AMD Cezanne leak hints at next-gen laptop CPUs with RDNA 2 graphics that go for Intel’s jugular

AMD Ryzen 4000 (codenamed Renoir) cell chips are still extremely a great deal clean on the scene – and making a massive impression in phrases of competitiveness in the laptop computer environment – but we’ve currently noticed a leak for next-gen APUs apparently codenamed Cezanne (a title which has been performing the rounds in leaks for some time now).

The adhere to-on chips, which logically will be the Ryzen 5000 sequence, are shaping up to be anything genuinely special, at the very least going by some information spilled on Twitter by _rogame (as spotted by TechPowerup), a components leaker with a significant pedigree.

So as you can see, next-gen Cezanne APUs will be constructed on Zen three and will offer a ‘significant’ strengthen in efficiency compared to Ryzen 4000 processors, which are currently proving to be excellent performers.

Potentially even far more exciting is the fact that the built-in graphics could come courtesy of Navi 23 and be RDNA two-powered, which would be a key leap for wallet-friendly gaming laptops making use of these chips.

Nevertheless, we have to deal with that chance with warning, since as _rogame observes, the built-in GPU is still an ‘unknown’ and this is basically what he thinks is most probably to be the scenario. For that subject, we have to deal with this full rumor with a healthy diploma of skepticism, of training course.

Dell leak

That said, it is backed up by a 2nd rumor floating all over, spotted by Notebookcheck.web and citing an additional Twitter leaker who uncovered information (accidentally posted on an AMD local community discussion board) that issue to Dell organizing 15.6-inch laptops which will use the Cezanne-H APU.

As _rogame will make apparent, these Cezanne chips are probably set to acquire up the struggle from Intel’s incoming Tiger Lake processors with built-in Xe graphics, which as we not long ago noted, are set to deal with AMD’s Ryzen 4000 cell CPUs.

Nevertheless, if Tiger Lake laptops start arriving at the finish of 2020 as planned, next-gen Cezanne APUs could be sizzling on their heels – they really should arrive in a identical timeframe to Ryzen 4000, indicating this time next 12 months, _rogame thinks. The fact that they are purportedly pin appropriate with Ryzen 4000 really should imply that laptop computer manufacturers won’t want to adjust motherboard models a great deal for Cezanne, either, which will assist pace the arrival of portables with these APUs in them.

And these Cezanne chips could be anything genuinely special, definitely if this chatter from the grapevine is on the cash – there is no understating how a great deal impression built-in RDNA two graphics could probably have in the funds gaming laptop computer category (for these who want to stay away from the price of a discrete GPU).

And that is a genuinely worrying prospect for Intel, which definitely have to keep onto its lead in the laptop computer environment, where it’s presently dominant (following acquiring well and genuinely misplaced the initiative in the desktop room to AMD Ryzen processors).
