AMD is reportedly very near launching its next-gen CPU structure. We knew it was coming in “the autumn” however weren’t positive of the precise dates. Now these dates are confirmed, in line with a brand new Wccftech report.
Later this month, AMD will host a briefing on its upcoming know-how. It’s unclear if will probably be only for media, or if will probably be live-streamed (we assume it’s the latter, however you by no means know). Two weeks later it should raise the NDA on benchmarks. Then, two days after that on Sept.15, its new CPUs (and their accompanying motherboards) will formally go on sale. AMD introduced an analogous occasion beforehand for August fifth. The signup web page for that occasion continues to be stay, but it surely looks like it simply bought pushed again for some cause.
The occasion will seemingly be just like the beforehand deliberate shindig. AMD will placed on a canine and pony present for its Ryzen 7000 “Raphael” CPUs first. Subsequent, a few of its motherboard companions will exhibit their X670 and X670 Excessive motherboards. It had beforehand scheduled ASRock, Asus, Biostar, Gigabyte, and MSI to talk. AMD has additionally already listed the names of the motherboards that will probably be featured (beneath).
We even have a reasonably good concept of which CPUs it should launch. Beforehand AMD uploaded the identify of 4 Zen 4 CPUs to its web site’s useful resource library. The CPUs listed embrace the Ryzen 9 7950X, Ryzen 9 7900X, Ryzen 7 7700X, and Ryzen 5 7600X. They’re anticipated to be a 16C/32T, 12C/24T, 8C/16T, and 6C/12T components.
The preliminary unveiling is timed to happen at 8 AM Taiwan time on the thirtieth, which will probably be 8 PM EST within the US. The embargoes for critiques and gross sales will probably be on US East Coast time, nevertheless. Benchmarks will drop Sept. 13 at 9 AM EST. Zen 4 merchandise will then go on sale on Sept. 15, additionally at 9 AM EST, in line with Wccftech.
Though the upper-midrange CPUs will seemingly be a part of the ceremony, we anticipate AMD to showcase the height efficiency of its high-end CPUs on X670 Excessive motherboards. There must be ample overclocking demonstrations as properly. AMD has already talked up overclocking fairly a bit over the previous couple of months. Not solely on the CPU, however for reminiscence as properly with EXPO, or EXtended Profiles for Overclocking. This must be just like Intel’s XMP.
AMD is anticipated to be aiming for the moon with Zen 4, as there are reviews it should assist a few of the quickest DDR5 reminiscence out there. AMD additionally beforehand demoed Zen 4 working at 5.5GHz at Computex. Intel’s upcoming Raptor Lake has additionally been noticed working a dual-core increase clock of 5.8GHz, so this battle goes to be a spicy one.
