AMD Quietly Launches Ryzen 7 8700F and Ryzen 5 8400F Processors

AMD has lately expanded its Ryzen 8000 collection by introducing the Ryzen 7 8700F and Ryzen 5 8400F processors. Initially launched in China, these chips have been added to AMD’s world web site, signaling they’re accessible worldwide, apparently from April 1st. Constructed from the current Zen 4-based Phoenix APUs utilizing the TSMC 4nm node as their Zen 4 cell chips, these new CPUs lack built-in graphics. Nevertheless, the Ryzen 7 8700F does embrace the built-in Ryzen AI NPU for added capabilities in a world at present dominated by AI and transferring it straight into the PC.

The corporate’s choice to announce these chips in China aligns with its technique to supply Ryzen options at each worth level out there. Though AMD did not initially disclose the total specs of those F-series fashions, and we did attain out to the corporate to ask about them, they refused to debate them with us. Their itemizing on the web site has now been up to date with a whole record of specs and options, with every little thing however the worth talked about.

The Ryzen 7 8700F options an 8C/16T design, with 16MB of L3 cache and the identical 65W TDP because the Ryzen 7 8700G. Though the bottom clock pace is 4.1 GHz, it boosts to five.0 GHz; this is 100 MHz much less on each base/increase clocks than the 8700G. In the meantime, the Ryzen 5 8400F is a barely scaled-down model of the Ryzen 8600G APU, with 6C/12, 16MB of L3 cache, and once more has a 100 MHz discount to base clocks in comparison with the 8600G. In contrast to the Ryzen 5 8400F, the Ryzen 7 8700F retains AMD’s Ryzen AI NPU, including further functionality for generative AI. 

The Ryzen 5 8400F can increase as much as 4.7 GHz, 300 MHz slower than the Ryzen 5 8600G. AMD additionally permits overclocking for these new F-series chips, which suggests customers may doubtlessly increase the efficiency of those processors to match their G-series equivalents.

Pricing particulars are nonetheless pending, however to stay aggressive, AMD will probably want to cost these CPUs beneath the 8700G and 8600G, in addition to the Ryzen 7 7700 and Ryzen 5 7600. These CPUs provide, albeit very restricted, built-in graphics and have double the L3 cache capability, together with increased increase clocks than the 8000F collection chips, so pricing is one thing to contemplate each time pricing turns into accessible.
