AMD's upcoming Ryzen 2 processors will be using the company's Zen+ architecture and made on GlobalFroundries' 12LP node, but this new APU is something very interesting. The new "Fenghuang" APU will be powered by something called "15FF" graphics, which is said to rock 28 Radeon compute units (1792 shader processors) and 2GB of unknown-type VRAM.

The APU is clocked at what looks to be a misidentified 555MHz, 16kB of L2 cache, and 32-bit path to memory. This new APU should rock GPU horsepower that is much faster than Vega 8 and Vega 10 IGPs, but we don't know how much power the APU will need yet.

More details on when, or if this new APU is in the making.
