There is no doubt that the AMD 7nm process and Zen 2 architecture’s Renoir APU are coming to the desktop, and the exposure suggests it will be the first to do 8 core, hitting the high end of the market. With the b550 motherboard being released, boardvendors have also leaked more information about the renoir APU desktop version, with a hint of regret.
First of all, Tseja gave a roadmap, confirming that after the X570, B550, the 500 series chipset will also have an entry-level A520, the same can support PCIe 4.0, but must be paired with the Ryzen 3000 CPU to turn on.
It also shows that Renoir’s desktop version will be named the Ryzen 4000G series, but it only supports PCIe 3.0, even with the 500 series motherboard will not have PCIe 4.0.
Before confirming that Renoir Mobile does not have PCIe 4.0, we also had a hope that the mobile platform did not have much demand for this, deliberately blocked it, it now appears that although it is also a Zen 2 architecture, but there is no design pcIe 4.0, or did not want to open.
In terms of platform compatibility, Tsinga said the A520 can also support the future of the four generations of Ryzen, codenameVerer (this is also the first time in the official roadmap to see this code), B450, X470 although not corresponding to the four generations of Ryzen, but rest assured that AMD has confirmed that support is no problem.
Asrock’s B550 motherboard specification synoms, also confirmed that Renoir’s desktop version only supports PCIe 3.0, but also gives a detailed memory configuration, looks exactly the same as the Ryzen 3000 CPU, without any shrinkage, dual channels can be stable on 3200MHz.
