【AMD第七代APU产品线和规格曝光】AMD 7th Generation APU Lineup And Specifications Leaked ? Flagship SKU Features 4 x86 Excavator Based Cores and 8 GCN 3.0 CUs
AMD is getting ready to unveil its 7th Generation APU lineup at Computex in a few weeks, but since our readers can’t wait that long, we thought we would post the specifications of AMD’s upcoming lineup of AM4 APUs anyways. The brand new processors will be landing in June along with the AM4 motherboards and will be the first to feature Excavator on the mainstream desktop platform. They will offer significant performance increases over the previous iterations of Kaveri and Carrizo (Mobility).
AMD’s 7th Generation APU specifications leaked ? 50% faster than Kaveri【第七代APU规格曝光-比Kaveri快50%】
All six SKUs fall into the full power (65W) or low power (35W) variants. All SKUs utilize the AM4 socket and support DDR4-2400 memory. It is worth noting that the boards supporting the AM4 socket will be landing next month in June. AMD will be revealing the platform at Computex in a few days and we expect to see the entire lineup of AMD’s 7th Generation APUs present there as well.Raven Ridge will be succeeding Bristol Ridge and will be based on the 14nm process with Zen cores.
【这次发布的六款APU均为65W或者35W低功耗版本。全部为AM4接口并支持DDR4-2400内存。支持AM4接口的主板也会在六月发布。几天后AMD会揭晓在Computex发布的关于新平台的全部内容，同时我们应该能看到第七代APU的完整阵容ppt。Bristol Ridge的下代是Raven Ridge，基于14nm制程和Zen架构。】
The flagship SKUs will have a total of 12 compute cores present on the package. Out of these, 4 will belong to the Compute side while the remaining 8 will form the Graphics side. The top end SKU will have 4 x86 Excavator based cores clocked at 3.7 Ghz (Turbo up to 4.2 Ghz) with 2 MB L2 Cache. This will be complimented by 8 GCN 3.0 CUs for a total of 512 Streaming Processors. The low power (35W) variant will be clocked at 2.9 Ghz (boost up to 3.8 Ghz).【旗舰一共有12个计算核心。4个为CPU核心，剩下的8个为集显的8个CU。顶级为挖掘机四核@3.7Ghz（加速到4.2Ghz），2M L2缓存，同时还有8个GCN 3.0计算单元，共512个流处理器。低功耗版频率为2.9G（加速3.8G）】
The performance tier SKUs in the lineup will have a total of 10 compute cores ? divided into 4 for compute and 6 for graphics respectively. The x86 Excavator based cores will be clocked at 3.5 Ghz (Boost up to 3.8 Ghz) with 2 MB of L2 cache. The 6 graphics CUs house 384 GCN 3.0 cores. Clock rate of the GPU side of things is not known to us at the moment. The low power variant (35W) will be clocked at 2.8 Ghz (Boost up to 3.5 Ghz).【性能级产品一共有10个计算核心 – 4个为CPU核心,6个为集显CU。标准版核心频率为3.5G（加速3.8G），2ML2。集显共6个CU，384个GCN 3.0核心。集显频率目前未知。低功耗版核心频率2.8G（加速3.5G）】
The budget SKUs in the lineup will have a total of 6 Compute Cores. The two x86 Excavator based cores will be clocked at 3.5 Ghz (Boost up to 3.8 Ghz) and will share 1 MB of L2 cache. The graphics side of things will house 4 CUs with 256 GCN 3.0 stream processors. The low power variant (35 W) will be clocked at 3.0 Ghz (boost up to 3.4 Ghz).【低端一共6个计算核心，2个3.5G（加速3.8G）的CPU核心，共享1M L2。集显共4个CU，256个GCN 3.0流处理器。低功耗版频率为3.0G（加速3.4G）
AMD’s new Excavator based APUs offer 50% more performance than their predecssor.【新APU将会带来50%以上的性能提升】
AMD’s 7th Generation APUs on paper appear to be very Carrizo-like in their specifications apart from the fact that they are full fledged desktop chips. The amount of GCN cores featured maxes out at 512.As mentioned above the processor architecture will be Excavator while the GPU architecture should be a revised iteration of GCN (dubbed GCN 3.0). Bristol Ridge APUs are going to have one very interesting feature: support for DDR4 memory, specifically dual channel DDR4 2400 Mhz. You might recall how APUs are very dependent on memory, so this is going to be a very nice feature for AMD’s shiny new APUs.
【虽然他们是完整的桌面版，第七代APU在规格上依然很像Carrizo。GCN核心最大为512个。像上面说的那样，CPU架构将会是挖掘机架构，同时GPU架构将会是GCN的改进版（GCN3.0）。Bristol Ridge APU的一个非常有趣的特色是：规格上支持DDR4 2400双通道内存。你肯定记得APU对于内存带宽的依赖性，所以这对于新APU将会是很好的新特性。】
AMD’s next generation Bristol Ridge’s Excavator cores will have high clock rates which means that performance gains will be architectural in nature as well as the usual clock advantage. Clock for clock comparison with Kaveri should be very interesting. Gaming performance increase is stated to be around 20% of Carrizo Mobility and over 50% of Kaveri! The APU will have full HSA support and OpenCL 2.0. It will also have the AZ/I2S Audio Co-processor on board for sound processing (duh).The chipset is ofcourse Promontory. Its worth mentioning that Summit Ridge is at the 14nm node while as Bristol Ridge is still at 28nm. So all that while remaining on the old and trusty 28nm process is quite a feat. Full specifications of the AMD’s 7th Generation ‘Bristol Ridge’ platform:
【Bristol Ridge的频率很高，这意味着不仅有架构带来自然的性能提升，而且还有频率提高带来的性能提升。与Kaveri的同主频比较将会很有趣。游戏性能与Carrizo移动版相比提升20%，与Kaveri相比提升超过50%。而且新APU完整支持HSA和OpenCL 2.0。Bristol Ridge也将板载AZ/I2S音频协处理器来处理音频（
呵呵）。值得一提的是Summit Rdige已经是14nm制程而Bristol Ridge仍是28nm。】
