AMD Phoenix 2 “Ryzen 7040” APUs Characteristic 23% Smaller Die Measurement, Allegedly Make the most of Zen 4 & Zen 4C Core Combo

The primary AMD Phoenix 2 APUs which can be a part of the Ryzen 7040 sequence function a die measurement practically 23% smaller than the usual Phoenix chips.

AMD’s Phoenix 2 “Ryzen 7040” APUs to Make the most of “Hybrid” Technique & Smaller Die Space, Zen4 Structure Will Be Tuned In a Totally different Method

Replace: Golden Pig Improve has shared footage of the AMD Phoenix 2 APU sitting subsequent to the usual Phoenix APU which present a smaller die measurement on the identical package deal for the PHX2 chips.

Rumors a few potential AMD Phoenix 2 APU had been circulating some time again, and it appears to be like like we lastly have a glimpse of what the SoC will seem like. Credit to Twitter customers @xinoassasin and @BusAlexey; the AMD Phoenix 2 APUs will allegedly are available in a dual-sourced core configuration that includes each Zen4 and Zen 4C cores.

In accordance with the supply, the Zen 4C core is a strip-down model of Zen 4, which is downclocked, making it attainable for the APU to bin down from 8 high-clock cores to 2 high-clock and 4 low-clock cores. That is likely AMD’s model of the “hybrid” technique that was beforehand revealed.

You may need heard of an identical technique that Intel adopted with their twelfth Gen Alder Lake & the thirteenth Gen Raptor Lake CPU. Nonetheless, the principle distinction between AMD and Intel’s methods is the method to the core design. Intel utilized two core designs, Golden/Raptor Cove + Gracemont, whereas AMD will use the identical Zen 4 structure however with totally different configurations. Zen 4 and Zen 4C cores are principally the identical design however the latter is optimized for density and includes a decrease cache. It’s probably that future variants can undertake larger core counts as seen on the Bergamo EPYC chips.

AMD’s Phoenix 2 APUs are focused at entry-level platforms and have RDNA 3 Compute Items. So whereas the usual Phoenix chips function an 8-12 CU configuration, the Phoenix 2 APUs function half of that with 4 Compute Items on the Radeon 740M iGPU. Furthermore, it’s revealed that the die measurement is 137mm2 which is 23% smaller than the 178mm2 of the usual Phoenix SKUs.

Their dual-source could permit AMD to supply the Ryzen 3 7440U in the identical die package deal as the usual Phoenix chips beneath a unique OPN however that is not confirmed but. Moreover, the Phoenix 2 chips aren’t really suitable with the FP8 socket since no help is listed for that.

It’s anticipated that the AMD Phoenix 2 APUs will launch someplace between This fall 2023. The APUs will most likely be utilized in power-efficient PC gaming handhelds or laptops.
