AMD Strix Point Halo “55W” Ryzen APU Spotted, Strix Point “28W” Benchmark Leaks Out

Two new leaks of AMD's next-generation Strix Point APU family have surfaced and they cover both the 55W “Halo” and 28W “Standard” Ryzen chips.

AMD Strix Point APUs Leaked: 55W Halo Variant for FP11 Platforms and 28W Standard Variant for FP8 Platforms

Discovered by the latest leaks Harukaz5719 Joe managed to find a brand new shipping manifest that includes next-generation AMD Strix Point “Halo” APUs. The shipment includes microprocessors with an OPN ID of “100-000001243” listed as the Strix “Halo” SKU. The chip has a listed TDP of 55W and is designed for the FP11 platform. Based on other specifications, the chip is an “A0” step.

Based on what we know about AMD's Strix Point APU, the lineup will come in two flavors, a classic monolithic design with Zen 5 core architecture, 16 RDNA 3+ iGPU cores, and an XDNA 2″ Features up to 12 Ryzen-based CPU cores. Then there's the Strix Point “Halo” lineup, which will offer chiplets based on the Zen 5 core architecture with 16 CPU cores, up to 40 RDNA 3+ iGPU cores and the fastest NPU rating at 3x from Hawk's AI TOPs. . point This is the same Halo SK listed on the shipping manifest.

Following are some of the key features expected from Strix Point (1) APUs:

  • Zen 5 (4nm) chiplet design
  • Up to 16 cores
  • 40 RDNA 3+ compute units
  • XDNA 2 engine integrated
  • 2H 2024 Launch (Expected)

Apart from the Strix Point Halo APU, another standard Strix Point APU has also been spotted inside. GravityMark GPU benchmark database. This is a standard monolithic chip called a Strix point (1). This CPU has exactly the same OPN ID. It came to light a few hours ago with “AMD Eng Sample: 100-000000994-19_Y”. Based on what we can tell, it's a 12-core and 24-thread chip that features 24 MB of L3 cache and should also have a high-end iGPU configuration of up to 16 RDNA 3+ compute units.

Now here's a GPU-specific benchmark that shows the RDNA 3+ iGPU was clocking at 2.6 GHz and consuming around 24W of power (entire chip). This confirms that we are looking at a 28W TDP part. Currently, AMD's RDNA 3 iGPUs have clock speeds of up to 2.9 GHz so if the initial RDNA 3+ iGPUs are pushing up to 2.6 GHz, we can expect 3 GHz or more in retail chips. Also, the GPU was tested using the “24.10-231212a-398600E-ATI” driver.

We're not sure if this driver is compatible with the iGPU but regardless, this should be a very early Strix Point APU silicon and we should also expect the drivers to be in a very early state at this point. The GPU scored around the same performance as the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti Max-Q. But we expect it to be much higher based on previous rumours.. Following are some of the key features expected from Strix Point (1) APUs:

  • Zen 5 (4nm) monolithic design
  • Up to 12 cores
  • 16 RDNA 3+ compute units
  • XDNA 2 engine integrated
  • 2H 2024 Launch (Expected)

AMD is expected to launch its first Ryzen 9050 “Strix Point” APUs in the second half of this month so stay tuned for more information. Also expect more details at Computex 2024 during the AMD keynote..
