It won’t be long until AMD officially announces its Ryzen 7000 Series processors at Computex 2022, but VideoCardz has provided an early teaser of what red team plans to share with a leaked slide that can confirm some of the improvements that the new CPUs are set to bring. Among those is a substantial boost in single-threaded performance; AMD claims that its Zen 4-based Ryzen desktop processors will boast more than a 15% uplift in that department. Users can also expect a new range of SKUs that are capable of hitting maximum boost clocks of over 5 GHz out of the box, a number that even the current Ryzen 9 5950X flagship can’t quite match on its official list of specifications. Another slide can confirm two 5 nm core chiplets based on the new Zen 4 architecture, one 6 nm I/O, DDR5 and PCIe 5.0 controllers, and an RDNA 2-based iGPU. AMD’s Ryzen 7000 Series processors will launch this fall, although exact release dates are still to come.
AMD reaffirms its Ryzen 7000 series will support PCIe Gen5 standard as well as DDR5 memory technology. The LGA1718 socket will retain compatibility with AM4 coolers. Furthermore, the rumor about high-power TDP SKUs has been confirmed. The next-generation AM5 socket will support up to 170W, however, this is not mentioned for Ryzen 7000 specifically.
In terms of performance, AMD is claiming its Zen4 core architecture will offer over 15% single-thread uplift (sadly we do not have the footnotes explaining what is being compared here), 2X bigger (1MB) L2 cache per core and Max Boost over 5 GHz.
Furthermore, AMD has finally revealed what is under the new heatspreader. There are two 5 nm Zen4 core chiplets and one 6nm I/O. There is clearly no room for a third CCDs, but there is really no way to tell how will this design evolve in next generations.
