AMD is working on a tiny APU called the Phoenix 2

The code in the AMD driver patch hints that the Phoenix and Dragon Range series APUs will be equipped with the new RDNA 3 GPU. These two new processors are expected to be unveiled at CES 2023. The source @Kepler broke the news that AMD is developing a small APU called Phoenix 2. Its GFX ID is 1104, a miniature version of Phoenix.

Whistleblower @MLID has also mentioned a Little Phoenix product with similar specifications before, but this is an "ultra-low power consumption and compact" chip for Steam Deck handhelds. This is possible with the same series of products.

Simply put, the AMD Phoenix series of APUs is the Ryzen 7040 series, which focuses on mid-range notebooks, based on the latest Zen 4 architecture, with power consumption between 35 and 45W; and the higher power consumption Dragon Range series (Ryzen 7045 series) It is suitable for gaming notebooks and enthusiast-level high-end notebook computers.

Judging from AMD's recently uploaded Linux patch, the new generation of the APU series will support GFX1103, and AMD Dragon Range APU will also support DDR5 memory.

It is speculated that the new Phoenix APU series will feature GPUs based on the RDNA 3 architecture. Coelacanth's Dream says that the current GC 11.0.4 (Dragon Range) took a similar path to GC 11.0.1 (Phoenix), which is the same as the GFX1103 GPU.
