Less than 24 hours until the launch of the AMD event, where it will present the new generation's desktop processors, the Ryzen 7000 series chips. The novels will offer a new architecture, use a brand-new platform, and many other benefits. The launch will take place at the following night, starting at 2:00 Moscow time on August 30.
AMD has already provided some details of the new developments in May. It is known that the Ryzen 7000 processors will be based on the new Zen 4 architecture, and their core crystals will be run in 5 nm process. Yes, the new ones will inherit from the predecessors a set of several crystals. A separate crystal with input-output interfaces will be executed in 6 nm process.
From the AMD's previous annotations, it is known that architectural changes will only increase the IPC by 8 to 10 percent. But the shift from 7 to 5 nm of the process has resulted in a significant increase in tactical frequencies. The AMD itself promised that Ryzen 7000 would automatically accelerate above 5.5 gHz. Obviously, this is a dynamic acceleration of individual kernels, but still the level is impressive. And the rumors at all pointed to the frequency of 5.7 gHz.
As a result, single-nuclear productivity has to grow by more than 15% and total productivity will grow by more than 35%. And the AMD has also promised a significant improvement in energy efficiency, with productivity per watt increasing by more than 25%. The TDP level will rise to 170 W, which is markedly higher than the previous maximum of 125 W.
It is expected that AMD will present only four models. This will be the 16-nuclear Ryzen 97950X, the 12-nuclear Ryzen 979000X, the 8-nuclear Ryzen 777000X and the 6-nuclear Ryzen 57600X. Of course, SMT will be supported in all cases. Support for AVX-512 instructions is also reported.
A notable feature of the new AMD Ryzen generation will be the availability of integrated graphics in all desktop models, previously only in the Ryzen G Series desktop chips, and the RDNA 2 architecture will be applied.
Another major difference between Ryzen 7,000 and the predecessors is that they will be working with a brand-new Socket AM5 processor split. This is a LGA-type sketch with 1718 contacts. The new sketch provided support for the latest DDR5 operational memory, as well as the PCIe 5.0 interface for both the video card and the M.2 SSD.
AMD has submitted three chipsets for new motherboards with Socket AM5: flagship X670E, powerful X670 and medium B650. AMD producers have already submitted many different motherboards for the coming Ryzen 7000. By the way, a new processor split will be compatible with most of Socket AM4 coils.
