It appears that AMD has confirmed several of its upcoming Ryzen 7000 Series SKUs. The listing of these CPUs was confirmed on the chipmaker’s product library.
Specifically, the listing in AMD’s Library contains a total of four Ryzen 7000 Series SKUs. The list includes the Ryzen 5 7600X, 7700X, 7900X, and 7950X. That list, by the way, doesn’t appear to include a Ryzen 7 5800X or the Ryzen 3 SKUs of the 7000 series. Beyond that, the AMD LIbrary doesn’t include any specifications about the 7000 Series.
The presence of the Ryzen 7 7700X is a bit of a surprise, given how initial rumours seemed to suggest that AMD had no intentions of releasing such an SKU. That being said, it did launch the Ryzen 7 5700X years after the initial launch of the 5000 series.
As a quick recap, AMD officially launched the Ryzen 7000 series earlier in May this year, during the Computex 2022 livestream keynote. At the very core of the lineup are several new features and offerings, chief among them being the new Zen4 CPU architecture, which in turn is based on a brand new 5nm process node.
In addition to the new process node, AMD is also pairing the Zen4 architecture of the Ryzen 7000 series with an all-new 6nm I/O DIe, containing an integrated RDNA2 graphics core with an advanced low-power architecture, plus DDR5 and PCIe Gen5 controllers. In other words, this will be the first lineup of non-G Ryzen processors to ship out with integrated graphics.
Of course, with the brand new Zen4 architecture, comes a brand new AM5 socket. The Ryzen 7000 Series marks the first time AMD transitioned from the Pin Grid Array (PGA) into the Land Grid Array (LGA) socket and more specifically, LGA1718.
As for AM5, the new socket and platform officially brings not only support for DDR5 to the Ryzen 7000 Series, but also support for PCIe Gen5. Oh, and obviously, a new 600 series set of motherboards, with the X670E and X670 leading the way.
