I found/got from this article very interesting thought: AMD's APU, as shown
on this picture, could be left alone, even not connecting Chipset/PCH!?

I know that for INTEL this is impossible to do. With early INTEL ME
involvement to HW bring up (wrt PMIC and EC), I am wondering if this is

[1] Did anybody try some proprietary embedded design, with AMD's APU all
alone (is it at all possible)?

this is done/designed?
[3] if [1] is true. does Coreboot support such AMD designs (sans

Thank you,
