AMD Ryzen 8000 series "Strix Point" APU: 12 x Zen 5 Cores + RDNA 3.5 GPU Cores
Jul 20, 2023

AMD's next-gen Ryzen 8000 series APU is in the headlines, with the codename "Strix Point" APU turning up in early ES (engineering sample) form with 12 x Zen 5 cores at the ready. Speaking of ready, we'll have next-gen Gaming PC systems with AMD's new Ryzen 8000 series "Strix Point" APUs in 2024.

The new AMD Ryzen 8000 series "Strix Point" APU will reportedly feature AMD's next-generation Zen 5 CPU architecture, as well as the newer RDNA 3.5-based GPU architecture. We have 12 cores and 24 threads of Zen 5 processing power in this Strix Point APU, but this is a "monolithic" design -- meaning one large chip, and not a series of smaller chiplets -- while the 16-core, 32-thread Zen 5-based CPU will be part of its "Halo" chiplet family.

What we do know from this Strix Point APU, is that it'll feature a monolithic Zen 5 design, RDNA 3.5 graphics cores, an "enhanced AI engine" and should launch sometime in the second half of 2024.

AMD's new Ryzen 8000 series CPU family will help fight out Intel's upcoming Arrow Lake and Meteor Lake CPU families, which will also be launching in 2024.
