During Computex 2022, AMD officially announced its next-generation CPUs, the AMD Ryzen 7000 CPU series. These new CPUs will release in Fall 2022 and promise to offer a substantial performance increase over the previous Ryzen CPUs.
Here are the key features of the AMD Ryzen 7000 CPUs:
- Up To 16 Zen 4 Cores and 32 Threads
- Over 15% Performance Uplift In Single-Threaded Apps
- Brand New Zen 4 CPU Cores (IPC / Architectural Improvements)
- Brand New TSMC 5nm process node with 6nm IOD
- Support on AM5 Platform With LGA1718 Socket
- Dual-Channel DDR5 Memory Support
- 28 PCIe Lanes (CPU Exclusive)
- 105-120W TDPs (Upper Bound Range ~170W)
Going into more details, these new CPUs will be the first using TSMC’s 5nm process node with 6nm IOD. AMD also claims that the Zen 4 architecture packs IPC and architectural improvements. As such, PC gamers can expect over a 15% performance boost In single-threaded games.
Additionally, AMD aims to release CPU models that will feature up to 16 Zen 4 cores and 32 threads. Contrary to Intel, AMD will not be offering “Performance” and “Efficient” cores. Instead, the red team will be offering typical/normal CPU cores. This is great news as AMD will not be following Intel’s “notebook” approach.
Lastly, AMD showcased a Ryzen 7000 CPU, featuring 16 cores, running Ghostwire Tokyo. During this gameplay segment, the brand new CPU was running above 5Ghz at all times. Unfortunately, though, AMD did not provide any framerate numbers.
As said, AMD plans to release these new CPUs this Fall.
