AMD unveils next-generation Ryzen 7000 family of chips with 5nm lithography and Zen 4 architecture for desktop
AMD intends to take the lead with chips based on the Zen 4 architecture that will be available in the near future. These chips will be based on 5-nanometer lithography by TSMC, and therefore, by providing the space needed to accommodate more transistors, a great improvement in processing power will be achieved. The company today unveiled a teaser of the next generation of Raizen 7000 series chips for desktops, known as Raphael.
Series 7000 Advisors, as expected from platform-based LGA socket They use AM5. AMD unveiled a chip of the series in Halo Infinite while all cores passed the 5 GHz benchmark. These chips come with a completely redesigned IHS, in which cuts are made to accommodate unique capacitors. Using the new LGA1718 socket means that the new chips will be compatible with PCIe 5.0 interface and DDR5 RAMs. Despite this major socket design change, AMD claims that the new platform is still compatible with AM4 platform coolers.
The TSMC has said that the 5-nanometer lithography on which the 7000 series chip will be based will result in a 30 percent reduction in power consumption or a 15 percent improvement in performance, and is 1.8 times denser than the current 5000 series chip. AMD has also developed Zen 4-based 5nm designs for data centers, with the exception that it will use the HPC N5 instead of the N7, which performs 1.25 times better.
The Raizen 7000 represents another leap forward for AMD in choosing a name for its desktop chips. This is because there is no 6000 series for desktops, and the reason for this is that the 6000 series chips for laptops introduced at the event come with an improved Zen 3 + architecture based on 6nm lithography, and desktop chips, unlike laptops, were not built from scratch. Release this configuration. Therefore, AMD was forced to do so due to supply problems and delays in the 5-nanometer process. The 7,000 series of consultants will be released in the second half of 2022.
