AMD claims that the next Ryzen series, based on the new Zen 4 architecture, would provide a 15% increase in single-thread performance compared to the previous generation. And AMD has previously shown off a 16-core Ryzen 7000 CPU running at 5.5GHz in demos. However, a first for the firm, it falls short of the rumored 6GHz maximum turbo frequency speed of the forthcoming Intel Raptor Lake CPUs.
What is the Release Date?
On August 29, 2022, AMD will conduct a Livestream event to introduce its next AMD Ryzen CPUs built on the Zen 4 architecture.
The event will be broadcast live on AMD’s YouTube page, with a recording made accessible on the company’s website afterward. When the clock strikes 7 o’clock, the festivities will begin.
What’s the speculated Price?
AMD has remained mum when asked about the cost of its next-generation chips. Nonetheless, the following pricing for the forthcoming CPUs has been reportedly disclosed by a Canadian shop (discovered by @momomo us):
The Price of an AMD Ryzen 9 7950X in Canada is $1140.99 ($882.60)
Cost of an AMD Ryzen 9 7900X is $777.99 CAD ($601.80 USD).
The AMD Ryzen 7 7700X costs $613.99 CAD ($488.87 USD).
Pricing for the AMD Ryzen 5 7600X: CAD 423.99 (USD 327.97)
If true, the most recent AMD CPUs could be more expensive than their predecessors. Naturally, there is no way to confirm the integrity of these rumored costs. For the most part, AMD doesn’t reveal pricing information until the product’s official unveiling. In any case, we should know soon enough.
Some New Specifications are on the way.
According to AMD, the Ryzen 7000 desktop CPU will use the new 5nm Zen 4 architecture rather than the 7nm node in earlier processors. Smaller nodes allow for more transistors, which should lead to improved performance.
AMD asserts that Zen 4 will boost single-threaded performance by up to 15% compared to Zen 3. As a result, this has the potential to enhance game performance significantly. PCWorld streamed a future CPU hitting up to 5.5GHz clock rates during a Ghost Recon: Tokyo session, and the AMD Ryzen 7000 series will max out at 16 cores and 32 threads.
Some more details about Hardware and RAM
At 5.5GHz, the flagship CPU from AMD is expected to be far faster than its predecessors. Unfortunately, the future Raptor Lake chips are expected to have a maximum frequency speed of 6GHz. Thus it won’t be fast enough to overtake Intel.
Also, DDR5 RAM and PCle 5.0 will be supported, guaranteeing that AMD’s processors will be compatible with the latest and greatest hardware for the foreseeable future and keeping them competitive with Intel. DDR4 will not provide compatibility with older memory technologies.
