AMD CEO Dr Lisa Su announced some details about the company’s upcoming Ryzen 7000 series CPUs at her Computex 2022 keynote, along with a new AM5 socket and 600-chipset series for the motherboards that will come with them. The company also showcased its upcoming ‘Mendocino’ CPU lineup for affordable entry-level laptops and Chromebooks, as well as a new Smart Storage feature for high-performance laptops. While specific details on model, pricing, and features were not disclosed, AMD has said that these products will launch in late 2022.
AMD Ryzen 7000 series, socket AM5, X670E, X670, B650
The Ryzen 7000 series CPUs, codenamed ‘Raphael’, will be based on the Zen 4 CPU core architecture and will feature up to 16 cores spread across two physical chiplets. These chiplets will be manufactured using the new 5nm technology TSMC process and CPU will also have a new IO die based on the 6nm process.
AMD will be introducing the new AM5 socket, finally removing the AM4 standard that was in place before the introduction of the original Ryzen CPUs in 2017. This will allow the generation to move to DDR5 RAM and the PCIe 5.0 connectivity standard. . The maximum TDP supported will be up to 170W and all coolers designed for the AM4 socket will be compatible. This also marks a change to an LGA-style CPU package, from the current battery grid layout.
AMD promises a “significant above 5GHz” boost in clock speeds, and a demonstration shown during the presentation showed a pre-production 16-core CPU model running at up to 5.5GHz in Ghostwire gaming. : Tokyo. The CPU also proved to beat Intel’s Core i9-12900K in Multi-Thread Blender workloads.
Zen 4 CPU cores will feature twice the current-gen L2 cache and extensive instructions for AI-accelerated processing. The company will also use GPU Architecture RDNA2 for integrated graphics capabilities. AMD celebrate improved power efficiency and a 15% increase in single-threaded performance thanks to higher clock speeds, architectural improvements, and new manufacturing processes.
Ryzen 7000 CPUs will have up to 24 PCIe 5.0 lanes. Platform capabilities include Wi-Fi 6E, up to 14 USB ports, and four simultaneous displays over HDMI 2.1 and/or DisplayPort 2.0. Three new desktop chipsets have been announced: the X670 Extreme for “the most demanding enthusiasts” will support multiple PCIe 5.0 devices along with extreme overclocking and power delivery. The X670 will appeal to “the majority of enthusiasts and gamers” with PCIe 5.0 for at least one M.2 graphics card and storage device. Mainstream B650-based motherboards will only support PCIe 5.0 for storage devices. The budget segment will likely continue to be delivered by AM4 products for some time.
Motherboards based on AM5 from ASRock, AsusBiostar, Gigabytesand MSI will be announced this week at Computex 2022and will be sold alongside the new Ryzen 7000 CPUs later this year. AMD also said that PCIe 5.0 SSDs from major brands will be available simultaneously, and that it has been working closely with SSD and controller manufacturers.
More information like the Ryzen 7000 series SKUs, specifications and pricing, and details on the Zen 4 core architecture will be announced closer to the “fall 2022” launch date.
AMD CPU ‘Mendocino’
Along with new desktop hardware for enthusiasts, AMD talked about the success of Ryzen 6000 series laptop CPUannounced at CES earlier this yearand introduced a new line of CPUs codenamed ‘Mendocino’ for low-cost laptops and Chromebooks. Curiously, this is the same codename Intel used for one of its first generations of Celeron CPUs in the late 1990s. AMD’s Mendocino will be based on the Zen 2 CPU core architecture but will also feature RDNA2 graphics capabilities. Other specs include support for LPDDR5 RAM. The CPU will have up to four cores with eight threads. The company predicts more than 10 hours of battery life for laptops using Mendocino.
AMD is targeting laptops in the price range of $399 to $699 (around Rs 30,000 – Rs 55,000 before tax). Laptop OEMs will begin announcing models in Q4 2022. These models will appeal to students, office workers, and those who need simple, basic productivity in a portable package. motion.
During the keynote, AMD also showcased the success of its AMD Advantage laptop design program and the various capabilities OEMs can deploy with AMD CPUs and GPUs. Along with word models Alienware, Lenovo, HP and Asus offer such capabilities, AMD also previewed the upcoming Corsair Voyager laptop designed for mobile gaming and streaming. With AMD hardware and smart features along with a 16-inch display, 10-key Elgato command center, and dedicated webcam and video input switching controls, the Corsair Voyager will be available in select countries later. year 2022.
Corsair launches its first gaming and streaming laptop exclusively with amd – its entire line of smart technology products, 16″ premium display. Traveler. A true mobile streaming solution. 10 keys elgato command center. Integrated camera center software, change video input and field of view. DDR5, available this summer includes versions that are customizable from the ground up.
Finally, the new Smart Access Memory will leverage Microsoft DirectStorage to allow large game textures and 3D models to be loaded directly from the NVMe SSD into the GPU’s memory.
