AMD introduces 5mn process Ryzen 7000 chip and future AM5 platform


Recently, the big man AMD has launched its new product, the Ryzen 7000 desktop processor, which is said to be will usurp the Intel Alder Lake line (12th Gen) and AM5 platform within the framework of the event. This is the first chip manufactured on the company’s new process.

1. AMD Computex Event 2022

On May 23, the giant of the world’s computer components village AMD held an event AMD Computex 2022. The main content of the event is to introduce the company’s new products, along with a few announcements for the near future.

Computex 2022 quickly attracted the attention of the technology world not only because of the famous brand but also because of the launch of a new super product – AMD Ryzen 7000. This is introduced as the world’s first PC CPU manufactured on the 5nm process.

2. “Monster” AMD Ryzen 7000

1. AMD Ryzen 7000 uses 5nm . process

As introduced in January, AMD Ryzen 7000 is the first PC chip manufactured on the 5nm process, and the AM5 motherboard platform is designed to support DDR5 and PCIe 5.0.

In general, the smaller the process, the better, as it allows chipmakers to put more transistors into the CPU. With this idea, AMD has the advantage because Intel Alder Lake is built on top of ’10nm Enhanced Super Cores’ which the company calls the ‘Intel 7 process’. But Intel argues that size isn’t as important as it once was, with its hybrid design ensuring Alder Lake still offers a competitive performance. However, AMD’s success in designing 5nm desktop processors must be commended.

2. AMD can offer more cores and threads

Intel’s Alder Lake processors are impressive, but they have low core counts, with a maximum range of 16 cores and 24 threads. For comparison, AMD’s current Ryzen 9 5950X chip has 16 cores and 32 threads.

Rumors indicate that AMD may launch a new Ryzen 9 7950X chip with a whopping 24 cores and 48 threads. This should give AMD a big edge when it comes to multi-threaded performance.

The Zen 4 chip will also have 15% faster single-thread performance than Zen 3. The new chips may also have higher power consumption, though. The new AM5 motherboards can now power these chips up to 170W, up from the previously reported 142W.

3. AMD Ryzen 7000 can match Intel’s frequency speed

Historically, Intel has always dominated top frequency speeds, but desktop processors AMD’s Ryzen 7000 may be about to change that. AMD said chip Ryzen 7000 will be able to boost speeds up to 5.5GHz, and this is the company’s first CPU chip to do so. AMD showed off a 5.5GHz clock speed during the Computex event while playing Ghostwire: Tokyo. For comparison, the flagship Alder Lake processor (Intel Core i9-12900KS) has a maximum turbo frequency of 5.5GHz, the same speed as its upcoming AMD rival.

However the truth is that megahertz doesn’t mean much for performance. Both Intel and AMD have many laptop chips that can speed up to 5GHz, and that doesn’t necessarily mean they’re faster than lower-clocked desktop CPUs.

Of course, the frequency rate won’t paint the full picture of gaming performance, but it’s still a great achievement for AMD as it looks set to challenge Intel’s dominance in this area.

4. AMD Ryzen 7000 and Alder Lake both support DDR5 . memory

One of the coolest aspects about Intel’s Alder Lake is that it supports DDR5 memory, allowing your PC to use faster RAM for enhanced performance levels.

While DDR4 memory maxes out at 16GB per chip, DDR5 raises the memory capacity up to 64GB and thus proves to be a huge improvement over its predecessor.

Intel boasted a big advantage when their Alder Lake processors were confirmed to support DDR5 memory in 2021, but now AMD has closed the gap with Ryzen 7000 which also has physical compatibility. sports.

5. 3 versions of AMD Ryzen 7000 . chip

In the new CPUs, we still see three chiplets: 2 5nm Zen 4 CPU modules and 1 new 6nm I/O die that now integrates RDNA 2 graphics, DDR5 and PCIe 5.0 controllers. AMD Marketing Director Robert Hallock said each chip Ryzen 7000 there will be some amount of integrated graphics. So you will only need one video card if you have extra needs when working or playing games.

There will be at least one high-speed PCIe 5.0 NVMe storage slot on every AM5 motherboard class AMD announces, including the new X670 Extreme, X670, and even the more affordable B650. AMD says it has improved the chip to be 60% faster in terms of data download speeds.

6. When will AMD Ryzen 7000 chips be released?

AMD is expected to launch desktop chips Ryzen 7000 its own in the fall of 2022.

The Intel Alder Lake desktop chips are due out in November 2021 and are almost off to a head start with rival AMD.

But it should be remembered that Intel is currently working on a new generation (13th Generation) of desktop processors called Intel Raptor Lake. These upcoming chips could launch before the end of 2022, giving AMD a more up-to-date competitor to compete with.

3. AMD Socket AM5 . Platform

Go with AMD Ryzen 7000 processor is the new AMD Socket AM5 platform with LGA design with 1718 pins. The good news is that AMD you can still use your existing AM4 cooler with the new AM5 platform, so we won’t have to replace all the components in the PC. This new socket supports processors with up to 170W TDP, up to 24 PCIe 5.0 lanes, support for dual-channel DDR5 memory, and the new SVI3 power infrastructure. The PCIe 5.0 lanes allow support for up to 14 SuperSpeed ​​USB ports with speeds up to 20Gbps.

AMD also announced three new motherboards based on AM5: B650, X670 and X670 Extreme. All three support PCIe 5.0 storage, but the X670 comes with optional support for PCIe graphics and the X670 Extreme motherboard can support 2 PCIe 5.0 graphics slots. The X670 Extreme models also support the best overclocking capabilities. The new platform-based boards will come from a variety of partners including ASUS, ASRock, and more. The company also promises that users will have a choice of PCI 5.0-based SSDs launching at the same time to take advantage of the increased bandwidth. more than 60%.

4. Laptop using the latest AMD chip “Mendocino”

In this event, in addition to AMD Ryzen 7000 . chip AMD also introduced a new laptop called Mendocino. This laptop will be released in the fourth quarter of 2022 and of course it has a new processor integrated.

The product is expected to cost from 399 USD (more than 9 million VND) to 599 USD (about 14 million VND) and combines 2 Zen cores from AMD (with up to 4 cores and 8 threads). That means customers get great overall performance for both CPU and GPU tasks considering the price point. Additionally, these processors are built on a 6nm process, similar to the Ryzen 6000 series available on this year’s laptops and with support for LPDDR5 memory.

Are you looking forward to the appearance of a new super product? AMD Ryzen 7000 or not? Will this chip help AMD “comparable” with longtime rival Intel? The answer will need to wait until the product officially appears and is experienced.
