AMD Ryzen 7000 Announced: 16 Cores of Zen 4, Plus PCIe 5 and DDR5 for Socket AM5, Coming This Fall - AnandTech
May 23, 2022 3 mins, 9 secs
Lisa Su officially unveiled their next generation of Ryzen processors and the successor to the highly successful Ryzen 5000 series. The new family, the Ryzen 7000 series, will feature up to 16 Zen 4 cores using TSMC's optimized 5 nm manufacturing process. .

AMD Ryzen 7000 also officially marks the end of its long-serving AM4 socket, with the new AM5 LGA1718 socket replacing it with a freshly announced trio of new performance-driven chipsets, including X670E, X670, and B650.

The latest in AMD's arsenal, and perhaps one of the most highly anticipated processor announcements of the year, the AMD Ryzen 7000 family has finally been announced with some new features designed to deliver a premium desktop experience.

Su, AMD's pre-production 16 core Ryzen 7000 chip was shown to be boosting to above 5.5GHz, which is a significant uplift from the sub-5GHz speeds of AMD's current Ryzen 5000 desktop chips.

And, checking AMD's disclosure notes, this is based on early Cinebench R23 notes, comparing their pre-production 16C Ryzen 7000 chip to a 16C 5950X.

While AMD isn't announcing official SKUs at this point, they are explicitly noting that the new AM5 platform allows for TDPs (CPU Package Power) up to 170 Watts in this generation, which is up from the 105W TDPs of the AM4-based Ryzen 5000 series.

Last, but certainly not least, AMD's Zen 4 microarchitecture combined with the new IOD also brings about a host of new features, including official support for PCIe 5.0, much like Intel introduced with its Alder Lake (12th Gen Core) architecture.

Combining AMD Ryzen 7000 with an X670E, X670, or B650 motherboard will provide up to 24x PCIe lanes split between slots and storage devices.

Based on AMD's disclosures, it sounds like all of the lanes coming off of the Ryzen 7000 chip itself will be PCIe 5.0-capable, but it will be up to motherboard manufacturers to actually design their boards to support PCIe lanes at the highly-sensitive 5.0 speeds.

As a result, Ryzen 7000 chips plugged into some lower-end motherboards will only offer a far more limited number of lanes at PCie 5.0 speeds, with the rest operating at PCIe 4.0 speeds.

As the announcement of AMD's Ryzen 7000 family of processors officially brings the previous AM4 platform to an end.

Ryzen 7000 will be the first family of processors using AMD's new AM5 platform, which AMD is also disclosing the first deals of today.

One interesting thing that we've already mentioned is that AMD Ryzen 7000 will move to support processors up to 170 W on Zen 4, as opposed to 105 W TDP found on processors such as AMD's previous Ryzen 9 5950X.

Starting with the flagship X670E 'Extreme' chipset, this is designed for its most premium models, focusing on extreme overclocking, with a full loadout of PCIe 5.0 support – meaning support for two PCIe 5.0 graphics slots, as well as at least one PCIe 5.0 M.2 slot for storage.

Which from AMD's specifications we can infer would be in a x8/x8/x4 loadout, using PCIe lane bifurcation to split off 8 lanes from a first PCIe x16 slot to a second slot when both are in use.

In particular, X670 does not require PCIe 5.0 support for the PCIe x16 slots – while many boards will offer it, an X670 board would also be allowed to implement PCIe 4.0 instead.

Along with the announcement of X670E, X670, and the B650 chipsets, AMD has announced some of the most premium motherboards we can expect to see for the launch of Ryzen 7000.

Rounding out the AM5 platform, since all of AMD's Ryzen 7000 CPUs will have integrated graphics, AM5 as a whole has graphics support baked into every tier of motherboards.

In any case, expect to see AMD drip feed further information about Ryzen 7000 and the AM5 platform over the coming months
