Ryzen APUs

The team Red has teased a major jump in APU Gaming performance.

Don’t forget to put on your hats and keep your hats on, gamers. AMD’s new roadmap for hardware has been announced on AMD’s Financial Analyst Day, with the CEO Lisa Su revealing a range of new hardware that will be available for commercial and consumer needs.

Hidden among the announcements about Zen 5 CPUs and details regarding RDNA 3 is a concise note about AMD’s planned launch of the brand new ‘Phoenix and ‘Strix Point Ryzen APUs that are thin and light for gaming laptops that will be available in 2023.

For those who aren’t aware, the term “APU” means Accelerated Processing Unit APU is a that which combines a CPU with an integrated GPU into one component.

These Phoenix Point APUs will utilize the Zen 4 processor microarchitecture as well as RDNA 3 graphics which require power ranging between 35W and 45W. These chips will adhere to AMD’s name convention and be known as the Ryzen 7000H-series.

The Strix Point APUs, which are scheduled to launch around 2024. The Strix Point APUs will utilize an architecture called the Zen 5 CPU design, which is expected to be released in desktop CPUs later that year.

AMD will also unveil its RDNA 3+ IGP processors, as well as they are expected to include the L4 cache technology. AMD is also releasing new data center APUs that have identical specifications.

Analysis: Can we expect better gaming notebooks in 2023?

The APUs are a huge option in ultra-portable gaming laptops. The earlier generation of 6000H-series APUs called ‘Rembrandt’ were the first ones to use RDNA design (older H-series APUs using Vega graphics) and came with the superb Ryzen 7 processor, which is found in Corsair’s gaming laptop.

RDNA 3 (and it’s 3+ version) is expected to be extremely beneficial for gaming laptops, with or without a discrete GPU. With Rembrandt’s iGPUs outperforming older 1080p GPUs such as GTX 1060, we should expect high-quality gaming performance at 1080p with these new APUs.

This would make FHD gaming on a thin notebook possible, without having to compromise on graphic frames or settings.

The lower power requirements and (hopefully) lower heat production of The Phoenix as well as the Strix Point APUs make them perfect for gaming using integrated graphics in a light and thin system, as well.
