AMD Ryzen 8000 "Strix Halo" APU: 16 x Zen 5 CPU cores + RDNA 3.5 GPU cores
Jul 31, 2023

AMD's next-generation APU series will be based on the Zen 5 CPU architecture, with the upcoming Ryzen 8000 series APUs headlined by the "Strix Halo" set to be quite the APU beasts indeed. We're talking 16 cores based on the Zen 5 architecture, which will reportedly be divided into two chiplets. We will see the "ultimate APU" featuring an IO die that packs the GPU, and that too, won't be a performance slouch.

We are also to expect the "Hawk Point" APU which will be a lower-power APU, as well as the "Fire Range" APU which will have more power being pumped into it. These new APUs will be ready for your new Gaming PC in 2024, inside of our Ready to Ship Gaming PCs... here's what to expect:

  • AMD Ryzen 8040 series "Hawk Point" aka "Mainstream APU": Monolithic (8 x Zen 4) at 28-54W TDP 
  • AMD Ryzen 8050 series "Strix Point" aka "Premium APU": Monolithic (4 x Zen 5 + 8 x Zen 5c) at 28-54W TDP
  • AMD Ryzen 8055 series "Fire Range" aka "High-end APU": Multi-chiplet (16 x Zen 5) at 55-75W
  • AMD Ryzen ??? series "Strix Halo" aka "Ultimate APU": Multi-chiplet (16 x Zen 5) at 55-120W

Inside, we can expect the next-gen Zen 5 CPU cores, as well as updated RDNA 3.5 GPU cores, and an enhanced AI engine. 

On the desktop side of things, we can expect the Ryzen 8000 series "Granite Ridge" CPUs to feature up to 16 cores based on the next-gen Zen 5 architecture, with 65-170W TDPs... much higher in the desktop as always, also using a multi-chiplet design. AMD's upcoming Ryzen 8000 series APUs and desktop CPUs will all be released in the second half of 2024.
