CES 2020 will be dominated by AMD again. This time around 7nm wonder chips are going to be unveiled including Ryzen Threadripper 3990X with monstrous 64 Cores 128 Threads configuration and of course much anticipated Renoir APUs will see the light. Current generation Picasso APUs possess RX Vega 3, Vega 8, Vega 11 integrated graphics solution within one package. So the Ryzen 5 3400G’s Vega graphics has 11 CUs (Compute Units) each 3 CUs distributed into separate 32KB I$/16KB K$ clusters making them 3+3+3+2 CUs divided in each region. Vega 8 has 3+3+2 CUs distribution and Vega 3 has only one.
Most interesting part here is that twitter user Komachi_Ensaka is very sure that Renoir APUs will have RX Vega 12 with 12 CUs because 7nm transistor shrink allows further additional CUs attachment making them 3+3+3+3 clusters per 32KB I$/16KB K$. This statement most likely confirms about Vega 12 being prepared for CES 2020 because “RENOIR NB RYZEN 9 B12 45W FP6 ” code indicates about Vega CUs being B12 equals to 12 CUs according to Komachi_Ensaka’s interpretation.
Another hardware enthusiast Locuza from Twitter established that upcoming Renoir APUs will have RX Vega 13 and Vega 15 iGPUs thanks to 7nm impressive technology. Previous leaked naming codes did not have any associated B13 or B15 numbers so take these leaks with a pound of salt. If these numbers for Vega 15 with 3+3+3+3+3 clusters are true then Intel Iris Plus iGPUs are in huge trouble. Moreover, Nvidia entry level GPUs might take biggest hit from AMD’s Renoir Vega iGPU powerhouse due to esports games only demand less graphics power since they focus on gameplay experience like PUBG Lite, Fortnite and CS:GO.
