According to Geekbench, AMD may have plans to release an entry level mobile Rembrandt based APU for laptops.
This APU features the Zen 3+ (6nm TSMC) process which is an optimized variant of AMD’s 7nm based Zen 3 architecture. The graphics solution used in this APU utilizes AMD’s RDNA 2 architecture.
Geekbench shows that this SKU has the OPN code, “100-000000552-40_Y” which may not indicate much. Other specifications point towards a 4 cores / 8 threads CPU running at a base frequency of 2.90GHz. The base clock frequency can be boosted upto 4.1GHz.
Suited with 8MB of L3 cache and 2MB of L2 cache, this APU ships with the RDNA 2 based “GFX1035” GPU. This GPU has 3 compute units and 192 stream processors runing at a clock speed of 1600MHz.
The Rembrandt APU lineup currently has 2 GPUs, namely the 680M which features 12 CUs (Compute Units) and the 660M having 6 CUs (Compute Units). Following this pattern, it is likely that the GPU this APU utilizes will be the 640M.
Performance wise, the Rembrandt APU performs similar to the Barcelo based Ryzen 3 5425U APU, where the GPU also shows a close resemblance to AMD’s Vega 11 iGPU.
No information has been revealed regarding the release date of these APUs, however, we can expect a QS (Qualification Sample) soon.
