I see "2018 Raven Ridge" APU on AMD "25 x 20 Energy Efficiency Initiative" page. On the graph and in footnotes. Where is it, what is it, and why AMD is completely silent about it? Even Google is silent. Meanwhile last month of the 2018 is in a couple of days.
As the footnotes indicate, "Raven Ridge is a codename for AMD architecture, and is not a product name."
Raven Ridge refers to AMD's family of 2018 APU products for desktop and mobile. Products so far released include:
Athlon PRO 200GE
Ryzen 3 2200G with Radeon Vega
Ryzen 3 2200G PRO with Radeon Vega
Ryzen 3 2200GE with Radeon Vega
Ryzen 3 2200GE PRO with Radeon Vega
Ryzen 5 2400G with Radeon Vega
Ryzen 5 2400G PRO with Radeon Vega
Ryzen 5 2400GE with Radeon Vega
Ryzen 5 2400GE PRO with Radeon Vega
Ryzen 3 Mobile 2200U with Radeon Vega
Ryzen 3 Mobile 2300U with Radeon Vega
Ryzen 3 Mobile 2300U PRO with Radeon Vega
Ryzen 5 Mobile 2500U with Radeon Vega
Ryzen 5 Mobile 2500U PRO with Radeon Vega
Ryzen 7 Mobile 2700U with Radeon Vega
Ryzen 7 Mobile 2700U PRO with Radeon Vega
Im not sure if you read properly.
here is the page from AMD official site im talking about:
check the picture and the footnotes, please.
"2018 Raven Ridge" is the name used by AMD. yes, with year number. And it is not the same as "Raven Ridge (2017)"-also a name by AMD, but much more energy efficient.
Both are different system/platform with AMD APU. Not a codename.
Also, some system with it called a "forthcoming solution". in August 2018. Forthcoming.
It seems like media and users just forgot about it. All of them. But this information is in AMD site, AMD youtube and on some well known places like Anandtech, here is the link with the some predictions:
final quote from there:
"We're waiting on AMD to release detailed numbers for its Raven Ridge 2018 system. When we requested them, AMD stated that they didn't have anything extra to announce beyond the graph at the top, but given that the values were listed as Raven Ridge 2018, we expect the data to come by the end of the year"
