However, according to our sources, at the present moment there are two version of Raven Ridge under development, one with a 12CUs GPU and one with a 16CUs GPU. You can see the main differences in the table below.
|APU||Raven Ridge FP5||Raven Ridge AM4|
|Process Node||14nm FinFET||14nm FinFET|
|Die Size||~ 170 mm2||~ 210 mm2|
AMD will attack the Mobile and Desktop markets with two different kind of products, one aimed to equip the Mobile devices, one aimed to equip Multimedia Desktops . Or even Apple products: as usual (See Polaris 11 and Tonga in the new Macs), AMD could sell to Apple a fully unlocked Raven Ridge APU – 16 CUs GPU – and sell in the other markets a castrated Raven Ridge APU – 12CUs GPU.
We have to say that AMD is studying these two versions of Raven Ridge, but we don't know if both will be commercialized (AMD in the recent past has canceled a lot of products: Nolan and Amur (SkyBridge), Komodo (5 modules CPU), etc).
