News hardware AMD: the price of Ryzen 7000 processors are lower than we could imagine!
AMD continues to surprise us! We are all eagerly awaiting the new generation of processors from the tech giant and obviously, we are learning more about its specifications day by day. Today, it is the turn of the introductory prices to leak on the web.
AMD Ryzen 7000 processors, powerful and cheaper
After information on their release dates, we know even more about the new generation processors made in AMD.
The first batch of Ryzen 7000 chips should present us with the following models:
- Ryzen 9 7950X
- Ryzen 9 7900X
- Ryzen 7 7700X
- Ryzen5 7600X
The other processors of the 7000 generation should present themselves to us in the months following the release of this first wave.
It is via the WCCFTech site that we learn the potential prices of the AMD Ryzen 7000 chips.
|Ryzen 9 7950X||$700|
|Ryzen 9 7900X||$600|
|Ryzen 7 7700X||$300|
If AMD proves this rumor right, it means the brand is losing around $100 to $50 for each processor compared to their 5000 generation counterparts.
What do we know about AMD Ryzen 7000 processors?
AMD Ryzen 7000 “Raphael” processors should land next September, around September 15 if we believe the rumors that leaked following an AMD conference in China last June.
On the menu, obviously power. AMD Ryzen 7000 processors take advantage of the all-new Zen 4 architecture, with a classic formula of 16 cores, but which could easily exceed 5 GHz in turbo frequency.
Compatible with AM5 and AM4 motherboardsAMD supplants Intel and its 13th generation of processors which should land towards the end of 2022.
Be aware, however, that if you get an AM5 compatible motherboard, the Ryzen 7000 processors should benefit from higher performance (15% for each core).
These chips engraved in 6 nm will benefit from an IGPU RDN 2, which offers good graphics power. If you make a configuration at that time, you will only have to wait a month or two to take advantage of the new AMD RX 7000 graphics cards or the famous RTX 4090 which should point the tip of its nose here. late October/early November.
Even though Intel is capitalizing on its loyal customers, the more affordable price of AMD components could make more than one PC gamer’s head spin. AMD has caught up, especially on the temperature of its processors with the previous generation, and it is clear that the power of these processors could easily stand up to the wave of 13th generation Intel processors that will land at the end of the year.
For the moment, we will have to wait until mid-September to have confirmation of these rumors. But the many sources seem to point us in the right direction. We sincerely hope that AMD processors will be more powerful than ever and at much more affordable prices.
After the shortages that hit us hard following COVID19, the tensions between China and Taiwan, where the manufacturers of AMD chips (TSMC) are located, could well plunge us once again into a jungle of prices, more exorbitant than ever. .
