Ryzen 7000 CPUs launching Q3 2022, RX 7000 GPUs later this year, AMD confirms

Written by Stuart Thomas on Wed, Aug 3, 2022 10:49 PM

Among all the buzz for next generation graphics cards, it can be easy to assume this year’s launch might take longer than the last, or be completely delayed due to component shortages. Thankfully the Red Team have reaffirmed their release windows for next gen hardware, including their upcoming GPUs and CPUs.

According to AMD, the Ryzen 7000 series processors are still due to launch in Q3 2022, which means a September release is highly likely with an official reveal of pricing, specs and performance at around the end of August. As for the RX 7000 graphics cards, they will be launching later in the year, with the high-end GPUs being released first as per usual.

AMD Ryzen 7000 rumored specs

CPU Cores/Threads Node size Clock speed (GHz) Cache (MB) TDP Price (USD)
Ryzen 9 7950X 16/32 5nm 5.5 80 105-170W $700
Ryzen 9 7900X 12/24 5.4 76 $600
Ryzen 7 7800X 8/16 5.3 40 65-125W $400
Ryzen 7 7700X $300
Ryzen 5 7600X 6/12 5.2 38 $200

If a September release is true, and an august reveal date as well, then that means we are potentially just a few weeks away from finding out the official specs for the Ryzen 7000 series. We’ll have to wait a bit longer for the RX 7000 graphics cards though, but so far the rumors are looking pretty exciting in terms of performance.

What do you think? Are you excited for the Ryzen 7000 series? Will you be upgrading your CPU this year? Which one do you think you’ll go for this time? Let us know!

Are you looking to upgrade your CPU this year?

Which CPU are you most looking forward to hearing more about?

My 7700k is getting long in the tooth, so I would love to shove a 6 core AM5 chip in there knowing I have a 3D chip and probably another gen to look forward to. Let's be real, 10% here or there won't matter 1440p/4k I will be GPU bound.

Well if the next gen Gpus are good as these so called leaks or leakers say, than 1440p would b e ideal for people. And maybe it willt be GPU bound only on 4K?

Eh, just got a 5800x3d from AMD when i RMAed my 5800x, bought a new x570 board as well. I dont think it's gonna be a huge jump from 5th gen ryzen anyways. I'm more interested in the stacked GPU. Plus the new mobos will have pcie 5.0 and ddr5 so be even more expensive then x570. I thik im good for now, 7000 gpu and a waterblock ill be good for 3440x1440.

Visually yeah, but I just hoped a bit more depth from the cp2077 RPG systems :/

After the Witcher 3, I expected CP2077 to not have very deep RPG systems.

So the 12 and 16 core CPUs have different cache size for once. Might be enough to get me to splurge on the 7950x. Wonder what this will do for the performance of my 6900xt compared to my 5900x.

They both have 64MB L3 Cache, it's just that the per core L2 cache of 1MB gets counted too.

Sooooo.... They have different cache sizes then. Thanks for clearing that up.

The 5900X has less L2 and L1 cache than the 5950X as well, becuase L1 and L2 cache is tied to the cores and the 5900x has 4x disabled cores, only the L3 cache is the same, just like the rumored 7900x and 7950x.

Depends on what intel answers with, once intel 12th gen entered the conversation all of a sudden all the zen 3 ship prices took a nose dive
