AMD is allegedly testing a hybrid processor with Zen 4 and 4c cores

An unannounced AMD processor identified as Family 25 Model 120 Step 0 recently appeared in the MilkyWay@Home database. A CPU can handle 12 threads at a time, and a CPU expert @InstLatX64 is believed to be AMD’s codenamed Phoenix 2 processor, which features two high-performance Zen 4 cores and four energy-efficient Zen 4c cores.

AMD Eng Sample Processor with Marking 100-000000931-21_N [Family 25 Model 120 Stepping 0] contains 12 logical cores (ie six physical cores with simultaneous multi-threading) and reports about 1MB of cache, indicating that the MilkyWay@Home client cannot correctly determine the amount of cache presented by the chip. The hint itself doesn’t prove that we’re dealing with AMD’s hybrid Phoenix 2 processor with a Big.Little-like core configuration, but the six physical/12 logical cores represented by an unknown processor suggest that it could match to the news.
