AMD’s Ryzen 7000 desktop CPUs will begin transport on September 27

AMD has officially announced the company-owned Ryzen 7000 processor model accidentally revealed back in July. It will release four models on September 27, to be exact, the most affordable being the 6-core Ryzen 5 7600X which will set you back $299, followed by the 8-core Ryzen 7700X which costs $100 more at $399. 12-core CPU The Ryzen 9 7900X will retail for $549, while the 16-core Ryzen 9 7950X will retail for $699. As Ars Technica Note, the 7600X and 7900X models have the same launch price as their direct predecessors from Ryzen 5000 lineup, while the 7950X is $100 cheaper. The 7700X costs $100 more than the 5700X, but that model launched more than a year after the first Ryzen 5000 processors came out.

The Ryzen 7000 model is based on AMD’s Zen 4 architecture, which promises max boost speeds above 5GHz, AI acceleration, and double L2 cache. They use the AM5 platform, the chipmaker’s new socket generation, 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 means less heat and more power for the user.

AMD claims that the Ryzen 7000 processor is about 29 percent faster than the Ryzen 5000 model for single-threaded tasks, including gaming. Chief Technology Officer Mark Papermaster told CNETthough, when the company measured for tasks spanning 16 processor processing cores, the speed increase was 49 percent.

If you’re looking for a Zen 4 CPU that’s cheaper than the four, you’ll have to wait until next year when more affordable laptop options and models are scheduled to arrive. The company intends to continue selling processors based on the legacy Zen architecture that works with the AM4 platform, so you still have options if you want to build a PC on a budget.
