AMD Ryzen 8000 APUs Launching in Early 2024 with 768 Core iGPU and 65W TDP

AMD’s Ryzen 7000 APUs (now renamed to Ryzen 8000) are on track for an early 2024 release, or so claims ECSM_Official (via ITHome). Team Red is expected to have a busy first quarter with three different launches on the cards. These include the Ryzen 8000 desktop processors (APUs), the Ryzen 7 5700X3D, and the Ryzen 5000 GT lineup.

The Ryzen 8000 processors will be the first APUs to launch on the AM5 platform. Focusing on a mix of CPU and GPU performance, they’ll make for efficient home/office PCs on a budget, not requiring a discrete GPU or a high-end PSU. The Zen 4 APUs set to hit the consumer market include the Ryzen 5 8500G, the Ryzen 5 8600G, and the Ryzen 7 8700G.

The Ryzen 5 SKUs are hex-core models, while the Ryzen 7 is an octa-core chip with a TDP of 65W (down from 170W on the Ryzen 7000X CPUs). The iGPU gaming performance of these chips leaked out a while back, which you can go through here. In short, the combo of a higher shader count and the upgraded RDNA 3 graphics architecture offers a 2-3x boost in gaming.

The Ryzen 7 5700X3D should be a lower-binned variant of the Ryzen 7 5800X3D with a boost clock of around 4.1GHz. It will consist of 8 Zen 3 cores and 96MB of L3 cache, the same as the 5800X3D. As for the Zen 3 GT chips, these are expected to be modified variants of Zen 3 with faster iGPUs and perhaps a lower CPU TDP.
