AMD may be planning to launch its first Ryzen 7000 Series desktop processors and AM5 motherboards on September 15, according to an image shared on Twitter today by @wxnod that was seemingly taken during an event in China relating to red team’s upcoming generation of hardware. A slide on the TV can be clearly seen, one that pairs the alleged release date with a photo of AMD’s new LGA 1718 socket on the AM5 platform, which is set to introduce support for exciting technologies that include PCIe Gen 5 and DDR5 memory. AMD has not confirmed an exact release date for its Ryzen 7000 Series desktop processors and AM5 motherboards yet but promised again during its recent COMPUTEX 2022 event that they’ll be available sometime this fall.
Continuing to expand on the innovation and leadership performance of the Ryzen 5000 Series desktop processors, the new Ryzen 7000 Series desktop processors are based on the extremely efficient 5nm “Zen 4” architecture. The new processors will double the amount of L2 cache per core, feature higher clock speeds, and are projected to provide greater than 15% uplift in single-thread performance versus the prior generation, for an unmatched desktop PC experience.1 During the keynote, a pre-production Ryzen 7000 Series desktop processor was demonstrated running at 5.5 GHz clock speed throughout AAA game play. The same processor was also demonstrated performing more than 30% faster than an Intel Core i9 12900K in a Blender multi-threaded rendering workload.
