Rumor: AMD Raven Ridge APU; Vega GPU With HBM2 Memory Coming 2017
Rumors claim that there will be an AMD Raven Ridge APU coming out next year and that it will feature a GPU based on Vega. Vega is the upcoming GPU architecture from AMD and though we do not know much about it there is still a lot of excitement and anticipation surrounding the upcoming architecture keeping in mind how great Polaris 10 was. Rumours also suggest the presence of HBM2 memory.
The high-end AMD Raven Ridge APU will feature 4 Zen cores, 8 threads, 1020 Vega core support for DDR4 memory, 16 CUs and a TDP between 35W and 95W. There will also be a lower end version will not feature the HBM2 memory and it will feature 12CUs and the TDP will be between 4-35W. The AMD Raven Ridge APU series will be made on the 14nm process.
Recently we heard rumours about AMD working on something like this but we did not know what it was. Now we have more information regarding what the company is working on.
We also heard that AMD was working on merging a CPU and a GPU together, this might not be it but it could be something worth checking out when we see a demo of some sort.
Vega is something we have been waiting for and with the release of this AMD Raven Ridge APU, we might be able to learn what the new upcoming architecture will bring to the table.
