It has been a few months since Twitter account @MebiuW published a photo containing details about Warhol, which is expected to succeed the upcoming Vermeer generation of AMD desktop processors. In May, @MebiuW revealed that Warhol would be a generation of Zen 3 and 7 nm chips that support PCIe 4.0.
The image appeared to be part of a wider roadmap, and now @MebiuW has published another part of it. This time, a snippet containing Van Gogh and Cezanne has been shown, along with hints of several other codenames. Videocardz has compiled the two images and annotated them, which offers a better look at AMD's 2020-2022 roadmap.
Based on the compiled image by Videocardz, it seems that AMD will switch to Zen 3 for Cezanne, but that means that Ryzen 5000 laptop APUs will be 7 nm chips. The image also lists Cezanne as offering LPDDR4X and DDR4 support. AMD will continue with Vega GPUs for Cezanne too, and it will not be until Rembrandt that the company moves onto integrating Navi 2 GPUs on its laptop APUs. The dotted lines on the roadmap seem to denote that Cezanne and Rembrandt will arrive in early 2021 and 2022, respectively.
Raphael also appears to integrate Navi GPUs, but the different coloured box suggests that this may be Navi 3 instead of Navi 2. However, this will not succeed Warhol until mid-2022, which will not be arriving until mid-2021 itself.
Finally, the roadmap shows a codename called Van Gogh, which represents processors based on Zen 2 with Navi 2 GPUs and support for LPDDR5/LPDDR4X RAM. Van Gogh also supports "CVML", which Videocardz opines "probably means" 'Computer Vision and Machine Learning'. Van Gogh has no predecessor, so it would appear to be a new product for AMD. @MebiuW added that Dragon Crest would succeed Van Gogh, which the roadmap suggests will arrive in early 2022 like Rembrandt.
