At the Computex 2022 presentation on May 23rd, AMD announced its Ryzen 7000 series processors based on the Zen 5 architecture. The business unveiled its new AMD Socket AM5 platform, which will house the company’s most recent CPUs. During the event, AMD also unveiled the Mendocino range of APU-powered laptops. The most recent AMD Ryzen 7000 CPUs can run at 5.5GHz. Let’s take a look at everything AMD announced at Computex 2022.
Ryzen 7000 CPUs from AMD
The AMD Ryzen 7000 CPUs, which were initially revealed at CES 2022, will be available in the autumn of 2022, between September and December. The latest AMD Ryzen 7000 chipsets feature the new Zen 4 architecture and are built using a 5nm technology. It will have a 1MB L2 cache per core rather than the current 512KB.
According to AMD, the new CPUs enhance single-thread performance by more than 15%. The business exhibited a pre-production 16-core CPU that was about 30% quicker than the Intel Core i9-12900K in a multi-threaded Blender task.
The major point here is that AMD promises a clock speed of over 5GHz on the Ryzen 7000 while gaming. While playing Ghostwire: Tokyo, the team demonstrated an undisclosed 16-core Ryzen 7000 CPU running at 5.5GHz max speed.
AMD employs a new I/O die on the newest Ryzen 7 CPUs, which is built on a 6m process, in addition to the 5nm Zen 4 architecture. All Ryzen 7000 CPUs will come preinstalled with AMD RDNA 2-based graphics. Additionally, DDR5 RAM and PCIe 5.0 slots are supported by the new I/O chip.
AMD Socket AM5 is a kind of socket used by AMD
AMD also revealed its AMD Socket AM5 platform, which will be used to house the new Ryzen 7000 CPUs. It has LGA 1718 pins instead of PGA, and it can handle TDPs of up to 170W. The AM4 cooler may be used by AM5.
AMD also unveiled the AMD X670 Extreme, X670, and B650 AM5 motherboards. For storage, the B650 motherboard only has PCIe 5.0 slots. The X670, on the other hand, has one PCIe 5.0 slot for storage and optional PCIe graphics capabilities. The X670 Extreme is the most powerful overclocking processor, with two PCIe 5.0 slots for graphics and one for storage. The motherboards will be available from a variety of manufacturers, including ASUS, ASRock, Gigabyte, and MSI.
AMD also stated that PCI 5.0-based SSDs will be available around the same time as the boards, allowing users to take full use of the additional bandwidth for up to 60% quicker read speeds than 4.0 drivers.
Laptops AMD Mendocino
AMD also unveiled Mendocino, a new series of APU-powered laptops. The laptops will be available in the fourth quarter of 2022. Built on a 6nm technology, these APUs have AMD’s Zen 2 cores with integrated RDNA 2 graphics and enable LPDDR5 RAM. The chips are designed for laptops that cost between $400 and $700. (Approx. Rs 31,000 to Rs 54,500).
