Ryzen 7000 APUs may have a 1.1GHz RDNA 2 GPU

We already know the processors Ryzen 7000 series Of AMD they will arrive by the end of the year and will be based on the new one Zen architecture 4which will bring a performance improvement, as well as support for new technologies such as DDR5 And PCI Express 5.0 and the introduction of the socket AM5. At the moment, not much is known about their specs, other than whether they will be made on the 5nm process node of TSMC, but, recently, some details have been leaked thanks to a new AMD SMU driver (System Management Unit)more specifically related to Integrated GPU. Indeed, it appears that the GPU, based on RDNA 2, it may have a frequency of 1.1 GHzalthough it is not specified whether it is the base clock or the Boost clock.

If we want to have fun with speculations, the known Komachi_Ensaka speculated that the RDNA 2 GPU of future Ryzen 7000s could consist of two Workgroup Processors (WGP), each of which contains two CU (each consisting of 64 Stream Processors). Based on that, we can say that the integrated GPU could have 256 SPs running at 1.1GHz, for a computational power equal to 0.5TFLOP FP32. This result is a bit disappointing, especially if we compare it to a Ryzen 5 6600HS, which manages to deliver a maximum of 1.5TFLOP. However, it should be taken into consideration that the low clock speeds extrapolated from the AMD SMU driver could refer to a first engineering sample which, as we all know, has lower frequencies than those of the final product.

Obviously, for the moment we just have to wait patiently a few more months to get further official information from AMD itself. Recently, the Sunnyvale company has released numerous details inherent in the AMD Ryzen 6000 series, which will make notebooks even more powerful and efficient.
