AMD could be launching its Ryzen 7000 Series processors a little later than expected.

Despite the September 15 date that has been going around, the Ryzen 7000 Series will now supposedly release on September 27, according to new reports. This happens to be the same day that Intel is expected to host its next Innovation event, where it’ll presumably be introducing its 13th Gen Intel Core “Raptor Lake-S” desktop processors.

The new launch date for AMD’s Zen 4-based processors stems from at least two outlets, including MyDrivers and Wccftech, the latter of which suggested that red team still plans on detailing its new chips as part of an event set for later this month.

Earlier this month, we reported that AMD was going to host an event in late August where they will announce all the details such as specs and prices for their next-gen Ryzen 7000 “Zen 4” CPUs and the respective AM5 platform. The company had also planned to open up sales just two weeks later on the 15th of September. But it looks like AMD has decided to halt the sales a bit and position the real launch next to Intel’s 13th Gen Raptor Lake CPUs on the 27th of September.

AMD’s opening volley of Ryzen 7000 Series processors is expected to be the following, as listed by MyDrivers:

  • Ryzen 9 7950X (16 cores/32 threads, 4.5/5.7 GHz, 16 MB L2 + 64 MB L3, 170 W TDP)
  • Ryzen 9 7900X (12 cores/24 threads, 4.7/5.6 GHz, 12 MB L2 + 64 MB L3, 170 W TDP)
  • Ryzen 7 7700X (8 cores/16 threads, 4.5/5.4 GHz, 8 MB L2 + 32 MB L3, 105 W TDP)
  • Ryzen 5 7600X (6 cores/12 threads, 4.7/5.3 GHz, 6 MB L2 + 32 MB L3, 105 W TDP)
