Folks browsing the SiSoftware benchmark database discovered an entry of an unnamed AMD Raven Ridge APU. As you may know, AMD recently stated that the first notebook APUs based on Zen are expected towards the end of this year.

The "Mandolin Raven" sample spotted in the SiSoft database is a quad-core, eight-threaded model with a 3.0GHz base frequency and a 3.3GHz Boost clockspeed. It has 512KB L2 cache per core and a shared 4MB L3 cache. The GPU part of the chip consists of 11 Compute Units with 64 stream processors per CU, resulting in a total of 704 Vega-based stream processors. The clockspeed of the GPU is 800MHz.

FUD Zilla speculates this model may be a mobile APU, although the frequency seems quite high for that:
We still do not have any details whether this is a desktop or a mobile APU and although it has an "M" in its codename, it has a rather high clock for a mobile part. Earlier unconfirmed roadmaps suggested that AMD Raven Ridge APUs would range from 35W to 95W, which means these will cover a wide market range.
