The launch of AMD Ryzen7000 processors, which will bring a small revolution to the computer market, is rapidly approaching. Already, there are tests of this system available on the network.
The Ryzen 7000 (Rembrandt), processors are entirely new designs that will replace the Ryzen 5000 models. AMD has provided some details so that we can know more about what to expect.
The new Zen 4 architecture is used in the units. It also supports DDR5 RAM, as well as the PCI-Express 5.0 bus. A new, lower lithographic process will be used by the manufacturer (5 nm rather than 7 nm).
We expect not only an increase in performance but also a better functionality for the platform. Notable is the fact that the motherboards with AM5 sockets will debut alongside the processors.
AMD Ryzen 7700 processor is tested in the benchmark
Although the premier of the processors was scheduled for the second half year, entries in the Phoronix Benchmark Database contain tests of an engineering sample.
The reference platform AMD Splinter RPL was used for testing
I’m referring to an engineering sample codenamed AMD Env Sample 1000-000000666-20_Y. This sample was equipped 8 cores/16 threads running at a speed of 5.2 Ghz. Attention should also be paid to another detail: The processor was equipped with an embedded graphics chip coded “GFX1036” (which would confirm previous leaks).
While the performance of the processor is still a mystery, the performance of integrated graphic (under Linux) has been tested using the Phoronix Test Suite benchmark.
It is unlikely that we will get good performance. Here, the integrated graphics achieved 63.1 fps during the Enemy Territory Quake Wars testing (as a comparison, the Ryzen 9 6900HX processor and Radeon 680M integrated graphics here reach 182 fps).
It appears that the Ryzen 7000 processors will bring a new design, with improved performance and functionality. However, the integrated graphics won’t be the most efficient (most likely it will only be suitable for basic applications).
So, we’re still waiting for news on the new Ryzens. We may find out more at this year’s AMD conference.
