ZEN 2 LIST LEAKED

We have found a graphic with the new part numbers, core layout. clocks, TDW and MSRP. Now that AMD Zen 2 is close at hand consumers can now look at the new lineup.

The new lineup will be attractive as it now provides consumers with more cores which will improve overall performance.

Along with the new 7nm process node, AMD is taken a modular approach, still utilising some 14nm silicon in the design to keep costs down and yields high.

The R9 processors will now be the new flagship. This will appeal to the wealthier enthusiast segment of the market.

AMD NAVI

The replacement for the R5 2400G doubles the cores and adds more Navi CU units which will make it a powerful stand alone device. Navi continues to use GCN which limits the maximum shaders to 4096. A 56 CU Vega 10 would have 3,584 GPU cores. A 60 CU Navi 20 would be 3,840 cores. 

Navi cards will likely be 256-bit and likely will surface using GDDR6. The card likely will use a pair of 8-pin PCI Express power cables. TDP will likely be around 250W to complete with the RTX 2070.

AMD is going to have to do something to replace GCN as it is now stretched to the limit looking forward.
