AMD recently shared a roadmap teasing three families of Zen 4-based Ryzen 7000 Series products, and among them is Phoenix, a set of lower-powered, next-generation APUs designed for thin and light gaming laptops. New rumors shared by Greymon55 suggest that the iGPU utilized in these Phoenix chips will be just as powerful as the 60-watt version of one of NVIDIA’s laptop GPUs, the GeForce RTX 3060, thanks to advancements that AMD has achieved with its new RDNA 3 graphics architecture. Gaming benchmarks for NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 3060 suggest that Phoenix APUs should be capable of delivering 1080p gaming at 60+ FPS under the ultra setting for many of today’s most popular titles, especially when accompanied with technologies such as FidelityFX Super Resolution.

The Phoenix APUs will operate in the 35 to 45W range, which probably means Ryzen 7000HS and 7000H series. This power is not just for the graphics, though, but also for the Zen4 cores and other integrated logic. That said, Greymon’s claims that integrated RDNA3 GPU could alone offer RTX 3060M at 60W (formerly referred to as Max-Q) performance would be big news for ‘light’ gaming.
