AMD 7th Gen APU Specs Leaked, 50% Faster than Kaveri
AMD is just a week away from unveiling its 7th generation APUs at the Computex 2016, but before that could happen the specs for these APUs have already been leaked out. These processors will be released in June along with AM4 motherboards, which will be the first to introduce Excavator on the mainstream desktop platform.
This specs leak comes from WCCFtech, which suggests that all six of the AMD’s 7th gen APU variants consume power between 65W to 35W, support AM4 socket and utilize DDR4-2400 memory.
Moreover, the new Excavator based APUs are expected to offer over 50% more performance than the previous Kaveri-based APUs, and around 20% of Carrizo Mobility.
According to the leak, the flagship AMD SKUs will have:
- 12 compute cores.
- 4 compute cores will form compute side, while remaining 8 will form graphics side.
- The high end APUs will have 4 x86 Excavator based cores, which will be clocked at 3.7 GHz with 2 MB L2 cache.
- Along with 8 GCN 3.0 CUs and a total of 512 streaming processors.
- The low power APUs will be clocked at 2.9 GHz and 3.5 GHz on boost.
The performance lineup of SKUs will feature:
- 10 compute cores, 4 for compute and remaining 6 for graphics.
- The x86 Excavator cores will be clocked at 3.5 GHz, 3.8 GHz on boost with 2 MB L2 cache.
- The 6 graphics CUs have 384 GCN 3.0 cores.
- The low power variants will be clocked at 2.8 GHz and 3.5 GHz on boost.
Last but not the least, the budget SKUs will feature:
- 6 compute cores.
- The two x86 Excavator cores will be clocked at 3.5 GHz and 3.8 GHz on boost with 1 MB of L2 cache.
- The graphic side will have 4 CUs with 256 GCN 3.0 stream processors.
- The low power variant will be clocked at 3.0 GHz and 3.4 GHz on boost.
It is important to mention that these specs are not official, so expect them to change when AMD officially reveals the 7th gen AM4 APUs at Computex 2016.
