AMD Zen 5 “Strix Halo” Mobile Processors Spotted with 120W & 64GB LPDDR5 Memory

AMD’s next-gen Zen 5 mobility flagship “Strix Halo” has been spotted again. This time the TDP, package, and memory details have been included. The leaked details confirm and add to what we’ve reported in the last couple of weeks. In case you missed our previous report, here’s a quick summary of Zen 5-based Strix Halo:

Strix Halo will feature 16x Zen 5 cores and 64MB of L3 cache (32MB x2). The GPU is housed on a separate die with 40 RDNA 3.5 Compute Units, or 2560 shaders clocked at 2-3GHz. It is the first integrated GPU to feature Infinity Cache, up to 32MB on-die. Halo will boast a potent NPU based on the XDNA 2 architecture.

The NPU on Strix Point is allegedly capable of delivering 45 TOPs so we can expect at least 75-80 TOPs from this behemoth. The processor should easily deliver ~100 TOPs of AI performance combined with the CPU and GPU.

The high-end Zen 5 mobile processors will have a TDP of up to 120W. That’s even higher than the Ryzen 9 7950HX3D, a repurposed desktop chip rated ranging from 55-75W. I reckon much of this power will be used to feed the 40 CU RDNA 3.5 GPU which essentially makes it a console. Strix Halo will feature up to 64GB of 16-channel LPDDR5 memory and the FP11 package with 16 PCIe Gen 5 lanes for discrete graphics and NVMe storage.
