[TechSpot] Leak shows AMD "Ryzen C7" SoC for smartphones with impressive specs
According to a leak spotted by Twitter user HansDeVriesNL, AMD may be preparing a Ryzen-branded smartphone SoC that, if proven real, could shake up the mobile market much in the same way as desktop and workstation Ryzen processors have done for PCs.
Specifically, the company could be preparing an SoC named "Ryzen C7" that features two Gaugin Pro cores based on ARM's recently announced Cortex X1 cores running at 3GHz paired with two cores based on the Cortex A78 running at 2.6 GHz, and four low-power cores based on the Cortex A55 running at 2 GHz.
Perhaps more interesting is that the chip seems to pack the elusive RDNA-based smartphone graphics solution that AMD and Samsung partnered for in 2019. This solution has been shown to be significantly faster than the Adreno 650 found in top smartphones like the Samsung Galaxy S20.
AMD building ARM processors? I like it! 3.00ghz big ARM cores is nothing to sneeze it. One thing ARM SOCs really suffer with is good graphics. I would be really curious to see what is possible with some radeon APUs inside phones and tablets.
