktop Renoir APU, Centralpoint has given us our first glimpse of pricing. The AMD Ryzen 7 Pro 4750G will fetch $357 (around £285, AU$511), while the Ryzen 5 Pro 4650G and Ryzen 3 Pro 4350G are listed as $243 (£194, AU$349) and $177 (£141, AU$253), respectively. While these prices seem steep, it's worth remembering there’s no official word from AMD on pricing just yet, so there's a chance that Centralpoint's prices are just placeholders for now. The specifications detailed on Centralpoint's product pages fall in line with the previously leaked information, as it lists the 7nm APUs with boost clock speeds up to 4.4 GHz, 4.3 GHz and 4.1 GHz, respectively. As per previous rumors, the 7nm AMD Ryzen 7 Pro 4750G will have a base clock of 3.6GHz, a 65W TDP and 12MB cache, and a the Vega 8 iGPU clocked at 2,100Mhz. The six-core Ryzen 5 4650G will have a 3.7GHz base clock, the same 65W TDP and a Vega 7 chip clocked at 1,900Mhz, while the Ryzen 3 Pro 4530G will feature a base clock of 3.8GHz, and a Vega 6 chip clocked at 1,700Mhz. It won't be long until we find out for sure, as AMD is expected to confirm more details during the the launch of its Ryzen 3000XT Matisse Refresh CPUs on July 7.

  9. 6-core AMD Ryzen APU spotted: could this be a new budget champion? AMD Ryzen 4400G APU shows up on 3DMark ahead of its rumored arrival next month (Image credit: AMD) A mid-range AMD Ryzen 4000 'Renoir' APU has been spotted in 3DMark ahead of its rumored arrival next month. Details of the listing, shared by Twitter tipster @TUM_APISAK, reveal that the AMD Ryzen 4400G will be a 6-core, 12-thread processor with a base clock of 3.7GHz and a boost clock of 3.3GHz. Details about the Ryzen 5 4400G’s onboard iGPU remain a mystery, though previous rumors suggested it would support seven Compute Units (CUs) with its engine clock set at 1.90GHz. In 3DMark 11, where it was benchmarked with 8GB of DDR4-3200 RAM, the APU racked up a score of 10,241 in the physics test and 4,395 in the graphics test. Compared to the last-generation Ryzen 5 3400G, the AMD Ryzen 4400G falls short in the former, though it shows around a 9% uptick in GPU performance. These results are unlikely to reflect the final performance of the Ryzen 5 4400G, though. In fact, according to an earlier leak, AMD Ryzen 4000 desktop APUs could offer up to a 90% performance increase over last year's Ryzen 3000 processors. AMD’s Ryzen 4000 APUs will be based on Team Red’s Zen 2 CPU and Vega GPU architecture based on TSMC's 7nm process node and will be compatible with the existing AM4 platform. Meanwhile, the rest of the upcoming Ryzen 4000 series will be based on Zen 3. The lineup will be headed-up by the Ryzen 7 PRO 4700G, an 8-core, 16-thread APU was spotted with default clocks set at 3.6GHz and boost clocks running at 4.45GHz. The Ryzen 5 4400G will sit in the middle, while the 4-core, 8-thread Ryzen 3 4200G will round off the lineup as an entry-level option. When they debut later this year, likely alongside AMD's Zen 3-based Ryzen 4000 CPUs, incoming Ryzen 4000 in entry-level desktops and all-in-ones due to their integrated graphics capabilities. 6-core AMD Ryzen APU spotted: could this be a new budget champion?
  10. More evidence of AMD Ryzen 4000 APU with 8 cores surfaces Is the 8-core Renoir desktop APU all but confirmed? (Image credit: Future) It seems that leakers just can’t get enough of this whole Renoir desktop APU business. This time a whole lineup of AMD Ryzen 4000 APUs have been spotted. Igor Wallosek of Igor's Lab has just published AMD’s “Renoir” APU portfolio, listing quite a few Ryzen APUs. More importantly, the list, which he obtained from an unnamed source, also contains quite a lot of very specific information regarding technical specifications. Obviously, we need to take this with a pinch of salt. However, if these listings are in fact real, then AMD is ramping up its APU line with an 8-core, 16-thread APU flagship. (Image credit: Igor's Lab) Ramping up the APU flagship Unfortunately, the portfolio only displays the products’ OPN numbers, so we can’t confirm whether or not the recently leaked Ryzen 7 4700G is indeed real. There is one APU on this list with 8 cores, a CPU base clock of 3GHz, and iGPU clocked at 1750MHz. While this somewhat supports an earlier leak spotted by @_rogame, that at least one APU with those specifications exists and is currently being tested, this particular APU in the listing seems to be for mobile, not desktop. You can, however, see from the listing below that there are four desktop APUs with 8 cores and 16 threads supporting the rumor that AMD is doubling up on its flagship, the Ryzen 5 3400G, in terms of cores. (Image credit: Igor's Lab) (Image credit: Igor's Lab) (Image credit: Igor's Lab) These APUs also have 8 CUs, 512 Stream Processors (SPs) and impressively high CPU base frequencies at only 65W and 35W TDPs, which means that they’re going to offer decent performance boosts while being power efficient as well. Wallosek says that not all of these will make the final line-up, and AMD could still tweak the specs so they might be slightly different on the production models. Still, this gives us a pretty good peek at what’s in store for Team Red. We're sure AMD will lift the veil from these processors when its ready to show off the rest of the Ryzen 4000 desktop lineup.

