AMD unveils Ryzen 7000 Series at Computex 2022

AMD confirms that the Ryzen 7000 series will launch this fall.

Unfortunately, there’s no SKU or release date for the Ryzen 7000 series, but AMD will bring its next-generation mainstream desktop series along with its X670E, X670, and B650 motherboards at Computex tomorrow.

AMD confirms that the Ryzen 7000 series will support the PCIe Gen5 standard in addition to DDR5 memory technology. The LGA1718 socket will maintain compatibility with AM4 coolers. Also, rumors about high-powered TDP SKUs have been confirmed. The AM5 next-generation socket will support up to 170 watts, but that wasn’t specifically mentioned for the Ryzen 7000.

In terms of performance, AMD claims that its Zen4 core architecture will offer a 15% increase in single threading (unfortunately, we don’t have the footnotes explaining what is being compared here), 2 times more L2 cache (1MB) per core and Max Boost at 5 gigahertz.

On top of that, AMD has finally revealed what’s under the new radiator. There are 5nm Zen4 cores and 6nm I/O cores. There is clearly no room for a third CCD, but there is no indication how this design will evolve in future generations.

AMD also confirms that the Zen4 desktop CPU will have integrated RDNA2 graphics. The new Ryzen 7000 series of desktop computers will be officially launched “this fall,” but that’s when.
