AMD has closed an event focused on its Ryzen 7000 processors. The battle between AMD and Intel it’s still fierce in 2022, and AMD seems to be outpacing Intel with its next generation of processors.
The battle for a spot on the list of best processors it is more competitive now than it has been in years. With new features like DDR5 and PCIe 5.0 in the Ryzen 7000 and Intel’s continued push for hybrid architectures, the launch of AMD’s Ryzen 7000 provides our first look at how the next CPU era will unfold.
We’re going to walk you through how to watch a replay of AMD’s Ryzen 7000 launch and everything announced at the event.
AMD hosted the Together We Advance PCs event on August 29. The company announced the event through from a blog post, and was led by AMD CEO Lisa Su and Chief Technology Officer Mark Papermaster. The event was broadcast live on the AMD YouTube channelbut you can watch a replay via the embedded video above.
It shouldn’t come as a surprise that AMD revealed four new processors to kick off its Ryzen 7000 lineup. You can find full specs below, showing some price, clock speed, and cache improvements.
Overall, AMD says its new processors are up to 57% faster than the previous generation. The company also claimed that the $300 Ryzen 5 5600X can outperform Intel’s $600 Core i9-12900K in gaming, with an average improvement of 11%. That new pricing scheme in particular is a big deal for the industry and the AMD versus Intel game.
|Ryzen 9 7950X||Ryzen 9 7900X||Ryzen 7 7700X||Ryzen 5 7600X|
|Increase clock speed||5.7GHz||5.6GHz||5.4GHz||5.3GHz|
|base clock speed||4.5GHz||4.7GHz||4.5GHz||4.7GHz|
|Cache (L2 + L3)||80MB||76MB||40MB||38MB|
All four processors feature the new AM5 socket, which AMD is supporting with four chipsets. The X670 and X670 Extreme chipsets will launch alongside the processors on September 27, while the B650 and B650 Extreme options will arrive in late October.
This new platform sees many changes for AMD, including the introduction of DDR5 and PCIe 5.0. It also sees AMD retire its long-standing AM4 socket, but the company says it will continue to support AM5 through 2025 and beyond.
AMD confirmed that AM5 motherboards will work with AM4 coolers, as well as the fact that the socket will use a Land Grid Array (LGA) socket with 1,718 pins.
DDR5 is a significant change for AMD, and the company has some tools to help with the transition. The main one is AMD Expo, which is a one-click overclocking utility similar to Intel’s Extreme Memory Profile (XMP). Despite releasing its own version, AMD says that XMP memory will continue to work with AM5 motherboards.
