AMD Ryzen 7000, everything we know so far

AMD Ryzen 7000

AMD, through an official announcement, has confirmed the arrival of the new Zen 4 architecture, which will be the backbone of the new series of Ryzen 7000 processors, taking another big step forward in the race to the most performing processor: the improvements made by this architecture will allow the new CPUs to compete with Intel's new Alder Lake and Raptor Lake, managing, in all probability, to position themselves even higher than the competitors.

The main strength can be certainly find in the 5 nm production process, more performing than the 10 nm SuperFin (now called Intel 7) used by Intel, which has decided instead to focus a lot on architecture, for the moment unprecedented on laptops and desktops (if we do not consider the MacBook Air M1 and the MacBook Pro M1, on which Apple has already thought about moving forward), big.LITTLE (which, however, does not seem to be, at least as stated by AMD, a priority on the arch desktop itectures), which allows to combine high-performance cores with low-consumption cores, while guaranteeing power and energy savings in a single chip.

Between pandemics and problems various, AMD's roadmap has undergone various changes, leading the release of AMD Ryzen 7000 processors with Zen 4 architecture to slip into the second half of 2022. There is also a current of thought that suggests that CPUs will be presented alongside RDNA 3 video cards: we do not know if this is really the case, but no doubt it would be really challenging for AMD to manage the launch of the new Ryzen 7000 and the new Radeon RX at the same time. 7000, both based on new architectures. In any case, according to the MilkyWay @ Home website, which managed to gain access to a pre-production sample of the new CPUs, the wait should really be winding down.

On the other hand, we must also consider the fact that AMD has achieved, after 15 years, the same number of desktop processor sales as Intel, providing the same company with one more reason to return to the market with a sort of "heavy armament", which can be translated into support for DDR5 RAM and PCIe 5.0 SSDs (both not supported on the current Zen 3 architecture, but which, in all likelihood, we will see on the new Zen 4 instead).


The only confirms that with regard to the specifications of the new Ryzen 7000 processor series, it concerns the aforementioned 5 nm production process, obviously managed by TSMC. Other improvements that could be introduced, at least based on the hopes of the community, concern the increase in the number of cores both for the consumer line, thus reaching 24, and for the EPYC line, allowing it to reach the pair 128 cores / 256 threads. | ); }

Let's move on to the performance analysis from a purely qualitative point of view: the introduction of the new Zen 4 architecture on the Ryzen 7000, together with the use of a production node more advanced from 5 nm, they will guarantee an increase in transistor density by as much as 87%, which should correspond to a consequent increase in performance of around 40% resp. based on the Zen 3 architecture. As already mentioned, the number of instructions per clock (IPC) should be 25% higher, while, in the event that AMD prefers to stay on PCIe 4.0 technology, the number of lanes should be increased from 24 to 28. According to what reported by ChipsandCheese, on some processors we may be able to see a frequency, on the multi-core, of even 5.0 GHz: enthusiasts know that such a result is literally monstrous, perhaps managing to attract even the most skeptical about it, if not Intel's loyalists.
