The Ambitious AMD Ryzen 7000

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 SeriesNanometers (NM)
“Zen 2” (July 2019)7nm
“Zen 3”7nm
“Zen 3” 3D V-Cache6nm
“Zen 4”5nm
“Zen 4” 3D V-Cache5/4nm
“Zen 4c”/4nm
“Zen 5”4nm
“Zen 5” 3D V-Cache4/3nm
“Zen 5c”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 ProcessorsBasic Specifications
AMD Ryzen™ 9 7950X16-core; 32-thread; 4.5 GHz base clock (up to 5.7 GHz); 80MB cache
