The new Ryzen 7000 chips are expected to be available globally from September 27, starting at $299.
Featuring up to 16 cores, 32 threads and built on an optimised TSMC 5nm process node, the Ryzen 7000 Series processors deliver dominant performance and leadership energy efficiency, the company said during its launch here.
“The AMD Ryzen 7000 Series brings leadership gaming performance, extraordinary power for content creation, and advanced scalability with the new AMD Socket AM5,” said Saeid Moshkelani, senior vice president and GM, Client business unit, AMD.
Compared to the previous generation, AMD Ryzen 7950X processor enables single-core performance improvement of up to 29 per cent, up to 45 per cent more compute for content creators in POV Ray, up to 15 per cent faster gaming performance in select titles, and up to 27 per cent better performance-per-watt.
AMD’s most expansive desktop platform to date, the new Socket AM5 platform is designed for longevity with support through 2025.
“With the next generation Ryzen 7000 Series Desktop processors, we are proud to uphold our promise of leadership and continuous innovation, delivering the ultimate PC experience for gamers and creators alike,” Moshkelani added.
Meanwhile, even the 6-core AMD Ryzen 5 7600X processor offers an average of 5 per cent faster gaming performance across select titles than the competitor’s flagship gaming processor.
