Alleged Next-Gen AMD Renoir APU Spied With A Big Boost In GPU Clockspeed
This entry was posted on December 2, 2019.
Note that AMD does not actually use the term "APU" anymore—it prefers the longer-winded descriptor of "Ryzen Processors with Radeon Vega Graphics" when describing chips like the Ryzen 3 3200G and its other current-generation APUs.
Call them whatever you like, the point is, these sort of all-in-one slices of silicon house both the CPU and GPU. As it pertains to Renoir, Twitter user APISAK posted a screenshot of what looks to be a SiSoft SANDRA database entry, which points to an unannounced Renoir chip. Have a look...

There are a couple of things that stand out in the screenshot above. Assuming the listed specs are real (and of course we don't know if they are), this particular Renoir part sports 8 compute units and 512 stream processors.
The same is true of AMD's current-generation Ryzen 3 3200G, so we're probably looking at a Ryzen 3 4200G with Vega 8 graphics on board. We can't see any details about the CPU portion, but if this is indeed a Ryzen 3 4200G chip, it will probably retain the same 4-core/4-thread arrangement as the Ryzen 3 3200G.
