AMD Phoenix Point: Zen4 for laptops
Bringing the immaculate Zen 4 architecture to be slim and light laptops, AMD’s Ryzen 7000 ‘Phoenix Point’ CPUs have been seen in the [email protected] database. It happened following last week’s reveal, and the mobile Phoenix and Strix Point series for next-gen Ryzen mobile CPUs have been spotted.
A code that has not been seen before, known as the OPN code of 100-000000709-23_N, is seen in the engineering sample. In coalition with the AMD Phoenix mobile CPU series, the Family and Model information is seen to match the A70F00 code. Patrick Schur confirmed this Extended Family/Model information as a Phoenix processor based on an FP8 mobile socket.

AMD Ryzen 7000 ‘Phoenix Point’ 8-Core CPU Shows Up, Features 8 Zen 4 Cores For Laptops
In addition to the [email protected], the AMD Ryzen 7000 ‘Phoenix Point’ APU was also seen in the leaks at Benchleaks and TUM_APISAK. As the first-ever sighting of the ‘709’ engineering sample, we have only known about the three Zen4 OPN codes. Leading to them being threads, the ‘number of processors’ appears to be 16, as listed by the MilkyWay website. Leading to being the highest configuration for the Phoenix Point series, the CPU jumps on to 8-core and 16-thread arrangements, which seems to be a big lap-up. The AMD Phoenix Point APUs, which will be reaching their max at the mentioned benchmark, the Ryzen 7000 ‘Dragon Range’ CPUs will more likely be pushing to 16 core counts regarding the laptop segments.
Now looking at some of the CPU entries,
AMD Ryzen 7000 “Phoenix Point” (Mobile)
- AMD Eng Sample: 100-000000709-23_N [Family 25 Model 112 Stepping 0] – 8 core / 16 thread
AMD Ryzen 7000 “Raphael” (Desktop)
- AMD Eng Sample: 100-000000665-21_N [Family 25 Model 96 Stepping 0] – 16 core / 32 thread
- AMD Eng Sample: 100-000000666-21_N [Family 25 Model 96 Stepping 0] – 8 core / 16 thread
AMD confirmed to utilize both Zen 4 and RDNA 3 cores in its Phoenix Point APU lineup. With SKUs varying from 35W to 45W, the brand new Phoenix APUs will carry LPDDR5 and PCIe 5 support. Most probably, at the CES 2023, the lineup will be ready to launch 2023.
Noting the targeting high-end gaming systems, AMD is also making the Ryzen 7000 series known as “Dragon Range”. Using the desktop CPUs in mobiles, the Intel HX-series is expected to face a counterpart in the face of these newly designed series by AMD. The 16-cores are more likely to be seen in the Ryzen 7000 mobile, but they are not expected to be based upon Phoenix Point silicon.
With AMD Phoenix Point not having an official release date, most rumors point to the Q1 2023 release. The new APU design will bring together the Zen4 x86 core and RDNA3 graphics microarchitectures. With the 5nm desktop Raphael being expected at the end of the year, this will probably be the first 4nm mobile APU.
Looking at all the information provided by the MilkyWay, this is all of the stuff, and it points out to a venture of excitement and triumphant tech. As it is all rumors, things can change and we can be getting some much more fitting tech from AMD.
