As every second passes, we are inching closer to AMD’s next-gen Zen4 announcement. Today, we have come the ‘alleged’ pricing for the Ryzen 7000 CPUs. You can read more about it here.
- R9 7950X $799
- R9 7900X $549
- R7 7700X $449
- R5 7600X $299
Just 8 hours before the actual announcement, we now have the leaked release dates for these CPUs. Initially, AMD planned to launch its Zen4 lineup on the 15th of September. However, citing BIOS-related issues, this date was pushed back to to the end of September.
The New Release Date
Wccftech once again from one of its sources claims that AMD’s Ryzen 7000 CPUs will hit the shelves by the 15th of September. Only the motherboards suffering from the BIOS issues shall be delayed by no more than 2 weeks. Essentially, Zen4’s arrival will be divided into 3 segments.
- Ryzen 7000 CPUs Launch Date – 15th September, 2022
- AM5 X670 Motherboard(s) Lauch Date – 27th September, 2022
- AM5 B650 Motherboard(s) Launch Date – 10th October, 2022
Similarly, we now know that AMD is reportedly producing B650E ‘Extreme’ motherboards. You can read more about it here.
A Major Hurdle
This is massive if true. Basically, we get to witness the full power of Zen4 two weeks earlier. But…..How in the world are we supposed to use the CPU without the supporting motherboard?
Maybe AMD wants us to have a good look at the chip before we place it in the motherboard. I mean, how often do we see our CPU after placing it inside the motherboard? The only way to verify such claims is to wait for team red’s live stream.
AMD’s Zen4 is being announced in less than 8 hours at 7:00 PM ET (Eastern Time). For live updates and coverages, be sure to visit Appuals.
