AMD is planning on releasing two Zen cored 14nm APUs targeted at embedded applications codenamed Great Horned Owl and Banded Kestrel. Horned Owl is a variant of next year’s Raven Ridge mainstream APU and Banded Kestrel is a separate design that essentially offers half the resources of Horned Owl. Both chips are pin-compatible and thus will be offered to the embedded market in the same FP5 BGA package. A version of Horned Owl will be offered for the AM4 socket. Expect to see Horned Owl in late 2017 and Banded Kestrel in mid-2018.
