AMD has revealed their next-generation Zen 4 processors with the Ryzen 7000 series that will be launching September 27.
They're saying it will give a "double-digit" IPC (instructions per cycle/clock) uplift compared to the previous generation. AMD are also claiming they will be a lot more efficient than before, leveraging the power management tech from their mobile processors.
Here's the models they've announced for now:
|Model||Cores/Threads||Boost / Base Frequency||Total Cache||PCIe||TDP||Price|
|AMD Ryzen 9 7950X||16C/32T||Up to 5.7 / 4.5 GHZ||80MB||Gen 5||170W||$699|
|AMD Ryzen 9 7900X||12C/24T||Up to 5.6 / 4.7 GHZ||76MB||Gen 5||170W||$549|
|AMD Ryzen 7 7700X||8C/16T||Up to 5.4 / 4.5 GHZ||40MB||Gen 5||105W||$399|
|AMD Ryzen 5 7600X||6C/12T||Up to 5.3 / 4.7 GHZ||38MB||Gen 5||105W||$299|
This also comes with the new AM5 platform with dual-channel DD5 memory support, up to 24 PCIe 5.0 lanes and they say AM5 will be supported through to 2025. So you're going to be good for the next few generations of AMD processors with AM5. Installation they said will be easier than before with the 1718 pin LGA socket, it supports AM4 coolers too.
These are the chipsets that will be offered:
- AMD X670 Extreme: Bringing the most connectivity and extreme overclocking capabilities with PCIe 5.0 support for graphics and storage.
- AMD X670: Supporting enthusiast overclocking with PCIe® 5.0 support for storage and optional graphics support.
- AMD B650E: Designed for performance users with PCIe® 5.0 storage support and optional graphics support.
- AMD B650: Designed for mainstream users with support for DDR5 memory and optional PCIe® 5.0 support.
AMD X670 and X670E will be available in September but the B650E and B650 set land in October.
We also got a brief teaser of their next-generation GPUs with RDNA3 as well. During the event AMD CEO Dr. Lisa Su mentioned it uses 5nm chiplets, to provide a "more than 50%" performance per watt uplift compared to RDNA2.
