AMD is planning to launch new processors in the near future, with the Ryzen 7 8700F and Ryzen 5 8400F. The program includes 8- and 6-core models. According to the leaked slides, AMD is positioning its processors against the Core i5 14400F and 13400F.

With these two processors, the company is expected to launch references based on a Phoenix 2 chip. All of these would be monolithic chips – no multi-dies here. However, the latter will not have their integrated graphics part, as it is deactivated… Hence the suffix F, as with Intel.

As for configurations, the 8700F is the larger of the two models. It boasts a total of eight cores with hyperthreading, compared with six HT cores (two Zen4 and four Zen4C energy-saving cores) for the 8400F. As for frequencies, the 8700F and 8400F boast 5.00 GHz and 4.7 GHz respectively. Finally, in terms of caches, they each record 24 MB and 22 MB.

Here, the controlled TDP of 65W means that these references will arrive with a radbox, a Wraith Stealth in both cases.

Here, the 8700F benefits from a little special feature that the 8400F doesn’t have: an XDNA NPU. Its purpose is to accelerate tasks linked to artificial intelligence. Nevertheless, don’t expect a thunderbolt in the field, with its 16 AI TOPS. As a reminder, 40 TOPS would be required to properly run AI Copilot functions on our future PCs. That’s according to TrendForce.

As for performance, AMD positions its new CPUs against the Core i5 14400F and 13400F. According to the graphics shared by the company, the gamble seems to have paid off. We’ll have to wait and see what happens in real-life tests.

Via VideoCardz, we learn that the launch is scheduled for today. Supposed prices are in the region of $299 for the 8700F and $189 for the 8400F, all on the AM5 platform.
