AMD Ryzen 8000G AM5 Desktop APU Specifications Leak, Up To 2.5x Faster Than Ryzen 5000G In Gaming Benchmarks

Specifications & benchmarks of AMD’s upcoming Ryzen 8000G “Phoenix” APU family for the AM5 desktop platform have been leaked. The latest information comes from Persian tech & PC outlet, Sakhtafzarmag.

AMD Ryzen 8000G “Phoenix” APU Family To Include Up To 14 AM5 Desktop SKUs, Specs & Benchmarks Leak Out

The specifications are a follow-up to the previously leaked information that reported that AMD will be introducing its next-gen APU family for desktops under the Ryzen 8000G banner. The new APUs make use of two key technologies, first is the Zen 4 core architecture which will power the CPU side of things and the second is the RDNA 3 core architecture which will power the graphics. The new family will be supported on AM5 motherboards using the latest BIOS which has already been rolled out across multiple 600-series products, as reported here.

So coming to the specifications, the AMD Ryzen 8000G APUs will be available in both PRO and Non-PRO flavors which share identical specifications. The flagship SKU is going to be the Ryzen 7 8700G which would offer 8 cores, 16 threads, a base clock of 4.2 GHz, and a boost clock of 5.1 GHz. There’s also the Ryzen 5 8600G APU which features 6 cores, 12 threads, a base clock of 4.35 GHz & a boost clock of 5.0 GHz. Both of these APUs will be based on the Phoenix 1 die and feature support for OC.

The Phoenix 2 SKUs will include the Ryzen 5 8500G with 6 cores and 12 threads and the Ryzen 3 8300G with 4 cores and 8 threads. The 8500G operates at a base clock of 3.55 GHz and a boost clock of 5.0 GHz while the 8300G operates at a base clock of 3.45 GHz and a boost clock of 4.90 GHz. These two chips will be based on the Phoenix 2 die and feature PBO support minus the OC (manual) capabilities. The Phoenix 2 chips will also lack the higher-end RDNA 3 iGPUs such as the Radeon 780M and 760M. These would instead feature the Radeon 740M with just 4 compute units.

All of the standard Ryzen 8000G AM5 APUs will feature 65W/45W TDPs but each SKU will also come in 35W “GE” flavors which will feature slightly lower clock speeds but the same core configs. These APUs are said to launch on the 31st of January though actual availability is suggested for the 11th of February.

The outlet also shares some benchmarks of the AMD Ryzen 7 8700G (Phoenix 1) SKUs across several games and synthetic benchmarks in 1080p. The performance is compared against the Ryzen 7 5700G “Cezanne” which offers a Radeon Vega iGPU with 8 compute units (512 SPs) against the RDNA 3 iGPU on the Ryzen 7 8700G with 12 compute units (768 SPs).

The charts show the AMD Ryzen 8000G “AM5” Desktop APU offering over 2.5x performance boost in the performance tests but you are mostly looking at around 2x the gain which should be expected from the much newer RDNA 3 architecture. Based on the performance, it looks like these would end up being very decent chips for budget gaming and the general office user. The main question remains, what are the prices going to be like? It is likely that we won’t know about the final prices for a few months but more information is definitely coming our way around CES 2024 so stay tuned.
