AMD had confirmed plans to launch its Ryzen 7000 “Raphael” desktop processors this fall, but a new leak has apparently revealed the exact date.
A new leak has apparently confirmed the exact launch date of AMDRyzen 7000 desktop processors. The chipmaker had previously confirmed that its next-gen desktop chips would launch this fall, but had yet to officially confirm exact dates. During its Q1 2022 earnings call in early May, AMD confirmed plans to launch a slew of Zen 4 “Ryzen 7000” products, including “Raphael” for desktops, “Dragon Range” for laptops from gaming enthusiasts and “Phoenix” for thin and light gaming laptops. Raphael desktop chips will be aimed at enthusiasts and serious gamers looking for top performance from their computers.
AMD has been teasing its next-gen desktop processors for the past few months and has already made some interesting claims about them ahead of launch. At Computex 2022 in May, AMD showcased its Zen 4-based Ryzen 7000 Series desktop processors built with 5nm process technology for the new Socket AM5 platform. The company also claimed that these chips will deliver a 15% performance boost over Zen 3. The new chips will also support DDR5 memory, so some of the performance boost could be due to the transition to the newer and faster standard.
According to a new Wccftech report, AMD will unveil its Ryzen 7000-series desktop processors on August 29 before making them available for purchase from September 15. It is, however, unclear if the event will be media-only or if it will be for mass consumption and live streaming for viewers around the world. However, since this is an official product announcement, it’s likely to be the last.
Several Ryzen 7000 processors are expected to launch
According to an earlier leak from AMD, the company will announce at least 4 different Ryzen 7000 processors at launch. This includes the 8-core, 12-thread Ryzen 9 7950X, the 12-core, 24-thread Ryzen 9 7900X, the 8-core, 16-thread Ryzen 7 7700X, and the 6-core, 12-thread Ryzen 5 7600X. Along with CPUs, the event will also see many of AMD’s partner motherboard manufacturers showcasing their X670 and X670 Extreme motherboards.
Again, it’s not immediately clear which companies were invited to showcase their products at the event, but major card makers like Asus, Biostar, Gigabyte, and MSI have spoken at previous AMD events, suggesting that at least some of them might be present. at the upcoming event as well. At Computex 2022, AMD listed the names of some of the upcoming flagship AM5 motherboards including Asrock X670E Taichi, Asus ROG Crosshair X670E Extreme, Biostar X670E Valkyrie, Gigabyte X670E AORUS Xtreme, and MSI MEG X670 ACE. It can therefore be expected that at least some of the aforementioned maps will be detailed at AMDthe event coming later this month.
