AMD Rumored to be making a Bristol Ridge APU with R7 370 GPU performance

 

AMD is rumored to be making a Bristol Ridge APU with the GPU performance of an R7 370 with 2x the GPU cores of any previous APU. This rumored APU has not been confirmed by AMD, but if the product does come to market it will easily be the most powerful APU that AMD has ever created for the consumer market, beating even the Xbox One's custom SoC. 

This rumored chip will be made on the existing 28nm process and will use a GCN 3.0 GPU design with Excavator CPU cores, giving this chip several architectural advantages over AMD's existing Kaveri APUs. Bristol Ridge CPUs will use the upcoming AMD AM4 socket and make use of DDR4 memory.

This APU with 16 graphics CUs (Compute Units) will give it a total of 1024 GPU cores, giving it the same core count as an R7 370 or an HD 7850, which is over 2x the number of GPU cores as the Kaveri A10-7850K APU.

Given how much memory bandwidth GPUs require the APU will benefit greatly from the use of DDR4 memory on the AM4 CPU socket, offering much more bandwidth than DDR3 for the power consumption and price.

Basically this chip is almost equal the PS4 chip yet will costs much less even though it has fewer but stronger coresQuote

Get another 370 to go along with it and in Dx12 both should be recognized. That way you get a very cheap yet more than decent gaming machine.Quote

You could probably pair it with the 370x which has better clock speeds and better at overclocking. Although it would probably have to be the first gpu to be used before the internal one. Don't know if it would work, but even if it doesn't that still is quite a cheap yet powerful(relative to price) gaming system.Quote

If its true then its nice to see that they are widening the increasingly smaller performance gap with Intels integrated grahpics.Quote

Now if only they could get better cpu cores to help them maintain that gap.Quote
