AMD Zen 4 Ryzen 7000 processors are almost confirmed to release in September this year. As discussed by the AMD chief Lisa Su.
It gives specific mention to their year-on-year revenue increasing by a big 70% in the Q2 2022. While sharing a slide full of graphs, it also points to increase in client (CPU) and gaming (graphics cards) revenue, among other things.
However, all that is not the main issue here. The main issue is the thing discussed in the commentary by the AMD chief Lisa Su in the earnings call transcript.
AMD Zen 4 Ryzen 7000 Release Date
Lisa Su, in the earnings call transcript (something which we managed to find after a lot of efforts), mentions that AMD is going to release the Ryzen 7000 processors in the Q3 of this year. Quoting her:
Looking ahead, we are on track to launch our all-new 5-nanometer Ryzen 7000 desktop processors and AM5 platforms later this quarter, with leadership performance in gaming and content creation.– Lisa Su, AMD CEO.
This almost confirms that AMD Zen 4 Ryzen 7000 series of processors are going to release in the September (at the earliest we expect). It also adds to the previous rumors about the same. Now, whether it’s going to be a soft release – in limited quantities in limited locations, or a proper one. Whether AMD is going to release all main processors together or in subsequent months. All this we can’t say for sure.
What we do know is that AMD Zen 4 Ryzen 7000 processors are coming in September and it’s going to come a month earlier than Intel’s next-gen Raptor Lake processors.
AMD Radeon RX 7000 Graphics Cards Release Date
Lisa Su discussed one more important thing. She suggested that AMD Radeon RX 7000 series graphics cards might be released later this year. Quoting her:
While we expect the gaming graphics market to be down in the third quarter, we remain focused on executing our GPU roadmap, including launching our high-end RDNA three GPUs later this year.
Our next-generation RDNA three architecture is another major step forward for our graphics roadmap, delivering more than a 50% generational improvement in performance per watt by combining our most advanced gaming architecture with 5-nanometer triplet manufacturing.– Lisa Su.
The RDNA 3 GPUs, she mentions, is the tech behind the Radeon RX 7000 series graphics cards.
This is actually a delay. As we had mentioned earlier, the RX 7000 series graphics cards were reportedly going to launch in September this year. This suggests that the release of Ryzen 4000 CPUs are a bigger priority right now for AMD. Another possibility is that AMD is sitting on a big stock of graphics cards which it wants to sell away first, due to slump in industry-wide demand, before releasing the newer generation of higher priced cards in the market. Or maybe, an unlikely issue has happened that AMD just does not have enough GPU manufacturing yields right now.
The other problem is her suggesting that only high-end GPUs would be released this year. Means mainstream budget cards will be released next year.
Having said, whatever maybe the reason for the delay, the claim of 50% performance per watt improvement, even if it being a marketing language, is appreciable, as moving to a 5 nm architecture will have a good amount of benefits behind it.
