After a lot of speculation, we finally got real information about the upcoming new Ryzen 7000 desktop processors, which are somewhat “official” and come directly from AMD.
AMD CEO Lisa Su revealed that sales of the new generation of desktop processors will begin this quarter. According to the sources of the Wcftech website, AMD is planning to rearrange the Ryzen 7000 processors as early as August 29, while the first reviews with tests will be released on September 13, and the official sales of the first models will begin on September 15. What will they be like?
As a hint, a leaked list from AMD’s marketing materials mentions the AMD Ryzen 9 7950X, Ryzen 9 7900X, Ryzen 7 7700X and Ryzen 5 7600X models. Whether all these models will be available immediately from September 15 is not clear, but the most powerful and most expensive models will certainly go on sale first.
If AMD released the mentioned pieces, it would have the highest 16-core, 12-core, 8-core and 6-core on offer right from the start. Due to the new Zen 4 architecture, 5nm production technology and support for DDR5 and PCI Express 5.0, the performance should be much higher than the current generation.
Initially, more expensive motherboards with the new X670 and X670E chipsets should appear on sale, followed by the cheaper B650 and B650E a few weeks later.
