AMD Ryzen 7000 processors go into pre-production mode

The information comes from a well-known spiller and concerns the first new-generation Ryzen processor

The AMD Ryzen 5000 processor series arrived in late 2020 and is now being expanded with new SKUs arriving this month. While the sixth-generation Ryzen exists, it didn’t bring desktop solutions because it was limited to laptops. The next series, the AMD Ryzen 7000 “Raphael”, brings news to desktop owners in addition to inaugurating a new outlet, the AM5, and the assembly is already in pre-production according to a known profile of leaks.

THE BenchLeaks posted on Twitter what would be the code for the pre-production version of the AMD Ryzen 7000 processors. In this situation, we are talking specifically about the SKU, and the data reveals a number of kernels in addition to the odd 1024 kb value. cache. This value should not refer to the L3 cache, as the amount is much higher than on any Ryzen 5000 processor.

As for the technical model code, which until then was 96, it now changes to 97 and the term “Stepping 1”, indicating that the processor used is one of the first, or even the first, revealed, albeit informally.

As for the cores, the information published in the publication [email protected] says the supposed Ryzen 7000 “Raphael” processor has 16 cores with no difference between threads, which could mean an 8-core CPU with SMT (Simultaneous Multithreading) enabled, for a total of 16 threads.

The “Raphael” processors of the seventh-generation AMD Ryze are known to be the inauguration of the Zen 4 microarchitecture in addition to the new AM5 connector, which will become the LGA, after five generations using the same AM4 strain using PGA technology. In addition, the Ryzen 7000 processors are manufactured at the 5 nm of the TSMC, unlike the 5 nm of the current generation Ryzen 5000.

The reduction in the manufacturing process should bring a 15% improvement over the current generation to the Ryzen 7000 processors. AMD’s new 7th generation Ryzen processors are expected in the second half of this year and are expected to be close to the 13th generation Intel “Raptor Lake” processors.
