AMD’s Ryzen 4000-series “Renoir” CPUs have proven to be a pretty sweet deal, but when is red team dumping Vega and empowering its APU family with its latest and greatest GPU architecture, RDNA? Not for a while, it seems. Igor Wallossek has posted a handful of new leaks, which reveal that Ryzen 5000 “Cezanne” – Renoir’s successor – will still be stuck with a Vega-based iGPU (Vega 20, to be exact).
Apparently, the RDNA architecture will not enter the picture until the “Van Gough” and “Rembrandt” generations. While the low-powered Van Gough family will be the first to incorporate an RDNA-based iGPU, Rembrandt will be the first to flaunt both RDNA graphics and Zen 3 cores. Needless to say, most eyes are on the latter.
Wallossek also revealed that Ryzen 4000 “Vermeer” chips are currently at the B0 stepping stage, which implies that they’re all set for mass production. Despite rumors of a delay into 2021, AMD has confirmed that its first Zen 3-based CPUs will surface later this year.
