AMD's Enthusiast Ryzen “Strix Halo” APUs Spotted: 120W TDP, FP11 Platform & 64 GB Memory

AMD's Enthusiast Ryzen “Strix Halo” APUs Spotted: 120W TDP, FP11 Platform & 64 GB Memory

AMD's high-end Ryzen “Strix Halo” APUs are once again seen in the manifest shipping with a 120W TDP.

More AMD Ryzen “Strix Point” APUs with capacities up to 64 GB were found in the shipping manifest

Seen on the shipping manifest. nbd.ltd by the @harukaze5719 And includes several batches of the same chip that are expected to have been shipped for testing and evaluation purposes. The manifesto also reveals the Maple DAP reference evaluation platform that comes in 32GB and 64GB memory capacities. Note that these are not on-package memory modules as we'll see with Lunar Lake CPUs but rather on the reference platform itself as they come with pre-soldered memory.

The AMD Ryzen “Strix Halo” APUs listed here are 120W in line with their maximum TDPs which are expected to reach 130W. The reference evaluation platform is based around the FP11 board platform.

AMD Strix Halo, a revolutionary Ryzen APU for the client segment

gave AMD Strix Halo APUs There will be chiplet offerings using up to 3 Ds, 2 CCDs, and 1 GCD. The chips will feature up to 16 Zen 5 cores with 32 threads. These chips will maintain the same L1 and L2 cache structure to have a maximum of 16 MB of L2 cache while L3 cache will be increased to 32 MB per CCD. So we can see up to 64 MB of L3 cache on the above (two CCD) chips. The CCDs are said to be different from those used on Granite Ridge. Also, only GCD is mentioned which means there can be no IOD on the package.

On the iGPU side, the Strix Halo APUs will retain the RDNA 3+ graphics architecture but will be equipped with 20 WGPs or 40 Compute Units. Additionally, to support such high-end iGPUs on a chiplet design, there will also be an additional 32 MB of MALL cache on the IOD that will eliminate bandwidth constraints for this uber iGPU.

Other specifications include support for up to LPDDR5x-8000 (256-bit) memory, and an AI “XDNA 2” NPU that is capable of delivering over 70 peak. The Strix Halo APUs will be centered around the latest FP11 platforms. These APUs will feature TDPs of 70W (cTDP 55W) and support peak ratings of up to 130W.

AMD Ryzen AI HX Strix Halo Expected Features:

  • Zen 5 Chiplet Design
  • Up to 16 cores
  • 64 MB of shared L3 cache
  • 40 RDNA 3+ compute units
  • 32 MB RAM (for IGPU)
  • 256-bit LPDDR5X-8000 memory controller
  • XDNA 2 engine integrated
  • Up to 60 AI tops
  • 16 PCIe Gen4 Lanes
  • 2H 2024 Launch (Expected)
  • FP11 Platform (55W-130W)

For displays, AMD Strix and Strix Halo APUs have both eDP (DP2.1 HBR3) and external DP (DP2.1 UHBR10), USBC Alt-DP (DP2.1 UHBR10) and USB4 Alt-DP (DP2.1 UHBR10). Will come along. ) support as part of their media engines. Strix Halo DP2.1 will support up to UHBR20.

AMD is expected to officially announce and unveil its next-gen 5 “Ryzen” CPU portfolio. Computex 2024 Keynote So expect more information in less than a month.
