AMD organizing a launch event for its Ryzen 7000 CPUs this month
On Tuesday, AMD announces that it will unwrap its next-gen Ryzen 7000 processors on August 29th and also promises Zen 4 improvements and announce some actual chips for our devices.
The Ryzen 7000 processors are the first PC chips based on a 5nm process, the first AMD desktop chips to boost past 5GHz, and their AM5 motherboard platform is the first from AMD to support DDR5 and PCIe 5.0 out of the box, depending on which motherboard one prefers to buy.
You will have to buy a new motherboard as AMD is finally breaking compatibility with the long-lived AM4 platform and switches away from pins on the CPU. The new Ryzen 7000 desktop chips really do have a crown-shaped lid, the Verge reports.
These will also be the first desktop chips from AMD since its popular Ryzen 5000 series as the Ryzen 6000 was only for laptops and other mobile devices.
But the company is not alternating between laptops and desktops, either, AMD also plans to release some Ryzen 7000 chips for both extreme gaming laptops and thin-and-lights as soon as next year.
