The moment of truth: Ryzen 7000 live stream tonight [Erinnerung]

Ryzen 7000: AMD confirms live stream at the end of August, "new era of desktop PC performance"

from Thilo Bayer
Reminder: After weeks and months of leaks and rumours, AMD will present technical details and prices for the Ryzen 7000 today. For German viewers, the live stream starts a little late.

Memory: Things are about to start at AMD. You can follow the live stream here:

All AMD fans shouldn’t do much tonight: Around 1 a.m. our time, AMD’s live stream starts around Ryzen 7000 aka Zen 4, Socket AM5 and X670.

Live stream tonight

The YouTube premiere was still there on the AMD channel not activated, but it should only be a few hours until the embedding is ready. AMD itself speaks of the presentation of next-generation PC products under the motto “Together we advance PCs”. AMD CEO Lisa Su, who always makes a prominent appearance on such important occasions, will also feature Chief Technology Officer Mark Papermaster. Details of the Zen 4 architecture, on which the upcoming Ryzen 7000 processors are based, and the AM5 platform are promised. DDR5 and PCI-Express 5 are also discussed because they are supposed to herald the basis for “a new era of high-performance desktop PCs”.

It seems certain that AMD will introduce a total of four processors since they were already on the official website. It can be expected that AMD will not only present the technical key data of the CPUs tonight, but also the dates for tests and purchases as well as the prices. It is assumed that AMD will present Ryzen 7000 CPUs with six, eight, twelve and sixteen cores. The Ryzen 9 7950X, the Ryzen 9 7900X, the Ryzen 7 7700X and the Ryzen 5 7600X were named. The Ryzen 9 CPUs are said to have a TDP range of 105 to 170 watts, Ryzen 5 and 7 should end up at 65-125 watts. It is manufactured in TSMC’s 5 nm process. Unusual for Ryzen: The I/O die, manufactured in 6 nm, not only houses the controllers for DDR5 and PCI-Express 5, but also an RDNA-2 graphics unit. How powerful this turns out to be will be aired tonight.

It is still unclear how quickly SSDs for PCI Express 5 will come onto the market. So far there have already been some announcements and showcases from the manufacturers, but a specific date has not yet been set. Samsung even presented a high-end model for PCI Express 4, the SSD 990 Pro. So it could well be that PCI-Express 5 on Socket AM5 will remain without any concrete benefit for the time being, especially since no corresponding graphics cards have been announced yet.
