At Computex 2022, AMD showcased some of the company’s upcoming products. In it, technology giant AMD shared more interesting information about the upcoming Ryzen 7000 series of desktop processors.

Accordingly, the new Ryzen 7000 series processors will come with Zen 5 architecture on AMD’s new 5 nm process. According to the company, these processors will come with a dual L2 cache in each core, increasing from 512 KB to about 1 MB per core. Thanks to technological improvements, the new generation of Ryzen 7000 can increase single-core performance by 15%. Another significant big change is that the clock speed of the new processor increases to 5 GHz when performing gaming tasks.

When tested on the Blender 3D software engine, the 16-core Ryzen 7000 series processor allows 30% faster graphics rendering than the Intel Core i9-12900K. In addition, the company also revealed that the processor will also feature a new 6 nm I/O circuitry, including graphics based on AMD RDNA 2, which will be a standard feature of all processors. Ryzen 7000 processor. The new I/O circuitry also enables support for features like DDR5 and PCIe 5.0.

In addition, AMD also revealed some details about the Socket AM5 platform, which will allow storage of Ryzen 7000 and presumably future Ryzen processors. However, AMD did not provide further information on future compatibility for the platform.

At the event, AMD also revealed the change to sockets from PGA to LGA. The pins will now be on the motherboard, not the CPU. The new socket will have approximately 1,718 contacts and will provide native support for components with a TDP of up to 170 W. Despite the design change, the AM5 will still be compatible with the AM4 cooler. AM5 motherboards will offer 24 PCIe 5.0 lanes and up to 14 20Gbps super USB. The board also comes with Wi-Fi 6E, Bluetooth 5.2 LE, support for 4 HDMI 2.1 ports and DisplayPort 2.0 port.
