AMD Ryzen 7000 Series, World’s First 5nm CPU,


AMD Ryzen 7000 Series,: AMD’s most recent product launch event Computex 2022 began just a few hours ago. The American chipmaker made a variety of important announcements to make. These included the next-generation desktop CPUs and laptop processors that are affordable and new.

AMD Ryzen 7000 CPU series is a direct replacement for the highly-respected Ryzen 5000 series. The company has also revealed the launch of Mendocino portable APUs (CPU+GPU) to make laptops affordable.

We’ll go over the technical details later.


AMD Ryzen 7000

AMD’s Ryzen 7000 family of processors has been officially revealed in Computex 2022. The Ryzen 7000 family is the first desktop processor that is based on TSMC’s 5-nm process and incorporates AMD’s next-gen Zen 4 architecture.

Ryzen Zen 7000 Zen 4 and Zen 4 are quite similar to Zen 3, including a chipset with 2 Core Complex Dies (CCDs) built on TSMC’s 5-nanometer manufacturing process. AMD hasn’t released any specific information about Zen 4 but has revealed that it will have 1MB of L2 memory per processor core. This is two times the amount of Zen 3 and Zen 2.

Ryzen 700 is also offering greater clock speeds because of the upgraded 5nm design. AMD boasts 5GHz+ maximum turbo clock speeds, however, in a video demo, AMD CEO Dr. Su presented AMD’s pre-production 16-core Ryzen 700 chip, which is now able to increase its speed to over 5.5GHz that’s an enormous leap over the sub-5GHz versions.

In the wake of instruction per clock (IPC) and improvement in clock speed, AMD is claiming a 15% improvement in performance over the previous generation. AMD is also launching the new 6nm I/O die (IOD) to replace the previous generation’s 14nm.

The new IOD includes an iGPU which is a first-time feature for AMD. It means every one of the Ryzen 700 CPUs can also be APUs, too.

In addition, AMD is announcing higher use of power but the officially-named SKUs haven’t been announced as of yet. AMD’s Ryzen 7000 CPUs could accommodate up to 170W during this generation, as opposed to 100W in Ryzen 5000. The company has now officially included support for PCIe 5.0 in addition, which is as Intel’s Alder Lake CPUs.

A retail launch with a full-scale retail presence is planned for fall 2022.

Mendocino Mobile APUs

In addition to its announcement of processors for desktops, AMD is also revealing new AMD APUs designed for laptops with a budget. The processors have been called “Mendocino” and are aimed at the mainstream, high-volume Windows as well as ChromeOS notebooks.

With the Mendocino release, AMD’s APUs are now current with AMD’s GPU lineup due to its RDNA 2 GPU. It’s a small chip, with just four Zen 2 cores.

Mendocino’s specs are in comparison to the older versions of Ryzen mobile processors.
