Next-gen AMD Ryzen APUs coming out “at the end of January 2024”

While announcing the release of a new AGESA Beta BIOS for its 600-series motherboards, Gigabyte confirmed that the next generation of AMD APUs, presumably named Ryzen 8000G, will be available by the end of January 2024.

Gigabyte has stated that AGESA Beta, which introduces support for AMD's next-generation APUs, is now available for its 600-series motherboards. The final version of the BIOS will be launched by the end of this month. So, theoretically, if you get your hands on an engineering sample of the upcoming APUs, you should be able to run it as long as the motherboard has the latest Beta BIOS installed.

This information confirms the recent rumours regarding the release of the new Ryzen G-Series (Ryzen 8000G?), reportedly coming out in the next two to three months. In contrast to the current lineup, which uses the Raphael die and provides limited integrated graphics capabilities based on the RDNA 2 architecture, the Phoenix AM5 SKUs are projected to have up to 12 CUs based on RDNA 3 architecture.

Rumour has it that at least four SKUs are in the works, covering 8, 6, and 4 core configurations. The 8000G mid-range and entry-level devices are believed to be based on the Phoenix2 chip, which combines Zen4 and Zen4c microarchitectures on a single die. We expect to learn more about these APUs in early 2024.

KitGuru says: If you're waiting for the release of the new generation of AMD Ryzen APUs, it seems you won't have to wait much longer. What type of system do you plan to build with such an APU?
