Leaked roadmap points towards powerful 6nm Zen 3/RDNA 2 AMD APUs

AMD has big plans for its future CPU and graphics lineups, and in late 2021/early 2022, it looks like AMD’s Zen 3 and RDNA 2 technologies will be coming together with their (codename) Rembrandt processors. 

Today’s Ryzen Mobile processors are based on the company’s Renoir silicon, which offers users up to eight Zen 2 CPU cores and refined Vega graphics. Succeeding Renoir is Cezanne, which will bring with its Zen 3 cores, which should help increase Ryzen Mobile’s single-threaded performance and performance per watt characteristics. With Rembrandt, it looks like AMD plans to deliver larger changes. 

A Twitter user called Partrick Schur noted that Rembrandt will support DDR5-5200 memory, 20x PCIe 4.0 lanes and two USB4 (40Gbps) ports, lining up with existing roadmaps leaks from @MebiuW. This leak further speculates that Rembrandt will feature Zen 3 cores, Navi2 (RDNA 2) graphics, PCIe 4.0 and LPDDR5 and DDR5 memory support. 

The roadmap below was compiled using various images by Videocardz. Note that Rembrandt is said to feature “CVML” support. CVML is expected to signify Computer Visions and Machine Learning, giving Rembrandt some AI computational power. It is also worth noting that Rembrandt could transition to 5nm, depending on the readiness of AMD’s foundry partners. 

With Rembrandt moving to DDR5 memory, it is likely that 2022 will see AMD move to a new CPU socket. This new socket is likely to be called AM5, delivering DDR5 memory support and other new features.
