Does Project Quantum still exist? This year’s patent for AMD’s mini-PC indicates yes!


Small PC reappears on Twitter and speculation already begins on new hardware

A E3 2015 was legendary for several reasons, and two of them happened in the same fateful event: the PC Gaming Show, who made his debut that same year. In addition to the unforgettable cold pizza at Adrenaline, during the presentation AMD appeared to speak of Radeon R9 Fury X, but decided to surprise the crowd with the revelation of a mini-PC, the Project Quantum.

Years went by and we had no more news about AMD’s ready-to-play box. The company did not even announce its final burial, but it also did not provide any information about its existence. That is why two stubborn Twitter accounts came to the rescue with confirmation: Project Quantum lives!

The bill @_rogame started the speculation by sharing details about a patent that a colleague would have commented on with him (or her). Followed by the tweet, another user, who signs as @Pete_2097, went there and found the patent that, to everyone’s surprise, refers to Project Quantum. The most interesting part? The patent was registered on September 15, 2020.

This means that AMD is still working on the project this year, including taking care not to lose its name and rights over it.

– Continues after advertising –

But of course a lot has changed in the last few years, including the revolutionary introduction of processors Ryzen and the extremely recent launch of generation Big Navi branded GPUs. This has already raised speculation that if Project Quantum is really shown again this year, it should come with revised hardware. Obviously, this is what is expected.

As of the time of this posting, AMD remains silent about any new official information from Project Quantum. But with the circulation of this patent, the company may feel obliged to make a public statement on the matter.

Adrenaline wants to know about its users: are you excited about the possibility of a full AMD mini-PC equipped with Zen 3 and Big Navi? Leave your opinions in the comments, as always.
