AMD has announced that on August 29, it will host the launch of its Ryzen 7000 “Zen 4” CPUs, AM5 platform, and DDR5 EXPO memory. In addition, presentations by AMD CEO Dr. Lisa Su, CTO Mark Papermaster, and other executives will be broadcast live during the event.
AMD Confirms Ryzen 7000 “Zen 4” CPU, AM5 Platform, DDR5 EXPO Memory and will be Livestreamed on August 29
Since we announced the event and launching dates for mentioned products, folks who have been reading our updates wouldn’t be surprised by this confirmation. The AMD schedule is as follows, according to our previous information-
- Product announcement- It will take place on August 29, 2022, at 7:00 p.m. ET/1:00 AM CET/7:00 a.m. TW.
- Press embargo-September 13, 2022, at 9 a.m. ET, 3 p.m. CET, and 9 p.m. TW
- Sales embargo-September 15, 2022, at 9 a.m. ET, 3 p.m. CET, and 9 p.m. TW, sales embargo.
The AMD press announcement states that the conference will focus on next-generation PC products, particularly the AMD Ryzen 7000 “Zen 4” CPUs, the brand-new AM5 platform, and the DDR5 EXPO DRAM, which will be equally as crucial as the CPUs themselves. Now that there is some misunderstanding on the occurrence, we shall clarify it. The event will only highlight information on the following items’ specifications, costs, and sales debut. Even though the products will be revealed, they won’t go on sale until September.
The AMD Ryzen 7000 “Zen 4” Desktop CPUs were expected to go on selling on September 27, a whole month just after AMD Ryzen 7000 “Zen 4” Desktop CPUs were expected to be announced later this month. As per our previous study. Motherboard distributors also noted that the AMD Ryzen 7000 “Zen 4” Desktop CPUs were expected to go on selling on September 15.
Now that AMD has confirmed another of their earlier release dates, which we first disclosed earlier in the month, it is entirely feasible that the company will stay to its original release schedule, which would be fantastic for customers, or they can start selling the products on the same day that Intel announces their 13th Gen Raptor Lake Desktop CPUs. But, of course, only AMD can verify that throughout the presentation itself.
We were the first to publish the dates of September 15 and September 27, so if AMD decides to conduct selling on either of those dates, that will be proof of what we stated.
Expected features of the AMD Ryzen “Zen 4” desktop CPU is
- Brand-new Zen 4 CPU Cores (IPC / Architectural Improvements)
- Up to 16 Zen 4 Cores and 32 Threads
- Over 15% Performance Uplift In Single-Threaded Apps
- TSMC’s newest 5nm manufacturing node has a 6nm IOD.
- 25% Increase in Power Efficiency Compared to Zen 3
- Boost in Performance Compared to Zen 3 of >35%
- 8–10% Increase in Initiatives Per Clock (IPC) Compared to Zen 3
- AM5 Platform Support Using LGA1718 Socket
- Motherboards New X670E, X670, B650E, and B650
- Capability for Dual-Channel DDR5 Memory
- Native (JEDEC) DDR5-5600 speeds as high as
- 28 PCIe lanes (CPU Exclusive)
- 105–120W TDPs, with an upper bound of 170W
It’s also exciting to know that Corsair, in addition to AMD, will have several AMD Ryzen 7000 PCs and DDR5 RAM with “EXPO” technology prepared for an announcement later this month. The Streaming will undoubtedly be held here, so check in on August 29 for a tune of excellent AMD news.
