American semiconductor company AMD (Advanced Micro Devices) launched its latest “Zen 4” architecture-based desktop processor: Ryzen 7000 Series. Developed to meet the demanding needs of gamers and content creators, the Ryzen 7000 Series features up to 16 cores, 32 threads, and TSMC 5nm process node.
Compared to the previous generation, AMD Ryzen 7950X processor enables single-core performance improvement of up to +29%2, up to 45% more compute for content creators in POV Ray3, up to 15% faster gaming performance in select titles4, and up to 27% better performance-per-watt5. AMD’s most expansive desktop platform to date, the new Socket AM5 platform is designed for longevity with support through 2025.
At the top of the stack, the 16-core AMD Ryzen 9 7950X processor offers up to 57% better content creation performance in V-Ray Render compared to the competition.
AMD Ryzen 7950X processor is up to 47% more energy efficient than the competition. Beyond the core, the Ryzen 7000 Series Processors feature an all-new 6nm I/O die, which enables hardware-accelerated video encode/decode9, light-duty graphics work and multi-display support. Across the CPU, a host of new power management technologies leveraged from AMD’s ultra-efficient mobile processors allow Ryzen 7000 Series Desktop processors to run more efficiently than ever before.
AMD also introduced the new Socket AM5 platform that features dual-channel DDR5 memory. The AM5 platform also includes up to 24 PCIe 5.0 lanes.
The new Socket AM5 motherboard family features four new chipsets, giving users the power and flexibility to choose the exact features they want. The four chipsets feature:
– AMD X670 Extreme: Bringing the most connectivity and extreme overclocking capabilities with PCIe 5.0 support for graphics and storage
– AMD X670: Supporting enthusiast overclocking with PCIe 5.0 support for storage and optional graphics support
– AMD B650E: Designed for performance users with PCIe 5.0 storage support and optional graphics support
– AMD B650: Designed for mainstream users with support for DDR5 memory and optional PCIe 5.0 support
New for the Ryzen 7000 Series Desktop processors and optimized for AMD Socket AM5 motherboards, AMD EXPO technology provides users with advanced profile settings for DDR5 memory overclocking. When optimized for high-performance gaming, consumers can expect to see up to 11% faster gaming performance with AMD EXPO technology in F1 202212.
AMD EXPO technology was designed to achieve higher gaming performance from pre-configured overclocking profiles11 and is easy to implement. PC enthusiasts who want to understand the finer details of an AMD EXPO technology-enabled module can find public self-certification reports, which clearly lay out the module’s full timing table, components, and the system configuration used to finalize the memory’s specifications. AMD is offering EXPO technology to its industry memory partners without royalties or licensing fees.
