Despite being the “dead-end powder” of AMD graphics, AMD processors have not been able to impress Apple. Intel has been the exclusive CPU provider for Apple PC products since it exited IBM PowerPC Eco in mid-2005. However, as Ryzen is increasingly recognized, Apple also seems to want to change its taste.
It was found that in macOS 10.15.4 Beta 1, there were code names related to AMD processors, such as “Picasso”, “Renoir” (Renoir), Van Gogh (Van Gogh) and so on, i.e. corresponding to the Ryzen 3000 and The Ryzen 4000, respectively.
“Van Gogh” is the first time to see, before the rumored Ryzen 5000 APU code “Seshan”, Ryzen 6000 APU code “Rembrandt”, Ryzen 4000 CPU (not integrated GPU) is the code name “Vermil”. Can’t be hard, Van Gogh is updated to the Navi GPU’s Ryzen 4000 APU?
Throughout Apple’s PC product line, APU-grade products are likely to be used in products such as MacBook Air and Mac mini.
