AMD will introduce Zen5-based "Strix" processors with new FP8 and FP11 sockets

AMD is preparing to release new Strix series processors based on the Zen5 architecture, which will use two different sockets. The smaller processor, Strix Point, will use the FP8 socket, while the more powerful Strix Halo will use the FP11 socket.

Recent leaks have revealed that the FP11 socket measures 37,5x45mm, which is similar to the LGA-1700 socket used in Intel's Alder Lake and Raptor Lake processors. The next generation of AMD APUs with Zen5 cores and RDNA 3.5 graphics will have an area almost the same as the AM5 or FL1 socket for the Dragon Range - about 1600 mm².

This FP11 socket size information appeared in shipping documents.

Currently, the FP8 socket used in the latest Phoenix series APUs measures 25x40mm. This means the new FP11 socket, known as "Halo", will be at least 60% larger. The FP8 socket is also used in the Ryzen 8000 "Hawk Point" processors and will be used in the Ryzen AI 300 "Strix Point" series, which is the little brother of the Halo.

AMD is preparing several new products based on Zen5. The Strix Point APUs, which will be released later this month, will offer up to 12 Zen5 cores and 12 RDNA 3.5 compute units. At the same time, Halo APUs will have 16 Zen5 cores and up to 40 RDNA 3.5 compute units. The increased socket size is mainly due to the larger integrated GPU.
