AMD Ryzen 7000 series processors are about to enter mass production

AMD leaker @greymon55 said that the AMD CPU code-named "Raphael" is scheduled to enter mass production next month or in May. Popular Science: Raphael Sanzio, whose real name is Raphael Santi, often referred to as Raphael, is an Italian painter and architect. Together with Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo, he is known as the "Three Masters of the Renaissance".

Greymon55 also successfully leaked AMD's roadmap before, confirming some of AMD's product plans. He said that AMD's chip packaging plant is ready and is expected to start mass production in the near future. He also previously stated that the Ryzen 7000 series processors will be released in the third quarter and that AM5 motherboard test samples will be produced soon.

AMD Vermeer (Zen3) entered mass production in July 2020 and was officially released in November of the same year, while the version with 3D V-Cache started production in November last year and will not be officially launched until next month. Given that the Ryzen 7000 series uses a new socket, it is expected to go through a 4-5 month cycle or even longer from production to market, but it is certain that AMD is likely to be ready to launch Raphael processors at the beginning of the fourth quarter. , which is just in time to compete with Intel's 13th Gen Core "Raptor Lake" series.

The AMD Ryzen 7000 series is expected to feature up to 16 cores designed with the 5 nm Zen4 microarchitecture and is expected to be paired with the new AM5 LGA socket cod. AMD intends to provide multi-year support for its new socket and will also be compatible with AM4 coolers, and the new platform is also expected to support the latest DDR5 memory as well as the PCIe 5 standard.

The whistleblower KOMACHI_ENSAKA previously stated that the core display of AMD Ryzen 7000 series desktop processors adopts the latest RDNA2 architecture, with 4 CUs, that is, 256 stream processors, the frequency is only 1.1GHz, and the single-precision computing performance is about 0.5 TFLOPs. For comparison, AMD's just-released Ryzen 6000 mobile processor is equipped with a maximum of 12CU and a frequency of up to 2.4GHz.

At CES in January this year, AMD officially announced the Ryzen 7000 processor. AMD says the processor is based on the 5nm Zen 4 architecture and will be available in the second half of 2022. AMD will also introduce a new AMD Socket AM5 socket to the market for Ryzen's "Zen 4" architecture processors. AMD CEO Su Zifeng confirmed that the Ryzen 7000 can achieve a full-core 5.0GHz, which means that its single-core maximum frequency will exceed 5GHz. AMD also confirmed that the new Ryzen 7000 desktop processor will use the LGA1718 interface.

It is reported that the high-end models of AMD Ryzen 7000 are still 12-core and 16-core specifications, of which the TDP of the 12-core model is still 105W, but the TDP of the 16-core flagship model reaches 170W.