  11. AMD Ryzen 4000 desktop CPUs could blow Intel away with nearing 20% IPC boost AMD’s claiming 15-17% better IPC, but OEMs say it feels faster, rumor suggests (Image credit: AMD) AMD’s Ryzen 4000 desktop processors which are expected to arrive later this year will be a massive step on in terms of performance compared to current Ryzen 3000 CPUs, if the latest from the rumor mill is to be believed. We should note upfront that the source of this speculation, a certain ‘Ice Universe’, is not one of the sources we’d normally expect to come forth with info on AMD – and while Wccftech, which spotted this, insists that the leaker has a solid enough track record, that mainly seems to revolve around smartphone rumors. At any rate, we’d treat this one very cautiously, but as you can see from the tweet translated by RetiredEngineer on Twitter – advising the use of a large bowl of salt himself – it outlines ‘gossip’ about the performance of Ryzen 4000 CPUs based on Zen 3 (the fact that it’s self-proclaimed ‘gossip’ should be borne firmly in mind as well). Apparently, AMD is claiming around 15% to 17% better IPC (instructions per clock) with its next-gen CPUs, and if anything, engineers at two prominent device manufacturers are purportedly saying that with testing, sample Ryzen 4000 chips are looking even more promising than this (and that they are owning Intel on the power consumption front, too). Could that even hint at a near 20% uplift in IPC compared to Ryzen 3000? This is entering the territory of guesswork now, of course, but we have heard whispers of perhaps 15% or even as much as 20% gains from the grapevine in the past. Then again, there has also been talk of a more modest increase pitched around 8% to 10%. However, theoretically as we get closer towards launch, we should be hearing more accurate estimations regarding how much of an uplift Ryzen 4000 will deliver. But ultimately, these are just estimations, and as ever we have to trust that the rumor isn’t partially or even wholly fabricated. In this case, as we’ve already said, it’s one of the shakier sounding Ryzen 4000 rumors to have emerged. Intel in serious trouble? Still, if it is true, or close to the truth, Intel may be trouble, given that it’s about to be launched 10th-gen Comet Lake processors are late to the party, and have their work cut out keeping up with Ryzen 3000 – let alone AMD’s next-gen chips, particularly if this sort of speed boost really is in the cards. Intel does also have 11th-gen Rocket Lake desktop CPUs on the horizon and ready to roll with a new architecture, and as we’ve observed before, one theory is that they could be released in a hurry to try to combat the Ryzen 4000 threat. However, with Comet Lake chips not even on the shelves yet, and Ryzen 4000 potentially looking to launch around October – just five months from now – it’s hard to see how Rocket Lake is going to get close to Ryzen 4th-gen (it seems more likely that Intel’s 11th-gen CPUs will debut in Q2 of 2021, or perhaps Q1 at a push).

