AMD has revealed more details about the new Ryzen 7040 (Phoenix Point) mobile processors unveiled at CES 2023 last week. These chips offer up to eight processing cores on the Zen 4 architecture.
Among the various series of mobile processors presented, the Ryzen 7040 (Phoenix Point) models are the only ones that use TSMC’s advanced 4nm class manufacturing process. The Phoenix Point series is represented by three chips: the eight-core Ryzen 9 7940HS up to 5.2 GHz, the eight-core Ryzen 7 7840HS up to 5.1 GHz and the six-core Ryzen 5 7640HS up to 5.0 GHz.
Eight-core models received 40MB of cache memory (1MB L2 per core and 32MB L3), with the younger model getting 38MB. All innovations have a dynamic TDP of 35-45 watts.
AMD explained that the processors do not support the PICe 5.0 interface, but have a new integrated graphics core Radeon 780M with 12 execution units, comprising a total of 768 RDNA 3-stream processors.Integrated graphics work at up to 2.90 GHz.
Ryzen 7040 (Phoenix Point) offers 20 PCIe 4.0 lanes. Thus it is possible to allocate 16 lanes for a discrete GPU and four lanes for an SSD. In addition, the new APUs support DDR5-5600 and LPDDR5-7600 RAM standards, and the total amount of supported RAM can reach 256 GB.
It is also worth noting that the new products support DisplayPort 2.1 UHBR10 and HDMI 2.1, which allows you to view an image in 8K resolution at 60 Hz. MPEG2, VC1, VP9, H.264, H.265 and AV1 codecs are supported.
