AMD’s Ryzen CPUs will arrive sooner this year. CEO Lisa Su said the products will launch on Sept. 30.
“We’re on track to launch our new Ryzen 7000 desktop processors and AM5 (motherboard) platform later this quarter,” Su said during AMD earnings call.
That’s fantastic news for AMD aficionados building PCs with the new CPUs. AMD already teased new chips for September. The Zen 3 Ryzen 5000 series launched in November 2020.
The Ryzen 7000 CPUs will have various enhancements, including TSMC’s 5-nanometer Zen 4 CPU design. Some chips will run at over 5GHz.
AMD announced in June that Zen 4 will enhance instructions per clock by 8 to 10% over its predecessor. A 16-core Ryzen 7000 CPU can enhance performance-per-watt by 25% over AMD’s last-generation silicon, according to company benchmarks.
Ryzen 7000 CPUs require an AM5 motherboard. Thursday, AMD will showcase various motherboards. More to come.
AMD’s CEO indicated PC demand has slowed owing to the recession during an earnings call. She said, “We believe we’re well-positioned to navigate the current environment based on our product portfolio and upcoming launches.”
Later this year, the business will release RDNA 3 graphics cards. AMD’s desktop GPU sales have slowed. AMD’s CEO attributed the shortage to “more supply versus demand” and consumers cutting back on spending.
