AMD’s Ryzen 7000 APUs (now renamed to Ryzen 8000) are on track for an early 2024 release, or so claims ECSM_Official (via ITHome). Team Red is expected to have a busy first quarter with three different launches on the cards. These include the Ryzen 8000 desktop processors (APUs), the Ryzen 7 5700X3D, and the Ryzen 5000 GT lineup.
The Ryzen 8000 processors will be the first APUs to launch on the AM5 platform. Focusing on a mix of CPU and GPU performance, they’ll make for efficient home/office PCs on a budget, not requiring a discrete GPU or a high-end PSU. The Zen 4 APUs set to hit the consumer market include the Ryzen 5 8500G, the Ryzen 5 8600G, and the Ryzen 7 8700G.
The Ryzen 5 SKUs are hex-core models, while the Ryzen 7 is an octa-core chip with a TDP of 65W (down from 170W on the Ryzen 7000X CPUs). The iGPU gaming performance of these chips leaked out a while back, which you can go through here. In short, the combo of a higher shader count and the upgraded RDNA 3 graphics architecture offers a 2-3x boost in gaming.
The Ryzen 7 5700X3D should be a lower-binned variant of the Ryzen 7 5800X3D with a boost clock of around 4.1GHz. It will consist of 8 Zen 3 cores and 96MB of L3 cache, the same as the 5800X3D. As for the Zen 3 GT chips, these are expected to be modified variants of Zen 3 with faster iGPUs and perhaps a lower CPU TDP.
