Recently, AMD has officially announced the release of the new AMD Ryzen 7000 Series desktop CPUsPowered by AMD’s all-new Zen 4 microarchitecture, powered by TSMC’s optimized, high-performance N5 5nm process node.
The company’s new lineup of AMD Ryzen 7000 Series Zen 4 CPUs offers desktop users a total of four (x4) different models of CPUs, which can feature a minimum of 6 cores and 12 threads up to an amazing 16 cores and 32 threads. . , depending of course which CPU model you decide to use.
Furthermore, the clock speed frequencies offered by AMD Ryzen 7000 Series CPUs can be extended up to 5.7GHz, along with a large cache of 80MB.
With such powerful specifications, AMD was confident enough to demand its official press release The 16-Core Ryzen 9 7950X – the company’s top flagship model of the newly released Ryzen 7000 Series desktop processor family – is currently the world’s fastest and most advanced PC processor available for purchase, and PC enthusiasts, hardcore gamers and content creators alike can Whether expect them to deliver “dominant and market-leading performance, combined with leading-edge energy efficiency,” as the company proudly states in its official announcement.
We’ll now take a deeper look at each of the four CPUS (x4) that are part of AMD’s newly released Ryzen 7000 Series desktop processor family.
AMD Ryzen 7000 Series Zen 4 Processors – Specifications
From AMD’s newly released lower model Ryzen 7000 Series Zen 4 CPUs, we’ve got the Ryzen 5 7600X, which features six cores, 12 threads, a standard CPU speed of 4.7GHz and a top speed of 5.3GHz, to 38MB cache side, 105W TDP (Thermal Design Power – the maximum heat a CPU can use in watts).
The next model will be the Ryzen 7 7700X, which features 8 cores, 16 threads, a standard CPU speed of 4.5GHz, and a boosted maximum speed of 5.4GHz, along with 40MB cache and 105W TDP.
Next up is the Ryzen 9 7900X, which features 12 cores, 24 threads, a standard CPU speed of 4.7GHz and a maximum speed of 5.6GHz, along with 76MB cache, and a 170W TDP.
Last but not least, we have the Ryzen 9 7950X, which, as mentioned earlier, is AMD’s top flagship model of the newly launched Ryzen 7000 Series Desktop processor lineup. The Ryzen 9 7950X features a total of 16 cores, 32 threads, a standard CPU speed of 4.5GHz, and a maximum speed of 5.7GHz, along with an 80MB cache and 170W TDP.
Zen 4 microarchitecture and standards
As most PC enthusiasts were already expecting, AMD’s new Zen 4 micro-architecture was expected to be a huge step forward for AMD, and from the specs announced by the company, it certainly appears that PC users have absolutely no reason to be disappointed.
With the release of the new Zen 4 Microarchitecture, AMD announced the performance gains offered by the Zen 4-based Ryzen 7000 series by specifically highlighting game and content creation as the two scenarios that PC users will benefit most from.
As mentioned before, AMD’s new Zen 4 Microarchitecture has been upgraded to take advantage of TSMC’s improved, high-performance N5 5nm processing node, which is exactly what allows AMD’s new Ryzen 7000 Series Zen 4 CPUs to use up to 16 cores and 32 threads, Just like their top flagship model – the Ryzen 9 7950X processor – should offer.
So, when it comes to the level of performance offered by the newly released AMD Ryzen 7000 Series CPUs, we’ll mostly be highlighting the performance improvements offered by the AMD Ryzen 9 7950X, with a short side note about the Ryzen 5 7600X at the end.
Taking advantage of the new Zen 4 micro-architecture, compared to AMD’s previously released Ryzen 9 5950X CPU (which was part of the last generation released prior to the Ryzen 7000 series), the AMD Ryzen 7950X enables single-core performance improvement of up to +29% over its predecessor, 44%~45% more computing (i.e. faster processing) for POV Ray creators, up to 15% faster gaming performance on select titles, and up to 27% better performance per watt .
At the top of the stack, AMD’s new Ryzen 9 7950X 16-Core processor also delivers 57% better content creation performance in V-Ray Render than the competition (such as the Intel Core i9-12900K processor).
From various AMD test trials of the newly released Ryzen 7000 Series processors, the company was able to achieve up to a 47% improvement in power efficiency over the Intel Alder Lake processor.
In fact, even AMD’s Ryzen 5 7600X 6-Core processor (which is the lowest model in their Ryzen 7000 series) can still provide users with 5% faster gaming performance on average across select high-spec Intel Core i9 titles. 12900K processor.
However, note that Intel’s upcoming 13th generation CPUs are also expected to offer some big improvements, so keep that in mind.
Of course, to use any of AMD’s newly released Ryzen 7000 Series Zen 4 CPUs, you’ll obviously need a compatible motherboard.
While AMD also revealed four new Socket AM5 (x4) motherboard models along with announcing its Ryzen 7000 Series desktop processors, the company indicated that all new Ryzen 7000 Series Zen 4 CPUs will still be compatible with older AM4 motherboards. During, she indicated that she expected them to “coexist for some time.”
This means that customers who buy any of AMD’s new Ryzen 7000 CPUs aren’t necessarily required to buy a new motherboard just to be able to use those new CPUs, which is great, frankly.
However, know that AMD’s new Socket AM5 motherboard models will also add support for premium features like DDR5 memory and PCIe Gen 5.
Other Notable Features/Functions
6nm I/O Die
In addition to the core, the new AMD Ryzen 7000 Series processors will also have an all-new 6nm I/O die, which primarily enables hardware-accelerated video encoding/decoding, graphics light work, and also multi-display support.
Pricing and availability
In terms of price tags for AMD’s new Ryzen 7000 Series Zen 4 CPUs, know that prices will start at just $299 for the Ryzen 5 7600X, with the next Ryzen 7 7700X at just $399, then the Ryzen 9 7900X at $549, and finally the Ryzen processor 9 7950X 16-Cores/32-Thread high-end, which will cost $699 (which is $100 cheaper than its predecessor, keep in mind).
You can find all AMD Ryzen 7000 Series Zen 4 CPUs already available for purchase at Antonline’s official shopping pagewhich will serve as a major retailer for AMD’s new range of CPUs.
