New details have emerged about AMD’s upcoming Ryzen 8000 “Strix Point” APU, which is expected to be released in 2024. According to a leaked CPU-Z screenshot, the Strix Point APU will be built on a 4nm process and feature a “Big.Little” CPU architecture with 4 performance cores and 8 efficiency cores.
Both the P and E cores will support hyper-threading. The L1 data cache will be 48KB for both the P and E cores, while the L1 instruction cache will be 32 KB. Each P core will have 1MB of cache, and the E cores will share 1MB of L2 cache in groups of 4.
Another leaked image shows that the Strix Point APU will have 1024 unified shaders. This suggests that the APU will have 16 RDNA 3.5 compute units (16 × 64 = 1024). The TDP of the APU is listed as 45W, and the socket type is FP8. The screenshot also shows that the APU is equipped with 32GB of LPDDR5 memory.
The Strix Point APU is expected to be the successor to AMD’s current “Phoenix” lineup of mobile processors. PC hardware enthusiasts are excited about the upcoming APU series, as it is rumored to have impressive iGPU performance that could rival modern discrete mobile solutions.
Here are some of the key features of the AMD Ryzen 8000 “Strix Point” APU:
