It looks as though one of the first engineering samples of AMD's next-gen Raven Ridge APUs has leaked onto the SiSoftware Database, giving us some details on the processor - and as always this is a hot and steamy rumor, and nothing else.

AMD has launched its new Ryzen CPU family with multiple SKUs in the Ryzen 7 and Ryzen 5 lines, but we haven't seen Ryzen 3 yet. Later this year AMD will launch Raven Ridge, a new APU using Zen CPU cores, but it'll also rock Vega NCUs as well. The engineering sample in question was a 4C/8T part at 3GHz base clock and 3.3GHz turbo clock, with 704 Vega NCUs at 800MHz.

The Raven Ridge engineering sample featured 2MB of L2 cache and 4MB of L3 cache, while the new chip sported 11 compute units - so if we blend in 64 stream processors per CU, we should see 704 stream processors in total on the Vega NCU. The chip was pushing 572.68 Mpix/s, too.

AMD has planned this for a while, with Raven Ridge to be a mainstream APU, while Pinnacle Ridge will be the performance CPU that will succeed the current-gen Ryzen processors.
