AMD already gives an indication of which models we can expect at the start of the Ryzen 7000. The Ryzen 9 7950X, the Ryzen 9 7900X, the Ryzen 7 7700X, and the Ryzen 5 7600X can already be found in their own product library. This discovery in the public product library AMD-made VideoCardz. There, marketing material is already marked with the respective models. The model names live up to expectations and match the starting line-up of the Ryzen 5000, with one exception: a “Ryzen 7 7800X” as successor to the Ryzen 7 5800X is missing. Instead, the Ryzen 7 7700X is called, while its predecessor Ryzen 7 5700X (test) only appeared as a latecomer.

Key data not yet known
The models now indirectly confirmed by AMD are not surprising, as they largely live up to expectations. More interesting, but still unknown, are their specifications. At the moment it is assumed that the number of cores corresponds to the respective predecessor so the top model 7950X again has 16 cores and 32 threads.
IPC increase in Zen 4 (Image: AMD) AMD Zen 4 at a glance (Image: AMD) 5.5 GHz in games is not a problem – a single core should clock at least the same (Photo: AMD) It is clear that the new Zen 4 architecture delivers more performance. AMD promised a performance improvement of more than 15 percent in single-thread applications.
The number of instructions per clock cycle (IPC) should only increase by about 8 to 10 percent. Higher clock speeds, AMD spoke of 5.5 GHz, ensure further increases. Thanks to the switch to DDR5 memory, the memory bandwidth is expected to increase enormously. New instructions for artificial intelligence and AVX-512 have been added. While a significant increase in heat dissipation is announced with a TDP of up to 170 watts, AMD also spoke of significant improvements in performance per watt.
More about the AM5 platform coming soon
It’s quite possible that more official information about the Ryzen 7000 will be coming soon. On August 4, AMD wants to present the first motherboards with the new socket AM5 together with motherboard partners Asus, ASRock, Biostar, Gigabyte, and MSI. The flagships with the “dual” X670E chipset are expected. The Ryzen 7000 is expected to be presented again in mid-September, while AMD only speaks of “autumn 2022”. Soon after, the new opponent in the form of Intel Raptor Lake aka Core ix-13xxx is expected.
