RDNA 4, AMD’s next-generation graphics architecture, will not surface in Ryzen APUs for at least a few more years, according to new rumors out of China that claim AMD plans to incorporate RDNA 3-based iGPUs in its APUs until “at least 2027.” That said, AMD’s next APUs are expected to leverage RDNA 3.5, an updated version of the architecture that will presumably offer some marketable performance gains for users avoiding a graphics card.

AMD’s upcoming Zen 5 lineup includes:

  • Strix Point (Zen 5, RDNA 3.5)
  • Strix Halo (Zen 5, RDNA 3.5)
  • Kraken Point (Zen 5, RDNA 3.5)
