AMD Ryzen 7000: Everything we know about Zen 4 CPUs!

Because of AMD’s meteoric ascent in recent years, it is now one of the world’s largest component producers. Much of its expansion has been driven by its Ryzen CPUs, which have shown to be more than a match for Intel. AMD, like many component makers, isn’t afraid to announce long-term ambitions. Along with the announcement of the Ryzen 6000 Series mobile CPUs previously this year, the company acknowledged the existence of its successor, even giving certain critical specifications. Here’s all we know so far regarding the Ryzen 7000 Series.

AMD launched out 2022 with its new Ryzen 6000 mobile CPUs and the Ryzen 5800X3D, its current-gen gaming monarch. However, real next-generation AMD CPUs will be available later this year, with a fresh Zen 4 architecture, a new 5nm production node, faster clock speeds than ever before, and a much-enlarged feature and supported device list. AMD’s Ryzen 7000 processors are expected to be the most important CPUs introduced by AMD since the first-generation Ryzen processors in 2017.

Here’s all we know so far about the Ryzen 7000.

Pricing & Availability

AMD Ryzen 7000

AMD revealed at Computex 2022 that their Ryzen 7000 CPUs & AM5 motherboards will be available in the autumn of 2022, between September to November. This is a little later than some had hoped for, but it shows that the original Q3 forecasts were more late-Q3 than early-Q3.

Pricing is yet unknown, but it is expected to be similar to its current Ryzen 5000 CPUs, which held their launch prices for the majority of their lifetime, only lowering after the debut of Intel’s fiercely competitive Alder Lake processors.

So yet, there has been no hint of how much the Ryzen 7000 series would cost. That’s hardly unexpected given that AMD generally only discloses price at the launch event. The proposed cost for the newest Ryzen 5000 Series desktop CPUs, on the other hand, offers an idea of how much you’ll pay:

  • Ryzen 5 5600X – £275.36/US$299
  • Ryzen 9 5950X – £735.84/US$799
  • Ryzen 9 5900X – £505.61US$549
  • Ryzen 7 5800X – £413.51/US$449

These prices are $50 more than the Ryzen 4000 series. Given the usage of a new architecture plus manufacturing method, you may be required to pay even more for the following version.

Series specs and features

AMD Ryzen 7000

Despite being released a few months ahead of schedule, we already have some critical information about the Ryzen 7000 Series.

AMD is the first big supplier. The company acknowledged the existence of Ryzen 7000 Series CPUs during the unveiling of the Ryzen 6000 Series at CES 2022. We now know they will employ a 5nm technology and show off the future Zen 4 architecture.

The 5nm node, designated as N5 at TSMC, is touted to provide a 15% speed gain and 1.8X transistor density over N7. This allows the node to consume 30% less power for greater performance and efficiency. That’s not to assume Zen 4 will equal those gains. However, it’s likely what’s allowed such big increases in clock speeds without a corresponding rise in TDP.

AMD revealed a max TDP of 170W on its new-generation processors, which have undergone significant architectural modifications. Each 5nm chipset will feature up to eight cores and a 1MB L2 cache per core. In addition, each die will have a new 6nm I/O die with Radeon RDNA 2 graphics & AI acceleration.

It’s unclear whether the new chips will benefit from AMD’s 3D VCache technology, which is used in the 5800X3D CPU. However, since AMD hasn’t released any details on it, it’s possible that it’ll be used for a mid-generation refresh to enhance gaming ability between CPU lines, similar to how AMD did with Zen 3.

Integrated graphics and APUs

Integrated graphics and APUs

AMD isn’t needing to make any concessions to include integrated graphics because the GPU is on the I/O die rather than the main CPU chipsets, therefore all Ryzen 7000 processors will feature an onboard RDNA 2 GPU. However, Ryzen 7000 will not be able to replace APUs. Instead, the visuals given intend to help in debugging.

RDNA 2 is the same architecture that AMD is presently using on its Radeon RX 6000 GPUs, as well as the Xbox Series X & PlayStation 5. Also, they are using the new Ryzen 6000 mobile CPUs, so these chips should provide excellent entry-level gaming abilities.

This is useful not just for everyone who does not want to purchase a new GPU, but also for debugging GPU difficulties.

New chipset and a new socket of AMD Ryzen 7000


AMD is eliminating the AM4 socket, which it has used since the release of the first-generation Ryzen processors, with the next generation of CPUs. That’s hardly surprising given that the socket will be 5 years old by the time next-generation Ryzen CPUs arrive.

This new socket will employ an LGA1718, Land Grid Array architecture, with CPU pins located on the motherboard rather than on the CPU. For numerous generations, Intel has utilized LGA sockets. However, AMD has used the older Pin Grid Array socket architecture for everything up to Ryzen 5000.

New Socket

These new AM5 sockets will be part of a new generation of motherboards in the 600 series. The X670E extreme motherboards will have the highest quality VRMs for enhanced overclocking. Also, PCI-E 5 assistance on every M2 and PCI-E slot; X670 boards will have mainstream overclocking potential, as well as PCI-E 5 on both the first x16 PCI-Express slot. Also, will come with at least one M.2 slot, whereas B650 motherboards will still have PCI-E 5 for at least one M.2 slot and PCI-E 4.

These new motherboards will support up to 24 PCI-E 5 lanes, 14 USB ports with speeds of up to 20 Gbps, Wi-Fi 6E, & Bluetooth 5.2. Furthermore, AMD 600 motherboards will be able to handle up to four HDMI 2.1 or DisplayPort 2 connections owing to the new integrated graphics.

Despite AMD’s shift to a new socket design, Ryzen 7000 CPUs will retain the same socket size and fully support AM4 cooling.

Will the AMD Ryzen 7000 series be faster than Intel? 

This is likely the most frequently asked question on the internet since the Intel Core 12th generation arrived in late 2021. The newest Ryzen CPUs are to exceed the current generation Intel line. However, according to Wccftech, team blue is already hard at work on the 13th gen ‘Raptor Lake’. The only thing we know for certain is that both sides will become extremely competitive.

Will Ryzen 7000 beat Intel?

AMD unveiled its Ryzen 7000 CPUs at Computex 2022. The chips are based on AMD’s new Zen 4 architecture. Which the company claims is up to 31% quicker than the top Intel CPUs in certain workloads.


On paper, they appear to be doing well. However, while AMD seldom fails to deliver on its promises, we must still wait for the specific chips to get in testing for performance, let alone pricing. So, while we may presume that the lineups and pricing will remain the same, we can’t bank on it, especially after such a tumultuous couple of years.

We also need to explain that Intel will very probably respond to AMD sooner rather than later. The business is already hard at work on its 13th generation Raptor Lake chips. Which you can expect later in 2022, maybe a few weeks or months after AMD’s.
