AMD’s upcoming lineup of CPU’s and GPU’s is extremely promising. We are all anxious about the release of Ryzen 5000 at the upcoming CES 2021 event. As for the other Zen3 based beasts being launched by AMD. We might have an update regarding them.
According to sources, Advanced Micros Devices will be launching a total of two Cezanne flavours in 2021. They will be a 45W and a 15W version, and the 15W version is configurable to a higher TDP.
Fortunately, both the version will be based on AMD’s Zen3 architecture with a Vega 7 iGPU. Reports also indicate that AMD will launch another APU, that is Lucienne-U, which is based on Zen2 and will have a 15W TDP as well. All APUs will be fabricated on the 7nm process from TSMC. VanGogh, with a TDP of just 9W, is also part of the lineup and will be the second Zen2 part manufactured next year.
It is reported that vanilla Zen APU called Pollock with a TDP of just 4.5W and fabricated on the 14nm process is also a part of the Roadmap. AMD will keep its foot on the pedal in 2022 as well. The primary lineup involves the Rembrandt lineup, and they will be in 45W and 15W flavours. And they will be based on AMD’s advanced Zen3+ architecture and will also feature Navi2 iGPUs. Both Rembrandt APUs will be manufactured on TSMC’s 6nm processor. Rembrandt will feature LPDDR5, and AMD’s Barcelo-U will succeed Vangogh with no apparent change and is likely to be a refresh.
All the leaks confirm that AMD is gearing up to take the trophy home next year. Its lineup is as impressive as its performance has been in 2020. Regardless of anything, I am incredibly excited to see how Zen3+ architecture will perform. If this year is any indication, then Nvidia and Intel need to vary AMD’s future accomplishments.
