Some new information has emerged about AMD's upcoming Rembrandt line of processors. It is tipped to ship with Zen3+ cores, an RDNA2 GPU with up to 12 compute units (CUs), support for LPDDR5 RAM, and more.

Over the past few weeks, we had a good look at AMD's roadmap for desktop and notebook processors. Rembrandt seems to be on track for a late 2021/2022 release on the laptop side of things. Multiple reports have told us that it will ditch the ageing Vega GPU. Twitter leaker ExecutableFix suggests that Rembrandt could ship with as many as 12 CUs (768 shaders) on an RDNA2 GPU.

It'll be interesting to see how RDNA2 fares in an iGPU environment. Van Gogh should give us a rough idea, given that it will also employ an RDNA2 GPU alongside a Zen2 core, although it is unlikely to get a 12CU GPU. Even though Warhol seems to have been axed outright, there is enough evidence to suggest that Rembrandt will be based on the 6nm Zen3+ process. 5nm is still quite some time away, and it would make little sense for AMD to continue on the 7nm path for Rembrandt.

Other Rembrandt features include support for LPDDR5 RAM and PCIe 4. AMD will introduce its new AM5/GP7 socket alongside Rembrandt after years of sticking with AM4/FP6. It is also expected to ship with a dedicated machine learning component called CVML.
