AMD Rembrandt allegedly in production: Ryzen 6000 with Zen 3+ cores and RDNA 2 iGPU could do a "Tiger Lake" on Cezanne
According to Greymon55, who has shared plenty of information pertaining to both Nvidia and AMD in the past, it seems Team Red hasn’t forgotten its legions of supporters in the semiconductor space. While a lot of CPU-related news lately has been about Intel’s upcoming Alder Lake chips, things have been relatively quieter about Zen, RDNA, Navi, Ryzen and the like. AMD fans will certainly be excited to hear that Rembrandt, which is the codename for Ryzen 6000, is allegedly already in mass production. On top of that titillating tidbit, the same source claims “six new products” will be churned out by AMD in the first half of 2022.
If that hasn’t got AMD loyalists feeling giddy, then the supposed makeup of Ryzen 6000 certainly will. Numerous roadmaps and leaked snippets have appropriately painted a majestic portrait of Rembrandt, and the APU series is already looking dangerous for its future Intel and Apple Silicon competitors. Not only will the APUs wield Zen 3+ or Zen 3D microarchitecture in their processing cores, but they will also be able to call on RDNA 2 architecture for graphics duties. Along with expected PCIe4, LPDDR5, and DDR5 support all on a 6 nm manufacturing process, there’s no wonder tech enthusiasts are looking forward to seeing what performances Ryzen 6000 parts will produce.
Interestingly, iGPU performance for Rembrandt is touched upon in one of the responses to Greymon55’s comments, by another prolific tech commenter, davidbepo. The latter source stated “remember when I said TGL iGP was gonna be the best, well this will too, but the margin is a lot bigger”. Intel’s Tiger Lake (11th Gen mobile) chips delivered much-improved iGPU performances over their predecessor Ice Lake counterparts thanks to the presence of Xe “Gen12” architecture. If Rembrandt can pull off similar Tiger Lake-like performance improvements over Cezanne, then along with their formidable Zen 3+ cores on offer the Ryzen 6000 APUs will be mouth-watering prospects.
