AMD announced "Zen 4" with Ryzen 7000 series, RDNA3 teased

By - | Views: 20,625

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.

I think AMD were working with Samsung on that, but so far yeah, they are pretty dependent on TSMC.

Quoting: jarhead_hGuys, it's VERY likely that the CCP launches an invasion of RoC(Taiwan) very soon

Anything can happen, but I doubt it. They are dealing with all kind of economic problems now. Outright war will ruin them. Unless they downgrade to Putin level of cretinism, they won't do it. But then again, who knows.

I bet that this will not happen (in either time frame).

Relax... Both side won't and never want going to war. Come on, both sides are too busy counting money profiting each other. No one wants to wish anything bad to their business partner.

EXCEPT, if some "outsiders" who want to incite them for those "outsiders" profit.

I think the same. (...though I thought similar for Russia. But yes, there's huge differences.)

No outsider can make China go on war. If they do it, it's on them and nobody else.
