AMD chipset drivers list Ryzen 7045HX CPU series for ‘desktops’

AMD Dragon Range supposedly coming to desktops

Either a mistake or a confirmation of new Zen4 desktop APUs.

Who would be a better source for such a claim apart from AMD themselves. The company has reportedly listed Ryzen 7045HX Series Desktop processors as supported by the chipset driver. The 7040HX series is already deployed in high-end laptops featuring up to 16 Zen4 cores (two chiplets). Thus far, AMD made no announcements in regard to bringing such APUs to desktops, and the most recent update still relies on Zen3 architecture (Ryzen 5000G).

Worth noting that 7045HX CPUs do not feature powerful integrated graphics. Those processors have the same 2 Compute Unit configuration located in the SoC die, which is more of a display driver than a gaming-capable GPU. For that, AMD would still have to release Phoenix as desktop APUs, which would frankly speaking make a lot more sense as a desktop APU.

All that considered, we believe that AMD simply made a mistake of listing the series as ‘desktop’.
