Ryzen 8000 APUs are said to be codenamed Strix Point.
AMD has been gradually downgrading its Zen 3 architecture through its different processor ranges (Ryzen 5000 desk, APU, EPYC Milan…) during the previous months. The company remains quite discreet at the moment about its future plans, which we discovered despite everything thanks to several leaks. The indiscretion of the day projects us into a few years, in the era of chips under the Zen 5 architecture, in other words the Ryzen 8000. The slide above mentions this designation as well as two code names, Granite Ridge and Strix Point; the first would designate the Ryzen 8000 desk lacking an integrated graphics solution, the latter has an APU.
This isn’t the first time we’ve talked about the Ryzen 8000 – about a month ago, we learned that AMD could adopt a big.LITTLE design for this range, like what Intel will soon offer with its twelfth generation of Core, the Alder Lake.
Zen 5: EPYC Turin, Ryzen 8000 Granite Ridge and Ryzen 8000 Strix Point APU
To put things in perspective, the Ryzen 8000 desk It would benefit, as mentioned above, from Zen 5 CPU cores, synonymous with 3nm engraving. In the current state of our knowledge, we assume that they will succeed the Ryzen under the Zen 4 architecture recorded at 5 nm responding to the code name Raphael, succeeding the current Ryzen 5000 Vermeer themselves (the hypothesis of a Zen 3+ generation at 6 nm Without However, the interposition between the two is not excluded). On the APU side, the Rembrandts or Pheonixes must transmit Cezanne’s APUs; Then came Strix Point. Finally, for server processors, after processors EPYC 7004 Genoa, it would be EPYC 7005 Turin. As for the Threadripper, we are still waiting for the ones on the Zen 3 architecture.
|Scope / Architecture||7nm Zen2||7nm Zen3||6nm Zen3 +||5nm Zen4||3nm Zen5|
|Ryzen HEDT||Castle peak||Chagall||Determined||Determined||Determined|
|Ryzen CPU||Matisse||Vermeer||Warhol||Raphael||Granite Ridge|
|Ryzen APU||Renoir / Lucienne||Cezanne / Barceló||Rembrandt||Phoenix||Strix Point|
Looking at the timeline, there is a general consensus that the Zen 4 processors will not be released until next year. So, don’t wait for the Ryzen 8000 until 2023.
