Every AMD Zen 4 CPU may all launch at once
New reports from a reliable tech leaker “Moore's law is dead” on YouTube suggest that every single new Zen 4 CPU may launch at the same time.
Every AMD Zen 4 CPU may all launch at once, But what does this mean? The release of AMD’s Zen 4 CPUs is just around the corner, the launch date is rumored to be September 15th, 2022. But AMD has yet to officially confirm a launch date.
This release has been kept well under wraps, but as the suspected release date draws nearer, new information is starting to slip through the cracks despite AMD’s best effort to keep this information a secret.
Now read AMD Zen 4: what we know.
Popular leaker “Moore’s law is dead” on Youtube has their own ideas around the launch of Zen 4. They claim that AMD is currently planning on launching the entire AMD Ryzen 7000 line-up simultaneously, rather than opting for the staggered release we’ve come to expect.
If this proves to be true, this could give AMD a big advantage over Intel and its imminent 13th generation launch. We don’t know when Intel is planning its launch either, but there are speculations it might try and cut AMD off as they did with the 5800X3D.
Zen 4 SKUs
Despite all this, we still don’t know what or how many SKUs there are going to be in the Zen 4 line-up. With that being said, we can still make some estimations based on historical data.
The Zen 4 line-up should at least consist of:
AMD Ryzen 9
- Ryzen 9 7950X
- Ryzen 9 7900X
AMD Ryzen 7
- Ryzen 7 7800X
- Ryzen 7 7700X
AMD Ryzen 5
- Ryzen 5 7600X
AMD Ryzen 3
We don’t know if there will be any Ryzen 3 solutions this time around since the Zen 3 Ryxen 5000 series skipped Ryzen 3 on the desktop altogether.
Whilst we still don’t know how many SKUs there are in the Zen 4 line-up, we do have some information about the AM5 motherboards. You can find all the information we have in our AMD AM5 article.
AM5 will consist of three initial chipsets:
- X670E (extreme) is the best of the best, featuring all the connectivity powered by the latest and fastest technology – DDR5, PCIe 5 – and the most extreme overclocking potential.
- X670 will feature some PCIe gen 5 connectivity, but not all PCIe or M.2 slots. X670 will also most likely have less connectivity, but will still feature strong overclocking potential
- B650 is the budget option, being a more bare-bones motherboard with less connectivity. The perfect balance of price point and capability – featuring all the connectivity that AM5 has to offer, but none or much less of the overclocking capabilities.
AM5 is the socket in which the new AMd Zen 4 CPUs will sit. If you want to learn more, please take a look at our AM5 article.
Zen 4 3D
We know that AMD has some unfinished business with its 3D V-cache. As it’s been rumored that the Zen 4 line-up will be getting iterations equipped with 3D V-cache in early 2023. We just wanted to clarify that we don’t think these SKUs will launch with the standard Zen 4 CPUs unfortunately.
Zen 4 is coming and we’re incredibly excited about it. The prospect that every Zen 4 CPU could be launched all at once makes sense, because we know that AMD has some unfinished Zen 4 3D models up its sleeve to release early next year. If these rumors prove to be true then we know we’ll be busy for a good few weeks at least.
If Zen 4 doesn’t tickle your fancy, AMD’s new Zen 3D processors might. We have an article here for you to read all about it.
