AMD Ryzen 7000 “Zen 4” CPUs & AM5 Platform Pushed Back To 27th September, The Same Day As Intel’s 13th Gen Raptor Lake Unveil
Earlier this month, we reported that AMD was going to host an occasion in late August the place they are going to announce all the main points equivalent to specs and costs for his or her next-gen Ryzen 7000 “Zen 4” CPUs and the respective AM5 platform. The firm had additionally deliberate to open up gross sales simply two weeks in a while the fifteenth of September. But it appears like AMD has determined to halt the gross sales a bit and place the actual launch subsequent to Intel’s 13th Gen Raptor Lake CPUs on the 27th of September.
Intel is anticipated to host its “Innovation” occasion on the 27th of September the place the corporate will unveil its newest desktop processors codenamed Raptor Lake. The CPUs will not be accessible till October nonetheless, AMD’s Ryzen 7000 CPUs shall be prepared for the mass client market. This could look like AMD being very assured to launch their chips proper when their competitor proclaims their next-gen elements. At the identical time, on-line retailers have began itemizing down a number of AMD Ryzen 7000 CPUs together with preliminary costs such because the:
- Ryzen 9 7950X (16 Core / 32 Thread)
- Ryzen 9 7900X (12 Core / 24 Thread)
- Ryzen 7 7700X (8 Core / 16 Thread)
- Ryzen 5 7600X (6 Core / 12 Thread)
AMD’s first wave of 600-series motherboards would concentrate on the higher-end X670E & X670 designs adopted by B650E & B650 merchandise a number of weeks later (round October/November). The new CPUs will function a model new Zen 4 core structure which is anticipated to ship as much as 8% IPC, >15% ST (Single-Threaded), and >35% MT (Multi-Threaded) efficiency enchancment over the Zen 3 cores.
Additionally, AMD goes bonkers with the clock speeds on their next-gen CPUs with as much as 5.7 GHz increase clocks, 170W TDPs and 230W PPT. Plus, the platform itself shall be outfitted with the newest applied sciences equivalent to PCIe Gen 5.0 slots, Gen 5.0 M.2 assist, DDR5 reminiscence assist (EXPO), and a brand new SAS (Smart Access Storage) Firmware suite that runs on the DirectStorage API framework.
