AMD announces semi-custom Ryzen Vega SoC

A bit different than an APU

AMD has announced that it has gained a contract from China's Zhongshan Subor. The semiconductor company has published a post about a new semi-custom Zen and Vega SoC.

Compared to what we have seen with APU during the last years, the semi-custom Ryzen Vega SoC is a bit different. For example this SoC comes with graphics/system memory as a single external chip. The new gaming SoC will be part of upcoming gaming PC and console from Chinese brand Zhongshan Subor.

According to AMD, this new SoC will pack an AMD Ryzen CPU with four cores and eight threads, Radeon Vega graphics with 24 CUs and, 8GB of GDDR5 memory. The specifications are rather close to the Ryzen 2400G, however the upcoming SoC packs more CUs.

The first new Subor gaming PCs featuring the semi-custom SoC will be available from later this month in China. The first Subor Z+ PC will cost $730 USD.
