Computex 2022 was held over the last three days in collaboration with key technology businesses, and the participating companies presented their future plans as well as some new information.

However, AMD shocked us by revealing the Ryzen 7000 series, a new Zen 4 CPU. This series is the successor to the Ryzen 5000, which was one of the most popular CPU series. AMD also unveiled Mendocino, a new integrated CPU for low-cost laptops based on the Zen 2 architecture.

Dr. Lisa Su, AMD's CEO, announced the latest generation of Ryzen 7000 CPUs during the AMD section at Computex. This generation succeeds the Ryzen 5000 series, which was a huge hit when it first came out and is still producing competitive results today.

In the majority of performance tests The Ryzen 7000 series will have central processors with up to 16 cores and will be manufactured on TSMC's 5 nm Zen 4 chips, making them the first 5 nm processors for desktop PCs.

AMD has said that the AM4 port, which was used in all prior Ryzen series, will be phased out in favor of a new port named “AM5 LGA 1718” in this new series. The technique for putting the new CPU on this port will be similar to Intel's, in which the pins are inserted on the port rather than on the processor, as with prior Ryzen processors.

Although it is a minor change, it will greatly assist in reducing problems caused by improper processor installation, as it will reduce the risk of these teeth breaking or bending during installation or storage, as well as eliminate the problem of the processor sticking to the cooler, which was a common issue with previous generations of Ryzen processors.

AMD also disclosed that this generation's CPUs would all contain integrated graphics processors, with these graphics processors based on AMD's newest graphics architecture, RDNA 2. As a result, processors of this generation can be classified as processing acceleration units (APUs) since, in the absence of an independent graphics processor in the computer, they will give acceptable performance in graphic processing to a great extent.

Because of its computers with integrated graphics processors, Intel was a pioneer in supplying this sort of desktop computer, so we may anticipate AMD to provide homogenous desktop computers that fill enterprises and systems.

In the economic categories, however, AMD surpasses Intel by a significant margin for integrated graphics processors, as graphics processors in chipsets (APUs) compete with a number of standalone graphics processors.


This generation of AMD CPUs will have up to 16 cores and 32 threads, according to AMD. DDR5 RAM will be supported in this generation. PCIe 5.0 lines with 24 CPU lines are also supported in this latest version. As a result, while working with large files, this CPU will provide lightning-fast performance. AMD didn't release all of the information regarding the Zen 4 architecture, but it did say that each core will have 1MB of L2 cache, which is twice as much as Zen 3 CPUs.

In addition to increasing L2 memory capacity, AMD plans to increase processor speeds in this generation, which will be possible thanks to the use of TSMC chips with low manufacturing accuracy of up to 5nm, which will reduce power consumption and high heat while ensuring the processor's ability to work at faster speeds than previous generations.

This generation's speeds are expected to approach 5GHz, according to AMD. This CPU was pushed to speeds of up to 5.5 GHz in the public review that was provided by Dr. Su, which is a significant improvement over the smashing success of the Ryzen 5000 processors to this day, which were working at rates not up to 5 GHz.

Following AMD's announcements, this generation will deliver performance on a single track that is 15% better than the previous generation, according to the Cinebench R23 performance scale, which AMD used to compare the Ryzen 5959X to the Ryzen 7000 generation processor, which has the same number of cores (16 cores). AMD also stated that AI acceleration technology has boosted the AI-driven performance of these new chips.

AMD Mendocino Embedded Processor

AMD has announced its new integrated processor (APU), which is based on the Zen 2 architecture and manufactured to a 6 nanometer precision. This new CPU is dubbed “Mendocino” by the business and will be targeted at low-cost laptops.

This chip's integrated graphics processor will use AMD's RDNA 2 graphics processing architecture, which is the company's most recent graphics architecture. As a result, this CPU will deliver a fairly acceptable gaming experience.

AMD has stated that it plans to incorporate this new chip in laptops priced between $400 and $700, so we may see the first gaming laptops powered by this new processor in the budget category.


This new processor is based on TSMC chips with a manufacturing accuracy of 6 nanometers, which provides optimal performance in terms of energy and heat exchange, which is one of the issues that companies developing laptops face due to the difficulty of incorporating advanced cooling systems into these devices' limited spaces. This processor has four cores and eight threads, and it performs well in CPU-intensive applications and multitasking in general.

LPDDR5 RAM is also supported by this CPU. This new CPU delivers great battery and power consumption performance because to its low manufacturing precision at 6nm, according to AMD. AMD promises that this processor will give a diversified laptop experience that lasts up to 10 hours before the battery has to be recharged.

AMD did not give any further data, like the amount of cores in the integrated graphics processor, but it did announce the release date, which will be in the fourth quarter of this year. Lenovo has revealed that this CPU would be used in their upcoming Ideapad 1 notebook.

AMD's New Chips

AMD also unveiled the AM5 LGA 1718 connector on the new chipset that would support this generation of CPUs. AMD has said that these chipsets would allow for the installation of AM4-compatible cooling. B650 Economy Class, X670 and X670E Advanced Higher Classes are the three chipsets launched by AMD.

DDR5 RAM and PCIe 5.0 lines will be supported by these chipsets. The B650 chip will only support PCIe 5.0 fonts for storage units, but the X670 chip will support both storage and graphics cards, and the X670E chip will support all PCIe 5.0 fonts.

AMD also stated that the X670 chip will be suitable for overclocking enthusiasts, but the X670E chip will be intended for professionals overclocking, and AMD made no mention of overclocking the B650 chip;

there is some concern that this chip may not be originally supportive of overclocking, unlike AMD, which has been distinguished by providing overclocking across all price groups, but this is still unknown because AMD has not revealed the full spec sheet.


AMD has said that this new CPU generation would be available in the fall of 2022.

Final Words

From the limited numbers and details AMD announced about the Ryzen 7000 series of processors, it appears that AMD is still intent on taking the lead in the CPU market. We expect to see a new generation offering unbeatable performance to take the lead in the CPU market once again after the overwhelming success of the previous generation.

Perhaps what sets AMD apart from its competitors is its focus on the economy; even as it announced these top processors, it also disclosed an economy processor that might open up a new economic pricing category for gaming laptops previously exclusively available in the upper price ranges.