  12. AMD Ryzen 4000 leak hints at 16-core Ryzen 9 3950X successor Zen 3 CPU will allegedly boast a 3.7GHz base clock and 4.6GHz boost clock (Image credit: AMD) A new leak has revealed the specifications of AMD’s incoming Ryzen 4000 desktop CPUs, confirming a mammoth 16-core successor to the Ryzen 9 3950X. The leak comes courtesy of Igors Lab, which recently gave us the skinny on AMD’s Ryzen 4000 ‘Renoir’ APU lineup. It has now got the scoop on the Ryzen 4000 ‘Vermeer’ desktop CPUs, which unlike Renoir APUs, won’t feature an integrated GPU and will be built on AMD's new and improved Zen 3 microarchitecture. Though this will continue to use TSMC's 7nm process, it’s expected to offer a major performance boost compared to the current Zen 2-based Ryzen 3000 processors, with AMD allegedly touting 15% to 17% IPC gains. AMD Ryzen 4000 specs leak Specifications pulled from for the engineering samples (ES) show that the Ryzen 4000 Vermeer CPU lineup will be headed up by a 16-core, 32-thread successor to the Ryzen 9 3950X, and while these details are likely to change ahead of release, more information obtained via the Ordering Part Number (OPN) codes claim that the chip will boast a 3.7GHz base clock and 4.6GHz boost clock. When compared to the Ryzen 9 3950X, that’s a 200MHz increase in the base clock, and a 100MHz decrease in boost clock speed. The Ryzen 4000 leak also details a second 16-core part, with the same 3.7GHz and 4.6GHz base and boost clocks, along with three 8-core, 16-thread chips. These appear to have 4GHz and 4.6GHz base and boost clock speeds, respectively; the Ryzen 7 3800X arrived with a 3.9GHz base clock and 4.5 GHz base clock. The AMD Ryzen 4000 desktop CPU lineup is widely expected to debut in September. Team Red had originally planned to showcase the Zen 3 processors at the now-cancelled Computex show this month, but sources claim the company will now show off its next-generation desktop processors later this year regardless of whether Taiwan’s delayed computing show goes ahead or not.

  13. More AMD Ryzen 4000 ‘Renoir’ APU specifications leaked, model names revealed The Ryzen 7 4700G is real (Image credit: AMD) It hasn’t been that long since Igor's Lab published AMD’s “Renoir” APU portfolio, which he obtained from an unknown source, listing several Ryzen 4000 APUs. Now, a new leak has surfaced that not only validates that list, but also sheds some light on which APUs will actually make it to production. According to Wccftech, Biostar just posted the CPU support list for its new B550 motherboard, the Racing B550GTQ Ver. 5.0, and it lists several new Ryzen 4000 'Renoir' APUs, complete with their actual model names (not just their OPNs) and their final clock speeds. Discovered by leaker Komachi_Ensaka, the list shows seven new Renoir APUs – three with a TDP of 35W and four with a TDP of 65W. And, among these seven include the much anticipated Ryzen 7 4700G, confirming rumors of its existence. Ryzen 4000 ‘Renoir’ APU and specs (Image credit: Biostar) While Biostar’s CPU support list doesn’t actually give us all the important specs for each chip, only the model names, OPNs, base clocks and TDPs, we can cross-reference it to the more detailed list from Igor's Lab. By doing so, we can confirm that the Ryzen 7 4700G, with OPN# 100-000000146, will boast 8 cores, 16 threads, a base clock of 3.6GHz and 65W TDP. It looks like we’re also getting a Ryzen 7 PRO 4700G and a Ryzen 7 4700GE, both of which will have 8 cores and 16 threads, but 65W and 35W TDPs respectively. Other Renoir APUs on the list are the Ryzen 5 PRO 4400G, Ryzen 3 PRO 4200G, Ryzen 5 4400GE, & the Ryzen 3 4200GE. Based on these leaks, here are the 'Renoir' APUs we have so far, alongside their specs: Ryzen 3 4200GE: 4-core, 8-thread, 3.5GHz base clock, 35W TDP Ryzen 5 4400GE: 6-core, 12-thread, 3.3GHz base clock, 35W TDP Ryzen 7 4700GE: 8-core, 16-threads, 3.10GHz base clock, 35W TDP Ryzen 3 PRO 4200G: 4-core, 8-thread, 3.8GHz base clock, 65W TDP Ryzen 5 PRO 4400G: 6-core, 12-thread, 3.7GHz base clock, 65W TDP Ryzen 7 PRO 4700G: 8-core, 16-threads, 3.60GHz base clock, 65W TDP Ryzen 7 4700G: 8-core, 16-threads, 3.60GHz base clock, 65W TDP All seven chips will utilize the same Zen 2 architecture and 7nm process, but also feature an enhanced 7nm Vega GPU core and native support for DDR4-3200 MHz speeds.

