New and exciting news we have to offer today with AMD, as the launch of the Ryzen 7000 within the Raphael-X microarchitecture will not be the only Zen 4 processor hitting the market this year. In a surprising movement, those of Lisa Su want to recover the crown of gaming and for that they will have to launch the Ryzen 7000 X3D before 2023that is, they will be launched by the end of the year.
It looks like Intel is coming in strong, it looks like Raptor Lake won’t just be a facelift after all, and although there are rumors about the most varied (possible 6 GHz?) AMD isn’t going to be outdone. In the AMD ADF 2022 It was the company itself that commented on something quite interesting that might have gone unnoticed due to the context and timing of it being said.
The Ryzen 7000 X3D before 2023, Intel check or equal forces?
Intel’s change in architecture to a heterogeneous architecture will have complicated consequences in the gaming sector. Alder Lake undoubtedly surprised, took the crown, turned the table upside down and in one fell swoop the Reds’ advantage was wiped out. Intel Forced Continuity with Socket LGA1700 and EUV scanners coming is going to give AMD encouragement, and that could be a big mistake.
As seen at minute 2:47:38, the company makes some interesting claims:
“We’re proud of what v-cache technology does for us, and we’ll be introducing it to the Ryzen 7000 series later this year.”
Clearer, water. Therefore, the reasons for AMD and TSMC to advance the Raphael-X delays and its Ryzen 7000 are none other than opening a gap for what will be the presentation of the highest range for gaming at the end of the year. But at the same time, it raises plausible doubt…
AMD says goodbye to HEDT CPUs for users with two Ryzen CPU lines?
If we think about it, AMD can target two different sectors of the market. One would be focused on gaming, yes, but also on video design and editing due to its higher end frame rate. The other market would be pure gaming, with lower frequencies and 3D virtual cachewhich will increase performance by at least double digits.
It’s a theory that at first surely wouldn’t be presented like that, but would be given as Zen 4 with great fanfare, launching and publicizing the architecture and its CPUs as gaming and multitasking, but giving way to Ryzen 7000 X3D. These would surely not be named in said presentation and they will surely have their own event.
When it comes to price, Intel seems to have the upper hand. Pricing is competitive, and you’ll be toying with the Core 12 trump card at irresistible prices, putting the Core 13, in theory, below the cost of an AMD equivalent. That’s why AMD’s decision also makes sense: it cannibalizes sales with Zen 4 and when the Core 13 is presented, the Ryzen 7000 X3D would be almost ready, putting Intel under control.
