"AMD Dragon Range": Ryzen CPUs for extreme gaming laptops coming in 2023

AMD announces the processor series "Phoenix" and "Dragon Range". The latter is supposed to provide Ryzen 7000 processors for "extreme gaming laptops" starting in 2023. They will have a power consumption of at least 55 watts.

AMD has published a roadmap that promises new processors for gaming notebooks with unprecedented specifications. New Ryzen 7000 CPUs are supposed to reach the peak of gaming performance - the company affirms that it wants to offer the highest core and thread count as well as the largest cache ever.

Whether the new mobile CPUs under the codename "Dragon Range" are based on the desktop CPUs "Raphael" and thus simply have a throttled power consumption or TDP is not yet clear at the moment. Raphael will be launched in fall 2022, as has already been rumored and can be seen on the roadmap. The new spearhead in gaming laptops is supposed to be the Dragon Range processors. They are manufactured in the 5-nanometer process, have a TDP of at least 55 watts and rely on Zen 4 cores. They also support DDR5 SDRAM and PCI-Express 5.0.

At the same time, AMD launches "Phoenix" processors, which have a TDP range of 35 to 45 watts and rely on LPDDR5. They are intended for notebooks with a thickness of less than twenty millimeters. Whereas Dragon Range is meant to be used in devices twenty millimeters and thicker. Due to the power hunger, Dragon Range is aimed at customers who mostly run the laptop on the power supply - Phoenix makes sense for increased mobile use and probably features a Zen 4 design optimized for it.

If AMD's statement of the most cores and threads refers to the future competition - and not the already existing one - the new CPUs would have to have more than 16 cores, 24 threads and 30 megabytes of L3 cache. Because Intel's not yet officially announced mobile Core i9-12900HX is supposed to offer these leaked values soon.

I find my muse in everything. When I don’t, I draw inspiration from daydreaming. After all, if you dream, you don’t sleep through life.
