AMD's Ryzen 7000 Desktop CPUs to Arrive Before the End of September

From PC Mag: AMD’s next-generation Ryzen chips will arrive a little earlier this year. On Tuesday, CEO Lisa Su said the products will launch during this quarter, which ends on Sept. 30.

“Looking ahead, we’re on track to launch our all new Ryzen 7000 desktop processors and AM5 (motherboard) platform later this quarter with leadership performance in gaming and content creation," Su said during an earnings call.

That’s good news for any AMD fans eager to build a PC with the new chips. Previously, AMD only teased the new chips would arrive sometime in the fall. In contrast, the Zen 3 Ryzen 5000 series was officially introduced back in October 2020 and launched a month later.

The Ryzen 7000 processors will feature several upgrades, including a new Zen 4 CPU architecture built using a 5-nanometer manufacturing process from TSMC. In addition, at least some of the chips will be able to run with clock speeds at over 5GHz.
