AMD President and CEO Lisa Su posted a tweet with an image of a chip that appears to be the upcoming 6nm Ryzen 6000 Series mobile processor (Rembrandt). Today AMD is due to officially unveil the processor at the CES 2022 technology exhibition.

Lisa Su will share details about upcoming processors at the event.

Earlier, leaks with the specifications of Rembrandt chips have already appeared on the network. It is assumed that they will have up to eight Zen 3 cores and 16 MB of third-level cache memory. Processors will be produced according to the norms of the 6-nm TSMC process technology.

It is also expected that AMD will abandon the use of the outdated Vega graphics architecture in favor of modern RDNA 2. Probably, the new integrated graphics chip will include up to 768 stream processors, which is 50% more than the integrated GPU generation Vega.
