AMD announces Ryzen 7000 series processors, available September 25

AMD today announced its Ryzen 7000 series consumer desktop processors. Based on the new AM5 platform and the new Zen 4 architecture, these new CPUs introduce a significant performance improvement over the previous generation Ryzen 5000 series and introduce advanced features such as DDR5 and PCIe Gen 5.

The four CPUs announced today are the 7950X, the 7900X, the 7700X, and the 7600X. These have similar core and thread counts to the first wave of Ryzen 5000 releases, but with some price changes.

At the top of the stack is the Ryzen 9 7950X, a 16-core, 32-thread processor capable of boosting up to 5.7GHz and with a base clock of 4.2GHz. It features 80MB of total cache capacity and has a TDP of 170W. It costs $699, which is $100 less than the 5950X’s launch price.

Next up is the 12-core, 24-thread Ryzen 9 7900X, which has a boost clock of 5.6GHz and a base clock of 4.7GHz. It has 76MB of total cache and a TDP of 170W. It costs $549, which is the same as the launch price of the 5900X.

The third model in the lineup is the 8-core, 16-thread Ryzen 7 7700X. It has a boost clock of 5.4 GHz and a base clock of 4.5 GHz. It has a total cache capacity of 40MB and a TDP of 105W. It costs $399, $50 less than the launch price of the 5800X.

Finally, there is the Ryzen 5 7600X. It features 6 cores, 12 threads and has a boost clock of up to 5.3GHz and a base clock of 4.7GHz. It has a total cache capacity of 38MB and a TDP of 105W. It costs $299, the same as the 5600X’s launch price.

All four processors also include integrated Radeon Graphics with 2 graphics cores, a graphics frequency of 2200 MHz and a base frequency of 400 MHz.

The new Ryzen 7000 processors are based on AMD’s new AM5 platform. This new platform starts with a new socket design with a 1718-pin LGA socket that can power the CPU up to 230W. But despite the new socket and IHS design, the AM5 platform is compatible with CPU coolers designed for AM4.

Speaking of coolers, none of the aforementioned Ryzen 7000 CPUs come with a cooler in the box.

The AM5 platform brings with it two new motherboard chipsets, the X670 and the B650, each of which also has an Extreme version that offers more connectivity options.

Along with the new platform and chipsets, the Ryzen 7000 processors will support both DDR5 memory and PCI Express 5.0. Unlike Intel, however, AMD is going all in on DDR5, meaning there will be no DDR4 memory support on the AM5 platform.

The AM5 platform supports the company’s new EXPO technology, which is essentially AMD’s version of Intel’s XMP. It is a one-click overclocking solution for memory and is what AMD processors will use in the future instead of XMP. By default, the Ryzen 7000 CPUs support memory speeds up to DDR5 5200MHz, but higher speeds can be enabled with EXPO.

One of the most impressive aspects of the AM4 platform was its longevity. AMD promises platform support until 2025+ for AM5, meaning you can expect current AM5 motherboards to be supported until at least 2025.

The Ryzen 7000 series processors are based on AMD’s new Zen 4 architecture. Based on TSMC’s latest 5nm process, Zen 4 promises an average IPC improvement of 13% over the previous generation Zen 3, with clock speeds up to 5.7GHz and up to 29% overall single-thread gain. AMD also claims up to 1.3x improvement in nT FP32 inference with AVX-512 and up to 2.5x improvement in nT inference with AVX-512 VNNI.

In terms of efficiency, the company promises a 62% lower power consumption for the same performance and 49% more performance for the same power over the Ryzen 5000 series. AMD also claims up to 47% more efficiency compared to Alder Lake. AMD has provided additional first-party benchmarks against the competition, but we’re going to ignore them for now and wait for third-party testing with less picked data.

Overall, AMD promises a good generation improvement with the Ryzen 7000 series and the higher end prices seem competitive. However, the cheapest entry in the series still starts at $300, which may not seem like much at launch until you factor in the cost of the rest of the system, including a new AM5 motherboard (which starts at $125) and the cost of new DDR5 memory, which is still expensive. The TDP for the 6-core model has also gone up and with no cooler in the box, that’s another expense to consider.

The Ryzen 7000 series CPUs will hit shelves on September 27. The X670 and X670 Extreme motherboards will be available in September and the B650 and B650 Extreme motherboards in October. PCIe 5.0 drives will be available from major manufacturers in November.
