AMD’s event at CES 2021 may come with the appearance of the Zen 3 APUs; specifically, the presentation of the Ryzen 7 5700G . It leaks on USB-IF, so it’s a reality.
Although AMD APUs are not the best selling product, we have always seen two ranges of Ryzen for desktop: Ryzen 3 and Ryzen 5. Zen 3 would bring the novelty of the inclusion of the first Ryzen 7 APU with 8 cores and 16 threads with a 65W TDP and graphics, Vega? We will know soon!
Ryzen 7 5700G appears on USB-IF
Everything indicates that this month will be full of presentations of new products, and it is that CES 2021 will be talking. In the case of AMD, we will see the Ryzen 5000 chips for laptops (Cezanne), but the “ace up the sleeve” may be this APU or some new RX 6000.
This Ryzen 7 5700G would come with 8 cores, 16 threads that would work under the Zen 3 design. The node used would be TSMC’s “enhanced” 7nm, but the key here is, what integrated graphics will it carry ? It would be a “hoot” if they were RDNA2, but the information we have is that it will be Vega 7 (4th generation).
The leak occurs in USB-IF, in which AMD has certified this 5700G with the latest specifications USB 3.2, Power Delivery, etc. Logically, it will be compatible with the AM4 socket, and its TDP may be 65W . The source assures that it will be for the consumer market, distancing itself from the OEM option.
Although we do not know the frequencies it will offer, we remember that APUs tend to come with lower frequencies than standard desktop Ryzen processors. Yesterday, the guys at VideoCardz leaked Cezanne’s DIE (Zen 3), which would correspond to the Ryzen 5000 for laptops (the ones that would succeed Renoir). This DIE would be more than 20mm² larger than Renoir, due to increased L3 cache.
This source assured that Cezanne will bring the same core cap: 8 cores and 16 threads at most. Likewise, they will bring PCI-Express 4.0 support for those who want to use powerful SSDs, such as the Samsung 980 Pro.
Rembrandt, successor to Cezanne?
In fact, it seems that AMD’s idea is to reserve RDNA2 for the next line of APUs, which will be released next year (2022) and will be called Rembrandt . In theory, they would arrive for laptops, they will follow the 6nm process , their architecture will be Zen 3+ and their GPU will be RDNA2 .
We consider Cezanne to be a transitional family for several reasons:
- Starting in 2022 , AMD has contracted with TSMC to manufacture chips in a 6nm (Rembrandt) and 5nm (Zen 4) process.
- Socket AM5 will arrive with new features, among which is DDR5 and LPDDR5 memory.
With all this, we recommend that you follow us because AMD plans to launch many products in 2021, or at least that’s what _rogame said a few weeks ago.
