AMD introduced the new Ryzen 7000 processor series, which will breathe new life into its competition with Intel. The new series has a big performance difference compared to Intel’s flagship series, according to AMD’s statements.
AMD introduced its new processors and chipset that will power computers today. Taking the stage at the Computex 2022 event, AMD showed off its new Ryzen 7000 desktop processors, new APUs and motherboard chip.
AMD’s new processor series, Ryzen 7000, brought a new necessity for computer owners. Those who want to use the processor series with the brand new Zen 4 architecture will have to throw their AM4 motherboards aside and replace them with a new AM5 supported motherboard. So, what will this processor and other components offer users?
Here are the new Ryzen 7000 series processors with 5 nm technology
Taking advantage of 5 nm technology, the new Ryzen 7000 series processors will enable AMD to break the 5 GHz barrier in desktop processors for the first time. According to the information shared by AMD, in addition to this increase in processor speed, the processor will offer 15% better performance on the single-core side than previous processors with Zen 3 architecture.
Test results shown by AMD showed that the new 16-core Ryzen 7000 processor clocks up to 5.5 GHz. However, the processor was 31% faster than Intel’s flagship Core i9-12900K processor in the rendering test from Blender. AMD’s new processors will come with PCIe 5.0 support.
The prices of the processors have not been shared yet.
Motherboards with new 600 series chipset with the AM5 socket
Along with desktop processors, AMD also introduced new chipsets that carry the AM5 socket required to run these processors. The new chipsets, called X670 Extreme, X670 and B650, will include PCIe 5.0 support. The flagship of the chipsets, which renew AMD’s five-year motherboard architecture, will of course be the X670 Extreme.
The X670 Extreme will offer PCIe 5.0 support for both graphics cards and M.2 slots. On the other hand, although the X670 will have PCIe 5.0 interface support in the M.2 slot, it will be able to offer both PCIe 4.0 and PCIe 5.0 support in the first graphics card slot. The fact that 5.0 and 4.0 support can be offered at the same time will allow us to see slightly cheaper X670 motherboards with the preference for PCIe 4.0. The B650 chipset will have PCIe 5.0 support for a single NVMe slot. If the chipset is in the graphics card slots, it will only support PCIe 4.0.
New APUs for lower-priced performance laptops have also been introduced:
In addition to the new chipset and Ryzen 7000 processors, AMD also introduced new APUs that we will see in more ‘affordable’ laptops. Introduced under the name Mendocino, the new APUs will include Zen 2 architecture and offer RDNA 2 graphics support. The new APU is expected to have an estimated 10 hours of battery life in mixed-use. AMD has not yet shared all the features of its new APU.
