AMD Strix Halo APU Spotted, Featuring 120W TDP & 64GB RAM

Recently, a shipping manifest has been found containing AMD’s upcoming Strix Halo APU chips, and the listing has given us a hint on what the new super-APU’s specs may look like. In the image published by @harukaze5719 on X (Twitter), a list of items was shipped in the past few months containing both 32GB and 64GB variants of what looked like motherboards housing the chips.

Earlier leaks have noted that Strix Halo will feature a fairly wide range of cTDP to accommodate different laptop designs, which can be adjusted between 70W to 130W. The 120W version found here is likely the top-tier model, especially with its sizeable amounts of RAM packed alongside it. Most laptops today use 16GB of RAM, and even high-end ones rarely exceed 32GB – 64GB is only found in some workstation laptops or desktop replacement-class gaming laptops.

To recap, Strix Halo is expected to feature up to 16 Zen5 cores, with the onboard GPU featuring up to 40 CUs (compute units) based on RDNA3.5 architecture (with 32MB MALL cache), and a 60 TOPS NPU. All three processors will share the same pool of LPDDR5X-8000 RAM at 256-bit wide memory bus – which likely means it’ll adopt a similar design as the PS5/Xbox Series consoles with 8 DRAM chips connected to the silicon. Performance is expected to be competitive against discrete GPUs like NVIDIA RTX 4060 Laptop GPU.

Pokdepinion: This might be the most anticipated silicon of the year – let’s hope it’s a good one.
