AMD's Ryzen 7000 series slide deck has leaked ahead of its official reveal
Thanks to HD Technologia we have gained access to what appears to be AMD's official slide deck for their Ryzen 7000 series launch stream, revealing the expected performance levels of the company's upcoming Zen 4 desktop processors, their prices, and their specifications.
AMD's Ryzen 7000 series processors are expected to be available on September 27th, with their flagship Ryzen 9 7950X processor launching for $699 USD. That's $100 lower than AMD's Ryzen 9 5950X launch MSRP. With AMD's Ryzen 7000 series processors, AMD will be offering users the same CPU core counts as the their Ryzen 5000 series counterparts. That means that AMD's performance uplifts this generation will come from clock speed enhancements, not more CPU cores.
With AMD's Ryzen 7000 series, AMD's processors will be receiving significant clock speed enhancements and an increase in TDP for higher-end models. These changes will enable higher all-core boost clock speeds for AMD's Ryzen 9 models, and single-threaded boost clock speeds will be raised significantly. All models below have boost clock speeds of over 5 GHz
IPC enhancements and 5GHz+ frequencies
With their Zen 4 processors, AMD are promising single-threaded performance gains of up to 29%, with this performance coming from a 13% IPC uplift when compared to Zen 3 and a significant increase in single-core boost clock speeds. Ryzen 7000 series CPUs have boost clock speeds that are up to 800 MHz higher than their Zen 3 counterparts.
When compared to its last-generation counterpart, AMD's Ryzen 9 7950X can deliver users a significant performance leap in games and creator/productivity workloads alike. Below, AMD has showcased up to 48% performance gains in creator workloads and up to 35% performance gains in gaming workloads.
Even without V-Cache, AMD's Ryzen 7000 series processors appear to deliver huge performance leaps in gaming workloads. In theory, things will get even better for AMD once they start adding V-Cache to their Zen 4 CPU models.
When compared to Intel's i9-12900K processor, AMD's Ryzen 9 7950X appears to be 57% faster in Chaos V-Ray and 47% more energy efficient. With this benchmark, AMD dominated Intel in two important metrics, though Intel is likely to regain some of this lost ground with their next-generation Raptor Lake series processors.
AMD is claiming gaming dominance over Intel, stating that their Ryzen 5 7600X is 5% faster than Intel's flagship i9-12900K processor in games on average. Note that AMD's higher-end Zen 4 models should offer gamers even more performance, a fact that should place AMD's Ryzen 7000 on the wish lists of many gamers.
Should AMD add their V-Cache technology to their Ryzen 7000 series processors, they will be able to deliver even larger performance gains when compared to Intel's 12th generation i9. If AMD wants gamers to take anything away from this, it's that they lowest-end launch day Zen 4 CPU can best Intel's current flagship in games.
If these leaked slides are legitimate, AMD has successfully delivered a lot more than many enthusiasts expected with Zen 4. AMD's gaming gains over their Ryzen 5000 series are colossal, and the future addition of V-Cache should enable even greater performance gains in the future. We already know that Zen 4 supports V-Cache with Genoa-X, so we expect to see Ryzen 7000X3D processors at some point in the future.
