Currently, the market is far from saturated with Ryzen 7040HS mobile processors of the Phoenix APU family – they appear mainly in portable consoles and from time to time in gaming laptops (that is, paired with discrete GeForce RTX 4000 graphics systems). We’re still waiting for mainstream laptops, and meanwhile there’s a surprisingly large amount of information on the Internet (just in time for the premiere of the next generation) about next year’s Ryzen 8000 series (Ryzen 8050HS?) APU Strix.
More screenshots showing an engineering sample of the AMD Ryzen 8000 processor from the APU Strix family have surfaced on the web. HWiNFO reads that the new processor has an integrated graphics chip that uses 16 CUs.

Screenshots from HWiNFO again show us an AMD Ryzen processor, built on a total of 12 Zen 5 cores. Four of them are “full” Zen 5 cores, while the remaining eight are energy efficient Zen 5c with low L3 cache and possibly clocks. less. Therefore, the system uses 12 cores and 24 threads (which distinguishes these processors from current Intel solutions). The screen also shows some information about the integrated graphics system, the successor to the Radeon 780M (possibly Radeon 880M).

The software confirms that the iGPU is using 1024 stream processors, which indicates a total of 16 CUs. Thus, the upcoming system will provide more computing units, but in addition to that, it will rely on an improved version of the RDNA 3 architecture called RDNA 3+. However, the software incorrectly indicates that the iGPU has 512MB of GDDR6 memory (if so, it is using LPDDR5 memory, as shown in the screenshot below). Thanks to the increased number of units, the new systems from AMD will be able to compete with the upcoming Intel Meteor Lake processors. But whether this is the case, we will only know in a few months.
