AMD Ryzen 7000 processors are expected earlier than usual this year. There has been speculation about a nominal announcement as early as this month, and a launch in September or even August.
According to DigiTimes, which has many of its own sources in Asia, AMD’s new products will be released in September. This agrees with many early data, although some sources talked about an earlier launch.
Recall, the Ryzen 7000 will move to the Zen 4 architecture, AM5 platform with LGA 1718 implementation, and will also support DDR5 RAM and PCIe 5.0. Initially, of course, the desktop CPUs will come out. Given the launch of mobile Ryzen 6000, which has not yet entered the market en masse, we definitely should not expect Ryzen 7000 for laptops in the same September.
As we said before, the mobile Ryzen 7000 could revolutionize the market if its iGPU is indeed at least roughly equal to the mobile RTX 3060 Max-Q.
As for Intel, its Raptor Lake is expected at the very end of this year if there are no delays.
