Earlier this month, an engineering sample of the AMD Picasso hybrid processor, made by Socket AM4, was identified on the web. As you know, the new APU line will combine the cores of the Zen + processor with the Radeon Vega graphics core, and chip production will be deployed at GlobalFoundries facilities using 12 nm technology standards.
Chiphell Chinese enthusiast got a pre-roll sample of the Ryzen 3 3200G processor and was not afraid to "scalp" the new product. Judging from the photos presented, under the cover of the APU was the thermal grease, already familiar from the models Ryzen 3 2200G and Ryzen 5 2400G.
Regarding the performance of desktop chips, the AMD Picasso, we can expect a small increase in the frequency of x86 cores and the integrated GPU, as well as improvements in the cache memory architecture and the RAM controller.

If we draw analogies with the quad-core processors Ryzen 3 1300X and Ryzen 3 2300X, the transition to 12 nm processing technology allowed us to increase the clock frequency by 300 MHz in turbo mode, which, along with other changes, resulted in an increase of the order of 10-20% depending on applications. Probably, a similar picture will be observed in the comparison between Ryzen 3 2200G APU and Ryzen 3 3200G.
The official announcement of the desktop versions of AMD Picasso, according to available information, will be held next month. As representatives of Micro-Star International said in May the UEFI firmware for the 300th and 400th series motherboards will be released with the support of a new generation of hybrid chips.
