AMD’s upcoming Ryzen 8000 ‘Strix Point’ APU leak reveals 16 RDNA 3.5 GPU cores

The Ryzen 8000 series is expected to be launched in 2024.


  • AMD’s upcoming Ryzen 8000-Series ‘Strix Point’ APUs will likely have 16 RDNA 3.5 GPU cores and 12 Zen 5 CPU cores, making them powerful hybrid processors.
  • The lower image shows that the APU in question has a 45W TDP, indicating that it may be designed for laptops rather than desktops.
  • The leaked information also details the APU’s clock speed, memory configuration, and CPU design, highlighting AMD’s competitive edge against Intel’s upcoming Arrow Lake processors.

AMD is expected to release its Ryzen 8000 ‘Strix Point’ APUs next year, featuring a combination of Zen 5 CPU cores and RDNA 3.5 integrated graphics. The previous leak already revealed a lot about them, including the CPU load, and now another big leak has revealed the full GPU count which could be an example of Strix Point engineering.

According to HWiNFO’s image posted on Performance Databases, the Ryzen 8000 series could come with 16 RDNA 3.5 GPU cores and 12 Zen 5 CPU cores in a hybrid configuration. The chip detailed in the report comes with a 45W TDP, which suggests it may be designed for laptops rather than desktops. As we can see in the picture, the downloaded APU will come with 1024 connected shades, which means 16 Compute Units.

The leak also shows that the chip on display is based on the FP8 platform and has a clock speed of 2.12 GHz. In addition, the machine had 32GB of LPDDR5-6400 memory. The image also seems to indicate that the iGPU will ship with 512GB of GDDR6 memory, but that may be a mistake due to the unsupported APU.

A major leak earlier this month revealed that the Strix Point APUs can have Zen 5 and 8 Zen 5c cores at 12 cores and 24 threads. The report also stated that monolithic Ryzen 8000 APUs may have a hybrid CPU design with one CCD and two CCX. While one of the two CCXs is said to have 4 Zen 5 CPU cores and 8 threads, the other may have 8 Zen 5c CPU cores and 16 threads. In any case, with Intel’s Arrow Lake relaunching next year as the Ryzen 8000-series, it will be interesting to see how they will compete with each other.
