AMD 'Flute': Xbox Scarlett SoC: Zen 2 8C/16T @ 3.2GHz on 7nm

AMD 'Flute' engineering sample turns up, next-gen Xbox SoC takes form

We've already heard a fair amount of rumors and base specs of Sony's next-gen PlayStation 5, and it seems now is the time to learn about the new SoC inside of the next-gen Xbox console codenamed Project Scarlett.


A new SoC has turned up in a UserBenchmark sample as the AMD 'Flute' which is based on the Zen 2 architecture with 8C/16T and a low base clock of 1.6GHz and maximum boost of 3.2GHz. It was always expected to see next-gen consoles see their CPU clocks lower than what the PC versions of the Zen 2 processors pack, to keep that all-important TDP down inside of a small console.

AMD will be providing a custom Navi GPU on the Flute SoC, something that is listed as 'NAVI 10LITE' and has turned up previously in AMD's Linux display driver release. We should expect a cut down Navi GPU to once again keep the TDP low, while it should see 16GB of GDDR6 shared memory, as per previous rumors on Scarlett.
