Ryzen 7000 processors will move to a new architecture and new process technology. And that means we should expect an impressive performance boost. And it reportedly will be.
The source says that the IPC (number of instructions executed per clock cycle) in Zen 4 will increase relative to Zen 3 by an incredible 24%! For comparison, it was 19% higher in Zen 3 than in Zen 2.
If you add the increased frequencies to the IPC growth, you get a 28-37% increase in single-threaded performance! Perhaps this will be the biggest performance increase in generational change of processors ever.
At the same time, there have been no rumors about increasing the number of cores. That is, the conditional Ryzen 9 7950X will probably be 16-core. But it is unlikely to be a problem, considering the increase described above.
Recall, the new desktop CPUs will definitely have an integrated graphics core on the RDNA 2 architecture. It is not yet clear how productive it will be, but it is possible that the Ryzen 7000X will have the iGPU cut, and in a full configuration it will be present in the Ryzen 7000G.
The CPU may be announced as early as Computex 2022 in late May.
