Despite the fact that Intel is still producing its processors in the 14nm process, and we have to wait a long time for the next generation of AMD Ryzen processors, there are many reports on the network about future generations of desktop systems. While in Intel’s case the roadmap looks crystal clear and focused on the revolutionary Alder Lakes, in the case of the Red chips we’re getting more and more leaks. Finally, we just described the new AMD AM5 socket for Raphael (Zen 4) processors to begin appearing at the end of 2022, while the first information on their successors has surfaced unexpectedly. What can we actually say about the Ryzen 8000?
The leaks were shared by two leakers, which means their information may be based on the same roadmap that the manufacturer may have revealed to some people at the same time. So we have reason to assume that the news around Granite Ridge and APU Strix Point has not been sucked at the finger.
AMD AM5 platform with LGA1718 socket will support DDR5 memory and up to 28 PCIe 4.0 slots and CPUs with TDP up to 170W
The latest leak indicates that AMD Ryzen 8000 desktop processors will be known by the codename Granite Ridge. It will be based on the Zen 5 architecture and most likely it will be manufactured in a 3nm process. Moreover, APUs, i.e. processors with an integrated graphics chip, must be called Strix Point. The source reports that it will be based on TSMC N3 production node and will consist of chips belonging to Zen 5 and Zen 4D architecture. As you can see below, the details have been hidden, so it’s hard for us to say more about Ryzens at the moment.
Point Strix adopts the hybrid architecture of zen5 + zen4 and introduces new cache. The desktop version does not know if this mode will be adopted, but it is certain that the same 3nm will be used.

ASUS is preparing new motherboards for AMD Ryzen processors. I’m talking about the updated X570 passive cooling pads
It should be noted, however, that the aforementioned leaks were shared by two of the leakers, which means that their information may be based on the same roadmap that the manufacturer can disclose to some people at the same time. So we have reason to assume that the news around Granite Ridge and APU Strix Point has not been sucked at the finger. Of course, it is too early to expect any more news about her in a short time. Finally, on the way, we have the more obscure Ryzen 6000 series (Warhol), and then only the Ryzen 7000 (Raphael) – so we’ll focus on these in the coming weeks / months.
