Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) has confirmed the launch of its new Ryzen 7000 desktop chips.
The US-based semiconductor chip maker, during its Computex keynote, confirmed that the new Ryzen 7000 chips are launching this fall.
At Computex 2022, AMD unveiled the critical facets of its next-generation Ryzen 7000 desktop CPUs, AMD’s Zen 4 architecture, and a completely new motherboard for the first time in five years you’ll need to buy. While some of the chipmaker’s older AM4 motherboards can be updated to support its latest Ryzen 5000-series desktop CPUs, the new Ryzen 700 series CPUs require AM5 architecture.
AMD’s Ryzen 7000 are the first PC chips based on a 5nm process, and the latest AM5-platform of motherboards is designed to support DDR5 and PCIe 5.0 out of the box.
AMD also says the Ryzen 7000 chips will be able to boost to upwards of 5GHz, the first desktop chipsets from the manufacturer to do so. AMD displayed a 5.5GHz clock speed during its Computex presentation while playing Ghostwire: Tokyo. The Ryzen 7000 chipset matched the 5.5GHz turbo of Intel’s Core i9-12900KS.
The Zen 4 will have over 15% faster single-threaded performance than the Zen 3. The new Ryzen 700 chips will have higher power consumption: the new AM%-platform of motherboards can now provide the chips up to 170W of power, up from a reported 142W previously.
