Don’t perhaps construct a new PC immediately away. AMD has just revealed that the next-generation Ryzen 7000 processors will be unveiled on August 29. At this time, AMD will hopefully stop teasering us with ambiguous but promising Zen 4 upgrades and reveal some genuine chips for our devices.
What is already known: the Ryzen 7000 processors are the first 5nm-based PC chips, the first AMD desktop chips to surge above 5GHz, and depending on the motherboard you choose, the AM5 motherboard platform is the first AMD platform to enable DDR5 and PCIe 5.0 out of the box.
Oh, and AMD is finally, understandably, removing compatibility with the durable AM4 architecture and moving away from pins on the CPU, so you’ll need to buy a new motherboard. (You may still bring your AM4 cooler with you.) And yes, the lid on the new Ryzen 7000 desktop CPUs truly does resemble a crown.
Since Ryzen 6000 was only intended for laptops and other mobile devices, in case you don’t follow AMD carefully, they will be the first desktop chips from AMD since its well-liked Ryzen 5000 series. AMD plans to ship some Ryzen 7000 CPUs for both “intense gaming laptops” and thin and light devices as early as next year, proving that the business isn’t only switching between laptops and desktops.
