In a recent discovery, an Iranian media outlet called Sakhtafzarmag claims to have inside information about the upcoming AMD Ryzen 8000G series. The leaked details include specifications of the processors and suggest a launch date on January 31, 2024.
The leak mentions two different types of processors, called Phoenix 1 and Phoenix 2. It hints that AMD is planning to release Pro versions specifically designed for work computers, giving users a variety of options.
Phoenix 1 is the main processor, and it has the strong Ryzen 7 8700G. This one has 8 cores and 16 threads, going super fast at 5.1GHz. There’s also the Ryzen 5 8600G, which has 6 cores and 12 threads, running at a speedy 5GHz. Both these processors and their Pro versions share similar features, providing users with choices based on their needs.
The series uses labels like G and GE to indicate power usage, with G having a default power of 45W/65W and GE being more efficient at 35W, likely for portable devices.
Moving on to Phoenix 2, these processors combine Zen4 and Zen4C cores. You can pick from different options in the lineup, like the Ryzen 3 8300G, which has 4 cores and 8 threads, or the Ryzen 5 8500G, with 6 cores and 12 threads. This variety in core count lets you choose the one that suits your computer needs.
For performance enthusiasts, the Ryzen 7 8700G, featuring RDNA3 graphics, is expected to provide a significant performance boost, with a leaked 30-40% improvement over the last generation. Synthetic benchmarks show an even more impressive 250% increase in 3DMARK FireStrike alone.
The Ryzen 8700G is rumored to be way better in CS:GO, with a whopping 50% performance boost compared to its older version. This makes the Ryzen 8000G series a top pick for tech fans who love gaming.
The leaked info also spills the beans on the launch date – January 31, 2024 – for the Ryzen 8000G series. First out of the gate are the Ryzen 7 8700G, Ryzen 5 8600G, and Ryzen 5 8500G, giving choices to users with different performance needs. The Ryzen 3 8300G is expected to join later, tailored for system integrators who like flexibility.
In a surprise twist, the leak hints at two new chips – Ryzen 5 5600GT and 5500GT – making their debut in early 2024. Though we don’t know much about the benefits of these new GT series chips, Sakhtafzarmag suggests they’re here to replace the existing 5000G series. That’s a big change in the computing world.
