AMD Ryzen 8000 series reportedly based on Zen 5 cores and TSMC’s 3nm node

We may still be a long way from getting our hands on Ryzen 8000 series processors, but leaks and rumours have already started to surface. Recently, a roadmap showing Strix Point was posted on social media, giving away the codename of the new Ryzen series — Granite Ridge. The roadmap had multiple rectangles blurred to hide the specifications of the architectures, but the few legible ones were enough to get us curious.

The leak originally posted on Weibo (via HXL) doesn’t show much about Granite Ridge, but it reveals some interesting new details about Strix Point APUs.

As per the roadmap and @Broly_X1, the Ryzen 8000 series APUs will follow Intel’s approach to mainstream processors and feature a hybrid architecture based on two core architectures: Zen 5 and Zen 4D. HXL believes that the Zen 5 core architecture will be employed on big cores, while Zen 4D will be used on small cores.

It was also claimed that desktop variants may not be hybrid, but they still should use Zen 5 cores, which will be based on TSMC’s 3nm node.

KitGuru says: As any rumour, it’s better to take all of this with a pinch of salt. It will take some time before AMD uses these architectures in any product, so changes to some of their specifications are expected.
