In a brief press release sent out this morning, AMD has announced that they will be delivering their eagerly anticipated Ryzen 7000 unveiling later this month as a live stream. In an event dubbed “together we advance_PCs”, AMD will be discussing the forthcoming Ryzen 7000 series processors as well as the underlying Zen 4 architecture and associated AM5 platform – laying the groundwork ahead of AMD’s planned fall launch for the Ryzen 7000 platform. The event is set to kick off on August 29th at 7pm ET (23:00 UTC), with CEO Dr. Lisa Su and CTO Mark Papermaster slated to present.

AMD first unveiled their Ryzen 7000 platform and branding back at Computex 2022, offering quite a few high-level details on the forthcoming consumer processor platform while stating it would be launching in the fall. The new CPU family will feature up to 16 Zen 4 cores using TSMC's optimized 5 nm manufacturing process for the Core Complex Die (CCD), and TSMC’s 6nm process for the I/O Die (IOD). AMD has not disclosed a great deal about the Zen 4 architecture itself, though their Computex presentation has indicated we should expect a several percent increase in IPC, along with a further several percent increase in peak clockspeeds, allowing for a 15%+ increase in single-threaded performance.

The Ryzen 7000 series is also notable for being the first of AMD’s chiplet-based CPUs to integrate a GPU – in this case embedding it in the IOD. The modest GPU allows for AMD’s CPUs to supply their own graphics, eliminating the need for a discrete GPU just to boot a system while, we expect, providing enough performance for basic desktop work.

The new CPU family will also come with a new socket and motherboard platform, which AMD is dubbing AM5. The first significant socket update for AMD in six years will bring with it a slew of changes and new features, including a switch to an LGA-style socket (LGA1718) and support for DDR5 memory. Providing the back-end for AM5 will be AMD’s 600 series chipsets, with AMD set to release both enthusiast and mainstream chipsets. PCIe 5.0 will also be supported by the platform, but in the interest of keeping motherboard prices in check, it is not a mandatory motherboard feature.

The remaining major disclosures that AMD hasn’t made – and which we’re expecting to see at their next event – will be around the Zen 4 architecture itself, as well as information on specific Ryzen 7000 SKUs. Pricing information is likely not in the cards (the industry has developed a strong tendency to announce prices at the last minute), but at the very least we should have an idea of how many cores to expect on the various SKUs, as well as where the official TDPs will land in this generation given AM5’s greater power limits.

Meanwhile, AMD’s press release does not mention whether the presentation will be recorded or live. Like most tech companies, AMD switched to pre-recorded presentations due to the outbreak of COVID-19, which in turn has been paying dividends in the form of breezier and more focused presentations with higher production values. While relatively insignificant in the big picture of things, it will be interesting to see whether AMD is going back to live presentations for consumer product unveils such as this.

In any case, we’ll find out more during AMD’s broadcast. The presentation is slated to air on August 29th at 7pm Eastern, on AMD’s YouTube channel. And of course, be sure to check out AnandTech for a full rundown and analysis of AMD’s announcements.

    The important infact most important feature of all is how stable is IODie now. Ryzen was a failure in that and my research, their Ryzen 5000 has this instability issue even if you barely touch Curve Optimizer and or that DRAM Freq above 3600MHz. Plus the BIOS has no proper documentation like Intel's Datasheet. I don't expect to have datasheets since many AMD users will run at bone stock. But the IOD stability (USB, WHEA and general machine response) it will take some time since it has to be in the market just like Intel's BS LGA1700 ILM failure. I just want to see if they make any special announcement for that piece.

    As for the chipset, Techpowerup mentioned the CPU has PCIe5.0 link speed to the PCH but the Chipset downgrades it to PCIe 4.0 that's a bummer since the lanes are not like Intel so it has to depend on PCIe but with generation downgrade that means the I/O won't be much high, esp those PCIe SSDs you all want to run and etc.

    For the meat, the ST performance and how MT scales will it beat Intel in ST or not, and how the Cores are varied now and esp the Voltage. Ryzen rammed 1.4v through all Ryzen 5000 and they barely can get to boost clocks on top of the stupid issues with IODie, X3D had 1.3v but it has all blocked to control and tune, so a worthless chip for people who want to tinker.

    DRAM IF how is it gonna work, same like Intel's 2 gear BS or does AMD want to step to next level by having 1:1 clock speed link ? EXPO is their new XMP rival gotta see how it works in action.

    " their Ryzen 5000 has this instability issue even if you barely touch Curve Optimizer and or that DRAM Freq above 3600MHz " 4 ryzen 5k comps here, no issues at all with them since i bought them, so there could be other reasons for these "issues " my 5900x was running 3600mhz ram too. Reply

    Hell, even with stock clocks, I've had instability issues with multiple CPUs (3700X and 5800X), multiple motherboards, multiple sets of RAM (with ECC, even), multiple GPUs (5700XT, RMA replacement 5700XT, and Radeon Pro W5700), and multiple power supplies.

    I still get WHEA errors sometimes (PCIe or CPU Cache), and the GPU driver sometimes dies or drops the application (causing FF14 to crash, or Minecraft Bedrock to reload). It happened all the time with the Ryzen 5800X, and less often once I switched back to the 3700X.

    If I'd known the 5800X was going to be such a pain, I would've stuck with the 3700X, and gone with a Xeon D for the server machine I had moved the 3700X into. It's honestly making me consider going back to Intel next time.

    the i guess the 4 comps i have, must of been the few good ones. * shrug *
    heck the x99 based comp i also use, still has issues.

    I have built a 2400G, 2600, and 3600 Ryzen desktop systems without a single one having an issue. Where I work I am the person who has designed our entire data center upgrade and laptop upgrade. All of those run Epyc or Ryzen and never had an issue either. Reply

    In my experience, the vast majority of stability issues on AM4 platform are the result of insufficient memory voltage. Or rather, the crappy RAM kits that work fine on intel, don't work on AM4, unless the voltage is upped to 1.5V. and there are a lot of crappy RAM kits out there. Reply

    DDR4 1.5v means you want at-least 32GB 16x2 4000MHz Dual Rank B-Die C15 speeds, and Ryzen cannot handle that fast memory Ryzen cannot even go above 3600MHz without getting issues and stability. Not even Alder Lake can that fast Gear 1, last one which can do it without gear ratio was Comet Lake 10th gen 10900K/KF.

    Pumping 1.5v and expecting stability not going to make anything better. Ryzen's weakness is IODie, AMD fked up big time. They must fix it on 7000 series or else history will repeat. Beautiful numbers but IRL tons of issues.

    I wonder, have there been similar issues with Cezanne? Reply

    But you sure are
