AMD Officially Announces Ryzen 7 8700F And Ryzen 5 8400F CPUs

AMD has updated its website with the release of the latest desktop CPUs. The Ryzen 8000F series was officially introduced on April 1st, however AMD provided limited information about the release. The new SKUs were briefly discussed during a special event in China, with no details on specs, pricing, or availability shared at the time.

It has now been confirmed that the new SKUs use Phoenix/Hawk Point silicon and essentially mirror the G-variants but without the integrated graphics. This means they miss out on a key feature of this silicon: efficient RDNA3 integrated graphics. However, in return, users get a lower price point and access to the latest Zen4 architecture.

According to AMD, the Ryzen 7 8700F and Ryzen 5 8400F will be available globally, dispelling earlier rumors that suggested they would be exclusive to China. However, reports suggest that these SKUs will initially only be accessible to OEM partners and potential system integrators. While this doesn't rule out their eventual release to the retail market, it does mean that they lack an official MSRP, and their availability depends on how soon these companies can offer them to retailers. Start doing it, which is very likely.


In terms of specifications, the Ryzen 7 8700F has 8 cores and 16 threads, boasting a base clock of 4.1 GHz and a boost clock of 5.1 GHz. It shares the same L2 and L3 cache as the Ryzen 7 8700G, which are 8MB and 16MB respectively. This SKU requires discrete graphics for operation, and no Ryzen AI (XDNA) processors are enabled.

The Ryzen 5 8400F is a 6-core processor with a base clock of 4.2 GHz and a boost clock of 4.7 GHz. Like the Ryzen 5 8500G, it comes with 6MB L2 cache and 16MB L3 cache. This SKU lacks support for Ryzen AI acceleration, indicating that it is likely based on the smaller Hawk Point silicon, which lacks a physical XDNA processor.
