Hardware leakers have shared a new road map that purportedly reveals AMD’s mobile APU plans for next year. They include the successors to the current high-performance lineup of Ryzen 5000 Series Mobile Processors, “Rembrandt-H” and “Rembrandt-U,” which will supposedly feature optimized Zen 3+ cores on a 6-nanometer process, Navi 2 (RDNA 2) graphics, and support for DDR5/LPDDR5 memory. The road map also suggests that AMD’s lower-ended, Zen 2-based Ryzen 5000 “Lucienne” successors, “Barcelo,” will be upgraded to standard Zen 3 cores but feature older Vega-based graphics.

AMD’s Van Gogh APUs, which compete in the ULP (Ultra-Low Power) segment, will debut sometime this year. Linux patches have revealed that the Zen 2 chips will sport Navi 2 graphics and support LPDDR5 memory. Dragon Crest is the rumored successor to Van Gogh. Since Dragon Crest seems to utilize the same recipe as Van Gogh, it’s rational to assume that Dragon Crest could be a simple refresh.
