AMD's Ryzen architecture will soon be releasing in APU form, first on mobile and then desktop platforms offering the combination of Ryzen CPU cores and a Vega GPU component. 
 
Ryzen mobile is set to release before the end of this year, starting on consumer mobile products, with a planned release in Q1 2018 for consumer desktops. These Ryzen-based APUs will be a key part of AMD's mobile strategy, offering both strong CPU and GPU components at low TDPs. 
 
An APU called the Ryzen 5 2500U has appeared on the Geekbench 4 database, a CPU that offers 4 CPU cores and 8 threads with a base clock of 2GHz an unknown boost clock. This APU is thought to be a mobile model, given the low base clock speed and the U suffix on the product name. In Intel's terminology, U typically means Ultra-Low-Power, a name that is typically reserved for mobile products. AMD has borrowed Intel's naming scheme before, so AMD's use of the U suffix is not unusual.   
 
When compared to AMD's Bristol Ridge A12 9800, the Ryzen 5 2500U dominates, offering over 900 more points in single-threaded CPU performance and over 50% more multi-threaded CPU performance. Note that the A12 9800 is a desktop APU with a TDP of 65W and a maximum CPU clock speed of 4.2GHz.

AMD has promised huge performance boosts for their upcoming Ryzen Mobile APUs, finally placing AMD into a competitive position in the mobile market.

What will differentiate AMD's Ryzen mobile APUs from Intel's mobile processors is their inclusion of Vega graphics, which should give them a distinct advantage in gaming applications. This APU isn't going to be on par with dedicated gaming GPUs, though it will almost certainly deliver mobile users more GPU performance than other CPU integrated graphics solutions.

On die Vega graphics? Holy moly these are gonna be a beast.
Intel is screwed when it comes to mobile. There e cpus are all still 2 cores!!!!! They have what was it 2 variants of 4 cores? That's totally unacceptable these days. Ryzen is gonna be a blessingQuote

Holy moly that kind of heat/powerdraw. Not good for mobile Quote

Won't really be an issue. It's not a full Vega chip. Probably only 16CUs at mostQuote

I'm waiting for a Ryzen/Vega APU in a device like a GPD Win. Perfect for ultra compact gaming, at least I hope so!Quote
