At the CES 2022 event, AMD released the Ryzen 6000 series APU based on the Zen 3+ architecture and the Ryzen 7 5800X3D processor with 3D V-Cache technology. In addition, AMD also confirmed the LGA 1718 socket style of the new generation AM5 platform, as well as the appearance of the Zen 4 architecture processor code-named Raphael. This will be the Ryzen 7000 series processor to be released this year and the first Ryzen desktop processor to use an LGA base.
During the event, AMD played a game video of Halo: Infinite, which was run on a platform built with Ryzen 7000 series processors and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 graphics cards, but did not provide specific frame numbers. However, AMD CEO Dr. Lisa Su said that the frame rate is very high. AMD also confirmed that the full-core frequency of the Zen 4 architecture processor demonstrated has reached 5.0 GHz, which indicates that the single-core acceleration frequency may be higher.
Coincidentally, Intel demonstrated the Core i9-12900KS processor in a subsequent event, with an all-core turbo frequency reaching 5.2 GHz.
The Raphael processor based on the Zen 4 architecture will be manufactured using TSMC’s 5nm process, and the IOD will use the 6nm process, integrated RDNA 2 architecture core, support PCIe 5.0 and dual-channel DDR5-5200 memory, and native USB 4.0. AMD said that Ryzen 7000 series processors will be launched in the second half of 2022.
