AMD has announced four new processors in its Ryzen 7000 series that will be available in September. The new processors will feature up to eight cores and 32 threads. The company claims that they will offer significant performance per watt improvements. The processors will come with a TDP of 170 Watts and an optional boost to 230 Watts for a socket-based system.
The Ryzen 7000 series comes with a new chipset that contains three chiplets. These chiplets are composed of two 5nm Zen 4 CPU modules and one new 6nm I/O die. The new chips also have a built-in power management chip and DDR5 and PCIe 5.0 controllers. They will also offer some graphical performance. AMD has said that the new processors will ship with V-Cache, which is a massive slice of cache atop the chip die.
The new Ryzen 7000 series will be compatible with motherboards with all three AMD B650/B650 chipsets. AMD has also confirmed that the new Ryzen processors will not artificially limit the performance of B-Series chipsets. The X670/E motherboards will be available on September 27, while the B650 boards are expected to debut in October. AMD has stated that these motherboards will support PCIe Gen 5 SSDs and PCIe 4 GPUs.
The Ryzen 7000 series promises to push the performance limits of gaming and adaptive computing. The new Ryzen processors will feature the new Zen 4 microarchitecture and the AM5 platform. They will also support DDR5 memory and PCIe 5.0 for faster graphics performance. AMD’s new processors will also feature new ISA extensions that help with AI.
