The Ryzen 7000 will arrive by September

Through CEO Lisa Su, during a financial meeting AMD finally confirmed the launch in the coming months of 2022 of the new Ryzen 7000 processors, the new range based on Zen 4 and made through TSMC's 5nm production process. According to previous rumors, the initial lineup should consist of 4 models including the 16-core Ryzen 9 7950X and 7900X, the Ryzen 7 7800X and the Ryzen 5 7600X.

Although the CEO has not specified any particular date, however, it seems that the launch could take place in September together with the first examples of motherboards equipped with the new 600 series chipsets, such as the X670 and X670E, which should make up the initial launch lineup along with four other chipsets that are always part of the X series. The announcements, however, do not stop only at Ryzen 7000 processors, as we know the company is in fact also working to bring its new generation of RDNA 3 GPUs to the market. AMD reiterated that the new video cards will be launched within the end of the year, with the possibility that what happened with the RDNA 2 GPUs, launched a few months after the Zen 3 CPUs, will be repeated. aiming to increase performance while maintaining low power consumption by adopting an MCM (Multi Chip Module) design, in order to compete with Nvidia's RTX 4000 range.

There is no doubt that AMD is working hard to further grow its market shares, always positive in the last period, both in the segment PC that server, giving a hard time to rival Intel, from which Raptor Lake and Sapphire Rapids CPUs are expected.

AMD's Ryzen 7000 Desktop CPUs to Arrive Before the End of September

AMD’s next-generation Ryzen chips will arrive a little earlier this year. On Tuesday, CEO Lisa Su said the products will launch during this quarter, which ends on Sept. 30.

“Looking ahead, we’re on track to launch our all new Ryzen 7000 desktop processors and AM5 (motherboard) platform later this quarter with leadership performance in gaming and content creation,' Su said during an earnings call. 

That’s good news for any AMD fans eager to build a PC with the new chips. Previously, AMD only teased the new chips would arrive sometime in the fall. In contrast, the Zen 3 Ryzen 5000 series was officially introduced back in October 2020 and launched a month later. 

The Ryzen 7000 processors will feature several upgrades, including a new Zen 4 CPU architecture built using a 5-nanometer manufacturing process from TSMC. In addition, at least some of the chips will be able to run with clock speeds at over 5GHz.

Back in June, AMD said the Zen 4 architecture promises to offer an 8% to 10% improvement over the previous generation when it comes to instructions per clock. Company benchmarks also show that a 16-core Ryzen 7000 chip can score a 25% performance-per-watt improvement over AMD’s last-generation silicon.

However, the new Ryzen 7000 CPUs will need a new AM5 motherboard. AMD plans on showcasing(Opens in a new window) some of the motherboards on Thursday. So stay tuned for more details.

During the earnings call, AMD’s CEO said the company has been encountering a slowdown in PC demand due to the ongoing economic downturn. But she added: “We believe we are well positioned to navigate the current environment based on the strength of our existing product portfolio and upcoming product launches.”

The company is also planning on launching next-generation RDNA 3 graphics cards later this year. But in the meantime, AMD has been encountering sagging demand for desktop GPUs. AMD's CEO attributed it to “more supply versus demand,” and consumers pulling back on spending, in another indication that the GPU shortage is over, for now.
