AMD's first APU based on Zen architecture and the technical process made in 14 Nm was a big jump compared to previous units. In the case of mobile market, Ryan 5, 2,500 U and Ryan 7 2700 became the most popular systems, which, however, did not receive much approval, mainly due to poorly designed arrangements by notebook manufacturers. Not only that, due to IPPU being more efficient, the APU itself has many capabilities to mix light laptops and convertible devices in the market. Perhaps the second generation will be more refined in this context, because AMD on CES reveals APIs on official basis, based on improved Zen + architecture.
During CES, AMD officially introduces another generation mobile API designed for light laptops. Speech between others is about Ryzen 5 3500U and Ryzen 7 3700U.
After the new APU Picasso, we should not anticipate the revolutionary performance jammer, it is a slightly lower technological process (12 nm instead of 14 nm), along with more progressive changes in architecture. Compared to Raven Ridge, Picasso will be just a small change. In the near future, in laptops we should see four such APIs: Ryan 3 3200 U, Ryan 3 3300 U, Ryan 5 3500 U and Ryan 7 3700 US. Interestingly, the first of them, i.e. Ryan 3 3200 U, has still been made in 14 nm lithography. As you do well on the specifications of Ryan 5 3500 U and Ryan 7 3700 u, you will look at Twin Parameters compared to Ryan 5 3550H and Ryan 7 3750H. In fact, we have the same construction, "U" versions are less active turbo and TDP is lower at 15W. Other parameters are exactly the same. Ryan 5 3500 Unified Vega 8 is operated at 1200 MHz, while the Ryan 7 3700, the Vega 10 clock speeds are 1,400 MHz. Ryan 3 will receive 3,300 U, in turn, IGPU Raiden Vega 6 1200 MHz and Ryan 3 3200 U clock, Vega 3, 1200 MHz clock were also there. The last unit AMD Athlon designed for the mobile market is 300 US – Budget construction with two cores and four threads and IGPU vega 3 are also equipped with this, this time, however, the clock of the lower one 1000 MHz.
The plan to introduce APU Picasso is not the only change in AMD schemes in relation to the mobile market. For many, definitely the more important information will change the manufacturer's approach to driver updates issues. Until recently, mobile APIs have a vague opinion about the lack of support for the Raven Ridge. On the CES Trade Fair, the company officially announced that in the first quarter of 2019, one package will be shared with drivers, which is compatible with all devices operated by AMD systems. Soon, the possibility of updating drivers through the AMD website will eventually be possible for Ryan Mobile. I hope that the significant increase in APUs will also affect the development of equipment equipped with Picasso.
