AMD's getting ready to showcase their next-generation Zen 4 Ryzen processors - Here's what you need to know
On August 29th, AMD will be hosting a live event called "together we advance_PCs", where the company plans to premiere their next-generation Ryzen series desktop processors. This event will have AMD's Chair and CEO Lisa Su and CTO Mark Papermaster presenting, alongside other key executives.
At this live event, AMD will be detailing their new "Zen 4" core architecture and will showcase their latest Ryzen series processors alongside their new AM5 motherboard platform. AMD will also be highlighting the advantages of DDR5 memory and PCIe 5.0 connectivity, both of which will be features as part the company's new AM5/Ryzen 7000 platform.
AMD has promised that their latest processors will "drive a new era of performance desktop PCs", signalling that AMD fans should prepare to be impressed. AMD's stream will start at 7 pm ET on August 29th, translating to midnight UK time.
Below is what AMD has to say about their Zen 4/Ryzen 7000 series reveal event.
Today, AMD (NASDAQ: AMD) announced “together we advance_PCs,” a livestream premiere to unveil next generation AMD PC products. Chair and CEO Dr. Lisa Su, CTO and EVP Mark Papermaster, and other AMD executives will present details on the latest "Zen 4" architecture that powers upcoming AMD Ryzen™ processors and the all new AM5 platform built around the latest technologies including DDR5 and PCIe5, all designed to drive a new era of performance desktop PCs.
What to expect from Zen 4
With Zen 4, AMD has promised gamers a significant leap in the single-threaded performance of their processors, having already showcased several Zen 4 processors that offer boost clock speeds of well over 5 GHz. Alongside IPC enhancements, AMD's Zen 4 cores should deliver strong levels of single-threaded performance, which should also translate to stronger multi-threaded performance.
Larger L2 caches on AMD's Zen 4 processors should help to boost Zen 4's performance in specific workloads, taking load of the processor's L3 cache. This will improve memory management for Zen 4, though the real-world performance impact of this change remains unknown. AMD has also enhanced Zen 4 with support for new instruction sets, which includes AVX-512. This will boost AMD's CPU performance in many workloads that were previously considered the exclusive domain of Intel. This change will hit one of Intel's strong points hard, and that is great news for team Ryzen.
We expect AMD to discuss Zen 4 in more detail later this month, and give us real-world performance data for their Ryzen 7000 series processors. Expect us to discuss these announcements when they are made.
