The AMD Ryzen 7040 series processors, codenamed Phoenix, will be released at the end of this month/early next month, according to @goldenpigupgrade.com, which is expected to be available at the end of April for notebooks with the Ryzen 7040HS and early next month for models with the 7840U processor.
AMD Phoenix is a new generation of APUs with Zen4 and RDNA3 architecture for laptops, designed to succeed the Ryzen 6000 series codenamed Rembrandt.
In fact, AMD first came up with this series of processors at CES in early January and initially announced the availability of the Raptor 7045HX series in February and the Raptor 7040HS series in March, but the Raptor 7045HX gaming notebooks were delayed until the end of March and only one ROG Magic Fighter 7 Plus series was available. In contrast, Intel Raptor Lake-powered laptops have been available for 2 months now.
It’s worth mentioning that AMD originally replaced the H series with the HS series this generation, but also customized the Ryzen 7040H series for the Chinese mainland market, with the exact same specifications as the Ryzen 7040HS series.
