Expect AMD's Ryzen 7000 series Zen 4 CPUs to launch in September
AMD has confirmed that their Ryzen 7000 series of Zen 4 processors will launch this quarter, and the latest leaks from WCCFTECH has revealed what could be the release, review, and reveal dates of AMD's next-generation Zen 4 processors.
If these leaks are correct, AMD's planning to launch their Zen 4 family of processors on September 15th, with reviews coming two days earlier on September 13th. AMD is said to be revealing these processors on August 29th, detailing the CPU models that AMD plans to release next month and their retail pricing.
Recent reports have suggested that AMD plans to release Ryzen 5 7600X, Ryzen 7 7700X, Ryzen 9 7900X, and Ryzen 9 7950X processors this September, offering customers CPU models with six, eight, twelve, and sixteen cores respectively. AMD is also said to be preparing Zen 4 CPUs with V-Cache, which will launch at a later date.
What should we expect from Zen 4?
AMD has released a lot of information about Zen 4 and little in the way of concrete performance data. Above, AMD has claimed that their Zen 4 CPUs will offer users a 15+% single-threaded performance uplift, and below AMD has revealed that Zen 4 can deliver a greater than 25% increase in performance per-watt, and a greater than 35% performance uplift in a multi-threaded Cinebench workload (when comparing two 16-core CPUs).
AMD's Zen 4 architecture has four major (known) advancements over Zen 3, offering users 2x as much L2 cache per core, 5+ GHz core clock speeds, support for an expanded instruction set (which includes AVX-512), and IPC enhancements that increase single-threaded and multi-threaded performance further. Additionally, AMD's AM5 platform also adds support for DDR5 memory and PCIe 5.0 connectivity, both of which can deliver additional performance enhancements.
Elsewhere, AMD has listed their Zen 4 architecture as delivering an 8-10% IPC increase over Zen 3, and significantly more memory bandwidth per core thanks to their support of DDR5 memory. Currently, it is unknown how AMD's changes with Zen 4 will impact the Ryzen 7000 series' performance in important consumer workloads, like gaming, though we expect AMD to discuss this soon.
This month, we expect AMD to discuss their Zen 4 Ryzen 7000 series processors and AM5 CPU platform in a lot more detail. We will be discussing these announcements as they are made.
