New information about the AMD “Rembrandt” (Ryzen 6000) APUs suggests that this architecture will support DDR5-5200 memory, and it will be powered by the Zen3 core architecture using the 6nm process node.
Just to remind you, “Rembrandt” is the codename for the upcoming AMD Ryzen 6000 series APUs, the successor to the “Cezanne” (Ryzen 5000) APUs. These APUs are expected to be available starting in 2022.
The new information about “Rembrandt” comes from an update from @patrickschur, claiming that “Rembrandt” would support DDR5-4800 and LPDDR5-6400 memory, USB 4.0, and PCIe 4.0. According to his latest tweet, the Ryzen 6000 APUs will come with 20x PCIe lanes, 2x USB 4.0 ports (40Gbps) and support DDR5-5200 memory.

Considering the addition of DDR5 memory support, AMD will probably introduce a new socket with “Rembrandt”. These APUs should come with a TDP similar to the current “Renoir” APUs (45-65W) and will probably be divided into the Ryzen 6000H series (mobile) and the Ryzen 6000G (desktop) series.
Additionally, @MebiuW also revealed the “Rembrandt” architecture in an AMD roadmap. Besides confirming details from other sources, it is also suggested that “Rembrandt” will feature Navi 2 integrated graphics and it will be based on the 6nm process node, which might seem odd.
The use of 6nm on “Rembrandt” doesn’t clearly contradict what has been leaked until now, but it sure raises some questions. Will the other Ryzen 6000 chips (Dragon Crest and Raphael) also feature Zen3 cores based on the 6nm process node, or will they be using Zen4 cores based on the 5nm process node? All the Ryzen 6000 series was expected to be based on 5nm, but that might not be the case as per @MebiuW’s AMD roadmap.
KitGuru says: Do you think AMD “Rembrandt” APUs will be based on the 6nm process node? What about the rest of the Ryzen 6000 series?
