The very first die shots of AMD’s Phoenix 2 APUs including a hybrid Zen 4 and Zen 4C setup have actually been exposed over at Zhuanlan.
AMD’s Hybrid Phoenix 2 APUs Are Unlike Anything Intel’s Doing, Feature Zen 4 & Zen 4C Cores With Similar ISA
The die shots of the AMD Ryzen 7040 “Phoenix 2” APUs as soon as again verify using hybrid Zen 4 and Zen 4C cores within specific SKUs. AMD has actually been anticipated to go the hybrid path however they have actually likewise mentioned that their technique will be far various than the Intel P-Core and E-Core style for their hybrid chips.

The die shot can be seen revealing that AMD will gear up a big L3 cache, paired with a 2 +4 (Zen 4/ Zen 4C) combination. DDR5 and LPDDR5 user interfaces are likewise present on the die, which exposes that AMD prepares to incorporate the APUs into laptop computers and compact PCs.
Furthermore, it was reported that the AMD Phoenix 2 APUs will include the”GFX103″ RDNA 3 GPU IP, which we saw with the initial Phoenix lineup, for this reason they might bring substantial graphics and performance-per-dollar worth, integrating all the popular aspects from APUs in the market.
Now if we question AMD’s method to utilizing Zen 4 & Zen 4C cores with APUs moving forward, it looks like Team Red intends on producing an effective and inexpensive option, which would make the APU releases by AMD well-positioned. This brand-new style is simply a test case for AMD’s future APUs & we will see a more fully grown application within the upcoming Strix “Ryzen 8000” APU household in the coming year.
Far, AMD has actually slowly been rolling out the Phoenix 2 APU lineup on specific platforms. The very first evaluation of the APU has actually currently been released by David Huang at Zhuanlan utilizing a Ryzen Z1 hand-held console including the chip. The Z1 and the Ryzen 5 7540U share basically the very same specifications.
