AMD appears to have confirmed that it has its first Ryzen “Phoenix” processors with Xilinx AI acceleration engines running in its labs.
AMD confirms that Ryzen “Phoenix” CPUs powered by Xilinx’s AI engine are already working in its labs
In a tweet by a technical analyst David ShoreDuring the AI Hardware Summit, AMD’s head of the Adaptive and Embedded Computing Group confirmed that they are already running the next generation of client Ryzen CPUs in their labs and featuring Xilinx’s AI Acceleration Engine. Since Ryzen was mentioned, we can point out that these are the upcoming Phoenix Point CPUs that are confirmed to have an AI engine back at AMD. Financial Analyst Day 2022.

This also confirms that AMD has officially built the Phoenix Point CPU, and since it’s running in its labs, it will go through an extensive verification process before hitting mass production next year. AMD is expected to show its Phoenix Point CPUs for thin and light PC platforms at CES 2023 and will use The new brand naming structure recently detailed by the company. The Phoenix Point APUs will be part of the AMD Ryzen 7000 family.
AMD Phoenix Point “Ryzen 7040” Mobile CPUs
AMD confirmed Its Phoenix Point APU lineup will use both Zen 4 and RDNA 3 cores. Phoenix’s new APUs will carry LPDDR5 and PCIe 5 support and come in SKUs ranging from 35W to 45W. The range is also expected to launch in 2023 and most likely at CES 2023. AMD has also indicated that parts of the laptop may include memory technologies other than LPDDR5 and DDR5.
Based on the previous specs, it looks like Phoenix Ryzen 7000 APUs It may still hold up to 8 cores and 16 threads with higher core counts exclusively for Dragon Range chips. However, APUs in Phoenix will carry a higher CU count for RDNA 3 graphics cores, Boosting performance by a huge margin over anything the competition has to offer. The Phoenix Point APUs will also be the first AMD product to feature an AIE or AI engine that will speed up tasks for AI.
This engine will be based on the IP developed by Xilinx which is AMD Acquired for $35 billion in 2020. Will target Intel’s own AIE VPU “Versatile Processing Unit” It is also responsible for processing AI-based tasks and is expected to debut on 13th generation Raptor Lake CPUs followed by full integration on 14th generation Meteor Lake chips.
