At the Beijing Innovation Summit, AMD introduced the new Ryzen Hawk Point 8040 series processors and shared plans for Strix Point chips.

AMD CEO Lisa Su spoke in detail about the 8040 series Ryzen Hawk Point processors and then moved on to a Next-Gen AMD Ryzen project called Strix Point.

David Wong, AMD Senior Vice President of GPU Development, spoke in more detail about Strix Point processors, which will combine Zen 5, RDNA 3+, and XDNA 2 architectures, and focused on the latter two technologies. In particular, he clarified that RDNA 3+ is the official name for a series of video processors, which is commonly referred to as RDNA 3.5 or GFX115X. The fact that the version number of the processors has not been changed suggests that the familiar RDNA 3 architecture will not undergo any drastic changes.

In addition to RDNA 3+, the next generation of AMD Ryzen products (including Strix Point) will receive an updated NPU architecture - XDNA 2. Compared to the previous generation XDNA, XDNA 2 will offer a threefold increase in performance.

AMD Strix Point production will begin this year and will culminate in the release of processors by the end of the year. When the processors go on sale, they will be met by niche competitors such as Intel Arrow Lake and Lunar Lake, which have received their improvements with the help of artificial intelligence.
