VideoCardz claims to have posted a retail sample of the chip and saying it shouldn’t be long until AMD’s Ryzen 4000-series (codename Renoir) desktop APUs hit the market. Much like AMD’s other processors, Renoir is expected to show a move to TSMC’s 7nm FinFET process node. The new APUs should retain the Vega microarchitecture on the graphics end, but also leverage AMD’s most recent Zen 2 microarchitecture. We haven’t heard about PCIe 4.0 support yet. Renoir is slated to dwell on the AM4 CPU socket, with the firmware update required on motherboard.

we could see the Ryzen 7 4700G with a 3.6 GHz base clock and 4.45 GHz boost clock. It’s probable that the octa-core APU might end up with 4MB of L2 and 8MB of L3 cache. The Ryzen 7 4700G is rumored to come with eight Vega Compute Units (CUs), which would amount to a total of 512 Stream Processors (SPs). AMD has been offering its APUs at a 65W TDP (thermal design power) which is not expected to change now.
