At the beginning of next year, AMD will introduce Ryzen 4000 hybrid processors. These APUs will be called Renoir, and they will be based on the 7 nm Zen 2 architecture. And, as leaks show, the GPU performance in them will rise very significantly.
Today, a well-known insider shared details about the graphics subsystem of these APUs. In the screenshot, as you can see, the processor model itself is not indicated. But we can understand that this APU will receive a graphics core with 512 stream processors.
If previously it was believed that a new generation of AMD hybrid processors will receive Navi GPUs, now everything indicates that it will still be Vega GPUs. If so, then we are talking about Vega 8. And although such a core is not at all impressive, since the current Ryzen 3000 mobile APUs have more productive options, it is worth paying attention to the GPU frequency. It is indicated equal to 1.75 GHz, that is, significantly higher than the current generation.
For example, the Ryzen 5 3500U has the same Vega 8 GPU at a frequency of 1.2 GHz, that is, an increase of almost 50%, and this will entail an impressive performance increase. Thus, even if the new Ryzen 4000 mobile APUs get the same Vega GPU configurations that the Ryzen 3000 have, you can count on a considerable performance increase only due to the increased frequencies.
