[Update] The AMD 4700S kit is an Xbox X Series APU

Some time ago, images of an AMD 4700S PC desktop kit surfaced. From the beginning, it was understood that AMD seemed to have an excess stock of defective Xbox chips since this system did not have the graphics part enabled. Update 26/06/21] AMD officially decides to release this kit The kit has now been officially listed by AMD. According to AMD, the DIY 4700S desktop kit is an all-in-one solution that includes the processor (and cooler), motherboard and memory in a single unit. There is still no pricing information, but retail prices of around $250 to $400 USD seems to be in the cards. It is likely that this kit will be found on barebones systems in the coming weeks.

AMD king of recycling?

This APU 4700S kit has been made available (in a very reduced way) for sale to the hobbyist market. The AMD 4700S is a reference sold as a complete kit the CPU, its motherboard and its memory on the Asian markets. AMD 4700S The most surprising point of this story is that this small motherboard, in mini ITX format, does not have a ram slot. And for good reason since it comes equipped with 16GB of GDDR6! A twitto was able to get his hands on a kit and publish some pictures. His account being very recent, we are now waiting with impatience for more details when he will have been able to enter the bios or remove the ventirad. AMD 4700S The AMD 4700S is composed of a chip with 8 cores and 16 threads based on the Zen 2 core architecture. The processor operates at up to 4.0 GHz (compared to 3.8Ghz in an Xbox) and has a 12 MB cache. The motherboard has a classic PCIe slot that allows it to use a graphics card including the largest. The technical curiosity lies in the AMD Cardinal motherboard, which uses the 16 GB GDDR6 memory directly soldered to the system. Of course, we’ll leave it at that with this system, which is only interesting because of its originality and probably the functioning of the memory part.AMD 4700S AMD 4700S
