AMD’s far-flung Ryzen 8000 Series APUs will reportedly take a page out of ARM (big.LITTLE) and Intel’s (Alder Lake/Raptor Lake) playbooks by mixing high-performance cores and high-efficiency cores into a single product. The rumor stems from MoePC’s Venomancer Marvin, who claims that these processors (code named “Strix Point”) will be built on TSMC’s 3-nanometer process and feature eight “big” Zen 5 cores and four “little” cores. AMD is supposedly planning to launch its Ryzen 8000 Series APUs in 2024.

Strix Point will be manufactured using TSMC N3 process. N3’s current schedule is for trial production in 2021, 2022H2 HVM. Of course, the first batch of adoption will definitely be Apple. Strix Point will be manufactured on TSMC N3. N3 is currently scheduled to carry out risk production within 2021 and targeting HVM in 2022H2.
