But when can we expect to see Zen based APUs?

AMD's Bristol Ridge AM4 CPUs will soon be hitting retail

AMD's Bristol Ridge AM4 CPUs will soon be hitting retail

 
Today it has been announced that AMD's Bristol-Ridge APUs will be having a retail release, filling in a market segment below Ryzen 3 and offering price points that are said to be under £100. 
 
These APUs will be the first to be released on the AM4 platform, outside of the OEM space. These CPUs will be based on AMD's older Excavator CPU architecture and GCN GPU architecture, which means that the performance of these parts will not be revolutionary.  
 
Even so, these CPUs will offer their users attractive pricepoints, with the most expensive model being said to cost less than £100. Sadly final pricing has not been confirmed at this time, though these CPUs are expected to hit retail shelves within the next few weeks.

AMD's Bristol Ridge AM4 CPUs will soon be hitting retail

 

Being based on Excavator, these CPUs are not expected to offer revolutionary performance levels, though they will certainly offer a lot of value for money when building basic office or web browsing machines. It will be interesting to see how these APUs will perform in modern games, though it certainly will not be able to compete with any modern CPU + Dedicated GPU setup.

Are these the supposed Ryzen APUs but turns out to be Bristol Ridge? Or are we still expecting Ryzen APUs this year?Quote

Ryzen APUs are Raven Ridge and supposedly launching late this year or next year. Bristol Ridge has been available to OEMs since last year. I would go with what WYP said about filling the gap below Ryzen 3 because all they have for that is all the APUs on FM2 and AM1 which need phasing out.Quote

I don't remember reading about Ryzen + GPU. It was always the story with older architecture being reused on AM4 socket for APUs.Quote

There is one based on Zen coming called Raven Ridge. Will even be called Ryzen as well. There's been leaks of a Ryzen APU using a Vega based GPU.

I'm genuinely excited for Raven Ridge because Zen + Vega would make fantastic 4K HTPCsQuote
