Advanced Micro Devices today unveiled its 5-nanometer Zen 4 processor architecture at Computex 2022 in Taiwan.
The new AMD Ryzen 7000-series desktop processors with Zen 4 cores will be coming this fall, AMD CEO Lisa Su said in a keynote address.
Su said that the new processors with Zen 4 architecture will offer a significant increase in performance when they are launched in autumn 2022. In addition, Su highlighted the strong growth and momentum for AMD in the mobile market, with 70 of the more than 200 anticipated ultra-thin, gaming, and commercial notebook designs powered by Ryzen 6000 series processors shipped to date marketed or announced.
Additionally, other AMD executives announced the latest addition to the Ryzen Mobile lineup, Mendocino. the latest intelligent AMD technology, SmartAccess Storage; and more details of the new AM5 platform, including support from leading motherboard manufacturers.
“At Computex 2022, we highlighted the increasing adoption of AMD in ultra-thin gaming and commercial notebooks from the leading PC vendors, based on the leading performance and battery life of our Ryzen 6000-series mobile processors,” said Su. “With our upcoming AMD Ryzen 7000-series desktop processors, we will bring even more leadership to the desktop market with our next-gen 5nm Zen 4 architecture and an unprecedented, high-performance
performance computing experience for gamers and developers.”
AMD Ryzen 7000 series desktop processors
The new Ryzen 7000-series desktop processors will double the amount of L2 cache per core, offer higher clock speeds and are expected to offer a more than 15% increase in single-threaded performance over the previous generation for better desktop performance. achieve PC experience.
During the keynote, a pre-production Ryzen 7000-series desktop processor was demonstrated, running at a clock speed of 5.5 GHz throughout the AAA game. The same processor was also shown to be more than 30% faster than an Intel Core i9 12900K in a Blender multi-threaded rendering workload.
In addition to the new “Zen 4” compute chips, the Ryzen 7000 series features a brand new 6nm I/O chip. The new I/O die includes an AMD RDNA 2-based graphics engine, a new low-power architecture inherited from AMD Ryzen mobile processors, support for the latest memory and connectivity technologies such as DDR5 and PCI Express 5.0, as well Support for up to four displays.
AMD Socket AM5 platform
The new AMD Socket AM5 platform offers advanced connectivity for our most demanding enthusiasts. This new socket features a 1718-pin LGA design with support for up to 170W TDP processors, dual-channel DDR5 memory, and a new SVI3 power infrastructure for leading all-core performance with our Ryzen 7000-series processors. Series. AMD Socket AM5 has the most PCIe 5.0 lanes in the industry, with up to 24 lanes, making it our fastest, largest, and most comprehensive desktop platform with support for next-gen memory and graphics cards and beyond.
And AMD said the “Mendocino” processors offer great everyday performance and are expected to cost between $400 and $700.
With “Zen 2” cores and graphics based on the RDNA 2 architecture, the processors are designed to offer the best battery life and performance in the price range, so users can get the most out of their laptop at an attractive price.
The first systems with the new “Mendocino” processors will be available from computer partners in Q4 2022.
