AMD already provides an indication of what models to expect when the Ryzen 7700X launches. You can find the Ryzen 9 7950X and Ryzen 9 7900X in AMD’s product library. This was discovered in the public library AMD made VideoCardz. Marketing material already has the models marked on it. The models names match the Ryzen 5000’s starting lineup. However, there is a missing “Ryzen 7 7800X”, which will be the successor to the Ryzen 7 5800X. The Ryzen 7 7700X instead is called, while the Ryzen 7 5700X (test), only made an appearance as a latecomer.
AMD has already revealed the first Ryzen 7700 models (Image by VideoCardz). However, submissions do not necessarily indicate that the Ryzen 7000, codenamed Raphael and due to be released in September, will look exactly the same. rumors previously placed the Ryzen 7 7800X in the first row, and stated that the Ryzen 7 7700X would follow.
Not yet available key data
AMD has now confirmed that the models are in fact working as expected. Their specifications are more interesting but not yet known. It is currently assumed that the number and type of cores used in the predecessors are the same, so the top model 7950X has 16 cores as well as 32 threads.
IPC increases in Zen 4 (Image by AMD) AMD Zen 4 at an eloquent glance (Image from AMD) Gaming at 5.5GHz is no problem. A single core should run at least the same speed (Photo: AMD). It is evident that Zen 4 architecture offers more performance. AMD promised performance improvements of over 15% in single-thread applications.
The number of instructions per cycle (IPC), should increase only by 8-10 percent. Further increases can be expected with higher clock speeds (AMD spoke of 5.5 GHz). The memory bandwidth will increase tremendously due to the switch from DDR5 to DDR5 memory. New instructions have been added for artificial intelligence (AVX-512) and AVX-521. AMD announced significant increases in heat dissipation with TDPs of up to 170 Watts. However, AMD also claimed significant improvements in power per watt.
Coming soon: More information about the AM5 platform
More information regarding the Ryzen7000 is likely to be released soon. AMD and motherboard partners ASRock, Biostars, Gigabyte and MSI will present the first motherboards using the socket AM5 on August 4. Expect the flagships featuring the “dual” X670E chipet. AMD is referring to “autumn 2022” as the date for the Ryzen 7000, but it is likely that they will present it again in September. Soon thereafter, Intel Raptor Lake (aka Core ix-13xxx) will be presented as the new competitor.
