According to a new report, AMD is on track to launch its Ryzen 7000 processors and AM5 platform in September. In fact, the company may put its new CPUs on sale at an earlier date. But before the back-to-school season, the current Ryzen 5000 series processors should be out of stock.
Previously, rumors were circulating that Zen 4-based Ryzen CPUs would be released on September 15. Industry sources from DigiTimes also pointed to mid-September, similarly. As a matter of fact, in the light of the information confirmed by two separate sources, we can expect retail sales to start in September.
AMD’s next-generation Ryzen 7000 series ‘Raphael’ processors are powered by the all-new Zen 4 architecture. 600 series chipsets will be here soon along with Socket AM5. A number of new technologies will also be supported with the new platform, including DDR5 memory and PCIe 5.0 interface. Without forgetting, we also expect advanced overclocking technologies on the RAM side.
The new CPU die is manufactured using TSMC’s N5 process technology and we’ve seen frequency speeds as high as 5.5 GHz before. As an additional piece of information, the I/O chip will be manufactured using TSMC’s 6nm process, reducing power consumption over past 12nm chips.