  14. AMD Ryzen 4000 desktop APUs are now available from retailers But only in their Pro versions (Image credit: AMD) When AMD introduced its Ryzen 4000G and Ryzen Pro 4000-series ‘Renoir’ processors for consumer and business desktop computers earlier this week, the company noted that such APUs would initially only be available to original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and system integrators (SIs), but not to retailers. As it turns out, you can now buy AMD Ryzen Pro 4000-series processors from multiple retailers in Europe. In addition, the new APUs are already listed in the U.S. AMD’s Ryzen 4000G and Ryzen Pro 4000 ‘Renoir’ processors in AM4 packaging feature four, six or eight cores as well as integrated Radeon Vega graphics. General specifications, such as core count, frequencies, and TDP (35W or 65W) of ‘non-Pro’ and Pro APUs are similar, so is their performance. Meanwhile, the Pro models add such features as a built-in TrustZone security processor, Transparent Secure Memory Encryption (TSME), Secure Boot, TPM 2.0, per-Application security for select applications, content protection, and DASH remote manageability. (Image credit: AMD) Renoir AM4 available now AMD’s Ryzen 4000G and Ryzen Pro 4000 ‘Renoir’ processors in AM4 packaging feature four, six or eight cores as well as integrated Radeon Vega graphics. General specifications, such as core count, frequencies, and TDP (35W or 65W) of ‘non-Pro’ and Pro APUs are similar, so is their performance. Meanwhile, the Pro models add such features as a built-in TrustZone security processor, Transparent Secure Memory Encryption (TSME), Secure Boot, TPM 2.0, per-Application security for select applications, content protection, and DASH remote manageability. Right now, AMD ships regular Ryzen 4000G to large PC makers, whereas the Ryzen Pro 4000 are also available to smaller system integrators (and, perhaps, to value added resellers, VARs). The company plans to offer its Renoir AM4 processors to the channel market later this year, but does not disclose when exactly. Meanwhile, some SIs, which are supposed to sell the new APUs inside their PCs, already sell them separately. At least two retailers from Austria — Mylemon.at, Syswork.at and Haym.info — offer tray versions of AMD’s Ryzen Pro 4750G, Ryzen Pro 5 4650G, and Ryzen Pro 3 4350G APUs and can ship them internationally. Arvutitark.ee, a retailer from Estonia, and Centralpoint.nl, a retailer from the Netherlands, also sell the new APUs. All of these stores either have the said chips in stock, or can ship them within two to four business days. Prices of the new processors vary from retailer to retailer, but in general we are looking at something like this: AMD Ryzen Pro 7 4750G — €310 w/ VAT AMD Ryzen Pro 5 4650G — €145 w/ VAT AMD Ryzen Pro 3 4350G — €190 w/VAT CompSource and ShopBLT, two retailers from the USA, also list the new APUs, but do not say when they can ship them. Interestingly, some versions of the products even come with AMD’s Wraith Stealth cooler. Prices look as follows: AMD Ryzen Pro 7 4750G — $325 - $363 AMD Ryzen Pro 5 4650G — $220 - $248 AMD Ryzen Pro 3 4350G — $153 - $174 To use the new Ryzen Pro 7 4000-series APUs, users will need AM4 motherboards that support them and, preferably, their advanced security capabilities.

  15. AMD could be struggling to keep up with Ryzen 4000 demand Gaming laptop maker XMG claims the APUs are in short supply (Image credit: AMD) AMD is suffering a shortage of Ryzen 4000 ‘Renoir’ APUs, according to gaming laptop and desktop maker XMG. In a surprisingly candid Reddit post, XMG suggested that AMD is struggling to keep up with demand for its desktop APUs after revealing that a shipment of Ryzen 7 4800H units it had scheduled for delivery in mid-August has been delayed. "On July 31 we received an announcement from our ODM that we are facing a serious CPU shortage from AMD in Q3 2020," the Reddit post reads. "Large orders that have recently been confirmed to be shipped from our ODM in the middle and end of August are now supposed to be delayed until the end of September." XMG attributes the shortage to TSMC's tight 7nm supply and the popularity of AMD's latest Zen 2 processors with all laptop manufacturers, which suggests that XMG will unlikely be the only manufacturer affected. "Upon receiving this news on Friday (July 31), we reached out o our corporate contacts in AMD who confirmed that this is an industry-wide shortage and there is no way around it.” XMG has said that customers who have ordered Ryzen 7 4800H-powered laptops can opt to replace with with the Ryzen 5 4600G and receive €100 in compensation. The other alternative is to replace the out-of-stock CPU with an Intel Core i7-10750H at no additional cost, despite the CPU retailing for an additional €100. It seems XMG thinks this might be the best option, as the company is keen to point out the advantages of Intel over AMD, such as "more PCIe lanes for the GPU", "better iGPU driver support' and, according to the company, "better gaming performance." “Intel's single-core performance still has the upper edge in some benchmarks and this can have a positive effect on gaming performance in games that are not fully optimized for multi-core yet," XMG states. We've reached out to AMD for comment, and will update this story as soon as we hear back. Via KitGuru AMD could be struggling to keep up with Ryzen 4000 demand
