It’s official: Ryzen 7000 (“Raphael”) is scheduled to be released this quarter. AMD openly confirmed this during a discussion with investors.
AMD also held a conference call with investors during the course of announcing its latest earnings results. Among other things, the upcoming processor generation Ryzen 7000 was addressed. AMD boss Dr. Lisa Su said the following:
“Looking ahead, we’re on track to launch our all-new 5nm Ryzen 7000 desktop processors and AM5 platforms later this quarter with leadership performance in gaming and content creation.”
This makes it clear that the new processors should appear no later than September 30, when the third quarter ends.
AMD Ryzen 7000 aka “Raphael” is based on the new Zen 4 architecture and also requires new motherboards with an AM5 socket. There is DDR5 memory and PCIe 5.0. Thanks to the new 5nm manufacturing process from TSMC, the next generation should be significantly more efficient.
Apparently, Lisa Su also commented on the upcoming graphics cards, the Radeon RX 7000 series:
“While we expect the gaming graphics market to be down in the third quarter, we remain focused on executing our GPU roadmap, including launching our high-end RDNA 3 GPU later this year.”
But that’s not all: AMD and five manufacturers (ASUS, ASRock, Biostar, Gigabyte and MSI) want to talk about the AM5 motherboards and the new chipsets on August 4th, 2022. The event is called “A Showcase of The New AM5 Motherboards”.
The website wccftech.com has learned from its own sources that the process should look like this. A word of warning: This leak can, but does not have to be correct.
- AM5 Motherboard Showcase on August 4th
- Presentation on August 30th
- Test embargo on September 13th
- Sales start on September 15th
