In fact, AMD’s plan to launch Raphael processors on mobile platforms is not without a trace. About a year and a half ago, there was a leak that AMD would release a Raphael-based processor in the range of 35W to 65W TDP. Taking into account AMD’s product timetable, Raphael-H should be released with Phoenix from the end of 2022 to early 2023. At that time, Raphael-H may face Intel products based on Raptor Lake-S.
AMD Ryzen 7000 series may launch 16-core mobile processors, Raphael-H based on Zen 4 architecture
There has been news that AMD will release the Zen 3+ architecture APU code-named Rembrandt early next year. It is rumored that it has been mass-produced and will replace the current Cezanne. There are six products in the first batch.
It is said to belong to the Ryzen 6000 series. It will be equipped with a core of the RDNA 2 architecture to replace the Vega architecture that has been used for a long time. At the same time, it will support PCIe Gen4 and DDR5 memory. It is manufactured with a 6nm process and replaced with an FP7 socket. Although Rembrandt has not yet been released, news about its next-generation Ryzen 7000 series mobile processors is already circulating.
According to Twitter user @NNNiceMing, AMD Ryzen 7000 series mobile processors will not only launch the APU code-named Phoenix, but also a high-performance mobile processor, possibly code-named Raphael-H. In AMD’s planning roadmap, Raphael is the codename of the Ryzen 7000 series desktop processors, based on the Zen 4 architecture, using a new generation of AM5 sockets, supporting DDR5 memory, it should support PCIe Gen5, and be equipped with RDNA 2 architecture core. Raphael-H means that AMD plans to bring desktop processors to high-performance mobile platforms. This move is likely to be a countermeasure against Intel.
In the plan of Intel’s new generation mobile platform, Alder Lake-P covers the product range from 12W to 45W, Alder Lake-M covers the range from 7W to 15W, and the TDP is between 45W and 55W. There will be an H55 based Alder Lake-S chips that will be configured with up to 8 P-Core (Golden Cove) and 8 E-Core (Gracemont). This is Intel’s most powerful product on mobile platforms, and AMD’s Raphael-H is similar.
