So far, the only Raizen desktop processors using an integrated graphics processor (iGPU) were G-series chips, but that is changing with the introduction of Zen 4-based processors. According to a new report, we expect the Raizen 7000 series processors to use RDNA 2 integrated graphics with a clock speed of 1.1 GHz
AMD plans to launch the first Zen 4 processor-based processors in the second half of 2022. These processors will likely include the Raizen 7000 series desktop chips that use RDNA2 integrated graphics. Now the report says that these chips will have 2 WGP processors or 4 computing units (CU) with a speed of 1.1 GHz.
None of this information has been approved by AMD, but if true, we expect the chip to have 64 processors per CU, for a total of 256 processors. In addition to the report released today, the details of the AMD SMU 13.0.5 driver also mention a frequency of 1.1 GHz. But on the other hand, this feature could be related to the AMD processor engineering prototype, and eventually we see a faster iGPU.
What will be the power of iGPU Advisor 7000 Desktop?
Based on the available specifications, the graphics processor integrated with the Raizen 7000 series chips can provide up to 0.55 teraflops of power. This power is much more than the power of current Vega processors and almost a third of the graphics power of the “Steam Deck” console.
AMD has used this iGPU primarily for system display management. This integrated graphics will probably provide more power in the Raizen 7000 series laptop chips with 16 computing units.
As we said, the Raizen 7000 series processors will be released later this year and will be based on 5nm lithography. These chips are supposed to use the new LGA1718 / AM5 socket and are compatible with PCIe 5.0 and DDR5.
