AMD Ryzen 7000: Phoenix and Raphael

Leaker Greymon55 extends the previous rumors on mobile Raphael by providing more details on the super high-end laptop series. 

Intel is just about to launch its Alder Lake-P mobile series featuring up to 14 cores based on a heterogeneous architecture with Performance and Efficient cores. AMD is not expected to provide a high-core count response right away, in fact, the upcoming Rembrandt-H will still be limited to 8-cores. However, by the end of 2022, we should be hearing a lot more about the 6000series successor, aka Phoenix-H and Raphael-H series.

Leaker Greymon55 clarified today what is to be expected under AMD Ryzen 7000 series, including Phoenix-H going up to 8 cores and 16 threads to be offered under 40 W and Raphael-H chip with 16-cores and 32-threads with more than 45W. Both products are to utilize 5nm Zen4 microarchitecture.

It wasn’t known AMD is planning to repurpose its desktop chip for the mobile segment until mid-October this year. But those plans might have been introduced just recently when the first leaks on Intel Alder Lake-S Mobile have begun to surface. The Alder Lake-P silicon which is limited to 6-big cores and 8 efficient cores will not be the highest tier in the Intel laptop segment, according to the rumors a repurposed Alder Lake-S silicon will. The rumored mobile SKU stack would therefore feature up to 8 Performance Cores and 8 Efficient cores, something that AMD Rembrandt will not be able to counter.

Although the codename Raphael is commonly associated with the desktop CPU series, the fact that Raphael might launch for the mobile segment is actually quite old. Back in March 2020 a slide featuring Raphael had surfaced which mentioned it coming to mainstream/performance desktop series as well as gaming laptops up to 65W.

It is unclear whether Raphael desktop will still be limited to 16-cores as well, after all, it might still be chiplet based and AMD has a lot of room for adjustment here. Neither the specs of its successor known as Granite Ridge and Strix Points are known at this point of time, however, both are to utilize a combination of 3nm Zen5 cores and 5nm Zen4d, which as Greymon55 claims are not the same cores as used in just announced Bergamo Epyc Cloud CPU with up to 128 Zen4c (cloud-optimized) cores.
