The latest AMD CPU generation includes DDR5 RAM and PCIe 5.0 technology.The AMD Ryzen 7000 series CPUs and new AM5 series motherboard platforms will be launched live on August 30 at 4:30am IST in a live-streamed event.

The event will be presented by AMD's CEO, CTO, and executive vice president, Mark Papermaster. The live stream will be replayed shortly after it concludes on AMD's YouTube channel. In addition to disclosing pricing and specifications, the chip manufacturer will also reveal more details about the Zen 4 architecture. 

As AMD confirmed at Computex 2022 in May this year, the Ryzen 7000 series will provide gamers and enthusiasts with unmatched performance. A new era of performance desktop PCs will soon begin, according to the company's announcement. A later announcement is expected for Ryzen 7000 series laptops. 

Ryzen's 7000 series processors, codenamed Raphael, have been designed with Zen 4 architecture. At least one AMD model with up to 16 cores has been confirmed. It will be manufactured on a new 5nm process by TSMC and arrange in modular 'chiplets' that will allow for scalable designs and cost-effective integration.

Boost clock speeds should be 'significantly higher than 5GHz,' according to previous announcements. In addition, a new 6nm central IO die will be introduced.

The Ryzen 7000 series CPUs will use a new LGA CPU package with pads instead of pins, requiring pins to make contact with them on the motherboard. The AMD RDNA2 architecture will also be used in all of these CPUs for the first time.

In addition, the L2 caches have been doubled, and new instructions have been added to accelerate AI workloads. In addition to 15 percent greater single-threaded performance, AMD promises significant improvements in power efficiency. 

In 2017, Ryzen's original socket and AM5 platforms broke upgrade compatibility with AM4 motherboards, which have been in use since. The PCIe 5.0 standard was necessary for support of DDR5 RAM and the transition to DDR5. Air and liquid coolers will remain compatible with the cooler mount and clearance, however.

The launch of desktop motherboards is expected to be divided into a minimum of three tiers. Due to high-end power delivery features, the X670 Extreme chipset will cater to 'the most demanding enthusiasts' who wish to overclock their systems while using multiple PCIe 5.0 devices.

At least one graphics card and one M.2 storage device will be supported by the X670 chipset for 'the bulk of enthusiasts and gamers'. Storage devices will only be supported by motherboards with the B650 chipset, which should be fine for most mainstream users.

The latest leaks indicate AMD will introduce models with Ryzen 9, Ryzen 7 and Ryzen 5 designations. In light of the new platform's positioning, it is likely that previous-generation or even new AM4 products will continue to serve price-conscious customers for some time.
