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 response to a brand new Wccftech report.
Later this month, AMD will host a briefing on its upcoming know-how. It’s unclear if it will likely be only for media, or if it will likely be live-streamed (we assume it’s the latter, however you by no means know). Two weeks later it can 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 identical occasion beforehand for August fifth. The signup web page for that occasion continues to be stay, nevertheless it looks as if it simply received pushed again for some purpose.
The occasion will probably be much 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 shall be featured (beneath).
We even have a reasonably good thought of which CPUs it can launch. Beforehand AMD uploaded the title 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 shall be 8 PM EST within the US. The embargoes for critiques and gross sales shall be on US East Coast time, nonetheless. 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 response to Wccftech.
Though the upper-midrange CPUs will probably be a part of the ceremony, we count on AMD to showcase the height efficiency of its high-end CPUs on X670 Excessive motherboards. There ought to be ample overclocking demonstrations as effectively. AMD has already talked up overclocking fairly a bit over the previous couple of months. Not solely on the CPU, however for reminiscence as effectively with EXPO, or EXtended Profiles for Overclocking. This ought to be much like Intel’s XMP.
AMD is predicted to be aiming for the moon with Zen 4, as there are reviews it can assist among the quickest DDR5 reminiscence accessible. AMD additionally beforehand demoed Zen 4 operating at 5.5GHz at Computex. Intel’s upcoming Raptor Lake has additionally been noticed operating a dual-core increase clock of 5.8GHz, so this battle goes to be a spicy one.
