In case you missed it, there was some exciting news that Lisa Su shared yesterday about what's to come with AMD! If you want to see it for your own eyes - check it out here:
AMD Ryzen™ 7000 Series Processors
AMD Ryzen 7000 Series ushers in the speed of “Zen 4” for gamers and creators with pure power to tackle any game or workflow on the digital playground.

September can't come fast enough! What update/release are you looking forward to the most?
I am excited to get my hands on a 7700x. It will take a while to save up but I'll get there.
I really can't wait to see an in-depth analysis of the X670E boards with EXPO. That's a slick name AMD came up with for their version of XMP. I dig it!
Agreed I just wonder if it will be a proprietary thing or if standard higher speed dimms will support it for example a Corsair Vengeance RGB 2 by 16GB 6400Mhz kit. VENGEANCE® RGB 32GB (2x16GB) DDR5 DRAM 6400MHz C38 Memory Kit — Black (corsair.com)
I think it will be open use if I recall reading it. I don't believe AMD will be going to proprietary route so it can have more access for rollout. Don't quote me, but I'm like 90% sure I saw that somwhere. @cpurpe91
I'm digg'n Team Red .. I traded off my Intel 7700k and whatever motherboard I had for it for an ASUS B350 Prime Plus and a Ryzen 1700 .. I was more into video re-encoding and similar stuff back then before Hunt:Showdown sucked me back into PC gaming ... but . .Haven't looked back ever since! I got my wife, daughter and my server on the Red band wagon now ..
I hope to build a new AMD system at the end of the year, perhaps using the 7900X CPU. We'll see how much money I can spend at that time.
@BigAl01 Don't forget to send my 7900 XT when you're making your purchases. 😆
You'll be at the top of my list, once I win a big lottery. Of course, it might help to buy some lottery tickets first.
AMD is the best solution! And he really promises what he says! I have the full amd computer! Processor R5 5000 series and video card all Amd rx 6000 series and in combination with full amd motherboard, everything works great! Congratulations AMD!
Hopefully the availability is decent at launch. I'm assuming it will be since the PC market has cooled down a bit lately.
not really a 7000 series question but still, with regards to the X3D or not, what would be better for unreal 5 a higher core NON-X3D or a lower core count X3D CPU.
normally id say its so obviously go for the higher core count, but since X3d i feel im not so sure anymore
For gaming the X3D variant will almost certainly be faster than any of the traditional variants. Core counts beyond 8 aren't super significant in gaming. Having the extra cache to keep the CPU fed and not reading from RAM is more significant than faster clocks or more threads
Since the X3D versions don't overclock, buying an E series motherboard is unnecessary. The high end VRMs aren't needed and neither is a second PCie graphics slot. X series will be the way to go.
right but I'm specifically talking Unreal Engine 5 for MAKING games not so much playing them, this is where I'm now unsure of which would be better more cores no 3d cache or less cores but with 3d cache.
In that circumstance, more cores will be better. Most of the compile tasks etc. will make use of more cores, so you will see benefit going to 12 and especially 16 over the 8 of the 3D version.
I'm a big fan of Linus Tech Tips, probably because I am a Canadian - but I feel that he provides high-quality content which is very unbiased.
He recently did a comparison of the Ryzen 7000 series and it has some interesting pieces. Such as it's not really AMD vs Intel, but more AMD vs AMD?
So now I contemplate whether I should wait for Zen 4 3D V cache. I am running a Ryzen 7 3700X and I get great frame rates but I want more. I see the Ryzen 7 7700X just decimating the frames of my Zen 2 chip and now I want it.
Realistically I probably won't have enough to upgrade for nearly a year anyway. I just see these frame rates and they make me excited. I just don't like the 95c target temp for multithreaded workloads.
