Currently, all the information regarding the Phoenix is known, it will be based on TSMC 5nm process and DDR5 support. It is also rumored to feature RDNA integrated graphics.

The site also claims to have information on Zen5 architecture that will be allegedly codenamed as “Strix Point”. The series will fall under Ryzen 8000 series and will be manufactured using TSMC 3nm process. It is also mentioned on the site that AMD has already set its targets for the graphics performance of Strix Point. It is said to bring major changes to the memory subsystem; unfortunately, there is no information on the changes yet.

Zen 5 APU “Strix Point” belongs to Ryzen 8000 series (at the time of writing), and it will adopt big.LITTLE like Intel’s Alder Lake and Raptor Lake, with 8 big Zen 5 cores and 4 little cores. It’s scheduled to be launched in 2024.

The biggest difference between the Zen 4 and Zen 5 architecture will be the ARM’s big.LITTLE approach. This means that Zen 5 will have a combination of high-performance (big) and high-efficiency (small) cores, just like the upcoming Intel Alder Lake series.

As per the report, the AMD Zen5 “Strix Point” is expected to launch in 2024. The report also mentions that it is too early to talk about a product that will arrive 3 years from now since a lot can change.
