Possibly the first screenshot featuring Ryzen 8000 in action

A website called Performancedatabases claims to have the first screenshot featuring the AMD Strix Point APU in action.

The website has shared two screenshots showcasing AMD’s alleged Ryzen 8000 mobile CPU with the codename Strix Point. While the CPU-Z screenshot doesn’t fully recognize the CPU, it can identify the compatible instruction set and the CPU’s physical dimensions. On the other hand, the HWiNFO screenshot confirms that the processor in question is indeed a Strix (Point) variant, manufactured on a 4nm node and boasting a 45W TDP. These specific details were manually added to the software.

The HWiNFO screenshot also provides more intricate information about clock speeds. However, it’s evident that the data is inaccurate, displaying a base clock speed of 8.8 GHz which is clearly incorrect. However, it is worth noting that AVX2 and AVX512 instruction support is present.

Of greater significance is the confirmation regarding core counts. The screenshot shows that the CPU comprises 4 big Zen5 cores and 8 smaller cores or Zen5 and Zen5c architectures to be precise. Notably, both types of cores support hyper-threading, a feature lacking in Intel’s Efficient cores. Additionally, it appears that the L1 data cache is 48 KB in size while the instruction cache spans 32 KB. Moreover, the P cores possess 1MB of L2 cache individually, whereas the grouped efficient cores collectively share 1MB of L2 cache.

These findings serve as the initial indication that Strix Point APUs are currently undergoing testing, with preliminary support from CPU-Z and HWiNFO. However, it’s important to note that these CPUs are presently in the Engineering Sample (ES) stage, and it’s anticipated that qualification units (QS) will not be available until the end of this year.
