The AMD Phoenix APU will feature an RDNA 3 GPU that offers performance that is said to be on par with desktop GPUs

Tech Highlights:

  • AMD is gearing up to launch its next-generation RDNA 3 GPUs later this year. RDNA 3 is rumored to offer incredible performance gains over the RDNA 2-based Radeon RX 6000 series video cards with even the low/midrange Navi 33 reportedly packing RX 6900 XT levels of performance. Now, new leaks are pointing towards AMD looking to transfer the power of RDNA 3 from discrete cards to integrated graphics with the upcoming Zen 4 APU codenamed “Phoenix”.

  • AMD The Phoenix APU will have an RDNA 3 GPU providing performance that is said to be comparable to desktop GPUs. RDNA 3 graphics and Zen 4 CPU cores are said to be included in AMD’s reported Phoenix APU.

According to rumours, AMD is working on a Zen 4-based “Phoenix” APU with a built-in GPU based on the future RDNA 3 architecture. According to leaks, the Phoenix APU could include up to 16 RDNA 3 CUs, resulting in a huge performance boost over current-generation AMD APUs.

AMD’s Phoenix APU reportedly packs up to eight Zen 4 cores and an RDNA 3 iGPU. Per Computer Base, the Phoenix APU will rock 16 RDNA 3 compute units resulting in 1536 stream processors. With almost triple the number of stream processors of the iGPU featured in the Ryzen 7 5700G, Tom’s Hardware speculates that the Phoenix APU will fall somewhere between the desktop RX 6500 XT and the RX 6600 in terms of performance. The information lines up nicely with our previous report about the Phoenix APU allegedly packing between 16 and 24 CUs.

Finally, the Phoenix APU will also seems to work with DDR5 and LPDDR5 memory with support for PCIe Gen 5. This is all we know about the Phoenix APU at this point. Questions like the price, the exact process node, and the release date are still unanswered. Rumors point to an early 2023 release date. However one thing is for sure, whenever it launches, the Phoenix APU will, if the reports about the iGPU are right, be a monumental achievement and make gaming on an integrated video card truly viable.
