AMD looks set to unveil its next-generation Ryzen 7000 processors at an August 5 event, and that could pose problems for its longtime rival, Intel.
As TweakTown reports (opens in new tab)AMD has called an upcoming event “Exclusive Look at Partner Products: A Showcase of The New AM5 Motherboards”, which will focus on the “launch of AMD Ryzen 7000 Series processors, the new AMD AM5 chipset offers powerful performance in gaming, creating and intensive computing tasks.”
In addition to showing off the upcoming CPUs, it looks like the event will also look at upcoming motherboards from ASRock, Gigabyte, MSI, and Biostar. These come with the new AM5 socket, which can make the most of the new Ryzen 7000 chips, in addition to DDR5 and PCIe 5.0 support.
The fight has started again
While Intel is still the dominant force in the CPU market, AMD has won praise and market share with its recent Ryzen processors.
So we are curious what the Ryzen 7000 series processors bring. Not just because of the performance gains it brings to our PCs, but also to see how Intel responds.
Intel is also gearing up to launch its Raptor Lake series of processors around the same time, which will pit the two longtime rivals against each other. While Intel remains firmly in the top spot, AMD has a lot of momentum behind it and has cut its rival’s market share.
Intel is clearly aware of this, so the pressure is on its Raptor Lake CPUs to really blow us away. From the rumors we’ve seen so far, it looks like that will indeed be the case. With both Intel and AMD having major CPU releases this year, it’s an exciting time for people looking to upgrade their PC or build a new one.
