AMD Reportedly Preparing Next Generation Steam Deck Processor

Looks like the original APU processor for the Steam Deck isn’t powerful enough for future games … so AMD are planning an upgrade the next-generation Steam Deck using a quad-core APU with Zen 4 and RDNA3 architectures.

Taken from TPU … AMD is allegedly preparing an upgraded quad-core APU with Zen 4 and RDNA3 architectures for a next-generation Steam Deck device according to Moore’s Law is Dead. The report claims that the chip is referred to as a “Van Gogh Successor” internally with a die size between 110 mm² and 150 mm² resulting in an increased production cost.

The chip should feature 4 Zen 4 cores and 8 threads offering 25% – 35% higher performance per clock (PPC) with a maximum boost of 4 GHz. The RDNA3 graphics will include 8 Compute Units with significantly higher PPC compared to their RDNA2 counterparts which combined with the updated CPU could see a performance improvement up to 50%. These rumors have not been confirmed with any potential Steam Deck processor far from being announced or released anytime soon.
