AMD’s Ryzen 8000 CPUs have been spotted for the first time at the Eienstien at Home and LHC@Home benchmark databases. The processor is an octa-core chip with SMT2 and 16 logical processors or threads. We’re looking at an early engineering sample from Family 26 (Zen 5), part of Stepping 0. The CPU is paired with 1,024KB of cache, which I suspect refers to the L2 cache per core.
The same CPU was tested in both benchmarks, one using the iGPU and the other with a Radeon RX 7900 GRE 16GB discrete graphics card. It was paired with 32GB of DDR5 memory and Windows 11 Pro x64. The tests were conducted in the first week of June.
The Ryzen 8000 CPUs are expected to launch in the second half of 2024. Based on the Zen 5 core architecture, they will focus on single-threaded performance. The core front end will be revamped along with the core interconnect. The backend should remain the same, but the cache bandwidth/latency should be uplifted.
