AMD is set to release its new AM5 firmware AGESA ComboAM5PI 184.108.40.206 next month, which will include support for the Ryzen 7000G Zen 4 series desktop APU for the first time. For the first time, Phoenix is supported by an RDNA-3 iGPU.
Like a Twitter user known for such pre-releases chi11eddog Now announced via SMS, AMD will be releasing new AM5 AGESA ComboAM5PI firmware in version 220.127.116.11 next month and will also support Phoenix APUs with RDNA-3 iGPU.
AGESA ComboAM5PI 18.104.22.168 reportedly supports Ryzen 7000G
AMD AGESA ComboAM5PI 22.214.171.124, the full name of the upcoming firmware for the AM5 platform and LGA1718 socket, is intended to support the Ryzen 7000G (“Phoenix”) planned for this year for the first time. This means that the Phoenix APUs will be the second processor family besides the Raphael CPUs in the new firmware for AM5 motherboards with the 600 chipset.
Unlike the popular Raphael CPUs in the Ryzen 7000 series, which offer up to a total of 16 Zen 4 processor cores and a rudimentary RDNA 3 graphics unit with only two compute units and are limited to a TDP of up to 170W, the Ryzen 7000G series desktop APUs are equipped with With 8 Zen 4 cores and a Radeon 780M or Radeon 760M, it offers a cTDP of 35 to a relatively low 65W. Phoenix APUs use TSMC’s 4nm manufacturing process and feature an AI engine.
The Ryzen 7000G is expected to appear in the desktop in late 2023
Apart from the regular and hybrid Ryzen 7040U, mainly intended for mobile devices such as netbooks and netbooks, the Ryzen 7000G based on Zen 4 and RDNA 3 should also appear in 2023 for desktops with an AM5 socket. AMD has already confirmed this in its official desktop roadmap.
According to the current state of knowledge, desktop APUs based on Zen 4 and RDNA 3 or Navi 3x should be officially released between the end of August and the middle of September. However, AMD itself has yet to comment on a possible date, which is why this is by no means specified. However, the release of AGESA 126.96.36.199 confirms these assumptions.
