AMD representative reveals Ryzen 7000's launch date

Has AMD revealed Zen 4/AM5's launch date? 

It looks like AMD's Ryzen 7000 series is launching on September 15th, at least if the image below is to be believed. Here, we have what appears to be an AMD representative briefing retailers and distributors on AMD's Ryzen 7000 series launch, a launch which will see AMD release new Zen 4 processors and new AM5 series motherboards.

AMD's September 15th launch date falls in line with AMD's Fall 2022 launch plans for Zen 4, and makes a lot of sense given RDNA 3's rumoured October-Mid-November release timeframe. AMD released its Ryzen 5000 series shortly before their Radeon RX 6000 series, so it makes sense that history would be repeating itself here.

By the end of this year, AMD fans should be able to build systems with new Ryzen and Radeon products, both of which promise to deliver impressive performance levels.

AMD's new AM5 motherboard platform will be launching alongside AMD's Ryzen 7000 series processors, supporting DDR5 memory exclusively. Right now, it remains to be seen whether or not DRAM manufacturers can supply enough memory to meet consumer demand, or if DDR5 DRAM pricing will lower sufficiently to make DDR5, and Ryzen 7000, seem like a worthy investment. If DDR5 continues to be priced poorly, it will reflect badly on AMD's Ryzen 7000 series processors.

Luckily I bought some DDR5 memory months ago as I knew AMD would release their new CPUs and chipsets later this year.Quote

I don't see the advantage in supporting DDR5 exclusively, this early, when your competitor supports both DDR4 and DDR5.Quote

I think it makes sense. AM5 is going to last AMD a long time. Supporting both DDR4 as well as DDR5 might have been a huge task, and considering how DDR5 is the future, it makes sense in my eyes to support it exclusively.

Also, I get the impression AMD are trying to reshape their brand into something more enthusiast. That's not necessarily best for all consumers, but in reality a Zen 4 8c chip is not likely to be much faster than a 5800X3D in gaming. And seeing as DDR5 doesn't improve gaming performance by very much, gamers can still buy the 5800X3D and not feel like they're getting an inferior system. They can plop it in their B450 motherboard and see a huge performance uplift from their 3600X.

DDR5 prices will come down as well. It's been out for a while now. I don't see this move from AMD as a negativism. I think it's the right move personally.Quote

I think it has a lot more to do with the way AMD CPUs work.

It's been proven that there are performance gains by running your infinity fabric clock up to 3600mhz, because it benefits the CPU as well as the RAM. Not so much the RAM, but more the CPU itself.

So I would imagine going from 3600mhz IF to 5000 and beyond would have hindered the CPU performance. That said, given it doesn't use a traditional memory controller it may not even be possible to make it work on DDR4 any way.Quote
