AMD Van Gogh APUs to Deliver LPDDR5 Support and RDNA 2 Graphics

While AMD is faithful to the tradition of naming its central processors after famous artists, independent sources manage to put together a “collage” of perspective plans. Details have emerged about Van Gogh’s hybrid processors, which will offer RDNA 2 graphics as part of a processor for the first time. They will also get support for LPDDR5 memory.


The source of revelations about Van Gogh processors was both the already distinguished MebiuW enthusiast in this field and the German developer Patrick Schur, who is gaining weight in this category. The latter said at the end of the outgoing week that Van Gogh processors will combine computational cores with Zen 2 architecture and Navi generation graphics. They also mentioned LPDDR5 support in connection with the BGA design and the TDP level from 7.5 to 18 W. In fact, we were talking about hybrid mobile processors.

MebiuW confirmed this information with a fragment of a presentation telling about AMD’s plans for the next year. It was then that both the Cezanne desktop processors, which would replace the current Renoir, and the mobile Van Gogh processors would appear. This source confirmed that Van Gogh processors will receive Navi 2 (RDNA 2) graphics, support for LPDDR5, and LPDDR4x memory, as well as a new CVML instruction set aimed at accelerating work with computer vision and machine learning.

For Cezanne, the previously mentioned information about the combination of the Zen 3 computing architecture and Vega 7 graphics is confirmed. These processors are capable of supporting DDR4 and LPDDR4x memory, therefore they will be offered in the mobile segment. From the filing of the German developer, it becomes known that Cezanne processors can combine up to eight cores in one complex, while processors with Zen 2 architecture share four cores per complex. This leads to fragmentation of the L3 cache, reducing performance in certain applications such as games. True, it is difficult to call this an innovation, since Matisse processors with Zen 3 architecture also combine eight cores in one CCX. Another thing is that they do not have integrated graphics, and Cezanne will bring this arrangement to the segment of hybrid processors.

Van Gogh and Cezanne processors should debut in the first half of next year, but the most interesting person in the leaks for most enthusiasts is hiding under the Warhol code designation – these are desktop processors with Zen 3 architecture and PCI Express 4.0 support, which are still weakly distinguishing from their predecessors, known under the designation, Vermeer. They should appear in the second half of 2021, and their successors will be the Raphael processors, which AMD can categorically impose on integrated graphics. It is assumed that Warhol processors will become a kind of “Vermeer Refresh” since they will retain both the 7-nm process technology and the computational architecture of Zen 3. Their transition to the new design Socket AM5 is not excluded. Rembrandt APUs due in early 2022, for example
