AMD Ryzen 8000 F-series processors

The Ryzen 8000 F-series processors are built on AMD’s Phoenix APU silicon, manufactured using TSMC’s 4nm technology.

They feature Zen 4 execution cores but do not include integrated RDNA 3 graphics, unlike their G-series counterparts. To use the Ryzen 7 8700F and Ryzen 5 8400F, you’ll need a separate graphics card.

Additionally, one of the models, the Ryzen 7 8700F, does not include the Ryzen AI NPU, while the Ryzen 5 8400F does. The Ryzen 7 8700F offers 16 TOPS of AI performance when paired with AMD Radeon 7000 series Graphics Cards, says the company.

The core and cache configurations for the Ryzen 8000 F-series remain unchanged from the G-series models. The Ryzen 7 8700F features an octa-core, 16-thread configuration with 16MB of L3 cache, while the Ryzen 5 8400F has a hexa-core, 16-thread layout with the same cache size.

The Ryzen 7 8700F operates at a base clock of 4.1 GHz with a boost clock of 5.0 GHz, while the Ryzen 5 8400F runs at a base clock of 4.2 GHz with a boost clock of 4.7 GHz. Both processors are rated at 65W and come with AMD’s Wraith Stealth CPU cooler.
