Through a recent presentation in China, AMD has confirmed the launch of its next-generation Ryzen 7000 desktop CPUs and AM5 motherboards. The presentation includes a slide that shows market availability for the new processors on September 15, which corresponds to the previously announced Fall 2022 launch date.
AMD’s Ryzen 7000 processors, as previously stated, will be based on the company’s new Zen 4 architecture, which is expected to boost IPC by 8-10%. These chips are manufactured on TSMC’s 5nm process and will employ the same chip let design as before, but with a higher core count.
The maximum core count will remain at 16 cores and 32 threads, but clock speeds will be significantly increased. According to reports, these processors will have frequencies of up to 5.85GHz. The TDP will vary from 65 to 170W (170W Max TDP / 230W Max PPT).
AMD claims that Ryzen 7000 desktop CPUs with Zen 4 cores will outperform Zen 3 by 15% in single-threaded performance. The processors will also include an RDNA 2 iGPU that can be accessed via HDMI 2.1. For the first time on an AMD CPU-powered platform, the new platform will support DDR5 memory as well as PCIe Gen 5.0.
AM5 motherboards will be available on the same day as Ryzen 7000 CPUs. The specifications are shown in the image below.
