AMD Ryzen 7000 desktop processors and the AM5 platform are highly anticipated by many as it is an all-new ecosystem designed for the next generation of gamers and content creators. The AMD Ryzen 7000 desktop processors will first bring gamers the company’s brand new Zen 4 core technology based on the 5nm process node and will also roll out the new AM5 platform which offers a host of new features such as DDR5 and PCIe Gen 5.0 support among several other technologies.

According to DigiTimes industry sources, AMD is expected to introduce its next-gen Ryzen 7000 desktop processors and AM5 platform as early as September 2022. That would mean the launch could take place within the next four months, but that Said, AMD is also expected to reveal more details at Computex 2022, which will be a major event for Zen 4.

AMD Ryzen ‘Zen 4’ Desktop Processor Expected Features:

  • New Zen 4 processor cores (IPC / architectural improvements)
  • Brand New TSMC 5nm Process Node with 6nm IOD
  • Supported on AM5 platform with LGA1718 socket
  • Dual channel DDR5 memory support
  • 28 PCIe lanes (CPU exclusive)
  • TDP 65-120W (upper limit range ~170W)

We’re not only supposed to get more performance details, but AMD is also expected to share more detailed demos and a better look at its AM5 platform. So much so that the company has already given the go-ahead for board partners to showcase their first AM5 products (albeit in prototype stage) on the show floor. It just sucks that due to all the pandemic restrictions and regulations, we decided not to visit Computex this year, otherwise we would have given you our hands on these next-gen motherboards. More information on AMD Ryzen 7000 “Raphael” processors here.

We also managed to get some new details regarding the AMD AM5 platform which will be comprised of the new LGA 1718 socket motherboards. we also expect to see a slightly improved version of the best X670 chipset, currently called X670E. We don’t know the exact details of this chipset but rest assured they are based on a chiplet design. That said, the actual launch event will take place a few months later, where AMD will announce the actual Ryzen 7000 processors along with their prices. It seems like an event close to Gamescom 2022 would make perfect sense, but for now, we’re looking forward to AMD’s big reveal at Computex 2022.