  16. AMD Ryzen 4000 release date, laptops and specs: everything we know about AMD's next CPUs Will AMD continue its winning spree? (Image credit: Future) AMD Ryzen 4000 is coming at a time when Team Red is sitting on top of the world. According to several analysts, it's selling 40% more processors than its rivals over at Intel and its processors are more popular than ever before. But it doesn't look like AMD plans to slow down any time soon. We've already got a sneak peek at AMD Ryzen 4000 processors for laptops at CES 2020, with AMD promising hugely improved performance across the board - and we might finally see AMD processors in big flagships for the first time in years. Laptops aren't the entire scene, however, and we've heard plenty of whispers about the AMD Zen 3-equipped Ryzen 4000 processors for desktop. These will be based on a 7nm+ manufacturing process and could potentially push clock speeds high enough to really make Intel hurt, especially if Team Blue stays stuck at 14nm on desktop. It is definitely an exciting time for AMD, and there's already so much information and gossip out there about the next generation of Ryzen. We gathered all the most important bits right here in this article so you can stay ahead of the Ryzen 4000 curve. And don't worry, we'll keep this article updated with all the latest news and information, so be sure to bookmark us so you can stay on top of it. Cut to the chase (Image credit: AMD) AMD Ryzen 4000 release date Right out of the gate, we don't know when AMD will be launching its next-generation of Ryzen processors for desktop. Right now, our money is on the Zen 3-backed processors making an appearance at Computex 2020, with a more details announced at E3 2020. This is exactly the approach AMD took with its Ryzen 3rd Generation processors in 2019, but there's one crucial difference. Back at CES 2019, AMD announced Zen 2, the microarchitecture that would later be behind Ryzen 3rd Generation, Threadripper 3rd Generation and Epyc 2nd generation. We expected Team Red to follow suit by announcing Zen 3 with some vague details at CES 2020, but that didn't happen. While we might still see AMD Ryzen 4000 desktop processors make an appearance at Computex 2020 and E3, there's a firm possibility that they'll come at a later date. All we know is that Lisa Su said AMD Ryzen 4000 for desktop will be coming in 2020. We just don't know when in 2020. We did get something at CES 2020, at least, when AMD CEO Lisa Su unveiled the AMD Ryzen 4000 processors for laptops. We do know that AMD Ryzen 4000 processors for laptops will be out in the very near future, and they're potentially much more interesting. There's no specific release date, which is typical for mobile processor lineups. We should start seeing laptops rocking AMD Ryzen 4000 processors by the end of Q1 2020 across both ultraportables and gaming laptops. (Image credit: Shutterstock) AMD Ryzen 4000 Price As far as the laptop chips, the prices of the processors themselves are not relevant to most people, as laptop manufacturers will absorb the price and repackage them. Still, we will probably see prices increase over last-generation AMD laptops, due to the fact that AMD's processors will be behind flagship-class laptops like the upcoming Lenovo Yoga Slim 7. We'll probably see Ryzen 3 laptops starting around the $600 mark, with laptops rocking the Ryzen 7 4800H or 4800U hitting the premium market above $1,000. However, we can be a bit more specific with our speculation on the desktop lineup. AMD Ryzen 3rd Generation saw higher prices than Ryzen 2000, largely due to the introduction of Ryzen 9 processors with up to 16 cores. However, the Ryzen 7 3700X did launch at the same $329 (£319, AU$519) price point as the Ryzen 7 2700X that came before it. Due to the success of chips like the Ryzen 9 3900X and 3950X, however, we fully expect AMD to follow suit with the Ryzen 4000 lineup. For reference, we included the pricing of AMD Ryzen 3000 processors below. We expect the pricing to stay roughly the same for the next generation. AMD Ryzen 9 3950X: $749 (about £590, AU$1,080) AMD Ryzen 9 3900X: $499 (about £390, AU$720) AMD Ryzen 7 3800X: $399 (about £310, AU$580) AMD Ryzen 7 3700X: $329 (about £260, AU$480) AMD Ryzen 5 3600X: $249 (about £200, AU$360) AMD Ryzen 5 3600: $199 (about £160, AU$290) AMD Ryzen 5 3400G: $149 (£139, AU$240) AMD Ryzen 3 3300G: $99 (£94, AU$144) (Image credit: AMD) AMD Ryzen 4000 Specs Right now we know the most about the AMD Ryzen 4000 mobile lineup, so that's where we're going to start. These will be the first 7nm processors to make their way to laptops, and with that they bring some huge benefits. The biggest of these is, just like Ryzen 3000 desktop before it, core counts. Even with ultraportable laptops, which have previously been limited to 4 core/8 thread configurations, you're getting 8 cores and 16 threads. This is a huge improvement, and even though clock speeds are limited to 4.2GHz - or a bit higher with 25W configurations - users should see massive gains in productivity workloads. However, what's odd is that only every other SKU has hyperthreading. For example, the AMD Ryzen 7 4700U has 8 cores and 8 threads, whereas the 4800U has 8 cores and 16 threads. Both of the announced H-Series chips for mobile have hyper-threading however, along with higher base clock speeds. One of the key features of this AMD Ryzen 4000 series for laptops is going to be the integrated graphics performance. Now, we haven't had a chance to test this yet, of course, but AMD is promising a boost of up to 28% over Intel's Ice Lake when it comes to graphics performance. These chips will not be in gaming laptops, however, but when you just want to get in a quick Overwatch match on your lunch break, it will make a major difference. We went ahead and listed the core specs of each of the laptop processors. AMD Ryzen 7 4800U: 8 cores, 16 threads | 1.8GHz base, 4.2GHz boost | 12MB cache AMD Ryzen 7 4700U: 8 cores, 8 threads | 2.0GHz base, 4.1GHz boost | 12MB cache AMD Ryzen 5 4600U: 6 cores, 12 threads | 2.1GHz base, 4.0GHz boost | 11MB cache AMD Ryzen 5 4500U: 6 cores, 6 threads | 2.3GHz base, 4.0GHz boost | 11MB cache AMD Ryzen 3 4300U: 4 cores, 4 threads | 2.7GHz base, 3.7GHz boost | 6MB cache AMD Ryzen 7 4800H: 8 cores, 16 threads | 2.9GHz base, 4.2GHz boost | 12MB cache AMD Ryzen 5 4600H: 6 cores, 12 threads | 3.0GHz base, 4.0GHz boost | 11MB cache We know far less about desktop, however. Beyond the fact we know it'll be revealed in 2020, Zen 3 is largely an enigma wrapped in mystery. It will be based on a refinement of the 7nm process found in Zen 2, but any more specific information is purely in the realm of rumor. There are rumors that it will be based on TSMC's new 7nm EUV (extreme ultraviolet) process, similar to what's rumored to be seen in Nvidia Ampere. If this is true, the processors could be much more power efficient, which could see clock speeds see a sizable bump - which could seriously threaten Intel's chips in the gaming scene. Another thing that could make Intel start sweating is the rumor that with Ryzen 4000, AMD may introduce more powerful hyperthreading, with each physical core having four simultaneous processing threads, as opposed to the two found on today's silicon. This is a rumor we'd definitely take with a grain of salt, but if it's true it could even further widen the gap between AMD and Intel when it comes to multi-threaded workloads. It's unlikely that we'll see huge core count bumps with this generation, like we did last year. Instead, AMD will probably use the EUV process to boost performance while cutting power consumption. This does mean that there likely won't be much of a reason to upgrade if you already have a Ryzen 3000 chip. Still, we won't know what AMD Ryzen 4th Generation processors will look like until we see them announced by Team Red. We'll be sure to update this article as soon as we hear more about AMD's next desktop chips and once we've been able to actually test the laptop models.

  17. AMD Ryzen 4000 desktop CPUs rumored to support existing AM4 motherboards Users will be able to get more mileage out of second-gen B450 chipset (Image credit: Tomshw) AMD’s hotly-anticipated Ryzen 4000 ‘Vermeer’ desktop processors will be compatible with existing AM4 motherboards, according to laptop maker XMG. In a Reddit thread spied by TechPowerUp, XMG – best known for its 16-core, 32-thread Apex 15 laptop – appears to confirm that board makers will expand the compatibility of their existing motherboards to support AMD’s next-generation desktop CPUs. In the post, in which an XMG staffer talks up the firm’s Ryzen 3950X-powered gaming laptop, they let slip: “Ryzen 4000 series are slated to be compatible with 2nd-gB450 Chipset via Microcode Update.” Though there’s no official word from Team Red yet, this all but confirms that AMD’s 'Vermeer' Desktop CPUs, along with its Ryzen 4000 'Renoir' APUs, will support B450-based AM4 motherboards. As pointed out by Wccftech, this also suggests that the higher-end X470, current X570 and the upcoming B550 motherboards will also feature support for AMD's next-gen Zen 3 family of processors. Easy upgrades This is good news for anyone with a B450 motherboard and, if true, means the AM4 platform would support all four generations of AMD’s Ryzen processors. Intel, on the other hand, isn’t quite so generous: it typically limits CPU compatibility, with its incoming 10th-generation Comet Lake-S lineup rumored to require a new 400-series motherboard built around the new LGA 1200 socket. The report notes that the Ryzen 4000 series will be the last-generation of Zen-based processors to be built around the AM4 socket, with AMD’s Ryzen 4000 lineup – set to be based on the Zen 4 architecture – moving to a new socket and chipset. It remains unclear when AMD Ryzen 4000 desktop will arrive, recent rumors suggested that the processor lineup will be launched in August or September, likely at the rescheduled Computex 2020 – if that show even goes through. The Zen 3-based CPUs are expected to deliver a significant step up over AMD’s current Zen 2 CPUs, with 10-15% IPC gains, faster clocks, and higher core counts than ever before.

