AMD Ryzen 6000 APUs, codenamed “Rembrandt” are going to use DDR5/LPPDR5 memory for both the notebook and desktop platforms. It’s unclear whether this generation of APUs will continue to leverage the AM4/FP4 platform or migrate to AM5/FP5, but considering the major upgrade in memory, the latter is likely. Furthermore, as DDR5 is switching to dual 32-bit channels per DIMM, this means Rembrandt will utilize up to four-channels (quad-channel) of it.
Rembrandt will also support PCIe 4.0 on both notebook and desktop platforms, along with USB 4.0 ports as well. Rembrandt will be built atop TSMC’s 7nm node with Zen 3+ cores on the CPU side and a Navi based iGPU. This will be the first APU lineup from AMD to include an RDNA based GPU on both desktop and notebook platforms.
