AMD Ryzen 7000 desktop CPUs with next-gen Zen 4 cores and the AM5 platform to release as early as September 2022
Many are eagerly awaiting the AMD Ryzen 7000 desktop CPUs and the AM5 platform, as it is an entirely new ecosystem designed for the next generation of gamers and content creators. The AMD Ryzen 7000 desktop CPUs will bring the company’s brand new Zen 4 core technology, based on the 5nm process node, to gamers first, and will also implement the new AM5 platform that offers a whole host of new features such as DDR5 and PCIe. Gen 5.0 support among several other technologies.
According to DigiTimes industry sources, AMD is expected to introduce its next-gen Ryzen 7000 desktop CPUs and the AM5 platform as early as September 2022. This would mean the launch could take place within the next four months, but that said, AMD is also expected to reveal more details on Computex 2022 which will be a major showcase event for Zen 4.
AMD Ryzen ‘Zen 4’ Desktop CPU Expected Features:
- Brand new Zen 4 CPU cores (IPC / architectural improvements)
- Brand New TSMC 5nm Process Node with 6nm IOD
- Support on AM5 platform with LGA1718 connection
- Dual channel DDR5 memory support
- 28 PCIe lanes (excluding CPU)
- 65-120W TDPs (upper limit range ~170W)
Not only are we expected to get more details on performance, but AMD is also expected to share more detailed demos and a closer look at its AM5 platform. So much so that the company has already given board partners the green light to showcase their first AM5 products (albeit at the prototype stage) on the show floor. It’s just a shame that due to all the pandemic restrictions and regulations we decided not to visit Computex this year or we would have given you our hands-on of these next-gen motherboards.

We also managed to get some new details regarding the AMD AM5 platform, which will consist of the new LGA 1718 socket motherboards. It looks like the motherboards will be showcased right after the AMD Computex keynote, and we’re also expecting a slightly upgraded version of the top-of-the-line X670 chipset, currently designated as X670E. We don’t know the exact details of this chipset, but rest assured, they are based on a chiplet design. That said, the actual launch will be a few months later, where AMD will announce the actual Ryzen 7000 CPUs along with their prices. It looks like an event near Gamescom 2022 would make perfect sense, but from now on we look forward to AMD’s big reveal at Computex 2022.
