amd today unveiled new information regarding its new line of high-performance desktop processors, the Ryzen 7000processors that release a new socket, the AMD AM5 (LGA1718) to make the most of its new architecture AMD Zen4 with a manufacturing process 5nm from TSMC with TDPs of up to 170W, being one of the greatest advances adding integrated graphics AMD RDNA2, as well as the use of other next-gen components such as RAM DDR5 and interface PCI Express 5.0. Despite the great modernization that all this entails, AM4 cooling systems will be backwards compatible.
Due to the many changes, a new generation of motherboards is also required, which will be based on the chipsets AMD X670 Extreme (AMD X670E, designed for overclockers), the AMD X670where PCIe 5.0 connectivity for the GPU or SSD will be optional, and a AMD B650 designed for budget motherboards where PCIe 5.0 will be limited to SSD.
Motherboards using these chips will support up to 24x PCIe 5.0 lanes (GPU + storage), up to 14x USB ports @ 20Gbps, WiFI 6E + Bluetooth 5.2 connectivity, and up to four video outputs in the form of HDMI 2.1 and DisplayPort 2 to take advantage of integrated graphics.
The first AMD processors to exceed 5.00 GHz
Unfortunately, the company didn’t reveal any details regarding the models and their specs, but at least it showed an unknown CPU running the Ghostwire: Toyko at a frequency slightly above 5.50 GHz (5520.3GHz to be exact), which is a huge step up for the company given that one of its Ryzen processors had never managed to hit 5.00GHz. Now he not only manages to break down that barrier, but it destroys it reaching frequencies that until now were only imaginable in an Intel processor.
AMD Ryzen 7000 versus an Intel Core i9-12900K
To finish up the little lace, the company compared a 16-core, 32-thread AMD Ryzen 7000 processor with the 16-core, 24-thread Intel Core i9-12900K, and the result was there, the new AMD CPUs leave no options. to the Intel Alder Lake processor, because with a Blender test, the company indicates that its processor is up to 31% faster think about content creators.
