AMD’s next-gen Ryzen 7000 processors are headed to the retail market with availability reportedly starting from the 15th of September. Based on the Zen 4 core architecture, this chip offers an IPC gain of 8-10% with frequency boosts of over 500MHz over Zen 3, resulting in single-threaded performance gains of 15-20%. Multi-threaded performance is likely to increase by 35-50%.
The Ryzen 7000 lineup will be the first PC offering to leverage TSMC’s 5nm N5 node. In addition to featuring healthy performance per watt improvements, it’ll also be the first AMD architecture to support AVX-512. The L2 cache will be doubled to 1MB but the L3 and L1 should remain mostly unchanged. The load-store bandwidth should also see a healthy boost as indicated in the slide below:
