He then pointed out that the new Ryzen 7000 Series desktop processors integrate the company’s Zen 4 architecture and would improve the processor’s single-core performance. 15 percent compared to the previous desktop generation, the Ryzen 5000.
He also indicated that these new processors would be the first in the industry to use the 5-nanometer (nm) manufacturing process, which until now has only been used in mobile devices. This reads allows to offer up to 15 percent higher performance than other brands.
He also pointed out that these chips would have integrated RDNA 2 graphics with a new 6nm I/O chip, as well as support for DDR5 and PCI Express (PCIe) 5.0 for up to four monitors.
Now, AMD has released more details about this new series of processors, equipped with up to 16 cores and 32 threads in its most advanced version, AMD Ryzen 9 7950X, and that offer a double-digit increase in IPC compared to the previous generation.
This series is made up of different models and all of them will be available from next September 27. The simplest is AMD Ryzen 5 7600X, with 6 cores and 12 threads, 105W, a 38MB cache, turbo up to 5.3GHz and a base frequency of 4.7GHz. Your starting price will be $299 (298.35 euros at the current exchange rate).
It is followed by AMD Ryzen 7 7700X, with 8 cores, 16 threads, 5.4GHz power and 4.5GHz frequency and 40MB total cache, as well as 105W TDP. The recommended price of this product is $399 (398.13 euros).
Next up is AMD Ryzen 9 7900X, equipped with 12 cores and 24 threads, with 45MB cache, 170W TDP, which goes up to 5.6GHz boost and 4.7GHz base frequency and will cost $549 (547.80 euros).
The most advanced version features a boost power of up to 5.7GHz and a base frequency of 4.5GHz, as well as a TDP of 170W. will be sold for $699 (697.47 euros).
PLATFORM SOCKET AM5
Along with these processors, AMD has introduced the new Socket AM5 platform, which offers cutting-edge connectivity features such as dual-channel DDR5 memory.
This platform supports DDR memory and also includes up to 24 PCIe 5.0 lanes, making it a the most expansive desktop platform from AMD filed to date.
The new family of AMD Socket AM5 motherboards features four varieties: AMD X670 Extreme-with greater connectivity and capabilities of ‘overlocking’-, AMD X670, AMD B650W Y AMD B650.
All of them will be available in the coming months: AMD X670 and X670 Extreme from September from $125 (also 125 euros), while the AMD B650E and B650 chipsets will be in October.
Finally, the brand has offered the first public demonstration of the next generation AMD Radeon RX graphics cards, powered by the new AMD RDNA 3 architecture, whose launch is expected by the end of this year.
