AMD APU Graphics to Retain RDNA3+ Architecture Through 2027

Published by Hilbert Hagedoorn 5

teaser
AMD is set to maintain the RDNA3+ architecture for its APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) graphics until at least 2027. This decision is attributed to AMD's partnership with Samsung on the Exynos project, which has limited the company's ability to make significant architectural updates to its APU graphics. Consequently, AMD will extend the use of the RDNA3+ architecture, initially expected to debut in the forthcoming AMD Zen 5 "Strix Point" APUs, which are anticipated to launch in mid-2024. The RDNA 3+ graphics architecture, also referred to as GFX115X or RDNA 3.5 in technical circles, has been under development for some time and has previously been identified in Linux patches. This architecture is essentially an optimization of the existing RDNA 3 series, currently employed in Radeon RX 7000 GPUs and Ryzen 7040/8040 APUs.
