AMD may be officially breaking the 5 GHz speed barrier with its next round of Ryzen processors for desktop systems. One of the first Ryzen 7000 Series chips had temporarily appeared on OpenBenchmarking.org as part of a run on the Phoronix Test Suite, revealing an engineering sample that features 8 cores and an exciting clock speed of 5.2 GHz—a specification that’s admirably higher than even the highest maximum boost clock listed for AMD’s current flagship, the Ryzen 9 5950X (4.9 GHz). Recent reports have suggested that AMD may launch its first Ryzen 7000 Series processors and accompanying AM5 platform as early as September.

More importantly, we now have the ID of the Zen4 desktop CPU’s integrated graphics. Here’s a reminder that Raphael will be the first mainstream Ryzen platform to feature integrated graphics. Thus far, this has been a domain for mobile Ryzen APUs, some of which were later re-released as desktop G-series. The Raphael CPUs will go exactly the opposite direction, by debuting on desktops and later going to mobile devices, as high-end gaming 55W CPUs codenamed “Dragon Range”, or so it is rumored.