  18. AMD Ryzen 4000 mobile CPUs may be close based on recent product listings The Intel killers are coming (Image credit: tom's) We may not have to wait much longer for AMD's Ryzen 4000 mobile processors. The much-anticipated 7nm mobile processors have shown up in product listings on Amazon for multiple Asus gaming laptops in China and Canada. The early product listings were spotted by Tom's Hardware and include two versions of the Asus ROG Zephyrus G14 seen earlier this year at CES. There was also a product listing for an Asus TUF gaming laptop. While that third model is listed as having the AMD Ryzen 7 4800H processor that we've already learned about from AMD, the two Zephyrus G14 models show their processors as a Ryzen 7 4800HS. The Ryzen 7 4800H is a known commodity, with an 8-core/16-thread design and a 2.9GHz base clock that can boost up to 4.2GHz. We've seen it in early Ryzen 4000 benchmarks that show it blasting past competing Intel chips and even topping the Ryzen 5 3600 in one benchmark. The Ryzen 7 4800HS, however, is not so well known. It will presumably be much the same as that 4800H, but may have different on-board graphics or offer lower thermals to better fit into thin-and-light laptops. Tom's Hardware suggests it may be the latter. A March release date? The product listings on Amazon China suggest the three laptops will release on March 31. That may feel soon enough, but Tom's Hardware had also spotted similar listings on Newegg Canada that had an even earlier release date: March 16. So, we could be seeing AMD's new laptop processors in the wild in a matter of days. at which point it may be time for Intel to start sweating. In most of the leaked benchmarks we've seen, AMD Ryzen 4000 laptop processors trounced Intel's competing offerings in terms of both raw CPU performance as well as integrated graphics performance. AMD already appears to be pushing Intel out of the way in the desktop space with its Ryzen processors, based on the sales figures we've learned from one retailer. But, Intel is a little better entrenched in the mobile PC marketplace. Close relationships with laptop manufacturers have helped ensure that, but AMD has started finding some inroads. Last year, we saw Microsoft embrace AMD in the Surface Laptop 3, albeit only in one model. That model didn't use a Zen 2 processor, though. AMD's latest chips may have far more appeal thanks to the efficiency improvements offered by the shift to a 7nm process, which comes alongside increased power and impressive core counts.

  19. AMD Ryzen 4000 ‘Renoir’ leak hints at a seriously powerful 8-core APU Doubling up on the quad-core flagship of Ryzen 3000 APUs (Image credit: AMD) AMD Ryzen desktop APUs are about to get a major boost and step up to 8-cores, at least going by a leaked benchmark. The result for what speculation contends is an AMD Ryzen 4000 ‘Renoir’ desktop APU shows an 8-core, 16-thread chip which would double up on the current Ryzen 3000 APUs that are led by a quad-core part (the Ryzen 5 3400G). As you can see, the benchmark spotted by TUM_APISAK (and Komachi – both of whom are the source of many hardware leaks on Twitter) comes from User Benchmark and shows an 8-core chip which is clocked at 3GHz with boost to 3.95GHz. The User Benchmark score itself was recorded as 86.2%. Of course, we need to take any leak with a sizeable amount of caution, and assuming this is a genuine AMD part, the clock speeds reflect an engineering sample chip, so aren’t representative of the final performance you can expect. The processor was benchmarked in an ASRock B550 motherboard and will reportedly support not just this and X570 boards, but also B450 and X470 products. As Wccftech reports, _rogame (another high-profile Twitter leaker) also chimed in on this one, claiming that there are currently (at least) two Renoir APUs undergoing testing, both 8-core models, one running at 3GHz and one at 3.5GHz, with the GPU purportedly clocked at 1750MHz in both cases (he’s guessing that the Vega integrated graphics will be 8 compute units – the same as the Ryzen 9 4900HS which is also clocked at that speed). Performance jump Assuming all this speculation is on the mark, or at least near it, we can expect a considerable jump in performance with AMD’s Ryzen 4000 APUs compared to existing models. While User Benchmark scores are not the first benchmark you’d turn to in an ideal world, the result of 86.2% puts this alleged sample chip roughly in line with the sort of performance you’ll get from the Ryzen 7 4800H (which averages at 86% bang on in the User Benchmark database). For comparison, the Ryzen 5 3400G comes in at an average of 74%, and of course the jump to 8-cores will be more than welcome for those looking for a compelling APU, although obviously this alleged top-end chip will come with a price premium compared to the quad-core 3400G. Pricing will likely be pitched some way under AMD’s Ryzen 7 3700X 8-core desktop CPU, although exactly how far under is of course a complete guessing game at this point. It’s further expected that as well as this 8-core model, there will be a quad-core offering for those who don’t want to fork out that much for an APU. According to Wccftech’s sources, the new AMD Ryzen 4000 APUs are expected to launch in July. The existing Ryzen 5 3400G offers a base clock of 3.7GHz with boost to 4.2GHz and the integrated GPU is Vega 11 Graphics clocked at 1400MHz, with the chip having a TDP of 65W (the latter is expected to be maintained with the incoming 8-core model).

