AMD’s Ryzen 7000 desktop CPUs will start shipping on September 27
AMD has officially announced the Ryzen 7000 processor models that the company has accidentally revealed back in July. Specifically, it will release four models on September 27, specifically, the most affordable is the 6-core Ryzen 5 7600X which will set you back $299, followed by the 8-core Ryzen 7700X which costs $100 more. USD at 399 USD. The 12-core Ryzen 9 7900X CPU will sell for $549, while the 16-core Ryzen 9 7950X will cost $699. Like Ars Technica note, the 7600X and 7900X models have the same launch price as their direct predecessors from Ryzen 5000 Series, while the 7950X is $100 cheaper. The 7700X costs $100 more than the 5700X, but that model came out more than a year after the first Ryzen 5000 processors debuted.
The Ryzen 7000 models are based on AMD’s Zen 4 architecture, which promises to offer top boost speeds above 5GHz, AI acceleration, and double the L2 cache. They use the chip manufacturer’s new generation of socket AM5 platform and will require DDR5 RAM. They are also the first desktop CPUs based on the 5nm manufacturing process, according to Gizmodo, and that means they have more transistors than 5000 chips. That usually results in less heat and more power for the user.
AMD claims that the Ryzen 7000 processors are about 29% faster than the Ryzen 5000 models for single-threaded tasks, including games. Chief Technology Officer Mark Papermaster told CnetHowever, when the company measured tasks that spanned 16 processor cores of the processor, the speed increased to 49%.
If you’re looking for cheaper Zen 4 CPUs than these four, you’ll have to wait until next year when more affordable laptop options and models are expected to appear. However, the company intends to continue selling processors based on the older Zen architectures that work with the AM4 platform, so you still have options if you’re looking to build a PC on a budget. savings book.
