After the reveal of the next-gen Ryzen mobile CPUs, the first of the 7000 series SKUs might have just been spotted by MilkyWay@Home.
The OPN code of 100-000000709-23_N on this engineering sample hasn’t been seen before. The Family and Model information is matching all details on the A70F00 code which is related to AMD’s Phoenix mobile CPU series. This information on the Extended Family/Model was revealed last year by Patrick Schur. It was presented as the Phoenix processor, with an FP8 mobile socket.
Up until now, we have seen three Zen4 OPN codes and this is the first time we have seen the 709 engineering sample. According to the MilkyWay website, there are 16 processors which stands for the number of threads here. This brings us to the conclusion that this CPU is based on an 8-core and 16-thread configuration. So far, this is the highest configuration in the entire Phoenix Point series.
AMD is also working on their ‘Dragon Range’ which is the company’s Ryzen 7000 series. This range is targeted towards high end gaming systems. The Dragon Range can be seen as a counterpart to Intel’s HX series which make use of the desktop CPUs designed for mobile devices. With that being said, we will soon be looking at the 16-core configuration coming to the Ryzen 7000 mobile. The only change is that this one is not going to be based on the Phoenix Point silicon.
There has been no official announcement regarding the Phoenix Point but if rumors are to be trusted, then we might see it being released towards the first quarter in 2023. Interestingly, the new APU design is combining the Zen4 x86 core and RDNA3 graphics microarchitectures. On top of this, it is also the first mobile APU based on the 4nm process technology.
