The AM5 platform of AMD has already started its journey with the Ryzen 7000 CPU family. Based on the Zen 4 architecture, these AMD Ryzen chipsets prove not only to be highly capable but also offer great value. But the real question is, what about the APU side?
Well, documents regarding the new AM5 platform have been leaked. The platform gives us a hint at what is next for the AMD Ryzen series of CPUs. And it also suggests that the G-series APUs from the lineup might come with much more powerful iGPUs than ever before.

Nonetheless, the main highlight will be Radeon 700M models, which will debut with the AMD Ryzen 7040 Phoenix APUs. The upcoming iGPUs will be much faster and more powerful than the previous models. And the case will be the same for the Ryzen 6000G models.
Twitter user @9550pro, known as HXL, noticed a table leaked from Gigabyte. It shows three different processors in the AMD Ryzen AM5 platform. Although the table showcases the CPU core architecture, it also sheds light on the APUs. That is, the new series of APUs will finally come with RDNA 2 and RDNA 3 iGPUs instead of Vega.
But can the new iGPUs offer better performance? According to previous leaks, the AMD RDNA 3 iGPUs can match the performance of the Nvidia GTX 1650. And in case you didn’t know, the GTX 1650 is a great entry-level card. So, the new AMD Ryzen APUs are surely something you can look forward to if you plan to build a new PC anytime soon.
