Ryzen 7000 (Raphael) processors have demonstrated to be a number of the greatest CPUs in the marketplace. At current, the one AMD chips to relaxation on the AM5 socket. Nevertheless, that would change very quickly. In accordance with a desk (opens in new tab) from the Gigabyte hack final 12 months, (which we advocate you throw a little bit of salt over), AMD’s Rembrandt and Phoenix APUs might transition from cell to desktop, giving the AM5 socket two new tenants.
The leaked data reportedly factors to 3 forms of Ryzen processors that make use of the AM5 socket. All of them belong to the processor Household 19h, constituted by AMD’s Zen 3, Zen 3+ and Zen 4 chips. We all know that Kind 2 (Fashions 60h-6Fh) refers back to the Ryzen 7000 lineup as a result of the Zen 4-based chips sport the “A60F12” CPU ID. The specs for Kind 2, such because the 28 PCIe lanes, shortly gave it away.
The Kind 1 (Fashions 40h-4Fh) and Kind 3 (Fashions 70h-7Fh) processors are at the moment unreleased. We consider that Kind 1 will be the Ryzen 6000 sequence (Rembrandt), whereas Kind 3 will be the Ryzen 7040 sequence (Phoenix), cell APUs that AMD has already introduced. The CPU ID for Rembrandt is “A40F41”; Phoenix needs to be “A70F71.” Phoenix targets ultra-thing laptops and is meant to hit the retail market; nonetheless, we have not seen the chips in a public database to corroborate the CPU ID.
Rembrandt comes with Zen 3+ cores and RDNA 2 graphics. TSMC manufactures Rembrandt for AMD on the foundry’s 6nm node. Phoenix, then again, is the extra thrilling prospect. Phoenix, which options TSMC’s 4nm node, pairs AMD’s newest Zen 4 cores and RDNA 3 graphics. The chips additionally sport the XDNA know-how, an FPGA-based AI engine that AMD acquired when it bought Xilinx. AMD’s earlier desktop APUs, such because the Ryzen 7 5700G, caught to an octa-core configuration. Cell Rembrandt and Phoenix max out at eight cores and 16 threads, so the recipe suits AMD’s desktop APUs.

Like Raphael, Rembrandt and Phoenix arrive with DDR5 reminiscence assist, as much as two reminiscence modules per channel. Shoppers have been asking for a modern-day APU that may exploit DDR5 for a while now. AMD APU’s craze for high-speed reminiscence is properly documented, so seeing how a lot they will profit from speedy DDR5 reminiscence can be attention-grabbing.
There can be some options that customers will miss with Rembrandt and Phoenix, although, resembling PCIe 5.0 connectivity. Rembrandt and Phoenix solely assist PCIe 4.0, so they won’t be obtainable to benefit from PCIe 5.0 SSDs on the desktop. Enlargement and connectivity are barely restricted as properly. Whereas Raphael delivers 28 PCIe lanes, Rembrandt and Phoenix solely provide 20, 29% fewer lanes.
The connectivity choices clearly fluctuate among the many three totally different Ryzen processor households. In accordance with the leaked desk, one Rembrandt variant (Mannequin 40h) provides three USB 3.2 Kind-C ports, whereas the opposite variant (Mannequin 44h) delivers two USB 4 ports and one USB 3.2 Kind-C port. As well as, Phoenix reportedly arrives with two USB 4 ports and one USB 3.2 Typ-C port.
Admittedly, AMD hasn’t given APUs the love they’re entitled to during the last couple of generations. APUs stagnated across the Zen 3 interval. The final APU that AMD launched was the Ryzen 5000G (Cezanne) sequence in 2021. Sadly, the poor 7nm Zen 3 chips have been nonetheless on the hoary Vega graphics engine. So AMD’s APUs are in line for a well-deserved improve, and hopefully Phoenix can present it.
