AMD Ryzen 8000G APUs Benchmarks, Specs, and Release Date Leaked!

AMD Ryzen APUs have become increasingly popular over the years. These nifty processors offer powerful integrated graphics performance, hence the advanced processing unit (APU) nickname. As the successor to the previously released Ryzen 5000G series (5700G, 5600G), it appears that AMD is Zen 4 architecture based Ryzen 8000G series APUs very soon. Now more details about the specifications, performance improvements and the Publication date of these new APUs have been leaked.

Ryzen 8000G specs and lineup leak

The information was shared via a Persian technical media outlet, Sakhtafzarmag. These new APUs are being launched AMD’s AM5 platform. This socket is home to the currently released one Ryzen 7000 just like the X3D counterparts. The Ryzen7 8700G This is said to be the best processor in this series.

Considering the name, it will succeed the previous generation R7 5700G for AM4 motherboards. We can see that there is quite a spec upgrade planned! According to the leak, the Ryzen 8700G will be present 16 cores and 8 wireswith a boost clock speed of maximum 5.10GHz. The TDP configuration listed for this specific processor is 65/45W.

We can see many other APUs here, including some that belong to the PRO setup, which offers several entrepreneurial opportunities. According to the leak, the Ryzen 7 8700G and 8600G will be based on a Phoenix 1 chip paired with Zen 4 cores. However, it is stated that other models, such as the Ryzen 5 8500G and 8300G, will use a combination of Zen 4 & Zen 4C cores.

Essentially, the Phoenix 2-based processors that launch won’t be as performant. The leak also makes it clear that Phoenix 1-based processors will offer manual overclocking support, while Phoenix 2-based processors will only support Precision Boost Overdrive technology. These new processors are expected to feature RDNA 3 architecture-based Radeon graphics.

AMD Ryzen 8000G performance benchmarks

Now we will talk about the performance benchmarks of the Ryzen 8000 (G series) APUs as mentioned in the leak. The processor is not mentioned by name and is also mentioned Ryzen 7 8000G Phoenix 1 in the benchmarks below. We can clearly see the huge performance improvement over the previous generation, the Ryzen 7 5000G APU.

The best cases are Doom Eternal & Cyberpunk 2077 (RT enabled), which appears to have demonstrated the Ryzen 7 8000G 2.8 to 2.9x profits. It’s clear that the RDNA 3 graphics on these new processors will significantly improve performance. We also see performance improvements in other games by around 1.7x to 2.6x, depending on the title.

If we see this leak is true, the new Ryzen 8000G APUs could feature a high-performance iGPU. It would be enough for many games, and some people may not even need a dedicated APU after installing this APU. The iGPU performance of the Ryzen 8000G APU could be comparable to dedicated GPUs like the Nvidia GTX 1060. Below we can see that it also does quite well in synthetic tests. 3DMark Night Raid & Fire Strike shows a performance gain of ~2.1x and ~2.6x respectively.

Ryzen 8000G release date leak and motherboard supplier confirmation

The leak states that the Ryzen 8000G APUs will be released January 31st. The Ryzen 7 8700G, Ryzen 5 8600G and Ryzen 3 8500G for desktop AM5 platform will reportedly launch on this date. Additionally, the leak states that AMD will also release a third X3D CPU for the AM4 platform known as Ryzen 7 5700X3D. It’s unclear whether this will be a global launch or a local launch like the Ryzen 5 5600X3D, which was only launched for the US market.

Moreover, we have official confirmation by Gigabyte about a 2024 launch of next-generation Ryzen 8000G APUs for the AM5 platform. Although they did not mention the generation number ‘8000’, it is clear that this new APU series is referred to. GIGABYTE (along with motherboard manufacturer ASUS, as I checked today) has released BIOS updates for the upcoming ‘Ryzen Next-Gen APUs‘. Again, this most likely refers to the Ryzen 8000 APU (G series) that we discussed in today’s leak.
