AMD announced its Ryzen 7000 Series CPU, releasing on September 27th. The 7000 Series will include four CPU variations and utilize Zen 4 architecture.
The Zen 4 architecture will have twice the L2 cache of Zen 3 per core and up to 1MB per core. Furthermore, the series will feature up to 16 cores, 32 threads, boost clocks of up to 5.7GHz, and up to 80MB of cache. AMD claims that the 7000 series processors will be game-changing for consumers. Games are expected to be at least 21% faster on average with the new processors compared to their predecessors. These processors will also have integrated RDNA 2 graphics, the same graphical features found in the current 6000 series GPUs, PS5, and Xbox Series X|S.
The new chips will be built using TSMC 5nm technology and a new AM5 socket; AMD is saying goodbye to the AM4 socket, with the AM5 socket to support DDR5 exclusively. The AM5 socket will also support PCIe 5, with AMD planning to support the socket for multiple generations. Furthermore, the AM5 socket will continue to support coolers designed for the AM4 socket. Expect to see more information about the B650 and B650E very soon, as they are expected to launch in October.
The Ryzen 7000 Series lineup will feature a Ryzen 9 7950X, the flagship model, boasting 16 cores and 32 threads and boost clocks of up to 5.7GHz at $699. The Ryzen 9 7900 will come in at $549, the Ryzen 7 7700X at $399, and the Ryzen 5 7600 X at $299.
AMD also teased its upcoming GPU, expecting to launch later this year.
