Ryzen 7 8700F and Ryzen 5 8400F will be available in Retail Box globally

Recently, AMD introduced the Ryzen 7 8700F and Ryzen 5 8400F processors. The ‘F’ suffix indicates that these are derivatives of the Ryzen 8000G series without integrated graphics, built on the Hawk Point chip and employing the Zen 4 core architecture.

There have been recent disclosures by enthusiasts that AMD plans to revise the marketing strategy for the Ryzen 7 8700F and Ryzen 5 8400F, aiming to launch them as boxed retail versions globally, although the specific timeline for this change remains unclear. Currently, the official OPN codes (100-100001590BOX for the Ryzen 7 8700F and 100-100001591BOX for the Ryzen 5 8400F) can be found on AMD’s official website, suggesting that this plan is at least under consideration.

The Ryzen 7 8700F, essentially a Ryzen 7 8700G without integrated graphics, maintains an eight-core, sixteen-thread configuration, with 8MB of L2 cache and 16MB of L3 cache. Its core frequency has been slightly reduced from 4.2–5.1GHz to 4.1–5.0GHz, yet it retains the Neural Processing Unit and supports Ryzen AI. The Ryzen 5 8400F, evolved from the Ryzen 5 8600G, features six cores and twelve threads, with 6MB of L2 cache and 16MB of L3 cache, and a core frequency of 4.2–4.7GHz, notably lower than the 4.3–5.0GHz of the Ryzen 5 8600G, and also lacks the Neural Processing Unit.
