Following the Zen 5 Ryzen 7 desktop leak, the first Zen 5-based mobility chip has been spotted. The Ryzen 8000 lineup, codenamed Strix Point, will succeed Phoenix Point sometime in late 2024. Leveraging the Zen 5 core architecture and the RDNA 3.5 graphics engine, it will power mainstream and upper midrange notebooks. The engineering sample spotted features 12 Zen 5 cores and 16 RDNA 3.5 Compute Units (CUs).
In addition to the 12 Zen 5 cores and 16 graphics units, Strix Point will have a dedicated AI engine based on the XDNA architecture. The iGPU will feature 768 stream processors with a boost clock of 2.5GHz to 3GHz.
Strix Point will be joined by Strix Halo, which, as the name suggests, will be a Halo product. It’ll be a chiplet design with 16 Zen 5 cores across two CCDs and up to 40 Compute Units (debatable) or 2,560 stream processors. Strix Point has already been confirmed as the successor to Phoenix Point with Zen 5 CPU cores and an RDNA 3+ iGPU engine. It’s only a matter of time before we see more leaks.
