3DMark and AOTS Benchmarks Reveal 8 Core Intel Coffee Lake-S, Intel Ice Lake-U With UHD Graphics, AMD Ryzen 7 2700H and AMD Vega 20/Vega 12 GPUs
This post is a compilation of various leaks of upcoming hardware that include Intel processors, AMD processors and AMD based graphics cards. The CPUs/GPUs were spotted in various listings over at 3DMark and AOTS benchmark databases so let's give you a quick roundup.
AMD Ryzen 7 2700H and AMD Vega 20 Graphics Spotted in AOTS DX12 Benchmark Database
Starting off with AMD hardware, we have the AMD Ryzen H series, mobile processors. The H series processors will be high-performance mobility platform aimed and will include two SKUs, the Ryzen 7 2800H and the Ryzen 5 2600H. Both chips will feature a 35W TDP and feature 4 cores, 8 threads along with Radeon RX Vega graphics. Specifications of both parts are listed below:
AMD Ryzen 7 2800H Processor
The AMD Ryzen 7 2800H processor will feature four cores and eight threads. The chip will come with a base clock of 3.4 GHz (Turbo clock remains unknown) and feature a TDP of 35W. The GPU would include a Radeon RX Vega 11 integrated graphics processor which will have 704 SPs so we will have a decent graphics chip on these processors. Basically, a high-performance APU designed for laptops.
Based on the performance displayed in AOTS benchmark, we are looking at around Ryzen 3 2200G caliber performance which is a 65W desktop part with better clocks and no limitations in terms of power or temperature when compared to a mobility part. The graphics chip is slightly better on the Ryzen 7 2800H so we will be looking at better gaming performance on the mobility part.
AMD Ryzen 5 2600H Processor
The AMD Ryzen 5 2600G processor will feature four cores and eight threads. The chip will come with a base clock of 3.3 GHz and 3.6 GHz boost clocks while featuring a TDP of 35W. The GPU would include a Radeon RX Vega integrated graphics processor but we don't have the exact info for the GPU specifications of this part. It is stated in previous reports that this chip will actually be using the Radeon RX Vega 8 graphics which means we are looking at 512 SPs.
According to the 3DMark benchmarks gathered by Videocardz, we can tell that the Ryzen 5 2600H and Ryzen 7 2800H will be strong mobility chips from AMD. The Ryzen 5 2600H is reported slightly ahead of the Ryzen 7 2800H but we can also see the boost clock not being reported correctly on the Ryzen 7 2800H which may be the reason of the lower physics performance. Overall, the GPU score is pretty much the same with 2800H taking a slight gain due to its better Vega 11 graphics core.

AMD Radeon Vega 20 and Vega 12 GPUs Show Up
Also, two very surprising Vega entries, the Vega 20 and Vega 12 GPUs have shown up in AOTS database. These two chips have been confirmed for a while and we even got to see a live demo of the Vega 20 graphics card at Computex 2018. The AMD Vega 20 GPU goes by the device id "66A0:00" and is the flagship AMD Radeon Instinct part for the second half of 2018 and will feature twice the density, twice the power efficiency, and 35% better performance compared to the 14nm FinFET based Vega 10 GPU in DLL and AI workloads.
It's purpose-built for the HPC market like NVIDIA's Tesla V100 which was tailored for the HPC market. The card would pack 32 GB of HBM2 VRAM and 4096 stream processors in a die size much smaller than the current Vega 10 GPU. The database listing shows that the card is indeed being tested but AOTS seems to be an unusual performance metric for a card being built for HPC market.
Maybe AMD's confirmation of bringing 7nm to gamers might have meant that 7nm Vega would be coming to gamers but then again, the numbers in the benchmarks aren't that great for a high-end 7nm GPU when comparing it to current generation Radeon RX cards.
The other part that has shown up is the Vega 12 GPU and don't let the name fool you, this isn't a Vega part with 12 CUs, the Vega 12 GPU "69A0:00" naming is akin to Vega 10 and Vega 20 which are code-names for the GPU themselves, not the specific SKU like Vega 64, Vega 56, Vega 11, Vega 8, etc. This chip is designed to serve the mobile market as a discrete solution and no details are known yet but we can see that it is being tested internally by AMD and one has shown up in the AOTS benchmark.
Intel's 8 Core Coffee Lake-S 3.00 GHz ES and Ice Lake-U Chips With UHD Graphics Show Up Too
On Intel side, we have another Coffee Lake-S 8 core listing. The Intel 8 core mainstream chip will be a very popular upcoming part for the company, offering the highest core count to the mainstream user base. Previous listings have shown clock speeds of up to 2.60 GHz and back then, I stated that the clocks will continue to go up since we are looking at early samples.
We are now looking at Coffee Lake-S 8 core chips with base clocks up to 3.00 GHz which is fast approaching the 3.70 GHz base clock of Intel's Core i7-8700K. The frequency still isn't finalized so we can see the much higher base and boost clocks in the final variant which ships sometime in Q3 '18. The 8 core 16 thread part will be showing up in both Xeon and Core mainstream families. We are also expecting two variants for each line, an 80W and a 95W part in K and non-K flavors for the consumer family.
Intel Ice Lake-U Processors Show Up in Sisoftware and 3DMark
Moving on, we have various Intel Ice Lake-U listings. These sub 15W parts will be the first chips in the Ice Lake family, featuring 10nm processor. The same part with 4 cores and 8 threads were tested in 3DMark performance mode with 48 EUs (384 SPs) while an 8 EU part with 64 SPs (512 cores) was also spotted. The Ice Lake-U chips are still in a very early stage of development and will be replacing the 10nm Cannonlake-U parts which we covered the first die shots of a few days ago.

We can't compare the performance of the Ice Lake-U parts with other processors or iGPUs since we don't have exact specifications at hand but we will definitely provide more comparisons and bench marks when we are able to recieve them.
