It appears that AMD has moved its original September 15 launch plans for its Ryzen 7000 “Zen 4” CPUs and AM5 platform to late September. We’ve just received confirmation from our sources that AMD will be releasing the next generation of CPUs in late September for sales.
AMD Ryzen 7000 “Zen 4” CPUs and AM5 platform delayed to September 27, the same day the 13th generation Intel Raptor Lake was unveiled
Earlier this month, we mentioned That AMD will host an event in late August where they will announce all the details such as specifications and pricing for the next generation Ryzen 7000 “Zen 4” CPUs and related AM5 platform. The company was also planning to open sales just two weeks later on September 15. But it seems that AMD has decided to pause sales a bit and put the real launch next to it 13th Generation Intel Raptor Lake processors On September 27.
Expected to host Intel Innovation event On September 27, the company will unveil its latest desktop processor, codenamed Raptor Lake. The CPUs won’t be available until October, however, and AMD’s Ryzen 7000 CPUs will be ready for the mass consumer market. This might sound like AMD is pretty confident about releasing its chips right when its competitor announces its next-generation parts. At the same time, Online retailers have started listing several AMD Ryzen 7000 CPUs along with their starting prices like:
- Ryzen 9 7950X (16 core / 32 thread)
- Ryzen 9 7900X (12 core / 24 thread)
- Ryzen 7 7700X (8 Core / 16 Thread)
- Ryzen 5 7600X (6 core / 12 thread)
The first wave of AMD 600 series motherboards will focus on Sophisticated X670E and X670 Designs Followed by the B650E and B650 products a few weeks later (around October/November). The new CPUs will feature an all-new Zen 4 core architecture that is expected to deliver up to 8% IPC, >15% ST (single-threaded), and >35% MT (Multi-Threaded) performance improvement over Zen 3.
In addition, AMD overclocks next-generation CPUs Up to 5.7GHz boost clocks, 170 watt TDPs and 230 watt PPT. In addition, the platform itself will be equipped with the latest technologies such as PCIe Gen 5.0 slots and Gen 5.0 M.2 support DDR5 memory support (EXPO)and the new SAS (Smart Access Storage) firmware suite that runs on the DirectStorage API framework.
Expected Features of AMD Ryzen ‘Zen 4’ Desktop CPU:

- More than 15% performance increase in single-thread applications
- All-new Zen 4 CPU cores (IPC/architectural improvements)
- Brand new TSMC 5nm process knot with 6nm IOD
- 25% performance per watt compared to Zen 3
- >35% overall performance improvement vs Zen 3
- 8-10% Instructions Per Hour (IPC) Optimization vs Zen 3
- Support on AM5 platform with LGA1718 . socket
- New motherboards X670E, X670, B650E, B650
- Dual channel DDR5 memory support
