Quick-thinking users have found a strange list on AMD’s resource (since removed) which sheds light on the names of the 7000 series CPUs. As first noticed by Video cardz on On Wednesday, AMD’s list contained SKUs for its upcoming 7000 series processors, including Ryzen 9 7950X, Ryzen 9 7900x, Ryzen 7 7700X and Ryzen 5 7600X. Ddespite bounty of 7s there, the sharpest among you will notice that they are missing a Ryzen 7 7800X or something like that Ryzen 3 7000 series CPU. It’s a bit of a shame for the budget and middle class players. 7800X had too previously hinted at by consistent player Greymon over on Twitter.
So there’s not much else to go on here except the names of these CPUs as well as the apparent timing of release, right? Well, based on what is AMD in the past demodthe leaked names suggest the Ryzen 9 7950X could top out with 16 cores and 32-thread connections, while the next-lowest in the lineup could have 12 cores, then 8, then 6. Tlast we heard about these CPUs, the word on the street were they would contain up to 16 cores, helping them sprint beyond 5GHz speeds. During an AMD presentationa 16-core Zen 4 chip clocked into 5.5 GHz while gaming Ghostwire: Tokyo. It was of course a controlled environment, but it gives us a basis for you bet core distribution over the Zen 4 line.
So many “7s” as it is in these name, there are also plenty of 5s around, with PCIe Gen 5 controllers and DDR5 memory support be the key functions for the Raphael line. The new CPU generation will too need one AM5 motherboard connector, which will require a 1718-pin LGA motherboard.
These motherboards include the B650, X670 and X670 Extreme Chipsets. The latter two will contain the hardware needed for the PCIe Gen 5 graphics technology.
We still don’t know many details of prices, etc the state of the current chip manufacturing market, it would be foolish to begin to guess. There there have been rumors of a release in mid-September, according to Tom’s hardwarebut of course mileage may vary significantly for unannounced release dates.
In any case, AMD is clearly setting it up top-end CPUs to compete against the likes of Intel and its upcoming Core i9-13900 CPU. That processor rumored to rock 24 cores (32 threads) that are apparently split between one-third performance and two-thirds efficiency cores. It is also rumored to support up to DDR5-5600 memory and support a maximum clock speed of 3.7GHz, better than a comparable Ryzen 9 5900X.
