AMD’s upcoming Zen 2 APUs may be paired with Vega graphics and not the latest Navi GPU silicon as first thought. AMD Renoir, which is the working codename for these upcoming APUs, has been spotted in Linux driver code, with all signs currently pointing to a GCN-based graphics solution. Renoir APUs will likely launch in the first few months of 2020, following the regular cadence the company has stuck to since 2017. If the latest driver support for AMDGPU and the RadeonSI OpenGL drivers (spotted by Phoronix) are to be taken on face-value, it would seem AMD will be pairing its latest 7nm Zen 2 CPU architecture with AMD Vega graphics. That may come as a surprise to many considering the RDNA architecture, introduced with AMD Navi in the RX 5700-series, is intended to be super scalable – with even mobile GPUs from Samsung in line for a little RDNA action. This new architecture is targeted directly towards gamers, however, with Vega expected to continue in the compute space.
