In a keynote speech of the Compute Tex 2022, which AMD held on the afternoon of 23rd, the new architecture, Zen 4 -based desktop PC processor, and the Ryzen 7000 series, and details related to the AM5 socket that supports them.
The Ryzen 7000 series is produced through the TSMC 5 nano process and secured a passage for data transfer and power supply through the new socket AM5. It also revealed that the operation clock exceeded 5GHz in the game demonstration.
■ “Ryzen 7000 Series, Operation Clock 5GHz”
“The next -generation Ryzen 7000 processor will support more features and improved performance based on the AM5 platform, and it works with Zen 4 core with excellent power efficiency.”
“The Ryzen 7000 processor can increase the operating clock to more than 5GHz and increase the IPC (the number of instructions per clock) to improve the single thread (1 cores) performance up to 15% compared to the previous generation. “We will also add built -in graphics to the high -performance product line.”
The built -in graphic function is built into a separate chip in charge of I/O (I/O) in the processor and operates on RDNA2. The core of the processor is that the core part is produced in the TSMC 5 nano process, and the chip in charge of I/O is produced in the TSMC 6 nano process.
In the demonstration, the 16 -core Ryzen 7000 processor prototype also released a video that runs the game ‘Ghost Wire: Tokyo’, which was released in March. In this demonstration, the Ryzen 7000 prototype exceeded the operating clock 5.4GHz.
** ■ DDR5 · PCIE 5.0 Support AM5 Socket · New Chipset 3
Since 2016, AMD has applied the AM4 socket to connect Ryzen processors and PC motherboards using pin. However, the Ryzen 7000 series, which will be released in the second half of this year, will be based on the AM5 socket that connects the processor and motherboard instead of pin.
“The AM5 supports 24 DDR5 dual channel memory and 24 PCI Express 5.0 lanes (data transmission passages),” said David McD, vice president of AMD client.
The motherboard chipset that supports AM5 will be released, including the X670E (Extreme), the X670, and the B650. However, the existing processor cooling device is still compatible with the AM5 socket.
“We are collaborating with SSD development that supports PCI Express 5.0 with SSD controller chip manufacturers and SSD manufacturers Crucial (Micron) for fast game loading speed, and will be unveiled at the launch of the motherboard.” “I explained.
■ New APU ‘Men Town’ for entry -level laptops, launch in the fourth quarter of this year
AMD will also launch Mendocino, a new APU for $ 699, from $ 399, optimized for Windows 11 and Google Chrome OS.
Mendo Sino is based on the Zen 2 architecture based on up to 4 cores and 8 threads and combines LPDDR5 memory and RDNA2 graphics chipset. It is also optimized for video codecs mainly used by video conferencing applications such as Microsoft Tims.
AMD said that laptops with Lenovo Idea Pad No. 1 Men Town APU will be supplied from the fourth quarter of this year through major PC manufacturers.
