AMD Ryzen 7000 was leaked on the eve of its release

AMD Ryzen 7000 "Raphael" series desktop CPUs based on the 5nm Zen 4 architecture were leaked ahead of their release at Computex 2022 tomorrow. Of course, there are the next-generation X670E, X670, and B650 platforms with the AM5 interface.

AMD Ryzen 7000 series will be the world's first 5nm desktop CPU, dual Zen 4 chips, up to 16 cores, double the L2 cache, and RDNA 2 GPU blessing, which will be released this fall.

AMD Ryzen 7000 processors will feature the new Zen 4 core architecture, which will be a complete architectural overhaul.

According to reports, the new Zen 4 architecture will retain the small chip design and high core count, they will use TSMC's 5nm process node, and will be offered to gamers first.

A leaked PPT from Videocardz confirms that the series of CPUs will use two Zen 4 CCDs based on TSMC's 5nm process and a single I/O die (IOD) fabricated on TSMC's 6nm process node.

AMD Ryzen "Zen 4" Desktop CPU Expectations:

  • New Zen 4 CPU cores (IPC/architectural improvements)
  • New TSMC 5nm process node CCD+6nm IOD
  • Supports AM5 platform with LGA1718 socket
  • Dual-channel DDR5 memory support
  • 28 PCIe lanes (CPU dedicated)
  • 105-120W TDP (upper range ~170W)
It is reported that AMD Ryzen 7000 series desktop CPUs with the new Zen 4 core architecture will arrive with the AM5 platform this fall.

The next-generation Zen 4-based Ryzen desktop processors are code-named Raphael and will replace the current Vermeer line of (Zen 3-based) Ryzen 5000 desktop CPUs.

From the information we have so far, these CPUs will be standard Zen 4 driver chips, and we can still see top-of-the-line CPUs with 16 cores and 32 threads on the Ryzen 7000 series desktop CPUs, if nothing else.

According to PPT, the new Zen 4 architecture has achieved more than 15% single-threaded performance improvement over Zen 3, and has reached a main frequency of around 5GHz.

As AMD demonstrated at CES 2022 at the beginning of the year, the new generation of Zen 4 Ryzen 7000 CPUs seems to be able to reach more than 5GHz on all cores (the number of cores is not mentioned), so the single-core frequency will inevitably exceed 5GHz.

We might as well look forward to seeing a 5GHz 16-core flagship on the next Zen 4 platform.

In addition to this, these processors will feature an RDNA 2 iGPU, which can be used with the HDMI 2.1 FRL and DP 1.4 ports on the latest AM5 motherboards.

Elsewhere, the AMD Ryzen 7000 desktop CPUs will feature a square (45x45mm) design that also appears to include an integrated heatsink or IHS.

The next-generation CPUs will be the same length, width and height as existing Ryzen desktop CPUs and will be sealed on both sides so applying thermal paste will not fill the interior of the IHS with TIM. Therefore, current coolers will also be fully compatible with Ryzen 7000 series processors.

AMD Ryzen 7000 series desktop CPUs will be released this fall, which means we will see these new products as early as September 2022. Of course, many partners are already ready to launch X670E, X670, and motherboard products with the B650 chipset to be released tomorrow, so stay tuned.
