AMD has finally introduced the new Ryzen 7000 series “Raphael” Zen 4. AMD is self-confident and shows that its own processors should be well ahead of the competition from Intel.
AMD officially presented the new Ryzen 7000 processors on the night of August 29th to August 30th, 2022. In addition to four new processors, information about new features such as DDR5 and the new socket AM5 was also shared.
During the presentation, AMD was quite self-confident and didn’t shy away from direct comparisons to Intel, even if the name was never mentioned, but only talked about “competition”. You can also watch the entire 30-minute stream from last night directly on YouTube:
The Ryzen 5 7600X is said to be faster than Intel’s currently fastest processor
What exactly was shown? AMD presented a total of 4 processors last evening:
- Ryzen 9 7950X, 16/32, 5.7GHz, 80MB Cache, 170W TDP, $699
- Ryzen 9 7900X, 12/24, 5.6GHz, 76MB Cache, 170W TDP, $549
- Ryzen 7 7700X, 8/16, 5.4GHz, 40MB Cache, 105W TDP, $399
- Ryzen 5 7600X, 5.3GHz, 38MB Cache, 105W TDP, $299
The first performance values of the new processors were also shown. The comparison with Intel’s i9-12900K is particularly interesting here. This is currently Intel’s fastest processor that the competition has to offer.
What did the first benchmark show? In the example of F1 2022 and 5 other games, it was shown at the press conference that AMD’s slowest CPU from the 7000 series, the Ryzen 5 7600X, should already be 11% faster on average than Intel’s i9-12900K.
However, the figures are the official values from AMD. So far, no independent testers have been able to test or try out the processors. Here you have to wait until the release if you want independent results.
When can you buy Ryzen 7000? The Ryzen 7000 series will be released on September 27th, just under a month from now. At the start there should also be the right mainboards with AM5 socket and DDR5 memory.
PCIe 5.0 SSDs should officially be available in stores from November 2022.
