AMD "Gonzalo" APU Could Feature 8 Zen Cores and Navi Graphics

Twitter user APISAK is back with another rumor, and this time, it seems to be about a potential upcoming AMD APU. As usual, it's not clear where the information is coming from, but the Twitter user apparently found a device with model name "AMD 2G16002CE8JA2_32/10/10_13E9." APISAK, KOMACHI_ENSAKA, and ComputerBase.de all took a shot at trying to decode that name using AMD's previous naming schemes, and , and they believe it represents a 8 core APU with a 1.6Ghz base clockspeed, a 3.6Ghz boost speed, a Zen + or Zen 2 architecture, and a "Navi 10 Lite" GPU.

As usual, this analysis needs to be taken with a giant heaping of salt, but it does coincide with previous rumors suggesting that a Navi APU would be at the heart of the next-gen Playstation. ComputerBase.de notes that new console generations from Microsoft and Sony aren't expected to come out until at least 2021. Thanks to cageymaru for the tip.
