Despite the fact that AMD processors of the Rafael generation, based on the Zen 4 architecture, will appear, it seems, only at the end of next year, information about them is gradually becoming more and more.
The source shared a slide show that allegedly dates back to March 2020. As a reminder, Raphael was previously scheduled to launch this year, so that’s okay.
This slide confirms the information we know and also reveals new information. So, Ryzen 7000 desktop processors will have a TDP of up to 105W, and mobile processors – up to 65W. The chipset will be manufactured using 5nm process technology, and the input/output chip will switch to 7nm process technology.
The number of cores will not increase. Expect two cubs with eight cores each with 32MB of cache. Although the latest developments could make it possible to triple this volume.
Processors (possibly on all models) will integrate a GPU of the Navi 2 generation, that is, in the RDNA2 architecture.
We must understand that the information is very outdated, so it may not correspond to reality somewhere. For example, the latest data indicates that the maximum TDP of desktop processors is 120 watts, and the APU should appear under the codename Phoenix.
