AMD Ryzen+Vega CPUs unboxed in China

Is it still OK to call this an APU?



Read more about AMD's Ryzen+Vega CPUs.

Nice. My current HTPC is using an A10-6800k which does the media job plenty well, but fails pretty hard with games. When it does bite the dust it's good to know there will be a decent AMD replacement on the market that'll actually allow me to play some basic games on the big screen.

Imagine if they could actually make a performance one of these, with a more powerful GPU. That could potentially be a solution for the current GPU insanity.

Something like that wouldn't work well on DDR4, not enough bandwidth. Such a chip would need integrated HBM2 or something, which would be a little too big and expensive sadly.

Anything much bigger will always have problems because dedicated GPUs exist and because of chip size restraints (increased cost).

Well hopefully it will be reasonably decent at 1080p Might clock well, due to lower GCN units etc. I remember the old APUs responded well GPU wise to increase in memory speeds too

These are APUs right? Seems like lots of people think it's a full Ryzen chip with an added on GPU?
