AMD Ryzen 8000U and Ryzen 7000G series spotted in shipping manifests
AMD is preparing at least several new parts right now, all based on the Zen4 architecture.
There has been a discussion regarding the complex nomenclature employed for Ryzen 7000 mobile CPUs. With the unveiling of the series, AMD mixed multiple architectures into a single product line, encompassing Zen2, Zen3+, Zen4, RDNA2, and RDNA3. The forthcoming 8000 series will maintain this practice, as corroborated by a recent leak.
The initial Ryzen 8000 APUs that have surfaced are intended for laptops, and they are designed with a 28W TDP in mind. According to the shipping record unearthed by @harukze5719, there are at least three new components currently in development:
AMD Ryzen 8040U (Hawk Point)
- Ryzen 7 8840U (100-000001325-00)
- Ryzen 5 8540U (100-000001326-00)
- Ryzen 5 PRO 8540U (100-000001331-00)
- Ryzen 3 8440U (100-00000XXX-00)
Considering the established naming conventions for AMD laptop processors, it is confirmed that these CPUs will all incorporate the Zen4 architecture. There’s a strong likelihood that these are part of the Hawk Point series, which is anticipated to be a revision of the Phoenix architecture. Nevertheless, it’s yet to be officially verified whether the naming is the sole change for this series. Additionally, this reaffirms that the new series will employ either the FP7 or FP7 Revision 2 socket, both of which are already in use by the Phoenix architecture.
Interestingly, there is also a shipping manifest for Ryzen 7000G series. As pointed out by the source, AMD Ryzen 7000G desktop CPU series featuring Phoenix silicon but on AM5 package, may at least for now, only use Phoenix2 die, which is the smaller die with fewer cores.
Instead of the 8 Zen4 CPU cores and 12 RDNA3 Compute Units, the smaller die only offers 6 Zen4(c) cores and up to 4 CUs. At this point, it is unclear if AMD has a plan to bring more powerful APUs to the market, but then there is hardly any reason not to. AMD’s own desktop Raphael series also features RDNA graphics, but those are of older generation and only limited to 2 CUs.
AMD Ryzen 7000G (Phoenix-G)
- Ryzen 5 PRO 7500G (100-000001183-00)
- Ryzen 5 7500G (100-00000931-00)
- Ryzen 3 7300G (100-000001187-00)
The fact that both series have surfaced in shipping records implies that their launch is imminent, most probably in the early part of the upcoming year, aligning with AMD’s customary practice of refreshing its mobile series during that timeframe.
