The entire Ryzen 8000 desktop lineup has leaked out, detailing the first AM5 APU lineup from AMD. Codenamed Hawk Point, these processors are derived from the Phoenix Point mobility family. We’re looking at up to 8 cores based on Zen 4 and the RDNA 3-based Radeon 780M iGPU with 12 CUs. The Ryzen 8000 APU lineup will consist of 6 or more SKUs, including 3 PRO variants for workstations.
Starting from the bottom, we have the Ryzen 3 8300G with four cores clocked at 3.45GHz and 8MB of L3 cache. The Ryzen 5 8500G packs six cores clocked at a base clock of 3.35GHz and 16MB of L3 cache. The 8600G bumps the clocks to 4.35GHz. The Ryzen 7 8700G features eight cores clocked at 4.2GHz and 16MB of L3 cache. All these SKUs have a TDP of 65W and are (mostly) identical to their PRO variants.
The higher-end Ryzen 7 and Ryzen 5 APUs are based on Phoenix 1, while their lower-end siblings leverage the Phoenix 2 die. The latter lacks overclocking support and features the cut-down 4 CU Radeon 740M iGPU. Meanwhile, Phoenix 2 features full-fledged overclocking support and the 8 CU Radeon 780M iGPU.
The Ryzen 8000 processors will also feature low-power “GE” variants with a TDP of 35W at the cost of reduced clocks but otherwise identical core configurations. We don’t expect AMD to bring their Ryzen AI “NPUs” to these desktop APUs. Although the SoCs are the same as the Ryzen 8040 chips, it doesn’t make much sense for the DIY segment. The PRO variants are a different story.
