AMD introduces Ryzen 7000: 5 nm, 5.7 GHz, up to 16 cores and sales start on September 27

Today, August 30 at 02:00 Moscow time, AMD employees held an official presentation of the Ryzen 7000 processor family, which, as it turned out, insiders knew everything a month before the announcement. For example, as expected, the Ryzen 7000 line currently consists of four processors with 6, 8, 12 and 16 cores, which are built on the latest Zen 4 architecture and assume the use of the modern socket AM5. These are the first desktop processors produced using the 5 nm process technology, and for the first time in many years, AMD has abandoned the “legs” on the processor, thereby catching up with its main competitor in this matter.

Model range of AMD Ryzen 7000 processors:

  • Ryzen 9 7950X – 16 cores, 32 threads, 4.5-5.7GHz, 64MB L3 cache, 170W, $799.
  • Ryzen 9 7900X – $549
  • Ryzen 7 7700X – $399
  • Ryzen 5 7600X – $299

The main advantage of the new generation of processors, AMD employees call higher performance – in comparison with the Ryzen 5000, the increase in IPC was 13%. This was achieved both thanks to the new Zen 4 microarchitecture, and by increasing clock frequencies, which, in fact, are worth mentioning separately. In single-threaded mode, the clock speed of the Ryzen 7000 processors can reach 5.7 GHz – this gives a performance increase in single-threaded mode by 29% compared to the Ryzen 5000. At the same time, however, power consumption has increased, but this point is only mentioned in passing .

Naturally, in the process of announcing each of the processors of the new line, the manufacturer boasted of an increase in performance and compared its chips with competitor models. For example, the Ryzen 9 7950X, the flagship processor of the new line, was 40% more powerful than the Ryzen 9 5950X in content creation applications, while the increase in video games at 1080p was 21%. Probably, 1080p was chosen so that the percentage was higher – it is obvious that in 4K the performance gain would be three to four times less. And AMD also said that the 16-core flagship turned out to be more powerful than the Core i9-12900K – by 45% in content processing software and by 9% in video games. This means that the 13th generation of Intel processors may well outperform AMD’s new products, at least in gaming tasks.

But the best part is that the base model Ryzen 5 7600X also proved to be more powerful than the Core i9-12900K in video games – according to AMD’s internal tests, the youngest model in the Ryzen 7000 line is 5% more productive than the current Intel flagship. Of course, new “blue team” chips will be released soon, and then it will be difficult to compete with the flagship, but only in the context of video games this is a very powerful solution.

But besides the performance boost, the Ryzen 7000 has a few other important bonuses to look out for. For example, the new processors support PCIe 5.0, DDR5 RAM, boast a graphics core based on the RDNA2 architecture, and are manufactured using TSMC N6 technology. As a result, the new chips are more energy efficient, allowing higher clock speeds and still have adequate power consumption.

All four processors will go on sale on September 27 – motherboards from partner companies will also go on sale with them, but there is also an interesting point here. By the end of September, manufacturers will only launch boards based on the flagship X670 and X670E chipsets, while the simpler B650 and B650E chipsets will appear only in October. Accordingly, there is no point in buying the youngest processor model in the line for a top-end chipset, which means that users who want to get a gaming monster for $ 300 will have to wait a month longer.
