While AMD is mostly known for its desktop and laptop hardware, a new leak suggests that the company could be working on a smartphone chipset – the AMD Ryzen C7.
The chipset, according to the leak, includes two Gaugin Pro cores running at 3GHz. These are allegedly based on ARM’s Cortex X1 cores. In addition, there are two Gaugin cores that are based on the Cortex A78 cores running at 2.60GHz. Rounding out the cores are 4 ARM Cortex A55 cores at 2.00GHz.
The AMD Ryzen C7 is said to have been built by TSMC using a 5nm process. It also comes with the MediaTek 5G UltraSave Modem which means it supports 5G, and it’s also rumored to support LPDDR5 RAM and a max of 2K resolution at 144Hz refresh rate.
Unfortunately, there are several inconsistencies and misspells in the leaked image which is why we suggest you take this with a pinch of salt. If it’s true, that means we’d have more options in the smartphone chipset space. Competition, after all, benefits consumers.
