AMD Gray Hawk APU; 4 Cores, 8 Threads, 7nm Zen+, Coming 2019
There have been a number of rumors and speculations about what AMD is working on for the future and this is mainly because there has been no official roadmap from the company that tells us all this. So people are relying on these speculations and leaks. Here we have reports that claim that it is possible that there could be an AMD Gray Hawk APU coming out by 2019.
AMD Gray Hawk APU is supposed to be based on Zen+. We have already talked about Zen and the potential that it has to offer and I will say it again. If AMD is looking to take the fight to Intel then Zen better be worth all the wait.
We can never anticipate what a product will be like before launch and this applies here as well. Until Zen comes out and we have tested this AMD Gray Hawk APU, we cannot be sure what this APU or this new architecture has to offer.
We can’t rely on company claims all the way either, but reports claim that the AMD Gray Hawk APU will be a quad-core APU with 8 thread and a TDP of 10W. If this is true and AMD can pull off a quad-core chip with such a low power draw then that would be something very impressive and it would put the AMD Gray Hawk APU in the limelight. This would make the chip a great contender and a suitable option for main consumers who are looking for a power efficient solution.
Gray Hawk is the codename AMD is giving to their 7nm chips. We recently talked about how the company is skipping the 10nm process and going directly to the 7nm chips. This is a risky move but with high risk comes high rewards, a simple rule of business.
