New AM5 firmware is rolling out for Zen 4 desktop APUs

from Sven Beaudoin
AMD has begun supplying its partners with the latest AGESA firmware, which is based on the new SMU v76.72.0 to provide support for the Ryzen 7000G (“Phoenix”) Zen 4 series desktop APUs. Taiwanese manufacturer Asrock is now giving the starting signal with the X670E Taichi Carrara.

Like the Twitter user known for such advance posts @9550pro It has now been announced via SMS that the Ryzen 7000G (“Phoenix”) series is expected to be delivered in due course.

AGESA ComboAM5PI is said to support Ryzen 7000G

AMD AGESA ComboAM5PI, the full name of the upcoming firmware for the AM5 platform and LGA1718 socket, will also for the first time support Ryzen 7000G (“Phoenix”), which is scheduled to be released this year. This means that Phoenix APUs will be included as the second processor family alongside Raphael CPUs in the new firmware for AM5 600 chipset motherboards. The first updates with the SMU (“System Management Unit”) under build number 76.72.0 are coming from Asrock for the X670E.

Unlike the popular Ryzen 7000 series Raphael CPUs, which offer up to 16 Zen 4 processor cores and a rudimentary RDNA 3 GPU with only two compute units and are limited to a TDP of up to 170W, the Ryzen 7000G series desktop APUs are equipped with 8 Zen 4 cores and Radeon 780M or Radeon 760M and delivers a relatively low cTDP of 35 to 65W. Phoenix APUs use TSMC’s 4nm manufacturing process and offer an AI engine.

The Ryzen 7000G is scheduled to appear on the desktop in 2023

Aside from the regular and hybrid Ryzen 7040U, which is mainly intended for mobile devices such as netbooks and laptops, the Ryzen 7000G based on Zen 4 and RDNA 3 for desktop with AM5 socket is also scheduled to appear in 2023. AMD has already confirmed this as part of a MAP The official way to desktop.

SMU 76.72.0 included in the new AGESA firmware supports both AMD’s Phoenix APUs and hybrid Phoenix2 APUs, which combine Zen 4 and Zen 4c in a single package. Accordingly, hybrid APUs will likely also be available in desktops, which have already celebrated their debut in laptops like the Ryzen 5 7545U and Ryzen 3 7440U. The next generation Strix Point APUs will also combine Zen 5 and Zen 5c.
