A new report points to an entry from the USB implementors forum, which shows an unreleased AMD Bristol Ridge SoC.

Bristol Ridge itself is not news, as the report at Computer Base observes (translation):

"A leaked roadmap had previously noted that Bristol Ridge is in the coming year soldered on motherboards for notebooks and desktop computers in special BGA package FP4."

But there is something different about this chip as the report point out the model name FX-9830P pictured in the screen grab is consistent with the naming scheme for notebook parts, with the highest current model being FX-8800P (Carrizo), a 35W 4-thread Excavator part with 512 stream processors from the R7 GPU core.

No details are available other than information from a leaked roadmap (above), which points to Bristol Ridge as an FP4 BGA part for mobile, with a desktop variant for socket FM3 that would replace Kaveri/Godavari (and possibly still an Excavator part). New cores are coming in 2016, and we'll have to wait and see for additional details (or until more information inevitably leaks out).

Update, 11/06/15: WCCFtech expounds on the leak:

“Bristol Ridge isn’t just limited to mobility platforms but will also be featured on AM4 desktop platform as Bristol Ridge will be the APU generation available on desktops in 2016 while Zen would be integrated on the performance focused FX processors.”

WCCFtech’s report also included a link to this SiSoftware database entry for an engineering sample of a dual-core Stoney Ridge processor, a low-power mobile part with a 2.7 GHz clock speed. Stoney Ridge will reportedly succeed Carrizo-L for low-power platforms.

The report also provided this chart to reference the new products:

It's "SKU" not "skew".

November 5, 2015 | 10:56 PM - Posted by Anonymous (not verified)

From Wikipedia:

In the field of inventory management, a stock keeping unit or SKU (/ˌɛsˌkeɪˈjuː/ or /ˈskuː/ SKOO or /ˈskjuː/) is a distinct type of item for sale,[1] such as a product or service, and all attributes associated with the item type that distinguish it from other item types. For a product, these attributes could include, but are not limited to, manufacturer, description, material, size, color, packaging, and warranty terms. When a business takes an inventory, it counts the quantity it has of each SKU.

SKU can also refer to a unique identifier or code that refers to the particular stock keeping unit. These codes are not regulated nor standardized. When a company receives items from a vendor, it has a choice of maintaining the vendor's SKU or creating its own. Other entity tracking methods, with varying regulations, are the Universal Product Code (UPC), International Article Number (EAN), Global Trade Item Number (GTIN), and Australian Product Number (APN).

I don't even know where that came from, as I wasn't trying to type skew - an English word the meaning of which is well known. Thanks for the cut/paste wiki lesson about stock keeping units, however :)

Aggressive spell checking in all word processing programs, it happens to all, you are absolved by the Space Pope of any sin! LibreOffice tried to replace SKU with Skew until I added SKU to its spelling dictionary! LibreOffice needs to work on allowing all automatic spell checking to be to be turned off, and not leave any automatic spell checking turned on! Users should be shown by just highlighting what words are not correct and letting the user individually choose from a list of suggestions.

Donations to LibreOffice need to be ear-mark-able by the donors as to what the money is to be used for, and Libreoffice needs to freeze any feature additions and fix their spelling dictionary/thesaurus. I'll donate to LibreOffice, but I have problems spelling and words come out backwards/mangled for me sometimes(dyslexia). Spelling is hard for me and sometimes I need to Google the miss-spelled word and rely on Google's cloud algorithms to guess the right words. It's time for spell checking to be accelerated on the GPU for users like me because my misspelling is so bad it chokes most spell checking provided in word processing programs! The LibreOffice people should get government grant funding earmarked for spelling algorithms accelerated on the GPU for brain damaged people like me (My brain's spelling functionality is broken)!

You can report 35 watts for the Carrizo FX8800P SKUs, but the technology/enthusiast press needs to be asking ALL of the OEMs for a definite date for when there will be general availability of Carrizo FX8800Ps in laptops that are engineered to run the FX8800P at 35 watts, and not 15 watts, because the part loses 30% of its performance at 15 watts relegated to those crappy Thin and Light form factor laptops that are turning customers away who would otherwise buy new laptops with the Carrizo FX8800P. The PC/Laptop market is losing business and sales with those Ultrabook/Thin and light abominations!

There are also serious thermal throttling issues with the FX8800P SKUs stuffed into those thin and lights by OEMs, and PCPer and other online publications really need to be on the OEMs about this! The GCN graphics in the FX8800P bests anything that Intel offers graphics wise at a comparable price point, even for the 15 watts parts! Just imagine if there were plenty of FX8800P laptop SKUs that were able to run the part at its full 35 watt design envelop without being throttled!

The lack of FX8800P 35 watt capable Laptop SKUs is a story in and of itself! So where are the hard questions for the OEMs that need to be asked!

Sebastian is skewed

Agreed. This teaches me not to draft news stories on my Nexus 6. Android autocorrect is not the best for technological parlance.

I get excited as well. I really enjoy pointing them out. It helps ensure professional and accurate reporting to help raise the overall quality of the site.

Usually it makes the reader who finds the error, to feel superior to the author. The better the author, the more proud the reader feels for himself, the more aggressive he can become in latter posts if the author doesn't fix/thanks him fast/enough.

Q3 2016? AMD maybe coming in a day late and a dollar short as Intel dominates the CPU market.
