    And now we have an expanded version of the story on Hexus: http://hexus.net/tech/news/cpu/11373...oadmap-shared/

    ... Lenovo is one of the Chinese OEMs that has made use of the KX-5000 SoC in pre-built systems recently. ...
    Pretty much as predicted. A locally sourced processor for Chinese OEMs.

    The KX-5000 looks like it's the first generation that's caught up to the integrated nature of modern AMD and Intel products (previously everything - including the memory controller - was on the chipset). The only thing that appears to be missing from the KX-5000 is the storage options AMD have included on Ryzen (which I don't think Intel have integrated yet either?).

    I'm impressed that lenovo managed to use those processors and no-one noticed until now.

    ETA: The roadmap is rather optimistic. They've got a chip running at 2 GHz on 28 nm, and hope to hit 3 GHz with a die shrink to 16 nm (both with DDR4, and all the other modern IO you'd expect). Then, apparently in 2019, they'll leapfrog to DDR5, PCIe 4.0, and match Zen 2 in performance (however that turns out).

    I think these are APU's, as the chipset block diagrams show graphics outputs

    There is a thread on AT forums which has updates on the newer CPUs VIA releases:
