AMD Unveils Zen 4-based Dragon CPUs For Mobile Gaming Dominance, AMD hosted a press conference following the release of its quarterly results this week to discuss its future CPU ambitions. The business released a revised CPU roadmap for 2023 after posting a record $5.9 billion in sales for the quarter.
Though we previously knew about its future Zen 4 “Raphael” CPUs, the company has introduced a new series of powerful mobile processors.
The AMD Dragon Range of mobile gaming CPUs, according to AMD, will have the largest “thread, core, and cache” numbers ever seen in a mobile gaming CPU. Clearly, the gauntlet has been thrown down, at least on paper.
These next chips will be built on the Zen 4 architecture, which comes as no surprise given the roadmap. After all, this is for 2023. They’ll be 55W+ processors built for desktop replacement laptops with a thickness of more than.78 inches. DDR5 memory and PCIe 5.0 will be included.
AMD claims that these processors have the most cache of any mobile CPU, which is noteworthy. We all assumed the business will give its Zen 4 CPUs more L3 cache than its RX 5800X3D processor. Now it looks that technology will most likely make its way into the world of mobile gaming, which would be a first.
AMD’s revelation that it will outnumber Intel in terms of “core and thread” count is also significant. Its current 6000-series mobile CPUs have a maximum clock speed of 8C/16T, which is lower than Intel’s 20-thread Core i9-12900HK. In this generation, AMD appears to prioritize efficiency above sheer performance. Perhaps it has changed its mind and will be going all-in with Dragon Range.
That’s exactly what it appears to be intending. AMD also unveiled the Phoenix processor family. These are designed for laptops that are thinner and lighter than 20mm (0.78′′). These are still gaming CPUs, despite being designed for compact smartphones. They’ll have the same advanced features as the Dragon Range, but in a 35W to 45W thermal envelope.

Though AMD’s PowerPoint doesn’t reveal much new information, such as clock rates, core counts, or cache sizes, it’s evident that Zen 4 will focus on gaming performance. Furthermore, these forthcoming AMD CPUs will compete against Raptor Lake mobile rather than Alder Lake mobile. We know very little about Raptor Lake thus far, and much less about the mobile version. The current 6000-series Zen 3+ processors from AMD are a refinement of Zen 3, and Raptor Lake mobile will most likely be the same for Alder Lake. This might provide AMD an advantage, same as how Intel now has the upper hand.
In conclusion, AMD’s Zen 4 desktop CPUs will be available in 2022, as previously stated. Though we’ve already reported on this, it’s excellent to have the corporation confirm it once more. This architecture will also run the corporation beyond 2023, competing with Intel’s Raptor Lake architecture. As of now, it appears that the fight against desktop chips will take place in late 2022, while the mobile gaming clash will take place in 2023. Finally, why is Dragon Range called that? So far, Intel has been the only corporation to use the term Dragon in its name. It has even used it in its latest Dragon Canyon NUC. Anyone up for a crossbow shot?
