The PC market is all set to heat up in 2022, with AMD, Intel and NVIDIA set to launch next-gen products one after the other in quick succession. According to Greymon55, AMD will be launching the Zen 3+ or Rembrandt mobile processors along with the “Zen 3D” Ryzen 5000 CPUs with V-Cache. The former will pair the enhanced Zen 3 core with an RDNA 2 GPU and LPDDR5/DDR5 memory. These SKUs will be fabbed on TSMC’s N6 process and feature increased boost clocks, and a much faster graphics processor compared to Cezanne and Renoir.
AMD is also expected to announce the Navi 24-powered Radeon RX 6500/6400 series for the budget gaming audience, along with the rest of the RDNA 2 mobile GPUs. NVIDIA, on the other hand, is slated to announce the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti along with the RTX 3070 Ti/3080 Ti for mobile gaming laptops. The former will be the first part of the Ampere refresh “Super” lineup, slated to arrive in the first half of 2022. These will retain the same core architecture as the RTX 30 series but bump up the core count and memory bandwidth. We might get faster memory chips as well. Finally, there’s the matter of the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti for mobile. This particular SKU will seemingly feature the GA103.
We’re looking at 58 SMs or 7,428 FP32 (CUDA) cores paired with 16GB of GDDR6 memory across a 256/320-bit bus. The GPU core runs at a clock speed of 1.4GHz, with a likely higher boost clock. On Intel’s side, we’ll likely get the specs and launch details of the Alder Lake-P mobile processors, and possibly the non-L desktop SKUs.
