AMD looks set to reveal its next-gen Ryzen 7000 processors at an event on August 5th, and that could spell trouble for its longtime rival Intel.
As TweakTown reports (opens in new tab)AMD mentioned an upcoming “Exclusive Look at Partner Products: A Showcase of The New AM5 Motherboards” event, which will focus on “the launch of AMD Ryzen 7000 Series processors, the new AMD AM5 chipset delivers high power gaming performance, creating, and computationally intensive tasks.”
In addition to showcasing upcoming CPUs, it looks like the event will also look at upcoming motherboards from brands like ASRock, Gigabyte, MSI, and Biostar. They will come with the new AM5 socket, capable of taking full advantage of the new Ryzen 7000 chips, as well as support for DDR5 and PCIe 5.0.
The fight is back
While Intel is still the dominant force in the CPU market, AMD has won accolades – and market share – with its recent Ryzen processors.
So we’re looking forward to seeing what the Ryzen 7000 series processors bring. Not just for the performance boost it will bring to our PCs, but also to see how Intel responds.
Intel is also gearing up to launch its Raptor Lake processor lineup around the same time, which will pit the two former rivals against each other. While Intel remains firmly in the number one spot, AMD has a lot of momentum behind it and has been shrinking its rival’s market share.
Intel is obviously aware of this, so the pressure is on for their Raptor Lake CPUs to really surprise us. From the rumors we’ve seen so far, it looks like this will indeed be the case. With Intel and AMD having major CPU launches this year, it’s an exciting time for people looking to upgrade their PC – or build a new one.
