AMD’s next range of desktop processors will be called the Ryzen 7000 Series. We know that it will be built upon the new Zen 4 CPU architecture, which should improve the overall performance.
AMD claims the new Ryzen 7000 chips will offer a 15% uplift in single-thread performance compared to the preceding generation. AMD also demoed a 16-core Ryzen 7000 processor that hit 5.5GHz, which is a first for the company.
We’ve rounded up all the facts and key details on the AMD Ryzen 7000 series of desktop processors. Keep reading on to find out everything you need to know.
AMD plans to launch Ryzen 7000 processors in Quarter 4 2022. Unfortunately, it hasn’t provided a more specific release date just yet.
The previous Ryzen 5000 generation was unveiled in October 2020 and was available to buy in November of the same year. It is possible that we will see a similar release date for the latest generation.
However, DigiTimes has claimed that AMD has set a release date of mid-September so it could arrive within the next few months.
AMD has been tight-lipped about the pricing of its next-generation processors, so we can’t predict how much the Ryzen 7000 series will cost.
The company does tend to try and keep some consistency with the price though, so it may try and keep the latest generation as affordable as possible. The Ryzen 9 5950X came out at S$1,249, the Ryzen 9 5900X at S$849, the Ryzen 7 5800X at S$699 and the Ryzen 5 5600X at S$459, for some context.
AMD has confirmed that Ryzen 7000 desktop processor will be based on the new 5nm Zen 4 architecture, rather than the 7nm node found on previous processors. A smaller node means more transistors, which should ensure a faster performance. Zen 4 should provide a 15% improvement to the single-threaded performance when compared to Zen 3.
The AMD Ryzen 7000 range will top out at 16 cores and 32 threads, while a live stream by PCWorld showed an upcoming chip reaching up to 5.5GHz frequency speeds during a playthrough of Ghostwhire: Tokyo.
5.5GHz is the highest frequency speed we have seen from an AMD processor, suggesting the flagship chip will stand head and shoulders above its predecessor. However, it’s not quite fast enough to leapfrog Intel, with the upcoming Raptor Lake processors tipped to see a max frequency speed of 6GHz.
There will also be support for DDR5 RAM and PCle 5.0, ensuring that AMD’s chips will be support cutting-edge components for the foreseeable future, while remaining competitive with Intel. There will not be backwards compatibility for DDR4.
We expect that the desktop chips will feature a Navi 2 integrated GPU. This should provide a welcome boost for those who want to game without a discrete GPU, although we expect most people will want to pair the Ryzen 7000 processors with a high-end graphic card.
