Joining Su in the announcement was Mark D. Papermaster, AMD’s chief technology officer (CTO) and executive vice president (EVP) for Technology and Engineering.
Speaking after Su, he started his presentation by telling the audience about AMD’s goals, which the company will try to achieve through its “Zen 4” and the Ryzen 7000 Series.
CTO-EVP Papermaster said:
We set a goal to return AMD to sustain high performance CPU delivery.
Now AMD can never go wrong with that. Afterall, CPU is widely referred to as the core - the heart - of the computer.
Papermaster added that AMD saw how gamers and content creators “thrive on performance.” The company’s Zen processors aid in fulfilling their needs.
The AMD Ryzen 7000 desktop CPUs will be launched on September 27, 2022.

Staying true to the company tagline “together we advance,” AMD started to take things a notch higher.
As CEO Su stated:
We focused on a new CPU core design that combines both leadership performance and leadership energy efficiency.
With that said, Su proudly declared that the AMD Ryzen 7000 Series is the first CPU for desktop computers that will be in 5 nanometers (NM).
In terms of nanometers, the table below shows how AMD have progressed through the years beginning 2019 when the first Zen series debuted:
|Zen Series||Nanometers (NM)|
|“Zen 2” (July 2019)||7nm|
|“Zen 3” 3D V-Cache||6nm|
|“Zen 4” 3D V-Cache||5/4nm|
|“Zen 5” 3D V-Cache||4/3nm|
Comparing its performance to AMD Zen 3 and Ryzen 5000 (launched on October 8, 2020), in the new “Zen 4:”
- 13 percent more IPC (interprocess communication)
- maximum frequency set at 5.7 GHz (800 MHz higher)
- 29 percent higher when it comes to total single thread performance
The company will be launching four AMD Ryzen 7000 CPUs next month. The table below shows basic information about each of them:
|AMD Ryzen 7000 Series Desktop Processors||Basic Specifications|
|AMD Ryzen™ 9 7950X||16-core; 32-thread; 4.5 GHz base clock (up to 5.7 GHz); 80MB cache|
|AMD Ryzen™ 9 7900X||12-core; 24-thread; 4.7 GHz base clock (up to 5.6 GHz); 76MB cache|
|AMD Ryzen™ 7 7700X||8-core; 16-thread; 4.5 GHz base clock (up to 5.4 GHz); 40MB cache|
|AMD Ryzen™ 5 7600X||6-core; 12-thread; 4.7 GHz base clock (up to 5.3 GHz); 38MB cache|
The AMD Ryzen 9 7950X and 7900X both have a default thermal design power (TDP) of 170 watts (w). The TDP of 7700X and 7600X is 105w.
For example, in terms of its performance in relation to content creation, the AMD Ryzen 9 7950X processor is better than its competitor by up to 57 percent.
As for gaming performance, on the average, the AMD Ryzen 5 7600X processor is 5 percent faster than other brands.
How about comparing one from the AMD Ryzen 7000 Series to one from the previous series?
The table below shows how better AMD Ryzen 5 7600X is in terms of image quality than AMD Ryzen 5 5600X:
|Name of Games||AMD Ryzen™ 5 7600X - High Image Quality Preset|
|Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege||up to 40 percent better|
|F1 2021||up to 36 percent better|
|Middle-earth: Shadow of War||up to 34 percent better|
|Grand Theft Auto V||up to 6 percent better|
|Counter-Strike: Global Offensive||up to 5 percent better|
The lowest Single Exit Price (SEP) in the lineup of products in the AMD Ryzen 7000 Series is $299.
Here’s a table of the official price list (in U.S. dollars) of the AMD Ryzen 7000 processors:
|AMD Ryzen 7000 Series CPUs||Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP)|
|AMD Ryzen™ 9 7950X||$699|
|AMD Ryzen™ 9 7900X||$549|
|AMD Ryzen™ 7 7700X||$399|
|AMD Ryzen™ 5 7600X||$299|
With the launch of its AMD Ryzen 7000 processors, the company also updated its Socket AM5 platform.
Its new features/improvements include these two:
- dual-channel DDR5 memory
- support for PCIe Gen 5 (PCI Express 5.0) - up to 24 PCIe (peripheral component interconnect express)
Per GSMArena.com, when compared to Ryzen 5000, the new series comes out better:
- power consumption is 62 percent lower (same performance)
- performance is 49 percent more (same power)
Between AMD and Intel processors, the former can provide a more efficient performance.
According to the company, its AMD Ryzen 7000 is 47 percent more efficient than Alder Lake, Intel’s 12th generation processors.
And that’s how AMD’s female CEO wants their products to be.
As Lisa Su, included in the 2021 Forbes 100 Most Powerful Women and 2021 Fortune Most Powerful Women in Business, posted on the company website:
AMD is at our best when we are taking bold, calculated risks and aggressively pursuing the leading-edge technologies that change the world.
