AMD Ryzen 7040 “Phoenix” Laptop CPUs is now delayed to April

AMD has officially delayed its Ryzen 7040 “Phoenix” Laptop CPUs by a month, with an April launch now planned. The AMD Ryzen 7040 “Phoenix” CPU lineup was originally scheduled to launch this month, but the company has confirmed in a statement provided to Anandtech that the first laptops will be delayed until April, meaning consumers who were looking forward to the new laptops will have to wait an extra month to get their hands on the latest Ryzen laptops.

The reason for the delay is said to align with the platform readiness and ensure the best possible user experience. It’s worth noting that the AMD Ryzen 7040 “Phoenix” CPUs recently had their specifications reduced, with GPU core clocks reduced by up to 200 MHz. The RDNA 3 GPU will be a major draw for users looking for a capable integrated graphics solution in a thin and light platform, but the reduced clocks will result in lower performance, which could be one of the reasons for the delay.

AMD Phoenix “Ryzen 7040” CPUs will use both Zen 4 and RDNA 3 cores.

The new Phoenix CPUs will support LPDDR5 and PCIe 5 and will be available in 35W to 45W SKUs. AMD has also stated that the laptop components may include memory technologies other than LPDDR5 and DDR5. The CPUs will be equipped with the most recent AMD XDNA AI engines.

AMD released three SKUs, the flagship being the Ryzen 9 7940HS. This chip has 8 cores, 16 threads, a base clock of 4.0 GHz, a boost clock of 5.2 GHz, a total cache of 40 MB, and an integrated RDNA 3 GPU with 12 Compute Units that operate at up to 2800 MHz. This is followed by the 7840HS, which has a similar core configuration but lower clock speeds of 3.8 GHz base and 5.1 GHz boost clocks. The Radeon 780M iGPU runs at 2700 MHz.
