AMD officially confirms the release window for the Ryzen 7000 CPUs and reaffirms the 2022 launch for high-end RX 7000 RDNA 3 boards
We reported a few days ago that AMD is allegedly gearing up to release the Ryzen 7000 “Raphael” CPUs on September 15. Giving credibly to the report, AMD has now officially confirmed that the Zen 4-based Ryzen 7000 chips will make an appearance this quarter.
During a quarterly earnings call for Q2 2022, AMD CEO Lisa Su announced, “Looking ahead, we're on track to launch our all-new 5nm Ryzen 7000 desktop processors and AM5 platforms later this quarter with leadership performance in gaming and content creation.” Since we are only eight weeks away from the end of the current quarter (Q3), we can expect AMD to release the Ryzen 7000 chips before the end of September.
Lisa Su also confirmed that AMD is on track to launch the RDNA 3-based Radeon RX 7000 series GPUs this year, “While we expect the gaming graphics market to be down in the third quarter, we remain focused on executing our GPU roadmap, including launching our high-end RDNA 3 GPU later this year." This is in line with our previous report that the high-end Navi 31 boards will reportedly break cover between mid-October and November, while low-end/midrange Navi 33 GPUs may slip into 2023.