  20. You can officially use your X570 or B550 board with upcoming AMD Ryzen 4000 processors If you have an X570 or B550 motherboard, you're good to upgrade (Image credit: Future) When the AM4 platform was unveiled in 2016, AMD committed to support it with future processor launches until 2020. And, well, 2020 is here and it looks like AMD isn't going to stop supporting the socket any time soon. In a blog post today, AMD confirmed that AMD Zen 3-based processors in the Ryzen 4000 lineup will officially support X570 and B550 motherboards. However, the news isn't quite as rosy as you may expect. X570 and B550 are going to be the only legacy AM4 chipsets that will support AMD Ryzen 4000 processors when they release later this year. That means if you're rocking an X470 board from 2018, you're going to have to upgrade if you want one of the 7nm+ processors. AMD cites the limitations of the flash memory chips on the best motherboards, which store all the BIOS and Microcode updates necessary to support new processors as they come out. There's only so much space, and especially X370 boards now support way more processors than pretty much any other board in a long time. As for whether or not AMD will retire the AM4 socket any time soon, Team Red left that open. It said that it "will depend on the schedule of industry I/O technologies." Essentially, if there are shiny new bits of tech that AMD has to support on its motherboards, it will have to update the socket in order to maximize compatibility. Still, at least your expensive X570 board will let you upgrade your CPU this year – hopefully that continues for a couple of years.

  21. AMD Ryzen 4000-powered Microsoft Surface device may be coming soon It looks like the Surface Laptop 3 won’t be Redmond’s last AMD machine (Image credit: Future) Microsoft could be gearing up to launch Surface devices equipped with AMD’s newly-launched Ryzen 4000 APUs. Microsoft launched its first AMD-powered Surface device last year in the form the 15-inch variant of the Surface Laptop 3, which packs a custom Ryzen 7 CPU with integrated Radeon RX Vega 11 graphics. At the time, the two firms touted the chip as “the fastest mobile processor AMD has ever made.” It seems this won’t be the last time Microsoft decides to ditch Intel in favor of Team Red, as a listing in the 3DMark 11 database shows an incoming Surface machine that packs an AMD Ryzen 5 4500U paired with a Radeon RX 5300M graphics card. The listing, spied by hardware leaker @_rogame, doesn’t reveal much else about the mysterious device, nor does it confirm whether it’ll join Microsoft’s Surface Laptop, Surface Book or Surface Tablet lineup. The tipster speculates the model listed is likely a new variant of the Surface Book, though another Twitter user points out that the detachable screen feature “is built around Intel parts.” With that in mind, it’s perhaps more likely that Microsoft is planning an AMD variant of the upcoming Surface Laptop 4. Diving in While the device’s identity remains unknown, it looks set to be a powerful machine, with leaks claim the Ryzen 5 4500U easily outperforms Intel’s 10nm Ice Lake Intel Core i7-1065G7 CPU; early benchmarks show Intel’s 10nm chip is some 29% slower when compared to its unreleased AMD rival. The processor is a hexa-core Zen 2-based Renoir APU manufactured on TSMC's 7nm FinFET process that’s designed with thin and light devices in mind. The 15W chip has a base clock speed of 2.3GHz and a boost clock of 4GHz, and in addition to the APU’s six CPU cores, it also integrates a Radeon RX Vega 6 integrated GPU that runs up to 1,500MHz. However, as pointed out by Tom’s Hardware, the leaked listing suggests Microsoft could be planning to ramp things up in the GPU department by pairing the APU with a discrete graphics card from AMD. It doesn't specify the exact model of the device's GPU but points to 3GB of onboard memory. We don’t yet know when Microsoft is planning to show off its next-generation Surface devices, but if Redmond sticks to its typical launch schedule, expect to see another AMD-powered device from Microsoft sometime in October.
