The company will gamble on a completely different project. Presentation of the Matisse processors, also known as Ryzen 3000, was received very enthusiastically, but at the same time the network seemed to have many questions about the new chip offer. One is APU's that AMD intends to introduce after the premiere of standard CPUs. It appears that these products will be noticeably different from the usual Ryzens, who confirmed the red numbers in an interview with the editors of Anandtech.
AMD unveiled at CES 2019 a project of Matisse desktop layouts, in which a modular construction was planned, especially the so-called chiplety. The chip shown had two such systems – the first, larger, with a set of interfaces and the second, made in 7 nm technology, with eight Zen 2 cores on board. Another place for the next chiplet remained and AMD confirmed that it will certainly be filled. It is only that we will not find any version of SoC in which the layout will appear in free space.
Ian Cutress of AnandTech confirmed in an interview with AMD that the company does not intend to use APU with the help of chiplets. The system will be built in a completely different way, although it will also be based on the Zen 2 architecture. Moreover, the chip would be very similar to the mobile version, which with knowledge of red will be more important than the desktop version. For this reason, it is expected that the APU for desktops will come onto the market much later than the usual Ryzen 3000 processors.
According to Cutress sources, AMD will in no way change the TDP of Matisse chips in relation to the current generation units. So on the market we see both E-variants with a TDP of 35 W and 105 watt flagships to replace Ryzena 7 2700X (here you will check the price). This approach ensures that all chips are fully compatible with the currently available motherboards with the AM4 connection. Of course you should probably update their bios, but this should not be a big problem.
