AMD presented its Ryzen 7000 at Computex 2022. Its new processors will be based on Zen4 cores which are engraved in 5 nm at TSMC, as well as on I / O Die engraved in 6 nm integrating an RDNA 2 GPU The commercial launch will take place during the fall of 2022.
Like every year, AMD takes advantage of Computex to announce some new features. And that’s quite normal: the Taiwanese show is one of the unmissable events for the entire IT market. This year, it was the Ryzen 7000s that were particularly anticipated. We have been talking about these components for several months now. And, very fortunately, AMD did not miss this golden opportunity: the American founder has unveiled the first part of the technical characteristics of its processors. We have placed the official presentation video for you at the end of this article.

First information, the Ryzen 7000 will be available this year. The exact date has not been mentioned. But Lisa Su, the boss of AMD, announced that the commercial launch would take place sometime in fall 2022. Either before the end of the year (but not before the end of September either). This does not mean that they will be widely available, since the shortage of components should continue, at least, until the end of the year (and this even if the tension on the manufacturers seems less high).
The Ryzen 7000s rely on Zen4 cores engraved in 5 nm
Second piece of information, the Ryzen 7000s obviously rely on the zen4 hearts. There are two “chiplets” per processor. They are engraved in 5nm at TSMC. This is the first time that PC processors are engraved in 5 nm… if you put aside the M1 from Apple and the Snapdragon 8cx Gen 3 from Qualcomm which already benefit from this finesse. Good. According to AMD, these cores offer an improvement in 15% performance. In addition, the founder confirms that the processor can be overclocked beyond 5 GHz.
Another novelty of the Ryzen 7000: the I/O Die. He is engraved in 6 nm. It incorporates a RDNA2 GPUs for solutions without a dedicated GPU. It is compatible DDR5 and PCIe 5.0. A leak last month claimed that processors running the AM5 socket would only be compatible with DDR5. And this is confirmed today. AMD has also given some additional details about motherboards with this interface. They support up to 4 screens (in HDMI 2.1 or DisplayPort 2), up to 14 USB type-C ports, WiFi 6E and Bluetooth LE 5.2. ASRock, Asus, MSI, Biostar and Gigabyte will be among the first brands to offer AM5 motherboards.
