Strix Point line coming next year

New information about the upcoming AMD Ryzen 8000 generation Strix Point processors has appeared on the Web. This is a mobile line, which, perhaps, will be divided into two: with a monolithic crystal and with a chiplet layout.

The new data concerns monolithic APUs. According to these data, such a crystal will receive a maximum of four large Zen 5 cores and eight small Zen 5C. It is worth noting here that HLX and Golden Pig Upgrade Pack insiders are talking about four Zen 5C cores and eight Zen 5D cores, and in the first case C means Classic, and in the second D means Dense. Considering that AMD already calls ordinary cores simply Zen 4 without any letter, and calls small cores Zen 4C, it is unlikely that the company will change the naming principle, moreover, to one that will only confuse everyone.

Returning to the novelties, they are also credited with 24 MB of third-level cache and a GPU based on the RDNA 3.5 architecture with 8 WGP blocks. That is 16 CUs or 1024 stream processors. Recall that the current Ryzen 7040U / H / HS has 768 stream processors, that is, the new iGPU will be much faster thanks to the new architecture, and due to a 33% larger number of computing units. So far, it is impossible to predict the performance of the conditional Radeon 880M with high accuracy, but if you simply add those same 33% to the Radeon 780M, you will get a level approximately the level of the GeForce GTX 1650 Laptop. And the increase may well be greater due to the architecture and, possibly, increased frequencies.

The Golden Pig Upgrade Pack insider once shared performance leaks of Intel CPUs of different generations, including publishing Intel slides describing these very Meteor Lake CPUs. Insider HXL (@9550pro) has long been one of the best in this segment. He was the first to share data on overclocking the RTX 4090, the first to publish the parameters of the Core i5-13400, and so on.
