AMD’s next-gen Ryzen 8000 mobile processors may get delayed until the latter half of 2024. Tom from Moore’s Law is Dead broke the news yesterday alongside the mobility roadmap for Ryzen notebooks up to 2025. According to the YouTuber, the Ryzen 8000 family, consisting of Strix and Strix Halo, has been pushed to Q2/Q3 and Q4 2024, respectively.
Strix Point is supposed to feature a hybrid-core CPU with Zen 5 and Zen 5c cores, but these slides don’t mention it. Per them, Strix will top out at 12 Zen 5 cores with 24MB of L3 cache and a 16CU (1,024 cores) RDNA 3.5 iGPU. Strix Halo will be a chiplet based design with two 8-core CCDs based on TSMC’s N4 (4nm) node. It’ll combine 16 Zen 5 cores with 64MB of L3 cache and 32MB of MALL (Memory Attached Last Level) cache.
Halo will be paired with a monstrous 40 CU (2,560 cores) RDNA 3.5 iGPU, which should be as fast as mainstream consoles in optimized games. Both lineups will include an AI engine with a throughput of up to 40 TOPs. Halo will supposedly have a massive 256-bit memory bus to be paired with LPDDR5X memory. Strix will have a TDP of 15W to 45W, powering the U and H series processors, respectively. Strix Halo will have a TDP of 25W to 120W, powering the fastest ultrabooks and lightweight notebooks.
Strix will be accompanied by Kraken Point, an 8-core design with an RDNA 3.5 iGPU and an XDNA 2 chip. Fire Range will power the fastest gaming notebooks with up to 16 Zen 5 cores and a 3D V-Cache. As per MLID, Strix Point has been delayed to the second or third quarter of 2024, while Halo, Fire Range, and Kraken Point may get postponed to the last quarter of 2024.
