After Intel launched its new 12th generation Alder Lake processors, AMD focused on the development of its next products to respond to the rival’s news.
Thus, the chip giant has now announced its new AMD Ryzen 7000 processors with Zen 4 architecture. And one of the interesting features is the fact that the new CPUs manage to exceed the speed of 5.5 GHz in games.
AMD officially announces Ryzen 7000 processors
It was today (23), during the Computex 2022 event that AMD presented officially its new and long-awaited line of processors Ryzen 7000. The chips are based on the Zen 4 architecture of the North American company and will hit the market between the months of September and November this year. It was the manufacturer's own CEO, Dr. Lisa Su, who announced the new chips that bring with them many interesting news, including the ability to exceed the speed of 5.5 GHz.
The executive confirmed what many already suspected that the new CPUs will use the AM5 socket, instead of the AM4 that has been around for 5 years. According to the details, the new AMD Ryzen 7000 will be manufactured in a 5nm manufacturing process and these will then be the first computer processors produced in this manufacturing process. The chips will also support DDR5 and PCIe 5.0 memories.
You can see the announcement of the new AMD processing chips in the following video:
And so that the consumer can have a better perception of the power of the Ryzen 7000, the company showed a part of the Ghostwire: Tokyo game, which was running with the CPU at a speed above 5.5 GHz, more specifically 5520.3 MHz. There was still room for a brief performance comparison between these new AMD processors and the Intel Core i9-12900K.
At the event, new motherboards were also announced to support the manufacturer's new chips.
The new Zen 4 architecture will allow a 15% increase in performance compared to Zen 3. In addition, it will also support up to 170 W of power with the new motherboards. The new CPUs will be compatible with the B650, X670 and X670E line of motherboards.
