Judging from previous news, AMD is likely to release the Zen 4 architecture Ryzen 7000 series processors around August 29 and Gamescom 2022, and the sale time will be around September 15. But judging from the latest news, AMD intends to delay the launch of the processor until the end of September.
At the launch event at the end of the month, AMD is likely to announce all the details and sales prices of the Ryzen 7000 processor and AM5 platform, but wccftech said that AMD will postpone the release time of the processor from September 15 to September 27, and that day happens to be the day of Intel’s Innovation event. Intel will release the 13th generation Core processor that day, so AMD’s intention to delay the launch date of the Ryzen 7000 processor is obvious. It shows that they are very confident in their own new-generation processors and dare to sell new products when their opponents release them.
AMD’s first four Ryzen 7000 series processors include the Ryzen 9 7950X with 16 cores and 32 threads, the Ryzen 9 7900X with 12 cores and 24 threads, and the Ryzen 7 7700X with 8 cores and 16 threads, and the Ryzen 5 7600X with 6 cores and 12 threads. According to previous news, the TDP of the Ryzen 9 processor should be 170W, at least the top Ryzen 9 7950X is this value, while the Ryzen 7 7700X and Ryzen 5 7600X maybe 65W, or higher.
The corresponding AM5 platform launch lineup includes X670E and X670. As for the B650 motherboard, it may be launched in October or November. The new AM5 platform will support PCI-E 5.0 and DDR5 memory.
