    Does anybody know if Rembrandt will have the new audio block?

    I think it was because Van Gogh was intended for a major product, e.g. a Surface, that got shelved. However, there has been chatter about Valve making a Steam handheld gaming PC and Van Gogh would be perfect for that (weaker than Rembrandt but with better battery life).

    Leaked roadmaps have "Dragon Crest" as a ~2022 successor to Van Gogh, but as a refresh with the same Zen 2 + RDNA 2. So something like Van Gogh will probably appear eventually even if Van Gogh is never announced/released.

    Probably, if it's meant to be the competitor to ~9W Intel chips in ultrabooks.

    You may be interested in "Monet". That's a rumored product that would be on GlobalFoundries 12LP+, which looks like a significant improvement to the 12nm node they were using before. Quad-core Zen 3, with less RDNA 2 CUs than even Van Gogh. It could ship in chunkier laptops with upgradeable RAM.

    Not hard to imagine that AMD found itself in a crunch for fab capacity (are console chips on that node?) and decided to defer or drop a lower-margin product they hadn't released yet.

    Might also have found they weren't getting the design wins they hoped for, as Intel fights back with Tiger Lake. The jump to Zen 3 is not trivial, could be saying "we'll wait for that".

    It also wasn't mentioned during the last AMD update a month ago or so, while they did talk about every thing else that was coming during H2.

    because *according to rumors* : "According to a fairly reputed source on Twitter (@Broly_X1), AMD has canceled its Van Gogh APU lineup aimed at ultra-low-power notebooks and convertibles"...

    One thing odd, though. Most of the times, SuSE were developing for others the audio drivers. Has AMD started developing their own drivers? I ask because the SuSE guys are really quick to squash bugs (from experience with some bloody old Yamaha chips)

    Since last year AMD has been working on VanGogh APU support for Linux initially with their graphics driver support and that has spread to other areas. It also turns out now that with VanGogh APUs will be a new Linux audio driver...
