AMD Ryzen 7000: New Line of AM5 Processors

Ryzen Processor

AMD made a few announcements for the foreseeable future. Since the original introduction of AMD’s Ryzen CPUs in 2017, the company has had a long and winding road. According to what we’ve observed, AMD isn’t going to stop breaking limits and inventing. The firm provided us with a deeper look at the new AMD Ryzen 7000 series desktop CPUs, in particular.

For a long time, rumors and leaks of information have circulated the Internet, but now it is official. AMD has announced its refurbished processor of desktop computer, the Ryzen 7000, during a Computex event.

Additionally, AMD confirmed that this is the next step in the Zen architecture’s progression in a variety of ways.The new Ryzens will require new motherboards, memory, and even storage to fully demonstrate their capabilities. AMD is retiring the AM4 platform, which has served millions of customers well, in preference for the AM5 platform, which will be released alongside the new Ryzens.

AMD Ryzen 7000: Zen 4 and 5 nm Processors for Consumer Desktops

The AMD Ryzen 7000 series has officially revealed. And it comes with a slew of new features aimed at providing a premium desktop experience. The AMD Ryzen 7000 series is the newest in AMD’s arsenal, and possibly one of the most highly awaited CPU announcements of the year.

The Zen 4 microarchitecture is built on an improved TSMC 5 nm manufacturing process, which we’ve known for a long time. But we didn’t know some of the more intricate details until recently. Although the TSMC 5 nm manufacturing technique was originally used in cellphones, with Apple and Huawei both advocating for it, the Zen 4 is the first x86 desktop system to employ it.

The AMD Ryzen 7000 and Zen 4 have a chipset-based architecture with two Core Complex Dies (CCDs) based on TSMC’s 5 nm manufacturing process, comparable to the Zen 3. AMD is looking for higher clock speeds in conjunction with the L2 cache upgrade, owing to their architectural style and TSMC’s 5nm manufacturing.

For the time being, AMD is only claiming “5GHz+” peak turbo clock speeds. However, AMD’s pre-production 16 core Ryzen 7000 CPU reportedly spotted climbing to beyond 5.5GHz in a demo video supplied by Dr. Su. This is a huge increase above AMD’s current Ryzen 5000 desktop CPUs’ sub-5GHz capabilities.

AMD claims a 15 percent gain in single-threaded performance. As a result of this cache, architectural (IPC), and clock speed enhancements. When further details about this and other aspects of the chip become available, they will become official. But it appears that AMD is introducing instructions for data manipulation in standard AI data formats like bfloat16 and int8/int4.

AMD is also launching a new 6-nanometer I/O die (IOD) for Ryzen 7000. Which substitutes the 14 nanometers IOD utilized in prior Zen 3 designs.

As a result, with the Ryzen 7000 generation, all of AMD’s CPUs will be technically APUs, as graphics are an integral aspect of the chip’s design. The improved IOD also gives AMD the chance to save a lot of power on the platform.

On the subject of power, AMD has said that Ryzen 7000 refurbished processor would have greater TDPs chip of up to 170 Watts, with peak power consumption (Package Power Tracking) of up to 230 Watts.

Last but not least, AMD’s Zen 4 microarchitecture, when paired with the new IOD, adds a slew of additional capabilities. Thus, including official PCIe 5.0 compatibility, similar to what Intel did with its Alder Lake (12th Gen Core) architecture.

As a result, Ryzen 7000 processors installed on some lower-end motherboards will only support a small number of PCIe 5.0 lanes, with the remainder running at PCIe 4.0 speeds.

AMD’s AM5 Platform

With the release of AMD’s Ryzen 7000 CPU family, the preceding AM4 platform has officially come to an end. The AMD Ryzen 7000 CPU series will be the first to use AMD’s new AM5 architecture. AM5, which uses an LGA-type socket with 1718 pins and supports DDR5 and PCIe 5.0, as well as greater CPU TDPs, is the final piece of the puzzle.

AMD’s systems will now support quad-channel (128-bit) DDR5 memory, which promises a considerable increase in memory bandwidth. AMD is also offering exclusively DDR5 support, which is an interesting choice. AMD has announced that AM5 will support AMD’s Serial Voltage 3 (SVI3) standard for power supply.

A trio of new motherboard chipsets will support the new AM5 platform: the X670E, X670, and B650. The X670E ‘Extreme’ chipset features a complete loadout of PCIe 5.0 compatibility, including support for two PCIe 5.0 graphics cards and at least one PCIe 5.0 M.2 storage slot.

Because all of AMD’s Ryzen 7000 CPUs will feature integrated graphics. The AM5 platform as a whole will have graphics capability baked into every tier of motherboards. With a mix of HDMI 2.1 and DisplayPort 2, AM5 motherboards will be able to handle up to four display outputs.

AMD Ryzen 7000: Performance

The Zen 4 CPUs from AMD will be manufactured using TSMC’s 5nm technology. Advancements in IPC, latency and memory bandwidth per core will be obtained. Here’s a short rundown of the numbers revealed:

  • An increase of 8-10% in the number of instructions per clock.
  • At least a 15% increase in single-thread performance.
  • Memory bandwidth per core of up to 125 percent.
  • The clock speed is more than 5.5 GHz.
  • At least a 25% increase in performance per watt.
  • At least a 35% boost in overall performance.

The next Zen 4 refurbished processor could be among the finest CPUs available, presuming AMD executes its promises.


That’s the extent of AMD’s Computex 2022 announcements, which largely set the stage for the release of Zen 4 and AM5 later this year. AMD appears to be putting a lot of effort into its AM5 platform. AMD hasn’t revealed any details on individual CPUs just now.

However, how long AM5 will be sustained remains to be seen. As we come closer to the launch window, which begins in September, we’ll most likely find out.
