AMD's CES 2022 presentation is scheduled for tonight but the CES Innovation Awards page perhaps inadvertently already spilled the beans on some of the information on upcoming Ryzen 6000 series Rembrandt APUs. For example, the new chips will debut Microsoft's Pluton security processor.
More purported details about AMD's CES announcements are now out thanks to VideoCardz who has posted leaked presentation slides. These slides outline upcoming Rembrandt as well as other details related to AMD's future products like the Socket AM5 motherboards, Zen 4, and more.
First up, we have a new desktop CPU dubbed the Ryzen 7 5800X3D that is slated for launch in Spring of 2022. If you're wondering what the 3D at the end of the SKU means, it's probably indicative of the built-in 3D V-cache that AMD had shown off back at Computex 2021. With this technology, AMD promised a 15% average gaming performance improvement and the 5800X3D too is labeled as an "Extreme Gaming Performance" part. The Ryzen 7 5800X3D is likely going to take on Intel's Alder Lake-S CPUs as the latter has retaken the gaming crown from AMD.
The slide also shows next-gen Socket AM5 and 5nm Zen 4 debuting in the second half (2H) of 2022.
Up next, we have a slide showing the mobile 6nm Rembrandt 6000 series APU lineup. As usual, there will be H-series high-performance parts alongside lower power U-series parts. The most exciting aspect of Rembrandt is perhaps the inclusion of RDNA 2 graphics and the top end Rembrandt SKUs are apparently featuring up to 12 Compute Units (CUs) with boost speeds rated for up to 2.4GHz.
There are also a few Ryzen 5000 mobile parts in this lineup that will continue to use Zen 3 architecture and Vega GPU cores.
Finally, we have a slide showing the feature-set that the 2022 Ryzen mobile platform will bring. USB 4.0 and PCIe Gen4 are the new interfaces that are supported on Rembrandt. Alongside these, AV1 decoding and DDR5, LPDDR5 support is also coming to the Ryzen APUs.
While the above slide is about mobile Rembrandt, desktop RDNA 2 APUs will also likely come with a similar feature-set.
