The AMD Next-Gen 5nm Ryzen 7000 Desktop CPU for the AM5 platform will reportedly be launched as early as September 2022.

As early as September 2022, AMD is expected to present its next-generation Ryzen 7000 Desktop processors based on the 5nm Zen 4 architecture and the corresponding AM5 platform, DigiTimes reports.

AMD Ryzen 7000 desktop CPUs with next-generation Zen 4 cores and the AM5 platform will be released in early September 2022.

The AMD Ryzen 7000 Desktop CPU and AM5 platform have been eagerly awaited by many as it is a brand new ecosystem designed for the next generation of gamers and content creators. AMD Ryzen 7000 Desktop CPUs will first bring gamers a new Zen 4 core technology based on a 5nm process node, and will also implement a new AM5 platform that offers a number of new features such as support for DDR5 and PCIe Gen 5.0 among several other technologies .

According to DigiTimes industry sources, AMD is expected to unveil its next-generation Ryzen 7000 desktop processor and AM5 platform as early as September 2022. This would mean that the launch could happen in the next four months, but with that said, AMD is also expects to reveal more details at Computex 2022, which will be the main event for the Zen 4 showcase.

AMD Ryzen ‘Zen 4’ Desktop CPU Expected Features:

  • Brand new Zen 4 CPU cores (IPC / architectural enhancements)
  • Brand new TSMC 5nm process node with 6nm IOD
  • Support on AM5 platform with LGA1718 socket
  • Dual channel DDR5 memory support
  • 28 PCIe tape (CPU only)
  • 65-120W TDP (upper limit range ~ 170W)

Not only are we expected to get more performance details, but AMD is also expected to share more detailed demonstrations and a better look at its AM5 platform. So much so that the company has already given partners in the board the green light to display their first AM5 products (albeit at the prototype stage) at the showroom. It sucks that due to all the restrictions and regulations due to the pandemic, we decided not to visit Computex this year, otherwise we would provide you with practical work with these next-generation motherboards. More about AMD Ryzen 7000 ‘Raphael’ CPUs here.

We also managed to get some new details regarding the AMD AM5 platform which will consist of the new LGA 1718 motherboards. It seems that the motherboards will be introduced right after the introductory presentation of AMD Computex, and we also expect to see a slightly upgraded version of the premium X670 chipset, currently called the X670E. We don’t know the exact details of this chipset, but rest assured, they are based on the design of the chipset. That said, the actual launch event will take place a few months later where AMD will announce the actual Ryzen 7000 CPUs along with their pricing. It seems that an event close to Gamescom 2022 would make perfect sense, but from now on we are looking forward to a big AMD presentation at Computex 2022.
