AMD Ryzen 7000 Series Desktop Processors
AMD claims that its new processors will double the amount of L2 cache per core, feature higher clock speeds, and are projected to provide greater than 15% uplift in single-thread performance versus the prior generation.
The Ryzen 7000 series also features an all-new 6nm I/O die that includes AMD RDNA 2-based graphics engine.
The new low-power architecture adopted from AMD Ryzen mobile processors, supports the latest memory and connectivity technologies like DDR5 and PCI Express 5.0, and support for up to 4 displays.
AMD Socket AM5 Platform
This new socket features a 1718-pin LGA design with support for up to 170W TDP processors, dual-channel DDR5 memory, and new SVI3 power infrastructure for the Ryzen 7000 Series processors.
AMD Socket AM5 features up to 24 PCIe 5.0 lanes, the most in the industry. That makes it AMD’s fastest, largest, and most expensive desktop platform with support for the next-generation and beyond class of storage and graphics cards.
The AM5 family features three levels of motherboards:
• X670 Extreme: Bringing the most connectivity and extreme overclocking capabilities with PCIe 5.0 support for two graphics slots and one storage slot
• X670: Supporting enthusiast overclocking with PCIe 5.0 support on one storage slot with graphics support optional
• B650: Designed for performance users with PCIe 5.0 storage support
Motherboard models spanning all three chipsets are expected from partners including Asrock, Asus, Biostar, Gigabyte, and MSI, and PCIe 5.0 storage solutions will be available from a multitude of partners including Crucial, Micron, and Phison.
Expanding the AMD Ryzen Mobile Portfolio
The new “Mendocino” processors are said to offer great everyday performance and are expected to be priced from 399USD to 699USD.
It features “Zen 2” cores and RDNA 2 architecture-based graphics and are designed to deliver the best battery life and performance in the price band.
The first systems featuring the new “Mendocino” processors will be available from AMD’s OEM partners in Q4 2022.
AMD Advantage Systems and AMD SmartAccess Storage
AMD Advantage systems is a collection of advanced capabilities that enable AMD CPUs and GPUs to eliminate system bottlenecks.
The latest addition to the smart technology family, AMD SmartAccess Storage, supports Microsoft DirectStorage and utilises AMD Smart Access Memory technology and other AMD technologies to help reduce game load times and accelerate texture streaming.
More information about AMD SmartAccess Storage will be provided in the coming months.
The new AMD Advantage systems are available from a number of OEMs, including systems from Alienware, Asus, Lenovo, and HP, and now also include system integrator designs from Metamechbook and Origin PC.
Corsair is also launching their first-ever laptop designed for gamers and streamers, exclusively with AMD Advantage, including an integrated 10-key streaming command centre powered by Elgato’s popular Stream Deck software, and a 1080p high-fidelity streaming grade webcam.
