AMD Prepares “Van Gogh” Custom APU With Navi 21/23 RDNA2 Architecture iGPU

AMD is truly preparing a monster custom APU called “Van Gogh” after the famous Dutch painter Vincent Van Gogh. This chip differs from upcoming Renoir APUs with it’s integrated GPU featuring powerful Navi 21 or 23 powered by RDNA2 graphics architecture based on 7nm process technology. By luck, twitter user Komachi_Ensaka had detected this APU in preliminary drivers where AMD is on the way to fully optimize it before the official launch.

Very accurate table was created by Komachi to ensure any confusion would not distract specific research. Particularly, the GFX10 series graphics chips are associated very close to each other including GFX1031 is Navi 22, GFX1030 is Navi 21 and GFX1032 is Van Gogh APU itself. Still, the APU’s processor unit is not revealed yet in terms of core count and clock frequencies.


For obvious reasons, the custom powerful APUs are always included in consoles like Playsation and Xbox as well as they are also found in last generation of Intel NUC Mini PC Performance-G Kit featuring Vega M GH with 24 CUs (Compute Units) that beats Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 4GB GDDR5 GPU easily. So here is the catch, similar to Vega 24 GPUs the Navi 21, 22 and 24 are might be created for AMD’s future Mini PC Embedded models in which Ryzen 4000 series mobile processors are connected to RDNA2 Navi GPUs through Infinity Fabric interconnect. Recently, Intel suddenly discontinued partnership with AMD to create next gen NUC products. In other scenarios Van Gogh APU can be used in Gaming laptops to compete against upcoming Intel integrated GPUs and Nvidia Max-Q versions. It’s all just a guess so take it as a grain of salt. Big revelation of Van Gogh APU with Navi RDNA2 graphics is a huge point for future reference.
