It is said that the code name of the AMD series chips that will emerge in the Zen 4-based Ryzen 7000 mobile APUs is Phoenix.
The tweet sent by a software engineer named Patrick Schur sparked several rumors about what the AMD Ryzen 7000 mobile APU series might be. Schur had mentioned Raphael before. It is assumed that Raphael will be the desktop successor to Warhol, the successor to the current Ryzen 5000 Vermeer family, and will be based on the AM5 microprocessor socket. AMD’s Zen 4-based 5 nm Ryzen 7000 mobile APU is said to come under the code name Phoenix.
It reveals that Phoenix has the CPUID A70F00 and will more precisely use the FP8 socket. This shows that Phoenix is a mobile processor. The reason for this is that current Cezanne Ryzen 5000 mobile APUs use FP6. Additionally, Phoenix is expected to still offer DDR5 support and use the 5 nm fabrication process, which is supposed to come with Rembrandt.
It is said that PCIe 5 support may also be included in the Ryzen 7000 Phoenix. While it is stated that up to 12 cores can be found in Phoenix APUs, it is also possible to have more processor cores. However, it seems likely that the Ryzen 7000 will have RDNA2 graphics technology on the side of the iGPU architecture.
Phoenix is expected to arrive by the first quarter of 2023.
