DigiTimes has shared a new report that suggests AMD might be rolling out its next-generation processors earlier than anticipated. According to the Taiwanese publication’s pay-walled story, red team could be launching its Ryzen 7000 Series processors as early as September, allowing enthusiasts to get their hands on the world’s first Zen 4-based CPUs built on a 5-nanometer process for desktops in just a few months. These will be accompanied by the brand-new AM5 platform, which promises a handful of exciting features that include support for PCIe 5.0 and DDR5 memory. Users will also find a new socket in the form of the LGA1718.
We also managed to get some new details regarding the AMD AM5 platform which will consist of the new LGA 1718 socketed motherboards. It looks like the motherboards will be showcased right after the AMD Computex keynote and we are also expecting to see a slightly upgraded version of the top X670 chipset, currently being referred to as X670E. We don’t know the exact details of this chipset but rest assured, they are based on a chiplet design. With that said, the actual launch event will take place a few months later where AMD will announce the actual Ryzen 7000 CPUs along with their prices. It looks like an event close to Gamescom 2022 would make the perfect sense but as of right now, we are looking forward to AMD’s big unveil at Computex 2022.
