The first sign of AMD Ryzen 8050

It is alleged that AMD’s first Strix Point processor has now been spotted over at MilkyWay@Home website.

The distributed computing platform, such as MilkyWay@Home, has become a preferred tool for AMD engineers to test unreleased hardware quickly. This approach has been used before, leading to some leaks of AMD hardware over the past year.

In the recent leak, the focus is on AMD’s upcoming APU series called Strix Point. The OPN (AMD product code) and CPU family/device IDs match those of the upcoming Ryzen series, indicating a similar configuration for this processor.

There have been speculations that Strix Point might feature a 12-core configuration, potentially combining four Zen5 and eight Zen5c cores, or 8 Zen5 cores with an additional four Zen5c (dense) cores. Although the software used for testing is not a traditional processor benchmark, it does confirm the presence of 12 cores in the AMD Strix Point.

Furthermore, the AMD Strix series is expected to offer two types of dies, with either 12 or 16 cores. The latter, however, is not a replacement for Phoenix Point, but rather a new type of high-end APU processor, as per the leaked information. What has been confirmed is that both APUs will incorporate the RDNA3.5 architecture, with more GPU cores, promising a significant performance boost for AMD-powered mobile systems in the coming year.
